This is a good question.  I have found that some of my recent posts have not received the traffic so I think I have to re-evaluate the topics I post under!

Larry, under a wide variety of topics as it depends on what the post is about and who the intended audience is.  I am very hesitant to post something under "humor or just for fun" as I was one time chided for placing it there on what I thought was a clever and humorous post!

I post to a lot of different topics. First I have the idea of what I want to write, and then I write it and select the category it belongs in. I post a lot of home buying and selling and local posts. I also do some just for fun stuff. I'm all over the board.

The most is learned from the tech posts... the insertions are done in a round robin of them all. Localism is key to be the local go to for knowledge.

I select the community and topic appropriate for the audience I hope will read.

For example, I do not wish for 'public' to read how to hold a goal oriented open house, so I will be kept within the AR community.

If I want critical review of an marketing idea, I'll post to PUBLIC since I don't market to the AR community and the public is most likely able to reveal to what they will respond.

And if I'm trolling for points, I post where the greatest number of eyes exist.

Good questions Larry, I post mostly to the ActiveRain Community thinking it would have a wider audience.

I do a lot of Home Buying and Home Selling and some local posts and AR Community. When it is a listing, it will go in the buy or sell category so it can be seen by buyers and sellers.

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

Jeez Don Davies, GRI "AshevilleRealEstateTrends.com" I congratulate you on your success.  As a KW agent our culture is one of contribution. I was not advising, just stating my own personal fact that I have in a shorter period of time garnered 6 referrals that netted $40K in GCI.  Lucky me.  Have a great weekend.

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

Don Davies, GRI "AshevilleRealEstateTrends.com"  What a shame you think that. I have had 6 referrals that closed from my friends here on Active Rain.  I think you need to expand your thinking after 6 years of doing the same thing and not getting any referrals, don't you think?

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

This is all wonderful and follows my approach. I post where I most think it is appropriate.  When I have a listing that describes the local market and competition I get confused as to posting it in the Consumer section under Selling or Buying.  Since we all post quite often I am comfortable with continuing to do what I have been doing. Thanks for all these great and personal answers. I love Active Rain!!
