I don't think that the bee will be able to overcome this kind of practice, as I believe it relies on the the rightmove property reference no? Any one know different?
Yes property bee uses the reference number.. so if a property is relisted, property bee (currently) looses (or should that be mislays) the history.
I don't think its any thing new or to stop property bee, but rather it becomes more obvious if you use property bee.
I do have a plan to overcome this.. but as you can imagine this is not an easy task, and hence is many months away from being a usable feature.
Once 126.96.36.199 is out (it's going into beta tonight) I start on 188.8.131.52 which will (if the plan goes right) include some more of the foundations for this feature. Although 184.108.40.206 will not provide the functionality, the hope is that it will start to capture some of the information needed, so that when the feature to link adverts together becomes available, there's a "backlog" of data available for it to use.
