Google provides a tremendous amount of tools for building a website. A good portion of real estate websites make use of some form of Google’s services. For example, our AgentsBuddy real estate website system uses Google Maps to display listings on a map. This feature if very popular with our REALTORS® and their clients. BUT…did you know Google limits the number of “views” a site can have on their maps? What this means is that viewers of your website can stare at a blank screen if your website has reached it’s limit.
We choose to pay for Google’s services instead of using their free version. When choosing a web company, make sure the provider does not rely on free service. This guarantees your viewers will never be disappointed and the cost to you is near non-existent. Can you imagine losing a potential sale for something as silly as a “free” service not allowing you access?
