Now that things have finally started to slow down a bit after our record shattering $40,000,000 valuation on CBC's Dragon's Den this past week, it's time for me to get back to work. I posted our 12 days of Christmas promotion on my blog over here: and I've been getting a LOT of email inquiries regarding "how do I reach my goals" "what should I buy", "how much time do I need to get" "what can I expect as results" and many more. I'm doing my best to keep up but as they are one off's and so m...

Index pages for Realtors - what you need to know for great SEO

Morgan Carey posted this 5 2,426 Views

Before I get into recommendations for how to ensure and maximize indexing of pages (especially low value pages & IDX pages) I would like to clarify a few things. #1: Unless “specifically blocked” Google is able to index (store a copy of) any “built in” IDX system on the market. For a system to be “built in” it means that the IDX and website vendor reside on the same platform and a dynamic (data base driven) system is outputting pages that appear as &...

An appeal to MIBOR - Indianapolis board of Realtors

Morgan Carey posted this 5 8,518 Views

I just posted this as a comment on the NAR blog, but I thought that it probably deserved it's own post as it really should be directed at MIBOR and not NAR - basically we all know the change to the IDX verbiage will be passed it's just a matter of due dilligence (can't blame NAR for that I suppose) but it's also going to take time - all the while, we are stuck without indexable pages until this ruling passes (we being Paula Henry / Mike Taylor of http://www.reddoorindy.com and myself - yes, ...

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 exposu...

How much can each unique visitor cost me? And a bunch of other questions I might want to know if I was a Realtor Ok guys, this is a bit of a long one and it jumps around a lot (because I am writing as I work through my thoughts, but hey that's why we have blogs right?

Morgan Carey posted this 98 16,195 Views

Or maybe just a little bit of fun :) My buddy Eric Bramlett who has been really firing it up doing his own SEO lately (He is first and foremost a Realtor - or at least he used to be heh) came up with an idea for a fun contest - the "Greatest Real Estate Agent In The World Contest" (He gets a link because it was his idea - this is NOT my idea and I take no responsibility for the great relationships you may build or the learning you may experience. Also as with any attempts at expe...
