This week, Google updated its Destination Search layout after the initial reintroduction of Promoted Hotels. The filtering options, search function, and map navigation remain the same, but the size and design of the listings have changed.

With a few updates to the listing display, Google has made Promoted Hotels the star of Google Destination Search. All listings, not just Promoted Hotel placements, have been enlarged to three times their original size which limits the number of listings a user views on initial page load and on each filter update.

The increased real estate for Promoted Hotels will draw user attention and increase click traffic to these listings, and Koddi expects users to click through Promoted Hotel placements much more than any other listings on Google Destination Search.
