Without a doubt, Active Rain has built an amazing community and resource for the real estate industry. One of the draws has been the interaction and the POINTS. C’mon, you know you love the points, right?

I’m pretty sure I wrote my first Active Rain blog post in 2007. Surely, it was an amazing piece of work. After all, every beginning blogger knows theiDizzle is tha' Shizzler new post is something the whole world has been dying to read, right?

As a newbie blogger on Active Rain, I got comments, interaction and validity for my awesome work. Had I been on my own blog with no audience and with no traffic, that masterpiece may have been missed by the masses!

While points are a draw for some people, let’s face it, the “google juice” is far more important. In fact, points don’t pay the bills, leads do.



Check Out Dizzle:

Like Active Rain, Dizzle has a points system for using the site. Like Active Rain, the points are not necessarily the icing on the cake.

I’m not an SEO expert, but I have checked out Dizzle. Here are a few reasons why YOU should, too.

Increase web site exposure:
Get more Likes
Get more Links
Get more +1s
Increase your social graph

See the video below for an example of what some people are saying about your “social graph.” You might be familiar with some of the people in the video…

Why would you want to increase links, likes, and +1s for your site? Well, that’s probably a whole new blog post waiting to happen. If you write your own blog or if you blog primarily on Active Rain, you probably want your content to be found. Add a link to Dizzle, request a like or a +1 from the real estate community and see what happens.

I’ve written a few blog posts and built a few web pages recently where I asked for some Dizzle love. Without a doubt, I have seen an increase in traffic from some of that interaction.

if you want to learn a little more, check out this great Dizzle blog post. After that, head over to Dizzle yourself and start getting your content and your AR posts more love.
