I read an interesting clip in the Inman blog about how real estate consumers are searching online. VisiStat, a company that tracks Web stats for brokers, just unleashed a report for 2007, indicating that 62.2 percent landed on real estate sites by typing in the URL, 23.6 percent got there by search, and 16.2 percent by referral links. These stats suggest that it is not all about the search engine. Three-quarters of the visitors to real estate sites arrived because of branding and links.
