We’re excited to present a close look at one of our power users, Susan Nottingham of Nottingham Realty & Rentals, a family owned real estate company that provides property management services for home and condo rentals and sales, as well as house sitting services for Florida beach areas such as Ponte Vedra, Jacksonville and surrounding locations. As you can see, they have a lot on their plate! To top it off, the online real estate market is not only highly competitive in terms of SEO, it is also very dynamic.

All this made for a challenging road ahead when Nottingham Realty & Rentals began using MarketGoo. They were aware there was quite a bit of work to be done and their efforts have paid off!
I found that using keywords and then the system telling me how to change descriptions to better work with those keywords very effective .
