Using BizSugar as a Content Promotion Tool

From netmediablog.com

BizSugar has grown from small business networking site for small business owners to social networking community for small business bloggers as Ileane rightly called it in an article titled “BizSugar a Social Network for Small Business”.  For some months now since I discovered BizSugar I have been using it as a content syndication site and also a content promotion tool and it has greatly improved my blog.

Ileane Smith:

It's my pleasure to introduce bloggers and small business owners to BizSugar

I am glad i learnt about Bizsugar from you....it has helped me alot.

The secret to making money as a blogger!

From seekdefo.com

HUSH… The secret to making money as a blogger..It’s so obvious now that I didn’t even need to draw any arrows this time! It’s crystal clear that the page on my blog with the highest number of impressions in Google search is the one at the top of the list: How To Get Your First 2,000 Twitter Followers

Ileane Smith:

Interesting twist to a post that I wrote. Here's the comment I left 


"Hey George,

Cool post and I like being used as an example for all to see!!

In addition to Google Webmaster Tools I also use Market Samurai for keyword tracking and I love it. I’ve never done a comparison of the MS and SEM Rush but if you know of one please share it with me so I can see how they match up against each other.

Market Samurai just introduced two new features because they are predicting that Google is going to get rid of Page Rank soon. The new tools are citation flow and trust flow. They are pretty awesome additions to their arsenal and I like that they are trying to be pro-active. I plan on doing a YouTube video on it this weekend."

How To Keep Your Blog Moving Forward | Omega Web

From www.omegaweb.com

Blog post at Omega Web : I saw this quote in my College Success textbook yesterday and it made me think of blogging...


1. Read Authority Blogs That Keep People Informed


One of the best things you can do is read other blogs that share valuable information. The first two that come to my mind are Basic Blog Tips and SEOmoz. Note that this isn’t an exhaustive list, but both Basic Blog Tips and SEOmoz have kept me up to speed on the latest social media changes, SEO techniques, powerful blogging plugins, etc. If you expect to get your blog moving at all, you have to look at the blogs that are already in the fast lane.

What is a Blog? How to Blog Series – Post #1

From bivori.com

'What is a blog' is the first post of 'Bivori How to Blog Series' a blogging guide for complete new readers. Find how some famous bloggers define blogs...


Karen Woodham from Blazing Minds has always inspired me. I love that she is always kind and thoughtful and she’s also very talented musically. I remember when she would blog about anything and really didn’t have a niche blog so to speak. As time went by she experimented with all sorts of ideas but she always managed to maintain her unique outlook on the blogosphere. She does movie reviews these days but still manages to connect with her audience on a deeper level by sharing personal stories every now and then. She is also a bit of a celebrity these days, but she stays grounded and I think she is an awesome role model.


Ileane is truly a very active blogger with exceptional networking skills. She has an awesome blog – Basic Blog Tips. You can turn to her for WordPress blogging, social media, podcasting, YouTube marketing and tech tips!

Stop. Feel Like You’re Marketing With a Blindfold On? Not Getting Results? Here’s Help!

From blog.2createawebsite.com

Blog post at 2 Create a Website - The Blog : Hold it.  Let's put on the brakes for a moment....


SEO Time Wasters 


This is an area where I feel people waste too much time today. Not because SEO is a waste, but many of the strategies we used to rely on have died/are dying.
SEO is becoming more and more manipulation proof. In other words, activities that can be easily replicated will have less impact than they did before.
Anyone can submit a bunch of articles, forum signatures, amass oodles of links through schemes, submit to numerous directories, etc. Spending hours per week on those activities will no longer give you the same benefits you may have realized years ago.
So you could spend your day chasing backlinks or write one really solid article for a popular blog like ProBlogger or Basic Blog Tips.

Google is Trying to Tell You Something, Are You Listening?

From basicblogtips.com

Google has put so many awesome tools at the disposal of bloggers and small business owners that at times, it's almost impossible to keep up with them all. Google wants you to succeed with your online endeavors but let’s face it, we all know that they are getting more then their fair share out of the deal too.


Yet, as bloggers and webmasters, when we stop to think about all the perks we get from Google, two things should stand out in our minds above the rest:

  • Google Analytics.
  • Google Webmaster Tools.
