I am thinking about strating my own BLOG site and checking out many of yours!

Asked by Laura Grace, Pittsboro, NC Wed Apr 9, 2008

I would appreciate advice on sites that are easy to manage, but also interested to find if it has been helpful in generating leads, and incresing SEO. Are agents using them because it just is one more way to remind people you are in Real Estate, or because everyone else has one? Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Hi Laura,
I've found Wordpress to be very easy to use. You can either have your blog hosted on their site or download the program and install it on your own domain. Wordpress has many plugins for increasing your SEO. Having a specific type of blog usually works best (investment properties, certain city, etc.) Ours only covers the city of Stillwater, MN - http://www.movetostillwater.com - it was just recently launched so not too many posts yet. Once it gets rolling though I'm sure it'll rank towards the top search results for Stillwater.
