SAN DIEGO — The National Association of Realtors’ board of directors adopted a new policy Monday making it clear that real estate brokers can allow search engines like Google to index property listings displayed on their Web sites under data-sharing agreements with other brokers.

NAR’s board of directors approved several changes to the association’s Internet Data Exchange (IDX) policy as it wrapped up the group’s annual meeting in San Diego.
