Get ranked in google in under an hour using video

Services for Real Estate Pros with RealtyXL Marketing Inc.

Using video for SEO is a great way to get found quickly online.

You can shortcut a ton of link back activities with a couple of well titled videos that then link to the appropriate page on your website.

Don't be afraid to use redirects to make nice looking URL's that are easy to remember and shorter to link to in the youtube description box.

This video shows you how I get my listings ranked in the search engines in just minutes by using videos and links back to our sites.

I seriously suggest you give the free trial at Animoto a try, it's a really easy tool to use to make videos from pictures and stills, perfect to leverage your photo's, floor plans and other media resources into a video format quickly and cost effectively, which you can then use for SEO

Incredible assistance for agents who are tech savvy and willing to "learn some new skills"

You are correct the You Tube assist is very strong!

Here's one of Mine that is Localism for Humber Bay Shore

Thanks for the great tutorial Riel.  I've already got the Muvee program, so I'll have to give it a try.

I have a new listing that I'm going to photograph tomorrow.  I'm going to try doing video of the house as well.  Thanks for the information about Animoto.  I have not heard of that company before and will try it out.

This is by far the most useful post I've seen in AR. That was a very powerful example of what can be done with the internet's second largest search engine a.k.a. Youtube   Since reading your post I have been using Animoto and I am very pleased with the ease of use of their program. Great Post all around!
