Trends in Social Media

Posted on Tue,Nov 22, 2011 @ 10:00 AM

Social media guru Jeff Bullas predicts some trends in the field on his blog.

"Social Mobile"
Smart phones with high speed Internet have altered society. Facebook and Twitter apps let people interact with their social networks from anywhere.

"Socialization of Search"
Increasingly, Google and Bing take social networks into account (social signals) when tweaking their search algorithms.

"Geo-Targeting of Social Media Marketing"
Smart phones also allow for local "check-in" applications like FourSquare and Google Places. Location-based marketing is now possible.

"Social Commerce"
You can now shop on social networks like Facebook without leaving the site.

"Social Gaming"
Easy to use games integrated into social networks have started to generate significant revenue from casual players.

"Global Magazine Super Blogs"
Traditional print media, and their online presences, receive far less traffic than global blogs like the Huffington Post. Blogs on a variety of topics attract millions of readers each month.

"Global Micro Niche Business"
Geography, technology and distance no longer restrict niche industries, which can now become multi-million dollar businesses. Even more so than the Internet, social networks enable this success.

Optimizing Google Places

Posted on Tue,Aug 23, 2011 @ 10:00 AM

Google Places is a free listing service for local businesses that allows customers to find things like address, hours of operation, and store photos. James Dunaway on BloggingPro gives some tips on how to optimize a businees listing on Google Places.

Get Verified
Verifying your listing ensures that it will show up on Google search engine results pages. Verification can be done through Phone SMS, Phone Call or through mail. Google will provide a PIN for you to enter into your account.

Build Citations
Building strong citations of your business address and phone number on other listings and sites will cause Google to rank you higher.

Don't Use Your Primary Keyword in the Business Name

Use a Local Phone Number
Google will rank local numbers higher than toll-free numbers.

Use the Same Address and Phone Number in Your Website
This is in-line with building citations.

Allow reviews on your listing. Encourage customers to share their experiences.

Add up to 10 images. Upload your logo. Include keywords in image names.

Get Star Ratings on Google Results Pages
Google displays star ratings for businesses with at least five reviews.

Reviews from Other Sites
Google checks the following while ranking Google Places listings:
  • Yahoo
  • City Search
  • Insider Pages
  • Service Magic
  • AVVO
  • Angie‟s List
  • Judy‟s Book
Choose the best category that suits your business but never use keywords.
