Another great blog Chris. I wonder how long it will be before the major property data uploaders to realestate.com.au and domain.com.au such as port plus, HubOnline, Commerce Australia, etc, provide the ability for agents to upload to Google.
The last thing agents (well, their admin staff that is) want to do is have more work in uploading properties to another site before there is any real promise of traffic (take myhome for example).
Interesting that about two years ago Fairfax had a beta type site called propertyguru.com.au which listed both realestate.com.au and domain.com.au listings on the one site (but favoured domain.com.au listings in the results) in an attempt to have the most comprehensive coverage of properties… Funnily enough it’s redirected now to Fairfax’s www.homepriceguide.com.au.
