Update: Sprice launch and better Sydney search results

Did a post last week on Euro and Asian meta-search company Sprice.com and their site re-launch in Singapore and the number of hotel results appearing for Sydney.

It has been pointed out and confirmed that the search results were for Sydney Nova Scotia not Sydney Australia. In my trial search I simply types in the word "Sydney" and pressed return. Nothing on the page indicates that it is the "wrong" Sydney (apologies to any offended Canadians). Have redone the search (see shot below) and produced 4 pages of results. Apologies to Sprice for not picking this up in the post. I would still argue for Sprice improving the destination resolution so that it is much clearer which destination is being searched (again see shot below) but this is a much better position to be in. A Sprice contact mentioned on email to me that they will be working on this.

Still is a strange bit of AdSense in that the shot contains a Wego advertisement (and a Bezurk one too). I suggest Sprice add this to the list of things to update as well.
