7-Eleven in Australia ridiculed for inconsiderate Facebook meme


Australia's 7-Eleven isn't in a good place right now

The convenience store and petrol station chain posted a meme to their Facebook page in an attempt to connect with the young'uns and it really blew up in their face, according to Fairfax Media.

The meme in question is a photo of someone being treated to a lovely dinner outside a 7-Eleven store, with a Slurpee and donut as the main course. The caption reads, "When pay day hasn't come but you want to spoil bae..." which, following the reaction to it, could nab the coveted award for Best Way to Get Yourself Fired for 2015. Read more...

Understanding Real Estate SEO

Real Estate SEO
Real Estate SEO

Internet Marketing

In the competitive world of real estate, getting noticed is sometimes harder than the actual sale. One of the best ways to get noticed and land those sales you need is by using the internet. One such process would be to use SEO, or search engine optimization. SEO is often done through the use of keywords, these keywords can be included in advertisements, reviews and more. Search engines will then link you and your business to these keywords, giving you a higher chance of getting noticed by potential customers. SEO for real estate agents should be focused upon a few keywords that work to lead possible clients to your website. Examples of such keywords include:

– Real estate agent in [your location]
– Homes/Houses/Condos/Apartments in [your location]
– Experienced real estate agent/broker

Real estate SEO regularly involves long-tail keywords. These keywords are short sentences in essence, such as shown above. They serve the same purpose as shorter keywords but provide more information. This allows search results to be narrowed down, which gives you a better chance of showing up more frequently in search results. SEO is a great way to drive visitors to your website. Most (if not all) businesses use SEO to help create a pool of potential clients.

Choosing Keywords for Real Estate SEO

You should always choose keywords that describe what you do and your business. For example, if you are a real estate agent in Miami, one of your SEO keywords could be “real estate agent Miami.” This would narrow the results down and give your website a better chance of being noticed by search engine users. For SEO to work properly, you should establish the correct accounts and have your own website or blog that search engines and other websites can link to. You’ll want to use certain words in your website that search engines could use when a potential customer searches for your services. For instance, if you include the words “real estate agent in Florida” alongside high-quality and meaningful content, search engines are more likely to show your website when someone searches for those keywords.

SEO for real estate agents is often a much needed way to stand a chance within the industry. For SEO to work consistently, you must continuously produce content that uses said keywords. Search engines prefer fresh content, so if your website does not regularly upload new content, search engines will begin to feature other, fresher content. An active website is more likely to get more hits than one that hasn’t been updated in months.

Search engine optimization is a wonderful tool when used correctly, and helps millions of businesses from all over the world receive the recognition they need to become and remain successful. There are many services that can help you begin using SEO correctly, though it’s also possible to learn the process on your own. Always choose the correct keywords that suit your businesses, and ensure that content using these keywords is of high quality at its core, otherwise your results may be ignored, or worse, removed. Patience is key. SEO takes time to begin working, but once it does, it’s definitely worth all of the time you invest in it. Get started using SEO today, and watch as new clients begin to roll in.
