We have been using IDX Broker integrated with WordPress for several years now. It is excellent! Great support. It is not simple by any means, but doesn't require in-depth coding knowledge. I manage our site and did all the integration myself a few years ago. We keep it updated and this latest plugin is fantastic and much easier than integrating in the past. Our web site is one of the busiest in our market and we get dozens of very qualified leads from it per month, and always show up fairly high in search rankings, especially long-tail searches. Having a domain and subdomain doesn't seem to affect our rankings at all and I have confirmed that with Google support. We have been tracking analytics on our site for several years and the more integration work I do with IDX broker, the more our traffic stats grow and the more leads we get.
Don't expect to build your web site once, integrate it with IDX broker, then sit back and watch the leads roll in. You have to constantly update, tweak, and improve the site over time, but if you do that, then IDX Broker and WordPress will for sure bring in the leads and send you to the top of the search rankings.
WordPress + IDX Broker = A fantastic combination. We are very, very pleased.
Works Great! If you need an IDX Broker account, you should check out my employer, imFORZA.
This is an extremely powerful plugin. Its fully-customizable, search engine friendly, and integrates within your existing site design (or simply use one of our many developer partners).
This plugin does everything real estate agents, teams, and offices need - and more! Call us with any questions, we're happy to help.
First off WordPress is not for newbies trying to get an IDX website up and running. That being said, if you know WP then you'll love this plugin.
The subdomain issue in a non issue in my opinion. It works seamlessly with my current WP site and it still retains my domain name. You do need to learn how to create wrappers but they make it so easy anyone can do it if you read the directions. I currently have two Platinum WP site and they look and work GREAT!
Being required to use a subdomain on idxbroker.com is horribly unprofessional. As well the default design this plugin offers is horrid. A lot of work would need to be put into this just to make it look moderately decent in anything beyond a 90's website that some nerd made in his mama's basement.
No way to integrate nicely with your current wp site, since you need to use a subdomain.
Probably works in a lot of situations. I could not make it work. Upon logout it did not redirect. Upon registration it did not redirect
This helps setup agent sites hook into IDX Broker Platinum quick, looking forward to providing feedback.
First time out with the IDX Broker Platinum WP Plug-in and I like it a lot. Pulls in everything like the old version, and works perfectly. It doesn't drop in include tags (which is fine as I like to make choices as to where they should go based on specific needs)...
I haven't played with this enough to know if it's got any automated sitemap integration or not, but still... quite happy. Give it a go. :-)
