Great Tool for Estimating Search Volume

This may be old hat to most of you but not everyone is familiar with the Google keyword tool. In order to optimize your real estate website it helps to know what people are searching for and in what volumes.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know how many people are searching for the phrase ‘condos for sale in sarasota florida’ before you optimize a page for that phrase and go through the painstaking process of building links? Well, you can.

There are several traffic estimating tools out there but the Google keyword tool will work just fine in my opinion.

You can be much more productive in your SEO and link building efforts if you have a general idea of traffic volumes.

For example, you can focus your efforts on trying to rank for ‘condos for sale in sarasota florida’ which is searched for roughly 110 times a month or you can spend your time trying to rank for ‘sarasota condos’ which is searched nearly 7 times more at 720 monthly searches.

All you have to do is enter the phrase into the keyword tool and Google will spit out a variety of useful data. Continue reading this post

Advice From The World’s Foremost Authority On Blogging

Not! Does anyone want my advice on blogging? Ok, good, I’ll give you some advice: start by writing. It’s always best to start your blog by writing something.

Now you might ask—write about what?

And that would be a good question. Well, if you are a real estate agent you might want to write about real estate. That’s my first two pieces of advice—write, and write about real estate.

Seriously, if you are just starting or thinking about starting, there are a few things that might help. I will assume you’re an agent writing to consumers, and I will assume you’re not an experienced writer—otherwise you wouldn’t need my great advice. I write on several blogs, some related to the real estate industry and some related to consumers, but writing to consumers is the business end of blogging and it’s the main usefulness to you as an agent.

What are blogs good for?

They are good for informing consumers about your local market, about the real estate process in general, about market trends, about your services, about neighborhoods and listings and about how all this ties together.

You might want to develop a list of topics, such as: Continue reading this post

Things losers say: SEO doesn’t matter: How much traffic can you really get for ranking on the first page of Google for a prime term?

OK OK, only a retarded monkey would think SEO doesn’t matter. (Sorry to call out your mentally challenged peeps, Max).

But being on top of Google’s first page totally matters. In fact, I can prove it.

I write a lot about SEO, but what I don’t write about a lot are the results people get by using simple search engine optimization techniques. ROI on SEO is very easy to measure. You measure it in terms of positioning in Google for your prime terms and on the increase in traffic.

And, by virtue of those two simple things you WILL see more leads and if you are a good Realtor you will be able to convert those leads into dollars.
