2010 is over, and we look forward to the recovery of the Tallahassee Housing Market. While today is the first weekday of 2011, let's take one last look backward to see which blog posts were the most popular last year. The top 10 real estate blog posts for 2010 gives me an idea of what our readers most enjoy seeing at the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, and I will use this as a reference for what is written here in 2011.
Long time readers of the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog will not be surprised that I monitor our traffic (statistics) on a very regular basis, in fact, I do so more than two times each day. I like to know what is popular and where our traffic is originating. Just as old brick and mortar businesses used to ask customers "what brought you in today?..." to determine marketing results, we do the same traffic-source analysis on our web site so that we can continue growing our online progressive marketing operation.
Our busiest day in 2010 was May 5th. We had 11,889 pages viewed on the Tallahassee Real Estate Web Site on that day, and nearly 4,600 visitors! Considering the relatively small size of the Tallahassee community, we are proud of the results we have achieved with our internet marketing strategy.
Of course, we would not have had these great results without our readers, to whom we are grateful for your return visits each time. It is our readers who determined the top 10 real estate blog posts for 2010 with their visits. As always, please give us the feedback that is so important to guiding the content on our real estate blog.
