Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : Texas Top Ten~Keep On Blogging!

Texas Top Ten~Keep On Blogging!

You're probably wondering why I'm writing about the Texas Top Ten. There are several reasons beyond the obvious...(ssshhhh....ego). I'm there.

But please let me explain why. From the beginning I wanted to be in the top ten. It began with Localism.

If you weren't on the top ten list in your state your picture/bio didn't appear on Localism. All that has changed now so that goal was seemlingly futile....NOT.

Active Rain is beginning to be "found" by more and more consumers.

GOOGLE will tell you that in the Search Engine results the top ten is the CREAM OF THE CROP. Some 70% of consumers go no further than the first page (total ten) of GOOGLE. Now, that's pretty heavy stuff.

Points really DO matter here on the RAIN. You can be at the top of your own KEY SEARCH WITH GOOGLE while climbing the inside ranks of AR. GOOGLE LOVES FRESH CONTENT.

Keep your posts coming on a regular basis. You will gain strength within the search engines and eventually climb into the ranks of the Top Ten.

What you see below is what consumers see when they click on YOUR STATE.

INTRODUCING THE TEXAS TOP TEN~

Woo Hoo Deb, you are right in that list of smiling faces. I am so happy for you!!

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) almost 11 years ago

Hey.  You've got some great bloggers in Texas.  Yeah, yeah, I know, "everything in Texas is great".

I don't always identify folks who comment on my posts with their state because so few have their state in their signature.  A trick that many are missing. 

"GOOGLE LOVES FRESH CONTENT".  You've got that right.

Thanks for the mention. I must say, I love Texas. And many (like my relocation clients agree with me) I got here as fast as I could!

Gary, I've been there for quite some time. It's tough passing all you die-hards! Congrats to you too!I think Jason has it for the duration...don't you? Or, are you going after him? LOL.

Lenn, that is an absolutely astute idea...I need to check mine! Thanks.

Crystal, at some point I quit trying for points and then it just happened!

Loreena, I don't blame youl

Carole, thank you. They are and I'm proud to stand with them!

Holiday Hugs to all, Deb

Nice work Deb... for the post and hitting the top 10.  Merry christmas my friend!

Another term for "fresh content" and "regular" is "persistence and consistency." I've worked in many industries, and being persistent and consistent -- as well as Pleasant, Polite, Personable, Positive, and Professional -- has always resulted in business.

Hey Deb - I am number one in my county.  Just one county over which is where Grand Rapids really is I am 50.  But I live in Ottawa and spend a lot time in Ottawa also.  So I figure, why not stay where I am number one.  So now I don't worry about points, it just comes naturally because I am blogging--I still want to keep myself way out ahead!!

Deb,

You certainly do have some great bloggers in Texas.  I was thinking also how welcoming the Texas bloggers are here in the rain.....many just extend yourself to help others. 

Congrats on being in this great group of 10- yes results do matter.  Consistency, Quality, Fresh content is key.

Happy Holidays Deb....G/L on your house listing.  Hope an offer comes in to make your holiday sparkle.
