I just noticed on the others that I have a pretty good presence I would think in order for clients to find me but what I did find out is that even though I show up on Realtor.com my presents on Zillows, Trulia, Realtor.com sites it mainly has me mainly in the Waldorf and White Plains area and I get the majority of my business from the Clinton area.  

name revealed about 74,200
name and Real Estate 14,100
name and company (Exit/Exit Landmark Realty) 19,000/4600
name and brand, 4880

So glad I'm in this class, finally.  #Allin

Glad to see that the first result is my website BayAcres.net  next is reneehauf.wordpress and my LinkeIn account also but what I did notice is that I do not have any personal social networking, so I do need to work on that.

I was shocked that after Googleing all four categories, I was listed first on the first page. WOW #1.  I never thought of the importance of my web presence.  But, after this I will have to began actively blogging, seminars, open houses and videos. Everything must now be placed on the internet no matter how small it is.  I was quite disappointed, not with the results, but with myself because alot of my information is incorrect such as Truilia and Linkedin. It's that attitude of I will get around to completing it later and later never came.  But, that has changed because I am only hurting my business which is hurting my success.  And it's hurting my income.  I am so grateful to have learned this process.  This is a key component that I will implement routinely in my business.  I will be checking up on me more often.

WOW! This was an eye-opening research.  I do not have any internet visibility.  First, I am still listed with a past employer from a different industry.  The positive about that is my mobile number is correct so I am still reachable.  In answering the 3 questions, the first two must be answered NO.  I will increase my internet visibility by learning and implementing all that I can during the next 8 weeks.  One of my 2016 goals is to focus on my social and web strategy branding, so this is a fabulous time for me to roll up my sleeves and get to gettin.#WatchOut2016  #RealPropertyDivas

The information associated with my name and my profession is not only very inaccurate but there is a lack of good

 information as well.  Having no reputation is a 'bad reputation'.  Zillow's website says we sold one house last year!  

There are pages still showing me associated with Remax not Exit and this needs to be addressed. My website appears

 toward the bottom of google's first page.  There is a California Remax agent with the name Paul Joyce who appears

 multiple times dominating the google page.  I am competing with someone who not only has my 
name but has my

 profession!  I can see how a company website is very beneficial. I googled the name of one of our 
top producers and

found that he has a very healthy internet presence and his website is with Exit. Good example to follow.  The consumer

cannot see what I do or where I do it; I see inaccuracy and confusion.  My focus is to build a good clean clear foundation

 on the internet, and my priority is this class which I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of. 

I believe that eight weeks from now as long as I follow everything step by step, I will have the internet presence of a pro!

having a company website. I googled one of our top producers whose website is with Exit and has a very good healthy internet presence.  A

clear marketing foundation on the internet. My priority is this class which I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to be part of.  At the end

of these next eight weeks, I expect and will have an internet presence which will be that of a pro!

Under my name I was the sixth name down!! Always felt my name was different, but I found out it's not!!.  As a realtor, My name was listed under several companies I was affliated with, exit was the second listing and my blog with EXIT-which does not exist yet, was listed fourth. My company Exit had my name listed 4 different ways plus FACEBOOK.  I do not have a brand.   Therefore, I feel i have a slight presence for those who look for my name but at this point, it needs help. Due to the old company listing-by the way, I was totally unaware of them before this class, a person cannot detect where I work at the present time. I really need to focus on the information and data I will get from Key's class because when i get it right, I will be able to stand out to the consumers on the internet.

My name individually populated 6,520 results. Those results entailed a mixture of my personal and business profiles.  My name and profession as a Realtor populated 187,000.  My name and company (Exit Landmark Realty) populated 10,500 results and my name and brand populated 90,600 results

Overall, my internet presence help my business because I have a presence on the internet. I would say that I could use more customer reviews. Prospective customers will understand what I do. In order to increase my visibility, I would need to post more blogs and videos.
