Again on search engine optimization. If you site does not have any 'real' content, then getting ranked on the search engines is not very easy. So, building content and articles is a good way to help get rankings, plus gives your users another reason to visit your site.

So, my question is, does anyone know of a source for content on real estate topics.... such as mortgage info, buying a home, selling a home, cleaning up your credit, etc......

Something like a free RSS Newsfeed would be good, then you would have fresh content all the time. But finding one geared towards real estate has been hard.

Of course I have found sites with tons of information on these topics, but I do not want to copy their stuff, for obvious reasons. But I do want this content!
Any ideas?

Or, are there any of you agents out their that send newsletters or write articles that you would be willing to share? I'm sure we could come up with compensation or credit some how. And of course credit for the work would be given to the authors.

It would be very cool to have a newsletter author ring type deal where several people contributed to the newsletters. Though since I'm just a web designer, and not a real estate professional, I could not offer any content on the subject.

Let me know, just reply to the post. Thanks for everyone's time!

When I started working on a site for realtors I spend some time looking for feeds. I haven't added any yet, because my site isn't to that point of needing content.

I zipped the links/feeds and uploaded them to one of my sites, so feel free to try them out. There's about 10 different news/real estate feeds listed. Maybe one or two will work for you...

I'd be interested in seeing what you compiled. Your link isn't working. Can you fix it?

Also, mortgage content can be found here:

hi all

an idea....you can find / parse news in news.google.com using this script:

http://voidstar.com/gnews2rss.php

then you can use a feed agregator like zfeeder or Carp / Groupper for caching the XML feeds

http://zvonnews.sourceforge.net/
http://www.geckotribe.com/rss/

it works fine

thanks to Jon Roig, green giant, the sandking and the other people for develop a very good aplication like Open Realty.
