I can't find my B&B so I can't register as Owner

Hi. I have a B&B, so to add my business on Tripadvisor I created a listing on HolidayLettings, as suggested. I did this the first of July and three days later I received a welcome email from Tripadvisor. From my owner account on HolidayLettings I have the direct link to my business on Tripadvisor, but I can't find it using the Tripadvisor search engine.

As I understand, to create a Onwer Account on Tripadvisor, I have to link the business. This process starts from searching your business with their search engine, so I cannot proceed because it doesn't work.

What should I do? Thanks!

If your business is listed via hollidaylettings, you do not need to register as an owner on ta. In fact, you can't, they prevent it.

Thank you very much for your reply. This is one of the two problems though. My business is not searchable through Tripadvisor. The page does exist (direct link), but I cannot search it using the search engine. Why?

I think holidaylettings listing sync up once a week or so, it might be that.

Why not tell us the name of the listing and location so some of the good folk here can see if they can find it?

Fact is, it's been 20 days since my listing on HolidayLettings.

Sure! My B&B is called "L'Appartamento Romano", it is in Rome, Italy. Thank you so much for your help!

I don't speak the language, but is this the listing?

It is! Did you find it on Google or via the Tripadvisor search engine?

That was found via Google. It could be that the search engine on ta hasn't been updated yet. It's not most robust search engine, sorry.

I let others answer that one, I'm sorry I'm not that familiar with the health of the ta search system nowadays.
