Full-Page Expanded Listings:
Just $225 for 12 Months
Expanded Listings are the most popular innkeeper upgrade on the Purple Roofs website. We've created almost two thousand of these for innkeepers around the world, and these fully-featured, self-contained websites have brought in almost five million visitors to the Purple Roofs site.
We recently launched our latest version of the Purple Roofs site, and with it, a great new design for the full page Purple Roofs Expanded Listings.
With plenty of text and photos to present your property to potential visitors and submission to a great selection of gay-themed directories across the 'net, our Expanded Listings are a great, affordable way to reach the gay travel market.
Our Expanded Listings are jam-packed with features and benefits:
Links to your Facebook, Twitter, and Trip Advisor Pages
Five property pics*
Five hundred words
Reservation request form
Pic for your Basic Listing
Higher Basic Listing rank
Submission to other gay directories
Special offer/monthly newswire access
Five year home trade membership
Publication in our gay travel blog
The other great thing about the Expanded Listing is the traffic - on average, 85% of the folks who will find your Expanded Listing will do so from outside the Purple Roofs site. What this means is that folks will find you who might never have found you through your area page on the Purple Roofs site alone. We have a high renewal rate for these listings, so we must be doing something right!
*Exterior of lodging property (main picture), 3 interior room pictures, picture of the property grounds. Picture content subject to approval by Purple Roofs staff - no adult photos or non-property pics
All at a Great Price!
At Purple Roofs, we've always planned for the long-term. We've kept our rates low, and are constantly working to improve and upgrade the website. The more innkeepers we list, the better it is for all of us.
What does this mean to you? You'll get all of this for just a few dollars a month - $225 set-up, which covers the time it takes us to create the listing and do the work submitting it to other directories. Then we cover the hosting for free for 12 months.
Hosting for each additional year after the initial period is currently $109 ($399 for Expanded+Premium Listing).
Want Even More Traffic? Upgrade to the Top-of-Your-Area-Page Featured Listing Too!
For even more of a traffic boost, consider our Featured Listing add-on - in addition to the full page Expanded Listing, you'll get three other great benefits - a full copy of your basic listing in one of the two exclusive spots at the top of your area page (ie: The Castro, Southern Arizona, Key West - wherever your property is), and a spot in our Featured Listing banners on the Purple Roofs home page - with more than 20,000 unique visitors a month.
We also recently upgraded these listings - now you'll come up at the top of your region when someone performs a search on the site, too!* And your property now appears on the home page for 15 minutes at a time on a rotating basis with our other Featured Listings!

* Site searches are sorted by country, then state (if any), then by Featured Listings... with a Featured Listing, your listing will appear at the top of your state (or if no state, top of your country) when a search is performed on the site. Depending on the user search citeria, the listing may not appear at the very top of the search results, if other listings in other countries or states higher alphabetically than yours come up in the search.
