This site needs revamping but even so, without doing any marketing for 5 years, gets 700 monthly. With a little marketing and refreshing. this site is a gem. which is why I have held onto for so long. The potential is enormous.

Add a pet product store, do more Pet News Radio interviews, social media and this site is a goldmine.

United States

I own porterpr.com, a 22-year old public relations and marketing firm that specializes in getting companies in the news. I started vacationpetfriendly as Pet Hotels of America and rebranded it after getting in the LA Times four times, Associated Press, Yahoo News, Peter Greenburg etc. I started the website in 2010 as a side interest and brought it to life. Then I eventually rebranded it to Vacation Pet Friendly. At that point, I was unable to put so much time and effort into the site, even though as Pet Hotels of America, I had reached Google page 1 position 4 because of the on page SEO and media coverage. During this time, I was also raising my daughter on my own. I'm am now working at not being such a workaholic and perfectionist.
