How to Make it on the Trulia Voices Homepage

In real life there’s no formula you can use to become popular, but the good news is that for most online services, there is one!  On Trulia Voices knowing the formula and using it to your advantage could mean that your Q&A or blog, could be featured on the Trulia Voices homepage. What better way to establish yourself as an expert than appearing on the homepage of one of the most popular destinations for serious homebuyers and home sellers?

So, are you wondering what the formula is? It is actually very simple…

Trulia determines popularity using a points system. Points are given to a post (blog or Q&A) if any of the following have occurred within the past 7 days:

  • The post received new answers or comments.
  • The post was viewed by people interested in the topic.
  • The post received a Thumbs Up Vote by  a reader.

More recent views give posts extra points. And of course, the more a post  is viewed, the more thumbs up votes it receives, and the more answers or comments it gets, the more likely it is to appear and remain on the Trulia Voices homepage for more time.

The Trulia Voices homepage updates to show the newest popular content several times a day and the chances for you to be in the spotlight are quite high! Check out some tips that we put together just for you.

Surprisingly simple isn’t it?
