A big Thanks to Swati who compiled the MOM and post
The seventh OME Community meet-up began with the usual buzz and excitement on a cloudy Sunday afternoon, 31st of October with several new members joining the bandwagon of enterprising professionals aiming big in the Online Marketing & Social Media sphere.  The introductions were quite interesting; people from several industries showed their willingness to embrace the inevitable, web marketing trends vis-a-vis traditional marketing. In addition, experts, students and amateurs shook hands on this unified platform and inquisitively looked forward to a session of learning, contributing & fun.
The next session kicked off with a quick introduction to the OME Community and NextBigIdea, the upcoming business plan competition being organized by the NSRCEL at Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. The open challenge- “Champion of Champions was thrown to all entrepreneurs present in the get-together. From here, Mr. Suresh Babu took on the reins and presented the topic of the month- “Online Marketing in India- some case scenarios” where he emphasized on Ooty Real estate and its Online Marketing success story. The members, mentors, NSRCEL, IIMB, volunteers and attendees are the ones who drive this community; we sincerely each and every one of them for their support.

Ooty Real estate Case Study:

Yesterday we had had realtors who did real estate business in the way we all know so well. Today we have ‘Digital Realtors’ who have taken real estate industry to a whole new high. From high-end websites, 24x7 customer service, comprehensive e-plans, plush brochures, 3D Images, second life, real time videos- this brand new generation of Realtors deal with all their prospects with regal expertise. This transformation from traditional to online digital business was clearly reproduced in the Queen of mountains- Ooty.

Researching the Real Estate in Ooty

Something interesting was noticed during researching the real estate scenario in Ooty. It was noticed that although people want to buy property, but knowledge of the local specialties was lacking. For example, the schools of Ooty, which have high international standards of education and are a part of rich tradition of Ooty were not taken into consideration. Also the provincial wildlife, the lifestyle of local inhabitants, the delicious home made chocolates, the British vegetables cultivated locally- all these attractions had to be refreshed in the minds of people to draw them towards investing money and buying private paradises on this striking landscape.
The central theme thus revolved around- Experiencing the Ooty lifestyle and this triggered quite some investigation and study of the lifestyle of the inhabitants for bringing it out as an enticement to willing patrons.

Steps taken:

The Ooty Real Estate realtors took the following steps:
-          Introducing  the Ooty Real Estate blog which focused on the lucrative local specialties
[] in 2008
-          Launching  the Website and Online Marketing campaign in  early 2008
-          Following the Industrial best practices in SEO, No Advertisement only organic SEO
-          Richly supplementing the website content with 500 different well-researched  key word combinations []

-          Incurring a total cost of  approximately INR 10,000
Website Design, Development: Meena
Web Marketing: SEO, Social Media Optimization by Suresh and Meena

Results obtained:

After 1.5 years (observable within 6 months) of laudable Online Marketing efforts, Ooty Real Estate attained success. The Google Analytics had some critical revelations:
-          87000 visits to the Ooty Real Estate website -
-          89,029 views all-time for Real Estate Ooty Blog -
-          Ranking on top 10 SERP (search engine page results) for more than 40 keywords
-          850 telephone calls to the offices
-          1200 emails
-          75 property visits
-          16 registrations
-          A 100 acres deal with well known market leaders in Real estate from Bangalore

In conclusion, the Online Marketing campaign (SEO) for Ooty Real estate delivered admirable results in terms of acquiring prospective and actual buyers. The blog contributed greatly to provide the much-required visibility as well as exposure to the business and formed pivotal in its current accomplishments.

Also focused on local specialties like:

Keywords should be based on the understanding of user needs. Short keywords help in overall website optimization where as long-tail key words help in SEO; a combination of both should be used and has been used in this case.

10.   Q: Has Google stopped long-tail keywords?
A: No. Google has not stopped it completely but curtailed it to some extent.

11.   Q: How many keywords are too much?
A: Roughly, 200 words per page is what is recommended with 5% of those words containing the keywords that would help in the ranking.  
-          The page title should include the words you hope to be ranked and most importantly the intent of the visitors
-          The Meta description tag should contain keywords and describe the page. Each page should have unique Title and description relevant to that page, and contain 1 or 2 grammatically correct sentences containing the important words.
-          The page title should use <h1> or <h2> level heading tags with keywords
-          Google regards the first sentence of body text on the page as being the most important & hence the most important words should be placed there.
-          Number of keywords depends on the content of the website. The more the amount of text, the better it is for Google to index.
-           A good website should focus on the content-reader rather than search engines. So, unnecessary crowding of keywords should be avoided
