Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Tag, You're It In The Real Estate Blog Post Game.

The tags you single out that you think the real estate buyer or seller will hunt and peck to find your post.

You have worked hard, your tongue tip just sticking out of the corner of your mouth focused. As you mercedes star emblem photocreate like a little beaver to build the post with relevant, pertinent fresh helpful content.

You pour over and hand pick the right images. Dial in the correct proportions to flow with the layout of the real estate blog post. To make it look sexy, fluid, have eye appeal in the screenshot reaction.

You embed the video that ties in with the topic. Add the headings, sub titles. Check the links that are salt and peppered, marinating, oozing from inside the perfumed presentation.

And now how to tag for the cherry on top. To label and define what it all boils down to for the bell ringing. To detonate after the real estate blog post swims at a high speed. Tons of bubbles swirl. As it leaves the marketing torpedo tube at a high rate of thrust.

The real estate blog posts, to tag and how to tag. That is always the important question.

On all the Maine blog platforms we post on in rotation, the round robin special attention to the tags is critical. And as we read, watch and listen to other blog post channels there is a vast array of shagging and tagging going on.

Like decorating the Christmas tree detail some use, others not so much. You've seen the ones that stand on the other side of the living room and heave the handfuls of tinsel, garland and other doo dads on the pine or fir. As we scroll down to the comment section to add two cents, it is easy to pick up out of the corner of your eye the blog post tags the poster picked, selected.

Sometimes there are so many tags it is a winding tunnel drilling down to China long.

On and on. Would have been easier to label the few left out tags the post did not have relevancy for to make it easy peasy for the bots.

Other times short and sweet ferrari prancing horse photowith just a few succinctly selected blog post tags. Chosen with economy as if each selected cost 1000 dollars each. The Active Rain blog post tag line can look cupboard thread bare. Minimal, little black dress skimpy but powerful.

And other times, those tags are the short and long tail of what the blog poster hopes to hit for a target online audience. But the majority have nearly nothing to do with what the paragraphs up top are radiating for a message.

No mention of what is tagged in the prose using the twenty six letters we all have to work with on the white, blank, wrinkle free AR blogging post canvas.

Kinda like putting, riveting or bolting on a BMW prop, Mercedes three point star or Ferrari prancing horse on the side of a Yugo taking place.

Setting the wrong expectation. One black, one blue sock mismatch. The tag what the real estate poster wants to see win, place and show for but the content like a dented can of fruit or vegetables. The rest of us not so sure what it is inside. As the content label is missing, or one slapped on gives the wrong hint of what is inside for half price. Ten for a dollar.

In the bin of misfits, outdated food stuffs you neck rein around as you guide the wire cart with always one squeaky, stuck sideways bad wheel in the shopping laps around the Piggly Wiggly.

Listening to worn out, outdated, slightly distorted clarinet muzak overhead dripping out of the speakers.

So tagging the real estate blog posts. Labeling for the indexing on search engines, the audience to pick up the smoke signal clearly on what this real estate blog post is all about. Hey.

The least amount of time to do compared to the rest of the food for thought back kitchen or pantry literary creation. But so so important. Like the words of a surgeon saying let's close up the patient after cutting, slicing and dicing along the dotted line.

The life and death for survival operation a success as he crosses his fingers like a real estate blogger when he hovers over the publish, submit key.

Hopes, prays, pushes away from under the surgical blue bright light. Holding high his gloved bmw logo photobloodied hands and someone helps him ungown. So he can trot, lope out into the waiting room. To spill the beans to the anxious family.

About what he found while sneaking a peek inside a loved one studied, sweated over horizontally for the last four hours. In the cut, sponge, suction, suture and stitch up, make the zipper beep beep beep of monitors and tubing.

The bagging and tagging reaal estate blog posts. Jockeying for online front page position like the query is likely, predicted to be made.

By Jack and Jill, Tom, Dick and Harry. Not about how you would say it, but the way the surfer talks, types, communicates out in the marketing place buzz, rattle and hum.

In his lingo, jargon, expression string always works best. And your back end log results prove it time and again. Over and over in your real estate blog posting tag selection.

It is an interesting subject Andrew. I think the biggest problem is not trying different tags. If you stick with the same thing it may not work. Also I like to do searches to see what comes up, pretending I am a buyer in the Internet. Great blog.

Noah ... Like beating the drum. You can search for one set of key words and get fixated to dominate in that one target. But coming at the topic from different routes to achieve the same dominance means wided the stance. Make sure what you post is labeled correctly and shake it up, do rotations of the healthy posting diet offerings. You can get too watered down and all over the place too. Hammer on common themes, feed those regularly. Then add around the edges to round it all out in your media streams marketing message.

Most people don't give enough thought to tags, I guess I didn't ether, thanks for this post - it gives me  different perspective.

Good post...tags are always the question. I found it interesting- thanks

Piggly Wiggly, haha - do they still have those?  I think you have a pretty good handle on the internet marketing thing.

Good points, and I need to consider my tags a little more carefully.  Thank you for the reminder!

Agreed, Andrew, picking the right tags is a real art.  One that I have yet to master.

Yvette ... Your tag starts the sorting, filtering out in the wild blue yonder. Like the right zip code.

Cindy ... One more detail to tend. It is all the devil in the details right?

Georgie ... This little piggie went... well to whatever it is called today where they peddle groceries. Big Black Wolf I think swallowed them up whole. Merging must have happened. Or maybe it was Food Lion. Oink.

Rebecca ... What you pick important to tie in with the paragraphs above but if you have 200 tag strings then the horsepower for the target suffers. Gets watered down, skim.

Gabe ... Like you, always a beginner but taking very good notes, paying attention and sitting down front to glean as much knowledge in this ever changing field called real estate. That some call an addiction, jealous master, sport.

Mmn - food for thought here Andy. I'm wondering if the fewer tags are more powerful. I see you have two attached to this post - would 4 or 5 be too much? So many details to be proficient at in this game of blogging. :)

Andrew, yes, i is important to pick the right tags and you have described the importance of this to a “tee”.

Posted by Ralph Gorgoglione, Hawaii and California Real Estate (310) 497-9407 (Maui Life Homes / Metro Life Homes) over 6 years ago

Good advice Andrew. It's time we stopped and think for a minute before adding tags.

Posted by Florida Management and Consulting Group Inc., Real Estate Brokerage and Property Managers (Florida Management and Consulting Group, Inc. ) over 6 years ago

Debb ... A few well chosen tags tied to the topic works best. All you need. Because like the dented can of whatever mystery food is missing its label, the connection gets lost. And I don't know about you but always worry about "bet it's lima beans". Maybe they remove those labels on purpose and pretend it was ripped off in shipping on the least desirable veggies. I have discovered kale thanks to youngest son.

Ralph ... You have to have the fresh, helpful content to go with the tags though. Otherwise you have a Lamborghini in the driveway. Looks fast, sleek. But it never gets taken out on the open online Internet highway to shock and awe. Tagging done right means all kind of exciting options open up.

PMBC ... Like USDA grading, sorting or when we use to have to pre sort the direct mail piece. Apply the three, orange 3 and 5 digit numbers and help the process of heading down the torpedo USPS funnel to hit the target mailing. You are a partner in the process.

Hi Andrew - important topic and one I found interesting to read(along with the comment stream too) --- definitely need to devote more time to understanding it.   Catchy post title.
