Eardex.com is now showing daily budgets for backpackers and tourists – for information on travel costs at a glance. In addition, users can now advertise for free on Eardex.com, which will be to the benefit of all Eardex users.
(TRAVPR.COM)GERMANY - February 6th, 2012 - Eardex (short for Earth Index) is a free website to compare cost of living worldwide. The Eardex database gathers and displays local prices of more than 45 popular and internationally comparable products and services, such as hotel/hostel, eating out, different supermarket products, Big Mac, Coca-Cola, taxi ride, cigarettes etc. The project is based on the "wisdom of the crowd" principle, which means that the data is provided by the Eardex users who enter the prices on www.eardex.com. It’s like a wiki for prices.
Being online for about three months now, Eardex just introduced several new features, such as showing daily budgets for backpackers and tourists – for information on travel costs at a glance. Thus, Eardex is also a perfect source of information to calculate the holiday/traveling budget.
Another interesting feature is that Eardex now offers free advertising opportunities for website owners, including but not limited to hotels/hostels, restaurants, travel/tourism agencies, blogs etc. The key facts of this offer:
• Users get free links to their own websites • Targeted advertising: Eardex shows the users’ link on the selected town/city, region and country page • An example: the link of a hotel in Los Angeles can be seen by users looking at prices in LA, in California, or in the US • Absolutely free: the only thing that users have to do in return is to enter prices on Eardex.com
This feature is designed to be to the mutual benefit of all parties: Eardex gets more price entries ("wisdom of the crowd" principle) which will be to the benefit of all users looking for information. The website owner entering prices on Eardex.com in return gets free links to his own website – in a targeted manner, as the user can choose the city, region and country page he wants his link to be shown on. Fabian Walker, one of the founders of the German start-up explains how it works: “Users who would like to benefit from this offer just have to visit Eardex.com, sign up for free, fill in the fields for this feature during the registration process, and enter prices for the respective home town. That’s all!”
Although Eardex already attracts many users from more than 140 countries worldwide, the site operators continuously work on improving the website further. All features are designed to help to gather an even larger number of entries, which enables Eardex to offer more reliable information on prices at an increasing number of destinations worldwide – absolutely free for all users.
