If you toot your own horn all day on social media, people would start ignoring your self-centered practices.


Social networks are for conversations and they shouldn't be used as billboards.


Many social media experts believe that at least 50% of what you share should be of content from others.


Snip.ly helps you capture value from this 50% so that even when you’re sharing content from others, you can still be rewarded for your curation efforts!

Neil Ferree's insight:
TLS Handshake

Before the client and the server can begin exchanging application data over TLS, the encrypted tunnel must be negotiated: the client and the server must agree on the version of the TLS protocol, choose the ciphersuite, and verify certificates if necessary.


Unfortunately, each of these steps requires new packet roundtrips (Figure 4-2) between the client and the server, which adds startup latency to all TLS connections.

How I promote my new blog posts | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

After I have finished writing, editing, deep linking and have published a new blog post, my work has just gotten started.


Simply creating content isn't sufficient to gain readership. You need to actively promote that new post so that people can see it and have a chance to read it.


It can take a long time to build up email and RSS subscribers, so in the meantime, you will need to be more proactive. Here are all the things I do after I publish a post to get readers to it.

One of the best and most proliferous bloggers I know on Google+ is @Mike Allton.Once Mike hits the publish button, he kicks into high gear the marketing of his content. 


Most of these techniques are well known. Some of these gems are not to well know. All of them should become part of your content marketing efforts.

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.

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

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!

Social Signals and SEO

Social Signals and SEO | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it
Forget everything you've read about correlations between social and search. Here's the Social SEO math you must understand to succeed.
Neil Ferree's insight:

When I read high level SEO articles likes this one from AJ Kohn I think what non SEO's (Docs, Dentists, Lawyers and Plumbers) must be going through when they contemplate creating and curate content that will resonate with their target audience?


Suffice to say, this level of detailed Social SEO is way above the pay grade of 99% of the online marketing world?


Big Brands with infrastructure, resources and budgets might be able to connect the dots on this level of online marketing tactics, but I suspect most can't due to limitations of time, money and resources.


This is why solutions like Scoop.it are so valuable to small business owners who don't (or can't) afford to read, understand and deploy such technical marketing tactics and why solutions that any SMB can deploy in hours vs. weeks & use DIY content marketing systems so they can better manage their social media presence.
