Have you answered consumer's real estate questions on ActiveRain? Trulia? Zillow?
I am Re-Blogging Niki's post. I remember when the Questions & Answers section (link in Niki's post) was introduced. I believe I have probably answered less than one half dozen questions and two of those I answered this morning AFTER reading Niki's post a couple of times.
Only 11 questions have been asked in Ohio since January 1, 2011, on ActiveRain. I thought the Questions & Answers section was gone... or buried. The ActiveRain Questions & Answers show up well in Google for queries like "Real Estate Questions" or I searched for "Ohio Real Estate Questions" not signed into Google and ActiveRain Real Estate Questions was in the top slot, page one...
How well does ActiveRain show up for Real Esate Questions n Google for your state?
To answer one of Niki's questions, I might be more active on questions if there was a place for a link. I like that on Trulia. I use my ActiveRain content (on my Outside blogs now) for the link. Questions about schools. I have a link for that. Questions about safety or crime? I have a link for that.
The criticism I remember from the beginning is member's answering questions across state lines. That should be OK on some. Not so great on other questions.
Legal questions? And that seems to be what so many questions are about. I don't have a link for that...
Recognize Tni? Tni LeBlanc. Tni is one of 101 answers to the Trulia Voices Question at the top of my post. Tni is an attorney. Tni is in California. Tni's answered the question:
" you should seek the opinion of an attorney."
There is an Ohio attorney answering questions on the ActiveRain Questions & Answers section now: Daryle C. Tibbs Esq.
Consumers are asking questions, but there are very few real estate professionals answering the questions (since it is hard to find the section).
Has anyone answered consumer questions on ActiveRain? Why or why not? Did you know this area existed? Would you be more active if we improved our questions area? Anyone generate a lead by answering questions on ActiveRain, Trulia or Zillow or another site?
