5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page | Social Media sites | Scoop.it

Search And Social Meets Content And Influence

 

On April 3, the New York Times reported that LinkedIn is one of many competitors vying for a piece of Google’s search traffic.With over 5.7 billion professionally oriented searches performed on the site last year, LinkedIn has made continued efforts to improve the search experience, adding new features like auto-complete, suggested searches, automated alerts and a smarter query intent algorithm.

 

Content marketing on LinkedIn puts you and your business in front of the people you want to see it. Just like with Google, there is a renewed focus on content at LinkedIn as the company strives to compete with other social networks.A great example of this is LinkedIn’s recent acquisition and integration of SlideShare, a service used for uploading and sharing presentations.

 

Add to this the launch of new products like LinkedIn Today, LinkedIn Influencers (where a hand-picked crew of 200 celebrity professionals present exclusive content), and Sponsored Updates (allowing brands to promote whitepapers and branded content), and marketers have a powerful platform that combines search and social and connects content with influencers.

I think that competition is moving LinkedIn.com to move ahead of the would be outfits that may prove danger to them,In total innovation is good thing and LinkedIn has changed his face nicely in last few weeks by adding new features. They have removed many old ones and has replaced with new outlook. It is good.

Intriguing Networks's curator insight, July 1, 2013 6:38 AM

Klout has been edging along with social analytics and scoring for a while now and now rolling out it's enterprise features. I wonder if they have as yet gripped enough serious social afficionados for this to work?

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, July 1, 2013 9:23 AM
I think Klout scores for brands could work since there is no definitive way to connect top of the funnel (traffic generating) activities to bottom of the funnel conversion. Klout becomes a de facto standard where perhaps nothing else provides an accurate look at the importance or trends within Social Media Marketing. I wrote a piece not long ago about why Klout matters and most of that logic applies to grands and companies as well as individuals.

Are we witnessing the birth of a new Social Network?

Are we witnessing the birth of a new Social Network? | Social Media sites | Scoop.it

Imagine being able to connect with friends, create status updates that can be as detailed as blog posts, check into and recommend local restaurants, find great news stories and share them with connections, upload images and even create short video snippets.

 

Sound familiar? If it sounds like Google+, with maybe some Vine and Foursquare thrown into the mix, there's good reason for that. When Google decided to create their new social network, it was a combination of a new platform and strong tie-ins to other platforms, like YouTube, which had been acquired.

 

So when Marissa Mayer joined Yahoo! as CEO in June, 2012, it's clear that she created a strategy for the Internet Giant to once again become relevant. But what, exactly, that strategy was hasn't been clear. Until now.

BaGua is one of the main methods used to analyze the Feng shui of any given space. Translated from Chinese, it means, 8 areas. The BaGua Map is like an energy map of your home. Just like an accupuncturist maps out areas of your body, with various energy centers, Feng Shui provides us with the BaGua to map the inherent energies within a space. Classical Feng Shui guides you in placing the map in correlation with North South East and West.
 
In working with the BaGua, think in fractal terms. This means the map works on any scale. You may place it over a blueprint of your entire property, the floorplan of your home, or a specific room. You may even use it in space as small as your desktop.
 
The eight life areas with which the map corresponds are:
Career, Wisdom and Knowledge, Family and Health,
Wealth & Prosperity, Fame, Marriage & Relationships,
Children & Creativity, Helpful People & Travel.
