The perspiration and perseverance of the IT and Marketing Groups at the Kentwood Companies has paid off!  Please focus on the attached image here.

2008, 2009, 2010 SEO Comparison - DenverRealEstate.com

Wicked Good!

For a first hand look, just click on the image, but let me give you a brief run down of how things are looking.  New visits up almost 54% in the last 12 months.  And the big one, direct traffic due to name recognition is up also.  Search engine traffic is up 100% in the last 24 months.  This is all great news for the exposure of your real estate.
It doesn’t stop there.  A continually improving internet campaign marches on.  Look for even greater gains through the end of 2010 and into 2011.  This commitment to the internet follows the consumer where reportedly, 84% of real estate searches start.
This brings up an important point.  Previously, a Realtor had the opportunity to dialog with buyers.  “Floor Time” was used to answer buyer telephone questions about a property and enjoy a greater buyer interface.  With the internet becoming so content rich, that interface has gone on line.  As a result, we are tracking the number of times your listed property shows up in a search, how many times it is subsequently viewed, and how long the average time on the site is taking.  This information is very powerful, because it allows us to determine if we are providing the information the potential buyer may want.  And, if they are returning, we know they have found it, and we know if they are sharing it!
Long story short, “the best never rest”.  The commitment to present your real estate to the market and expose it to the greatest number of potential buyers never ends.  As this process matures and the internet commands more and more consumer time, we will become more knowledgeable, and we will share that knowledge with you.
Safe and fun travels over this Labor Day Weekend!

For those of you with an iPhone get excited to try out the new app that just went live about a week ago! If you click here you can view the release that went out over the weekend:

We Are Denver Real Estate

All you have to do is go to the app store either in itunes or on your phone and search “Denver real estate” and you will find the new app. We are the first and only ones to show up for the keyword “Denver real estate” in the app store! In addition to Denver real estate you can also search by Kentwood or other variations of real estate keywords, to find the app. Currently the app asks you to register and after tons of feedback from our beta group we decided that we should take the registration off. So likely within a day or two you will not have to provide any information to use the app. The app will also be available for the ipad in the very near future, as well as the android version of the app that is being developed as I type. We will begin beta testing the droid version within the next two weeks and have it live within a month.

Please take a look and give me any feedback you may have regarding the app!!

Some great reports came out of our corporate headquarters this month, read on:
