I would have every person who tries to improve it spend a month working behind the scenes there listing to us whine . . . without pay.

  • Better monitoring for spam
  • Emphasis on Google Juice / SEO 
  • Adherence to the purpose of the platform REAL ESTATE - this means all the rest of the CRAP (non-real estate related is nuked). This might actually help with SEO and Mr. Google's Juice

When I first signed up for AR, I read many  blogs and questions from members about how AR lost some of it's link juice online.  I would like to see AR promote more on social media to the general public and try to get that power back. 

 

I've been a paying member since 2016 or 2015, I would like to see something like one free promoted new listing a month posted by AR to your local area on Facebook or something.  Then maybe charge extra for more AR promoted listings. 

 

More clicks back to AR might increase the power of AR website.  Maybe have a "listings" section on AR as well for new listings?  Something to get the general public to look at AR as the authority in real estate information. 

 

AR has over 31K likes on Facebook and with the new algorithms, they need to use that toward their advantage.  It could benefit everyone, AR would have more traffic - ad revenue possibly?  Users - get more leads or followers?  I'm not an SEO expert by any means, but a good site, good advertising, good members providing lots of info and listings, and lots of traffic is always a Win-Win.
