Did anyone experience a major increase in traffic yesterday for any reason? Google update? Doesn't seem to be repeated searches or anything phenomenal with keywords but my traffic was up 100 visitors overnight and seems to be racing to the same number today.
Does a NAR designation necessarily qualify you Miriam Bernstein? I have sat in many one and two day classes and have designations. What do consumers want? To find and hire the most qualified. If they could drill it down to that - it will help us also get business we are most qualified to take on. When I search there is no rotation it is alphabetical. Consumers also don't necessarily immediately gravitate to top producers too but they want to make sure their agent is qualified. Right now they are all digging through needles in a haystack to find an agent.
SEO is way beyond simply installing a plugin. If your site has no quality unique content and does not have good links from other websites to yours, the plugin can't really help you. To do it right you need what I described above plus lots of links to property search results pages (cities, neighborhoods, etc). I can tell you it is possible to get great traffic from the plugin - I do so in 2 different markets - but it isn't easy or fast.
IF I were still using a PC , looking for a free anti-virus is something I wouldn't do. I would go with THE BEST product available. IMO that's Kaspersky. You can get it pretty cheap on Buy.com They run specials on it all the time.
When it comes to negotiations, I think it is best to keep the information close to the vest. Every transaction is different... I'm curious, does Redfin represent sellers? if so, this move could be detrimental to them....
