Social Media Footprint
Kudos to those who started early in the process and continue to participate, engage and add content via Social Media Platforms.
Whether you are doing it for you or your company.

You have first mover advantage.

That advantage is showing up in search results!

Raise your hand if you every Googled your name?
  • What did you find?
  • Were there other people with your same name out on the Internet?
  • What did the Internet search results reveal to you?

Now lets talk business…

How are you monitoring your Social Footprint for your business? Your competitor?

Think Keywords!

Those words or string of words you input into Google to see what search results it produces. Are you on page 1 of Google? Page 10? Not on Google at all?

Nothing is static. Either you are moving forward or going backwards. You are in control.

Social Media Footprint – Tips

1. Continue to expand your participation in Social Media Platforms. The more platforms, the broader your reach.

2. Think keywords…what words best describe you? What words or phrases best describe your business? What words or strings of words are people inputting into the search engines to find you? Don’t know, ask clients, employees, family and friends.

3. Continue to analyze and tweak your keywords and keyword phrases. If they can’t find you on the Internet, Houston…we’ve got a problem.

4. Search Engines are always looking for fresh content to index. If you are not in the game, the score will not be in your favor.

5. Get in the game with fresh content. One of the best ways to get fresh content is to start a blog. You are in total control of what to say, when to say it. The best part is your ability to utilize the proper keywords and keyword phrases to starting winning more and more.

6. Make the commitment to get in the game and stay in the game. Winners never quit.

7. It’s OK to fail forward. All of us will make mistakes. The faster you make them, the faster you correct them, the faster you will SUCCEED!

Superb blog you have here but I was curious
if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked
about here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?

I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not
seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.
Appreciate it!
