Investing in SEO: Marketers are Doing More SEO Than They Think

Investing in SEO: Marketers are Doing More SEO Than They Think | New Media for the ESL Classroom | Scoop.it

Content marketing, social media, video, and public relations affect a web presence and organic search rankings. These tactics can have a significant positive impact on SEO including: rank, backlinking, social signal generation and fresh content.

 

"Social media and SEO are very much separate line items in a marketing budget, but content socialized at the page level through Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube generates social signals which can positively impact SEO and an organic search ranking.

 

The most direct link between SEO and social media is Google+ and Search plus Your World. If you haven't yet started to build out your personal and business Circles, please do. A piece of content shared through your Circles has an opportunity to be found by your followers through Search plus Your World – before your competitors’ content is found".

This Scholastic resource contains a number of tools that can be used with different types of interactive whiteboards, with students of all ages across all subjects.  I appreciate that this site has activities for multiple types of IWBs, as some of the teachers who take my class don't actually have SMART Boards, but other types of IWBs.

A Free, Complete Guide to Evernote | New Media for the ESL Classroom | Scoop.it

Evernote is currently my favorite service for note-taking and bookmarking. I have Evernote installed on my iPad, my Android Tablets, my phone, my computers, and I have the Evernote web clipper installed in all of my browsers. Because of Evernote's versatility I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good note-taking and bookmarking tool. One question that I often hear from first-time Evernote users is, there's so many options, where do I start? Make Use Of has just released a new guide that will answer that question and many more.

Making a vision easily understood is critical. Drop the buzzwords and corporate speak. Use terms that are easily understood, unambiguous, and as simple as possible.

10 Reasons Why Your Content Doesn't Attract Links -- Story Elements

10 Reasons Why Your Content Doesn't Attract Links -- Story Elements | New Media for the ESL Classroom | Scoop.it
So we have all heard time and time again, "to attract links you need to build great content". But very few actually talk about what good content looks like. That's because good content can come in many different forms.

 

Here's an article by Joe Hall that very clearly explains why content on a website gets ignored. And they are all story principles!

 

Keep this list handy and make sure when you are creating content -- any kind of content whether it be a blog post or a brochure -- that you include a well written title, has a unique voice, contrast, a focused key message, etc.

The Magic of Visual Storytelling: A Rhetoric for Beginners

The Magic of Visual Storytelling: A Rhetoric for Beginners | New Media for the ESL Classroom | Scoop.it

The following is a collection of thoughts regarding the concept of a ‘story telling’ image. Rather than an in-depth instructional tutorial, the following is more of a rhetoric that seeks to persuade and inspire you to develop your creativity and to start taking shots that matter; shots that communicate something meaningful to the viewer.

 

Here is what I like about this article -- it reminds us that as we go about our work in the world, there are plenty of places to take photos that can be used as story triggers.

 

If we can stop, pause, take a breath, look around, and approach our world with curiosity and creativity, we will often find photo opportunities that begin to share a story.

 

I make the distinction between a photograph telling a story and one that triggers a story because I think most photos trigger stories. You can see this happening in the examples the author shares. First, the photos need interpretation, which the author does. 2 of the 3 photos shared are about Australia and without the context of the culture and history of Australia the immediate impact of the photos on me sitting here in in the US are minimal. The 3rd photo is intriguing and does get me to interpret the photo on my own and start creating stories about it.

 

The take-aways for us in business? Stop and see what is around you, notice opportunities in your work for taking photos, get creative, and snap images that you can use as story triggers to share with the world about your work.

 

There are some nice additional insights here to get your creative juices flowing, so don't miss reading the rest of this post!

 

Thank you Giuseppe Mauriello for finding this article!
