And also, these hosts need to stop advising other hosts to "hit decline". Even though Airbnb assures that it's only the large number of declines that will upset your SEO, that is not true. I won't risk doing any decline that I can instead handle by telling the guest that this is not a suitable match for them, and why. If they then do go ahead and instant book, i will get on the phone with cust serve who will see that message and cancel for them. I don't do the declining and I don't do the canceling. Part of why my SEO stays up there where it belongs.
