How will your service help my SEO?
Our IDX content is optimized for search engines to discover and index on your site.
- On WordPress websites (this includes our hosted IDX websites), IDX content is indexed directly on your domain without a subdomain required.
- On websites that are not using WordPress, we offer an HTML integration option that puts IDX content on your chosen subdomain of your website domain, such as “search.yourdomain.com”. This option is possible only if you are not using framing to add IDX content on your website pages.
Learn more about how an iHomefinder account can contribute to an effective SEO strategy in our article Real Estate SEO Features Overview.
Can your service integrate with other services?
Yes. New leads received in your iHomefinder account can be forwarded to other services. Learn more >
Does your service work on all mobile devices?
Our service is fully responsive to provide a great experience on any device and screen size when used with a responsive website design or WordPress theme.
What is responsive design?
Responsive web design enables content to adapt fluidly to different screen sizes and orientations. This eliminates the need to design and maintain separate websites for different devices or screen sizes.
There are also significant SEO benefits in having a responsive website versus redirecting to mobile-only versions. For example, Google explicitly recommends a single, responsive website as its preferred configuration for mobile websites.
Redirects are not used in responsive design, so don’t be misled by services that use redirects and claim to be responsive.
Does Optima work on a WordPress multisite?
Yes – a network installation is possible for a multisite. Each user client requires a separate Optima Express account with a corresponding registration key, entered in the client’s WordPress dashboard.
How much can the display be customized?
Web developers can use CSS to customize many elements of Optima IDX and Optima Express, such as background colors, button colors, font attributes, and more.
Our free trial accounts allow web developers to explore the display styling options available.
Can anyone get an iHomefinder account?
All of our paid accounts require IDX licensing approval from an MLS® System. You must be a real estate professional who is an active participant of an MLS® System to qualify for IDX licensing. Our free trial accounts do not require IDX licensing and use California listings provided for demonstration purposes only.
Our IDX Coverage page provides a list of MLS® Systems for which we currently offer service. We add new service regularly, so please contact us about adding service if you don’t see your MLS® System listed.
