If I'm Giving Advice, Am I Still A Newbie?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with WeveMovedGifts.com

This newbie (if I am still considered one) has reached the one-month milestone on ActiveRain, and I thought it might be a good time to give some feedback for those who are even newer than me. We all need something to look forward to.

Since the middle of August, I have written nearly 40 blogs (some definitely better than others), accumulated nearly 10,000 points, made a number of friends and even sold some of my closing gifts. My website -- www.wevemovedgifts.com -- has moved up tremendously in Google, which prior to joining AR, was definitely not a twinkle in Google's virtual eyes. 

My blogs have hit Google almost immediately, and I'm glad to say many have landed on pages 2 and 3. (Just can't seem to get on numero uno.) I continue to get hits on blogs that were published nearly a month ago.

If you had said the word "Blog" to me 5 weeks ago, not only would I not have had a clue about what you were referring to, my eyes would have glazed over. And I have learned a lot about Search Engine Optimization and e-commerce.

I  have put in a lot of time on AR. And, as you know, it's not easy to squeeze any more into a day. Has it been worth it? I would have to say without hesitation, "Yes."

So, for those of you new to ActiveRain, keep plugging. There is something very right about this site and its ability to make a difference in your business.

Congrats.  Most people start giving advice after a few hours on active rain. :)

HI Diane

AR is the best thing I ever did to get myself found on-line

Shoot, I deleted my comment.........:(

what I was saying is:

Congrats!!

Can I make a suggestion. Instead of writing out the address of your site, try using the chains at the top of the blog post box to make a link out of the URL of your website. so instead of just writing wevemovedgifts.com if you do a great site for closing gifts your site gets linked back to.

You may be doing that in your other blogs, I just noticed in this one that you hadn't. That will help with the google juice. 

Feel free to call me if you have any questions. Sometimes it's not easy to interpret what I write....... :)

Thanks for the positive mention of AR. I'm glad to see you are getting benefit from it.
