how long before reviews get posted?

Quick question - does anyone know how long it takes to have a review posted? I wrote one Sunday am and it still hasn't been posted (another post was from a stay after i wrote mine)

It depends if you attached photos or not. It takes longer if you added photos.

The Timing depends on a lot of factors, I would contact TA support if you want more info.

Usually one day.

They usually send an e mail to confirm a review has been posted.

I did send a review and it was never posted.

Suggest you post again.

Sunday to Thursday isn't very long -- especially in summer. TA gets something like 11,000 reviews a DAY!!

TA usually sends out an email that you have to respond to -- at least with the first review. Did you get one? (Possibily check your spam folder.)

Here's the link to the Support Forum. The regulars over there are volunteers, not TA staff but they are pretty knowledgeable on the ins and outs of getting reviews posted. (If you page through the forum you'll probably see a similar question.) tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g1-i12105-TripAdvi…

Snowbunny, you can't compare how long your review took to post with another members' . There are lots of factors that make a review go up faster or more slowly - including auto filters that "look" for certain words or phrases.

Be sure to respond to any confirmation email you may get from TA and note that sometimes your spam filter will catch these, so check that also.

This is your first review and sometimes (but not always!) first reviews take longer to be posted. Wait about 10 days and if it still has not been posted, then contact Support through the Help Center.

I wrote a few reviews, and they took several days to show up.
