As a Web site designer and Web marketing consultant, sometimes I feel as though my primary role is to nag, nag, nag and then nag some more. So I love to see that my clients are paying attention to and using my advice.
Recently one of my nagging themes has been about blogging often. I've been encouraging Amelia Island REALTOR® Jim Williams to blog on his and his wife's Point2 site. Their site itself is young and has been bouncing around in Google, everywhere from page 1 to page 7. Apparently this pattern is common now with new sites.
Needless to say, I am gratified that Jim has worked up the courage to take the blogging plunge. One of his first posts on their Point2 Amelia Island real estate blog was about Kathy getting her foreclosure specialist certification. Earlier today, I copied that article, edited it a little, and posted it in their Active Rain blog. And look at the results! I see that we need to tweak their title tag, but this is great for a newbie effort. Interestingly, their site also jumped from page 6-7 to page 3 for "Amelia Island real estate" today. I don't know whether than can be directly attributed to Jim's blogging, but I'm sure his efforts didn't hurt.
