Hi Bigtoe I have been on your site and it is really good. Lots of good quality info but all people do not like getting the info the same way. I find if you write a good quality blog post, then do a video of the same info and after that do a podcast of the same info you are hitting those that like to read, those that like to watch and those that like to listen. We all like to gather info in different ways. The question is how much more would you make if you were to podcast and or video some of your really good content?

Just a note of the language you used in your original question:

"my listings, a property search, my bio, my blog, my company's info, "

That's a lot about you. Write some stuff about 'them' too. ie. what your services will do for them that they can't get anywhere else.

And, I second the idea of video too. I don't even like watching video but I am not your customer - many of your customers do like watching video and many don't. So, have articles and videos. But make them about your prospects, not about you.

Be sure to add internal pages for specific communities in your area. Use long tail keywords on those pages. Eg. If your market is Trenton NJ you want to focus your keywords for the home page to that but be sure to build internal pages for communities you specialize in and use seo/keywords specific to that community.

Yes Add internal pages to your website and make a sitemap.xml file, upload it. This sitemap will help Google to know all of the pages on your website. This inturn help in indexing of all your pages. Secondly to make your website Google friendly upload Title meta tags of your website. Apply Google analytics and Webmaster verification code to it. Use H1 to H6 heading tag heirarchy in it. Put in the most important keyword in the H1 heading tag.

I included in my website, promos and events.

Great content should be great! not only for seo purposes but also for your audience.

If they can get value info from your blogs, chances are they will spread your website to their friends. In that way, you will get a free and effective marketing effort.

What kind of website are you trying to design? Does it include specific prospect you are hoping to target? These two questions will help you understand the behavior and characteristic of a website you are going create. Before you put anything on it (content, design, etc.) these questions must first be answered.

I suggest taking an objective look around your area and considering 4-5 hyper-local neighborhoods / subdivisions to focus on with great content. You have to find a niche on the web, especially if you face significant competition. Keeping the number of areas to focus on relatively small will help you have time to develop the quality of content necessary to rank.

I have visited your site LisaDArnold and it is beautiful. As for content, how about creating a tab for your blog and attach it to your site. This way your website will always have fresh content available.

You might also want to make your site full width so that you can incorporate more plugins like, market valuation, what's happening in your area, your own listed properties, etc.

I agree that videos are annoying and so is music or a voice over that starts up as soon as the site appears. Imagine all the people who are searching while supposedly working. Noise coming from the computer is a dead giveaway.

Content is still King. Google Owns Youtube..So therefore, those agent that utilize video and Google Plus have a better chance of showing up organically.

You can add Live Support Chatting and add more features section with photos with exact location. And better will add the GEO map location identification.

Look at other successful websites that are doing what you are trying to do. Get ideas from them. Have good content that will allow you to use your website as a good reference when you are talking to a buyer on the phone. If it is good enough for you to repeatedly use as a reference, it will be good enough for everyone else. Be the best resource out there for your niche. Make sure your site is very easy to navigate and use.
