7 Habits of Highly Effective SEOs

7 Habits of Highly Effective SEOs | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Do you want to be a successful SEO? Well who doesn’t, right?

 

After being in the SEO space for over 10 years I’ve had the privilege of meeting thousands of them. And just like any industry, only a small percentage of them are actually successful.

 

So it hit me… why are some of these SEOs good at what they do while others aren’t? And after thinking about it for a while, I realized that it came down to these 7 habits.

 

1. Effective SEOs practice it

It’s not hard to become a SEO. You can read it about online, you can buy a few books, and within weeks you’ll have the lingo down...

It’s Relationships, Stupid! The Small Business Return on Relationships

It’s Relationships, Stupid! The Small Business Return on Relationships | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Since I’ve been living in the South, I can’t help but fall in love with people like political strategist James Carville who announced, “It’s the economy, stupid”. He was explaining how a virtual unknown political candidate won against an opponent who had everything going for him. In his mind, people think—and vote—with their bank accounts.

 

While this may apply to the world of politics, it’s not necessarily true in business. Yes, people like to save money whenever possible. Nevertheless, if money were the only consideration for consumers, the big box stores would’ve completely wiped out local businesses years ago. Instead, small businesses continue to survive—and thrive—even in a struggling economy.

 

How is this possible? It’s relationships, stupid!...

Promote Yourself By Using a Different Approach

Promote Yourself By Using a Different Approach | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Thank you. You are the reason why I’m writing. Without you, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing this very minute. That’s the truth. I write because you read, and because you care. And, this post is really all about you. Keep reading, and you’ll understand why.

 

Let’s build strong relationships. That’s the thing about marketing. It used to be true, and now it’s the truth again, and I believe that it will be true forever. Relationships is the most important part of any marketing. But it’s also the hardest part.

 

Content is not the most important part of marketing

 

Some say content is the King, and that content is and will always be the most important part of marketing. It seems that close to everybody in the blogosphere are talking about inbound marketing...

Can Social Media Make You Truly Happy?

Can Social Media Make You Truly Happy? | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

“You are what you tweet.” – Alex Tew.


I’ve found myself wondering whether social media is all it’s cracked up to be.


Sure it makes it easier to connect with people from all over the world, from Nigeria to Nicaragua and from Pakistan to Poland, but how much satisfaction and contentment are we really getting from this online craze?


Social Media And Value
It’s common these days to see the youth of today heavily engaged in social media, chatting to their friends about any topic under the sun. They’re either on Facebook or Google+, or they’re on Twitter telling the world about the strange homeless man they’ve just walked past...

4 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Relationships

4 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Relationships | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

One main facet of social media is its emphasis on creating and maintaining relationships.

 

All the content you create, all the following you build, each of these is designed to create and foster more intimate relationships with people, in some cases, people you might not have met any other way.

 

What’s interesting is social media is changing the foundation of the ways we relate. This article will examine how social media is changing our interpersonal psychology and what you can do about it.

 

Why Should You Care?

This has important implications for business because business, after all, is comprised of interpersonal relationships.

Relationships Have More Value Than Links

Relationships Have More Value Than Links | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Link building is one of the essential components of a strong SEO campaign. The more quality, one-way links you have pointing to your site, the better trust factor your site has. Links also help drive targeted traffic through to your site, which in turn can increase your conversion rate. But I’ve seen a lot of site owners get so focused on getting links that they sacrifice their online reputation in order to get them. Link exchanges, paid links, links to splogs (spam blogs) and “bad” sites (pornography, gambling, alcohol) all detract from you online reputation and trust factor. Besides, the link is not the most important thing in itself...
