Halifax/property-bee Toolbar

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

have you come across this strange modification of ads made by Halifax, on Property news? Like on these ones for ex:

http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...;fp=1&sort=

http://www.propertynews.com/brochure.php?r...9934710&i=0

Nearly every day you have the Subtitle changed: from 'Semi-Detached Bungalow' to '14' and one day later "from '14' to 'Semi-Detached Bungalow'...

This is reported on the Property-bee toolbar and makes a long list of useless information. Is it an attempt to discourage us to use the toolbar? Conspiracy thesis, I know, but I just wonder what the hell is that...

As I understand it Halifax predominantly submit their property listings to the rightmove website and so the content managements system they use for this submission process has probably been tweaked to allow the submission to also work for the propertynews.com website also. I think the matter you refer to is probably just a small bug within the system rather than anything more sinister. In any event you can personally control the information returned to you via the bee by clicking on the filter button on the property-bee toolbar and deselecting fields that you no longer wish to see. Like most people I am mostly only concerned with price and status - the other fields are helpful but these IMO are the two most important ones.

Right, thanks Paul!
