Contribute to the Highest Ranking Real Estate Websites

By

Showing up and contributing to the top ranking real estate websites is a great way to grow your business and increase your web presence. 

 

Top ranking real estate sites as of 1/2014…

1. Zillow
2. Yahoo! Homes
3. Trulia
4. Realtor.com
5. Homes.com

 

Zillow, Trulia, & Homes.com all have a feature we'll call "advice alerts." When somebody lands on one of these sites, they are shopping around for information or for a new home. If they have a question, they can "ask a pro" by posting a question on the site. 

 

This is your opportunity to be an industry or community expert, answer their question, and hopefully create a new client.

 

Here are the steps to sign up to receive EMail Alerts for questions being asked on Zillow:

  1. Sign in to your Zillow account
  2. Click on “Advice
  3. You can choose “All Results” or any of the individual topics noted. (I like “All Results”)
  4. Fill in the “Location” for the area you want to receive notifications from. (example: Salem, OR)
  5. Click on “Get e-mail alerts
  6. Fill in the frequency that you want to receive the alerts.
  7. You’ll receive an email when somebody asks a question on Zillow in the area you chose.
  8. Answer the question.
  9. Benefit: You can connect with a new lead on Zillow. Also when you are contributing to the Zillow community it helps you show up in the “Find a Pro” section when somebody is looking for an agent.

 

This is a great way to get involved in the high ranking real estate websites and it doesn't cost you a penny.

Love Zillow and I think it is helping me a lot.  I am a premier agent on it and have had very good success with their programs.

Thanks for the comment, Michele. It seems reviews from agents were mixed for such a long time on Zillow. Hearing more and more positive comments about people getting good results. Glad it's working for you.

I've already gotten a few questions from either Zillow or Trulia (I think Trulia). Thanks for How-To for Zillow.

Thanks for reading, Travis.  I've found the questions come in on a regular basis, but nothing overwhelming. I'm sure this varies from area to area.  All the best to you!
