A "Localism Tip" and How to Leverage the Search Engines
by John Occhi, Hemet CA Realtor
Hemet CA Real Estate

The weather in Southern California has been very cold the last few days and we have had some very light rains in Hemet.  Obviously though, other areas received much more, than what we have in Hemet CA.  You see, there is snow in the mountains that surround us and it looks beautiful.  The air is clean and brisk and the mountains are just gorgeous with the fresh fallen snow - at very low elevations.

I set out with my digital camera to capture some of my favorite shots around town and capture the beauty that can only be captured after a fresh rain.  Now I'm no more a professional photographer than I am a professional SEO guru, but I think I did pretty well.

So, I come home to my computer and start uploading to Localism -as a way to help dominate my community long before it goes active.  I have already seen amazing results with the search engines just with my blog, so I know once Localism goes live - I will be in a very powerful position.

As I uploading the pictures, first to the state page and then the county and then the city and finally the different community pages I am thinking about the way I have searched for pictures on line.  I realize that Google has a whole search engine dedicated to looking for pictures, based on the keywords used to describe them on websites - typically a caption.

I realize that every picture on Localism has a link back to my blog and I know that every search return Google Image generates, not only does it generate a thumbnail of the desired images but they provide a link back to the source page, where the original image was found.

Therefore, the more images I load on Localism, the more links will be coming to my blog and the more likely I will climb in the search results.

So now my brilliant deduction is to make sure that all the images I load have the right keywords so they and I can both be found.  Now, I wont be as tacky as putting my web link in the description, but I will make sure that my city name as a minimum is included and any other appropriate keyword I can use.

I don't want to take credit for this observation - it's just that I figured it out all on my own and makes perfect sense to me.  One more very powerful reason why Localism is just going to rock the search engines as soon as it is released on the public.

John,  I think you are right on the money!  I have been taking local photos with three benefits; increased exposure on the Localism site as it becomes a important site, the value of the links with Localism and Active Rain, and I am also starting to add many more photos to my websites and other blogs!

John:  You are a real blessing and inspiration.  Got a question tho - any reason you can think of for why I frequently get a message "You have timed out" when I'm in localism?

WOW - this is an old post - before Localsim even went live.

I sponsor SAN JACINTO, CA - but to be honest I have been here and gone ---back and forth with ActiveRain over the past year or so and have forgotten more than I remember - and to be honest, I can't even figure out how to access Localism anymore...

Sorry

John...

But I am determined...
