With the exception of the multi author blogs that are covering national real estate issues, like RainCityGuide, InmanBlog, BloodhoundBlog and AgentGenius, this ranking really means very little. In the end, for those of us who are real estate practioners supporting ourselves by selling houses, placement on this list is little more than a feather in our caps. The true measure, at least for me, is in my local reach. How am I doing at connecting with consumers in Metro Detroit? Do luxury home sellers in Oakland County seek out my blog, and understand that it gives their homes better exposure? Do home buyers turn to me for the advice they need on their next home purchase?
I will probably never have the traffic, alexa ranking, etc of a silicon valley blogger. Our consumer demographics are vastly different. Yet I know I have much better reach than others in my local market. I’ll settle for that.
Comparing hyper-local blogs to national blogs is irrelevant. It’s almost a valueless exercise. I’m happy for the people who appear higher on the list than I do, but none of them are in Michigan. So, Vlad, how about a list of biggest blogs by state? There are tons of us out there who are blogging for consumers. We have little interest (except when we put on our AgentGenius hats) in blogging for Realtors.
Thanks to Benn for the opportunity to share my thoughts here on AgentGenius. I’m happy to be part of this great group.
