At Agentpoint we have just finished developing a google base wordpress plugin which allows a real estate agency to automatically post their property listings on Google Maps Australia the new real estate listing site in Australia.
What is great about the plugin is that the url for the full property details is the actual property link back to the agent’s website. Why is this essential? Because it means browsers will click through to the agents website to view further details meaning as an agent you can market your other properties and capture enquiry details.
Many of the third party portals agents send their listings to also send the properties to google meaning these portals receive the traffic back from Google. Google have constructed their real estate listing system so that if the original agent lists their property on google, any other ads for that property from real estate portals on google will be removed and a secondary link placed in the agents listings. This basically means that the majority of browsers who view your listing on Google Real Estate will end up back on your website rather than a real estate portal.
How do we do this? Through a wordpress RSS Plugin which searchers all active listings in the database and then notifies google of them. If you are interested in getting your listings on google then please contact me and we can discuss this further.
