Why Good Unique Content Needs to Die #SEO #Content http://ow.ly/NiXZc
If we're talking about creating "good, unique content" and are hoping for it to rank in competitive SERPs, we're not setting the right bar. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand shows us what we should be going for instead.

Reposting content online, whether it’s on Twitter, Facebook or any other social network, can be an awesome way to keep your followers engaged. It can bring attention to your brand from those whose content you’re reposting, and it can provide your audience with new content while you get your own content ready for sharing. Best of all it helps break the cycle of “me, me, me, product, product, product… sell, sell, sell…”, a cycle which is unfortunately all too common.

Reposting, sharing, retweeting can all be seen by your audience as an endorsement, so be careful what you repost. Don’t automate the process, and definitely read / watch / listen to everything you share or you could end up embarrassing yourself or your brand.

In the video / audio below I give an example of how I encountered this over the past week.

PuSHPress is Conflicting with PowerPress Podcasting Plugin - I love the WordPress forums - Hours saved!

https://wordpress.org/support/topic/pushpress-is-conflicting-with-powerpress-podcasting-plugin
Just an FYI, it seems PuSHPress is conflicting with the Blubrry PowerPress plugin. When I publish a post the Podcast Episode information gets stripped out. The posdcast info stays intact when the post is saved as draft. But disappears when the publish button is clicked.
