In the Search visibility page you can have a general overview of the visibility of your listing in Airbnb search result pages. You can see in which days your property is visible and in which days is not.
When you search on Airbnb, the platform only displays 18 pages with 18 listings on each page (324 listings). So in large cities with a high Airbnb density, many listings stay out of the first 18 pages. For example, if you search homes in New York or Barcelona, you will only get 18 suggestions on the first page. Ideally, you will be among those 18 recommendations or at least, in the next 17 pages. But this is not always the case.
If your property is not visible it means that when people search in your city with no filters, your listing does not appear within these firsts 18 pages.
Should I worry if my property does not appear?
If your listing does not appear in our results is not a good sign. However, this does not mean that your property does not appear at all, because most of the times people look for properties in more precise neighborhoods and using some filters (number of guests, amenities, superhost status, etc.). This means that even though your property does not appear when searching in your city with no filters, it will probably appear when searching it in a different location with some filters.
(In the future, we will probably allow you to define the neighborhood in which you want your property to be found; this will reduce the number of listings in your area.)
Why does my property not appear?
There are many reasons why a property does not appear on the Airbnb first search pages: the time to answer guests has been too long, too many cancellations, the pictures and the description are not appealing enough, the price is not competitive, the minimum stay requirement is high and leaves many free days, the number of people that have wish-listed your property is low, the number of bookings and the quality of the reviews is also low, etc.
