6 Tools That Help Bloggers Manage and Monitor Their Online Reputation

6 Tools That Help Bloggers Manage and Monitor Their Online Reputation | Organic SEO | Scoop.it
This is a guest post by Per Schmitz. Nowadays there’s a lot of personal information publicly available on the web. We all have an “online persona” which is directly related to the way people see and judge us as individuals.

 

As Google says: “Your online identity is determined not only by what you post, but also by what others post about you – whether it is a mention in a blog post, a photo tag or a reply to a public status update.”

50 (mostly) free social media tools you can’t live without in 2012 | Organic SEO | Scoop.it

A couple years ago, Jay Baer wrote a great blog post called 'The 39 social media tools I'll use today' which was an all-in-one toolkit for social media marketers (and still is).

A lot has changed in the two years since that post was published so here is a ’2012 remix’ featuring 50 (mostly free) tools you can use on a daily basis.

Whether you are just starting out in the social media arena or have been at it for a few years, this will hopefully be a handy resource. So, let’s serve ‘em up!

SEO & Google: The Ugly Truth

SEO & Google: The Ugly Truth | Organic SEO | Scoop.it
We don't need to run around after every algo update post, every webmaster notification, word from a Googler's lips, screaming to the world that something is amiss and how they're out to persecute us. Get a grip.

 

Certainly, Matt Cutts would just love to increase his budget and sway. But these aren't always the realities.

 

When folks talk about IR patents and papers, it's always best to keep that in mind. Things don't always work out in the wash.

Four Tips for Improving Landing Page Conversions

Four Tips for Improving Landing Page Conversions | Organic SEO | Scoop.it
Over the years, we’ve written a lot about landing pages, conversions and calls to action. It’s not enough to get traffic – although traffic is, of course, important.

 

Clear Calls to Action:

A clear call to action directs the potential customer to the information they what to see. Even if you’re ranking well for your search terms, it will not matter if the customer cannot find what he is looking for within the first three seconds.

Blogging Mistakes Most Corporate Bloggers Still Make

Blogging Mistakes Most Corporate Bloggers Still Make | Organic SEO | Scoop.it
Actual mistakes that are very common with business blogs run by companies.

 

Rare, irregular postings

A blog is like a mix of a diary and a daily newspaper. Both of them require daily attention ideally. 3 posts a week are enough to thrive once the blog works but anything below two posts a week is not enough to capture an audience and make it stay.

Are You Making These Mistakes With Your Content?

Are You Making These Mistakes With Your Content? | Organic SEO | Scoop.it

Content is a good word with a lot of meanings. It means significance, substantive information, topics. Depending on the use, it also means agreeing, satisfied or gratified. Put into a single definition, content could be, “Topics that provide a large amount of significant information and satisfy the needs of the reader.” Ooo – we like the sound of that!
