Destroy your Competition on TripAdvisor

destroy competition using TripAdvisorImagine looking for a hotel, B&B or restaurant and landing on a page on TripAdvisor that has been flagged and now has a large red “Warning” notice stuck to it’s listing.. The damage is done, and the establishment owner is fucked, and business is gone!

This is a yet another VERY serious flaw on TripAdvisor, and we wanted to see just how easy it would be to get a property “Flagged” by posting Fake Reviews.

To be honest, as much as we hate the arrogant TripAdvisor, we hoped that this would not be an easy task.. Boy, were we wrong there!!

This was so easy, even we were amazed and shocked. This really goes to show the ignorance TripAdvisor has towards anyone listed on their site.

Before we continue, I would like to say without going to much into details that we had very good reason why we chose the 4 properties we used for this experiment.. and we have since been, and still are in touch with the owners. We are still working on one more hotel and 2 restaurants. These results will be posted in the coming week(s) depending on the results.


How to easily get your competition “Flagged” on TripAdvisor

Destroying your competition by getting them flagged is a lot easier than posting fake reviews, even though that’s exactly what you will be doing.

Now we are going to assume that your competition is at least in the same country as you, so there is absolutely no need to cloak your IP, actually it’s better if you don’t.

Here is what we did.

Once we had decided which establishment to use, ( in your case it will be your competition ) We composed 6 positive reviews, we used between 500 – 800 characters as to not make them too long. We focused mainly on the owners and establishment on a whole, and not so much the rooms or area. We know that TripAdvisor are very far from being the smartest, and although we did not over praise anything, there was a hint of too much praise towards the owners and establishment and not enough info about other things.

So Far so easy, we just put together 6 Fake Positive Reviews.. Now comes what we believe gets the establishment flagged.

The first day we submitted 3 Reviews.. the first 2 reviews were submitted within an our of each other, the 3rd review was submitted about 10 hours later ( ALL from the same laptop )
2 days later we submitted 1 more review..
Then we waited 5 days before submitting the 2 remaining reviews again about 10 hours between reviews.

Six days later the Property got flagged.

Yet again TripAdvisor shows it has ZERO ways to safeguard the listings that are “Forced” onto their site, but is completely open to devastating abuse against establishment owners.

  1. I don’t get it clearly, you are not tripadvisor are you?

  2. Kate Walker says:

    Ok so this has just happened to us. What the hell can we do about it? Not much if I believe everything I have read. My husband, the chef and owner, is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, he has even talked about ending it all.

  3. Whats the alternative if I want to find out more about hotels and restaurants in a place that I’m going to?
