Common website terms

Canadian real estate website WordPress

Mobile ready. All of Gavamedia’s website designs are created using “responsive design”, meaning they respond to your website visitor’s device. A mobile device will see a mobile website that fits nicely onto the small screen. Whereas someone on a desktop computer will see a larger design that capitalizes on the extra screen real estate.

Search Engine Optimization. Search engines such as Google like to see some things, and hate to see others. The more a search engine likes your site, the higher up you’ll be on search results. SEO is a combination of techniques that ensure your website is liked by search engines. The problem is, search engines constantly change what they like, so this is an ever-changing art. All other website providers give you a site that’s SEO optimized for today, but then forget about you. Gavamedia constantly updates our methods to ensure the most current optimization. Read more about how Gavamedia optimizes your website for SEO.

Internet Data Exchange. This is the downloading of the MLS® listings to your website, and occurs every time someone visits an IDX website. This is slow, and makes listings appear a few seconds after a website appears to be finished loading. Read more about IDX, and Gavamedia’s alternative techniques. 

Data Distribution Facility. This is one of the methods CREA uses to share the latest MLS® listings with Gavamedia. Because we’re a licensed Technical Provider for CREA, we can access the latest listings all across Canada. Instead of manually adding a few listings that can quickly become out of date, we connect directly to the latest info, keeping your website fresh and accurate. 

A search within any shape on the map. We provide tools that let your website visitors draw any shape on a map, and see only listings in that area. Better still, we let you define your own areas, which you can name, like “Downtown”. Visitors on your website can see these areas, and see listings only in these locations. 

Content Management System. This is a tool that allows you to edit the pages on your website. There are thousands of competing systems available, but Gavamedia’s is designed specifically for REALTORS®, Brokers, and Agencies. Simply log into Gavamedia.com, and add/edit pages, and even add custom photos.
