    3 of my projects on 1 Agoda advert :)

    Right, this is not an advert for my hotels.

    Rather, I am very 'proud' to see 3 out of my 4 small hotel projects featured on a banner advert that Agoda runs on the TV forum.

    I think this banner is IP address dependant, so it only shows when viewing TV from north Phuket.

    Anyway, here is a screenshot of the banner advert:



    I should of course mention that the 1st photo (from left to right) is my latest little venture that I built for ME, the 2nd photo is the hotel that I built for mad-as-a-blue-bat ex #2, and the 3rd photo is the hotel that I built for selfish-conniving-absolute-cnut ex #3

    The only project missing is the 1st hotel - Phuket Airport Hotel, (which I built for me and up-a-palm-tree ex #2. But I see that featured on many other banner adverts.

    (BTW, ex #1 doesn't feature in all this, because she is happy in the $2 million house in the Chiltern Hills....)

    Now all I need to find is a banner advert featuring all 4 hotels

    I think Agoda and Booking use cookies to track your browsing. If you have previously viewed your hotels on their sites it displays them as ads on banners

    My own place in Cheltenhm appears tge same way

    That would explain why Madame Fisters Hotel/Motel appears on my Agoda.

    Correct, nobody else will see those hotels unless they have previously viewed them.

    It's a strange form of advertising which either reminds you about a hotel you've already booked or tries to tempt you to book a hotel you've already decided against.
