I already have a website. Why do I need this service?
Having your own website is extremely important but it's absolutely essential
that it be recognized by the search engines. If it's not, you're
going to miss out on many opportunities and it will cost you thousands.
This service isn't another website but rather a link to get your website
recognized by those searching for "your-town real estate"
on the Internet.
What is a Search Engine?
A search engine is a server or a collection of servers dedicated to
indexing Internet web pages, storing the results and returning lists
of pages which match particular queries. The indexes are normally generated
using spiders. Some of the major search engines are Google, AltaVista,
Excite, MSN, Hotbot, Lycos and AOL (note that Yahoo is a directory and
not a search engine). The term Search Engine is often used to describe
both directories and search engines.
What do I need to know about search engines?
You dont need to know any details, only that prospects every day
go home to their computer, go to a search engine such as MSN.com and
type in the search box Your city real estate. A set of results come
up of websites which match the query - probably your competitors! The
goal is to come up in the first couple of pages, have prospects go through
to your website and fill out a request for more information. Voila!
How do you get to the top of the search engines?
Its competitive because every Realtor in your city wants to rank
highly. Its a combination of how the page is designed, link popularity
and a consistent search engine submission strategy. This is what your
monthly fee covers - submissions, tweaking of pages, and a monthly reassessment
of where you rank.
Do I really need to rank highly?
Yes! Its critical to your success. If you pay for a website and
dont monitor its success in the search engines, its like
having a fancy suit and never taking it out of the closet! You miss
out on so much potential business. All my sales in my last two years
of real estate came from Buyer leads from my website - thats with
NO advertising and NO listings!
I already have great search engine spots. Do I still
require this service?
Congratulations -- you are ahead of the game; however, wouldn't it be
great to have more than one great spot? The more websites the better
- the goal is to dominate the search engines so your competition cant!
This means one less spot for your competition and one additional spot
What else do you do to promote my site?
We look for local and national Internet directories and add your link
for you free of charge. This saves you time so you're able to do what
you do best - sell real estate!
I've already paid to be submitted to the search
engines. Why do I need this service?
We continually monitor and submit our pages using automated
search engine software. Also, our pages are specifically designed
to be search engine friendly -- something that isn't always possible
with flashy websites.

How does your service work?
We use automated software to submit, monitor & re-submit to the
search engines when necessary. Your details are placed on our
high ranking page and then linked directly through to your website.
Once the prospect finds their way to your site, it's in your hands.
Will I be the only one representing my area?
Yes. There will only be one Realtor, one mortgage broker, one
home inspector & one real estate lawyer per city so you don't have
to worry about competition.
I don't currently have a website. Can
I still join to guarantee my city's availability?
Yes, although to take full advantage of our services you should plan
on getting a website in the near future. We can even build one
for you. For more information, click
Do I need to know or do anything technical?
Absolutely not. We will do everything for you. We don't
even have to do anything to your website. It's all done on our
How many hits do you get?
Measuring hits can be calculated many different ways. It depends
on many things such as whether or not it's for the entire site or just
a page, whether they're hits vs. click throughs, whether or not they're
unique visitors, and so on. At present we're averaging between
60 to 70 unique visitors per page, per week. Keep in mind that
these are hits coming to your page that you share with no other competitors.
Do you guarantee results?
No. Unfortunately, it's impossible to guarantee top spots on the
search engines as they're constantly changing their criteria.
Be wary of anyone who says they can guarantee top ten spots. We
do however guarantee to stay on top of the search engines in order to
keep you competitive. We want to rank well just as much as you
