Reviews can be published in as little as a day, but can also take a few weeks depending on TA staff workload. TA receives an average of 11,000+ reviews per day.

In case TA sends you a verification email, make sure TA has your correct email address and that no mail from TA gets caught up in your spam filter. You have to click on the link in the email to confirm your review. If you don't click the link in the email within the stipulated time frame your review will be deleted.

Welcome to TripAdvisor, fastfoodking;

Unlike forum posts, such as this, reviews are NOT posted to the site immediately. All reviews are vetted for compliance with the guidelines before posting.

Also, reviews from new users can, and usually are, a bit slower to be posted.

Have you looked in the "Contributions" area on your profile page to see if the review is showing as "Pending" ?

If your review shows as pending, it has not yet been vetted by TA staff.

Best Regards

I calculated a while back that TripAdvisor has averaged more than 29,000 reviews per day since its inception.

hoogo

I think if that was the case TA would not be using the 11,000+ figures

I think your figure was calculated using the 150 million figure on the fact sheet which is the total of reviews and opinions and not just reviews

Where does TripAdvisor use the 11,000 figure?

I have seen it is the past but cannot find it for the moment

in the Help Centre they say "over 100 million reviews"

I still think there is a distinction between review and opinions otherwise they would not use that wording on their Fact Sheet

If they have published 100,000,000 reviews they have averaged more than 19,000 reviews per day since TripAdvisor's inception in 2000. I think it is past time to drop the 11,000+ reviews per day statement.

I agree

I wonder if they include the standalone ratings as opinions?

29,000 is indeed 11,000+

It is 11,000 + 18,000......

Back to fastfoodking; welcome to TripAdvisor. Can you see if any of the reviews are pending on your Contributions page? If you don't know how to find it, just ask.
