10 Tips To Improve Google AuthorRank To Increase Traffic | Social Media Marketing for Your Business | Scoop.it
In the last couple of posts, we have been talking a lot about AuthorRank; what it is, and how it differs from PageRank. So by now, you should have a pretty good idea of what's going on, or should I say, what's gonna happen in the near future.

Seth's Blog: The cure or the story?

Seth's Blog: The cure or the story? | Social Media Marketing for Your Business | Scoop.it

"The plumber, the roofer and the electrician sell us a cure. They come to our house, fix the problem, and leave. The consultant, the doctor (often) and the politician sell us the narrative. They don't always change things, but they give us a story, a way to think about what's happening. Often, that story helps us fix our problems on our own. The best parents, of course, are in the story business. Teachers and bosses, too."

It would seem we marketers also need to be in the story business,-- unless we have a cure.

We are all self-promoters but there is a way to do it and a way not to do it. Usually when you do it wrong, you get your hands slapped. That is a service afforded to the newbies who are feeling the system out. Sometimes the vets need a reawakening, too. :)

MyKLogica's curator insight, March 21, 2:07 PM

Personalmente, los denomino de formas diferentes, "Gestión" y "Curación" de contenidos, puesto que aunque en la gestión no se aporta el valor diferencial del punto de vista del curador, aún así es una gran labor la de seleccionar buen contenido y ayudar en su difusión.


Personally I call them differently as content "management" and "curation"; as though with management we haven´t the added value of the personal point of view of the curator, still it is a great job to find and select good, quality content.

This one slide alone summarizes the major trend of these past few years.


In other words, Social Media is becoming the new SEO. 


This has at least 2 consequences for Content Marketers:


1. Content Marketing is becoming more and more important: companies can't use old fashion backlinking techniques anymore.


2. Content needs to be shareable and target humans - not robots. In particular content curators who will amplify their content impact by adding the right context to the right audience.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 30, 2013 7:33 PM

This is a good visual to explain the importance of good content.

Neil Ferree's comment, October 31, 2013 11:19 AM
Social Shares is the New SEO. Sure, links let the bots know there are other sites (authors) who find your content useful but when someone publically "shares" your content with their social connections, this social signals evokes trust in the author's content and authority.
