My wife and I have just opened our first Airbnb. We are excited but very nervous. Our listing has been up for just over a week and we have 6 bookings for 17 nights so far. While we were listed as "new," we had regular traffic (as shown on the Airbnb app). But our numbers haven't moved in the last couple days. One thing I've learned so far: checking for notifications doesn't bring notifications! We have a lot to learn, and I look forward to meeting others on this forum.

Welcome, Mitch, nice to see you here!
Yes, it is common for new hosts to see many bookings right when they start, since you will receive an artificial promotion above more established hosts, for a short time when you start. After a while though that goes away and then you will be competing with everyone else in your area on equal footing. I hope you find this forum helpful!
