Posted by

 

Back in Orlando from a fabulous trip to LA! Ahhh, I always forget how much I love it there until I go back. We had a fabulous time and the shooting our America’s PremierExperts show for our second Celebrity Branding Experience went great.

There was a lot going on last week in the world of SEO and SMM, including Google’s real-time search results, and Facebook’s Fan Page updates being included in them!

Check out some of my favs from last week…

Lindsay’s SEO and SMM Alerts- 3/1 Addition

This week’s articles with special thanks to @brianhorn @briansolis @webdigi

Getting Found in Google’s Real-Time Search Results
This article is one of my favorites from this week because by “another SEO consultant” he meant me! :) This is one of the coolest things I have seen from Google in a while, and shows where search is headed. If you read nothing else, read this article to see where search is headed. And by sure it check it out for yourself, it really is very cool!
“…If you’re one of the many people that doesn’t see the relationship between social media marketing and search engine marketing…it doesn’t get any more tied in than this. Real-time search results (from Twitter, Facebook and other sources) right in Google’s search results…” read more…

ROI: How to Measure Return on Investment in Social Media
There is a business behind social media, and this article by Brian Solis does a great job of showing you the different measurements for SMM (it’s not just ROI any more). Check it out!
“Over the years, Social Media experts attempted to redefine ROI for a new era of influence. While some introduced alternative philosophies for measuring the nuances tied to social media, others wondered aloud whether ROI simply wasn’t necessary as the tools and methodologies for analyzing yields didn’t yet exist. And furthermore, by focusing on justification and metrics, we were distracted from the primary objective of building relationships and cultivating dialogue…” read more…

Google Analytics for Facebook Fan Pages
Google Analytics on your Fan Page? Yep! There is now a way to track referrals, visitors, etc. Check it out!
“…The workaround we use in our code is to include Google Analytics as an image instead of setting the standard Javascript. This method tracks every visitor to the custom facebook pages on Google Analytics. It required a combination of server side cookie management and an additional tag to the bottom of the facebook fan page. Here are the steps to get Google Analytics working on your facebook fan page.” Read more…

Google Adds Facebook’s Fan Page Updates to Real-Time Search
If you do not have one already, all the more reason to have a Facebook fan page…
“… Google said it would be adding public updates from Facebook Pages, last December, and now the integration is live within its real-time search updates, the company says, although we’re not seeing anything yet. To be clear, as of now, only information provided by Page owners will appear. So shared links, status updates, multimedia, etc. but not users’ comments on Pages…” read more…

 
 
Like any vehicle, it will run smoothly if and only if 1) the right fuel is used, 2) you make it a priority to maintain it, 3) and you have a great mechanic! As a business owner, having your team in place is critical to success. I was happy with my original website; giving birth to it was a process. But after a while, as it grows so do your needs. You change or your brand changes. It was not a coincidence that I met Lindsay Dicks from Celebrity Sites; it was time…call it synchronicity at work. I had been rethinking my website and needed to delegate more of what I was choosing not to do regarding social media and web maintenance. I have never been so impressed by their professionalism, dedication or follow-through. They are there at a moments notice to work through my questions, my ideas or concerns. I give them straight A pluses. They have me for LIFE. - Sallie Felton, Life Coach/Transition Specialist, International Talk Radio Host #1 Best Selling Author, IF I’M SO SMART, WHY CAN’T I GET RID OF THIS CLUTTER?
 
Celebrity Sites® is awesome! They are on top of things all the time and keep you out in front of your competition. Thanks again and again! - Larry Frank (aka Mr. Prepared)
 
 
Dicks Nanton Agency brands Andy Tolbert“I just got off the phone with a reporter for SmartMoney.com for an article about foreclosures that’s going to run on AOL.com in about 2 weeks! She found me by searching on Google and found the press release you did that announced me as a new “expert” for AgentDirectNews.com. Then she went to my website and liked what she saw so she called me up! Imagine, being quoted in an AOL Real Estate story…you can’t BUY that kind of exposure at any price! I knew I was making the right choice to work with you guys and now that has been confirmed ten fold! Thanks for all of your help!” - Andy Tolbert
 
“How many of you Tweet and Twitter? If you’re just trying it out or doing your best to market yourself, check out Lindsay Dicks. She’s the bomb.com when it comes to self promotion.” -Heidi Hatch, Fox 35 News Reporter
