Optimization Strategy

  • Identify performance trends: Use the green and red trend arrows to quickly assess where you are underperforming and develop strategies to improve the metric and overall performance. You could focus on optimizing a metric (one metric in a funnel) that's consistently underperforming, or you could also choose one month, e.g. June and focus on it for different stages/metrics of the funnel one-by-one.

  • Periodic reviews: Review your metrics regularly to see if your performance is improving. Two weeks is a good cadence, if you carried out a test. Check weekly to ensure that you are trending.

Check your metrics to see how changes you make are impacting your revenue. 

  • Benchmark against similar listings: Compare your performance with similar listings and understand your market position. Use this comparison to set realistic internal goals and identify areas for improvement by evaluating how your listing compares to the competition. This approach ensures that your targets are achievable and aligned with market trends.

  • A/B Test your strategies: Experiment with changes to your listing and measure their impact using Rankbreeze's A/B Testing feature.

  • Run Spot Checks: Use the City-Wide Airbnb Search button in the Rankbreeze Rankings Breakdown section to evaluate your listing from a guest’s perspective.


Q: What exactly does the Property Search Metrics section track?

A: The Property Search Metrics section tracks a variety of key performance indicators, including first page impressions, click-through rates, listing views, overall conversion rates, wishlists, booking rates, average daily rates, occupancy, revenue, and review counts for your Airbnb listings.

Q: Does the data in the Property Search Metrics section include performance from other platforms?

A: No. All the data is for your listing's performance on Airbnb.

Q: How often are the Property Search Metrics updated?

A: Metrics are updated on a daily basis (when you are integrated with Airbnb), providing you with a regular overview of your listing’s performance.

Q: Why is it important to connect Rankbreeze with Airbnb for this section?

A: Connecting Rankbreeze with Airbnb allows for automatic data syncing, ensuring that all metrics displayed are updated daily and accurate. This connection is essential for leveraging the full capabilities of the Property Search Metrics tool.

Q: What should I do if my metrics are showing a decline?

A: If you notice a decline in your metrics, consider reviewing and optimising your listing details, photos, pricing, availability, flexibility in the availability, etc. Also, utilise Rankbreeze’s A/B testing to experiment with different changes and measure their impact.  

Q: How can I use the data from the Property Search Metrics to maximize my revenue?

A: Use the data to identify trends, strengths, and areas for improvement. Focus on enhancing areas where metrics indicate underperformance, such as decreasing conversion rates or lower guest satisfaction. Regularly updating and refining your listing to improve these metrics can lead to better visibility and more bookings.

Q: Are there any tips for interpreting the green and red arrows next to the metrics?

A: Green arrows indicate a better performance compared to similar listings, while red arrows suggest a worse performance. These arrows can guide you in understanding which aspects of your listing are performing well and which may require adjustments.

Q: The similar listing data has the same value as my listing data. Why?

A: The data on the Property Search Metrics board comes directly from Airbnb. If what you see there matches the data on your Airbnb performance page, you should contact Airbnb for any questions or concerns. If there are discrepancies between the data on Rankbreeze and Airbnb, please take a screenshot and email it to so we can look into it.

Please watch our video on how to verify the data     

Q: I've integrated with Airbnb, but I still see "Integrate with Airbnb" on the dashboard    

A: When you see an image saying “Integrate with Airbnb” in the metric tiles of the Property Search Metrics section, it means the property isn't under any of the Airbnb profiles you connected on the Rankbreeze Integrations page. Try connecting the Airbnb account, which has hosting access to this listing. This could also be because you don't have the rights to manage/host/co-host the listing, or because the listing isn't active on Airbnb.    

Q: Where is the data from?    

A: We collect the data from your Airbnb Performance page and simplify it so you can easily compare your listings performance to the similar listings one.

Q: What's the difference between CTR and Listing Views?        

A: CTR (Click-Through Rate) and Listing Views are both important metrics in your listing performance on Airbnb. They measure different aspects of user engagement. CTR is a ratio showing how often people who see your ad or listing end up clicking it. It is calculated by dividing the number of clicks by the number of impressions and is usually expressed as a percentage. Listing views refer to the number of times a specific listing has been viewed by potential guests. Every time a user clicks on a listing to see more details, it counts as a view.

Q: Does the Airbnb Occupancy include blocked dates?    

A: Airbnb does not count blocked dates as available. 

 Airbnb Occupancy = total Airbnb booked days/(total days - total blocked days) * 100%. 

For example looking at March, if you have 10 booked days and 6 blocked nights, the occupancy would be 10/(31-6) * 100% = 40% 

Q: What are similar listings? What factors affect similar listings?

A: Similar listings are listings that Airbnb groups your property with. The factors that determine which listings are considered to be similar include location, size, features, amenities, ratings, reviews, and other listings guests browse while considering yours. Check out Airbnb article on Similar Listings for more

Q: A guest booked my property in May and stayed till the end of June. Why is my Average revenue for June $0?     

A: The revenue from a booking is recorded in the month when the guest starts their stay. So, if a host earns $200 from a booking with the guest arriving on December 28 and leaving on January 3, that $200 is added to December's revenue.    

Q: Rankbreeze says I'm on page 10, but I have first-page impressions. How is that possible?    

A: Rankbreeze shows how you rank from the city level and includes basic filters (location, check-in & check-out, guest count). If your property appears on the first page after a guest refines their search by adding extra filters, adjusting the map, or setting a price range, it counts as a first-page impression.    

Q: How to compute the Total Revenue for the Month?     

A: This is the total amount of money paid to hosts for all bookings with check-in dates within a specific month.

Q: I have multiple Airbnb profiles. Can I connect all of them?    

A: You can add multiple Airbnb profiles by clicking "Connect new account" on Rankbreeze's Airbnb Integration page.
