Properly code your page h1 tags. The h1 tag should relate to the title tag you created in the above step. Example: <h1>Grover Beach CA Real Estate</h1>. This should be a short title. Don’t stuff it with too many words. The content in the body of the page should relate to your title tag. So if your title tag is “Grover Beach Real Estate”, make sure the content is talking about Grover Beach real estate. Don’t over use the key phrase in your content but attempt to use it at least once or twice. Add links to your blog and profile pages such as Facebook and LinkedIn, which point to the page you want ranked. Create online flyers that are syndicated and include links to your pages in your flyers. This will help create relevant link backs and help search engines find and index your pages quicker.  There is much more to SEO but the above steps are very important and will help you get started.http://www.classifiedflyerads.com/blog/Basic-Guide-On-SEO/3759/post_details/676/2008-05-01 11:15:52Listing SyndicationListing syndication is a technology that allows you to have your listings or products automatically distributed to multiple places across the internet.  Real Estate Listing Syndication has become very popular with Real Estate Agents because it allows Agents and Brokers to easily distribute their property listings to many web portals that buyers use to search for property.  Job Syndication has also become very popular among employers who advertise job openings on the internet.   There are services out there that will allow you to create a single online ad and automatically have it syndicated to multiple directories and search engines.

The chances of your property listing pages or property flyers showing up in search engines such as Google and Yahoo will increase greatly if you follow the simple guidelines below.Properly code your page meta title tag so it is specific to the location where your property is located in. For example if you are selling a condo in San Diego, CA a good way to code your meta title tag would be "San Diego CA Condos For Sale". Always code your meta title tags on what you think a web user will search for when looking for your type of property listing.Surround a title with h1 tags in your page. Make sure the h1 surrounded title is located at the top of your page and also contains search phrase friendly words. For example "San Diego Condo For Sale" would be a good title tag in your page.Try to place some search friendly phrases in your description such as "Lowest priced San Diego condo on the market" Use hyperlinks with the title coded on your hyperlink. ActiveRain allows you to do this when setting up links in posts. Search engines such as Google will follow hyperlinks and read the title you associated with the link.Don't add too much copy or too little. Too little copy will not give search engines enough text to index and too much copy will be overwhelming to the serps and will make it hard for them to determine your key terms.A lot of website builders on the market today will give you the control of coding your title tags, h1 tags, etc. If your website builder allows you to do this, you should use it when adding all your pages and listings. If your website builder does not have this ability, you can use a service such as ClassifiedFlyerAds.com, which allows you to create single listing sites. This service also automatically optimizes the meta title tag based on your properties city and state. http://www.classifiedflyerads.com/blog/How-to-optimize-your-property-listing-pages/3759/post_details/6/2007-10-24 16:26:35
