Mark Wielgus of 45n5.com a Make Money Online blog posted this EXCELLENT video all about SEO.

The main point is how are people going to find you online. Many will say that SEO is the ticket, but that is not the answer. When your first starting out the best thing to do is to get the word out about your blog. Doing SEO work will not let the world know about your blog at first. Participating with other bloggers WILL get the word out about your blog. Worry about SEO later.

    Hey Ben, that was quite an issue in the more recent Commonwealth. Looks like there will be bloggers cropping up everywhere–2 new ones in Arlington in the last few months. Quit spreading the word, Ben!

    Jay, thanks for your compliments on the Social Media edition of the magazine. By the way, all of the feature articles in that magazine are available to read on VARbuzz.com. First movers have a leg up on the competition, so you’re in a good position to retain your differentiation. I realize that your comment is at least a little bit tongue-in-cheek, but in the same way that having a website used to be cutting-edge, eventually close to 100% of REALTORS will have a blog. The REALTORS who put focused mental attention on it will win the blog battles, and as you know, not all can do that.

    Ben, I’ve noticed from the new blogs this year that ALL of them are inconsequential to me as they are not “deep” or “heavy” and they certainly don’t involved any serious SEO. So to those of us who have been around a little while, it’s made zero difference for now. I expect that to not change for awhile. But it is interesting…I wish I had started a year earlier back in 2005….hhaha
