Guidelines for Helpful Votes

Travelers may vote for a review that they find particularly helpful to them, by clicking the button at the bottom of each review.

Helpful vote counts are displayed on each review and in member profiles. These votes do not factor in our ranking algorithms.

TripAdvisor removes votes that fall under any of the following scenarios:

  • Member votes for their own review
  • Duplicate votes
  • Owner votes for a review about their own business
  • Owner votes for a review about a competitor’s business
