Zoopla is once again proving it’s ahead of the game with its latest campaign of app promotion ads in Google organic and paid results as featured in the Google blog.
Zoopla is leading the way in the property industry once again with a new feature called ‘deep linking’ that allows mobile users to transition from Google search results directly into their Zoopla app.
It means that when a user sees one of the new Zoopla ads or organic results in Google search results pages, clicking on the ad will instantly open their Zoopla app and seamlessly take them to the right place.
Once inside the app, users signed into their MyZoopla account can take advantage of all the features while on the move.
These include being able to search for property based on a user’s current location, finding property within a desired commute time, saving favourite properties, the ability to share property searches and being able to contact estate agents instantly with the click of a button.
The feature is only available on Android devices and users will need to have the free Zoopla app installed. They will also need to be signed into a Google account in their browser.
We have just rolled out two great new features on Zoopla.co.uk. They’re designed to make your search for property for sale or to rent even easier and provide you with up to date information on the property market. Ultimately, they exist to help you make the best possible property related decisions.
Sort by: ‘Most Reduced’ or ‘Most Popular’
When you search property to buy or property to rent on Zoopla.co.uk you can now sort your results by ‘Most Reduced’ or ‘Most Popular’. You’ll find these clever little tools at the top of the search results, right next to our existing sort features: Highest Price, Lowest Price and Oldest Listings – see the images with the highlights below.
Sort by: ‘Most Reduced’
Sort by: ‘Most Popular’
The other feature, the first of its kind in the UK, is a powerful listings history information box. We’ve done all the hard work and in this box you’ll find the history of any property for sale or to rent which includes: when the property was first listed on Zoopla, asking/rental price changes, the number of page views the property has received and last sale date where applicable and where we know it. This clever little box can be found on the right hand side of the property details page – see the image below.

Within this box (see image below) a new field called ‘Keywords’ appears just below ‘Price’. It looks like this (take a look at the image below):
