website. If you are a restaurant group, choose the Multi-Restaurant Reservation code button. If you
have a flash website email for instructions. To drive the most
online business, place the reservation path on your home page above the fold and in your navigation




Mobile Website

Since the launch of the OpenTable mobile application, we have found that 1 in every 5 diners (and
rising) are booking reservations from a hand-held device. OpenTable decided to partner with DudaMobile to
offer the opportunity to customize your website as a value-add service. We realize that offering this will
reduce the frustration guests may have trying to find information such as the reservation button by having to
pinch, pull and expand their screen on the device itself. We also wanted to ensure that if a diner is going to
the restaurant website to book and can’t find the link, that they don’t abandon your site and look for a
different restaurant. Your mobile site is its completely customizable through the dashboard. Please provide
your webmaster’s contact information to us if you need assistance getting this in place. 










Covers Reporting

Standard Covers represent seated diners who booked through, our mobile apps, or our affiliate
partners, but not part of the POP promotional program. Take a look at historical data over the past year by month.
