America Embraces the Holiday Ferret

The Holiday Ferret is a holiday and vacation rental by owner website, and recently saw an increase in the number of American properties listed onsite.

 
PRLog - Jul. 11, 2011 - Prior to the last month the Holiday Ferret only had two U.S properties listed on site. Like British bands, British based holiday rental websites find it hard to crack America. The competition is fierce and many Americans like to stay in their homeland for a vacation.  Subsequently, the Holiday Ferret like other holiday rental websites, have struggled slightly to attract the American vacation owners.

This month however, has seen the Holiday Ferret's American properties increase to four. This does not seem like a significant figure, but the Holiday Ferret can now boast properties in Maine, Florida, Hawaii, and New York. According to James Curl director of the Holiday Ferret, it's a significant development for the company.

"Though it doesn't seem like a huge amount of people, it does show we are moving forward. Given the level of competition and the fact we have only been up and running since April, I feel myself and my team have done an excellent job."

Since its launch the Holiday Ferret which advertises holiday and vacation rentals by owner has seen over 90 accounts created and visitor numbers rise to around 1400 per month.

"The SEO is slowly coming together. We are seeing ourselves on page one of Google for various searches all the time. We think this is why we have caught the eye of vacation rental owners."

James Curl went on to say that the Holiday Ferret's news pages are extremely popular, with many U.S based stories being featured on the site. They are also read by a large cross section of the public and travel industry professionals and entrepreneurs.  Recently, the site was accepted on Bing news, though the news stories will not start appearing on the search engine's news search until the end of the year.

The Holiday rentals market is dominated by HomwAway.com, though other holiday and vacation rental site are beginning to appear prominently in search results.  This is believed to be due to the farmer update, which promotes original content over copied.  This is yet to be officially comfirmed.

"We knew it would not be easy," continued James Curl.  "We are moving forward though and that is vitally important for us and our clients."
