Blogs and Travellers

By
Real Estate Agent with Coastal Properties Group International

We've seen the increasing effect of real estate blogs and particularly ActiveRain blogs. A recent article in the St. Petersburg Times talked about the effect that bloggers are having on business travel and talked about the potential for bloggers to change entire industries.

Travel bloggers are telling the truth about overpriced airline seats, misrepresented hotel offerings, etc. According to the article, Marriott now has an employee whose job it is to check on anything written in blogs about Marriott.

Maybe we need to check to see what people are saying about us...

Good post Sharon and so true!  It's very easy to get additional information about places you are visiting, just by doing a Google search.

People will be checking on us, that's why I use google to deliver a search on my name everyday.  I want to be the first to know who's talking!

Sharon: Good post.  Gives me impetus to check blogs before I travel, not just the chamber or visitor bureau sites. 

Oh Kristal ... that is a good idea.  I often check my Google rankings for my key words, but not MY name.  Thanks for the tip.
