Drive More Traffic to your Listing Website with Online Classifieds

We’ve already discussed the importance of marketing and promoting your single property websites after you have created them.

We also said that as real estate professionals, we are very aware of how busy you are and so have made it our goal to include as many useful tools and features as possible in our listing websites in order to make the important task of marketing your website significantly easier.

One of the best features we have included in our property websites is providing you with an html snippet of your website. This html snippet enables you to easily cut and paste your data into online classified sites such as the very popular Craigslist, Backpage or Ebay.

Don’t forget to take advantage of this free service. Craigslist can be a powerful tool for generating free traffic to your property website. It is one of the most popular websites in the world, with millions of daily visitors.

Regularly posting relevant Craigslist classifieds that point to your listings and include a link to your property websites have the potential of driving significant amounts of highly targeted traffic to your property websites. Get in the habit of using our handy html snippet for each listing and you can see a real difference in the amount of traffic your site receives.

Get More Traffic to your Property Website with Listing Syndication

Creating a single property website for each of your listings is an excellent way to use online tools to enhance your real estate marketing efforts.

However, as any seasoned webmaster knows, creating a website is not enough – you need to make sure the website is actually found by search engines and by potential home buyers.

At Listing Domains, we are aware that you need to market your website, and we are also very aware of how busy you are and how little time you have to engage in marketing efforts. This is why we included so many social media and online marketing tools in our single property websites. The tools are built right in, so that you can easily use them to promote your listings. In many cases, the tools are doing the work for you.

Whenever you create a single property website with Listing Domains, we automatically feed your website to all the major search engines such as Google and Bing. We also add your meta tags for you, to make sure each website is indexed properly by search engines.

In addition to sending your property websites to search engines, we also feed them to major property website portals, including GoogleBase, Trulia, Zillow, and more.

Making sure your website is included in search engines and in property website portals helps your website get the most traffic in the least amount of time.

Single Property Websites: Track Your Website Statistics

Any seasoned webmaster will tell you that having access to your website statistics is a crucial part of running a website. What’s more, website statistics are an integral part of any online marketing campaign. They are the best, most accurate feedback system.

Checking your website statistics tells you if what you’ve been doing so far is working, and whether you need to keep fine-tuning your search engine optimization and your social media marketing efforts in order to gain more visibility and achieve better results.

As experienced real estate professionals AND seasoned webmasters, we know it doesn’t make sense to build a single property website without giving you convenient access to the website’s statistics. This is why each of our property websites has built-in website statistics that tell you how many unique visitors you have had, and also tell you the top 5 referring search engines.

In addition, you can easily view your daily activity, monthly activity and total visitors. We have also included a reporting function in our property websites. This useful tool allows you to email a detailed report to your sellers. You can show them exactly how popular their home is!

Real Estate Websites: Why You Need Search Engine Optimization

Creating an agent website is an important step in the right direction when it comes to real estate marketing. But creating a real estate website is not enough: you want people to actually find your website when they search for an agent or for listings.

This is where search engine optimization becomes important. There are many things you can do to help major search engines such as Google index your site correctly, and we help you with them. One of the things you need to do is submit your website to all the major search engines. We do that for you – one less thing to worry about!

We also include a link exchange opportunity in our agent sites. When you get legitimate links from other websites that point at your site, you increase your site’s authority and therefor its visibility in the search engines.

When it comes to on-page optimization, or in other words the way you optimize your own site to include important keywords, our real estate sites enable you to modify your meta tags to include your surrounding areas and your areas of expertise.

We also provide tutorials on pay per click marketing using tools such as Google Adwords, on blogs (blogging is a great way to add relevant, optimized content to your agent site!), and other ways to help drive traffic to your real estate site .
