    This seems to have most of the details for Trip Advisor
    Code:
    http://www.tripadvisor.com/pages/getlisted.html

    which country traffic?

    and if i tell my workers to post some reviews from facebook integrated accounts ....i guess the place with the most reviews ranks on top!
    #1 hotel have 48 review....so i was planning to add 5-10 reviews weekly and then wait to get approved

    Booking.com is not just a directory. They bring you customers directly by pre-booking a percentage of your rooms at set (and low!) prices all year long. On Tripadvisor you get reviews, but you don't have to work with them for direct booking!

    booking.com is the best solution for world wide traffic. I've just made a booking there for my new year eve holiday. It's very popular, check alexa rank.

    No clue if the system is similar. I think that well known directories and travel guides will literally visit the place first when they are in the area before listing you. Tons of visitors would pour in after an inclusion though.
    After a quick googling I have the following links:
    For Lonely Planet:
    Code:
    http://hotels.lonelyplanet.com/help/privacy
    and
    Code:
    http://www.lonelyplanet.com/contact/business_listing/new
    Other links:
    Code:
    http://www.hostelmanagement.com/forum/f9/getting-listed-travel-guides-367.html
    Code:
    http://www.hostelmanagement.com/blog/10-free-places-list-your-hostel-online-303.html
    Code:
    http://wiki.hostelmanagement.com/wiki/Travel_Guides
    I don't know which region you are based in but some clever Googling will help you a lot for regional directories.

    Booking.com is amazing. I've used them more than 20 times up to now and it works really good as long as your client is OK for paying a commission. You can check about their partners program here:
    Code:
    http://www.booking.com/general.en-gb.html?label=gog235jc;sid=3025b368792bc8e99611978029c471c8;dcid=1;tmpl=docs/hotels
    Hotel.com is also good and popular and partners with expedia as well. It is also comission based as well.

    I come from a land downunder
    I maintain about 5 or 6 tripadvisor accounts. They have wiki like pages as well.

    Most of those pages are heavily moderated by do gooders, and there's an option to be informed whenever someone amends the page. I just spam the shit out of it with one account and then go and clean it up with my fake dogooder account, accidently missing one or two links of course.

    Tripadvisor is very powerful in the travel niche. A bad review can really hurt a hotel or tour operator, because their review pages rank very well. There's a free hint for any rep management (or rep destroy then fix) people out there.

    My advise is do not go onto trip advisor, the are nothing but blackmailers who have total control over your bookings, and if you get a negative review it can not be removed. Anyone can write a review on trip adviser even if they have never stayed at a particuler place, give it a wide birth. They are being sued by maney hotels.
