100 Top Hotel sites

One of the blogs I read regularly is THE BOOT by Tim Hughes.

Recently Tim posted an article on a site that claims to rank the top 100 hotel sites.
If you love a list of hotel sites, you’ll like (and hate) TOP 100 HOTEL SITES

Using one of my SEO test sites I set up a link as the TOp 100 requested and lo-and-behold I’m at number 309:
http://www.top100hotel.com/www.bellhop.co.nz.html

So a site about New Zealand Hotels is the 309th most popular hotel site on the planet.

It’s even more popular than rooms-manager.com (Number 312) which describes itself as:

“ROOMS-MANAGER.COM, part of Priceline.com (Nasdaq:PCLN) is Europe‚Äôs leading online hotel reservations agency by room nights sold, attracting over 15 million unique visitors each month via the Internet from both leisure and business markets worldwide.

Established in 1996, ROOMS-MANAGER.COM offers competitive rates for any type of property, ranging from small independent hotels through to a five star luxury. The site is available in 15 languages and offers over 30,000 hotels in more than 8,000 destinations.”

Update 4 Sept 2007: I’m now number 205, rising fast.

Rating: 3550 points* (was 3650 so someone has removed me …)

Update 12 Oct 2007: I’m now down to number 244. Looks like my popularity is fading ..

*amount mentions of word ‘www.bellhop.co.nz’ on the other websites

Update 3 August 2008: Looks like it’s time to remove it. I’m number 1660… nto getting much benefit from it now.
