Google owned a 65% share of U.S. Web searches in April | Technology | Los Angeles Times.

Google led search-engine traffic in April, with 65.4% of Web searches taking place on Google-owned search sites, according to the research firm ComScore.

The Mountain View, Calif.,-based company’s search traffic, while dominating, was down slightly from March when Google-owned sites took up a 65.7% share of the market, ComScore reported.

Coming in second place last month was Yahoo, which accounted for 15.9% share of online searches, up 0.2% from March, the research firm said.

In third came Microsoft search sites, which were also up 0.2%, taking up a 14.1% slice of the market, ComScore said.

In a distant fourth place slot was the Ask Network, which nabbed a 3.0% share of online search queries, followed by AOL which had a 1.5% take in April, ComScore reported. Ask and AOL’s April numbers were each down 0.1%, the report said.

Yahoo and Microsoft’s search sites are powered by the Microsoft Bing search engine. When Yahoo and Microsoft’s search sites are combined, Bing powered a 30% share of the online search market.

Like Microsoft, Goolge too powers searches for sites it doesn’t own, one of them being AOL.

When AOL and Google’s performance is counted together, Google’s numbers rise slightly, accounting for 67.3% of searches in March and 66.9% in April.

Ten Reasons Why Real Estate Professionals will benefit from Social Media | RealtyGo_blog

Doesn’t the image depict the way real estate is headed in our near future, if not already a necessity for most Agents to survive today when working with tech savvy clients, banks and/or any third party entities requiring analytics or reporting tools to reveal consumer patterns, as well to prove a real estates agents prior success in this tough market.

There are lots and lots of Real Estate Professionals that still aren’t quite convinced though when it comes to Social Media especially when it applies to them. It could even be as simple as the “Fear of the Unknown”. Its easier to dismiss new practices and stick to old traditions, but what if you could keep your traditions of real people networking in your community, which is still a very valuable trait to have, and update your online presence with out doing anything different then your use to. Would you take advantage of it. RealtyGo offers agents, brokers, real estate professionals, Vacation home owners and for sale by owner the ability to offer potential buyers, renters, investors and new customers easy engagement tools using modern day technology. Your Smartphone is a good example, place RealtyGo’s QR Codes anywhere you want to offer consumers information about your real estate listing(s) (flyer box, rider sign, real estate signs, print ads, digital ad space, like craigslist, zillow, Realtor.com) and allow the end user to choose their method of contacting you. This doesn’t mean you have to take you phone number off your signage or change anything your currently doing, RealtyGo  just makes it easier for you to interact and communicate, update, showoff, edit and promote your real estate listings and business using Mobile phones and the World Wide Web. Don’t think for a moment that by not offering consumers the means to get immediate information that you are some how helping your business, end users can google anything and find all the information they like about any real estate listing by searching online. It may be better for you and your clients if you show consumers information you want them to see at first look,like updated photos, remodels that have been done, positive information, because if you leave it up to the end user to go searching out in the wild wild west, we call the internet for information on your real estate, they may find old, non relevant information, old pictures, a previous owner or lister and even get distracted along the way and forget about your real estate listing all together. Make it easy for potential buyers to get immediate information and communicate with you, auto schedule appointments and leave notes about your property, which they can later review and use as a point of reference when making a decision to move forward.

  5. Gives consumers and other professionals a better idea of WHO they are dealing with – Transparency!
  6. You will benefit from the Community style flow of information and find out things you otherwise wouldn’t have, enabling you to update your business model.

How to get leads in todays real estate market…, The industry has come a long way! | RealtyGo_blog

“The Future Of Real Estate Lead Generation – Building Lead Generation Machines”

….Darin Persinger

UI

We wanted to post this article we received from Darin. This is a great article and really reminds you how far technology has come. Darin talks about building a machine of sort for lead generation. For us at RealtyGo we believe the internet is the “Machine” and interacting with it efficiently can increase your day-to-day activity and make you more efficient in your business practices. RealtyGo offers Unified Communication which is a set of products that provides a consistent unified user interface and user experience across multiple devices and media types. RealtyGo offers easy to use UI (user interface) as well as Best SEO (Search Engine Optimization) practices to promote your mobile and web based real estate listings like no other company can.

Enjoy the article and tank you Darin for the email and  your personal experience.

I got my real estate license in 1997.

Things were different then. Much different.

My real estate lead generation consisted of phone calls to expireds and fsbos.

I did print ads and I literally had to take the ad to the newspaper because we couldn’t fax, scan or email the pictures.

Real estate lead generation was all about “spray and pray.”

The Future Of Real Estate Lead Generation

The future is now and the future of real estate lead generation, I believe is about building machines.

Lead Generation machines.

The great thing about inbound marketing is that it is a machine.

You build the machine, aka a blog post or social media strategy, implement it and it can run on its own. When you wake up in the morning, you have leads from people that registered on your IDX or people that opted-in to your On Demand First Time Home Buyers Webinar.

Sure, back in 1997 I might have had a voice mail waiting for me in the morning on the office voice mail system, because of an ad I ran in the paper. But every week I would have to run another ad. Every week another trip to the newspaper. Every week another few hundred dollars spent.

Building A Lead Generation Machine

What I did in 1997 was truly grinding it out. I wasn’t really building a business. Sure I could create systems and processes, but if I stopped showing up, the leads stopped showing up. I was in the business of real estate lead generation. You shouldn’t be.

You should be in the business of building lead generation machines, and then let those machines go and do the real estate lead generation.

Back in 1997 if someone sold 100 homes a year, they were a balla! Now  you hear about many real estate agents selling 200, 300, 500 homes a year. Sure some of it is because of big REO contracts, but its because they have built lead generation machines.

Technology, the internet and social media have giving you an opportunity to building lead generation machines.

The question is: Are you taking advantage of this opportunity? RealtyGo – Your Real Estate Listings Best Friend!

Also, keep in mind my belief is you can automate tasks, you can’t automate relationships.
My suggestions is go to work on the building of lead generation machines and focus on the relationships those machines create.

Stay Productive,

Darin Persinger

Bing, now has 27 percent of the search engine market and is quickly gaining on Google, according to Hitwise.

Bing, now has 27 percent of the search engine market and is quickly gaining on Google, according to Hitwise.

Comment from an independent individual – “I bought a laptop for my wife about 6 months ago and set up my mother’s laptop today so that she could print 🙂

Anyhow, both had a Bing toolbar preloaded. I’m wondering if the increase in market share has to do with other factors other than consumer choice…”

What’s the verdict? is this post true or false? Microsoft has made no such announcement.
