Thats the dumbest blog I have ever seen. One of the comments has made it pretty clear why trulia pages rank higher. Its not because they block out going links, its because they do a URL rewrite (among other things).
Plus as a realtor do you really care how the buyer came to you. Through trulia or your own site? At the end of the day you are getting your commission. Plus nobody searches for properties directly typing their address (unless you have seen them before). Sites like trulia let new buyers start out their search and then also get in touch with prospective agents. (I got mine through redfin.com)
Believe it or not , sites like trulia actually do work for realtors better than their own sites.

It will be interesting to see in the future if someone brings a lawsuit against one of these people posing as a Realtor and if they can be held liable for damages?
