Excellent content ... highly recommended ... rave reviews ... I'm sure that what anyone watching this particular video should think.  As much as I have read and watched stuff about Search Engine Optimization, this presentation laid out the formula for successful blogging.

The new piece of information I learned about was to make posts timeless.  I often write about market reports which are specific time periods and get stale.  What I should be writing about is specific sub-division and neighborhoods, the timeless post, and then linking back to that post from the market reports and maybe the other way around.

Thanks for taking time to put this together!!!

Hi Bob!  Hope you're doing well!  Hey, I just wanted to share that you totally movitated me to go back to some of the basics that I had been eliminating in hyperlocal posts.  I KNOW they work and have had many paychecks from my posts on AR and am SO grateful for that!  I don't have a clue why I didn't keep doing what I was doing over and over again.  :-)  Here's how you motivated me:  Charlotte Area Luxury Communities | Deerfield Creek.

Big hugs and many thanks for setting me straight--again!

Good morning Bob. You have did a great job shinning a light on areas missed in SEO of our posts. I rarely watch SEo videos as they cover the same thing but yours kept me here the full hour and actually left me wanting more. Nice job!

Bob, the hour I set aside to watch this video (and take notes on EverNote) was very well spent. I had been doing quarterly condo market reports with info, photos and map...but I didn't use video, so now that's on my list. Love the checklist that sums everything up at the end! :)

Mr. Google used to love me.  Now (since Penguin has come out) he seems to hate me.

So here I am back at the ranch.

It's time to go over the basics again.
