...The Most Effective Button Locations.
There is a really great post at Ms.Ileane Smith’s blog, basicblogtips.com that talks about all the reasons why someone wouldn’t share your post on Twitter. One of the points the post makes is that no one would bother sharing a post if the sharing buttons are even a little hard to find. But it works the other way around too. The easier it is to find the tweet button, the more likely people are to actually tweet it. So here’s the breakdown of the best locations for the tweet button in order of most effective.....
My comment on the post: Twitter has so many new tricks these days I think I missed a couple of them. For example #7 – I’m not sure I’ve seen those around much on blogs and I think it’s kind of nifty. I’ll give it a try.
Blog post at GROWMAP.COM : This is a guest post by Christopher Wallace, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Amsterdam Printing Promotional Products to share tips...How to Create Facebook Timeline Images
If you want to do this yourself, Ileane @BasicBlogTips recommends the Facebook Timeline Splicer Pro App. Mari Smith shared last month that Facebook Single Column Timeline Designs Rolled Out so it is likely there will be a similar design for businesses. If it is already out I haven’t seen it yet.
I was actually really sick two days ago with what I thought was a stomach bug (probably was) and in recovery so haven’t been posting much. I saw however that Deborah Anderson from@SocialWebCafe had finished updating and published our interview from a few months back polishing it up into a formal lessons from the Dragon Blogger article that she wound up publishing on Basic Blog Tips.
Blog post at BlogSetupGuide.com : What good is it having a blog if no one ever sees it or comments on it. Syndication is vital to your blog, and in this blog post I want to...Technorati.com – I recently watched Ileane’s video on YouTube. (make sure you subscribe to her channel it’s great!). She made a good point about claiming your blog there and many people look down on it. Honestly, I don’t know why either Ileane? Maybe they are just lazy! It was her number 5 source of traffic via social media. I don’t spend much time there, but I have claimed my blogs there and it does pass some good link juice. Now that I think of it I should really start participating there more often.
Remember back in 2011, when Google linked the Google Plus profiles of journalists to Google News, and folks like Emily Bell, Erik Wemple, Amy Gahran, Megan Garber and I had a cross-platform... If you focus on online marketing, journalism and SEO — and like it or not, if you publish on the Internet, you need to keep an eye on these areas — this is a noteworthy development. It’s worth taking the time to understand Author Rank, learn how it works, why it matters to SEO, and think about how it might apply to what you do online. To learn more, check out Google’s Authorship page on Plus.
I was also interviewed twice on other podcasts. The first was on this awesome Content marketing smackdown put together by Jake Hower.
You can check it out on Content Smackdown with Dan Andrews, James Schramko and Dan Norris.
The second was with Casey from the Industry Domination Podcast but that one hasn’t gone live yet.
And I was interviewed in a text interview by Ileane on Basic Blog Tips here.

Ileane runs a blog community that is quite active and constantly shares articles to help bloggers with using their blogs. She tries to keep on top of the blog game and is always talking with readers and is always talking with readers and blogging colleagues.
Getting an award from Nile Flores means the world to me! I really appreciate this!

Blog post at Productive Superdad : On the 31st of December, 2010, I published my first post on this blog. Ever since then I have been blogging on a frequent basis...
3. Get a coach from the get-go
This is one of the things I wish I had done when I started blogging: Hired a coach.
Although I hired some temporary help when launching my blog in 2011 (and to which I was happy with), I still wanted something more.
In January 2012 this changed, as I started working with Danny Iny and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Coaching has made a huge difference in my productivity as I’m able to focus on things that are truly important.
It’s also a great way to test new ideas: I might have a crazy plan in my head which I pitch to Danny. If he thinks the idea is not so great, I put that on hold or get it off of my list completely. This is a huge time saver and I can keep on track without any extra distractions.
Although coaching is expensive, it’s also a much faster way to get to your destination. Besides, you can rarely get to your goal by buying a $19 e-book.
Here's the comment I left:
What an incredible job you have done with your blogs in the past two years! You are so right about the hard work that goes into the art of blogging and it’s really a smart idea to get help right up front. Working with Danny is a plus and having a system in place is also key.
I don’t know what I would do with out wonderful guest contributors like yourself that keep a constant stream of value-added blog posts flowing on my blog.
Thanks for all you do and best wishes for another “productive” year in 2013!
Have you ever wondered what other popular bloggers are preparing for?...Blogging Predictions For 2013
For blogging predictions we have Ileane Smith, Nile Flores and Gail Gardner, all of whom are very well respected bloggers and at the top of their game.
Ileane Smith from Basic Blog Tips predicts that 2013 will be the biggest year for blogging! That’s an exciting idea:
This will come as no surprise to those of us who are blogging but I predict that more blogs will be started in 2013 than ever before. Now that Google is responsible (they said this not me) for sending quality, targeted traffic to our blogs and keeping spam under control, people will start to gain a new respect for Google+ and other Google properties like Blogger.
Video blogging and podcasting will continue to boom and we’ll gain access to tools that will eliminate any barriers to entry such as language, and learning curves that in the past, prevented us from exploring new formats and platforms.
2013 is going to be a good year, especially for those of us who are already creating content and building solid social connections!
2012 was a great blogging year for me and I've been learning a lot from different blogs and bloggers...
2. Ileane Smith:
Ileane Smith is someone I’ve been watching for 6 or so months now and I learned a lot from her about blogging and social media..
She has a popular blog, but focuses on networking and relationship building more rather than just being a blogger and she built the majority of her following through social media.
She started BasicBlogTips.com in 2011 and quickly built a solid reputation for producing quality content and building relationships with her followers.
I’ve done several guest posts at her blog which you can read here.
I can’t wait to see her shining in the coming year.

In 2013 I plan to put more effort into building my email list. One way I will do this is by adding an optin slider using Hybrid-Connect. I’m not a fan of pop-ups but I think using the slider is a nice option that is less intrusive but still very effective. As Basic Blog Tips continues to bring in more organic traffic, I’d like to make people more aware that I have a ton of valuable content available on my podcast and my YouTube channel. It will be easy to get the word out to my email subscribers in my auto-responder sequence.
3 Things brought me write this for you
Following a week of the release of Facebook Nearby in the moble app, thenFacebook Nearby’s Potential as a local marketing platform challenging FourSquare, I have to ask you: Is Facebook a local marketing contender or a social giant in early decline?
Now today, a very well written article on Ileane Smith’s blog that really cleared the air about the Facebook Page true reach brought it home for me.
If you are not into video marketing, then you are likely to be left out in the internet marketing race. This is not my statement, this is something that most GURUs today are professing...In this video by Ileane Smith, she shows how to schedule videos and how to upload a custom thumbnail for your videos.

Next up on my “must read” blog list is Basic Blog Tips by Ileane Smith. Don’t be fooled by her blog’s name either. There’s nothing “basic” about her blog tips. Her blog really provides great content and solid tips that you can easily implement into your business. Check out these excellent posts from her blog:
Honored to see Basic Blog Tips on this list!
Blog post at I'm Just Sharing : A couple of weeks ago on 12/12/12 I wrote a post titled 12 Things For 12/12/12....I did have these 12 titles and links that I briefly mentioned in some fashion, which is what the video was based on. So I’m going to give those links beneath the video. It’s about 20 minutes long; I was shooting for 10 minutes but there’s no timer! I did it using Google+ Live Hangout, which means anyone could have been watching, except I started it around 12:45 or so in the morning, so I doubt anyone saw it live, and that’s just fine. Hey, at least I know Brian will watch it, though I mentioned Sheryl, Ileane, and Holly.
Dan Andrews is back (see his last appearance here) on the show to discuss leadership, content, podcasting and tribes.
I know that Dan thinks my name is Elaine, but when I get a chance I'll let know know. HA!! But he got Basic Blog Tips right so I'm ok with that. Here's my interview with Dan. http://basicblogtips.com/dan-norris-interview.html

So, for the last two days I have been trying to get some ideas. And then just today I got the idea of writing this post. If you have been facing the same problem as me, here are the top tips on how to get ideas fro your blog posts...
I certainly agree with this! Because my blog and the CommentLuv blog have lots of guest authors, it's a hot bed of ideas for new blog posts. Just use your own words and don't copy and paste. :)
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.
It's my pleasure to introduce bloggers and small business owners to BizSugar

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