I can't believe how well my travel agent clients are doing, we make all their sites destination specific and they're getting more leads than they can handle (except for a fiji site, but they can't blame the government coup on me, I have a client's site in the top 10 on 7 engines for the keyphrase "denver real estate" and they're only getting a fraction of the leads (and traffic) that the travel sites generate.

Maybe I should go back to college to become a travel agent

The number of Americans who bought travel online last year grew to 21 million people, nearly doubling the Internet travel market for the second consecutive year, according to The PhoCusWright 2000 Travel E-Commerce Survey.

"Despite all the recent talk of 'easy dot com, easy dot go,' it's amazing that online travel buying has been embraced by one-tenth of the adult population," said Philip Wolf, president and CEO of PhoCusWright. "Consumers continue to defy the skeptics with an insatiable appetite for anything and everything online travel."
