Quassia Directory is live... who's on the top of the real estate list?

Marc Grossman! 

Looking at the Real Estate category on the Qassia Dircectory on tuesday morning... Who is on the top of the heap?  Looks like it is based on the money (like AR points) Q Number...[Q$3,205]

Number three on the real estate directory is Marc Grossman's Central Florida Real Estate Blog  Congrats Marc! 

I was so excited for Marc I did not notice numbers 4 and 5 on the list are both of my blogs.. for a few minutes anyway.

qassia The directory has been up since Sunday I believe.  Qassia is still a beta but it is or is shortly going to be a public beta, it has been by invite only.   To get to the directory when on Qassia click on the Qassia logo at the top of the page.

I have broken the links to the real estate sites in the directory below..

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Found 252 websites and 160 intel.

SITES

Hometown-Property provides local real estate portals - Provider of local real estate portals
http://www.hometown-property.com [Q$53,990]

Real Estate Tips - Tips on buying your 1st house or your 10th
http://www.realestatetips.110mb.com [Q$6,185]
Central Florida Real Estate Blog - Realtor serving the Greater Orlando area.
http://www.OrlandoHomes-4u.com/blogger [Q$3,205]

http://realtown.com/maureen/blog/ [Q$3,163]
ColumbusBestBlog.com - A site about the best of Columbus Ohio!
http://ColumbusBestBlog.com [Q$3,163]
MORE

The MORE is a link to more real estate sites in the directory, so there are only 252 sites.

The one piece of Qassia real estate "Intel" that I read this morning was titled "Top 8 Web 2.0 Real Estate Websites" Number one on the list?  ActiveRain!

I have only posted two pieces of "Intel" on Qassia. Like ActiveRain where most of my points are from inviting, I have most of my Qassia dollars from referring.*  I plan on using Qassia for totally local content, since the directory will be to my two blogs which are local content. That's the strategy now anyway...

Catching up on what Qassia is?  Qassia is social media.  Maybe it's a cross between Wikipedia, Squidoo and Mahalo?  Or maybe Qassia is totally different.... unique. 

One thing you can do on Qassia... republish content from another site YOU own.  It would show with this info in the side bar:

Intel Classification
This intel has been classified as Existing Authored Content, which means it was authored by the contributor, and first appeared on the contributor's blog or website

ActiveRain member Jo Soss has real estate Intel on the top of the real estate directory on Qassia this morning:

INTEL

Diary of a New Construction Site Agent [4.33] Mar 10, 2008 by Jo Soss | Bremerton Real Estate
So You Want To Be a ...1st Time Home Buyer? [3.81] Mar 10, 2008 by Jo Soss | Bremerton Real Estate

At least one of Jo's Qassia entries is "Existing Authored Content."

If ActiveRain Points were money?

What the heck is Qassia? Helpful hints...

Maureen, the update of the front page - I think they only do that about once a week or so. I changed some "allocations" so that a blog would show up higher on the list and well waiting for update. Have to go and check it out today.

Oh.... my allocation is messed up.  I think or I am messed up.  I found I had a bad link in one... my fault totally, misspelling my own name.  Then I reallocated and I wonder if I did it, then redid it because it does not show up the way it shows up on my page.  Yes I wish that did show up quicker...  thanks for the clarification.  I am still lost on Qassia...

There is a note about new features and it says there will be comments soon.  Qassia style. I can't wait to see what that means.

Comments - hmmmm I have received a couple on some of my intel and well they were pretty lame. I wrote a piece about my experience with a subject, all first hand knowledge and someone made a comment that I needed to check the facts because my intel was false. I laughed but was frustrated because I couldn't respond to them. This will be interesting. One of the "big" point guys there called me and we chatted for an hour or so - wow there is a whole other world out there in this "internet marketing". He posts intel all day long!

Tina My ColumbusBestBlog.com is on the top of the real estate list on Qassia now... not that I am going to get a lot of traffic until Qassia has more traffic.  I have only posted two pieces of Intel... kinda like AR... I am very good at inviting (most of my Qassia dollars are from inviting) but not that great at adding content...

I switched around the dollars on my three sites I have on Qassia so that I would be on top.... not gaming the system but if I have the Qassia dollars why not?  Again they are mostly from inviting... once more Intel is getting backlinks.

Reddirtgirl? I thought Georgia... I have never been to Utah... 

Be sure and read the TOS if you have not.  Someone left a comment on one of my posts about Qassia about the terms of service scaring her.

I think the update was at least 2 weeks. I heard they were trying to do it weekly but I think all of their "drama" a week ago stopped that. I moved up right under Maureen. I have put a lot of intel in because I am never one of the "pioneers" :) and no invites left to send! lol!!!I did what Maureen did also and changed my $$ allocations - I thought why not just have one in the "listing" but I still distribute credit/backlinks to all 3. I have seen traffic hit two of my sites from Qassia.

??? "and no invites left to send!"
 
You still get points... that's why I've blogged about Qassia three times on ActiveRain... and Twittered the link.  I had two people join yesterday from my referral link... Heather was one.
 
I will start adding Intel...  soon.
 
I should go see if I have traffic from Qassia.  
 
I just read their April Fools Joke...

NOW  I am not sure about Qassia ... I saw a disturbing ad the other day... on my "intel"

I contacted them & have NOT heard back... I know how hysterical some got here when AR added ads... people would fly off the handle over an ad that was about FSBO but it was trying to get us involved in their businesses not consumers.  I usually don't notice ads.... I did notice one ad on ActiveRain and did Contact ActiveRain on it and Bob Stewaart replied that they were aware of the content and were trying to contact the advertiser about the content of the ad.

Maureen

So I just added a wee bit more Intel at Quasia. Have you heard anything back from them on the ad on your page? Looking for some guidance here :-)

Reddirt - yes we just have a ton of it here. As soon as I get this batch of letters sent out I am going to start posting pictures of where I reside - red it is LOL

Thanks as always for all the help.  Cheers!

I just got the one email saying they have no control over the ads, which is BS.  I have not added intel since that, I only saw the ad once.  I am in wait and see mode.
