Are There Benefits To Being Number 1?

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Fusion

I have been on Active Rain now for a few months now and have really enjoyed my time here.  I am constantly finding new information on topics I am interested in and have received some excellent feedback from my blog.  I can't help but notice the point structure and that the more you blog, comment, etc the more points you recieve.  As I recently became the number 1 real estate agent in the Saskatchewan real estate listing I am curious what benefit does that provide besides just bragging rights! :)  I enjoy blogging and have done it as a way to promote myself and also learn and develop myself as a real estate agent.  I notice some people on here have hundreds of thousands of points which I cannot even fathom!  Does anyone know the benefits of being number 1 in your area if any?  Thanks!

I have been able to get to the front page of google with my active rain status. This may not sound like much but I am going against "Mark Hawley", famous studio recorder and husband of Tori Amos...

I am number one in my city and I get exactly zero but I like to blog here.  Someday I will get a call I hope.

I am attemtpting to get there!  I fairly new so the climb will be a challenge.  But I hope to someday get there.  I believe the benefit is visibility to the online world.

I have gone from last to 12 in a pool of 114 in 30 days.  When I play around with Google and different searches I find myself on the first page.  In the long run I know this has to help my business.  The trick now that I am moving up is to fine tune my SEO.

I think that it just keeps you active blogging.  Since you say you check your search engine placement you are competitive as most good agents are.  The point system keeps you active so that you won't lose your spot!
