Just look below under the type of account you're using to learn about your options, and how to put them to work on your site.

SEO boost for your keywords!
As we discussed in Part one of this series, page title tags play an important role in SEO. In addition to using keywords in titles of Saved Searches, you can use them in title tags of other types of IDX pages.

Optima IDX - IDX Integration for Websites

To get listings indexed on your own domain in Optima IDX, you should apply HTML branding to your IDX pages, rather than framing the IDX pages on your site. Although search engine spiders will often index framed pages, this can be unpredictable. You'll also need to request a custom domain for your IDX pages (a free option). IDX listings will be indexed on your domain once you've added them to your site using the features below.

Saved Searches
Add stand-alone search results pages optimized for search engine indexing.
