Search the real estate web (TM)

Search-the-real-estate-webJust for weekend fun – and because it is also useful – we released a search engine based on Google’s custom search engine technology, which allows visitors to search real estate related content that are provided only on real estate websites. In other words, it is a search engine which uses the subset of the whole web. The search engine index is built with pages from Zillow, Inman News, Trulia, ActiveRain and RealBird (and all other domain names linked from those sites).

For example, if you use RealBird to market your properties online and your RealBird account is set up with your own website and blog links, the search engine index will contain your listing information on RealBird and all the content from your website and blog.

The search engine can be found at

Here are a few sample searches:

Searching for a real estate professional: Janie Coffey

Looking for property for sale information: Hopkinton homes for sale

Searching for real estate terms: “Real estate capital gain when selling your home”

Searching for industry news: Century 21 advertising

You can also grab and deploy it as a widget on your own website and blog. See it in action on the right side of this blog. We also embedded it below. Use the embed code through the “Grab widget” button or to customize the width and height on the widget homepage.

if (WIDGETBOX) WIDGETBOX.renderWidget(‘b406ed64-0a10-45d9-a8f3-fa7f88fd1ab7’);

  1. this is great! I can’t wait to install the widget on my blog. Realbird is always coming out with the most useful applications for real estate professionals with cutting edge aesthetics. This just popped up from my Google Alerts, thank you for the mention!

  2. Bill – I have to check the config. The custom search should pick up content from the linked domain names as well.
    Searching for does not return any pages, and I know you have it linked from your ActiveRain profile, so it should be. Google’s custom search index is not the same as their regular website index, but nevertheless, this configuration should work. I’ll look into it and post an update
