Easily Import Real Estate Listings Via RETS
The real estate websites that I build come with many options and features (scroll down to see). Many of which, you’d expect from a real estate website. One of the more notable features is the ability to import listings from your MLS via RETS. This means that the listing data is actually part of your website and not displayed through a frame. This is better for search engine rankings and improves overall user experience.
RETS Versus IDX AND SEO
I’m sure you’ve seen awesome real estate websites where the listings fit seamlessly into the overall design. You’ve also seen real estates that have a cookie-cutter appearance. The difference is likely to be RETS and IDX. RETS allows you to import MLS data directly into your website’s database so it can be appropriately pulled to the correct locations according to the design.
With IDX Framing, you’ll embed a script or iframe into your website and what you see is what you get. Not only do you not have control over the user experience, loading extra scripts can slow down your website. In addition, listings that are embedded through an external script aren’t actually a part of your website. Therefore, search engines don’t rank this type of content very high. This is why you’ll want to consider an MLS that offers RETS and a website designer that knows how to implement it.
