I do an annual SEO Update each year. I have been doing these for many years now.
There is always something more to do, to learn, to apply, to work on…
Each year, Google and the other search engines adjust their algorithms, and new technology arrives on the scene.
If you can't make it to the webinar, register for it anyways. As long as the recording works, and everything is clear… we will send it out to those who registered.
Of course, try to be there, because I will answer your questions to the best of my ability.
There is no such thing as a shiny object that will change your business overnight. There is only work, and more work… smart work… and delegating.
SEO is the long game… just like most marketing tactics and mediums these days.
However, I can tell you that a lead you get from organic search is a way better and more qualified lead you will get from an ad or cold calling.
Why? Because with SEO, the searcher is searching for something… if they click on your website out of the ten options they have on page one on Google SERPS, and then they read about you, maybe you answered a question they had….
they got to know you, like you, and trust you. And that is a person ready to do business with you.
We just got a million dollar equestrian listing because the owner of the property googled the terms we rank for, that we optimized for, that we did SEO for… and she called us, she did not even go to our website. She used the phone and called us and said she wanted Nestor to sell her horse property. We got this listing from organic traffic. This is what you want in any business you are in.

If you are a real estate agent or broker you understand the power is in the listing. He or she who owns the listing lasts in this business.
With all new technology there are positives and negatives.
Technology helps us do more tasks however, sometimes we are either encouraged to use short cuts and sometimes we are just plain lazy and look for ways to get done faster and with less effort.
This happens with syndicating your listings on the internet.
What started out as a really time saving idea of having our listing syndicated to all the different portals on the internet but ended up losing sight of owning our listings online.

Website & SEO Creation | Case Study Update
When you are building your website you want to make sure your site gets indexed as soon as possible.
This gives you time to write your content and set up your posts and pages, optimized with SEO best practices.
If you set up your new website with the correct pages, menu, SEO all your images, get the right keywords down… you should see yourself on page 4 or page 5 of the SERPS within a few days if not sooner. This is a good signal that you are following good SEO best practices.
From there you start to refine your keyword content and narrow in on your target market.
We have been using Rhonda's website that I built as a case study for SEO best practices.
I started Rhonda's website the last week of December in 2015. By January 16th I thought to check her SERPS. It was not my intention to have the site ranking or indexed. It was right around this time there was a subtle Google algorithm shift which really helped agents, small business owners, and marketers to rise in the search engines against some big box competitors. If you were in my webinar: “SEO is Back with a Vengeance”, you will know what I am talking about.
To my surprise and delight her website was on pages 3 and 4 for her keyword phrases. We like to go after about 4 long tail keyword phrases at a time on a website because this will keep the site from becoming diluted to the point that google bots have a difficult time figuring out what your website is about.
We decided at that time to start using the website as a case study.
I finished the design on her website and added all the thin content in February and March.
She keeps climbing up the SERPS.
In April I personally wrote all her in depth content for her long tail keyword phrases. At that time we decided to add another page which are very specific to sellers with a specific keyword phrase we figured we could beat the big real estate boy sites with.
I just checked last night and her seller focused keyword phrases are in spots #1 and #2 on page one on Google now!
This is very exciting news. Does this mean that her phone will ring off the hook? No, not likely. Unless you are in a market where the real estate agents are not doing anything online, it will take time to get leads that are sellers looking to list. There are not as many sellers looking to list as there are buyers looking to buy. But the sellers you do get, are very well worth the effort of making sure you are positioned in the #1 spot on Google page one.
But she is beating out all those sites we all know and don't like:).
Her other keyword phrases have moved up to page 2 and page 3. This is also good news because as we add more content to the site and focus on ranking, her site will keep rising up the SERPS.
Having a great and awesome looking website is important but not the end all, be all. Marketing is an ongoing process. It is not a one time thing. You have to continue to add content to your website. You have to publish to your blog on your website often. The stats show that business owners who post articles 15 times per month receive much more business than those who don't.
Rhonda just had her IDX broker account approved by the MLS. We are going to be adding some IDX pages to her site and optimize them for SEO. We will then allow the site to stew a while before we check the SERPS again.
Once those are in place, we will add some more light boxes to the site that we can send traffic from ads to. This will also help with SEO because it will increase the traffic to the site. This in turn, will get her some buyer leads even though her site is focused on getting listings. This all takes time to gel.
Patience is the key.
We will then start to monitor the traffic. This includes checking analytics to see which keyword phrases are bringing traffic to the website and focus on building content around those terms as long as those terms are congruent with ‘money' terms, ( meaning- those most likely to buy or sell are the ones searching those phrases).
This is an exciting project and I am grateful that Rhonda has allowed me to use her site as a case study.
Rhonda is a Listing Experts Academy member who follows what she learns to apply the best practices for SEO and branding on the internet.
I have more websites I have completed and all the websites are climbing the SERPS. It is so exciting to watch each of my clients' websites climb and also receive compliments from sellers about how great their websites look and feel. Contact me for a list of references if you are considering getting a website built. My clients are happy campers! I do all the design work myself on your websites. I also make sure that you get weekly updates on your website progress.
Of course if you are a DIYer – I have a ton of free website building video tutorials over on my YouTube channel for you!

Congratulations to Rhonda, one of my wonderful clients. She hired me to design her a website. She is a member of my Listing Experts Academy and also a private coaching client.
Rhonda Fee owns her brokerage in Pleasanton California. She did all her avatar training which is in module 1 in Listing Experts Academy and then she hired me to help her with her keyword research just to make sure she was on the right track.
We discovered her avatar. An avatar is your ideal customer persona but it goes way deeper than general demographics. We really drill down. We were able to really narrow her niche to match her avatar.
From there I was able to take her logo as the guide to her colors and messege that will resonate with her avatar. It flows and tells her story in a way that will meet her avatar where she is.
It is so exciting to see all of the necessary pieces come together.
Check out her website at: http://HomeValuesPleasanton.com.
