Social Media Profiles + Tools + Apps

Back in the day, I used to think it was a savvy strategy to be everywhere on the social web. That was then, this is now.

When I inspect my SumAll dashboard or drill down on GA to see my social hub metrics, its glaringly obvious the days of be everywhere was a flawed concept.

These days, LinkedIn, Google+ Twitter, SlideShare, Pinterest and FB are more than adequate to share and be shared on the social web.

The Buffer App and Friends+Me and Scoop.it take care my cross posting routine nicely so that I don't have to spend nearly the time it once took to curate and syndicate killer content from some of the best bloggers in the business. 

I can't and won't kick Quora, Listly or TSU to the curb like I did Ello and I've weaned myself from the be everywhere model and maybe so should you?

Its pretty clear why you want to have a fully populated and optimized social profile on the top social networks. Posting social updates on your top socials is commonplace these days. Knowing what tools to use and how to use them is becoming more important. Social content marketing is not just for big brands anymore. SMB's must up their SMM game to stay in step and effectively compete in their niche markets. Here's my top socials, tools and apps I...

Increase Your Online Visibility in The Stream

Knowing how to increase your online visibility in the Google+ Stream or in the Twitter stream or even the Facebook stream can take a lot of time and effort given the enormous amount of content and noise level to contend with. Now that Google and Twitter are best pals again having a Tweet show up in the organic SERP's in nearly real-time will probably be a challenge for most SMB's. I'm thinking that using a combination of a Q&A framed headline with a semantic angle might be a good way to test how an article, video or deck can find its way to a page 1 SERP so long as the accompanying content is quality stuff and speaks to the user's issues and concerns?

That's a good idea +Al Remetch  I wonder how many John Doe consumers would know to do that (or) are you suggesting the tip to influence the SERP vs. test for real-world scenario?

I'm thinking if I can create/curate content and get my pages (WP article, YT video, SS Deck, Tweet, Plus Post, Pinterest Pin etc et al) to land on page 1 organic SERP, then I might be able to clone it for more competitive queries?

How to Increase your Social Media Presence

Have you noticed your G+ post will usually show up on page 1 for a search query when the searcher is signed into Google and they have added you to one of their G+ Circles? 

Personalized search results are influenced (in your favor) when someone has added you to a G+ Circle.

This is especially handy when your G+ post is a long-tail query and your content is such that you're likely to earn the coveted click through if everything else is in order. Try this, Search for how to use google plus to boost your social platform and notice where Rebekah's post shows up? Top of page 1 right?

How to Use Google Plus to Boost your Overall Social Platform

The biggest benefit of Google Plus is that it’s part of Google and therefore everything that you do helps with your Google search rankings. While the overcomplicated and underused Google Authorship program may not be in play any longer, ranking higher in Google search certainly hasn’t gone out of style.

From +Rand Fishkin, “Better content will outperform more content.” Google uses social signals to decide what is “better content” by the conversations built around your content, number of people that share it, and how you engage with others about your content.

A strong Google+ presence can help more people find your content as your Google+ posts can rank in Google searches.

The Circlecount Follower Map shows where I have a concentration of followers on Google+ and while this is a nice high level overview, the image map I prefer to see/use is the engagement map that comes from the +NOD3x big data feed. Followers w/out engagement is like having a hotdog bun with no hotdog.

SEO is the process of making your web site more accessible to search engines. Google's algorithmic updates the last 3-5 years ("panda" "penguin" "hummingbird") have reshaped the SEO marketing landscape permanently.

Social Media Profiles + Tools + Apps

It seems Google+ is coming apart at the seams and will be broken up into 3 distinct elements and that's OK so long as we can continue to find and follow and engage with like minded people on the new platform.

Hard to say if G+ is dead in the saddle or will it remain a key social channel for the SMB community? Either way, the importance having a presence on the social web won't go away anytime soon.

Which social channels will remain in your fold?

Having a Mobile Friendly Website Matters

We already know https will help get your site ranked higher in the search results. Now we know (hear) that a mobile friendly website will also help get your site to rank higher in the search results.

A quick visit to WMT  https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
enter your home page URL and see if your site is mobile friendly or not?

Users don't have a lot of patience when it comes to speed. Most experts say your page should load in under <3 seconds. 

◄ Page Speed
◄ https Security
◄ Mobile Friendly

All of the above are becoming more important than ever. And don't forget, fast downloading of crappy content won't matter much ;->
