GETTING BOGGED DOWN...And Getting Un-blogged!

GOOGLE JUICEGETTING BOGGED DOWN...And Getting Un-blogged!

I wanted to write this post to get it out there quickly for all of those bloggers who are stuck in a rut and can't seem to get out of it!

I have been a member here since 2007 and have blogged quite a bit--gotten good Google Juice for doing it too! I have been in a spot at times where I really wondered why I do this blogging thing--especially when nothing comes to mind to write about, aside from my love for my community and AR. I am startled by the impact in just a few short years that blogging has had on me and my business--I include "me" because deep down inside I have never had more fun nor have I been more richly rewarded for doing anything like I have with my blogging. Blogging has such value that I just want everybody to have the same successes that I have had and I continuously go back into the archives of my mind for ways to express it.

GOOGLE JUICE AND IT'S RAMIFICATIONS

My memory of what I thought when I first saw this "Google Juice" phrase in a post years ago created a shift in my consciousness about how to do business in this, the 21st century! First I thought: "what is that?"; then I thought: "How intriguing!"...and then I went looking for it. I looked all over the place for Google Juice, thinking that I would find it's real meaning if I looked hard enough.

I looked and looked and nowhere did I find the definition of Google Juice, until I looked right here on ActiveRain!...You see that is just the kind of thing that AR is the best at: ActiveRain is a place in the sun, where it rains content, good rich content, by the bucketful...all the time! 

I have discovered, over time, the best vehicles to sell real estate and am quite proud of the innovative  ways I have created new business. I have never been more proud, however, of the way blogging and the resulting attention has opened doors that would have been locked to me if I had not become a member here on ActiveRain and then joined Google +.

THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOMThis is where I have found the keys to the kingdom, so to speak! This is where I found that I am a respected human being, with all my writing flaws and all my hang-ups about real estate; this is the platform where I have learned, by leaps and bounds the way to get my word and my name out there!...and Google Juice is the phrase that comes to mind when I ask: "How did I get here from there?" Google Juice is the phrase that opened up my mind to "search engine optimization", which if you  don't know what that is yet--you NEED to find out..SEO is the way to the spotlight!

IT ALL ADDS UP

So, to those of you  who have the urge, join Google + now! Not tomorrow, not tonight but NOW. There is no better way (other than AR of course) to get the attention you want and need for your business. Then you can start putting out there in the internet "ether" what you know and what you do--how you do it and why you do it.

Nothing supplies the creative juices needed to blog like the stimulation from others conversations and others posts, so use those as much as you can--don't infringe on their work, just use it to "prime the pump" of your mind.

Un-blog your mind and get blogging!

Keep your content "pithy" too--that will give you good, rich and interesting content--and we all know that content is king in this blogging thing!

Carol: Good luck with your blogging and your real estate! You should do a post about being a newbie in both fileds--let everybody here know about it and sometimes that gets alot of attention!

Steve: I think you are right about that--Google Juice is a bi-product of AR and we can really all use it right now!

Ron: Good--you will not be unhappy here--in fact you can access so much information, if you spend the time, that you won't believe how it will help you in your business...and as you an already tell, members here are more than happy to help you out!

Sharon: You won't be sorry---just keep delving into Google+ because there are so many ways to get your name out there and build your business.

I am on Google +, but just barely.  I have made it one of my goals for the new year to go to Google+ and works on increasing my position.

Paddy: I did too--and I just could not get into FaceBook or Twitter--seemed so trite..Google+ is very much tied in to my needs and it works!

Evelyn: I have really focused on the Google+ accessability and it is so easy that I think you will find it gets you that extra attention you want to get and it is so much better than the others, especially with your business.

Good post.  You've talked me into it.  Google+ I mean.  I thought I had enough on my plate, but I'll expand to one more.  I'm just learning what Google juice is, but I want it to keep flowing.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Tom: Good--you won't be sorry! Google Juice is one of the most valuable "discoveries" I have made and as illusive as it is in reality, it is one  of the most sought after results for anyone who has a blog or a website. i wish you good luck as you continue your search...

I joined the same year as you and it seems like an age ago!  So glad I did though.  Now I'll see you on G+, and I think a lot of us are migrating over to there.

Georgina: I think there are alot of people who have used it in conjunction with AR and that is what I like about it--until I can get a real feel about the Google+ impact on my business I want to stay here on AR and publish here first...maybe in the future?

Bill: I am heading over there now to see--I am really curious about all the facets of this Google Place...Speaking of which, I joined Google Places 2-3 years ago and my name comes up anytime anyone searches for information about the Southampton office of Douglas Elliman and although that doesn't get me a lot of extra business--it does get my name out there like nothing else!

I've never known much about G+, even though I'm on it and occasionally post there. Is that really making a difference for your posts? Exposure?

I have not been very active on the blogging platform but Google+ was always a good place for me to add my posts--it added to my exposure.
