Property Points

Whenever you search for a property on our website, there are usually many properties which match your criteria. We are often asked "In what order are the properties displayed?". To address this question as well as provide an incentive for property owners/managers to produce quality listings, we have developed a "Property Points" system.

Whenever you search on our site and are presented with more than one property, the listings with the most points appear at the top (they are displayed in point order).

Our "Property Points" system is a unique method of rewarding property owners/managers for quality listings. The more information which has been provided by the owner/manager, the better the experience for the rental client, the more referrals will be generated and therefore the higher you will appear in the search results.

How are Property Points calculated?

Every listing can benefit from up to 185 free property points. The table below summarises how the points are calculated. Watch out for our newsletter for more promotional opportunities to benefit from free points.

Can I Buy Property Points?

No. Property Points are completely free and are in place to encourage owners to produce quality property listings.


What are Back-Links?

Back Links are beneficial to both holidayhomerental and the property owners. If you have a proprietary web-site for your listings, HolidayHomeRental will gladly include it in your property profile. HolidayHomeRental asks in turn, that property owners also provide a link back to HolidayhomeRental via your website. Although this is not a condition of listing, we do offer 50 free Property Points to any website which has put a link from their website to ours.

Why Should I Provide a Back-Link?

We will give you 50 free Property Points for linking from your website to ours. Google and other search engines use the number of links, along with other parameters, to determine site ranking. By mutually back-linking to each other, property owners and HolidayHomeRental will receive more traffic and better exposure via the web.


How to provide a back-link

Simply ask the person who updates your website to add the following lines of HTML code to the home page of your website (it's fine to put it at the bottom):

(Start of HTML Code)

<table border="0" cellspacing="4" cellpadding="4">
<td><a href=""><img src="" alt="Holiday Home Rental" border="0" /></a></td>
<td><font size="2"><a href=""><font color="#F07E00" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong>Holiday Home Rental</strong></font></a><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><br/>
If you are looking for a <a href="">holiday home rental</a> somewhere in <a href="">England</a>, <a href="">Ireland</a>, <a href="">Scotland</a>, <a href="">Wales</a>, <a href="">The Channel Islands</a> or <a href="">The Isle of Man</a>, try <a href=""></a>, a partner provider of self-catering holiday homes throughout the <a href="">United Kingdom</a>. The site contains over 10,000 self-catering vacation properties which are available direct from the owners and managers. </font></font>&nbsp;</td>

(End of HTML Code)

The following is what the lines above will look like on your site:

How do you know if I have a back-link?

Once you have linked to our site, you then need to tell us the web address of the site you are linking from. You can enter this into the Property Description area of our website. To find this, goto the "Property Owners" page and click on Step 3 of your property with the link to us.

On step 3, scroll down to just below where you enter your website description and you'll see a box which says "If you have linked back to us from your website, please enter the web address here, including the http://" - simply enter it in there and click on save. Once our webbot confirms the back-link, you'll be given the relevant free points. Within two hours of this, you'll notice your promotion in the listings.
