What social listening tools do you use ?

I use the +mentionโ€‹ tool found at bit.ly/mention4u

Read this then think about your own social media listening strategies, and evaluate other social media listening tools before deciding on which #SOCIALLISTENING TOOLS you will use in your social LISTENING strategies.

Social listening is a very big issue, and it even has an influence on your #SERP or Search Engine Results Pages. This influence comes in the form of better depth of tread for your #SEMANTICFOOTPRINTS, for your desired set of keywords, that are inserted into the <HEAD> section of your blog and web pages, when links to these digital assets are included in your comment streams as part of your #LINKBUILDING STRATEGIES.

Most folks do not include this in their thinking around link building, but links to your digital assets from within the social media comment streams carries an awful lot more weight than most realise, especially when your SEO TEAM has taken. The time to explain the power of cross platform marketing within the social media environment where posts with good comment streams are marketed in other social media platforms in a manner that it introduces new entrants to the conversation and keeps the comment streams active for more than seven days.

Any social media conversation that is sustained for seven days or more seems to get rather nice flows of SEO JUICES and improves the SERP of the original web page or blog post that was used as a lead to generate that social media conversation. This is really powerful link building tactic, where you can use other folks conversations in very powerful ways to add value to your own online content. It does how ever require that you remain on topic and discuss relevant issues that add value to the conversation where you add a link to your content in the comment streams.

This is really powerful, but does require some discretion, and you do need to be topic specific, and ensure that your comment in the comment streams makes good #SEMANTIC sense as well as adding true value to the conversation in question. If you are an author, publisher or content creator, and use a profile that search engines can link you to the content where you discuss semantically similar or semantically connected content , then this is even more powerful as it adds true value to your personal #SEMANTICFOOTPRINT . This improves your #STFSEOVI or Semantic Trust Factor Search Engine Optimization Value Indicators rather substantially, and has a knock on impact of lifting all your content, where ever you have an input as an author, publisher or contributor, considerably in the SERP's.

This is powerful beyond telling, and I suggest that you do the experiments yourself, as there are many so called SEO EXPERTS who have no clue about the Google Humming Bird algorithm which is the main peanut in the packet when it comes to #SEMANTICMARKETING. These so called SEO EXPERTS will shoot down and attempt to villify me for saying this, so do the checking yourself. Do a little social listening, find a conversation in your niche that is ongoing, and older than seven days, then comment with a link to one of your social media assets that expands that conversation in meaningful ways, and test the results e dry day for a week.

PS. Have a web page or blog post on mind before you start and check this page in the SERPS regularly every day for a while before you do this experiment.

#4u2gofishing we are busy trying to get the beaches open to reasonable motor vehicle access.....

This is going to be a big issue with lots of head wind from a number of sources, but at the end of the day somebody needs to explain about the economic losses..... About 1.500 000 000 Rands
What is the annual cost of implementing the 4x4 ban within the Elepehant Coast ?
Sun rise on the beach There is so much documentation out there discussing the NEGATIVE ECONOMIC impacts of the 4x4 ban, but it appears that these have not been read by the folks on the ground within the #ISIMANGALISO wetland park and surrounding rural areas...

Should government departments be held economically responsible for community losses caused by their neglect ?

St. Lucia along the Elepehant Coast of KZN South Africa took a very serious hiding when the 4x4 ban was implemented way back in 2002.

According to KZN TOURISM more than 20 000 folks lost their jobs due to the knock on impact of domestic tourists being alienated and made to feel most unwelcome within the coastal zones of the Elephant Coast. see this document on KZN Tourisms web site .... http://www.zulu.org.za/userfiles/1/file/ForIvestorandResearcher/Research/Occ%20Papers%20PDFs/Occ%20paper%2020%20Legislation%20on%20the%20Use%20of%204X4's%20on%20Beaches%20.pdf

The #IWPA or iSimangaliso Wetland Park Authority promised that their plan to bring extra international visitors would off sett these losses, but hind sight has showed different.

This problem needs to be addressed at the highest levels, but politics in South Africa is a strange affair, where racism plays a very big role in determining who gets heard and who gets shown the door....

solar power is the way to go, but some folks are caught up in the petro dollars stories....
China installed 10.5 GW solar in July 2017 ALONE, more than the total installed by France, India and UK in their entire history. In the first 7 months of 2017 China installed over 35 GW. US total solar capacity is 43 GW, India/UK 10 GW, Japan 46 GW, Germany 44 GW, France 7 GW, Australia 6 GW, Italy 20 GW. Only 10 nations have total solar capacity above 5 GW, and China just installed 10 GW or 2 times that last month alone. US installed a mere 2 GW in the first 3 months as seen at http://www.seia.org/research-resources/us-solar-market-insight, possibly 4 GW first 7 months. China already has about 500 times more electric buses than the US, now it looks like their solar installation is going to beat US solar installation on a per capita basis too.

See why (eco๐ŸŒŽ+public health๐ŸŒˆ+โ˜ฎetc reasons) i installed โ˜€๏ธ solar panels equivalent to planting 322 trees โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/fRXCoB36DdD and why i drive an electric car equivalent to planting 382 trees (if the oil car would be refilled weekly) โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/HN9dbDavUzz. If your panels produce more electricity than you use, you get free charging for your car too, like me. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ
