The reward is in the journey, not reaching #1 or #2 on the Leaderboard.  While there's a chance that the position will lead to more possibilities of referrals, the most likely source of new business is writing solid content that achieves the result of making your phone ring with potential clients wanting to buy/sell a home.  Over time, my concern with points overall and my spot on the Leaderboard (both state and Overall) has slipped, and I'm okay with that.  Bill

What is missed, is that when you hit 1 or 2, you ar eon top of the page and therefore seen more often by consumers.  Points do have a value and a reward of more new clients the more active you are.
