Ben’s got plenty of fighting words in his post, If You Can Beat’em, Play Dirty:
The condo blog has risen to become one of the top condo websites in Seattle – it’s #1 in Google’s organic search results for a myriad of condo related keywords and receives the most visitor traffic (per Compete, Alexa and Quantcast metrics) among Seattle-based condo blogs and websites. And, the exclusive partnership with King5.com is a testament to the blog’s reputation. Admittedly, it’s a nice position to be in.
Apparently “someone” was buying Google Adwords on his name. Too funny but not surprising given the downturn in the real estate market. Consumer leads are now more and more precious and I’m sure everyone is willing to do whatever it takes to win. Granted, buying Adwords on your competitors names isn’t an uncommon practice in search engine marketing.
…Maybe we should all just share Google Analytic passwords for a day to see who is really winning at Seattle condo blogging. Though thankfully blogging isn’t a zero sum game.
Meanwhile Scott Thompson of Weber Thompson joins the blogging fray with a blog about their new offices. Hopefully they blog about their condo projects one day.
