The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

Active Rain Settings & SEO Benefits - Very Powerful

Did you know that you are missing out on some SEO opportunities in your Active Rain Profile and Settings?   Yesterday, I did a post regarding  "How To Use Your "My Settings" Page"  I received many comments and quite a few questions.  The "My Settings" link in Active Rain clearly has some great value and benefits to you and your Blog.  There is one particular question that came up by Roswell Ga Real Estate - Nancy Rivera who runs RoswellGaRealtor.GeorgiaMLS.com about an area on the "My Settings" page.

She asked,"Brad - I have a question about #3, if you don't mind.  I used to have something in this box but when looking at my Blog, I never saw what was written there so I removed it and added it to #2 instead.  Is this something that I would see?  If so, where?  Or is this something that Google sees?  Thanks for your time."  MORE DETAILS>>>

What Nancy was referring to, is the "Blog Description Text" Box on your "My Settings" Link in Active Rain.  I did some research and found out that this box is used for SEO purposes.  It is also used in cases where Active Rain displays lists of blog entries, but they don't want to include and show all of the HTML tags and widgets that people have added to their Blogs.  (VERY SMART, these folks behind the scenes at AR.)  This may very well be one of the best and yet most under utilized tool (or section) here on Active Rain!  This is HUGE!!  

                                   

                                                      Active Rain and SEO

What you place in the "Blog Description Text" box is used in the "meta-description tag" on a page.  It is also used when viewing posts from multiple members of Active Rain in one place or location.  For example:  http://activerain.com/blogs, it gets utilized here.  There are probably many of you who didn't even know that this was available or existed...I admit, I didn't.  There are no buttons or links for access to this area of AR, you can only get here if you type in the URL.  http://activerain.com/blogs 

Here's a sample of what it looks like:

                                                      Active Rain Blog Searches

I researched hundreds of AR members tonight, and I was totally surprised at how many are not taking advantage of this.  (Like me, they probably just didn't know)  If you use the settings in Active Rain according to their purpose, then you are more likely to get more out of your efforts and Blogs here on Active Rain.  Half the battle is just knowing this information is available and how to use it.  Well, hopefully, half your battle was just won here today!  Search Engine Optimization (SEO) never hurts anyone, at least not in my experience.  Just be sure to always focus on your content.  This could be one of the more valuable and over-looked areas on Active Rain!!

Which (randomly selected) member is getting the most out of their Active Rain Settings using the "Blog Description Text" box for SEO?  

       

If you guessed Bill Cherry, then you're getting all this, and you are 100% right!  This simply means we all need to review and modify what we've typed into that little box!  I just updated and modified mine before submitting this post.

I humbly suggest that you take full advantage of these tools that Active Rain has to offer, especially when it comes to SEO, or what I'd like to refer to as (Search Engine Opportunity).  You can only get the most out of the things in life that you know about...So when it comes to Active Rain "Settings" and "SEO" Benefits... Now You Know!  :-)

Brad - First I would like to say what a great post again. You have been busy tonight! It took me a while to find it, but I finally figured out where to actually see the Blog Descriptions. I ran through the html on my blog page and I didn't see anywhere, but there was one meta tag that made a strange reference. I wonder if they AR crew has a hidden place that they stash the deceptions. Maybe I am just blind, but really I didn't see it in my blog's html anywhere and it would have to be in the meta's? I will have to Finnish my blog description tomorrow because its getting late. Thanks for your hard work and willingness to share this.

It was great talking to you tonight.  Thanks so, so much for digging until you found answers.  I owe you big time!  The next hour will be spent filling in BOX #3.  Thanks again!

Lisa - this really is awesome to know about.  Up until tonight, I had no idea either, and based on all the profiles I looked at tonight, I can't believe how many others didn't or don't know this either.  I'll have to let this post sit for a bit to catch as many readers as possible.  It will definitely help them!  Thanks for being the first to comment, that's the one that always starts these things off!  LOL!

I originally accessed this post by going to http://activerain.com/blogs.  I didn't login before I commented.  DUH!   Anyway, thanks again, Brad.  You've proved to us all that you're the "go to" guy when chatting in the Rain.

Excellent, Brad. I have been making metatag and description changes in my website but had not done that here. Thanks for the reminder. All done! How are things in your neck of the woods?  Jeff

Jeff - I just had to jump ahead here, how are you doing down there? How close are you to the fires. I heard today about Brian Brady and Jeff Turner, I know there are many of our friends here from AR that are in need right now. How are you?  Everything ok?  Do I need to get into the car and come down there?  I can give a hand if you guys need!  Serious, I'd fly down right away, just give me the word.  I'm in escrow, I put out fires ALL day. (sorry, bad time for stupid humor) I missed the news tonight but am staying up with things at the online news sites, and the posts here.  Let me know you're all ok.  Our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected by the fires down there. This is just terrible!  707 888-6299 if you need me!

Brad -I hope they have enough bookmarks in this place. I just finished implementing advice from your last post, and now I have do more. Just to make sure I understood, I entered the key words into HTML meta tags, and now I have to just write them in the description? Sorry, for the slow up-take of the techno-challenged. When I look at all your blinking gizmos on the right hand side, I know the extent of my challenge. Thanks so much.

Hasn't Google moved away from meta-data towards the info they glean from surfing the site?  I'm certainly not the authority on this, but I would swear that I've read that the big G is trying to keep people from gaming their meta-data and they are not using it so much.  Of course, I think Yahoo and MSN are still utilizing it, but if Google's algorithms are moving in a different direction, I would bet everyone else will follow (that's been the pattern).

Gary - thanks!

Ibi - you're welcome, we all need to work on this stuff constantly to improve 

Sandi - thanks, this is probably one of my best posts for information in months as well

Ulises - glad you found this to be informational and beneficial,  

Jason - I was unaware Brad had posted on this particular issue, I must have missed it. Thanks!

Moe - 100 words is a lot, hopefully your Blog will get picked up by the search engines a bit more now.

Jeff - sure hope you guys are doing ok down there, the news about the fires is just horrible.
If you or any of the other members down there need anything, you know we're her for ya! :-)

Marlene - HTML is cool but not necessary to tell me WOW!  But I would like to know what lucma means... :-)
I'll start my series on HTML in November or December for you!!

Ryan - the only place you will see what you typed in that box is by going up into your address bar and typing in the URL http://activerain.com/blogs.  There are no links to this portion of AR, you can only get there by the URL. It is used for multiple members blogs in one area of AR and for SEO only.  Let me know if you need help.

Nancy - it was great talking with you as well tonight, if I didn't did to find the answer to your question, this would have never been discovered, at least not by me. This post is in your honor and dedicated to you! :-)

Rich - thanks for the new nick-name, " Sponge Brad Smarty Pants" has a nice ring to it eh? :-)

Julie - way to go, it's simple when you know where to go and what to do, glad this helped and was easy for you.

Linda - the more we learn about the things we don't know, the better we get at reaping the benefits. My goal is to help others understand SEO and all the other techno jargon that's out there.  Paying it forward, is Karma's uncle.

Joe - thanks, I'll try not to ever let you down, but one day, like everything in life, I will have to stop.  Sad thing is, that in 100 years, the one thing we all have in common is that we'll all be gone, but hopefully my Blog (and yours), will still be going strong!!  LOL! 

David - that's a pretty TALL compliment...no pun intended!! LOL!  Thanks my friend!

Nick - thanks for the ball park analogy!  If you're going to swing at the ball in life, we always need to aim for the parking lot right? Glad you felt this post did that. Thanks again Nick!  :-)

TJ - if you want to add that phrase to the box, you won't need any commas.  Just for fun I did a google search on that phrase and look what came up:


Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 12 years ago

Darrel - Active Rain is a learning experience just like life.  Some things can be shared and learned, others have to be learned by just doing and experience.  Glad this brought some value to your Blog and hopefully your business. Thanks my friend!! Great to hear from you.

Ann - thanks, one suggestion...vacation means AWAY from the computer you know!! LOL!  I hope you have a great time, be safe, and we'll look forward to seeing your new settings drive you to the top of google and yahoo.

Chris - torture buyers in the winter? Now that doesn't sound like a very good thing! LOL!  I have a thermostat too but it looks more like this...

Kris - you are soooooo welcome, I don't think many of us knew this was there or how to use it effectively!

Missy - someone's gotta do it, better than the bamboo under the finger nails, now that's torture! LOL! Thanks.

Yvonne - the time spent researching this to find a result this could was worth every hour that went into it. The real thanks should go to Nancy for asking the question. The needs of "One" once again benefit the needs of the many! Thank you. :-)

Brigita - let me know how that works for you. I'm here if you need any help with it. Thanks! 

Mike  - no problem.  Glad you got everything updated and in order,  I hope you reap HUGE beefits from thi post and your settings changes! Enjoy!!  :-)

Brad -I hope they have enough bookmarks in this place. I just finished implementing advice from your last post, and now I have do more. Just to make sure I understood, I entered the key words into HTML meta tags, and now I have to just write them in the description? Sorry, for the slow up-take of the techno-challenged. When I look at all your blinking gizmos on the right hand side, I know the extent of my challenge. Thanks so much.

Faina - they have plenty of space for all your bookmarks, no worries.  Regarding entering the "keywords" into the "Blog Description Text" box, this is for an entirely different purpose than what I mentioned in the previous post. This is AR's section for SEO and simplifying the whole "meta-tag" concept for people who may not understand it or it's value.  It also only shows up under your photo if you go to http://activerain.com/blogs which is not accessible from any other place on AR.  Trust me, it's more important to put your keywords in this box than where I had explained before, as I didn't have the knowledge that this was the purpose of this specific "description box".

Terry - thanks, go fill in the blanks and let's see what it does for your Blog and your SEO! Enjoy!! 

Dave - thanks for the comment, I'm glad there are people out there who appreciate the time and effort that goes into a post and a blog like this.  It makes it all worth while.

Jeff - glad it's all coming together for you.  I'll be checking out your blog to see your modifications! Goo job! :-)

Hasn't Google moved away from meta-data towards the info they glean from surfing the site?  I'm certainly not the authority on this, but I would swear that I've read that the big G is trying to keep people from gaming their meta-data and they are not using it so much.  Of course, I think Yahoo and MSN are still utilizing it, but if Google's algorithms are moving in a different direction, I would bet everyone else will follow (that's been the pattern).

Lane - great comment and question.  I'm not really the expert either, but I can tell you that meta-tags are still apart of the SEO tools used by many search engines. In Active Rain, many are getting the SEO from their posts, but not from their overall Blog.  It's like a sub-directory on a website that get's SEO but not the homepage itself.  I think that's all we're trying to accomplish here.  There are some great HTML source members here on AR, and I have not heard what you've claimed to be a real issue yet.  Doesn't mean that tomorrow all that could change. 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 12 years ago

Bryan - don't let being new prevent you from being the BEST you can be.  Thanks for the comment, I'll keep posting if you'll keep commenting! LOL!  I think there's some SEO in that as well! :-)

Christy - Only change what you feel you need to.  Your description may already be what you want or need.  This is mostly for those who have let the box blank or out minimal information.  Always great to have your comments and visits, thanks!!  :-) 

Brian - glad you dropped in too, and thanks for subscribing to my blog. I'll check out the links you included in your comment too. Just be careful when doing that on other members posts, many of them consider it spam and they'll delete your comment. Thanks my friend!  :-)

Brad - I thought that was what the search engines display when they list your site on google.  I went in and fixed mine and added some tags.  Thanks for the info. 

Maureen - it may show up there as well, but this is a sure thing here.  By fixing and adding some tags to your settings, it can only help, it sure won't hurt. Thanks Maureen

Brad, I had thought a major source of SEO came from the tag clouds we create.  From now on, the Blog Description Text box will be forever known as Box #3!  I have some questions about this but will ask you off-post.

Al - those keywords only show up if you're viewing the Blog roll.  It will appear under your photo on the right hand side. But the SEO for your entire Blog is in that box.  See the screen shots in the post above, it shows the different text that each members used. 

To see a real time check, just click on "Blogs" at the top of the screen, then click on "More" at the bottom of the page and you'll see what I'm talking about. This is the only place your SEO keywords will show up where you can actually see them.

Let me know if you need some help or get stuck with this.  :-)

Brad, you did it again.  I think I tried this and it didn't work.  I will go back and try it again.

I'm going to go get a screen shot to show you where this shows up on AR. Most people never see it because they rrely look at these pages, but I'll be back with a screen shot for ya'all.  :-))

STOP HERE!!! 

THIS IS HOW YOU CHECK TO SEE IF YOU DID IT RIGHT!!!


Here's a screen shot to see where your SEO text on your Blog will show up. Just follow the instructions on the image below.  This is the only place it will show, not on your profile or your blog, only on the screen below:

Thank you very much Brad!  I followed your easy tutorial and posted the blog description and saved it.  Because of my widegets the blog description is not showing up under my picture.  Does it have to show in order for it to work?

Your advice would be very much appreciated!

Posted by Mirela Monte, Myrtle Beach Real Estate (Buyers' Choice Realty) over 11 years ago

Mirela - it will not show up on your Blog page where your widgets are. It only shows up to the search engines and when you are in the Blog Roll view. To see the Blog Roll view, just click on the "Blogs" link at the top of the page, and then click on "Show Full Posts", that's whre you will see your additions. See the image I added to the comments 7 comments above this one, it's a sample to show you where your description will appear. :)

Great tip. I went out and changed my settings immediately. Not easy to come with 100 possible keywords for SEO. 60 plus words will do. Better than zero.

Posted by Kevin McGourty (Realty ONE Group) over 11 years ago

Kevin - 60 words is plenty, definitely better than zero my friend. Hope it helps!  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 11 years ago

Brad, thanks for the tip! I actually did this some time ago, but in looking at my blog again, I think I may need to make some changes to better place myself with the words that I use. ActiveRain has some great SEO and we might as well take advantage of it to push ourselves to the tops of our markets.

Posted by Birmingham Alabama Real Estate, Stephen Wolfe (LivingInBirmingham.com) over 11 years ago

Stephen - every little bit helps. We do have quite an audience with google and some of the other search engines.  Updating and making changes regularly can actually be a good thing.  :-)

Brad, Thanks for the great information, I totally do NOT know what I am doing, but I followed your instructions for My Settings Page, since I know NOTHING about SEO, etc., I used your 2A with 10 days, and 2C, using the keywords that are on my website, did I do this correct?  I think I'm really glad I specialize in Real Estate, I don't know about this tech stuff.

Have A Great Day

Brad - I am trying to add the google meta tag to my blog, but google is unable to verify.  The error says that it's looking for the one I pased into my blog description box (the unique one that google gave me), but it's finding something else.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

I am so happy I did read that blog, I am going to make the change right know in my setting.

Posted by Stephanie Perrault, Realtor Associate (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) about 11 years ago

Sheridan - not sure, I would try repasting the code into the second box (the one that allows HTML) on your "My Settings" page.  Hopefully that will fix it.  Sometimes you have to wait a couple days for it to register and kick in.  Let me know if that works, if not, we can take a look at it and make sure you're pasting the right code into the right place.  Thanks.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 11 years ago

Nice job, Brad!  It's nice to get this info now while I'm just getting started.  I think the only questions that are have on on the HTML tags, which I'll probably just refer to my web designer on.  Although, in this market, I should be doing anything and everything I can, myself, to save money.  Delegation is the key to success, but it's tough to accomplish this in a trying market.

Thanks, Brad.  Sorry for the delayed response, but it was a busy, snowy weekend up here in Tahoe.  Let me know when would be a good time to possibly talk on the phone to go over a variety of questions that I have.  I don't mean to assume that you have this extra time, but you definitely seem to be very helpful with all.  Gary Bolen is a good friend and collegue of mine and see that you guys hit it off pretty good....music and real estate.  How can you go wrong, right?

Let me know and I'll get you a shout.  Thanks again ~

Mark - let's push it till after the Holidays, I got family in town, then I'll be off visiting family, we can put some time aside after the Christmas Rush and New Years parties.  Looking forward to it, and if you see the Bolen Brothers, give em a big Santa hug from us, thanks.  :-)
