As many of you will have seen, Twitter introduced a mute button yesterday. See this as a block light or a way to block someone without completely blocking them (so you can sleep easy at night!). But is it any good?

4. Build Relations

Again, the classical rule of the online marketer.

For a winning strategy, it is necessary to build relationships with your industry influencers and Pinterest is the right tool to do so.

You can repin their content, for example, and discuss it with them : it could be a way for you to be noticed or receive a positive feedback!

How to Get Large Image Link Shares in Google+ (Google Finally Explains)

Thanks to the all knowing +Mark Traphagen who shared this on Google+- we now know how to get large image link shares in Google+. If your posts have large images they are going to receive much more engagement, but it's not been clear how to do that. It's all down to the correct mark up (schema or open graph) and getting the right image dimensions and aspect ratio.

If you're not a developer, there are various plugins that will help. I know that the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress works really well and adds the necessary open graph tags. It's then down to getting the correct image dimensions.
