Johnson City TN Home Specialist: Active Rain and Google - Fantastic Partners

Active Rain and Google - Fantastic Partners

 

ACTIVE RAIN AND GOOGLE ARE FANTASTIC PARTNERS.   Almost everything I blog about goes to Google, which is

·         great for listings,

·         fun for people I mention, and

·         useful for organizations, events and businesses that need publicity.

 

HERE’S A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW ACTIVE RAIN AND GOOGLE GO TOGETHER.   

 

I had a call tonight from an old friend that led me to do another serendipity blog – about the friend he was going to refer to me, whom we discovered I’d already met at an open house many years ago  in Maryland and with whom I had become friends.   

 

Then I decided to add another one that I’d just told him about – the famous explorer, Barry Bishop, whose house I had listed because of another serendipity.   

 

I told Dan Webber about how my blogs go to Google, and just before I went to bed  - way past my bedtime - I checked and sure enough – within minutes of the two blogs, they’re both out there on Google, as well as on my personal  website, www.TNTriCitiesHomes.com.   


This feature of Active Rain is an important part of my listing presentation.

You can imagine how powerful Active Rain is when I’m advertising listings or neighborhoods.    People love it.   

 

Please contact me if you need help with any real estate need, or if you know someone else who does.    Even if it’s not in Johnson City TN, I can refer you to a pre-screened and special agent wherever.     Most of the agents I refer to use this same powerful tool in addition to our other marketing strategies.

Awesome, Mary.  The whole SEO and web presence thing was a mystery to me a year ago, but AR has helped me understand it, see the importance of it and achieve it.  It has been good for business.

Good morning, Mary....there are actually agents who continue to fight the fact that Internet marketing is a MUST.... it's difficult to understand....

Congratulations. It shows that Blogging works. Good luck in 2012.

Thanks for your comments, Mike, Barbara and Gita.   In addition to the two links I use as examples, Google also picked up this one, of course.   I'm sending the link to it today to someone who should list with me.

Wish me luck.

It's always so encouraging to see our blog posts get picked up so quickly in the search engines.

I love it, Morgan.   I use it for things other than just real estate.   For example, when a friend's daughter was in a play, I did a post advertising the play which I illustrated with a picture of the very talented daughter in costume, mentioning her name.   She enjoyed getting into Google as a young teenager.

Mary, one of the many advantages is the Google Juice when writing a post. Its amazing how quickly Google picks up on a post. Way to go!

Posted by Michael Setunsky, Your Commercial Real Estate Link to Northern VA over 6 years ago

Michael, I wish the public and other agents found my posts as quickly as Google does.   What's the secret?   I love to post but I wish more people read and commented.    Thanks for yours.   

Check out the new group, Serendipities.   Most of them are mine so far, but I'd much prefer to have others share theirs.   I can't be the only one these things happen to.

Mary, my posts when written correctly get indexed by Google withing 2-3 minutes. Congrats on the feature!

Mike, it's amazing, isn't it.   Thank you for letting me know it was a feature!   I hadn't realized.

Congratulations on the featured post. I too want to get mine over to Google. Thanks for the inspiration.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 6 years ago

Mary -- It really is amazing how an AR post can get to page one so quickly no doubt due to the phenomenal how-to instruction we receive here. It's definitely impressive and a skill that most agents do NOT have. Keeps us a cut above the rest in services we provide.

I realize that what Google shows is tailored to the area where the request is coming from, so it's not quite as dramatic for someone elsewhere (learned that at AR), but still much of our business is local and I can always feed specific links to buyers from elsewhere.   This gives me another way to stay in touch.

Posted by Mary Sheridan, Creative Marketing, Buyer Agency 423-943-7655 (Keller Willliams - 1033 Hamilton Place,Johnson City TN 37604) over 6 years ago

Barbara Altieri, because of my hobby of collecting serendipities, I just have to ask if you're related to a lady named "Nina Altieri" who was a client of mine many, many years ago.   I love small world stories and wouldn't be surprised if you were kin to her.   You wouldn't think that's a dumb question if you knew how often this kind of thing happens to me.   See "Serendipities" group for more - a few of the dozens.

That great news.  Thaks for sharing.  congrats on the feature post and the google ranking!

Posted by Joy Daniels (Joy Daniels Real Estate Group, Ltd.) over 6 years ago

I used this same example at a listing presentation today, as an example.   Then I told them another serendipity story that had involved a situation similar to theirs.

This is great information and very promising for the way business protocol is evolving in conjunction with technology; exciting times!
