The Impact of Authoritative Links, Mentions, and Shares on Rankings | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

First of all, it's fresh content. Google loves fresh content. Second, the article is good enough for people to share it on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

 

On average, these articles get about 50 to 100 shares total. What would happen if you would have some very influential people share that content?

How to Manage Your Social Media Presence

How to Manage Your Social Media Presence | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it
Follow this blueprint to manage your social media presence so when someone Google's your name, your social profiles are compelling and social engaging.
Neil Ferree's insight:
How to Increase Your Social Media Presence

It’s not enough to simply write a blog post article, ping your article to an RSS feed and rely on your on-page optimization efforts to rise above the massive noise level.


To get our marketing message found, seen, read and shared by our target audience, we have to amplify our social content marketing campaigns by sharing our content to our top social media channels.

To do this effectively, requires that we deploy a content marketing system so we can share our content and increase our social media presence to our social footprint.


This is why I created my DiY Content Marketing System so you can share your content to your top socials using the @Neil Ferree like 1 million other internet marketers do every day.

Google Pulls Profile Photos and Circle Counts from Search Results

Google Pulls Profile Photos and Circle Counts from Search Results | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

Google announced today they will remove profile photos and the author's Google+ circle counts from search results.


According to John Mueller We've been doing lots of work to clean up the visual design of our search results, in particular creating a better mobile experience and a more consistent design across devices. As a part of this, we’re simplifying the way authorship is shown in mobile and desktop search results, removing the profile photo and circle count. (Our experiments indicate that CTR behavior on this less-cluttered design is similar to the previous one.).


This makes it more challenging to manage your social media

Neil Ferree's insight:

My guess is, if you ask t00 people if they'd like to continue having their Google Authorship Photo in the SERPs 99% would say yes!

5 Practical Steps To Improving Your Website’s Domain Authority

5 Practical Steps To Improving Your Website’s Domain Authority | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

Domain Authority (DA) is a website metric developed by Moz. It is one of the most important numbers known to SEOs. The greater your DA, the more likely you are going to have strong traffic and high rank.

Neil Ferree's insight:

These 5 Steps do not require advanced SEO skills or tools.


Having a robust social link wheel comprised of the top social channels is within reach of any small business owner, namely:


Facebook

LinkedIn

Google+

Twitter

YouTube


For most of my small business clients, I would include SlideShare are one of your top tier social channels.

The most popular is probably Alexa, which is owned by Amazon. Another site measurement service is called SimilarWeb.


The  free versions of both of these web metric measurement services also provide their top referring source, top 5 keyword phrase and destination sites. Its more difficult to get a site's stats from the SimilarWeb servers, unless the site has a significant traffic count and other TOF metrics, much like the Compete service.

Neil Ferree's insight:

If you want more traffic to your website, the best thing to do is mirror a site that gets 5 million visitors. Sites like Neil Patel QuickSprout.


The first thing you should do is find out where your current traffic is coming from. Alexa is a good starting point.


The next thing is do discover what are the top search terms people are using to find your website. I like to use SimilarWeb for this.


Your next step is to enter your top competitors into these site ranking sites to discover what search phrases they are getting traffic from. What are their top referring sources and their TOF (top of funnel) metrics;



Once you know what your TOF metrics are and those of your competitors, then you should read Neil's article and mirror the steps hw outlines in this Quick Sprout article.

Thanks, Neil. The article on the 10 questions you ask a social media guru sounds interesting.
Glad I helped you get back to Commun.it. Do you still use it regularly?

I get that Scoop.it allows you to make it easy to share an article to multiple networks with one click, but I don't quite understand the advantages of the Pro version. You say it enables the "rich text editor". I assume that means you can link to other articles and format text with bold and italics. I can see that being helpful, but is it worth paying the money for? What do you mean by pointing to a page "3 layers deep"?
