Increase Your Chances of Being Found on Google

 

Great ideaThis has been a week of technology learning from taking webinars to a local Tech Day at my local board to our regional Bar Camp in Nashville. With so many tips and ideas flying around I want to share one that an SEO Specialist, Ross Jones from Nashville shared today.

Increase Your Chances of Being Found on Google

 

It is about a citation in relation to SEO. I admit I had not heard this term and did not know it was one of those things that Google is now using to help do rankings. So I listened intently and want to tell you about its relevance to us in the real estate business as I understood it.

A citation is a mention on of your company's name, address and phone number on the internet. It could be on listing pages or directories or webpages. It is not necessary to have a link to your website for a citation to be recognized. The citation is viewed as a tool used in Google's algorithms to establish a company's presence and what geographical area a company conducts business. It could help in getting a small company placed in the business section on Google when a person is searching for a specific type of service or product in an area. 

Google is getting smarter and making some assumptions about what people are looking for in their searches. It is no longer thought that you have to be as exact as you used to be with what you type in the search bar. Google is doing some thinking for us according to the speaker.

So how does all of this affect us as individual real estate agents and companies? He said it is very important that we have our name, address and phone number consistent on all the places we can be found on the internet. Google is verifying legitimacy and this is one of the ways they are doing it. This is called NAP (name, address and phone number) and it makes us look like a real business and could actually be a key element in getting better placement. 

Most of us think of ourselves as a business and since we do, shouldn't we be telling Google that we are in the real estate business? Being consistent with our Name, Address and Phone number will help get us more attention. So how do you know if you are showing up on national sites? You can start with going to getlisted.org. See if your business name (you) can be found on the major search engines and if not it will give you a list of places to sign up and where you should be listed. This will be more and more important for our real estate businesses and another way to get the word out and market ourselves.
