I thought I would repost this information for those who aren't aware of the power of a community blog to attract potential clients.
Our other blog, the Black Rock Community blog is now in the top 17% of all websites on the Internet as ranked by Alexa and in the top 4% of all blogs as ranked by Technorati. The Black Rock Community blog also appears on Page 1 in Google searches for Black Rock and has had over 19,100 visits from viewers around the world since its inception in 2006. The number of visits increased from 3,646 in 2007 to 10,403 in 2008.
We are particularly excited about the number of viewers from New York City as many of these buyers contact us directly to learn about the Black Rock community and to buy real estate. We had 1,401 visits from New York City on the site in 2008 compared to 607 in 2007.
As the Internet continues to become more important to buyers in their search for their next home, the high ranking of our blog on Google searches means more exposure for Black Rock homes when they are on the market, since we use the vFlyer widget which features the photos of listings, have a link directly to our real estate website with our listings, and encourage viewers to subscribe to our e-mail updates, which includes real estate information.
Come visit us on www.blackrockonline.org and learn more about this great community.
