ActiveRain Launches ActiveBlogs, a Multi-Author Blogging Platform for Real Estate Industry Professionals.
ActiveBlogs increase online marketing power for real estate with easy syndication of blog content and superior search engine performance


SEATTLE, January 7 2009 – ActiveRain (http://activerain.com) today announced the release of Active Blogs, a turn-key blogging platform built for single or multiple authors. ActiveBlogs are customizable, dynamic web-publishing sites designed for the real estate and related industries.

ActiveBlogs allow individual professionals to team up and syndicate multiple types of content from their existing ActiveRain individual accounts to a custom website and url, which delivers innate Search Engine Optimization benefits such as location based Real Area Indexing or ‘Raindexing’.  
The aggregation of continuous, targeted and fresh ‘Raindexed’ content within a single domain from numerous individuals  improves Long-Tail Search Engine Optimization, efficiently and dramatically improving online marketing efforts.

‘ActiveRain recognizes that dynamic content integrated from multiple sources creates the robust experience today’s real estate consumer is looking for,” said Jeff Corbett, ActiveRain’s vice president of Operations and Business Development. “We believe ActiveBlogs provide a foundation to efficiently display this content.”

At launch, individual ActiveBlogs are priced at $19 per month while multi-author or ‘Team Blogs’ will cost $79.00 per month for hosting.  Personalized branding is possible with numerous template options that may be customized to the administrator’s satisfaction.  
‘Real estate related professionals deserve products and services pro-actively designed to suit their unique needs,” Corbett said.  ‘No other platform at any price – including free – offers real estate professionals a better value in terms of ease of use, flexibility and seamless movement of content.”

I was wondering why I never run into my "new paid for Blog" - in search engines? I still always come up as the old blog within activerain. I want to make sure that I am not missing something - is there something I should be doing? Thanks. Nicky Dou

Also - is there a way to customize more than just the standard backgrounds you guys have - like on the other AR Blog (the free one?) Thanks!

Let me get this straight, Jeff.  I am paying you a monthly free for my outside blog http://memphisrealestate20.com and now  in the upper right corner in a prominent visual position is a search box that takes readers away from the blog and my site and directs them to an AR vendor.  Sorry, but that is not acceptable!

Jeff,  sorry for my rant.  I just discovered the widget feature, which, I swear, was not there the last time i looked at my outside blog. 

Is there some place we can go to get updates on what you are doing with the outside blogs, like the widget add, or can i sign up for updates??

When you refer to an outside blog... are you referring to any blog other than Active Rain.  We have a blog on our Point2 website, is this what you mean.

Also when you refer to a "Team" are you referring to a husband and wife that work together.  If so the price seems to high.

Thanks,

I post my blogs on more than one platform. It's amazing to me how many times Active Rain blogs are first in the google search. Active Rain Rocks!
