Top 10 Social Media News Topic Pages On Scoop.it

top 10 social media

I have an on again, off again love affair with social media marketing that not many people understand. Sure there is a great potential to generate tons of traffic from the sites. I for one however don’t really get all the much from them. Maybe I’m not paying enough lol. The real issue is commitment to social media marketing and knowing where to share your content to get the ball rolling.

Google Determines Quality Using Panda

It’s pretty much well known within the search engine optimization space that the Panda algorithm changes are what determines how content quality.  Unfortunately is that there are so many different factors that may or may not be a factor that we as website owners can definitively say apply to our content creation methods.

In this video SEO experts Bill Slawski, Ammon Johns, David Harry, Mark Traphagen, and Eric Enge dig deeply into the topic.

Let me warn you a bit here though, these guys are all technical in nature so if you really want to learn all the nuts and bolts they are great guys to follow.

If your new to SEO and the technical aspects of the whole process then you may find yourself lost during a couple portions of the video.  Heck, even I had to research a couple of the topics that they were talking about in order to be a bit more clear.

That being said however, you will be able to come away with some different factors that you can apply to your content marketing strategy in order to ensure that your website gets as much traffic as possible from the Google search results.

Takeaways

Some key points that I took out of the video

  • The original Panda patent was written as a guideline for Google’s internet team in order to ‘grade’ websites.
  • Freshness of content actually has a factor on a per topic basis.  i.e. if the topic doesn’t typically result in fresh content being generated then freshness will have less importance.
  • Authorship is really a factor in search.
  • Is the quality of the content low.
  • Does the website have a negative reputation.
  • Page layout is a factor.
  • Website lacking maintenance or updates is a Panda factor.
  • Spelling and Grammar play a small role in Panda.
  • Its definitely possible to recover from Panda.

What are your key takeaways from the video?

 

Don’t Hold Yourself Back From Achieving Your Dreams

Unsuccessful people blame other people for their failures and/or lack of significant success because nothing is harder for people do then look at themselves in the mirror.

By doing so they will realize that the only thing holding them back from achieving their dreams is themselves.

Its true…..

Take a look at your daily activities in your business and ask yourself.

“Is this helping make me better?”

If the answer is no, then why in the world are you doing it?

Or if your a procrastinator type personality like me, why in world aren’t you doing it?

We as human beings fear failure and we fear that when we take risks or actions we are going to look like failures.

And, you are.

But it’s OK.

dreams

Failure is a good thing because that is how ninety nine percent of us learn anything, through our failures we find the fastest and easiest way to success.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can not do something.  Or what your doing is scam.

Don’t let other people’s limiting beliefs in themselves hinder you in achieving your dreams.

There are people in this world who thrive on the failures of others and work towards their happiness by holding you back from yours.

These are the people that are always there to complain about one thing or another every waking moment of the day while your around.

Then at the next possible moment they are pointing out your flaws to other people in order to show how smart or proficient they are.

These people are nothing but human parasites.

And like most parasites, if the host (that’s you) does something to remove that food that they need to survive (your self doubt or worry) then they starve and fall out of your life.

We all know these killers of dreams and the sooner you separate them out of your life, the better.

Small Business Marketing Online Is About Being Sexy

small business marketing

Small business marketing online provides the opportunity for small business owners to compete with the big national brands on the internet. Thus leveling the playing field for everyone with the right knowledge and skill to pull off a successful campaign. The key to starting off right online is to chose the right medium to begin your online marketing campaigns.

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last, create what you will. — George Bernard Shaw

I Know That You Fear Failure

Let me tell you something right now that most people in the small business marketing world won’t bother saying just because its the unpopular thing to do.

Your going to fail, and your going to fail a lot.

The fact of the matter is that no matter how much you plan.

No matter how well you factor in every possible event that can happen when starting your business.

Your going to have failures.

Your first product might not sell as well as you hoped, or even at all.

Your first call to a potential client might not turn into a subscriber to your services.

Your first website might not get an ounce of traffic from anywhere.

Your lead capture pages might not catch anything more than dust.

Your going to fail.

And you fear that failure.

You hold yourself back from trying out new things, from buying new courses, from building new websites.  You hold yourself back because of your fear.

Failure Is Progress

Failure is progress.

Let me say it again, failure is progress.

When you fail you learn ways that don’t work in that particular situation.

You learn words that push your clients away.

You learn design elements that keep your website visitors from signing up to your email list.

You learn copy that doesn’t convert to sales.

Failure is progress because it teaches you what doesn’t work.

So the next time that you take on a project.

Or the next website you design.

Or the next sales letter you write your more confident.

You’ll know more about performing that task.

You know that with your last failure your one step closer to gaining the success that your looking for.

What I know about you is that you have greatness within you that other people only wish they had.

 

 

 Push Yourself to Be Better

There are tons of motivation videos all over the internet these days.  Most of them are pretty darn good too.

Have you noticed that a lot of them are geared towards athletes?

This is because those who are pursuing some sort of athletic event are always having to break through plateaus in their training.

Weight lifters get to a certain point where their routine is not working for them any more.  The results that they are seeing seems to stagnate.

So these men and women ask change their routines, add in a new exercise, or even increase the intensity to build endurance, they say push yourself.

Runners fall into this same trap as well.

I used to run 7 miles a day, it typically took me 45 minutes to do it.

Over time however I wasn’t improving.  Sure the seven miles was easier every time I did it.

But that same 7 miles always took me that same 45 minutes.

I had to push myself harder every day just to shave that 10 or 15 seconds off my run.

I had to push myself to be better

Push Yourself to Be Better In Business

You have to understand that in the business environment its pretty much the same way.

That is why these athletic themed motivational videos resonate with you so well.

If your in any kind of business you always have to be testing.

You always have to be working to make your current products better.

You always have to be working to make new products that do something others can not.  Or in a way others are not.

You always have to push yourself to make your business something better.

If you chose not to do that, your business will die.

No, probably not over night, but slowly and as surely as the wind blows your customers will leave you.

They will leave you for those that are following the mantra, push yourself.

Push yourself in your marketing.

Push yourself in your outreach.

Push yourself in your product development.

Push yourself in your customer service.

When you do, your customers will push your business to new height you probably couldn’t have imagined in the beginning.
