...I don’t anticipate the growth of data slowing down in my lifetime. There’s too much goodness to be mined from it all.


Recently, we decided to revisit the topic and found, not surprisingly, that the pace of data creation continued to accelerate.

Neil Ferree's insight:

The growing trend aptly named Content Shock is marginalizing many of the amatuer content marketers who employ and use the tactic I call Pump and Dump without adding any value whatsoever!


One of the fastest ways to get demote your social influence is to merely share stuff without adding value to the social share.


Hopefully you aren't using such antiquated techniques as part of your content marketing strategy?

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"?
