Post Responses

When someone makes a Reply to one of my Topics or posts, will the site automatically inform me via e-mail that a response has been posted? This would be a very valuable benefit (although having the ability to turn the feature on and off would be nice)... as it would be easy to follow-up on discussions without having to sift through all the Topics.

Easy to look through all the topics now... as the feature just went live. I'm just thinking down the line, when the topics and reponses become very deep.

Great suggestion. It's definitely on our wishlist of things to do. (I'm personally getting tired of clicking through all the threads to find new content.) So yeah, no promises, but we'll do out best here.

In the meantime, all the threads are RSS enabled, so if you have a RSS reader setup, you can use that to see if there are new posts in the threads you're most active in.

Trying it with Google Reader, now. I am assuming that without any RSS button nearby, the 'thread' would be the root of this discussion we are having here...

http://www.zillow.com/forum/site/ViewThread.htm?tid=28

If that is correct, then I should see this very response pop up in Google Reader. Here it goes!

Didn't seem to work. What URL should I be using, Brian?

I use IE7 and it has a little RSS button up in the toolbar. The correct link should be:

http://www.zillow.com/forum/rss/ViewThreadAsRSS.htm?tid=28

I'll make sure we stick in an RSS button here somewhere on the page. =)

Thanks Brian, the URL that IE shows me after I click that button is just what Google Reader was looking for.

Still a great idea to have a little RSS button near the specific topic for easy subscription. Nice. =)

RSS is not bad. It does tend to take someone away from the Zillow site.

The Motley Fool (US or UK - UK site is free) has a feature where you see replies that are posted to something you wrote. A list is maintained showing all the replies. When you visit you can see if anyone has replied. You can then reply to their reply. You do not see the full thread, just the response to your specific post.

The feature lets you know if someone posted a comment that is likely specifically directed at your post.

It would be a great tool to be able to know how many people viewed their listing on Zillow. Posting viewings would greatly enhance the site.

gordo-
We actually do display how many times a home details page has been viewed. It's at the bottom of the home details page.

To read more about the feature, please read this post on Zillow Blog - http://www.zillowblog.com/how-many-people-are-checking-out-your-home/2007/02/
