Google Plus Is Not Just Another Social Network

Why Real Estate Agents Should Use Google PlusIf you have followed me here on Active Rain you know what a big fan I am of Google Plus. In my opinion there is not another more powerful tool for someone in the Real Estate industry to be using besides having your own blog. What so many Realtors fail to realize is that Google Plus is not just another social media platform.

One of the things I hear repeatedly from Realtors spouting on here is that they don't have time for another social network. I can certainly understand that as time is valuable and there are only so many hours in the day. Many of you use Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest and others in order to be visable online. These are all important social media sites for a Real Estate agent to participate in no doubt.

What I want to tell you however is that all of them pail in comparison to Google Plus. Why you ask Bill? The answer is simple Google Plus is not just another social network but an integration with Google and search. As Realtors we all strive to be on the first page of Google do we not? You are all writing countless blog posts here and on your own personl blogs to achieve that goal correct?

This is where Google Plus comes in. None of the other social networks can put you on the first page of Google like Google Plus can! This statement alone should be enough for you to reconsider your thought process. If time is a factor then my advice would be to quit one of the other places that suck up your time!

If you want to learn why what I am saying above is right on the money then be sure to read Why every Realtor should be using Google+. Let me be clear up front and let you know I did not write this fantastic article. It comes from a very respected member of the SEO/Social Media community. The author is Mark Traphagen who is a Google Plus maven. Mark is one of the foremost experts on Social Media marketing and specifically Google Authorship and ranking.

I was thrilled that Mark agreed to write this article on my blog. This article doesn't just apply to Realtors but everyone in the Real Estate industry period. Actually anyone who owns a business could benefit by claiming authorship of their online content.

You owe it to yourself to read this article. If you want to increase your online visibility today, take the time to read the article. Trust me - I know you will be thanking me because there is nothing better than you can do for your business today!

If you make the leap of faith and join Google Plus be sure to follow me!

Bryan - we all have to play by Googles rules. Nothing we can do about that.

Thanks very much for the compliment Mike. Google Plus is the premiere social media platform in my humble opinion:)
