According to Graham Hills, Product Marketing Manager, Travel, Yahoo! South East Asia, “We have seen huge success with our other travel sites in the region and just weeks after Travel Inspirations was launched in April, the Singapore Travel site reached the number 1 ranking in the Hitwise Travel Agencies category; indicative of the consumer appetite for high quality travel content. Furthermore, “Travel” was ranked in the top key-word searches across the region in the first half of the year, indicative of the rebounding interest in leisure as the economic climate improves”.
