Hi Viggie, I have a feeling bookings are down because it is an expensive inn, and times are bad. When I look at their google analytics for the past year, their hits are lower in the last 5 months. But it is a seasonal business to some extent, busier in the summer and fall (for foliage viewing and apple picking). Thanks, I hadn't checked Trip Advisor.

How they searched for their site? Their B&B is at Concord, so a natural search would be something like - bed and breakfast concord. Their site is appearing in 7th place for this search in google (couldn't find them in bing for same search, but appears 4th for - concord b&b inn ). More than the exact keywords used for search. What do they expect out of search rankings? Do they get bookings / calls through their site? They have good rankings in TripAdvisor so it may not be too hard.
