60 + Places For Your Web Profile

I started this list very quietly in 2009 for some friends who were trying to build links back to their sites and profiles... It's been updated from the original list of 32 places you could link from to over 60.  I did not address Facebook in this list - because everyone has their own strategy for that. 

Although many of these sites are GREAT tools, and HUGE networking opportunities - This particular list is more for link building than anything else.

Here's how I suggest you use this list:

  • First Set up a spreadsheet with the following columns  Site Name    Login    Password    Unique URL    Profile Picture?
  • Unique URL (or vanity url) would look like this (for instance) http://www.linkedin.com/in/eleanorthorne  It's important to have this list handy, because some places allow you to list where people can connect with you! (saves a ton of time)  Ditto regarding do you have a picture there... updating your Avatar is tons easier if you know where it is!
  • Try to complete 2 profiles a day for the next 30 days, filling in the spreadsheet each time.
  • Remember that when the profile asks for your web address, or blog address, you can put in ANY URL you want people to land on in that space!!  You can list your Activerain Profile Page if that's what you want people to see!
  • The links below should take you directly to the place where you SIGN UP.
  • If you have other links (especially LOCAL ones), suggestions, or find that a link does not work PLEASE leave a comment so I can continue to update this!

That's a Great List!  I'm re-blogging and suggesting this now!

Posted by Joshua Harley, CEO, Tech Geek, Innovator, Disruptor, US Marine (Fathom Realty) over 6 years ago

Great data base information for web exposure!  Thanks for the post!

Posted by Kelly Wuthrich, Eagle & Meridian ID Real Estate (Silvercreek Realty-Eagle, Meridian, Boise, Kuna, Star~IDAHO) over 6 years ago

Lovely gift, Eleanor.  Thank you.  I am on some of them, but many I have never heard of.  Deep linking to different pages on your website is effective, as well.

Posted by Virginia Hepp - Mesquite NV REALTOR, Mesquite NV Homes and Neighborhoods - Search MLS (ERA - Mesquite NV Homes For Sale) over 6 years ago

Very nicely done, Eleanor!

I was rather hoping for a gift of a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg, but this will do quite well.

Posted by Mike Jaquish, 919-880-2769 Cary, NC, Real Estate (Realty Arts) over 6 years ago

Mike - I am giving up Chocolate for Lent, so you'll have to settle for Jelly Beans!

Posted by Eleanor Thorne, Equity Resources 919-649-5058 (Equity Resources) over 6 years ago

What a great list, and what a lot of time and effort you must have spent on it.  Definitely a keeper!

Posted by Mimi Foster, Voted Colorado Springs Best Realtor (FALCON PROPERTY SOLUTIONS ) over 6 years ago

Eleanor, Eleanor,

While I appreciate your devotion and discipline, I don't think I signed on for that sacrifice.....

But, jelly beans are good, too!

Posted by Mike Jaquish, 919-880-2769 Cary, NC, Real Estate (Realty Arts) over 6 years ago

WOW!  Eleanor, this is an awesome gift!  Hope you don't mind if I share this with my client base! After Easter, I'll be sending you some chocolate bunnies and Cadbury eggs!!

Posted by Patty Keller, AnotherMe - 770-414-9393 - RE Virtual Assistant (AnotherME, LLC) over 6 years ago

Wow, Eleanor, That's some list. I read Patty's reBlog and had to come tell you what a great list you've put together!

Posted by Connie Harvey, Realtor - Nashville TN Real Estate (Pilkerton Realtors) over 6 years ago

Eleanor-This is awesome, Thanks!

Posted by Joseph D. Federico, Eastern Massachusetts Real Estate (Donahue Real Estate Co.) over 6 years ago

Eleanor - Thanks so much for this.  It had to have taken forever to put together!!!  Have a wonderful week and hope you get lots of Chocolate for Easter in your basket!!!

Posted by DeeDee Riley, Realtor - El Dorado Hills & the Surrounding Areas (Lyon Real Estate - El Dorado Hills CA) over 6 years ago

Eleanor, what a great resource, thank you!

Posted by David O'Doherty, Clayton NC Homes, Raleigh, NC (Raleigh Realty Inc) over 6 years ago

Good grief Eleanor - that was a ton of work to put that list together!  I've "suggested" your posting and bookmarked your hard work.  Thanks.  So, with all these Easter wishes - I guess I'll change it up a little and wish you a Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Posted by Mona Gersky, GRI,IMSD-Taking the mystery out of real estate. (MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC) over 6 years ago

Eleanore,

 

Way to go! You are always a wealth of information for agents expanding their horizon!  Let's always keep each other going by staying ahead of the curve! 

I have my ideas about VOW implementation vs. IDX, niche marketing, etc.  Take care!

 

Posted by Tracy Santrock, Raleigh - Cary Realtor/Broker In Charge (Fonville Morisey/Santrock Realty Group, Inc. ) over 6 years ago

Dear Eleanor,

Very generous and very "ActiveRain" post.
The most wonderful thing for me about AR is how people reach out to assist one another!  This would make a great challenge now that the 31 Days of May are almost over!

Have a happy day -
Lynn

PS ---
Did you include REDBIRD? If so, I guess I missed it! L.

Holy moly what a list and what a gift! thankyou. I could kick myself becasue years ago when FB, Twitter & Active Rain first came out i signed up for profiles and promptly forgot about them. Catching up is a difficult, time consuming thing but a very valuable one.  Thanks for the heads up I will put it on the daily radar.
