Back in February, we had a funny little post asking everyone to please make sure to map their listings. We also added a task to Linda’s checklist, to look for listings without geocoded map locations. The good news? Only 10 active listings this month didn’t have a map location. The bad news? We’ve just learned that many map locations are completely wrong. A lot of them, in fact. We have a setting where we can “Require Geocode Map Confirmation”… when entering a listing. When this setting is on, the map will pop up after entering an address and you will be asked to click next to confirm the location of the pin on the map. If it’s wrong, you can change it at that time… (see below for our previous post with easy instructions on how to be locate your pin location). Love it or hate that idea? Please VOTE!
