Welcome to “Do Follow” Tuesdays. To read what this is all about, you can check our announcement post.
In summary, every Tuesday we pick a vertical market based on the number of votes a market receives at our Vertical Market Poll. This week it is the Real Estate market. We invite all of you out there to post in the comments a specific link building recommendation for the Real Estate market (a good directory, authority website, blog, link search, etc.). If it adds value, we will approve it, give you the credit and a “do follow” link to your site. However, we will just delete stupid, irrelevant, spammy comments – only truly useful information will be allowed.
It is little surprise that Real Estate became our top vote getter in short order. This is a very competitive market and every good lead truly matters. This week’s suggestion from our staff starts with directing you to another website. There is a superb list if SEO and link building resources located at International Listings. There is a list of blogs and forums you could reach out to for linking purposes and for some great content. (Remember – share the link love with them first, it will eventually come back to you.) There is also a list of search engines where you might place some of your listings or your website. And while you are there, take the time to make a useful comment and get a link to your site!
Just like the automotive market, realtors need to think local. Google local, Yahoo, and MSN/Live. are great places to get local listings. They are free, so there is no excuse not to create them for all of your physical locations. Once you do, get some customers to add reviews and maybe even point some links to your local page. It all helps!
OK, now lets hear from the rest of you. Place your advice for link building for the real estate market in the comments below. Those that are accepted will get a nice "do follow" link from us.
Make sure you sign up for our email or RSS feed so that you are alerted every time a new vertical market is covered. Even if we are not focusing on your niche, you just might see a pretty creative idea that will trigger an thought for your market.
Be sure to vote for your market today! VOTE HERE
