Real Estate Video SEO – You Should Do This If You Want to be Successful
Real estate is a fabulous way for ranking videos. If you are a real estate agent, you probably have a few properties with sole selling rights. Create a video for each property. Optimized the video. Include a call to action and links in the video description. Add social bookmarks and web 2.0 properties. For more difficult to rank keywords or phrases, add some authority links. That’s all. The video will show up on the First Page of Google Search and slowly climb to the top.
Why Showing up Your Video on the First Page of Google Matters?
People who are looking for a new house will type the house address in the google search, example: “Water Villas Kovan Road” or “Water Villas at Kovan Road” to find the nearby schools, nearest transit station, closest shopping center, playground for kids, restaurants, bars, and pubs etc. When your video is ranking on that page, they are going to watch the video and most of the time your video is the only one on that page.
Do you see the Power of showing up your video on the first page?
If you haven’t started creating a video for the houses you are selling, it’s time to do it. Videos are 10 times more likely to be watched than advertisements on newspaper or other platforms. Start looking at what your competitors are doing with videos. Trust me, if done right and aligned with your content marketing priorities, you will win.
