I have had my personal site Search Idaho Homes for 7+ years and it is a template site with Ihouse. It was recommended to me by an SEO specialist from Active Rain to rewrite some on the content so that I could get ranked higher with Google. I had always ranked very high with Yahoo but by best ranking with Google was on the 10th page and that was it. I never changed the content of my site because I was contemplating a change.
I took the advice of several Active Rain members and just kept writing my posts and using Active Rain and Localism to it's fullest. Member Chris Elizabeth Griffith encouraged me to change my entire Active Rain profile and do some other things with the setup of my blogs and much, much more. I took her advice and transformed my Active Rain Profile and I made some other changes she recommended. Chris has been awesome to me and we have exchanged many direct emails and phone calls.
Chris also showed me how to see which sites are visiting my site since she also has an Ihouse site. As you can see below, Active Rain is now bringing more traffic to my site than any another site.
As I result my site is now coming up on the 2nd page of Google when I type in "Homes for sale in Nampa Idaho" in the Google search bar which is the highest ranking my site has ever had and I did it without changing the content of my pages!
The power of using Active Rain and Localism cannot be overstated. Thank you Active Rain and Thank you Chris!
