They have a new thing that shows "Compare direct click-throughs to your URL against the performance of local competitors". We must not have local competitors as we show zero difference compared to them for the last twelve months. I doubt anyone can find the link with all of the other stuff on the page and now they have this add that slides out and advertises a competitor.

Anyways we are up for renewal... Can't find a renewal button or cost so doubt I will do it. At least with paying we were finally able to get photos on the listing.

PS aren't these the guys who auto renew???

We have always been able to provide photos, and plenty of them. All of us can.

Ours were goofed up and even after calling and working with them we couldn't get it sorted. I assumed it was a ploy to get us sign up as once we did, it worked fine.

They really don't provide stats. They compare you to your competition. Which we are right on the average every month so I assume we are compared to no one as it is not possible that we are perfectly average. Others get press so would have spikes or promotions or .. I get more clicks to our site from here then from TA.. They are pretty far down in our system obviously. It is great that people can see our reviews and have some comfort from others when they come visit us. I use the site when I travel. I just hate that the person has to know what they are doing to avoid all the false stuff that makes it look like they book us right there etc.

So how did they do lets say, in comparison to any of the national directories you are listed with?  And did you check their stats with your stats?  I find the ones on be dandbrea fast.com to not match my stats most the time.  Somehow they seem to show more views, can't imagine why that is? wink

YES! They auto renew so you have to log into your mgmt account and get the phone number to call them.
