Social Shares is the New SEO

Social Shares is the New SEO | Google Plus Business Pages | Scoop.it

Social Shares is the New SEO. This Mind Map shows the tools and apps I use for setting up a DiY Content Marketing System.


Via Gerrit Bes
Neil Ferree's insight:

Which impacts your social content marketing more?


My experience shows that social signals
  • Facebook Like  
  • Google +1
  • Retweet
happens far more often than social share (ie) when someone shares your content with their social connections, much the same way we do here on Scoop.it
more...
Neil Ferree's curator insight, March 24, 12:49 PM

Its pretty easy to get a +1 on a G+ post or a Like on Facebook update or a retweet on one of your Tweets if your content is cool and well thought out and your image and intro are all in sync.


Getting someone to share your article, post or tweet with their friends and social connections is a horse of a different color, so being able to increase your online visibility is becoming more challenging.


This Mind Map covers a lot of what's involved in making this happen and will be useful to you if you agree social shares is the new seo?

Neil Patel writes an interesting article about how to make money from your website. He breaks it down to these 3 items that we need to pay attention to:

 

*Tip #1:* Grab the attention of a drunk person

*Tip #2:* Think like a searcher

*Tip #3: *A deal isn’t a deal, unless people think it is

 

The article focuses around content marketing but _I think the points he make apply to whatever it is you might be trying to sell on the internet._

Websites need defined tiered navigation, splash pages, helpful categorization and internal search or they loose engagement. 

The more content you create the harder it gets for visitors to find. When visitors can’t find what they want they leave.

12 Most Innovative Ways to Create Content That Gets Shared

12 Most Innovative Ways to Create Content That Gets Shared | Google Plus Business Pages | Scoop.it

Your most important online asset is your content. It attracts clients to you and encourages prospects to take action.

Neil Ferree's insight:

Follow these 12 Steps @Rebekah Radice outlines in this A+ article if you want to create killer content your target audience wants and expects you to deliver and especially if you want them to share it with their social connections which we all want to have happen!


Focus on Step #3 • in my opinion, this is the most important dynamic of the bunch. The more detailed you define your ideal customer as to 


  • who they are?
  • where do they live?
  • what do they read?
  • why do they read it?
  • when do they read it"
  • how do they read it?
  • who do they read it from (you get the idea)


If you can visualize and appeal to as many of these aspects of your ideal customer, the easier it will be to connect with them at the right place and at the right time with the right information in the right format and improve your odds of making the connection you seek.

  1. Personal Page 
  2. Business Page
