Seo real estate and new business go hand and hand. Many realtors have websites but nearly 95% of them get no new business from them. The key to making this happen is to first have a good website that is formatted to lead generation and giving your possible clients good information to keep them engaged on your website. One of the biggest reasons people do not get into real estate seo is the pure cost of it.

One of the first things when laying out your new homepage to your real estate website is pick the correct title tag “H1″
When choosing your h1 you always want to place it at the top of the page and it always should be your most important keyword.
For example Monterey Real Estate www.monterey-realestate.net the h1 is at the top of the page and is the most important keyword of the website. Each page can have 1 h1 and it should always be unique for the selected page.
Make sure you remember to put your H1 and H2 on every single page of your real estate website. If you look at this site for Scotts Valley Real Estate for a good example every single page on the site has a correct H1 and H2. Take your time and build it correctly from the start to finish.
When choosing your H2 it normally should be in the center to lower of page. This will be your 2nd choice of keyword. Choosing the correct title tags helps your website tell google what your heading topics are. It is a must to do this correctly and start your website with the correct on page optimization.
In previous posts we have explored many different software choices when its comes to building your real estate website. Here is an example of building a Connecticut Real Estate html based website. I do not know html coding very well so I decided to use a program called Adobe Dream Weaver. When laying out the home page its not very difficult to start a good site. The only time things get tricky is when you decide to add in a IDX feed from the MLS. This website took me about 1 hour to lay it out.
Later in future articles we will be going over IDX feeds to populate all the newest homes to hit the market. HTML is a nice change to the website world do to the fact 70$ of agents choose to use the wordpress sites.
When starting your homepage one of the most important thing is to copy your code and place it in a notepad doc so when one makes mistakes they can revert to the perfect copy of code without trying to figure out where the mistakes have happened.
In the next few weeks we can continue on this project and add some back page info containing all the cities in Connecticut.
