RentLinx Feeds Google Base
RentLinx Apartments are now on Google Base We're proud to announce that all RentLinx members' properties will now be automatically submitted to the Google Base database each night. Housing and Rentals Properties in the RentLinx database will appear in the Rentals and Housing categories of Google Base. Properties with no availability are not submitted. Renters searching Google Base will be able to find all RentLinx member's properties and contact you directly from the links provided. View all RentLinx Google Base Listings Renters can find RentLinx properties through Google Base and...? Google Base is still in a Beta stage, so the extent to which the data submitted will be used by Google is still unclear. According to the Google Base website, "Google Base is a place where you can post all types of content and have it show up on Google." That seems vague to us too. Not So Fast Google Base only allows updates once per day, and those updates can take up to 24 hours to be published to their listings. Any updates to a RentLinx property may not appear on Google Base for up to 48 hours. Pushing the Boundaries RentLinx's integration with Google Base is another example of how RentLinx listings appear in many different venues and mediums, and takes us one step closer to becoming The Apartment Multi-List.
