To increase your chances of being listed on Travel Notes, it helps
if you submit the right form.
Choosing the right submission form is the first step in getting a
possible listing on Travel Notes. There's also a contact form for General
There are no robots at Travel Notes, so a human actually takes the
time to look at all website submissions.
And it does take time.
|| A little something in the cookie jar
While general travel listings are free, it is appreciated if you link to Travel Notes.
Because the listings are free we do get a lot of submissions and can
not say how long it will take before we get to review your website.
Sites linking back to Travel Notes are looked on favourably, but at
the end of the day it's still the quality of the website (and website submission) that
Listings need to have real travel content and not
just be affiliate cloaks.
Offering travel tips and travel discounts may also help your submission.
A small donation does help speed up the review
Non-commercial travel websites: $18.
Local tour operators and tour guides: $35.
Small hotel, guest house or holiday rental: $40.
Travel agents and booking companies: $55.
Paying a little something for the review process is just that, a
donation for a service and not a guarantee of a listing; although a personalised e-mail
reply will be given.
Ideal for corporate customers and Internet marketing strategists.
Your premium listing ($120) will be enhanced with a thumbnail image of
your website, so make sure your homepage looks smart.
Premium listings may also include an e-Business card; listing all your
major social media channels and a few deep links, at our discretion.
The last eight premium listings also earn extra skyscraper ad exposure around the Travel
Notes Internet property; until they get knocked off the list by others.
Internet Marketing - Premium Listing Bundle

This should be the name of the person submitting the form, not the
company or website name.
Title, Description and Keywords
Please keep your suggested title short and snappy; your
description brief and meaningful; and your keywords (tags) to a maximum of five.
A lot of people fail to provide us with a description, or adequate
details where asked.
A list of repeated keywords in the description field, that makes no
sense at all, will only help your submission get rejected.
While some personal pages are better presented than a few of the
'official' websites we've seen, they're often let down by where they're hosted.
The best advice we can give you is to get your own domain name - they
really are so cheap these days - and pay a little extra for hosting.
If you do have your own domain name you're more serious about your web
presence, so forget about redirecting it to a free web host. They may do your reputation
more harm than good.
Don't just think that putting up the web site, promoting it a
little and getting clicks is enough.
Visitors to your domain like to feel that there's someone there to
talk to and may want to ask questions or make comments on the things they don't like or
Make sure you have an about page and e-mail link, or a contact form
set up to receive comments from visitors.
They will feel more a part of your site and may come back again, if
they know who's behind the content and can actually contact you if they need to.
Don't look at similar sites to yours as competition. Choose links
that complement your site, to help your visitor find what they're looking for.
Hyperlinks are a way of bringing related documents together and we do
appreciate it when you link to Travel Notes.
Having said that, five to twenty long pages of totally unrelated links
will not be helping your visitors at all.
All the useless 'link-trading' doesn't really help your page rankings
either, no matter what the link spammers try to tell you.
We know who some of these people are and if we see their links on your
site, the chances are that you won't be listed on Travel Notes.
Just a Reminder
We won't reply to e-mails asking why a website wasn't listed unless
you've made a small donation through Pay Pal, or paid for a premium listing.
If you don't get listed, you could try advertising
on Travel Notes.
