Wow has it been 10 years already? I cannot believe how far we have come together. For those of you who are newer - a bit of a back story: A decade ago I started REW as a discussion forum for realtors interested in technology and marketing. I was the "SEO Guy" back then and I loved teaching this stuff (I still do). I had a few Realtor clients and ever since my involvement as a senior moderator SEO Chat I was addicted to community learning so I thought I would create a forum for us to inter...
