I'm getting asked a lot about the value of blogging and SEO in general. Most folks on ActiveRain are trying to invest themselves into SEO practices and that's great! It does take time and there are so many different ways to implement organic SEO techniques into you blog, your website, your social media and more. It's a full time job just to keep up with the latest SEO news much less conduct actual real estate business.
But I commend those agents, stagers, inspector and the like that really put the effort in to create an online presence for themselves and their business. The frustrating part is sometimes the results.
You're not going to glean 80% of your business from your website if you just started doing SEO techniques yesterday. You're not going to get a ton of referrals from one month of blogging. You cannot expect to immediately be predominant on the first page of Google after a couple months of back link collection, blogging, and website optimization. It just cannot be done. If you want that instant exposure, pay per click will get you there fast and drain your wallet on the way up!
You cannot get to the top by buying back links, copying content to paste on your website or blog or by throwing out a market report once a month. SEO is not a race for the hare. It is a tortoise race. Slow... sometimes mind-numbingly slow. But just ask those that have been blogging for years; active in creating 1 or 2 back links a day, frequently updating their website with the latest listings, news, reports and information people actually want to read.
It takes time. Don't get frustrated, don't quit blogging after a month of no results. Find something someone would want to read about. Don't worry if you don't get a lot of subscribers, comments or feedback. If you can go public with your blog PEOPLE will see it. Title it after something someone would actually search for. Get that blog in front of as many consumers as you can, over and over and over...... and over!
Once back link from Zillow is not going to change your business model. 100 back links collected over 3 months will start to show to weight. 1000 back links from 100 different blogs, search engines, real estate sites, marketing websites and more will get you to the top. And keep you there until someone else works just a little harder than you.
Don't quit if blogging is not working right away for you. Someone will read it, someone will find it, and someone will call YOU to buy or sell their next house.
