YaDig was written up this week in the MENA region's largest hospitality related magazine and compared to the global giant in tourism reviews, TripAdvisor. Read the article here to learn more about the recent growth of YaDig and our future plans.
Now we certainly don't see ourselves as a rival to TripAdvisor but we do think we compliment the site as an integral part of any Hotel or Restaurant's marketing plan. TripAdvisor is for international people, tourists, and for finding places to visit when you're out of town, but do you want to trust traveler opinions in your own city? YaDig is the only real active reviewing community of people who actually live in your place. People who understand what to expect when dining or staying out in Dubai or Beirut. After all who's advice would you trust more, someone from your city or someone from 10,000 miles away who lives in different economic climate and is accustomed to a different level of standards? That's what we thought too. We're striving every day to create the largest database of peer to peer reviews in the region, and reviews that you can trust with clear profile data, and a really badass support team behind them. When you see a review on YaDig we want you to check the person's profile and make sure that they're worth the words they're saying. We're launching a new profile soon that will be chocked full of info like when the person signed up, how many reviews they've written, how many re-edits etc. All of this will let you the reader know whether or not this person knows what their talking about.
If you're not, or don't know a business owner but you do go out around the region and stay at hotels, visit restaurants, get your car fixed at an auto garage etc, please do continue to write amazing reviews on www.yadig.com! We've got a few competitions going on right now, most notably the NKD Pizza competition that will end next week. Write the most reviews by next week and when some exclusive NKD pizza prizes.
