Start improving your listing’s position in the search results by:

  • Accepting as many requests as possible
  • Responding quickly to all requests
  • Keeping your calendar updated. If you get booking requests for dates that aren’t available, you’ll have to reject them, lowering your acceptance rate.
  • Ask your guests to review your property. Travelers show a strong preference for listings with more reviews.
