Man time flies….doesn’t seem like I haven’t blogged in 9 days. I’ve been extremely busy working on my social signals for my website. What are social signals you ask? Social signals are the likes, shares, votes, pins, or views people place on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or other social media sites that filter out to the various search engines.
Many people are obsessed with likes, views, etc., but in the online business world these are VERY important. It tells the search engines that you are “important” and what your content that is shared or liked is worthy of a higher ranking on their platform. If something you are saying or doing is popular, the search engines want “in”. If you’re popular, they will coddle you and rank you higher than the other guy, but this is for their own advertising benefit, not yours (more views to their customers = more views for them).
Nevertheless, I’ve been busy creating a new Facebook Page, Instagram Page and Twitter account. I’ve created 10 days worth of content with just some inspiring quotes/sayings which i use daily to keep me on track. Might as well pass on the inspiration right? In the process, I can capitalize on the social signals when people like, share, view or whatever. These new accounts will help increase my social presence as well as increase traffic on my website. I’ve also been very busy answering questions on Quora, which is basically an information website where knowledgeable people share their knowledge with people who need answers. In my case, Affiliate Marketing questions.
So there you have it, why I’ve been neglecting my blog. Also, this is why I’m writing this at 5am……so much to do and so little time in the day. So give a visit to my new social signal sites below. Let me know what you think, give a like, share, follow, etc. and have a great day!
