Listing syndication improvements to free property portals

Interface adjustments on 4 free portals

The OMS interface to the following free portals: ImmoAfrica,uPrice,Price Check and OLX, have been adjusted to include more listings. It will now include all your listings loaded in the last 6 months (based on the mandate start date):

A reminder that the OMS shows any errors with listings to paid portals with a red icon as per sample below. Hover your mouse over the icon to get the error message. In this case, there aren’t enough photos on the listing. You can simply add more photos and the property will re-queued for export to the portal (and usually updated within 15min to property24, private property and myproperty).

There are also direct links to your listings included next to each portal, you can simply click on it to open the listing on the external website.

Property24 rental default

If you have a contract with Property24, your rental listings option checkbox will now be unchecked by default when loading a new property listing. Simply click on it to include the rental to Property24. This has been done to better cater for the limited fixed rental slots on that portal. If the listing status is for sale, it will still be checked by default.image

More interface improvements will be loaded over the next 2 days.

Clickproperty & MyRealestate discontinued

We have discontinued the websites for www.clickproperty.co.za and www.myrealestate.co.za.

The reason for the termination is a) a duplicate content issue between these sites that is not ideal for optimal SEO purposes and b) we’d rather focus our energy to improve our main property portal, www.myproperty.co.za, for better results.

Traffic from these sites (+-20-30,000 visits/month) is now redirected to www.myproperty.co.za
