customizing your Search Box to Only Search for Specific Amenities
In my last post I talked about niche markets and how they were the quickest way to success for a smaller site in a sector where big sites use the entire shelf space in the most common keywords SERPs.
Having a specialized site will pave the road to an easier success, and customizing your search box to only search among hotels with certain amenities or characteristics is one of the first steps you can take to create your niche travel affiliate site.
Giving how easy it is to create a white label site with our WordPress Integration Guide or our Example Travel static HTML site white label implementation guide and the flexibility our search widgets, creating your niche site may be easier than you thought.
Select your Search box
When you log on to our affiliate centre go to the Site tab and choose the Search Forms option there you will find a variety of search boxes that you can use on your site, which come in a standard design with almost no customization.
With a small tweak each form can be coded to find hotels accepting pets, ones that have swimming pool or other specific amenities and to do that you will just need to add the following tag right after the opening
You need to change the value in that tag to whichever amenity you want to customize the search form for according to the amenities codes you can find below:
You will need to change the value of the “amenities” field to the number of each amenity with the following codes:
- Swimming Pool = 1
- Fitness Center = 2
- Restaurant = 3
- Children’s Activities = 4
- Breakfast Included = 5
- Meeting Facilities = 6
- Pets Allowed = 7
- Wheelchair Accessible = 8
- Kitchen/Kitchenette = 9
