We set ourselves on a mission to radically improve user engagement on 10Best.com.” - Josh Steinitz, CEO of parent company NileGuide.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2011
Travel planning site 10Best.com, acquired less than a year ago by NileGuide.com, has completely re-launched its website to provide travelers with an improved, industry-leading, inspirational experience. Chief among the site’s new features is an abundance of rich travel photo slide shows, populated by thousands of beautiful new images. With this re-launch, 10Best.com added more than 100,000 new photos and increased photo sizes by 70%. The result: A compelling browsing experience that satisfies the yearning in every traveler to dream before and during trip planning.
In addition to the deep focus on travel photos, the new site features a major dose of original destination and thematic content, including fresh articles in categories such as “Affordable Family Destinations,” “Let it Pour” (featuring breweries, wineries and distilleries), “Will Travel for Food” (showcasing ideas for culinary adventures) and many more. For the first time, 10Best is now being infused with rich, original content on a regular basis from the global network of local editors built by NileGuide.
Key site features were also upgraded to further cement 10Best.com as a best-of-breed travel planning resource. These include the inclusion of up-to-date menus for every restaurant listing and an improved sorting and filtering mechanism that enables users to drill-down further into 10Best’s editorial “Best of” lists via options ranging from “cheap eats” to “family-friendly.”
“We set ourselves on a mission to radically improve user engagement on 10Best.com,” offers Josh Steinitz, CEO of parent company NileGuide. “We employed rigorous user testing and relied on our network of top-tier editors from around the world to produce what is truly a new and category-leading site experience. I’m thrilled with the result and look forward to continuing to leverage the strengths we have across our individual portfolio websites to build high-engagement, category-leading digital products for travelers.”
10best.com makes trip planning easy with engaging travel news and practical “Top 10” lists of great restaurants, fun things to do, places to stay and important sites to visit around the world. These lists are fastidiously compiled and curated by 10Best’s own team of expert travel editors from around the world.
