It is a time-consuming and often frustrating task that can take away all the excitement related to deserved time off.

Project configuration is the key

We always trot it out to our customers. A proper project configuration is the most important step when starting monitoring anything on the Internet. Picking the right keywords guarantee the tool collects all mentions that are crucial to you.

DSC_1966In the case of holiday research, there are a few alternative options to set up a project. Depending on what is the most important factor in decision process, you should choose different keywords.

In this case, the user was focused only on the two Greek islands so he entered them as main keywords. Naturally, if he had left it without required and excluded keywords, he would have got too many results that would include more content than only holiday offers. That’s why it is important to add phrases that curb results to those that are related to traveling deals. In this case, required words included: “last, minute”, “cheap”, “all, inclusive”.

However, if you do not care about specific destination, I recommend to add “last minute”, “all inclusive” etc. in main keywords and “holiday” as required keyword. You can also modify configuration. For instance, if you want to go to any direction except for Greece and Italy you just need to include these countries (and the most popular regions/islands) in the excluded keywords fields.

Find your dream destination

After Brand24 collects mentions with holiday offers, it is time for you to do a little research. Firstly, I recommend to put SPAM filter to low, especially if DSC_2034you get too few mentions. The tool is designed to provide users with the most crucial content from the Internet. In most of the cases sites like Ebay or travel agent’s pages are assigned to SPAM category. However, in this case you might need these as well.

You can now play with other filters. For instance, you can set filter by number of visits to exclude results from webpages that are smaller than 500,000 monthly visitors. Bigger sites may have more credibility, however it is not the rule.

You can also modify search with phrase filter. Depending on what you want to include in or exclude from your trip, insert proper items in this fields. Want to go for 7-day holiday? Include it in phrase filter. Your inquiry in this field should count all the possible options that travel agents can express in their offers (“7day”, “7-day”, “7night”, “7-night”) all separated with {OR} operator.
