Most of us have suffered at the hands of the mega online travel sites. The good news is: The consumer is waking up. They are now realizing that they can click their way into a vacation from “hell.” However, one marketing tool continues to stand out in online marketing and that is “Travel Articles.” People love to ‘read’ about destinations throughout the world.

Write about what they will see, what they can do, where they can eat and how much money it will cost them.
Your article will repeat the destination location over and over, this is grounds for a great “keyword” foundation for Google and the other Search Engine Gods.
