Tips Tuesday and Is Your Theme Responsive, Mobile-Friendly, or Mobile-Optimized? | Blog Aid | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

I want to thank Ms. Ileane of Basic Blog Tips for creating such a wonderful page on Scoop It for podcast tips. She has been posting the new series from Pat Flynn on how to create a podcast since it started. I’m in the process of switching the BlogAid podcast over from a Feedburner feed to the PowerPress plugin and updating everything on iTunes, so this 6-part series was super timely and helpful.
If you want to read more about how Ms. Ileane uses ScoopIt, she’s written a nice post all about it with a nice video tutorial and everything you need to know to get started.

How to Promote the Ish out of Your Blog

How to Promote the Ish out of Your Blog | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

Replace Facebook “Like” button with “Share” button
To tell you the truth, it wasn’t easy to find any evidence supporting my gut feeling that a Share button is better than a Like button.

The main obstacle was the fact that Facebook seemed to be very much like Google – in a constant state of menopause: unpredictable with widely-ranged mood swings.

I did finally find a couple of posts written recently enough to still be applicable and by people whose opinion I respect.

So for further reading on the subject, check out:

13 Pro Bloggers reveals the Strategy used to grow their blogs | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

Interview with Ileane about best traffic strategy:
1- You are a person who does not need any introduction, but as a part of formality could you tell us a little about yourself and why you are awesome?
I’m Ileane and my blog is Basic Blog Tips. I’ve been blogging for 3 years and I’m also very active on Twitter, Facebook and Google+. I have a podcast on iTunes and over 100 video tutorials on my YouTube channel.

2- What was the main strategy behind the growth of your blog?
My blog appeals to bloggers at all stages of their blogging careers. I have a big audience of new bloggers coming in from organic searches from all the major search engines but I also have a loyal fan base that I am very connected to. I’m also very blessed to have featured over 100 guest authors who have made major contributions to the growth of the blog and the valuable content that’s offered there.

3- What other strategies that you recommend?
I know that having my content available in various formats like videos, presentations on SlideShare, podcasts and social networks has made a big difference in the connections I’ve made online. You need to build connections with people and do more sharing and giving than your own self promotion.

7 Epic Free Traffic Tips I Used This Week From 7 Top Bloggers | | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

7.) Ileane Smith of BasicBlogTips.com shared a great simple yet effective Facebook tip. If you desire to get more Facebook traffic try this out. I’ve used it several times and it’s never failed me:

Post Images and Videos to Increase Facebook Edgerank

“We have all been told that the best way to increase engagement levels on Facebook is to post pictures and videos. When we do this, our followers are more likely to see the post and give it a like or add a comment.

Of course this makes sense because the visual stimulation draws people in and causes them to react, and when people see that there are a lot of likes on a post, they pay more attention and in turn they want go add a like or comment also.

The more likes and comments you get the more people see your post in their news feeds and so on. You get the picture right. If you spend a lot of time on Facebook, like I do you know exactly what I’m talking about.”

Google Authorship A to Z Workshop - Everything You Need To Know

Google Authorship A to Z Workshop - Everything You Need To Know | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

My friend Chris Lang hosted a Google Hangouts on Air on the topic of Google Authorship. This is a panel discussion. The following panelists were on hand for the discussion:

Jack Humphrey
Todd Hartley
Shira Gal
and of course your's truly Ileane Smith

Google authorship is the process where by Google will assign authorship and rand to your content in Google's index. Your image will appear next to your content when it shows up in Google's search results page. In theory this will make your article stand out in the search results and people will tend to click on your link instead of the other links that show up on the search results page.

How to Make Your Blog Profitable

How to Make Your Blog Profitable | Basic Blog Tips | Scoop.it

Making money with your blog isn't as difficult as you might think...


Kimberly Gauthier, editor-in-chief of Keep the Tail Wagging, a blog dedicated to all things canine, has channeled her love and passion for dogs into a profitable blog....

Gauthier also stresses the importance of Facebook. Even if your business is a locally based service like a restaurant or a spa, someone you connect with on Facebook may have friends visiting your town or that live in your town. "There's such opportunity here," she said. "It may not turn your business into a $5 million business overnight, but it's a great affordable way to promote your brand."

Gauthier suggested the following resources for bloggers just getting started:

“For me, what’s more important are the connections and the relationships you can build through your blog. Those connections will lead to collaborations and eventually help you build the skill set, along with the confidence you need to succeed.”
