TRIBUS includes the listing MLS® number in the URL of all of your listing pages.
The listing URL format is as follows:
for example: tribuswp.com/properties/MO/Ladue/63124/mls-16062989/id-72/15-Pine-Valley-Drive/
*The "properties" slug may differ, depending on your site's theme. Check a current listing on your site to see which slug prefix is used for your theme.
A few important details:
Because TRIBUS works with multiple MLS's in North America, we had to include a unique identifier in the URL in the unlikely event that a duplicate MLS # exists. This unique identifier is represented by the ID number in the URL. In the above example, it's id-72, which is the MLS board number, and is unique to TRIBUS.
Everything after the MLS number in the URL is optional. For example, site visitors will get to the same page if they go to http://tribuswp.com/properties/MO/Ladue/63124/mls-16062989 OR http://tribuswp.com/properties/MO/Ladue/63124/mls-16062989/id-72/15-Pine-Valley-Drive/. However, for brokerages who are members of more than one MLS, it's highly recommended that you utilize the full URL, to avoid potential duplicate MLS numbers. Regardless of which URL is used, the full URL will display in the address bar of the listing detail page.
Format Adheres to SEO best practices
Should a visitor enter an incorrect MLS number, or if the listing is no longer available, they will not be redirected to the home page or see a "listing unavailable" error message, they will be taken to a listing results page up to the zip code in the URL. Not only is this more visitor-friendly, it also aligns with SEO best practices.
