The program, which shows pricing, availability and map information simultaneously when a consumer performs a search, is now accessible to individual hoteliers via the renowned CRS seekda connect.
seekda provides technology for hotels to input and display the necessary information on these Google sites, including a link to the booking engine on the hotels own website. With this seekda service, it is straightforward for hotel owners to control their budgets within the transparent cost-per-click advertising model. seekda connect links hotel websites directly from Google, with no commission charges for hoteliers. A full range of products can be supported from simple individual room bookings to more complex packages.
Easy and quick bookings
Googles offering, an experiment with a limited set of partners, lets users search for hotels and see real prices on selected listings. Users who click on the price see a list of advertisers who have provided pricing information for that hotel, indicated by the “Sponsored” text, and can click through to reserve a room on the advertisers site. The hotel itself can now be one of these advertisers.
As part of Google’s commitment to providing users with relevant information and improving our advertising offerings for businesses, we are pleased that seekda has joined our effort to show hotel prices on Google. To further serve and attract travelers, seekda has worked hard to integrate their hotel pricing and availability data into our system and make it easy for users to customize, compare and complete hotel reservations online, states Matt Klainer, senior manager for business development, Google.
