The setup of websites is so important to me, that I created this Wordpress Checklist to document my best practices.

Before adding real estate content and an IDX feed, a website must have a beautiful interface, thoughtful navigation, on-site SEO setup and helpful plugins installed.

Not all themes are equal. The best themes are proven to be fast, secure, and easy to use. AgentPress, RealPro and Estate are premium themes that were created specifically for real estate professionals.

Plugins are mini-programs that add awesome features to your website.

Linking to social profiles is helpful in engaging potential clients on sites where they feel most comfortable. “It is like having a discussion with people at their online kitchen table,” Jolly added. These settings can be found in the theme or added with a social profile plugin.

Author highlighting setup is also made easier with the use of plugins. It is important for improving your click thru rating in organic search today and building authority for the future. Author Highlighting is currently under utilized and is a great way to stand out from competition.
