Hello! I started hosting in February 2018. I had a few short-term bookings at the beginning and have received 3 great 5-star reviews. My last two bookings have been longer (March-May, May-August 2018). I haven’t gotten a booking inquiry since March and I only get 0-1 views a day for my listing and am starting to worry that my listing is at the bottom of the search list for some reason. When I first started listing in February I was getting 10-20 views a day, which I understand is because AirBnB promotes new listings. I am in a great area in Los Angeles near a lot of studios, so I would have expected a lot more views and inquiries. I update my listing daily as I’ve heard that can give me a boost in the search rankings, and I’ve lowered my price to well below the other listings in the area. Should I expect more views as it gets closer to August when my calendar is open (do people not usually book until the last minute)? Should I be worried that there’s something wrong with my listing to make it undesirable or drop low in the rankings? I’ve met all of AirBnB’s standards except the % of accepted reservations is only 83% (I’m particular about the people I accept as I live in the house also). Could AirBnB be dropping me because I don’t accept everyone and I don’t have instant book on? Thanks!
Here’s my listing:
Edit: I just searched my area and I’m last in the search list out of 100+ listings.
