How can I optimize my RV listing for the search results? Updated November 09, 2022 17:21 Whether this is your first season with RVezy or you are looking to get more from your listing, one of the most important things to keep in mind is your position in the search results. This is where potential guests will find you when searching for RVs in your area! The best way to ensure your listing is successful on RVezy is to be proactive in all things by making use of all of the features that give you full control of your listing. As a host of RVezy, the position of your RV in the search will be determined by how proactive you are in managing your listing. We try to measure this in a few ways, all of which we’ve broken down for you below. If you want to get the most out of your RV year-round, you’ll want to make sure you’ve covered all of your bases. Optimizing your listing There are lots of ways to optimize your listing. You can do this by experimenting with pricing, add-ons, or discounts as well as customized offers. Keep in mind that you should make sure to have all of these factors in place first so your RV stays as close to the top of the search as possible. Here’s a quick checklist of the factors we use to arrange search results: Number of photos Response rate Acceptance rate [expired bookings] Using the app As we develop the search algorithm on the site and make changes to the way we rank local listings, we will always keep you updated on anything you need to know. Number of photos Having six or more clear photos on your listing will not only improve your search results but attract more guests to your listing. Make sure your pictures give guests the full layout of your RV and make sure it looks clean and tidy. Show off your best features and what makes your RV special - show off the living areas, amenities, and features guests will love. Response rate Your response rate is one of the easiest ways to improve your search results: the faster you respond to a guest’s questions or requests, the better - and you should feel free to decline anything that doesn't work for you and your schedule. We keep track of this because 90% of guests book with the host that responds and communicates with them first, and they leave the best reviews for responsive and helpful hosts. Acceptance rate [expired bookings] While declining bookings will not affect your position at all, letting them expire will. Being proactive in declining bookings will keep your RV higher in the search results. You will still be able to continue talking with prospective guests and send them tailored offers when they're ready. Active and responsive hosts will always stay near the top of searches for their location. App download Another way for us to measure and place the best hosts' RVs is whether or not you’re using the app to message guests, update your listing, and receive notifications. This will help your search rankings as well as ensure you never miss a potential booking while you’re on the go. These are the current ways in which we measure host responsiveness, and you can do lots more to improve your chances with guests. Keeping your calendar up to date, setting a minimum number of nights, and explaining your policies and preferences in your listing description can also help improve the rental demands for your RV.
