Who Searches for Restaurants on TripAdvisor? While TripAdvisor is known around the world as a brand built for travelers, new research suggests that locals love us too — particularly when it comes to finding a place to eat.
You already know that TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, but we’re also one of the world’s largest restaurant sites,* which means you’ll find more than just travelers discovering your restaurant. When it comes to traffic to your TripAdvisor listing, it’s a mix of both travelers and locals.
Local vs. Traveler Searches on TripAdvisor
Our analysis showed the percentage of locals searching for restaurants on TripAdvisor to be in some cases up to almost 60%. Here’s the breakdown by market:
Percentage of Local Searches by Country, May to December 2018
Seasonality impacted whether or not locals were searching for restaurants. When we compared searches from Summer (May to August) against searches from Fall (September to December), we found the percentage of locals searching for restaurants increased in the Fall. France, Italy, and Spain saw the largest increases in local restaurant searches, hovering around 20%, while the US and UK each saw about a 6% increase.
How Local Search Increased by Market
The Top Choice for Travelers and Locals Alike
It’s no surprise that up to 96% of our respondents in a recent survey told us they use TripAdvisor while looking to a place to eat while traveling. We also learned, though, that the majority of respondents across the U.S. and Europe also prefer to use TripAdvisor compared to other options while at home. For both travelers and locals, TripAdvisor remains the top choice to discover great places to eat.
Waarom elke fase van de dineerervaring sociaal is Op social media vind je meer dan genoeg prachtige maaltijden en restaurantgevels. We gaan er dieper op in waarom elke fase van de dineerervaring sociaal is, zowel online als offline.
Nieuwe restaurants ontdekken
Wanneer potentiële dineergasten proberen te beslissen waar ze gaan eten, gebruiken ze veel hulpmiddelen (vaak binnen dezelfde zoekopdracht), zoals vrienden, beoordelingswebsites zoals TripAdvisor en dineermedia. Wat hebben deze allemaal met elkaar gemeen?
Dineergasten hebben beperkt de tijd en een beperkt budget om aan een bepaalde ervaring te besteden, dus willen ze er het meeste uit halen. En ze gebruiken vaak meerdere informatiebronnen om onderzoek te doen naar hun keuze en deze te verifiëren. Steeds meer consumenten dan ooit vertrouwen op online beoordelingswebsites en social media voor aanbevelingen van eetgelegenheden in de buurt of tijdens het reizen.
Het overgrote deel van de ondervraagde consumenten gaf aan dat hun dineerbeslissingen zijn gebaseerd op online beoordelingen. In sommige markten gaf tot 72% ook aan dat foto's van restaurants hun keuze hadden beïnvloed. Dit geldt zowel voor lokale inwoners als voor reizigers; gemiddeld gebruikt 78% van onze respondenten uit de VS, het VK, Frankrijk, Spanje, en Italië TripAdvisor om onderzoek te doen naar lokale restaurants. Maar liefst 85% van de respondenten gebruikt TripAdvisor tijdens hun reis.
Dineren zorgt voor contact leggen
Een van de belangrijkste redenen waarom mensen uit eten gaan, is om in contact te komen met andere mensen. Denk na over uw gasten en wat ze belangrijk vinden. Als u dit niet weet, kunt u hun gedrag een tijdje observeren of het gewoon vragen!
Heeft uw typische dineergast rust en een privésfeer nodig of is hij op zoek naar een bruisende plek om met anderen te praten? Wanneer u uw ervaring vormgeeft, kunt u nadenken over de manieren waarop de ruimte uw dineergasten privacy kan geven of ze met elkaar in contact kan brengen. Uw omgeving, sfeer, technologie en omgevingsgeluid bepalen allemaal of dineergasten een fijne ervaring met hun tafelgasten kunnen hebben."Ik wil sommige plekken bezoeken, omdat ik een bepaald gerecht op Instagram wil zetten."...

Influences on Diner Decision-Making More consumers than ever use and trust online review sites and social media for recommendations on where to eat – both at home and while traveling. Our latest survey examines the impact of today's most popular digital marketing channels and what factors influence diner decision making.
Today’s restaurant operators have a lot on their plates. Between dinner rush, managing employees, and calculating inventory, it's hard for owners to find time to market their business. And on top of that, the world of digital marketing is more complex than ever, making it increasingly difficult to pick where and how to invest scarce resources when attempting to efficiently reach the right customer.
In fact, in the 2017 TripAdvisor Restaurant Marketing Study, the majority of global respondents reported spending less than 10% of their time promoting their business.
But what online channels influence a customer to choose where to dine?
More consumers than ever use and trust online review sites and social media for recommendations on where to eat – both at home and while traveling. Recent surveys also show that restaurant operators overwhelmingly believe that managing their online reputation has become an essential part of running their business.
With this in mind, TripAdvisor’s latest survey examines the impact of today’s most popular digital marketing channels and what factors drive diners into a restaurant, inclusive of reviews, photos, and owner engagement with an increasingly mobile consumer.
The new CVENT survey, which analyzed the dining behaviors of more than 9,500 consumers across key markets in the US and Europe, revealed that TripAdvisor is overwhelmingly regarded as the most influential online dining resource compared to Google, Facebook and Yelp. See methodology below.
TripAdvisor: An Essential Dining Resource for Travelers and Locals
It’s no surprise that online reviews play a huge role in influencing consumer dining decisions. The vast majority of respondents reported basing a dining decision off of an online review, with up to 72% in some markets also noting they have been influenced by restaurant photos. Specifically, most respondents reported that TripAdvisor dining content has influenced them to try a new restaurant.

The survey also found that diners, both locals and travelers, use TripAdvisor as a restaurant discovery site with the majority of respondents stating they have opted to dine at a restaurant as a result of a TripAdvisor ranking, review, rating or award.

Time Invested in Restaurant Marketing
Time Spent: In the United States, nearly half of respondents spend less than 10% of their time on marketing activities. This is consistent with the majority of global respondents who also report spending 10% or less of their time on marketing activities (56%).
Employees and Consultants: Only 17% of United States survey respondents have hired a dedicated marketing employee and just 1% report using an outside marketing consultant. Globally, 9% of respondents have hired a dedicated marketing resource and 3% have hired a marketing consultant.
