Swine Flu! Has it been overplayed yet? After spending a week feeling like its possible that I might have such a horrible illness, I found myself with more "office time" than I expected or wanted. Frankly, I have spent way too much time on a keyboard and not enough time on a surf board. The weather is outstanding and I am stuck inside fighting off the funk. So, I decided to work this on-line presence hypothesis.
You see I was beginning to get discouraged. I thought that I had put together some pretty good posts (for a newbie) on relevant subjects. I saw my points and ranking increase, but did not see much in the way of response or conversation. While I was looking at my zero counts for replies I decided to do a check-up search on my primary website. Now to be clear, I have started out focused on increasing my search ranking in a specific market - Oviedo, FL. I almost fell out of my chair when I saw the results. (The seem to fluctuate - but page 1 is better than page 10) It does indeed WORK! And it works well!
I am not ready to write my Active Rain success story just yet. I need to duplicate those results for my surrounding areas and especially the larger Central Florida market. For now its sprinkling, there is much more work to be done to bring the deluge. It's nice to know that the ROI is a proven thing. Like anything good in life - what you put into it is what you will get back. Thanks again to Russel Ray out of San Diego for introducing me to this opportunity.
