Support » Plugin: IMPress for IDX Broker » Waiting for leads

  • I have used idxBroker for about a year and love the look and functions of the plugin. It looks great on my site, however I am still waiting for leads. I have only had a handful over the last year with over 200 widgets and over 550 saved links built. I have paid for idxBroker developers to make everything look amazing, just wish there would be some leads. Also we do not rank very well even after doing much work on the website. I am at a loss to try and figure this out.

    Hi, We would love to help. What is your website URL?

    my website is http://www.wallerrealestate.ca Still waiting for this to show any results I can even measure. I have used this for 2 years now and only getting maybe 1 sign up about every 2 months. Not at all performing the way i was expecting or hoping for at all. I have spent many hours and weeks as well as over a thousand dollars to dev for set up trying to get this working to bring in some or any leads to speak of.

    Hi Lana!

    Simply displaying listings will not get you found in the search engines. In fact, if not careful an IDX can actually hurt your overall rankings. It doesn’t matter how nice your site looks or how many listings, if it does not rank in search, you won’t get found.

    I’m the web/seo guy for my realtor son. We don’t get a ton of IDX leads either. In fact, most leads come from our overall SEO plan, keyword research and helpful local blog posts. Our philosophy is, as real estate professionals we owe our web visitors the ability to search for homes. As a side benefit, by offering listings, we get a few leads here and there.

    Straight up, good SEO is hard work! it requires amazing original content, perfectly structured for search engines, and humans. It all starts with research and a solid foundation. There is NO secret sauce. There are tricks of the trade, yes, but no one great thing! I’m not trying to discourage you, but this is reality. Yes, as a starting point we all need fast loading websites that displays well on ALL devices. My most lucrative web pages have little to do with listings and everything to do with providing helpful and original content. Determine the pain points of your audience and provide great content directed at solving their problems. Then, once you gain visitors, I promise they will take advantage of your home search offering. That is assuming, your listings don’t take too long to load.

    I will suggest doing extensive research into the process of holistic SEO. Start by searching the term on google. The guys ranking at the top can be trusted to lead you in the right direction.
