3 Online Marketing Tips for Real Estate Professionals

1. Invest now! It may be counter intuitive but spend money now on SEO while everyone else is cutting back on online promotion. When the market recovers you'll be far ahead of your competition.

2. Think of social media marketing as a nice dinner party. Don't just talk about yourself. Connect, engage and bring something to the table.

3. Show don't tell. Don't be just another voice screaming I'm the best realtor, I have great properties, this is a great neighborhood. Show don't tell! Photos, video & testimonials will help you stand out in the crowd.

Video SEO |Secret Weapon for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

Video SEO |Secret Weapon for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

Video Search Engine Optimization is the most effective way for small and medium sized businesses to dominate local Google keyword searches, drive quality local traffic to a website and increase conversions from prospective clients.

Search engines place a greater value on video results than text because of the authority given to sites such as YouTube. In my experience, it takes less than two weeks for a video to make its way to the first page of Google search results for local searches vs. blogging or text based organic SEO, which can take up to six months for the same results.

Online video can level the playing field for the small business, by providing a reasonably priced and appealing platform to illustrate points of differentiation from bigger competitors. From an SEO standpoint, it is the ability to easily create and distribute online video that will drive value for search optimization, user engagement, and eventually faster conversions.

Get Your Website Rankings Up with 4 Important SEO Tips

1. Incoming Links- Link building is the SEO trump card for the foreseeable future. It is the most important influence on a website’s search rankings. When external sites link to a website, it indicates to the search engines that the site has useful information. Links must come from trusted sites with authority. Link building takes time and is done on a monthly basis. It takes a few months to see results.

2. Updated Content- Search engines look for fresh content and the more frequently you update your content the more frequently your site is indexed by the search engines. Adding a sub-domain blog to an existing site or building your website on a blogging platform are the best ways to achieve dynamic content.

3. Dynamic Websites- Search engines favor interactive websites that include content such as images, forms and video.

4. Meta Data- Search engines use keywords and site descriptions to determine what your website is all about. In depth keyword research is essential in establishing what keywords generate the most traffic. Using location specific keywords will help rank your site in local search results.

Search Engine Optimization for Jewelers and Other Businesses

Organic Search Engine Optimization |

Strategy and Creativity Beat Big Ad Budgets Every Time| SEO for Jewelers

To have success online, customers must be able to find your website. This means ranking on the first page of Google, Yahoo and MSN search results for relevant keywords. The higher up a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive.

Costly paid online advertising offers immediate results but as soon as you stop paying, your website drops off the search rankings, leaving nothing to show for money spent. The most effective way to achieve long lasting search rankings is organic search engine optimization.

Organic SEO is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a website from search engines including Google, Yahoo and MSN search via organic or algorithmic search results.

The job of a search engine is to return relevant results. They must distinguish between authority sites with good information and inappropriate or spam sites. There are many factors taken into consideration by search engines when determining the relevancy and authority of a website.
