@Max - I remember seeing a video by MC about the pages, but I know a lot of real estate sites that add and remove listings all the time that seem to fair well. I think we will roll them out over the next couple of months as everyone here is suggesting.
@Tedster - Our site is setup so that listings have unique titles and meta descriptions. Each listing also comes with local community and neighborhood information that G crawls in order to keep them cached.
For every listing we rank if you were to search the MLS# or the address in the top 5 every time, many times we are the first result over sites like T, Z, and the big R. (I'm sure you know what those sites are if you have been in the real estate SEO game.)
We get a lot of long-tail traffic that converts into showing appointments from people searching MLS#'s and addresses. This is the reason we want to add the extra listings. Even though we don't really service those markets, we can refer out the leads to other agents for a nice chunk of change.
Anyway, what about the dual sitemaps? Is that a good idea to keep them separate or just integrate them both? Thanks!
