Here’s a little real estate “fun” for those searching for real estate in Portland, Oregon.
Enter “Portland Real Estate” into Google and you’ll find sites and ads for Portland, Oregon, Portland, Maine and Portland, Texas. Texas also has a New York, Venice and Florence. The PortlandRealEstateBlog ranks on the first page. The same is the case if the same search is run in Yahoo.
