Craigslist Real Estate Ads Generate Google Juice

I am a big fan of a FREE service called Google Alerts.  What Google Alerts can do is search the internet every day for a specific keyword or search term and when it locates a match it will automatically email you the term and a link to the website.  This is super beneficial especially when you are tracking and monitoring your real estate marketing.  Last night we posted an advertisement to Craigslist and the headline of the advertisement was "Apple Valley Lake Waterfront Home".  In less than 24 hours Google had picked it up, indexed the page and emailed me a notification.  This is another confirmation that Google is searching and indexing Craigslist and it also means that there may be value created from this type of advertising especially if your advertisement contains a link back to the specific property you have for sale.  

I hope you find this tip helpful.

Pat - Thank you!  Google Alerts is an amazing service that comes to us every single day automatically with zero effort on our part.  I love the idea that Craigslist is being indexed on Google.

Joe - Thanks!  You can use your Real Pro Systems template, add a market specific searchable description and a couple of links and I have a strong feeling the Google juice on your website will grow quickly.

It never hurts to know the owner @ BizPrintSolutions.com

Craigslist is one of many directories out there that help with rankings. Good post.
