Content Quality Guidelines
All content posted on Synotrip must be valuable to readers. If Synotrip moderators feel it isn't valuable, it will be unpublished.
Click here to see if you currently have any unpublished content.
Any content that doesn't meet the guidelines below will certainly be unpublished.
Content must be posted as the correct content type:
Do not post content on Synotrip that is also on other websites. One exception to this rule is that we do allow Tours that are also posted on other websites. All other content, such as Articles, Listings and Photos, must be unique.
Do not post your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, anywhere but the proper fields on your profile. (This includes images that you upload to the site.) Note that only tour guides with a premium membership can publicly list their contact information.
Editor's Picks and "Great Posts"
We love to reward exemplary content - the kind of content that makes readers think "wow, that's interesting" or "wow, I've never seen something like that before" or even "that's really useful."
Content that is chosen as a "Great Post" or "Editor's Pick" is seen by a lot more travelers. Plus, you get 5 bonus points for each Great Post and 20 points for each Editor's Pick.
Editor's Picks are shown much more prominently on the site:
When choosing Editor's Picks, we ask ourselves these questions:
We don't need to answer "yes" to all of the above questions, but think of them as rules of thumb.
We tend to choose about 4-8 Editor's Picks per week, but there's no limit to how many Great Posts we choose.
