The Fine Art of “Link Love:” A Lesson in Pimping Rides and Boosting Rankings

March 25th, 2009

Link ChainSince my last post broached “Twettiquette” and the process for retweeting and the Twitterverse received the content so warmly, this week I’ll address the fine art of linking. Y’know – those underlined words on websites and blog posts that lead to other websites or related content.

There are ways of hyperlinking text that pulls more weight across the interwebz and with the search engine spiders than others. We’ll talk about what they are and the whatzits and whozits behind the search engine madness. If I were you, I’d grab a bloody mary – this is a fun ride, but one best taken well-lubricated! ;-)

February 26th, 2009

“Ya gotta pick yer ditch to die in, kiddo.”

“Twettiquette” Lesson: The ReTweet

February 19th, 2009

I’ve always felt that good retweeting is akin to being a good journalist: Always cite your sources and don’t be a thief. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Google Alerts Finding Everything?

February 11th, 2009

By Brian Chappell

Most websites and networks are open to being crawled and pinged by social media monitoring tools. In fact social monitoring tools are the first step, as I explain with the Social Media Monitoring Funnel, in acquiring the conversations taken place around you. However most folks I have found think Google Alerts does a good enough job to call it quits. This is very far from the case in my humble opinion.

Google Alerts is a great place to start, but does not track everything. The following is straight from Google on there explanation of what they are able to find and relay to you via alerts:

Nothing…and I mean nothing frustrates me more than getting someone’s voicemail. On a daily basis, I hang up on voicemail and send that person an email, text or Tweet.

I want to be able to deliver my message to its intended audience on my timeline, their availability be damned.

As part of a culture that used to be happy with a seven-second delay for our evening news and sportscasts, I’m here to tell you those days are gone. Well, they are for me, at least.
