MBB IDX and Widgets
Listing Data Not Updating
Be aware that caching systems that cache your website content will also cache content from Buying Buddy widgets, which means the latest listing details may not be shown.
This is typically caused by WordPress caching plugins - and ANY caching system for ANY website.
This can impact at least all the following:
- Photos not updating for your listing
- Open House times and dates not accurate
- Price inaccurate
- Property status inaccurate (e.g. it sold but still shows active)
This will also impair the ability for search engines to see the latest listings and will therefore impact the indexing of listing pages for SEO.
For example a featured listing page may continue to show listings as Active when they are not, open house properties may be inaccurate, or photos may not update, and so on.
Change your cache time frame to 24 hours (this usually resolves most issues)
Update settings for your caching plugin to exclude all pages that have Buying Buddy Widgets on them
