"Here are a few of Gene’s suggestions for writing stronger headlines:

  • State the claim as a paradox. (“How a Bald-Headed Barber Saved My Hair!”)
  • Use numbers and measurements. (“Who Ever Heard of 17,000 Blooms From a Single Plant?”)
  • Connect the method or mechanism to the benefit it delivers. (“Float Fat Right Out of Your Body!”)"

The Social Media Cat-a-pult is a device that has been assembled to help you challenge the way you think and practice. It’s not a step-by-step manual or a one-size-fits-all. The  cat-a-pult can be reassembled to suit your specific needs. It will hopefully act as a launch pad for helping your think about the stuff you have done before, and how that could change that in the future.  The cat-a-pult embodies approaches for becoming more agile, tribal, collaborative, and peer-to-peer.

Try using both forms of content to give your online marketing the one-two punch it needs. Are you still unsure about video marketing?

How Social Media Impacts SEO and Site Ranking: infographic

How Social Media Impacts SEO and Site Ranking: infographic | Social Media sites | Scoop.it

Search engine optimization has not been dependent on a minimal number of factors for a long time now, such as number of times a keyword appeared on a page, and it continues to become a more complex web of on and off-page factors every month. One of the more recent factors that has had an impact on search ranking is social media.


This infographic breaks down ways that social media influences the visibility of your website in search results, including:

 

Social media can help search engines find and index your content faster Likes, shares, retweets, etc. indicates to search engine that content is new and interesting, often leading to a temporary increase in rankingsYour content will increase in search results for people connected to youIncreases domain authority and the number of inbound links to your website

Jayne Courts's comment, May 22, 2013 3:54 AM
Venkatesh - if I am able I give my site as much media support as I can. As a social media trainer I need to 'try out' media before I can teach others to use it and give an insight into which is useful and which is not. So I tend to put my site and what I am doing out on the various social media platforms at least twice a day - I don't over emphasise my site because that can be counter productive (people switch off if all they see from you is self-promotion) and so it is keeping your presence alive but not switching off potential clients by constant ME, ME, ME. I perform both SEO services and social media training for others (see - just a bit of self promotion LOL)
Stephanie Smetana's curator insight, July 9, 2013 7:17 PM

This infographic is a great way to depict many of the articles I've previously pointed out that cover SEO and social media. It is almost easier to explain the relationship in an image format, especially for those who don't have a background in SEO.

 

There are many other factors that go into how much social media truly affects SEO, so there is more to be explained after this. But this is a great introductory image. It also emphasizes the speed with which social media makes an impact.

As it turns out, social media and search go hand-in-hand...


From Facebook and Twitter, to Pinterest and MySpace (yes, it still exists), social media users are often on the search for… something.

For marketers, understanding the searches that lead to improved engagement is critical.

To that end, Azntaiji Multimedia and SocialRadius have produced a new infographic highlighting exactly what so many of us are searching for.
