    • how do you communicate with users?
    • what is your marketing plan like?

    Site looks good. When looking at travel from the UK I might have spotted an issue though - it says UK → Canada is visa free but you need to have an electronic travel authorisation to travel to Canada. Wouldn't that put it into the E-visa category?

    Congratulations! That's some fantastic work!

    Got a few questions:

    • How are you monetising the website? Is it Google Ads, affiliate links or something else?
    • How did you get those big publications to write about you?
    • Where is the majority of your traffic coming from? Is it the publications, search engine rankings or are you buying ads?
    1. 1

      #1 Partnerships, subscription and ads
      #2 No but got picked up by many big publications
      #3 SEO, i have never paid for any ads
