Quality Index Help

1. What is the Quality Index

The index has been established to measure the quality of every property listing in Rentalo. Its goal is to increase the quality of Rentalo’s inventory and enhance its value for travelers. Quality index is determined by the number of points that you receive when you edit your property listing.

2. How can you benefit from the Quality Index

Quality index not only improves the experience of travelers who will have complete information about every property in Rentalo, but also helps you to increase your listing’s attractiveness and boost your bookings. The Quality Index will help you to:

  • Rank higher in Rentalo’s search results and in search engines
  • Appeal better to travelers by having a complete property information
  • Increase the quality and value of your listing -> boost your bookings

3. How does it work

.Quality index is defined by points you receive for updating and completing each and every element of your property listing.

The main elements we measure are:

- Length of your property description

We also distribute points among these additional elements:
