Homesnap Introduces Homesnap Pro+ Tool to Help Agents with Google My Business Profiles
BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 30, 2018 -- Homesnap, the market-leading national home search platform that provides real-time MLS data to consumers and a mobile productivity tool for agents, today announced the release of Homesnap Pro+, a tool that helps real estate agents set up and manage their Google My Business Profile, a task that has often been challenging for agents. Homesnap Pro+ helps agents set up their Google My Business Profile and manage their profile in real time, thanks to Homesnap's access to up-to-date MLS information. Homesnap Pro+ creates, launches, and optimizes all aspects of a real estate agent's business profile on Google, including the following: Google My Business Profile: Homesnap will assist agents in setting up their Google My Business Profile and will automatically load it with their photos, listings, contact information and more. Generate and Manage Reviews: Homesnap will assist agents in soliciting reviews from current and past clients, alert agents when they receive a new review, and send agents regular performance reports. Automatic Posts & Updates: Homesnap will help agents turn all of their new listings and recent sales into posts and will also publish insightful market commentary on their behalf. "78% of real estate searches begin with a search engine, and a robust Google My Business Profile helps agents build trust and credibility with prospects. Yet nearly 90% of agents don't have a Google My Business Profile," said John Mazur, CEO of Homesnap. "Because Homesnap can help agents set up their Google My Business Profiles on Google, we can continue our mission of making them more successful in how they attract and serve clients." In 2019 and beyond, Homesnap Pro+ will continue to roll out features and tools that help agents provide better client service and connect with prospects in real, tangible ways.

Google’s Information-Based Ranking Shift
  This month, Google scientists published a paper proposing a shift in Google rankings. Traditionally, Google has ranked sites based, in part, on the links on a site that connect to the relevance of the search term. With this shift, Google's algorithm would expand beyond just links to the quality and accuracy of the data on the site. This is known as Knowledge-Based Trust (KBT) and would primarily affect searches on people, events, and places. Sites providing inaccurate or outdated information would be impacted by this change. If implemented, Google will cross -check and evaluate onsite facts with their internal Knowledge Vault, a Google database that has already accumulated over 1.6 billion facts (each correlated with an accuracy confidence score). Websites would not only be evaluated and ranked based on popularity, but also on accuracy and trustworthiness. This reinforces and further validates the need to supply accurate content. Today, providing erroneous facts or statistics might go unnoticed by Google. Moving forward however, those lapses could not only affect the reliability of your content, but could directly impact the rankings of your site on the most popular search engine. If you're concerned about the accuracy of your content, now is the time to audit your site and see if any changes need to be made to ensure optimal online visibility.

Search Engine Journal recently found that 93 percent of online experiences begin with a search engine, proving that search engine optimization is imperative for a business to succeed. To trigger more organic traffic to their websites, real estate agents can use the WebsiteBox SEO Web app to identify top keyword suggestions. It also helps agents understand how their websites rank against competing websites.

Not only are they able to uncover who their website visitors are, but they can also identify geographic and online location of site visitors, providing a greater understanding of the impact of their online marketing efforts.

iHomefinder Launches SEO-Friendly IDX/MLS Search
BERKELEY (MMD Newswire) March 16, 2011 -- iHomefinder today introduced iSearch Optima IDX, a new search engine-optimized version of its market-leading real estate property search. By using Optima IDX as part of their websites, real estate agents and brokers can greatly improve their chances of being found by consumers and converting leads into valued clients. Moreover, Optima IDX is easy and engaging for consumers to use, compelling them to return time and again. Many real estate professionals know that search engine optimization (SEO) is important because the vast majority of homebuyers begin their home search process on the Internet, most starting from a search engine like Google Web Search™ or Bing™ search. This makes it critical that a real estate website's content be fully discoverable by search engines; Optima IDX ensures that property listings are found and fully indexed by search engines. Optima IDX pages are designed and coded to facilitate search engine discovery and indexing, including the use of universal resource locators (URLs) with full property address details and enhanced listing information. Optima IDX also makes it easy for consumers to share listings across their social networks with Facebook and Twitter integration, expanding a real estate professional's ability to generate word-of-mouth promotion and further improving SEO. Some of iHomefinder's key web design partners are already raving about Optima IDX. "I love the usability of the Optima interface and its focus on lead conversion," said Josh Galvin, Owner of Tizish, a prominent real estate website design firm. "This definitely stands out above other IDX systems that load their systems with marketing features at the cost of usability and lead generation, which are really what we need from an IDX system." Optima's usability features include a unique new multi-city selection interface, expansive property photographs, and a wealth of page customization tools that web designers can leverage. Optima IDX extends iHomefinder's reputation for superior lead generation. Proven marketing tools such as listing alert emails, the consumer property organizer, and showing request forms have been honed for even better usability. In addition, iHomefinder has added a new suite of consumer engagement tools, including Walk Score®, Great Schools™, and Google Maps™ Street View. These engagement tools help ensure that real estate websites with Optima IDX not only attract consumers and keep them coming back, but that consumers are compelled to reach out to the real estate professional using these effective tools on their website. "iSearch Optima IDX is the fruition of iHomefinder's fourteen years of experience in the online real estate space, serving thousands of brokerages and agents," said Alon Chaver, CEO of iHomefinder. "Optima's SEO capabilities and social media integration build upon the WordPress and mobile IDX innovation we've recently rolled out, keeping our clients at the forefront of online real estate technology." iSearch Optima IDX fits best in websites with a 720 to 750 pixel-wide container, making it perfect for WordPress applications and websites with a vertical navigation bar. The new product is a free upgrade for all existing iHomefinder customers. A demonstration website using Optima IDX can be viewed at http://www.anyhomesrealty.com/optima.
