Our guides are organized in sections. Each section can contain articles and listings.

Listings are points of interest that can be placed on map (e.g. places to see, eat, stay, walks & tours, etc.). Articles do not have a map location.

Rather than a general rule, the number of articles and listings should be determined by your type of guide and destination.

For traditional guides with sections for places to see, eat, sleep, etc., we suggest to include at least 80 listings and articles. This would make it a "Best Of" kind of guide. 100-200+ articles/listings would be better for a comprehensive guide that can sell at a higher price. Itinerary-style guides can have fewer listings.

There is no word limit for articles and listings.
