How hard is it to raise your property score?

Hello Everyone, 

I am Shay. I am the owner of *******.com

Lets talk RATINGS!    Now, I don't know about y'all, but I have found it near impossible to rise above a certain score. My plateau is 8.6.  What is yours?

No matter how many 10's and 9's I get in a row. It says my 90 day score is 9.6, but my two year score is 8.6 and for some reason does not rise above.  I have seen my location score fluctuate between 7.9 and 8.0 but the other catagories and the overall score does not rise. 

Here are my monthly review numbers Begin September 2018:

8.8, 8.3, 7.9, 8.2, 9.4, 10, 8.4, 9.9, 9.0, 10.,9.7, 8.5,9.6 End September 2019

Tell me what weird fuzzy math calculation formula breaks this down to 8.6 and HOLDING!

I would really like to understand.



I used a computer score average and it comes out to 9.05 So, what is up?

We know the reviews stay on your listing for 2 years before they drop off .... I don't know if they still count the old (over 2 years) scores in your scoring .....


The reviews system is changing sometime soon though ..... we've had warnings about it .... whether it'll improve things or not remains to be seen .....


640 reviews, score 9,4. Few years ago my score was 8,2.  Score average is calculated from ALL reviews/scores in the span of 2 years. More reviews you have more solid is your overall score.  Less reviews you have your overall score drops/rise more frequently.

I believe most people are as interested in reading the previous guests' written reviews, than only looking at the review score number.


Some guests feel no overnight lodging rates a 10, no mater how excellent their stay was.  But guests will write glowing reviews, with many positive details, of what they enjoyed while staying with us.


I have a Facebook page to help promote my rental guest space.  I often post those positive comments on it, after a guest submits it through Booking,com.  I also post upcoming festivals and special events in our area to attract future guests here.
