    Are you sure? those hotels hire seo for marketing purpose because I am sure not all are doing seo because there are many big name in hotel who don't need seo for their hotels. Hope you understand what I mean and I know how to search the way you do in google but this doesn't bring out the result. Any common name you knew?

    I am a Dir Sales and Marketing for a very large 1000+ room hotel \ convention centre so i could help.

    Most hotels will have a sales and marketing department which will have a dedicated electronic sales section working with .com and in house sales. The markcom dept. will have graphic designers who can handle web design.
    Most large hotel will have a large IT department which could include network engineers and programmers. The hotels will either have a in house web developer or they will contract a local professional to work on web development.

    My advise is to prepare a portfolio of what you can do. Target the top 5 hotels in your area, analyze the web site they have and see how you can improve, contact them and ask them if they will grant you an opportunity to show them how you can improve there web presence. prepare a professional presentation, showing facts and figures, make comparisons how they are doing vs there competitors .Put on a suite or dress smart and show them what you can do to increase not only traffic but convert the traffic into bookings.

    A hotel care about 4 main points.
    Room nights
    Average Room rates
    Room revenue
    F&B revenue

    If you can convince them you can improve any of those they might listen to you. Forget about contacting any hotel which you cant drive to, you will waste your time.

    Great information this is what we say reply to other's query also I want to say whatever you information you shared with us is true but my friend who's holding position as seo executive told me when I first meet to him that they are group of 15 people who are generating sales as well as increasing ranking of hotel site not a single person doing all these things they are bunch of them and I am actually searching for those hotels which are hiring seo's for web promotion but I appreciate you got my point.

    Thanks! As someone in the know, can you tell us how can we calculate how we'd add to your profits?

    And what's F&B revenue? Food and Beverage?

    Sorry for the delayed response as i was not monitoring the responses.

    Hotels generate weekly, monthly and annual reports, so they have pretty good records of how they are doing versus how they have done as the normally will compare current figures versus historical as well as projected to know where they are standing. There reports will include performance vs last year and vs budget.

    You can easily calculate your SEO performance by looking at web stats. Every action normally have a reaction for instance if you make adjustments to SEO there should be a reaction reflected in your web stats in terms of spider activity, in terms of traffic and in terms of increases in the specific pages that were worked on.

    The hotel will be more interested in how your actions will result in more conversions, meaning if you say to them i will increase traffic to your website by 1,000,000 this month - i might sound nice but it will mean absolutely nothing to the them, they want to rather hear you saying that you will increase website bookings by lets say 20% from month to date or year to date or year on year average. or projected budgets.

    Whilst SEO is important the hotels could not care less about meta tags and H1 tags and code optimization, they want results, how you achieve it is up to you

    Yes F&B stands for Food & Beverage
