I have a standard point to agent site, I have redone the page titles and keywords and trying to get the main home page to rank better, I found the inside pages around page 5 and 7 of google but never did find my main page yet.
I'm trying to learn seo and stuff, I have spoke with a few here on this forum and you are getting on the first page of google. What can I do?
How is point 2 nls anyway? or should I try some other company. I'm pretty savy on making my website and learning each day.

Thanks

Your site is pretty new, isn't it? At least the fact that there is no history at Alexa indicates that it is new. That is most of your problem.

For sites targeting competitive commercial keywords - and that includes most real estate keywords - it can take 9 months to a year (even longer for real competitive terms) before a site begins to rank well in Google. It is their way of combating spam and recruiting Adwords customers.

All you can do is continue to acquire good links pointing at your site and have patience smile

Doug is definitely right. While real estate keywords are extremely difficult to get in the top of the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages), the best way to do this is to target detailed (also known as 'long tail') keywords. For example, you don't want to target the keyword 'real estate', for all the power players with the large budgets are at the top of the SERPs. Instead, go for keywords like 'Indiana Real Estate' or even 'South Bend Indiana Real Estate'. Granted, since these keywords are very long tail, they won't get too much traffic, but for the traffic you do get, you will have a high probability of reaching the top of the search engine rankings.

May I suggest you do everything within your power to relate your website to the term "Indiana Real Estate".

You can start by:
-Submitting to Directories (I have a list of RE directories, just IM me and I'll email it to you)
-Writing articles about Indiana real estate and publishing them on your website.
-Write and publishing different RE articles to directories about Indiana real estate (linking to your website)
-Acquiring links (don't forget your anchor--"Indiana real estate"!)
-Then acquire some more links!!

Nice suggestions Rjacobsen -

Livechatrealtor,

Make sure that the articles you write for your website are unique and that they are different from the ones you send out to article directories. You don't want to have duplicate content all over your site.

You might also want to change your links in your signature so that they are anchor text links e.g. Indiana Real Estate - if you need help doing this, or an explanation, PM me and I'll help you best I can.

You'd probably be best off going after long tail keywords (as mentioned) at first but don't forget to constantly build for your stronger words.

oh, dear...I do NOT like the pink & teal! sorry...

Just make the page background white, with dark blue text for headings and links and it will be a huge improvement.

Gotta agree with Perky on this one. That pink and teal practically hurts the eyeballs.

I have to agree with you guys on the color too. I have not liked it since I changed it. I was trying to achieve a calm warm natural feeling. That didn't work.

I would actually try to optimize for South Bend Indiana Real Estate, unless you work across the entire state. I suppose you could set up a referral network and try to get referral fees for people looking in other parts of the state, but if you work in South Bend, I would try to rank for that term following all of the suggestions above!

Site design aside, I concur with the long tail idea: Indiana Real Estate will get you many visitors (only if you succeed - which you probably won't), but few leads.

Some other ideas: South Bend IN Real Estate
South Bend Indiana Real Estate
South Bend Indiana Homes for Sale
South Bend Indiana Houses

Or any other combination. You'll find you'll rank pretty quickly if you change it up to any of those and focus on that.
