So Where do YOU Think Fodors is Advertising?

Jump to last reply

Last January I posted an observation that the Forums seemed to be getting a lot of IITTMBB itineraries. Seems it hasn't slowed down but escalated.

I'm amazed at how many "10 day honeymoon in Italy in November we like beaches where should we go" and "I want to visit Italy, Turkey, Spain, Croatia, Amsterdam, France and Brussels and Berlin, I have 3 weeks" questions posted here these days.

I guess Fodors is advertising in bridal magazines to explain all the first time to Europe honeymoon questions? Have they linked in to 'European Tour' key words on Google/Bing to explain all the overly ambitious and unresearched posts?

It's nice that lots of new people are discovering the Forums and asking questions, but I just can't stop wondering where this is all coming from. It's to the point now that I reply less often and only read posts that have truly unique or specific questions.

I think there have been a few trip reports posted as thanks for the advice received here, but not many. Do newer Fodorites realize trip reports are a big part of the useful information on the boards?

Just my random thoughts. Fodorites opinions?
