Technorati AJ Kohn shares keys to content and SEO strategy Technorati He's been the owner of Blind Five Year Old, he writes for MarketingLand, SearchEngineLand, Moz and speaks all over the world on his search engine strategies and tactics.
So I encourage all newbies and expert in SEO, SMM, SEM and also business owners to invest more in producing unique and valuable content instead of buying tools to make your lives easier. For me SEO is a broad industry that relates to all industry so it's not easy to compete. However my secret in order to compete and dominate is very simple and you probably doing it already. Focus on producing quality/valuable/unique content, build hard to get links using it and strong on-page optimization. (if it's not working for you I think you're doing something wrong, your effort/budget is not enough or your site sucks or your product sucks or your price is to expensive or your over optimizing on-site and off-site)

When the social network of Pinterest first started in March of 2010, people loved it as a visual place to create their holiday “wish-list” boards. They would create boards of stuff they liked online and would never know where it would lead to.Well, these wish-lists are now becoming a true reality, as Pinterest is becoming both a true e-commerce and brick-n-mortar player!
Back in May, the photo-sharing network began allowing “rich pins”, which allows users to post detailed information about an item, such as the originating image site and product purchase information. Now they are taking it one step further by providing price drop summarized email notifications to its users for photos they pinned.
That can be huge for e-commerce, as Pinterest users spend on average of 14 minutes a session on the social network, an eternity in cyber-space!But, not only is Pinterest leading people to a business website for e-commerce purposes but according to recent data distributed by the Vision Council and Harvard Business Review, 21% of Pinterest users had bought an item in an actual store after pinning, repining or liking the item on Pinterest....
I remember when pinterest is just starting up. Most of the user would just pin random stuff and ofcourse their personal links without and good graphics or images in the post. Then you can see random un-organized boards as a result of manipulative link building (they say) without any purpose at all. Now online stores have seen the power of pinterest and the ability to organized their product images along with products description and URL, and they have used it for Marketing Purposes. Hope this post will teach other SEO Specialist how to use pinterest the right way.
