Have you ever wondered who is checking you out on LinkedIn? LinkedIn's Who's Viewed Your Profile feature includes new visual analytics and insights into your potential professional suitors.
LinkedIn komt met nieuwe, gevisualiseerde statistieken over bezoeken aan je profiel.
I don't use linkedIn too often, but do get the updates each week via email from LinkedIn letting me know who viewed my profile. I pay for the pro version, I think it is $10 per month...
I have always wondered if it is a best practice to contact those people who have viewed my profile due to being a small business, in the area of divorce, and there is only one real reason to be checking out my profile.
I have refrained from contacting these people since what I do is a little touchy and would hate to make people uncomfortable by asking them if there was anything I could do for them.
Perhaps kind of creepy? I don't know. Any recommendations?
So who's been viewing you?

Engage website visitors better by designing your site to match how people's eyes move on the page. Here are some surprising eye tracking stats to help.
Putting together a great looking website is a great start, but it is just a start.
True web design requires you to venture beyond the aesthetic and into the worlds of User Experience and Conversion Rate Optimization.
Knowing how the viewers of your site really see it can help to shine light on new and/or missed opportunities within your current design. It may also bring out the need for new elements or changes.
While there are plenty of options for improving CRO, eye tracking analysis provides some of the most useful information for optimizing your biggest digital marketing asset, your website.
A good design will catch people’s eye, but a great design will keep people on your site and get them engaged with your content. And while you shouldn’tunderestimate the power of good copy, your design is what people notice first.
We teamed up with our friends over at Single Grain to put together the infographic below in hopes that it will help everyone get a better, basic understanding of what eye tracking is and what it can do.

HOW SCOOP IT CHANGED MY SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING STRATEGY BY ACCIDENT
As I began this process of building my "brand" .. creating my online image and my professional presentation, I had a lot to figure out. I created my first website, facebook and Linked In account. I made the decision to "market" myself a Lite Feet dancer, if you read my bio it is one of the accomplishments in my life for which I am very proud. The problem there was no single source of information of LITE FEET DANCE. My introduction to Scoop It was perfect timing, it gave me an opportunity to create a LITE FEET SCOOP -- I had been dancing since I was 14 and I had come to know all the founders and the main Lite Feet websites, the history of Lite Feet dance, the multitude of YouTube Channels, websites, facebook pages and Lite Feet Sound Cloud accounts, and I felt a great responsibility to curate and create the first and only LITE FEET SCOOP. Creating this scoop gave me a link to provide as a reference to my own "LIte Feet Dancer" identity but also was a unique opportunity to curate, what I believe to be, an important, relevent and for the most part unnoticed dance phenom and YouTube Sensation that is Lite Feet Dance. My efforts to high lite the incredible talent of these young dancers has been an honor and I will continue to add to scoop as new content becomes available.
DLite Scoops Lite Feet Dance:
I then created several other relevent scoops for my story, and I created them in the hopes that sharing my journey would hopefully help others with similar journeys.

A previous report from Forrester Research established Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as the most important source of targeted traffic business owners can have for their websites, with organic web search or natural search sitting at the top of traffic sources. Digital marketers expect this trend to persist and would grow at a steady rate despite the proliferation and growing popularity of other traffic sources like social networks and other online or offline channels.
The following infographic describes some of the most anticipated SEO trends for the new year.

"People are more likely to trust a recommendation from a friend or a family member than by a search engine. This means that if the search engines aren’t embracing social media, they are going to lose out big time.
With this, Google integrated social media into their core search algorithm and in 2010, the famous Matt Cutts announced that Google is using “social signals” in their search algorithm, and they have been doing this for a while. Social signals play an important part in increasing website traffic and to obtain organic rankings and have been doing so for a while, but many are only starting to realize this now.
What does this mean? It means that SEO has evolved once again and is now working hand in hand with social media".
