SEO Friendly IDX Content

Buying Buddy's Joomla IDX plugin uses proprietary technology to load property data into Joomla website pages (on your domain - no frames or sub-domains). The additonal PHP class adds SEO optimized titles, meta, og and keyword tags for property data into pages.

Server pre-rendering has been used in the Buying Buddy PHP class for over a decade to ensure that search engines like Google, Bing and others, see listings and landing pages with properties, as content that is part of your website domain.

Property pages are SEO-friendly with optimized SEO tags (meta, title, OG and others). All properties have their own long-tail URL webpage.
