Why Your Hotel Website Needs to be ‘Liked’…

July 2nd, 2010

Since the release of Facebook’s ‘Open Graph’, Facebook’s sticky little tentacles have been latching on to websites across the entire web.

Facebook have recently confirmed that if you include the ‘Like’ button on your site, your site (and also a link back to your site) will be findable in Facebook search without the need to add a separate Facebook page.

The main links you’ll find for Hotels in Facebook Search at the moment are links to TripAdvisor or Yelp (which have both greeted this new function with open arms).
