Google+ Tips And Shortcuts: Increase Your Effectiveness [Infographic]

Google+ Tips And Shortcuts: Increase Your Effectiveness [Infographic] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
These tips and shortcuts will help you increase your effectiveness on Google+. There are many extra benefits for being on Google+. This article lists some.

 

You might be asking yourself why you need these tips and shortcuts since you don’t have time to be on Google+ in the first place. I mean, you’ve already got enough social sites to keep up with, right? If you have a website, and you are trying to increase your traffic, Google+ should not be the social site you let slide. The reason can be summed up in one word – Google – and that means search. If nothing else, that is the reason you need to be there.

 

Let me just give you one example of what I’m talking about. If you are on Google+, you can sign up for Google Authorship (if you haven’t already done this, I suggest you do it today, just follow that link). We just wrote about this last week in an article called Google Authorship & It’s Insane Impact On Website Traffic. Bottom line, you’ll get to have your avatar show up in the search results on Google, which will give you a huge bump in web traffic. Only 9% of tech blogs have taken advantage of Google Authorship, which leaves a huge opportunity for you if you haven’t implemented it.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

10 Ways to Understand Buyers Psychology [infographic]

10 Ways to Understand Buyers Psychology [infographic] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Every business wants more customers so they timely enhance the product's, run active marketing campaigns i.e. SEO, social media, email marketing, advertisements, etc. and provides good customer service to become more reachable and reliable for their customers.

 

Sometimes, marketing fails, web design don't covert, product doesn’t work out, advertisements don't provide reliable results, and in simple words customers don't rely on the product. The "secret" to more sales is as simple as understanding just what your buyer expects (and wants) from your business.

 

Above are the 10 studies that is taken over at HelpScout. It reveals such insights into the mind of your customers.

Report: Students On Facebook Study 10 Times Less Than Non-Users

Report: Students On Facebook Study 10 Times Less Than Non-Users | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

We all know that as students progress through their school years, their homework load increases. Fifteen year olds may look longingly back to when they were ten and had a whole lot less work to do at home. According to the handy infographic below, the average 6-8 year old spends 9 hours per week studying, vs. 14 hours per week for college students. That doesn’t seem so awful, especially when you consider that the average student spends 4.39 hours per day watching television.

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

 

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...

Goodbye Textbooks! Students Are Embracing the Move to Digital Learning [Infographic] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Students can’t live without their devices, so schools should embrace the change.

 

Tablets are being adopted at an impressive rate, and tablet purchases are expected to outpace smartphone purchases over the next two years. Tablet ownership among college students has correspondingly skyrocketed and a Pearson Foundation survey found that it has tripled from a year ago. One-quarter of college students currently own a tablet.

The Nature of Black Hat SEO

The Nature of Black Hat SEO | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Even if you are new to SEO, you have already heard the term Black Hat. Believe it or not, the spammy techniques that all professional SEOs do not use and search engines hate, actually evolved along with the White Hat and also lead to constant improvements in the search engine's algorithms.

 

You don't believe me? Take a look at the evolution of the Black Hat SEO.

 

***** I believe this because I lived through much of it AND because things that were white hat yesterday such as driving links to your site from stuff you create for others now defined as "black hat" was "white hat" prior to Penguin/Panda. Google's constantly shifting line in the sand is why this chart makes all hats grey. Marty
