Just like in Google, when people search for properties similar to yours, your listing appears in a certain position. The earlier your property appears, the more possibilities you have to rent your place. Vayoo gives you that “Search Position” so you can improve it.
The "Search Position" is an average of the next 21 days in which your property has not been booked yet when searching it with no filters. This means that your property might appear earlier when using filters such as price, the number of rooms and other characteristics.
If your listing appears among the first 2 pages, your search position will be "Excellent", if your announce appears between the 3rd and 10th page, it will be "Good," if it appears between the 10th and the 18th, the search position will be "Bad." If your listing appears after the page 18th [∞] you will have difficulties in renting your place.
There are many ways to improve your search results. The first important thing to understand is that the Airbnb Search engine works like Google. It has more than 200 variants and therefore there is no a specific way of improving your position. It is more a combination of things.
Let's sum up the most powerful tips:
1.- Be an active host: update your calendar on a weekly/monthly basis and answer as quick as possible to your potential guest
2.- Switch-on instant booking
3.- Competitive pricing
