It tells the city population (1,241,400) and the number of homes in the area (490.000) and the median income ($66,700). It then tells how many Airbnb listings (3375) and shows the breakdown entire place, private room, shared room. It shows the number of reviews that listings have. It gives many other bits of data, and also shows the top 10 listings or top 100 listings in any given city.
Note, that as of this point, AirDna only provides data for cities in the United States.
Airdna does international as well as you can see on their front page. I dont like it . I can go onto it find my listing it will tell me how many bookings I had last year and estimate the money made. I dont think airbnb should be making this info so readily available to pull from their website.

I agree, Apricotnelli. I dont' think it's right that anyone can go onto a website and find info about which listing made how much money. I didn't actually see that they could do that when I checked my listing on the site. For my listing, I could only see the price per night and reservations per year info on it. But I agree, I find this nosing into other's business to be intrusive.
Something I found odd, and concerning, was that AirDna was showing one of my listings that I have now unlisted. When I clicked on it, I was able to see it, but that might only be because hosts can always see all their listing regardless of whether they are unlisted. I hope others can't see my unlisted places thru AirDna as that defeats the purpose of unlisting...
Well Deborah if you can see price per night and number of bookings (I forget if it does number of nights) you have a fair idea how much money you are bringing in. Airbnb are already giving our details to the tax authorities but if for instance you are in a leasing situation and letting a spare room your landlord could use this site to check up on you. I dont think this lot are associated with airbnb and I really dont think that airbnb should make this level of detail so easy to pull from their website.

What's weird about Airdna is that the guy (Scott?) goes to the Opens, and is not shy about introducing himself as the Airdna guy. He has a profile, he is a host, but how nobody has put together his profile with his site is odd. Especially considering that it's totally against the TOS to use bots or any other means to "scrape" info which is what he's doing.
Having said that, I use his site as reference all the time to keep abreast of what the competition is doing. I don't do all of my business from Airbnb and don't get reviews for every booking, so my own info is not close to my actual earnings. Since I can see everyone else's info and use it to my advantage, I can hardly complain that they can also see mine.
It could be that airbnb only deletes the link on their own pages to a masked listing or even a deleted one, but leaves the files on the server. When Airdna has saved the link with the complete address, it still leads to the listing. Remember, in the launchpad discussions, I proposed to Jonny that they put an option in the profile if someone does not want to have his profile findable by google, which is quite easy at the moment. Airbnb has only the option to hide everything. But from the reaction of Johnny, he clearly had never heard about it and was not familiar with the notion to put a "don't search/don't follow" for the robots in the page heads.
The other thing that would be great for Airbnb to do is to separate multiple listings so they don't all link to the same profiles. That should quiet down the noise about hosts with multiple listings, blah blah blah. But I'm probably in the minority of wanting this. I just got tired of seeing how enraged people could get over hosts with multiple listings. They think we make so much money without working, just put the listing up, go to sleep and get the payment.
