This Just In - Blogging Works!

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC

I got a call this afternoon from a broker in a realty office that wants me to come to speak to their office about Chinese Drywall.  I have written many blogs on the topic.

Asking how this broker got my name she said she Googled "Northern Virginia Chinese Drywall Expert" and my name was the first home inspector to come up.

Tonight I did the same thing.  I come up #5 out of 10,300 possible hits!  Not bad...

All of that is because of my blogging on the topic.

CAN BLOGGING ACTUALLY GET YOUR NAME OUT THERE?

We suppose so!!

Hopefully this call will lead to lots of new clients and future business.  I will keep you informed!

Amen to that.  It's worked for me too!  Just google "attic bypass" , "gravity furnace" , "ungrounded three prong outlets", and who knows what else.  I've learned that having good tags really helps too.

Reuben - I think it is the quality of the tag that gets the bots searching and archiving where to go to read what.  But it has been really good for me to blog.
