Making your land searchable is a great way to draw attention to your home or establishment. To make your land appear in the Places tab in Search:


  1. Right-click on your parcel's terrain and select About Land.
  2. Choose the Options tab in the About Land window.
  3. Check Show Place in Search (L$30/week).
  4. Choose a category from the dropdown list that most accurately describes your land.

KBwarning.png Warning: Parcels need to be at least 128 square meters in order to appear in All search or Places search. Do not spend L$30 to list parcels less than 128 square meters.



Land listings and maturity settings

Your listing appears in Search, based on the maturity setting of your land and the maturity setting of those using the Search tool. For example, someone who has set their own maturity setting to PG does not see search results for Mature or Adult listings. A Resident who has their maturity preference set as Adult, but only selects PG in the Search tool, only sees PG search results.


When listing your parcel in search, use keywords in your parcel description in About Land that match your parcel maturity setting. PG or Mature parcels with adult keywords in the About Land description do not show in Search results, regardless of the maturity setting of the person searching.
