From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello and welcome to Wikitravel. Please take a look at Welcome, business owners and Wikitravel:Don't tout.

Wikitravel is not meant to be a yellow pages, nor an advertising brochure, so please do not add listings for your business that have flowery, promotional language or that lack any useful information, in particular price ranges for rooms. Also do not list your listing more than once, and do not list it in a city other than the one it actually is in. Lastly, please do not include the city, state, and zip code in the address field. While yes, this is good for your search engine optimization, this is straightforwardly inappropriate on Wikitravel, since the article name should indicate what city it is in.

Edits that do not follow these guidelines will be reverted. --Peter Talk 12:29, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

Seriously, though, if you don't include price ranges, I will revert your edits.
A few more things: Your hotel's name does not need to be repeated in the description. Please avoid describing your hotel as being "located near prominent attractions." If it is across the street from a major attraction, say that—otherwise let your address do the talking. Do not list every mundane amenity your hotel offers—no one cares about your desk chairs or coffee makers, or the "high speed" internet. Don't describe the town in your listing—it should already be described in the rest of the article. --Peter Talk 15:32, 7 July 2009 (EDT)
I must ask, why do you continue with these edits, knowing that they will just be reverted? Why waste your time and others'? This happens all the time, and I'd love to have the insight of an actual hotel spammer, so please do answer this question. --Peter Talk 15:47, 7 July 2009 (EDT)
