    ian.com which is the affiliate channel for hotels.com provides an extensive datafeed that includes towns and zip codes

    Most of them will allow you to create a link to display all of the hotels in a particular town/city. (At least the three that I use have this feature.)

    Here is a sample: http://www.albanynewyork.net/
    Note: this is not an affiliate link - but there are affiliate links on that page, so please do not click.

    hi Bill,

    I am thinking about trying my luck in the travel industry. I have few geo domains which I used to park but one of my friends suggested to checkout travel affiliate websites and I remembered that long time back I had opened ian.com account and to my surprize it is still active.

    I checked your website about albany, NY and it seems that it is straight forward feeds from ian.com

    I was wondering how do you get traffic for this one. Do you do lots of ppc ?

    I would greatly appreciate your input.
    I would have pm'ed you but I am not allowed yet.

    thanks in advance...

    I don't do any PPC. That particular domain was used as a sample - it produces very few reservations. I keep it because it does a couple per month and that more than pays me to keep it. I believe it gets a bit of traffic because of the key words and some folks find it by type-in - likely because the dot-com and dot-org are "parked" domains.

    Actually I have quite a few domains like that one. Individually there is not much "real" value to any of them, but collectively they produce some nice "extra" income. I actually have a few "small town" dot-com geo domains that get a good bit of type-in traffic.

    However, if you want to do a good job that can generate many bookings you really need to develop those domains. Build a real site and focus on a few local hotels and the top three or four "things to do/places to see" in the area. Be creative and be original - and if you build it right you can begin seeing some search engine results based on the geo domain and "matching" content. Good luck.
