How to Connect a TREND RETS feed to a WordPress site?3 min read
TREND is one of the largest MLS on the east coast covering 27,000 agents and brokers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
It is also a member of the Mid-Atlantic behemoth Bright MLS, which combines 9 MLS across 6 states.
Now you can connect a TREND RETS feed to your real estate WordPress site with Realtyna’s Organic MLS Integration.
WHY DO I NEED A TREND RETS FEED?
Do you want to be among the top agents/brokers for the Philadelphia region? It’s going to be very difficult if your IDX display is a frame.
The reason is that framing saps the SEO value from your site, leaving you low in the search engine results rankings. You can overcome this by paying for search engine ads, but this is going to cost you and it will provide only a temporary boost.
A better system would provide for indexable IDX listings that are “readable” by search engines. This is exactly what Organic MLS Integration provides.
Each listing in the TREND database will be imported to your website servers and regenerated in the form of a WordPress page with a unique url. It can be 100 GBs or more of new listing pages, each a possible result for a relevant client web search: https://realtyna.com/blog/best-wordpress-idx-for-seo/
WHAT EXACLTLY IS ORGANIC MLS INTEGRATION?
Organic MLS Integration is a software package for WordPress to connect to the TREND MLS database via RETS, import the listings, and display them on your site.
It’s an alternative to many IDX products you see advertised on the web, moreover it is designed to provide you superior SEO.
