Is it me or is the active rain blogs the quickest way to get yourself promoted on the web? Google seems to "crawl" active rain blogs every minute of the day. I can literally post a message about a listing or an open house and "Bam"; it's listed in Google within days. After I posted my new San Diego real estate website, it only took a few days before it was listed.
I'm finding the best and quickest way to get your name established on the web is through blogging. You can boost your website rankings this way as well. The more sites that list or "link" to your website, the better. If you promote yourself on several sites like Active Rain, Zillow, Vflyer, Craigslist and many others, always have a link to your website. I always try to slip a link in everywhere. This will be one of the quickest ways to get your real estate website listed in the search engines. The best part, it does not cost you a dime!
It still pays big dividends to have your site and yourself professionally marketed, but there are many free things you can do quickly to improve your SEO. (search engine optimization) of your site. Another way to boost your site rankings is an easy one. It's time. The longer you have been on the web with information rich content, the better your SEO will be. Keep updating your site, keep it fresh and keep blogging! I even slipped a link in this blog.
