ActiveBlogs - Link Love and SEO

By
Education & Training with Director of Education & Industry Outreach at eXp Realty & RE Tech Campus

Many AR members have been creating and setting up their outside ActiveBlogs on ActiveRain.  I've had the pleasure of helping some, but also know that there have been a ton of these created that I and others have missed.  Driving visitors and traffic to your new Blogs is essential in getting them Active and all over the search engines.  Here's a great chance and way to do that.

Please take a moment to visit these members Blogs, see what they've done, and drive them some SEO love.  It would be great if you could leave them a comment too.  I'm sure they will all do the same for you.

There's a wide variety of styles and Blog types from our various Industry Professionals, everything from REALTORS®, Stagers, Lenders etc.  I'd love to have some examples from every AR Category below.

[ Real Estate Agents ] [ Loan Officers ] [ Mortgage Companies ] [ Inspectors ] [ Appraisers ][ Title Companies ] [ Escrow Companies ] [ Real Estate Attorneys ] [ Real Estate Auctioneers ][ Virtual Assistants ] [ Home Stagers ] [ Real Estate - Others ] [ Account Execs ] [ Mortgage Processors ][ Real Estate Brokerages ] [ Builder-Contractors ] [ Real Estate Medias ] [ Real Estate Trainers ] [ Notaries ][ Commercial Real Estate Agents ] [ Environmental Services ] [ Commercial Lenders ] [ Business Brokers ][ Property Managers ] [ Real Estate Sales People ] [ Architectural Designs ] [ Financial Planners ][ Insurance Broker or Agents ]

Be sure to take a second and leave us a link to YOUR ActiveBlog in the comments so we can add you to this list.  There are probably 700 - 1000 of them out there right now, and soon there will be thousands more.  Let us know about yours, or add a link here when you get one setup, I'll try and help pay it forward.

We're also looking for some ActiveBlog examples to feature on our AR landing page.  This is for when other members are interested in finding out more about creating their ActiveBlogs and want to see what you have done with yours.  If you're interested in being on that page, again, just leave your link below.

Disclaimer: This post is exempt from the AR terms of service and community guidelines regarding spam or hijacking by leaving your links in the comments of another members Blog post.  I'm soliciting them.  :-)

"Overwhelmed" is the word that comes to mind. Dropping down the rabbit also comes to mind. There are so many links--and GREATones, at that--that I am turning into a packrat of links/blogs/ and other assorted helps. Just call me Alice (in Wonderland).

Am about to make changes based on today's great guidance on Categories and Topics but I already love having an OB.  And I'd welcome any constructive criticism others offer - AR staff & members are great guides!

Great post! My outside blog www.walktombta.com will be focusing on real estate that is walking distance to the T (the subway system in Boston). I decided to make my blog about this becuase my customers constantly ask them to find listings that are walking distance to the T.
