Managing the negative on #SocialMedia | SM | Scoop.it

"An important aspect of participating in social media is having a disaster plan. If you are responsible for your company’s social media efforts, you need to make these plans immediately. What will you do if and when negative sentiments arise? Who will be notified and at what point? A study by Econsultancy found that only 34% of companies surveyed escalate issues raised in social media so that the responsible team is notified."

Your “How-To” Post Will Fail If You Don’t Use These Techniques

Your “How-To” Post Will Fail If You Don’t Use These Techniques | SM | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when you could write a simple “how-to” blog post and rank in the top search results. Why is that? Two very good reasons.

 

First, all of the general and highly-competitive posts like “how-to blog” or “how-to find a roommate” are already written.

 

The other reason is Google Panda. Remember Google’s update this past year that took down a lot of the content farms? That algorithm was designed to penalize short and shallow articles and reward high-quality content.

 

Now, I’ve got good news and bad news for you.
