The global reach of RealBird - 09/30/09 05:29 PM
I reviewed some of our Clicky web analytics reports this morning and I thought that I share some info with our readers through the heat map below. The map shows the referring countries where visitors came from, in the last 356 days. It is an aggregated analytics report: collecting information on all of the RealBird single property websites and widgets.
Darker colors mean higher traffic count. I was pleasantly surprised that there are only a handful number of countries and territories (yellow color) with no referral traffic. It clearly shows the global reach of RealBird through syndication, SEO and property (9 comments)

Your customers may be searching for a listing with Google Search, or go to one of the classified portals like Craigslist, Zillow, Trulia, etc. or, “hang out” and learn about home buying or selling on their favorite social networking (10 comments)
iPod contest rules changed - better for you, "worse" for us. But we like it anyways - 09/05/09 03:17 PM
As many of our regular readers know, we started another iPod Touch sweepstakes on Aug 14. The original rule was that we draw an iPod Touch among our RealBird Facebook Page fans, once the number of fans reach 1,000. Ambitious it was, slow it became. While we have more and more fans every day, based on the current trend it would take a long time before a lucky winner can walk away with the iPod. So we decided to change the rules.
