Property Search Rankings Section

The Property Search Rankings section provides a visual representation of where your property ranks in a specific area/location on Airbnb (i.e. Kelowna on the image example) based on your open calendar dates. 

We show the listing's average rank for various numbers of guests and length of stays. There are three sections: 

  • "All Homes" Category is based on searches for custom check-in and check-out dates, 

  • "Weekly Stays" is based on flexible searches for "Any week" stays within the next 12 months, 

  • "Monthly Stays" is based on flexible searches for "Any Month" stays within the next 12 months. 

Line charts are used to make your rankings easy to perceive visually.

Why It Matters

Understanding your property's ranking for different guest counts within your open calendar, weekly and monthly stays, helps you gauge your competitive edge and visibility in Airbnb searches. This insight allows you to tailor your listing content and pricing strategies to boost your ranking and attract more bookings. Thus, the ranking is at the very beginning of the search funnel, and it indicates how high a property appears in search results when potential guests search for accommodations, affecting the impressions number. The higher rankings typically lead to greater visibility, which can increase the likelihood of bookings.

Step-by-Step Walkthrough

Step 2: Analyze Ranking trends

Begin by reviewing the line charts in your open calendar (when your property is available for check-in and check-out, the ‘All Homes’ tab) to understand the overall trend of your rankings for different guest counts. Focus particularly on how rankings fluctuate and trend over time. If they are trending to the top right corner of the chart, it means they are showing up better in the search results.
