 Why do I post to (Localism) by: Robert Swetz

 Around the last year posting to Activerain approximately 45% of my posts are directed towards (Localism). Why?

 Because 90 percent of my (Leads) come from posting about communities and areas of interest where I live. I have been sharing information and photographs with people around the world about Las Vegas Nevada. And they have left many comments, emails and more thanking me and having an interest with coming to visit a place they have never seen before.

 Except for movies, magazines, friends & family, Internet & (Vegas Bob).

 So if your a (Newbie) around the Activerain network and you are interested in getting some serious action around here and creating serious (google juice), may I suggest taking around 40-50 percent of your posts and directing them to (Localism) with pics if you can.

 Just a little advice from a man who knows!

 Vegas Bob

 PS - And don't be surprised if I pop into your City or Town some day, take a bunch of photographs and post several stories about your communities!

Hi Bob

I agree. Being a newer blogger ( 2 months) I have been putting everything on localism. Interesting that you only post some of your blogs on it - I figure if someone wants a specific area let them see multiple blogs I have written so they associate me as the expert in the area.

Have a great Holiday Season & Happy New Year!!!

Absolutely Bob, when you post to Localism you get a double dose of Google exposure.

Personally, I love posting to Localism due to the benefits. But I do not like writing the localism posts because I feel like they are too generic and do not express any opinion about anything. But I guess if they give me business, I should quite complaining, right?

Hey Vegas Bob...do you know how to actually post your profile picture on Localism? It seems like they would use your active rain pic but they don't. I would be more excited about Localism if I could put my picture on it. Do you sponsor a community as well? Tiffany

Hello Tiffany and I am pretty sure you load your profile pic to Localism like you do for your profile page. I need to put a different profile photo on my Localism page also and I will get back to you on this.

And yes I sponsor 6 communities in and around Las Vegas Nevada!

VB ;o)

I'm so far off the beaten path I don't know if you could find me Robert.  But if you are ever near lake Sinclair (an hour and half southeast of Atlanta) you better stop in and say hi.
