Online Marketing is a lot like playing pinball

Real Estate Agent with Pearl Real Estate Marketing

We all know that after you do the basics of building a quality site and implementing a good SEO strategy, the next things needed are quality links.

I don't know what made me think of this but I find my online marketing strategy to be a lot like pinball. Here is my description:

1) The steel ball is a blog post, article or press release.
2) The spring loaded launcher is used to to launch the ball. These are the actual blogs, article directories, and press organizations promoting your news to online publishers: including digg, delicious and etc.
3) You score points by keeping the ball bouncing around.

Everytime you get credit for an additional link in Google, these are points. The more of the link references you have the more your ball will bounce around between the bumpers.

The more content you publish and the more references you create the higher your placement in the search engine. I am still kind of new at this social media stuff. I have learned that I need to create daily posts and news for Huntsville Alabama real estate to maintain enhance lmy position.

If you never launch the ball you will never gain search engine position.

I just want to keep trying to keep the ball up and going.  The more it gets points with consumers and potential clients the more I win and the more consumers win.

How true.  The more times you pull the lever and keep the ball moving, the better your ratings in google.  I can't tell you how much business I've recieved since I started blogging.

I am confused over the seo stuff. I cannot seem to get my site up the ladder. I guess I am doing something wrong.

It's happening slowly but even I'm starting to see my Internet presence grow.  It's always interesting to see how people find me online.
