The power that Active Rain continually achieves in the search engines just amazes me. Case in point. Periodically I will do a Google search for the keywords that I use to help gain me better Google rankings for my local market. It's kind of "a gimme" that's one of the main objectives from all of those here on the Rain.
Today I decide to just Google "Sharon and Greg Miller" to see where some of my Active Rain posts rank vs. our Sharonandgreg.com website. As the Google search results came up, I was only mildly surprised that there were three results pointing to AR/Localism that were ahead of our personal site.
What really surprised me was when I continued on through the next few pages of search results. On page four of the results at number thirty one, was my new AR friend, the king of the Metrowest MA. real estate market Bill Gassett.( There's some link love Bill). I swear the guy IS everywhere on the net.
All I did was comment on one of Bill's posts through his AR blog and the power of Active Rain got that picked up through the search engines. I did also see some others posts that I had commented on from the Rain farther down the pages. Just goes to show how Active Rain rocks the Google Juice.
Bill if you read this, I hope I am at least entitled to a referral if my prospects start calling you while looking for me.
