WordPress SEO by Yoast
Will Yoast XML sitemap find my IDX home listing pages? (2 posts)

    As a realtor, my wordpress site pulls home listings from an IDX database (the feed from the database where all realtors input their homes for sale) for when people do a quick search in the sidebar widget or through an advanced search, as done on this page.

    A general search pulls up a page like this.

    Within that general search, an individual listing page looks like this.

    The IDX developer claims that the individual local home listings will be indexed by Google.

    First: is this possible?
    Second: if so, will using the Yoast SEO plugin's XML sitemap tool do the job to tell Google that I have all these pages?
    Third: would it work better to help Google find these pages if I had, for instance, links in the sidebar to pre-formatted search results pages for the 3 or 4 cities I'm primarily targeting?

    Thanks for any help!

    Granny,

    We do IDX integration for realtors all over the US.

    There are different IDX solutions and some play nicer with Google than others.

    We put a link about real estate website seo optimization at RealtyCandy.com.

    I didn't see your sitemap from Yoast setup on your site. You may want to put a link to it on your homepage footer.

    Google can index IDX pages. We have seen clients have a ton of pages indexed.
    So to answer your questions:
    1. Yes
    2. Yes
    3. Yes

    Good Luck,

    James
