Very cool to hear +Social Warfare mentioned on the Social Media Examiner Podcast
Are you a social marketer that wants to better do your job? (http://wfa.re/2AznRks)

"It's the little things that affect your number of shares." - Ian Cleary

Today, we are honored to be featured on +Social Media Examiner's Social Media Marketing podcast (and they use us on their website!) and recommended by both Michael Stelzner and Ian Cleary of RazorSocial as one of five tools that social media marketers need to better do their job.

As Michael and Ian point out, many websites don’t make it easy to share their content, especially on both desktop AND mobile. That's why they both like our WordPress social sharing plugin, Social Warfare.

Here's what Michael had to say about Social Warfare in the podcast:

"The plugin creates social-sharing options that are visually appealing but don’t slow down your site. You can put Social Warfare’s nice social sharing icons across the top of your blog and even where people can see them as they scroll down the post, as Ian does."

"We use Social Warfare on Social Media Examiner (we’re paying customers), and I like the way it aggregates all of the share counts."

One of the things that Ian likes about Social Warfare is how it allows you to add images and custom content to your posts. Ian uses Social Warfare to add portrait-style images for Pinterest so that when someone shares his article on Pinterest, it has a Pinterest-style image and description.

Similarly for Twitter, Social Warfare allows Ian to set up a Twitter image and tweet text that appear when someone shares his content on Twitter. Quite often, articles take the post title as part of a tweet, but the title may not be the best thing to share on Twitter. Plus, you’ll want to share something different on Facebook.

Now, here's the rub. This functionality is important to Ian because he thinks good social sharing can easily double the number of shares on your site. To be good, social sharing needs to work well on mobile, and include the right images and text.

Social Sharing Plugins Can't Innovate, So They're Stealing

You know you're doing something right when your competitors flat out steal your features and even copy/paste your CSS. LOLz all day long!!!

Way to be creative +Mashshare! Completely stole the +Social Warfare user interface. #lamesauce #beinnovative

They do say that the highest form of flattery is imitation. So, consider us flattered. But also equally disgusted.

Thanks for +Andrea Whitmer finding this and sharing it with +Nicholas Cardot, +Jason T. Wiser, and myself. We had a good laugh.

Oh, and isn't +Mashshare the plugin that allows you to enter in fake share counts?

Have you heard of Social Warfare Social Sharing Plugin?
Completely Refactored, Social Warfare 2.1 is a Stunner
Well, from a code standpoint anyways... http://dustn.ws/2en7H3p

After working on a product for a while, you begin to get blind to certain things. When that happens, you need to bring in a fresh set of eyes who will help you see things that you can't. That's what we did with this update for +Social Warfare.

We brought in a consultant to go through our plugin code with a fine toothed comb and tell us where it can be improved. Boy did we get our money's worth!

Read on to see all that version 2.1 delivers.

This is a very interesting new tool Google is testing.
If you are a marketing agency or a small business owner, be sure to keep your eye on this update as it develops
Google's New Social Search Posts Set to Shake Things Up

There’s a new Google social product in town, and it could shake up the world of branded search in a big way.

This new product, Posts with Google, allows brands to publish content directly onto their branded search results pages. It is a sort-of social media/blog post hybrid. It can be rich-text formatted and include media such as images, GIFs and video. Additionally, your posts live on a dedicated brand page, similar to a social media profile page or blog feed.

Have you seen Google's new social search posts in the SERPs?

Google Analytics Quick Tip - and this is VERY important
So I missed +David Kutcher's Public Service announce a few months back and was going through my Analytics account to double check the settings and noticed this little box....

Better late than never

I guess I should pay more attention to David

Today's +Google Analytics PSA: excluding traffic from bots and spiders

Like many people, you've probably been super-frustrated seeing tons of warped traffic from sources you know aren't actual humans. You might even have done some crazy filtering, trying to remove them from your metrics.

But... did you know there is a checkbox setting?

Go to Admin -> View Settings, then check the box under Bot Filtering for "exclude all hits from known bots and spiders"

Don't forget to hit Save!

P.S. please share with your followers if this is the first you've heard about this :)
