People Like Us Review |

About a month ago I came across a site called ShareTraveller while looking for information about swaps. There was a story about how some home swap networks expose their members' details to the public.

How do I boost my listing on People Like Us?

You might notice that on each listing we keep the number of views. That's the number of times that someone has opened your listing page. But you might also notice that some have thousands of views.

Our Facebook page is here: That will usually bring quite a few views but that isn't everything. It's one thing for us to advertise your listing but another thing entirely if you do. Most of the really popular listings have been advertised separately on the member's...
