Requesting Trip Advisor to add a new Review

I was a bit surprised, after having asked you to add "Treasures of the Earth" to Trip Advisor as a new attraction review a few days ago, to find that there were three previous reviews, one dating back to February 2010. As I have several other "attractions" that I would like to request Trip Advisor to add as reviews, may I ask when do you decide that a request is worth adding?

Regards

Hi there

Adding an attraction/establishment is entirely different to adding a review.

It needs to be listed before you can review it as you may find out when you come to submit your review.

Follow the instructions before you to submit the attraction/establishment for listing.

If you have any further problems, please post back and we'll try and help you.

Hi there,

I think you are asking how TA decides when to list a business, and when to decline it. Well the answer is TA had a set of criteria a business must meet in order to be listed. Each category has its own set of criteria. When a member suggests a business be listed, they compare their criteria to the business, and if out passes, they will add it.

You can read the list of criteria TA uses on this webpage: www.tripadvisor.com/pages/getlisted.html

I hope that helps

Noah.

Thanks for that, but I am still bamboozled by the fact that I was the 4th reviewer, the first dating to 10 months before me, and the attraction was not added to Trip Advisor until I asked. Weird?!

George.

Are you talking about the place in Jersey? If so, its been listed on TA since 2009. You may not have found it before, but out was here got people to review.

Also indicating that it was here before you asked - it normally takes many weeks top get a new listing added. A few days just isn't enough time.

Hi

Thanks again for the response.

No, the attraction was http://www.treasuresoftheearth.co.uk/ in Corpach, a remote part of Scotland, near Fort William.

Do you know why it normally takes many weeks to get a listing added? Is it just the quantity of requests submitted and the amount of checking that is required?

Hello,

Can you specify how can I request adding new attraction/hotel/restaurant to be posted on Tripadvisor?

Thanks in advance,

Jelena

Hi Jelena and welcome to the forums.

Some general information about adding new properties to TripAdvisor:

The property must first be listed on TripAdvisor before you can write a review about it.

First, check the listing - many cities have additional listings on the last few pages which may not yet have been reviewed, and those will be on the last page(s) in small blue print, but not in alphabetical order. You can also use the search box at the top right of this page. It’s a good idea to try several spellings.

Then, start with this page:

http://www.tripadvisor.com/UserReview-e__2F__

(Note - The 'Hotels' category includes *all* types of lodging.)

When you fill out the submission form, at the bottom of the form you'll see an empty box. Use that to add additional information such as a telephone number, the URL for a review on any other website, or a reference in a city website. The more information you provide to TripAdvisor, the easier it is for staff to verify and add the property.

TA *usually* will send you an email when the property is listed. However, this does NOT always happen. Check the review listing if you do not hear from TA within a couple of weeks. Look at the last page(s), since a new listing will be placed at the bottom of the list, and will not be in alphabetical order.

Properties that are located in the USA or Canada seem to get added quite quickly, often within one week. Properties in other countries, especially non-English speaking ones, tend to take longer - up to a month. If a property does not have an English language website it will take longer to appear.

** Note: At the present time, there seems to be a “glitch” with the email notification system, so be sure to frequently check the review listing page to see if the new property has been added.

Thanks for taking the time and interest to add new properties to TripAdvisor :-)
