Title Tag and Description Meta Customization

Our IDX now gives the ability for title tag customization! We base all of our products around SEO and this is an important step to make sure you succeed! We also offer you the chance to modify the description meta tags on select pages!

To alter the title tags, navigate to Optima Express > IDX Pages. Expand the options for the page you wish to edit.

You can change the Title Tag on a page by replacing the text in the Title field with your own. We now allow listing- or search-specific variables to be added to the title tags for Property Details and Saved Search Pages. Type “{” to see a list of available options for these fields. Click Save Changes when your edits are complete.

Polygon Saved Searches

Power, Broker and Gold package clients can create Saved Search Pages that show results within an area drawn on a map. This allows you to target specific local areas – whether it’s one block, a coastline, the area around a golf course or an entire region, your Saved Search Page will dynamically pull all results in that exact location meeting your search criteria. Polygon Saved Search Pages are available for all property types in your MLS Board when you search by basic criteria.

HOW TO: Create A Polygon Saved Search

1. Set up your Saved Search Page by accessing the IDX Control Panel > Listings > Saved Search Pages.

2. Click “Add A Saved Search Page” and fill out the required fields. For Type, choose Polygon Search or Advanced Polygon Search (Advanced Polygon Search is available for residential property types only, and is limited to one MLS).

3. Enter any search criteria – property type, price range, beds/baths – as needed.

4. Draw your polygon. You can zoom or drag the map to the location you desire. Begin your polygon by clicking the map, then outline the area you’d like used in your search. Double-click to complete your polygon, or close it by dropping the final point on top of the initial point. Edit the shape by dragging any existing map point, or erase your polygon over and begin again by clicking Start Over.

5. Click Save to save and return to the Saved Search Index, or click Save & Preview to see the results open in a new window.

If your search returns more than 300 results, you’ll receive a warning as you save, letting you know more results are included than can be displayed. You can edit your polygon or search criteria, or save anyway. Searches with more than 1000 results will show a message instructing you to narrow your search before it can be saved.

HOW TO: Display Featured and Supplemental Listings by Property Type

Agents and Brokers who represent Rental, Commercial and other non-residential properties often want to display those properties on dedicated pages. This is now possible as we continue to improve our services for you!

1. If the properties to be displayed have been entered as Supplementals, please be sure that within the Control Panel > Setup > Listing Settings > Featured Listings, “Show Supplemental Properties on Featured Listings Page” is set to “On.”

2. Create a new page or post in WordPress. Using the shortcode selector, opt to add a Listing Gallery and choose “Featured Listings” from the dropdown menu. Select the property type you wish to include and configure the gallery as desired. The shortcode added to your page will look something like this (example is for Commercial listings):
[optima_express_featured sortBy=”pd” propertyType=”COM” header=”true” includeMap=”false”]

3. The page, when viewed, will include only those Featured & Supplemental listings with the selected property type.

SHORTCODES: Search Page, Valuation Request & Other IDX Page Shortcodes
