Your Internet Presence...How Much is Too Much?

Real Estate Broker with Missy Caulk TEAM

How much is too much?

I'm talking about the web-sites you maintain and your Internet Presence.

Sometimes it can get a little overwhelming, especially with blogs that you have to keep up with. I am thankful that my AnnArborUndressedBlog, (outside Activerain blog) auto posts from my Activerain posts.

ann arbor undressed

It took a while to get the search engines to like AnnArborUndressed but now since Activerain changed the outside blogs to be the authority blog it moving up in the SERPS. 

Are you new to Activerain?

If so and you have tried the FREE version; it is time to upgrade to the paid subscription. This is where the power of blogging can change your future and bring in business. If you need help give me a call.

I have a couple of static sites: and One is new but with the old domain name. Dakno redesigned it and I post all my listings on there. I can also add community information and neighborhoods so it is not totally static.

The MissyCaulkTeam site is a Point2Agent site. I have imported by RSS feed my blogs. I use this site because it syndicates my listings to agents all over S.E. Michigan to agents that have accepted a handshake agreement. I get a few leads from it a month, so I've kept it. But, it doesn't really work well with Fox Fire or Safari and I hate to go over to IE. It is suppose to but it always logs up.

AnnArborRealEstateTalk is my blog about Ann Arbor and Saline. I rarely post fun stuff, or technology things over there.  Just information for the consumer. I posted on Land Contracts being acceptable for taking advantage of the First Time Home Buyer Credit. I have about 51 comments and requests to read the legal decision.

Photos.AnnArborRealEstateTalk.comI also have a photo blog, that I just use my cell phone to snap a photo when I am out and about.

That is easy to maintain, just snap and send to it automatically.



I enjoy taking photos around Ann Arbor and Saline. It makes me see my communities with a new lens.








My new baby is a Posterous Blog. I am having fun with that as you just submit a page you are reading, a photo, or whatever you are doing on the internet and it automatically posts it. Posterous blogs are FREE, and you can have as many as you want. If you haven't set one up yet, you should, they are fun. Just email anything you want to post or add the booket in your tool bar. Nobody comments too much you just get sent a bi-weekly email and can look at all the ones you are subscribing too.

Of course I have a company web-site Buy Ann Arbor Real Estate but never get leads from it. I heard Google doesn't like template sites and I have found that to be true.

One of the sites that requires very little maintenance is my




This site is basically Twitter Feeds that come in for certain pages, like Saline, Ann Arbor, Food, Wolverines, Sports, jobs, and of course Real Estate.

Once a week, I am honored to post on AgentGenius Magazine. Lani asked me to post on Sunday's recently so my first political post went in yesterday on Climate Chains.

Sunday's are going to like the Sunday morning shows on TV, so all the posts will be political. I think this will be a good fit for me.

I love the writers at AG, if you haven't visited there you should check it out.


The site that brings me the most business is my IDX Home Search Site; 

This is my Pay Per Click home search site. All my sites have a place to search homes and go straight to this Home Search


Sometimes I wonder... is it just too much...but my theory is you never know which portal a consumer is going to find you on.

When the phone rings or you receive an email with someone finding you online and needing help to buy or sell it makes it all worth it.

Remember this post was about web-site and blogs; NOTHING about Social Media Communities.

As the year 2009 winds down, my static's are showing that about 70% of my closings have come from Internet Buyers and Sellers.

It use to be the opposite, but most folks are not moving UP in Ann Arbor or Saline or Down-Sizing. So we have to be continually bringing in new business from the Buyers & Sellers on the internet moving here. 

They are waiting...but I am NOT.

No surprise that you are getting 70% of your business from the internet. Those that have leveraged the power of SEO know that a lot of business comes your way:)

How on earth do you find time to manage all those sites and write posts and STILL sell real estate?  I feel totally inadequate since i've so far been unable to consistently post to just a single blog!  You're like Wonder Woman!!
