“GOOGLE JUICE” Sharing Tammy Emineth’s advice about getting more recognition ... Prospects may turn into Clients but they have to find us first! Tammy suggests other actions besides AR for getting going on a new site or "reviving" an existng one. Thanks Tammy for your usual and helpful detailed information! Have a happy day - Lynn
So you have a new website? Or perhaps your old one needs some new life breathed into it. Whatever the case may be you have to get your website out there and instead of submitting to search engines which may or may not work as we discussed in the search engine submission blog a while back, nothing beats having your website found instead of shoving it in Google's face.
Google puts more weight on finding your site elsewhere and then hopping over to read it than just a simple website submission. Better yet, is when Google finds your site on a highly indexed or high page ranked site. While sites such as ActiveRain can provide that, a couple of other sites will create a better indexing and possibly faster as well.
These sites are goarticles.com and eZinearticles.com. You may have heard of these before and you may have even read some of the articles from them and not have known it. There are articles and information on just about everything on these two websites. While you cannot put links within the body text itself you can put a link in the resource box. This link should be to the site you are wanting to be indexed. This is not to be spammy, just a simple link such as: To learn more about ….. contact me for all homes in Clarksville TN and more. Make sure you are linking to your site using a valuable key phrase. This one little link can be the difference of being found online and not. You will need to set up an account and follow by their rules. They are strict with how many keywords per article and misspellings - which is actually a good thing.
We recently set up a new site and since they were brand new with a new, unknown domain, you literally could not find them online. I did a basic search for site: “minotcommercial.com” to see if Google had found them yet and it hadn’t. I simply wrote two articles about real estate, one for each of these two article websites and included the link in the bottom resource box and voila! Within 48 hours the articles were approved and the site is now being indexed.
So what do you write about? Same thing you would write about on here. Get creative and write about buying a home, steps to selling, how to stage, what the market is doing, etc.. But remember to put a link in that resource box back to the site you’re wanting indexed. It will be a big boost for your business and your site.
