More updates to ActiveRain last night...

By
Education & Training with ActiveRain

Some of you may have already noticed but we made several updates to ActiveRain last night.  Here's a quick rundown of what they are...

1. We added two additional catagories that blog entries may be posted to "Advertising a Listing" and "Other Advertisement.  While we didn't exactly intend for people to use the blogs to post these item, people are.  So by offering specific catagories, we hope it will keep them out of other public catagories such as "For real estate professionals".  In fact it won't allow you to add posts that have been marked as "Advertising a Listing" to the other catagories.

               

2. We added the ability to mark posts as being regional to a specific state/county/city.  We are in the process of building a number of new ways to view information and news by region.  Simply tagging a post with names of the regions wasn't going to work, as well as being hard to understand.  So if you are writing a post that is about a certain region, please select a region appropriately.  While there may not seem to be a benefit of doing it now, there will be a big one in the future...

               

3. We added an archive of blog posts by day.  The main purpose of this was to help search engines in indexing blog posts (less clicks from the front page), but it also is a pretty cool view for seeing everything talked about on a specific day.  It can be found at http://activerain.com/blogindex and is also linked to from the blog dashboard.
