Can anyone advise me how to start PPC advertising on tripadvisor? I have searched their site which returns information on contextual advertising, and free hotel listings, but not PPC. I have tried emailing them but got no response.
I believe tripadvisor is owned by AskJeeves, do I maybe have to advertise through AdWords search network to get listed?
Just in case anyone is curious about this in the future..... I had no help from TripAdvisor about how to have sponsored links on their site, only how to do a link exchange system.
Ask Jeeves said they did not own TripAdvisor and Google said they were not part of their Search Network. However, after I switched my Search Network on in Adwords, my analysis software reports that traffic is being referred from TripAdvisor from my AdWords campaign.
So in a nutshell if you want sponsored links to appear on TripAdvisor, use AdWords Search Network.
TripAdvisor must receive a lot of traffic - good for them. It's always good if an online advertiser can manage to drill down to a vertical level that converts. An affiliate relationship would be good to have.
