My wife is a Realtor and she constantly gets solicitations from other MLS website providers and when she does she always forwards them to me so that I can see what kind of special offers or new technologies that are being offered.
Well today she forwarded this company iHOUSEweb http://www.ihouseelite.com/
Well the very first slide in there slide show say “Boost your Google ranking with an ELITE website!”
So of course being the SEO person that I am I had to take a min to see what has changed since the last time I looked them over about 2 years ago – so I clicked on the link http://www.ihouseelite.com/samples.html.
While I was quickly realizing that all of their sample sites were all displaying NON indexable MLS listings the little Live-Chat window popped up to ask if I needed any help or if I had any questions?
So here is a copy and paste for your reading enjoyment.
Do you have any questions that I can help you with?
ME ) – do you offer a non iframed mls?
Yes we do
ME ) – all samples are showing MLS as Iframed
ME ) – can you provide me a link to a example site then?
ME ) – <script src=”http://idxpro.cisdata.net/AR413477/Embed/idxpro_app/“/><iframe frameborder=”0″ style=”width: 100%; height: 1201px; padding: 0pt; margin: 0pt; border: 0pt none; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent;” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ allowtransparency=”true” src=”http://idxpro.cisdata.net/AR413477/Search/index?parent_url=http%3A//redrockproperties.org/” name=”IDXProAppFrame” id=”IDXProAppFrame”/>
ME ) – thats another Iframed solution
ME ) – these listings are non indexable
Yes they are and no it’s not framed
have you started a test drive of our IDX?
ME ) – I would only be interested if you can provide me with an example that’s not iframed
Operator Stephen enters the chat
ME ) – that’s a dead link
try it again
ME ) – http://murrayrealtyflorida.com/
ME ) – goes to godaddy
what site are you putting the IDX on?
ME ) – my real estate site – but I’m not interested in a non indexable mls
ok good luck

SO – they basically hung up on me! LOL a live chat hang up!
So after they just live-chat hung up on me I thought I would share my story with the world to show everyone just how much BS is pushed especially this line of BS “Yes they are and no it’s not framed” – person didn’t even know what they were selling.
If you want a REAL Google boost then you should be using something like RETS PRO that uses 100% indexable listings and 100% Dynamic SEO options!
