Solid advice from Jason Brewer, CEO at +Brolik

My favorite tip is this one:

Good content: you can't define it, but you know it when you see it?

Well, Isla McKetta helps break it down over at the +Moz blog. Tip: use Isla's framework to analyze your own content.
You already have the skills to recognize good content and optimize a site for Hummingbird. You just may not know it yet. Here's a quick list of what to look for.

Not getting enough reach on your content? Let #influencers come to the rescue.

Check out this great post by +Steve Rayson at +BuzzSumo 
I am sure there are times when Spiderman wishes he could fly. Superheros all have different powers and circumstances determine who is best able to help you. It is the same with influencers. What makes an influencer a good content amplifier? … Continued

5 great tips from Chad Keck:

1) Use Surveys To Find Your Readers’ Deepest Desire
2) Create Conflict And Drama
3) Train Your Readers To Be More Active
4) Create More Personal Relationships
5) Tell Your Audience What To Do

I should probably work on all five, but I think I'll start with items 1 and 3.
Ever feel like your only active promoter is your mother? Use these 5 laws to engage your passive readers and turn them into content and brand advocates.

There seem to be, +Jennifer Page. I've noticed a lot of people posting without formatting on G+...understandable, since you can't format on Twitter or Facebook.

Great tips from Tracy Mallette on how to write content for #Google Hummingbird success.

Courtesy of the +Kapost blog.
Google Hummingbird? Isn’t that, like, so 2013? Well, yes. But Google algorithm updates, or in Google Hummingbird’s case, complete algorithm rewrites, aren’

Guest blogging is not dead!

Read this piece by +Louis Gudema, who shows you how guest blogging SOLVED his #SEO problem.
A year ago, Google’s Matt Cutts and others declared guest blogging for SEO was dead. But the naysayers were wrong. I’ve discovered good guest blogs with links from authoritative sites and social shares still can improve your rankings.

As a content marketer, I spend the majority of time creating content and less of my time distributing it. I'd like to focus more on the latter.

Here's a neat approach used by +Cara Tarbaj at +Wishpond. In short: become a useful resource on Quora and occasionally link to relevant content on your website.
Quora is a great way to drive traffic to your website. We’ve been using the Q & A community to drive traffic to our site for about 3 years now. In the last month alone, I gained 23,000+...

My first article at +The Rouse was inspired by a meeting I attended with +Customer Experience Professionals Association - during a panel discussion, a VP Customer Success said he's having a hard time getting the attention of his Marketing team.

As a marketer, I think this is a mistake (on the part of Marketing).
Why you as a marketer should be spending more time with customers, understanding them and your business through their eyes can be a huge advantage

Agreed, +Smarter Shift - it made me re-consider some of my own social sharing, which at times strays too far towards aggregation. There's more value (I think) I can provide via commentary ;-)
