You need to manually bind your listing to your profile. What you do is to go to find homes, and search for your own listings. Once you find them, you will save the listings to your saved homes. Then you will 'claim' your lising as yours (there is a little link on the listng'. Once you 'claimed' the listing, it will show up under your profile.
You may go to my profie and see the listings I have. Although I do have a problem with one of my listings fed (again) from Postlets, and the thumb nail pitture disappeared - it does not happen with MLS feed, but with the override by my postlet entry.
Hope this answers your question.
I think Sylvia may have the correct answer to your question. Evidently, it is not something that happens Automatically.
XML Feeds are great if you have a lot of listings. Saves you the trouble of having to add or update them by hand, one at a time. That is how this whole project got started for me. I was approaced by a realtor who was looking for a tool that would send all 2000 listings directly form his database to 20 different web sites. When we couldn't find one, we set out to create it ourselves. A realtor in Raleigh has been working on this with me and so far we have successfuly submitted to Trulia and Google. We are now focusing on adding Zillow and HotPads to the list.
Thank you for responding. This was not exactly the answer, I was looking for, but interesting. My listings do appear, submitted by a URL, and Postlets, but do not show up on my profile. I may look into the xml feed, but was more interested in figuring out why Trulia cannot sort postlets by agent or listings submitted by a URL.
Since you are close by, I may be interested in contacting you about your xml program you have developed that may work for our company site.
Have you worked on other RE sites?
Sample Postlet below!
I am not sure if this is answer you are seeking, but to send a feed from your personal website, you will need to create an XML File and place it somewhere on your web site. The formatting of the file varies from company to company, which means you will have to create a different XML file for Each (ie, zillow, trulia, google, etc). The specs for Trulia can be found at http://www.trulia.com/submit_listings/
The specs are very specific, and if you do not meet all the requirements, your listings will not be loaded. This is probably why you are not seeing yours. If you would like me to take a look at your XML Files, I would be happy to do so. I work in IT and am not far from you in Durham.
