- This is the only solution developed for the hospitality industry by a team with deep roots in the industry

Why is VR such a powerful SEO tool?

Google is rewarding VR content in its search engine ranking, for 2 reasons:

Google says VR creates greater engagement. “When a viewer feels like they are there, they have a greater sense of the situation. Messages become more impactful.” 

A greater user experience is driving demand. According to Google data, “global search interest for virtual reality on Google has grown by nearly 4X in the last year.” 

So rewarding VR content with higher search rankings is the natural path for Google because those are the best results for an ever-growing number of people.

Of this trend, Michal Hubschmann, CEO of VDroom, says that, “VR helps people dream about your property. And the more they dream, the more they book direct. That’s why we invite hotels to try our basic service for themselves. It’s free. And that way they’ll be able to experience the results for themselves.”
