On February 19th it was confirmed that the side ads on Google’s right-rail were disappearing. Though it might have come as a shock for many advertisers, Google started testing this as far back as 2010. Now that side ads (positions 4 through 8) are a thing of the past, here is what you need to know: Now there are 4 top ads! Instead the first 3 positions being shown above the organic results, Google is giving advertisers one more chance at being listed in that top section. ...

Please note this promo ended on June 30, 2015. Last week I had the privilege of attending the REW Summit in Nashville as a speaker.

Did you know that each of these services is now only $300/month for management, plus more savings for bundles? In addition, here’s the pro...

Last week I had the privilege of representing Real Estate Webmasters at a Google Partners Academy Training Event at Google’s Canadian HQ in Toronto.

REW Charity Proposal: The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

REW Anne posted this 1,214 Views

You’ve likely heard about Multiple Sclerosis (MS) before; you may even know someone with MS, but do you know what causes Canada’s most common neurological disease? The truth is, we do not know what causes MS. May is MS Awareness Month, and I can’t think of a better time for Real Estate Webmasters to show its community support (through its AMAZING charity initiative) for this important cause. This is my formal submission to REW to choose our local chapter of the MS Soci...

Powerball Real Estate

REW Anne posted this 4,795 Views

The absolutely colossal Powerball lottery $588 million dollar jackpot seen this past week was more than enough to inspire day dreams across America (we were fantasizing about it in Canada too). And though it’s unlikely one single person will win the entire jackpot, wouldn’t it be fun to pretend? Let’s imagine that we’ve won… of course, we don’t want our fantasy to be totally unrealistic, so let’s account for taxes. With the dust settled we still have about $385 million dollars to spend...
