Connecting the Dots with Carra Riley

By Guest Blogger Pamela Cendejas with Second Self Virtual Assistance

Today’s edition of “Connecting the Dots with Carra Riley“. First of all, we at Second Self Virtual Assistance have to give a hearty “thank you” to Carra Riley, the Countess of the Cosmic Cow Pie. We were privileged to be intereviewed by Carra on her BlogTalkRadio program. We were flattered that she recognized the value of what a virtual assistant can do for real estate professionals. As usual, Carra was very complimentary and generous. The time just flew by. There was so much to cover in such a little time. You can hear the entire interview by clicking the play button below.

Highlights of our interview included:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) means adding keywords and descriptions that utilize key phrases you want to optimize for people looking for a Realtor® in your area. The keywords are what people type in the search bar of Google, Yahoo or Bing to find exactly what they are looking for (for example, kingwood real estate, homes for sale in colorado springs, etc.). After your site is optimized, we submit it to the search engines and a list of directories that Second Self has personally compiled over the years to help increase your SEO. We also link all your social networks, blogs and websites together so that you can increase your “Google Juice”, sending you to the top of the search engine rankings.
