Lethbridge blogs are one tool I use to stay current on information on Lethbridge. I try to keep an eye on my community Lethbridge Alberta. Partially because it is good for business, but also because it is great to be the sort of guy who knows what is going on in the Lethbridge business community. Often it is the sort of information that can help a client make a smart move based upon future developments.
One of the things that I utilize to keep up to date on Lethbridge news is google alerts. I won't go into the details of how or what I do, but suffice to say that when local stuff happens on the internet I have a fairly decent lead time on the events. I think everyone should do this with their community.
Anyways, back on the topic, I try to follow Lethbridge blogs, both business and personal. Suprizingly for a community of over 80000 people, there are very few who have an internet presence and even fewer who have a blog. On a weekly basis in Lethbridge I would say that there are only a dozen active Lethbridge blogs, including my own www.lethbridgerealestateblog.com
A couple others are professional photographers, a few stay home mommies, and a very few business people. I actually have a suprizingly large number who read this blog. Most don't comment, only a few stay in touch regularly, but the rest of you would be suprized to know that I know who you are.
You see, while you are reading this blog your IP address, your ISP info, your unique computer identifier and specs, are all recorded and used for statistical marketing and tracking purposes. Same sort of thins that the big fancy websites do.
This enables me to see how many local visitors I have, how many from across the country, which cities, etc. Tons of business applications for this but also a lot of personal info too. I am able to see and record the frequency of visits by my girlfriends mental ex husband 'the deadbeat drunken dad' ( Hi Wayne!) , his trailerpark family, even my business competitors who stop here daily in hopes of learning something. These websites track all sorts of great info. Pretty slick isn't it?
I really enjoy this stuff. Blogging, statistics, tracking the traffic, SEO, etc. I would do it even if it wasn't good for business. I even help several friends and fellow AR members get their plan into action so they can do the same thing. If you are interested in how it all works, what you can do with it, etc just give me a call and I would be glad to chat with you about it. If you have a Lethbridge blog and don't think I have visited it, give me a call and I will check it out.
