A great way to get your new website indexed with major search engines is to write a post and link to it from Activerain.  The traffic each Activerain post recieves is enought to get Google's attention.  So what's the point? It can take up to 3 weeks for your site to show up on google otherwise.

This is extremely important when you're doing a website for an individual property because your clients will expect their home to be searchable within 24 hrs.  Below is a flyer that contains a link to a listing's individual property website.  The domain was purchased 30 minutes ago, if you want to test it out, google the domain or the title "Eastside Turn Key Home".  If you're one of the very first readers of this post, google the name in a few hrs, as it takes at least an hr or so to be indexed.

Bob - to add a link copy the url ( highlight the text you want to make a link, then click the chain / link icon above your blog post.  There's a spot to paste your url into.  That will create a link to your domain name.

I am a little slow here so bear with me. So I write a blog on my website and then link it by copying and pasting one of the logos from the "link to AR" button on AR? Or vice versa?
