The blog today will be short but also useful – many who have had a website for many years and a deep Search Engine Index like to know what are their most powerful pages. Wouldn’t be also nice to know which of your indexed pages have the highest visibility for a specific keyword or search phrase?
The Geeks of this world use tools like Google Webmaster Tools and conjure such statistics, but let’s be practical it is cumbersome for most Real Estate Agents; so why not learn a couple of tricks that can help you get some insights:
The way you are going to view these results is by first going to Google.com and typing the Operators I will share with you into the Search Bar and pressing Enter.
[Note: replace the word yourdomain.com with of course your own domain. (it sounds obvious but sometime people forget.]
1. Find your Website Most Powerful Pages: www site:yourdomain.com
Example: if Mike Grumbles wanted to see his region’s website most powerful pages he would go to Google and in the search bar type: www site:withexit.com – the index will reveal something like 430 indexed pages ordered by the currently most powerful pages do appear in the index.
Example: if Steve Manley wanted to do the same thing he would type: www site:mysearchforhomes.com – you get the idea.
2. Find your website Most Powerful Pages related of a specific Keyword: site:yourdomain.com keyword
Example: Let’s take Craig Summerall and let’s say he wanted to find the post powerful pages related to the keyword “Lexington SC Real Estate” in his website; he would type in the Google Search bar: site:lexingtonscrealestateguide.com Lexington sc Real Estate
This could be quite a useful tool if say you wish to find out if Google has indexed you for a specific concept; if Shelia Bennett was trying to find the pages that contain the concept “St Helena Island Homes” in her website she would type: site:exitbeaufort.com St Helena Island Homes
PS: another way of finding exact phrases within your website is to add quotation marks as in: site:withexit.com “Real Estate SEO” – this will show you all the pages that contain the exact phrase “Real Estate SEO” in the website withexit.com and ordered by the most powerful pages.
These two seemingly cryptic ideas will start revealing to you your website construct and effectiveness; of course your website on its own is not enough – it is how it fits in the Google-Sphere that matters the most. When you are working on your Real Estate SEO remember to be deliberate and focused; blog once a week; and continue to learn the fundamentals.
