Chicagoland Real Estate Forum and Google +1: A Perfect Match

July 15, 2011

Some things are made for each other: peanut butter and jelly, Oreos and milk, you get the idea. When two great ideas come together, the results can be quite spectacular.

With the release of the Google +1 button, Chicagoland Real Estate Forum may have found the next great combination. To prove that point, we’re asking readers to +1 the site.

What does it mean to +1 something? The Google +1 button is a new way to share articles and websites with friends. It is similar to liking a Facebook page and shows up in Google search results. If you have a Google Profile or a Google+ account, your friends can see which sites you’ve +1’d. To use the feature, you simply have to be signed into your Google account.

By +1’ing pages on Chicagoland Real Estate Forum, you’re providing the staff with great information. It’s sort of like an instant feedback system. By clicking the +1 button on your favorite articles, you can let them know what types of stories you’d like to see in the future. Do you enjoy reading about Chicago events? +1 those stories. Would you like to see more housing news? +1 those pages too. Do you love everything on the site? +1 the home page.

Using the Google +1 button allows you to reap the benefits as well. If your business, community or event appears on the site, you can +1 it and share it with the people in your social network.

So how can you +1 a page on Chicagoland Real Estate Forum? It’s a simple one-click process.
