What is Google Pagerank?

Morgan Carey posted this 1,941 Views

According to Google Technologists PageRank Explained PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at considerably more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; for example, it also analyzes the page that casts the vote.

Get Your Buyers Agreements Signed

Ryan Ward posted this 6 1,552 Views

Do you have buyers sign a Buyer Brokerage Agreement? You should. This is more of a vent and you can look at me as an example if you aren't using an agreement before you show houses.

What if I told you that you can lose sales by not getting this agreement signed? Would that help you to get it signed? Well, t...

A quick glance of back at this time period during 2006 shows 161 sold. This same time period during 2007 shows a dramatic dr...

One of the things that I have wanted to do for quite a while is post about the office that I work at. It is truly and amazing place.

Florida Homeowner Insurance Relief - Six Months Later

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 2,815 Views

Well, it's been six months since Gov. Crist signed legislation intended to help Florida homeowners burned by skyrocketing home insurance bills. A review of the situation shows it did not quite turn out like the politicians in Tallahassee thought it would. State officials promised Florida residents that rates would begin dropping by 25% on the average since the new law permits insurance companies to purchase cheaper state-backed reinsurance and then pass those savings on to their policyhol...
