ADD YOUR B&B INN or ACTIVITY TO
INSTANT HAWAII WEB SERVICE
Our mission is to increase success and prosperity for our subscribers by effectively promoting Hawaii Bed and Breakfast Inns and Vacation Accommodations
WHY ADVERTISE WITH
INSTANT HAWAII WEB SERVICE?
Our files are small and focus only on Internet publicity for B&B Inns & Activities in Hawaii. In addition to search engine listings we subscribe to many Nat. & Int. B&B files. These inclusions may cost from $35 to $300 per year for each one. We also spend a great deal of time maintaining a high placement on the major search engines and directories.
Our web files have been online
since 1994, when we realized that the internet was going to be the best
way to advertise small Bed & Breakfast Inns. In addition to key words,
meta tags and hot links, one of the main factors used by the search engines
for higher placement is the longevity of the file. Having your advertising
on a site that has an eight-year history of B&B publicity is very
advantageous. For example, try doing a search on your favorite search
engine for "hawaii bed and breakfast". Although there are no guarantees
because the placements can change daily, http://www.hawaii-inns.com/
and http://www.hawaii-bnb.com/ are usually right
up there on the first page!
We want each Inn to carry
its own ambiance into our web site. Be yourself! We do not want dittos,
peas in a pod or a cookie cutter file. You are free to be creative. Your
Inn will be presented in our files geographically, which makes it much
easier for guests to find your location.
If there are bookings that
you cannot accommodate, these can be referred back to IHWS for networking
to all of our other subscribers. This can be an excellent source of reservations
and is especially important during peak seasons like Ironman and the winter
months when we have many visitors coming to the Hawaii. We also network
to back each other up in case of the dreaded double booking!
WE ARE LOCAL:
Have a question? Need some
advice on the presentation of your special property? We are right here
on the Big Island available to work with you. As fellow Bed and Breakfast
owners, we can share in the questions and concerns you have about advertising
and operating your Inn. You're welcome to drop by our Inn, have a good
cup of Kona coffee or tea, and talk story anytime with Ken & Sue Smith,
HOW DO WE ADD OUR FILES TO
All of our Inns are published
as inspected, giving visitors assurance of quality. We accept inspections
by AAA, HIBBA or any on site inspection or association. IHWS is also available
to make an inspections if needed, and will make suggestions and take photographs
if requested at the same time.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF:
First there is the construction
of your personal web page. You may have your page already up on the web
or have one in progress. If you do have pages up on the web then we will
copy the pages and convert them over into our files. Your current file
will remain untouched and will still be accessible where you have it now.
Except for our index pages we do not allow hot links outside of our html
files to other web addresses. In this way we help surfing travelers stay
within our system as long as possible in looking for a B&B Inn. Also
each page links back to our Home Page, Map and Index so folks can easily
surf the system. We may make some suggestions about the loading time of
your site, which should only take about 20 seconds, and what meta tags
and key words will result in better access on the web by the locator engines
KEY WORDS & META TAGS:
The meta tags and the first
200 characters (not words) are very important in determining your web
page placement on the web engines and directories. Your key words should
be woven into these characters as many times as possible but no more than
8 times. Look at the other sites or play with key words on the web to
see how they come up with other B&B's. We will help, if needed. The
key words "Hawaii Bed and Breakfast Inns" work well, but there are many
more excellent combinations. In your first 200 characters an important
key word should be listed at least 3 times but no more than 8 or many
robots may consider it "spamming" and knock you way down on their listings
or even remove your web pages from their files.
- We would love to support your very special B&B Inn or Activity in our files. Our subscription rate is $100. per year even, no tax.
It is always encouraging when something that takes a lot of work, and works very well, finds appreciation.
