New Search Engine Optimization Strategies for 2016 ~ 20172017-10-05T00:06:54+00:00

Dynamic, changing, morphing and evolving – such is the nature of digital marketing. As a firm entrenched in helping Real Estate Professionals, which is one of the most competitive industries with so many competitors, we are constantly working to improve our service standards and quality. Recently we have re-vamped and re-structured our SEO (Search Engine Optimization) as well as the pricing. Here are some of the key changes in our strategy, followed by what is being kept constant as the past.

New Changes To Our Real Estate SEO Programs

We will explain our newer SEO strategies here in the simplest terms possible. We understand that some technical terms can be confusing, and we are happy to answer more of your questions directly should you have any.

#1 – Blog Articles Now Mandatory For Content-Rich Websites

“Content is King” is one of those phrases thrown around a lot – and for very good reason, because it is Google’s mandate to deliver relevant & useful content for their search customers. All of our SEO programs now include a specified number of blog articles by default, because on-site content is hands-down the best way to improve the quality score of your website. Blog articles offer a wealth of options to link to other sections of your website (MLS® search results, or individual listings) as well as link out to reliable 3rd party resources to be of more benefit to your customers (such as reputable news articles, service providers or real estate board websites).

#2 – More Focus on Quality Backlinks Rather than Quantity

There was a time when most SEO engineers would pick as many online directories, public forums & blogs to plaster the internet with backlinks to their websites. Some went as far as creating automated posting software that would hit bulletin boards worldwide for tens of thousands of backlinks to be generated within a matter of days. Others went for paid links – which mean absolutely nothing to Google in terms of how valuable & relevant the content on a website is. These practices fall more under the black-hat realm of SEO techniques, which we have never used. Back in the days we leveraged many more sources for more backlinks (but we never used, and never will use, black-hat SEO techniques), but we are putting less emphasis on the number of links, and more emphasis on the quality of backlinks. Certain directories and online blogs are valid and legitimate sources where we can acquire reliable backlinks that have meaning.

#3 – More In-page Content Throughout (not just the blog)

Outside of the blog, we aim to place more unique text content to describe neighbourhoods, buildings, property types/subtypes in order to boost the actual quantity and quality of the text content throughout your website. When walking a precarious line between clean & minimalist designs VS content-rich pages, our design/development team’s expertise really shines to achieve a balance of both. Our photo galleries for listings/buildings can have detailed descriptions and information, as well as many other sub-sections of our sites.

Things We Have Been Doing That Will Continue Steadily

Some core elements of our real estate websites that naturally improve your position on Google are steady, solid and rarely-changing because they are based on solid fundamentals, and here are some of the core features or continuous improvements.

URL Structures, Meta Titles and Descriptions

Even our MLS® search result pages are very well optimized in its keyword-rich URL structure that well-defines the listing(s). For your own pages, our team (or yourself) have the ability to fully modify the meta titles & descriptions to make it more relevant and easier to read. This has been one of the most core functionalities for all Brixwork websites for years, and will continue to be so.

Load Speed & Mobile Responsiveness

Our core software is constantly tweaked and improved to reduce bottlenecks, decrease page load time, as well as show up better on social share results. Some of the notable improvements made throughout 2016 already include (these upgrades help all of our clients, not just those on the SEO packages)

  • Image load time for MLS® Reciprocity listings
  • Thumbnail & mobile generation
  • Code & architecture load time (framework files are minified further)
  • Off-loading between multiple servers

Server Security & Reputation Management

Entire servers & IP addresses can be blocked or deemed as spam from 3rd parties. Our code is improved constantly to be more secure & stable, and we vigilantly monitor against hackers and intrusion attacks. We also have a strict policy to leverage professional 3rd party email services such as G-Suite (formerly known as Google Apps) to avoid our own servers being infiltrated with spam or losing reputation due to a 3rd party security breach.

Things You Can Do To Improve Your Presence On Google

Apart from what our engineers and content generators can do, there are many other things each Realtor® can do in order to improve their rankings and presence on Google.

  • Ensure that your social media profiles (Instagram, LinkedIn) have links to your website included.
  • Share sections of your website (generate a specific property search in neighbourhoods) and copy-paste to share those results on your website.
  • Find cool listings on your own website (whether your own listings, or MLS® Reciprocity driven) and share on your social media.
  • Customize your own property listing descriptions with headings & longer paragraphs (above and beyond what the MLS® system allows you to)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: The SEO Package prices have increased a lot! Why is that?

A: SEO is a relative game, and the amount of time & effort put into generating content on websites has significantly increased across the board among all competitors. Therefore we need to put in more than double the effort for our SEO campaigns to be effective. Think of the average time of Olympic sprinters decreasing each decade – the standards always go up as a whole. Our pricing is competitive and in-line with other competitors in the SEO industry.

Q: How long does it take to rank well for specific keywords? And are there guarantees? 

A: Any properly run SEO campaign actually cannot make solid guarantees, as it is all relative to what the competitors are doing. That being said, traffic increases can be detected as early as 2 months, and up to 1 year may be required to really have impact on the bigger keywords. The bigger the keywords, the more competitive it is.

Q: It says that blog articles are now mandatory as part of our SEO campaigns. What if I do not have a blog? 

A: Since SEO is a longer term commitment, with a 3+ month commitment we will install a basic blog for your website at no additional cost.

3 Stand-Out Instagram Posts for Real Estate Agents2018-12-17T21:32:52+00:00

Instagram is extremely popular as the second most used social media platform after Facebook (it is also owned by Facebook) and its instantaneous mobile reach to your audience is incredibly valuable.

To Help Our Realtors Capitalize On Instagram & Facebook

We’ve all seen the “Happy Holidays” or similar postings throughout Instagram, but many of them are poorly designed, or regurgitated from an meme-creation website, and it lacks the finesse you deserve. This year we are introducing our own line of pre-designed holiday postings to be fully branded to your own specs (limited to Brixwork subscribers only – if you wish to sign up with us, click here).

Branded Holiday Instagram Postings For Real Estate Agents

We have thoughtfully pre-designed some Instagram post images that can be altered to quickly fit into your brand and business. To avoid too many duplicate copies, we are limiting these for use of Brixwork clients only, and no other entities are permitted to use these custom designed elements without written permission from Brixwork.

Why Instagram?

Instagram is one of our most recommended methodologies for our real estate agents for better social media brand awareness because:

  • The sporadic nature of access (no bloat – purely images/videos). More people quickly check their Instagram feeds between tasks, while in line, during lunch, etc.
  • The visual nature of it (more focus on photos rather than its descriptions) means it’s better for branding propagation.
  • Easier to be discovered – the Explore feature on Instagram is more often used by people to find fresh new media, giving you more exposure even to those you are not connected to (yet). This is the stark difference between Instagram and Facebook, as Facebook posts are available to those who have you as a Friend already (unless you run a paid/sponsored ad).
  • Easy to share to Your Website & Facebook – Our in-house developed Instagram widget automatically posts all of your Instagram photos directly on your website. You can view a demo on Nick Neacsu (West Vancouver Realtor®). As you post your pictures on Instagram, you can immediately share it to Facebook & Twitter as well. Time saved is time earned.
  • The user base is still on the climb, meaning the potentials are even greater. Since the introduction of Instagram stories, many users are expected to ditch Snapchat and use Instagram even more!

Social Media Is About Consistency

Constantly being noticed is what Instagram, Facebook and other similar online outlets do for you, and social media marketing is a long-term game of brand recognition rather than immediate advertisement.

Misconception:

“Through this post I should get a lead. If not, it’s ineffective.”

The Truth:

“Let people know who I am, what I do, and how much I love doing it, and be remembered as the go-to person for real estate.”

Facility Upgrades & Expansion

Our production force has grown to double the size since a year ago. In addition to Rebecca & Jovan (Graphic Designer & Web Developer, respectively) we now have Cindy-Lynn (Graphic Designer) and Bruno Fontanella (Web Developer) to help you with your needs. Our office has also been significantly renovated with new computers, new monitors & mounts, and of course more workstations to accommodate the larger workforce.

FAQs:

Q: When was the last price change?
A: 2014 was our last rate change to our labour rates, while monthly fees have remained the same since 2012.

Q: Does the price change have any relation to USD/CAD exchange rate?
A: Partially yes. Costs of computers as well as the web based software we use to keep ourselves organized has gone up due to the weakened Canadian Dollar.

Q: I’ve became a subscriber very recently (less than 6 months ago) so it seems a bit soon to raise my prices, no?
A: While our labour rates will increase for everybody at the same time, we can definitely keep your monthly fees the same for the first six months of your subscription. We need you to email us your domain and the date of your first subscription invoice or the invoice number (if it’s less than 6 months ago) so we can freeze the price until the 6th monthly fee point.

Q: When’s the cut-off for design of marketing material and/or new website customization at the old rate?
A: Any orders placed on or before (confirmed by email to design@brixwork.com) April 18th (Monday) can be processed under the current rates, since we operate on a 1 business day turn-around to start on inbound inquiries. Our billing cut-off is April 20th, after which point the new labour rates will become effective.

If you have any questions please email us at support@brixwork.com and we will be happy to answer them.

Popular Pages & Not-So-Much On Real Estate Websites in 20152019-02-12T19:36:09+00:00

Popular Pages & Not-So-Much On Real Estate Websites in 2015

Almost two years ago we discussed page view distribution on real estate websites to see where most consumers click once they reach our Realtor®’s websites.

. . .

Still All About Listings & Photos

It’s 2015, and we have a more up-to-date set of numbers, although the core messages remain the same – listings, listing photos & the homepage remains the most consistent performers, while viewership of buyers/sellers, or neighbourhood guides remain relatively flat. However, we were surprised to see the rise of page views allocated towards those informational pages even though the changes were minimal.

Pageviews are still heavily focused on listings & listing photos, like it or not.

There are a few factors we believe affects this:

  • Last time in our 2013 post, we didn’t include the page views that landed on the “Not Found” pages as part of listing views. When a listing is no longer on the MLS® and removed, those pages will then go to our custom /notfound pages. With these excluded from the number from the listing page portions, the numbers may have been slightly off.
  • The sites we used are some of our higher-performing benchmark sites, which means their visitors may be more active, and also those pages may be viewed by more marketers who are targeting new SEO customers (our customers are solicited by shady SEO service providers all the time).

Using This To Your Advantage

Serve to your customers what they want to see. Here are some ways you can leverage the photo-centric, or product-centric short attention span of the general public you face as a Realtor®:

  1. Share listing detail pages, or sets of listings by certain criteria on Facebook or Twitter (i.e. “Today we want to feature all 1 bedroom Condos in Yaletown under $400,000 for first-time home buyers..”).
  2. Make sure your homepage has listings as a slideshow, or links to listing pages. This can either make or break your bounce-rates from your homepage.
  3. Make sure photo/video of each home is the first thing on individual listing detail pages.
  4. While you are at it, please start using Instagram. It’s a visual, short-commitment medium that can do wonders for brand marketing on social media. We have our own in-house developed, ad-free Instagram widget available. Check out Terry Osti’s website footer for an example.

*Note on the above statistics

  1. These statistics are based on 6 of our more active & established sites, randomly selected out of a candidate of 20 top sites based on high level of traffic.
  2. Naturally this does not reflect all of our websites, nor the industry standard. Individual websites may experience different results.
  3. These statistics exclude page views to blog pages, as not all sites have it, and blog pages get direct traffic from social media shares, so we felt they do not represent the average visitor behaviour accurately.
  4. The dates used for this research was July 14 ~ Aug 13, 2015, from Google Analytics data. Different times of the year may show different proportions.

Brixwork Version 4.1 Release with reCAPTCHA V22015-08-12T03:40:40+00:00

Today we are proud to announce the release of Brixwork version 4.1 with many new enhancements, including the usage of the new reCAPTCHA V2 API for human-verification of your email forms to fight spam. Of course, going from version 4.09 to 4.1 involves more than just this upgrade, and we’ll get to those updates later.

Bye Bye to The Old CAPTCHA

old recaptcha that was hard to read

Can anybody see what those letters really are? And this is an easier one.

It was hard to read, even on a good day, with the best eyes, or the best reading glasses. However, it was the lesser of the two evils we had to choose… Once spam starts to flow through some of our websites, it could have put the entire server under a spam black-list, jeopardizing lead-generation capacities for all of our real estate clients! Having a Google-provisioned solid anti-spam measure was a must.

Hello, reCAPTCHA Version 2.0

The new version makes human-verification much easier, so you can get more leads from your website. In fact, in some instances, based on mouse movement or previous browsing history of a specific machine, often the check can be bypassed altogether! In cases where the machine does not immediately determine that the viewer is safe, it will pop up a simple image-based question like this:

anti spam measure for real estate websites

Image-based human verification for fighting spam

Other Upgrades

Brixwork version 4.1 also packs many other upgrades culminated over the few months of development, and here is a list:

  • Multiple main-images for pages now available (while this won’t affect existing sites, it opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for tight-knit designs with great visual effects)
  • Buildings list label sizes fixed.
  • Double slashes accidentally added when typing in URLs would pull up wrong pages, and that has been fixed.
  • Setting the listing brokerage/office on self-loaded listings is now easier.
  • And many other internal fixes to optimize processes and reduce bugs.
Why We Use Google Drive at Brixwork (and at home)2015-06-17T23:06:44+00:00

Brixwork Real Estate Marketing uses Google Drive because it saves time and leads to increased efficiency, and makes project management between multiple team members easy. 

Benefits of Using The Cloud-Based Drive System

  • Anything on Google Drive can be viewed from any internet-enabled device if you log in
  • You can easily access your files on-the-go with the Android or iPhone app
  • If your devices are lost, stolen, or damaged, all your files are still safe and accessible
  • It’s easy to share files with clients directly from the cloud

How Realtors® Can Use Google Drive & Share

  • Client listing files (photo, data, floor plan, etc.)
  • Domain registration info (where you bought it, what the login is)
  • CRA/IRS account numbers and login information for tax reporting

Making Your Personal Easy With Google Drive

  • We’ve all had those moments of frantically searching for an old invoice to claim a warranty repair on an expensive device. Google Drive serves as a digital backup and can solve the problem of misplaced receipts by scanning and storing your receipts into the cloud drive.
  • You can also use the system for personal things such as storing your eye glasses or contact lens prescriptions, along with booking logs for vacations.
  • Private insurance information & claim instructions can be stored online.

We recommend using Google Apps with your website domain so that your email is set up under your domain for a professional presence (such as daniel@vancouverrealtor.com), and you also get google drive storage & calendar/contact sync. The Brixwork team can set up the websites & domains to behave as such.

Need Help Setting Up The Cloud System & Training?

Darci Laroque offers consultation with setting up Google Apps calendar/email/contact sync between iPhones/iPads/Laptops, as well as cloud drive & CRM set up for more efficient workflows. Visit Darci’s website for more information at http://www.darcitalks.com.
