what you can do to promote tourism where you are is search in the forum section of TA for your town/area etc and then add comments of things to do (as who knows more about our area than we do?) When I have the time I do and you can use it to promote yourself a bit. If you do it a lot you can reach expert status but I don't have that much time lol. (and use your power for good)
Got us a wiki travel now - http://wikitravel.org/en/Cannon_Falls
And got us a TA forum for my town. And is it any wonder why we get so few google searches for our town and B&B etc. No one knows we even exist hahahha.
Todd, thanks for posting this. Honestly I had not heard of this site but with wiki being so popular I am sure this site will be highly used when populated. I checked my city, it is there but very, very little info on it so I plan to spend some time populating it as well as some neighboring areas that will be of benefit.
I glanced to the right and happened to spot MY google ad right there so I NEED to ad value to this page so it is seen!
The chamber of commerce emailed it out to the members. So I was overseeing some updates last night. It is a fun way for me to get on their radar.
Sidebar - I got to thinking, if the winery, pottery, etc in town get better SE placement then maybe we get more traffic and notice and at the end of the line more people want to stay here. So now trying to think about more then myself when placings ads or links etc.
