If you run a local business, thenyou need to be doing local SEO.This article will cover the basics and give you some quick action items that you can do, even if youre non-tech savvy.

Local SEO is the process of optimizing your business so it shows up in the search engines to people searching locally for your services.

Whether youre a dentist, restaurant, or yoga studio, the only customers that matter for your business are people searching within your city, and because of that, you need to focus your SEO locally where it matters.

Most search engines will have two sets of results when it comes to a local search the organic results and the Local 7-Pack.

Take a look at the image below to understand what I mean:

As you can see, the Local 7-Pack only features local businesses that have signed up with Google (well get into that later), whereas the organic results display the most relevant results across the web. This includes directories (i.e. Yellow Pages), review sites (i.e. Yelp) and of course, other local businesses.

Ideally, you want your website to be optimized for both the organic and Local 7-Pack so that you cover more real estate on the search page.

Sidenote: If youre clever, youll even take this one step further and make sure your business is one of the top listings on Yelp and the Yellow Pages (Yelp is 2nd in the organic results and Yellow Pagesis 4th using the example above).

There are hundreds of reasons why other businesses show up in the search results and yours dont. Below are some action items you can execute right away that will help increase your chances of showing up on the Local 7-Pack.

Estate agent accepting bitcoin

 Bitcoin  Comments Off on Estate agent accepting bitcoin
Dec 212014
 

Sydney real estate agency Forsyth Real Estate has begun accepting virtual cryptocurrency bitcoin for house deposits and property advertising, through a partnership with Australian bitcoin payments provider CoinJar.

The 115-year-old real estate agency on Sydney’s north shore said that it took on bitcoin to offer another avenue for online payment to the influx of international investors and expats entering the prominent Sydney market.

Forsyth managing director James Snodgrass said the agency had become a strong supporter of the bitcoin economy recently, as it allowed overseas transactions with less fees and exchange rate fluctuations.

“Prior to launching, we had discussions with our financial division who outlined the risks and opportunities of bitcoin and we were happy with our findings,” he said.

But the director of Max Walls International Real Estate in Manly, Anthony Walls, said he was not convinced.

“I must tell you I’m very concerned about the bitcoin situation,” Mr Walls said.

“I just don’t need to deal with those [virtual currencies] and I don’t need the grief.”

Mr Walls was referring to the hacking of 850,000 bitcoins from the high-profile Mt Gox currency exchange worth about $US500 million ($548 million) earlier this month. The attack ruined Mt Gox, which was reportedly handling up to 70 per cent of the world’s bitcoin transactions.

“I would need to be convinced and I’d want a whole team of lawyers sitting at the table signing off on it,” Mr Walls said in response to whether he would ever accept bitcoin.

Why There's Confusion Over Valuing Bitcoin

 Bitcoin  Comments Off on Why There's Confusion Over Valuing Bitcoin
Dec 172014
 

Bitcoin presents a new type of nontraditional, highly technical, experimental, and global digital instrument to our already complex world. That fact should not conjure fear. It should engender excitement.

When I caught wind of Bitcoin as a newly minted MBA in the summer of 2012, I immediately scoffed. At the time, one bitcoin was trading at around $10, with a total market cap of about $50 million, which I thought was outrageous. It was a new, unregulated, “imaginary” Internet currency. Even though I initially rejected the idea as utopian, it stuck with me for some time thereafter.

Fast forward to early 2013, when the European banking crisis was reaching a fever pitch and Cyprus was on the verge of the first modern bank “bail-in.” As the bitcoin price began to rise rapidly on a daily basis, and the situation in Europe continued to deteriorate, I decided to remove my “I know everything” MBA grad cap for an “I know nothing” crypto dunce cap. And, boy, am I glad I did.

The more I read, watched, and listened to bitcoin experts attempt to explain the most confusing and thought-provoking advancement since the Internet, the more fascinated I became, not only with the idea of frictionless transactions, but also by the idea of stateless currency.

Given the complexity of bitcoin (economic, financial, political, ideological), there are many topics of discussion that deserve specific attention in their own right. The Digital Currency Council does an excellent job of providing an overview of these issues in its free courses. In today’s piece, we will focus on one of my favorite, and most misunderstood, topics: bitcoin valuation.

Valuing bitcoin: A traditional perspective First, I think it is important to give readers an idea of just how difficult it is to categorize bitcoin for valuation purposes. Unlike equities, bonds, and real estate, bitcoins create no cashflow. Most traditional financial analysis is based on terminally valuing an asset’s or entity’s discounted cashflows in order to determine a fair present value price for those future cashflows. In the case of equities, the earnings of a particular company that are distributed as dividends can be theoretically extended in perpetuity and discounted at current “risk-free” interest rates, thus creating what is knows as a discounted cashflow (DCF) valuation. Since bitcoin has no cashflow, this method of valuation is not useful.

With regard to stocks, thousands of companies in hundreds of industries provide a pool of potential comparables to value companies from a comparative and/or historical perspective. Again, there is only one bitcoin (and it is the first of its kind), so there is no use for this methodology, either. There are “altcoins,” but they are not proper comps for bitcoin. (That is a topic for another day).

Moving to bonds or other interest-bearing instruments, they too provide steady and somewhat predictable cashflows due to the interest coupons that holders of the securities collect at set periods of time. Once again, we run into a problem with bitcoin due to the lack of regular cash payments, though this can be programmed into the blockchain as an added protocol layer. (Again, that is for another time.)

Lastly, real estate projects — at least those purposed for investor profit and not for proprietor dwelling — also produce steady cash revenue in the form of rents and homeowners’ fees that act just as dividends and interest payments. No surprise that bitcoin cannot fit into this category, either, given its currency/commodity-like properties.

So the obvious question is still “What is the value of a bitcoin, and how do we derive it?”

Receiver sought for O.C. Register

 Freedom  Comments Off on Receiver sought for O.C. Register
Nov 072014
 

Two investors in Freedom Communications are asking a Delaware court to put the Santa Ana newspaper company into receivership, saying the owner of the Orange County Register is “insolvent” and beset by “mismanagement.”

The lawsuit by minority shareholders is the latest sign of strife at a company that this year has endured rounds of layoffs, lawsuits, leadership shake-ups and the launching and closing of a new daily paper in Los Angeles.

Abbey Financial and Old Colony 2012 Investment Fund said in their complaint, filed confidentially with the Delaware Chancery Court last week and disclosed this week, that Freedom needs independent oversight as soon as possible.

The investors said the operation faces an emergency “posed by an imminent sale of a significant real estate asset and the financial distress of the company due to mismanagement.”

The complaint alleges that Freedom co-owners Aaron Kushner and Eric Spitz allowed lender Silver Point Finance to have outsized influence over the media company’s financial decisions, including a planned sale of a 14.3-acre plot surrounding the Register’s Santa Ana headquarters.

Initial offers on the site were due on Oct. 22, said Justin Esayian of the Hoffman Co., the brokerage representing Freedom. Freedom didn’t set an asking price but received a substantial number of offers, which it is reviewing, Esayian said.

Abbey and Old Colony supported the land sale a year ago, said Freedom spokesman Eric Morgan. He called their complaint “meritless and unfounded” and said Freedom is not considering filing for bankruptcy.

Morgan said, the court rejected the investors’ motion Thursday to expedite the appointment of a receiver. Attorneys for the investors did not respond to requests for comment.

In alleging that Freedom is insolvent, the complaint said the company has spent at least the past nine months “placating” creditors that have been pressuring the firm “to the detriment of other creditors.”

Silver Point, a subsidiary of Silver Point Capital in Greenwich, Conn., holds the mortgages on all of Freedom’s real property as well as a first priority lien on the company’s other assets, according to the complaint.

Malone Gained Double Tax Break in Liberty Address Shift

 Liberty  Comments Off on Malone Gained Double Tax Break in Liberty Address Shift
Nov 032014
 

Shifting the address of his Liberty Global Inc. from Colorado to London last year didnt just put billionaire John C. Malone in a position to reduce his companys tax bill.

He also took precautions to avoid the capital-gains hit that the so-called inversion would trigger for him and other investors. The day before the deal was announced, Malone — the companys chairman and controlling shareholder — transferred $600 million of his shares into a tax-exempt charitable trust. He avoided paying taxes on his remaining stake, worth about $260 million, by exploiting IRS regulations meant to block a different loophole.

All told, Malone escaped about $200 million in personal taxes, and Liberty Globals U.S. shareholders together likely saved more than a billion dollars, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Hes congenitally averse to paying taxes, said Robert Willens, an independent tax accounting analyst in New York City.

Tax Inversion

As the Obama administration attempts to implement anti-inversion rules announced in September, Libertys strategies illustrate how billionaires and their companies find their way around tax regulations, and take advantage of unintended consequences.

Malone — whose net worth is $7.5 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index — has a history of creative tax-avoidance tactics. Over the years, many of the 73-year-old media billionaires biggest deals, such as buying the Atlanta Braves, have helped his companies to cut their tax bills.

Malone has at least four other charitable trusts, with more than $210 million in assets, IRS records show. Such trusts permit wealthy individuals to use the tax-exempt status of a charity to shelter income. In the past two years, he has also taken advantage of an Irish tax break to buy prime real estate in central Dublin.

Marcus Smith, a Liberty Global spokesman, declined to comment. He directed a request to interview Malone to Courtnee Ulrich, a spokeswoman at another of Malones companies, Liberty Media Corp. She declined to answer questions and said Malone would not comment.

A Connecticut native, Malone runs his growing media empire from his adopted state of Colorado. He recently surpassed Ted Turner — a predecessor as owner of the Braves — as the largest private landowner in the U.S., according to The Land Report magazine. He owns about 2.2 million acres, including more than 5 percent of Maines total land mass.

SEO: The Powerful Sales-Lead Source Most Realtors Have Yet to Tap

 SEO  Comments Off on SEO: The Powerful Sales-Lead Source Most Realtors Have Yet to Tap
Oct 242014
 

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) October 23, 2014

Theres sales-lead gold in website search-engine optimization, but most real estate agents have no effective way to mine it.

That was the most telling discovery from a recent survey that asked 342 North American real-estate agents and brokers if — and how — they used search engine optimization, also called SEO, to uncover sales prospects.

The survey was conducted in August by WebsiteBox, the technology firm that offers do-it-all real estate websites for a $99 one-time fee.

We already know that search is the number-one traffic driver to real-estate websites and that search is way more important than social media, said Peyman Aleagha, WebsiteBox CEO. So, if 90 percent of prospective home buyers search online, and three-quarters of those buyers never click past the first page of search results, then its crucial to make sure your website shows up at the top of those results.

Big Three: Keywords, Coding and Content

Survey respondents who were all WebsiteBox customers and real estate professionals indicated they have a basic understanding of what SEO means: encouraging search engines like Google and Bing to direct interested property buyers to their business websites and sales listings. In fact, 83 percent said they believed SEO to be the most important source of online sales-lead generation.

The WebsiteBox survey results suggested that most realtors are making an effort to comply with best SEO practices: relevant keywords, compelling content, and sound website coding. More than half of the respondents said they already use keyword research, and 35 percent said they employ website meta-tags and backlinks. A respectable 45 percent said they are blogging and posting content that buyers would find useful.

For all their effort, few respondents (4.9 percent) said they generated referrals through SEO. The problem may be that the agents are using the wrong tools. Indeed, 69 percent of the WebsiteBox survey respondents said the tools they have dont seem to get the SEO job done.

Free Speech In Hong Kong, Then And Now

Pro-democracy protesters shout slogans during a standoff with police outside the central government offices in the Admiralty district of Hong Kong on Wednesday. Ed Jones/AFP/Getty Images hide caption

Pro-democracy protesters shout slogans during a standoff with police outside the central government offices in the Admiralty district of Hong Kong on Wednesday.

I’ve been traveling to Hong Kong since 1997, when the former British colony returned to Chinese rule. Reporting on the pro-democracy protests in recent weeks, I’ve been struck by a change in the people here. Many are no longer willing to give their full names when talking about politics and the current protests.

A couple of nights ago I was interviewing a real estate agent in a pinstripe suit on an elevated walkway as police battled and pepper-sprayed demonstrators in the distance.

The man, 27, wasn’t a protester, but supported the pro-democracy movement and explained why. When I asked him for his name, he only offered his surname, Wu. I asked him why he didn’t want to be identified.

“The speech freedom is just fading out,” he said. “I was very confident in Hong Kong 10 years ago, but things change very quick. Everything is getting worse. I have to protect myself at this moment.”

Then I asked if I had interviewed him 10 years ago about politics, would he have given me his full name then?

“Maybe,” he said. “Maybe, yes.”

In the protest tent camp below, I ran across a man named Abe, who was helping to build desks from scrap wood. The main camp stretches across Harcourt Road amid the glass-and-steel towers of Hong Kong’s Admiralty district. Using the highway’s concrete divider, protesters have built an open-air study hall so students can keep up with their homework.

“I have no experience in carpentry,” said Abe, who is Hong Kong-Canadian. “A lot of this is just volunteerism. I see people picking up garbage and I just volunteer.”

Fiscal Policy Institute proposes tax on luxe pied–terres

 Tax Havens  Comments Off on Fiscal Policy Institute proposes tax on luxe pied–terres
Sep 242014
 

Left-wing allies of Mayor de Blasio have come up with a new way to tax the rich by going after nonresidents who buy expensive co-ops and condos that they seldom use.

The liberal Fiscal Policy Institute on Monday proposed a tax of up to 4 percent on 1,556 pied–terres worth more than $5 million each. The tax would generate $665 million a year, the group said.

The mayors office quickly said it was reviewing the proposal.

De Blasios previous attempt to increase taxes on the citys wealthiest residents was shot down in Albany, which would also have to approve the condo-tax plan.

But the new targets of the tax hikers include many foreigners who dont vote.

The graduated tax would start at 0.5 percent for properties valued at $5 million to $6 million, and max out at 4 percent for units valued at more than $25 million.

State Sen. Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan) is introducing a bill to enact the tax Tuesday.

In his report, institute director James Parrott said absentee owners of expensive condos and co-ops should be targeted because they dont pay local income tax.

The owners bid up the price of New York City residential real estate, and since they dont spend much time in these use units, contribute little to the local economy compared to full-time residents, he said.

Brooklyn City Councilman Brand Lander, the deputy policy leader, embraced the tax on extremely wealthy foreigners, saying many use their properties as tax havens.

Underneath all the speech controversies, it's just business

 Free Speech  Comments Off on Underneath all the speech controversies, it's just business
May 102014
 

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

(CNN) — Free speech has consequences — especially when business interests are involved.

That’s a lesson most recently learned by real estate professionals David and Jason Benham, who lost the HGTV show they were scheduled to host after a recording of David Benham’s anti-homosexuality views emerged.

Should the Benham brothers have lost their HGTV show?

After the site Right Wing Watch published a post about the pair and posted a recording of Benham talking to a talk show host about “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation,” HGTV dropped their planned show, called “Flip It Forward.”

“HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series,” the network tweeted after the post went public.

The Benhams aren’t the first ones to lose work over their words. Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned for life from the team’s day-to-day operations and facilities — and fined $2.5 million — for racist comments that were recorded and posted online. Paula Deen became an ex-Food Network host after she admitted to using a racial slur. “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson was suspended after his controversial comments on homosexuals were published, though the A&E show has stayed on the air.

Opinion: What happened to Sterling was morally wrong

Regardless of the platform, the personal, political and corporate have ways of getting entangled with one another these days — particularly when corporations try to maintain very public reputations of welcoming diversity and inclusiveness, says crisis management consultant Eric Dezenhall.

“I defy you to go to a corporate meeting and not hear words incanted over and over again: ‘diversity,’ ‘inclusiveness,’ ‘transparency,’ ‘corporate social responsibility,’ ‘sustainability,’ et cetera,” he says. “If you step out of the narrow margins on some of these issues, there’s going to be a problem.”

Liberty Property Boosts Liquidity Position – Analyst Blog

 Liberty  Comments Off on Liberty Property Boosts Liquidity Position – Analyst Blog
Mar 272014
 

Liberty Property Trust ( LPT ) disclosed a new unsecured revolving credit facility worth $800 million. This replaced an existing facility worth $500 million, which was due Nov 2, 2015. The move is aimed at strengthening the balance sheet and availing credit facility at competitive terms.

This new facility bears an annual interest rate of LIBOR (London Inter-Bank Offer Rate) plus 105 basis points and a facility fee of 20 basis points. Notably, based on its current credit rating, Liberty Property got the credit facility at lower rates compared to the replaced facility (previous rate and facility fee being LIBOR plus 125 and 25 basis points, respectively). Through an accordion feature, the facility can be enhanced to $1.2 billion. Moreover, the initial maturity date of Mar 26, 2018 can be extended by one additional year.

A consortium of leading financial institutions assisted Liberty Property in obtaining this credit facility. Among them, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated of Bank of America Corporation ( BAC ) and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC of JPMorgan Chase & Co. ( JPM ) acted as the joint lead arrangers and bookrunners.

We expect the strategic move to improve the company’s liquidity position going forward. This would position it better to continue to invest in growth needs which go a long in enhancing top-line. In addition, Liberty Property maintains a conservative balance sheet and offers a steady dividend payout to shareholders. As of Dec 31, 2013, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $163.4 million, up from $38.4 million as of Dec 31, 2012.

Last month, this office and industrial real estate investment trust (REIT), reported fourth-quarter 2013 funds from operations (FFO) of 63 cents per share, which was in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate as well as the prior-year quarter figure. The decent results were attributable to year-over-year revenue gains, strong leasing and portfolio restructuring activity.

Liberty Property currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Another better-ranked REIT stock is Cousins Properties Inc. ( CUZ ) having a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).

Note: FFO, a widely accepted and reported measure of the performance of REITs, is derived by adding depreciation, amortization and other non-cash expenses to net income.
