DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR 10 BEST ACTIVERAIN POSTS WERE IN 2010?.... You Too Can find out how you came out!!!

All of those listed got at least 2564 views and the top posts got 6000 to 7000 views!!! I included the clicks too because they really do matter to the results!

Congratulations on the high rankings! I'm not there, at least not yet! I am working on it, though.

Posted by Liz Lockhart, GRI, Cape Girardeau Real Estate (Riverbend Realty, Cape Girardeau, MO) almost 8 years ago

Liz: Well, forge ahead---don't be afraid to just write your brains out--and your heart too!! There are wonderful people here on AR who are just waiting to see what you have to say! Good luck with it and good luck with the New Year too!

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Paula,  Congrats!  I am going to need to spend some time studying this--my highest rankings don't come up to your knees.  I'm moving up in my state rankings (#59) after starting out at about (#342) in March.  There is so much to learn, but I'm enjoying it.

Happy New Year to You!!!

Posted by Fred Cope, Looking For Homes With A Smile (Reliant Realty in Nashville, TN) almost 8 years ago

Fred: Please use them as you will--the funny thing is, the ones I thought would be great, not so much! But the ones I just buzzed off the top of my head--now those are the ones that get noticed!!! Why is that, I wonder???

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Wow, those are some amazing stats.  Congrats.

Posted by Debbie Gartner, The Flooring Girl & Blog Stylist -Dynamo Marketers (The Flooring Girl) almost 8 years ago

Debbie: Thank you!! I am very surprised and proud of my ranking and my scores! When I started to review them I was thinking I would find a couple of posts with 1000 to 2000 views---then I saw the results and blamo! I am amazed--good luck to you on your posts---keep plugging away and you too will get there!! :) 

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Wow!  I am very impressed, Paula!

Wow..Paula! More than 7000 views! (I am little 'J' - because I have not had that many views...and now I'll try to learn how to increase the viewership for my posts - I always want to learn from others and this will be a great beginning for me..)

Goood Morning Paula, Wow 7,000+ views on one post ~ Congratulations. I have bookedmarked you top ten to read. And looked up your post "Smaller is Better" with over 12,000 views simply awesome.

Praful: I have found that the posts that get the most views are those that are covering a current "issue" or news story that reflects a very strong point of view...if you have time to read the posts you will see as I did: there is a common  thread of eye popping title and newsy topic in all the highly viewed posts....anybody's posts that contain those features are usually highly viewed and clicked on!

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Happy New Year Paula and congratulations on the great stats.  I am pretty new to AR so I have a long way to go to get to those levels.  But I love a challenge!  I too have bookmarked the post and will be reading your top 10.  Have an awesome 2011!

Posted by Vance Booher (Re/Max Select, SRES) almost 8 years ago

David: Thank you so much for triggering the idea to look back!! I had NO idea, myself, of how many people are reading my posts! This is like a shot of adrenalin for me and I would encourage all members to do this exercise in confidence building! Thnak you again and Happy 2011 to you and yours!!!

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Vance: I thank you so much for bookmarking the posts--I loved writing them and I love even more that I can share them again this way---read on and enjoy as well. Have a very Happy and prosperous 2011!!!

Hi Paula - You have written some amazing posts!  I knew there was a reason I had subscribed to your blog!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) almost 8 years ago

That rocks!!!!  Great job on the views!  It would be interesting to see the comments for each of those as well.  Wait, I can just click through!  :)

Posted by Chris Alston, Silicon Valley, California (Chris Alston (Keller Williams Realty, Silicon Valley, California)) almost 8 years ago

Chris Canfield: thank you for the compliment and for subscribing to my blog! Have a Very Happy New Year and much success for you in 2011!

Chris Alston: Thank you for reading and "clicking through"! Have a great 2011 and much success to you in your blogging!

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Very impressive numbers, Paula. In 2010 one of my goals was to incorporate Active Rain into my daily life; in 2011 it's to find the right focus. You're obviously well on your way! Congratulations.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Helping make your real estate dreams a reality (Compass) almost 8 years ago

Lottie: Thank you; I appreciate all my fellow ActiveRainers input on this matter!!! I did the same thing you did for 2010---I made sure I made an entrance on AR each and everyday...it made a big difference in how I blogged as a result. I made a commitment to blogging also and hit my mark there, as you can see. Because I was on the site, I read more posts and made so many more comments---and I found it so stimulating that blogging took it's natural course and I went to town!! Good luck with your focus this year---I am sure you will do very well because this is what it takes to get it done! (In gained sveral pounds by doing this though--soo this year I am including a recommitment to working out too!!!) :)

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Paula, I'll add to the clicks on the ones I've missed. Great Job!

Posted by Ellen Caruso (Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty) almost 8 years ago

Ellen: You are such a good friend! I have to go check out your blog too and see how I can help you out!!! All kidding aside, I was very surprised to see my views and clicks....I never imagined that they would be so high. It is an incredible exerciseif you are up for it---you must have tons of good posts since you are so prolific. Good luck in the New Year--I am very optimistic about 2011--it should be a good year for us because of the very special areas we are in. Happy New Year!

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Wow Paula, that is really impressive. The one thing I noticed isthat you have some great headlines, obviously great content, and that having the posts re-blogged numerous times really took these to the next level. It seems like the re-blog feature is extremely powerful for everyone and perhaps a worthy topic for a future post.  I am so glad I caught this post because I haven't read much from you and apparently have been missing out. So count me in as a new subscriber and I look forward to reading more of your gems this year.

Posted by Dan and Amy Schuman, Luxury Home Specialists (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) almost 8 years ago

Dan/Amy: Thank you so much! I am glad you like my headlines--sometimes I go back and change a headline if I feel it isn't right--headlines are the single, most important thing after content!!! Now I have to go and check out your blogs too!! Don't you love it here on AR?

Posted by Paula Hathaway, REALTOR, LBA, ...The Most Informed Agent In The Hamptons! (Douglas Elliman Real Estate) almost 8 years ago

Very impressive numbers, Paula. I've a long way to go.
