More on SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

by Charlee Jacobs

This article was contributed by Dan Hatfield- ProLeads Manager. Thanks Dan!

There are many things you can do to/with your site to help it be indexed and placed higher by search engines. Here are two of the more popular ones:
1) Add additional content to your website - start with your main page, list the towns & areas you work in, the services you provide, give a little background about you and your team.  Mention some current things that you are involved in in your area if you are active in your community.
Create additional Resource Pages that give helpful and relevant information for your area.  It can range from a collection of schools and places to dine in your area (or categorized by each city) or could be information to help people get the most value for their home (ex: 10 Things to Do to Make Your Home More Appealing).  The more pages you have of useful information, the more people in your area will use you as a resource.  If people start using you as a resource the search engines will definitely take notice.  Be sure to make some links on the main page of your main site to articles you've written (or had someone else write for you) that you think people might be interested in.  Change these links from time to time with new content.
Find reputable companies and websites that will link to your main site.  Many sites will do it if you ask them nicely in a personalized email (no canned letters, website admins hate those).

How do I get my site to the top of the search engines?

by Charlee Jacobs

One of the most frequent questions I'm asked is, " how do I get my website to the top of the Search Engines? " There is no simple answer to this question, but it is not as hard as it may seem. 

On the Internet, content is King, the more content, relevant to what buyers and sellers are looking for, the better.  With Real Pro Systems integrated Blog you can write articles or posts that will help you come up on the top of the search engines. One key is to sprinkled the article with specific words or phrases. And please, feel free to interject your personality. Example:
This morning while I was dropping off my son at South Eugene High School, I began to reflect on how lucky we are to live Eugene, OR, a community that supports their schools. Last week, in the Eugene Weekly, I was reading about the number of school programs that are being eliminated from pubic school systems around the country. The number risen dramatically in the past five years. I feel exceptionally fortunate to live in Lane County, where many of our school districts still have a full schedule of sports orts and other after school activities for our children to enjoy. The education of our children is a priceless investment that will continue to pay dividends for years to come.
Notice the sprinkling of the bolded words. This is so "spiders" will see that my Blog post is relevant to someone searching for South Eugene High School, Eugene, OR, Eugene Weekly, and Lane County. Over time my post will be indexed and pulled to the top of search engines.

Star Power -Phoenix

by Charlee Jacobs

We just got back from a great,  Star Power event in Phoenix, Arizona. Lucky for us the weather wasn't too terribly hot and humid, thought it had its moments.

It was so amazing to see so many agents full of enthusiasm at the conference. It is nice to see everyone sharing information which each other and brainstorming for new approaches to drive new business in today's down trending/ slower markets that many areas of the country are experiencing.

Our booth was present among other venders with today's best solutions to help Real Estate  professionals take their business to the next level.  Real Pro Systems stealth sites  and automated email follow up systems always stand out as the leading approach to capturing buyers and sellers that are not ready to work with an agent.

We had a wonderful client reception that was a lot of fun. All of us enjoy meeting our clients in person and hearing about their successes.
