Google Doesn’t Play Fair – And You Don’t Have To Either
If you have been to my workshops before, you have probably heard me say “Google owns the world and we just happen to live in it.”  That is very true with SEO.  They set the rules and they play favorites to their programs.  If you are not using Google+ then you are missing out on one the easiest ways to get ranked higher.

  • Take your free Google+ account and enhance it.  Here is the one I have developed for my training and social media design business.
  • Post content about your relevant topics and include the keywords in the title and body of the post.  Ex. subdivisions, niche topics, listings, your name, etc.  Lots of different options.  You choose.
  • That’s it!  Pretty simple and you will start to see immediate results.  Need proof?  Check out the example of increased SEO under Google+ on this link.   The update that I did for Susan in the example showed in less than 10 SECONDS!
  • Do you have a problem of your listings not showing up first in the search results?  Create a blog post about your new listing, publish it, add it to Google+, THEN add the listing to MLS and push it out.  Go back and add the MLS ID number to your Blog and Google+ post.  Extra work but you should like the results!

Google+ also has other treasure troves.  Such as Google+ Stories and Movies.  You can create marketing pieces for your listings, neighborhoods, etc. in a matter of minutes.  Google provides the blueprint to better SEO, you just have to follow it.  Need some help?  Attend my sessions and/or have my team help build the online platforms you need.

Another Reason Why It Is Good To Live In North Texas
There are lots of reasons to live in North Texas.  Here is another NEW one.  1 on 1 training with my team of designers!  I travel and train all over Texas, the US and Canada.  Now, my site designers are willing to set down with North Texas area agents for hands-on, 90 minute sessions.  These private 1 on 1 sessions are designed to get you moving with marketing.  They will train you (or your assistant) how to effectively blog, Facebook with a purpose, all other social media/online marketing elements and much more.

When we build websites/social media platforms for agents, we always say that “we will build the car and the agent has to drive the car.”  These sessions will help you drive that car better!  Don’t live in North Texas?  No worries, now you have a reason (and a business write-off) to visit!  For details, please email me from and mention 1 on 1 sessions.
