Chicago Northwest Suburbs Real Estate
Ok this just made me laugh. I was over at AR (for whatever reason I have no idea, it's not like I ever post there anymore) and there was yet another feature post "promoting active rain" - imagine that - kiss active rains ass to get on the homepage - wish I was a rainmaker.
In the article the poster writes:
"Ok I'll tell you a better reason to join Active Rain... Active Rain gives you the power to advertise yourself anywhere on the internet. The exposure you get from Active Rain is second to none. I did an experiment. For one week, I posted about the Chicago Northwest Suburbs. I think I wrote 3 or 4 posts with the key words Chicago Northwest Suburbs Real Estate. Before that my website was nowhere to be found when you googled Chicago Northwest Suburbs real estate.
Now where will you find me if you Google Chicago Northwest Suburbs. Yes I'm on page one of Google and guess what I'm the first entry. The power of active rain is truly amazing! "
Chicago Northwest Suburbs Real Estate are you kidding me!
I can rank for purple monkey pink dinosaur to if I really set my mind to it - and the fact of the matter is, that's about as competitive as the phrase you are so "amazed" that you could rank at AR.
Now I suppose I should be nice as it's not likely the posters fault that she is nieve and actually beleives that she has accomplished something amazing (when in fact "chicago northwest suburbs real estate" is completely nothing to be proud of as it's non competitive) - it's not really her that annoys me - it's Active Rain and their constant featuring of these crap rah rah rah posts.
I am sorry Judy but you've been hoodwinked / "active brainwashed" if you ask me - sorry your article happened to be the one (of hundreds like it that I have seen featured) that set me off on this fine Friday afternoon.
Btw - (especially because I know lots of my readers are going to link to this post with the anchor text "Chicago Northwest Suburbs Real Estate" you are going to find very quickly that this post also ranks on the first page of Google and pushing the submit button after finishing writing is the only effort I am going to put into it.
