BnB Bonus Points

BnB Bonus Points are the single greatest factor in determining how prominently you appear in the search results on Texas-bnb.com. There are many ways to earn additional points, so take a look at the available options!

What are they for?

It's simple: Inns with more BnB Bonus Points show up in our search engine ahead of inns with fewer BnB Bonus Points. The exception to this is that Preferred Listings ALWAYS show up ahead of Summary listings, regardless of how many points a Summary listing might have.

In addition to placement in the search results, your BnB Bonus Points affect the frequency with which you appear in the Featured BnB Gallery (Learn about this feature).

How many points do I need to place well in the search engine?

Because most searches focus on a specific community, what you want to know is, "How well do I stack up with other BnBs in my area?" You can determine how you compare with other inns by checking the Placement section of your monthly Stats.

How do I earn or purchase more points?

Additional points can be claimed/purchased from the Innkeeper Control Panel, accessible after you have created your Preferred or Summary Listing. There are lots of ways to get more BnB Bonus points. Choose whatever methods you wish, and watch as you begin to appear more prominently in search results.

When you join, you are automatically awarded the following points based on your membership level:
Preferred Listing 75
Summary Listing 50

In addition, you can earn points in these ways:
Have us design or redesign your web site. Go this route and experience greater visibility while enjoying the best web site anywhere! 50
Refer a BnB to join at the Preferred Level 30
Become a "Featured BnB," and your BnB's photo and link will be seen on the front page of the directory! (Details...) 20
