There's a thriving market in people using places such as Freelancer and Fiverr to hire people to write fake reviews on Trip Advisor.

It's really as blatant as that! They don't even try to make any secret of the fact that they hire writers who've never even been to the place to write glowing reviews about it. Equally, they hire people to write rotten reviews about their competitors.

Sadly, none of it can be trusted any more.

You wouldn't trust it if you could see the review was from a friend of yours?

I think some of it can be trusted, but you have to have your wits about you...

[quote="Drachsi"]I have been a contributor for a number of years, and currently have 63 reviews. I don't use this for any serious marketing, but you can, including a link to your website.

The point is, it is just a strangers opinion, some are more believable than others, consider the writing style, does seem like a normal everyday person?

Me too I have a lot of experience with TA but I am not in the hotel business.
Like booking .com TA is a very useful tool and special the forum I like it very much. I can understand it got a huge impact if a negative report is written about a small hotel. So a reporter has to be careful not to ruin a business. However it is a kind of balancing: if a hotel is terrible bad yes than one has o report and publish.
