A Home Inspector's ActiveRain Success Story
I first heard about ActiveRain two months ago after an invitation by a buddy, Steve Hall of Re/Max United in San Diego County. Why not check out ActiveRain? I knew I needed help with search engine optimization for my home inspection business- my website was only showing up on page 10 or so when doing a Google search using my preferred search terms.
I began attending ActiveRain University whenever possible and started to implement the strategies taught. Blogging was new to me, so I committed to the 31-day May challenge knowing that this would keep me motivated. I have thousands and thousands of photos saved from home inspections over the years, so I figured that's where I would start. I began telling some of the stories behind the photos. Maybe the stories would be educational or even entertaining.
Well, here we are on June 1st. I successfully met the May challenge: 31 blog posts in 31 days, and I am absolutely stunned with the results! I have amassed more than 30,000 ActiveRain points and my Google search ranking is now on page one for most of my search terms- many times in one of the top four positions on page one! My ActiveRain rank is now #42 in a big city like San Diego! I have gained many new friends in the ActiveRain "community". And the best part, I have already begun to see an increase in my home inspection business due to my improved online presence. It's beginning to rain! Thank you, ActiveRain!
