Get Your Content Featured in Strategic Social Networking -
And A Reminder of our Community Guidelines!
I know how hard some of you work to create the content you share here, and with Google's new Pinned Posts feature, we can now reward those hard working bloggers by featuring their content at the top of the community stream. Anyone's content can get featured here, and here is a few tips to help you reach this goal:
1: Make sure you are actively engaging with the community, including others posts, not just your own!
2: Create useful and informative content. What does your content have to offer that everything else out there doesn't? Does it solve a problem, and what benefit does it bring to others? Think about that.
3: Make sure you are following community guidelines. Violations will count against you here.
4: Check your content for consistency. Make sure your content isn't full of grammatical errors, and that it makes sense to users. Users should be able to make sense of what your blog post is about from from title alone, and the first paragraph should be relevant to the rest of your post.
Announcement to Strategic Social Networking Members
Here's a reminder of some of the rules we have in place here. Failure to follow these rules could result in your removal from the community permanently:
1: Do NOT make the same post to multiple communities, pages, etc! This is a big one! If you make the same post twice, expect to get banned. If you want to post to the community and then share that post back to public, this is acceptable, posting to multiple communities, pages, etc, is not! Google will flag your content as spam if you do and no one will see it anyway!
2: Do NOT post and run! If you aren't actively involved in community discussions, then don't post here. This is not a bulletin board, its a place for active discussion. If you post, and people respond to your post, then you should respond as well! You should also make an effort to engage with others posts in the community, and not just your own.
3: Don't advertise your products, services, etc, in this community! You are welcome to mention your products and services here as long as they're mentioned along with informative content (an infographic, article, blog post, etc). The products need to be mentioned at the end of your post descriptions.
4: Include accurate descriptions in all your posts here! Posts with no descriptions will be removed, and if you continuously do this, you will be removed as well. Don't assume that people are psychic and know what your post is about and what your link leads too. Give us some information!
5: Posts involving MLM marketing or anything that is not social media/IT related will get you banned. If it doesn't fall into a category on the left, then it doesn't belong here.
Failing to follow these guidelines will get you removed from the community, so I suggest taking this seriously.
We reserve the right to remove and or report users who violate Google's terms of service or ours.
