Free Search Engine Tool - Get Your Website On 15 Search Engines In 5 minutes!!! - 04/17/09 04:51 PM
Todays website technology is based around search engine presence. If you have it, you have website visitors. Without it, you don't. Your website may be the next big deal in the industry, but unless people know about it - its useless. But how do you get on all the search engines? Well, you don't. There are literally thousands of them out there, but the good news is that you only need to focus on a select few - which can syndicate your website out to many others. You've probably heard talk about something called SEO or Search Engine Optimization. In order (3 comments)

Website, Blog, or Social Networking...How To Choose - 04/02/09 05:34 PM
YOU DONT CHOOSE!!! You need ALL 3! Seriously. A website (whether personal or company based) is simply vital in today's market. In fact many agents have numerous websites. Our company has www.chaparralrealtygroup.com, www.meritcommercialgroup.com, www.southernoregonhomeinfo.com, www.southernoregonshortsales.com, and even more! Why, because websites are modern day yellow pages ads. In fact, just ask the phone directory companies just how much sales they've lost in the last three years. Chaparral Realty Group brought me on board to assist with their marketing procedures, office procedures, touch campaigns, database management, and more...but what they quickly discovered is that we get more bang for the buck via our websites.

Understand SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Before You Buy!! - 04/02/09 11:30 AM
SEO is an acronym for "search engine optimization" or "search engine optimizer." People who own and operate websites are always looking to get more visitors to their website. This is also called "traffic". The more visitors or traffic you have on your website, the more likely you are to make money from your website. Search engine optimization is the process of changing your website so that is is easier to find when someone searches the internet. Websites such as www.google.com, www.yahoo.com, www.lycos.com, www.msn.com, www.ask.com are just a few examples of popular search engines that people use. Just having a website isnt enough.

Did you hear? We've hit bottom...Are you ready? You better be... - 04/02/09 10:50 AM
I recently tuned in to a new story talking about officially hitting the "bottom" of the housing market. Due to the rising amount of foreclosures as well as short sales home prices have fallen and its no big surprise. Apparently analysts feel that this trend has bottomed out and will not continue to rise. Are you prepared for this news? What this means for many potential homeowners, is a rush to buy before prices begin to trend upward. This means buyers who have been watching this market and waiting to "strike" are now ready to move forward. This means the time (0 comments)
