How to Connect MiamiRE to WordPress and Create an IDX Website With SEO Impact
Miami is one of the most renowned real estate markets in the world. With exclusive neighborhoods like Brickell, Coconut Grove, Miami Beach and the Coral Gables, the area attracts athletes, actors and businesspeople, as well as luxury, multi-million dollar listings.
Up and coming neighborhoods, such as the Miami Design District and Mid Town, also present investment opportunities.
In short, Miami has a lot to offer for those looking to get into real estate. The MLS that covers the area is Miami Realtors or MiamiRE. To get started as a real estate agent in Miami, you will need to connect to MiamiRE and set up an IDX website.
In this blog, we’ll walk you through each step of building a Miami-based IDX website with SEO impact using Realtyna’s Organic MLS Integration.
What is Organic MLS Integration?
Organic MLS Integration is Realtyna’s WordPress extension that allows you to connect to an MLS and import listings.
The system boosts the organic SEO content on your site and helps improve page rankings.
Check out our Organic MLS demos to see how the software performs.
Organic MLS Integration works by regenerating the MiamiRE database on your site. Each listing has a unique WordPress page.
Each of these pages are indexed by Google and other search engines, which increases your ranking score.
