The travel and tourism industries are booming, and online travel content is already a vital part of this sector’s activity and profits. TravelWeekly reports that 80% of people book their trips and holidays online and that nine out of ten people research their holiday online before booking; what content marketers need to understand is that the latter leads to the former.
So, how do these texts affect your readers? Appealing and expertly crafted destination descriptions, city guides, points-of-interest articles, and hotel descriptions work to inspire wanderlust in readers and persuade them to book the holiday they want. Furthermore, content which gives reliable information about transport routes (air, bus, and boat), airlines, airports, and other aspects of travel is what further convinces the reader that they have all the information they need to hit “book”. It’s the readers’ online research which affects their buying behaviour, so if you’re a travel service provider with the right travel content, you’re also likely to have healthy booking and conversion rates.
SEO travel content: what do the search engine robots make of it?
What about travel content’s impact on SEO?
So, these texts have a strong effect on the purchasing behaviour of the people reading them, but how do they impact the search engine crawlers ranking your site for the SERPs? The fact that the travel and tourism industry is thriving also means that it is a somewhat oversaturated market when it comes to travel-related sites, so the SEO strategy for travel content is highly important, and its exact approach should be determined by your company goals.
It comes down to one of the most basic rules of SEO content: think (and research) what your wider base of potential customers will enter into a search engine and make sure those words lead to your site. Don’t be afraid to cast the net wide and use long-form copy like travel blogs, destination descriptions, and city guides that have the scope to include less specific and less competitive keyword phrases that your potential customers might be searching for. For example: trying to sell a hotel room in Beijing? Why not include an article on “Beijing Street Food” to pull in those cuisine enthusiasts researching for their trip? Trying to sell a flight? Why not publish a rich, sensory, colourful description of the flight's destination which signs off neatly with an interlink to your flight schedule or booking page? Draw readers in, show them what they want, and give them the chance to reach out and grab it on your site.
