There is no revenue generated so far. ‘The entire site is currently under a careful review. We indeed considered some commercial models to make some profit but we decided to not carry them out until we finalise the optimisition of our services to provide the best user experience’, Marriane told me yesterday in the interview. I wouldnot worry about the future of Yododo. There are so many local resource they can work with, such as hotel reservation, local Ads, etc.
If you are planning your trip in China, I think Yododo must be one of the must-visit website. Yododo currently only targets on the Chinese visitors, but Marriane has given me the words, the english version of Yododo is on their to-do list.
There are some similar services in US, including RealTravel, TripHub, but I have not seen the second startup in China. I would not be surprised if I see more in near future, as the Yododo has boosted the market and more importantly there are so many tourists and un-explored nice places to visit in Great China.
