SEO and SMM Alerts- 4/1/11 Addition

So I thought about doing something clever for April fools… But, I quickly realized that my creative juices have been used up for the week and I came up with nothing… so no April fools jokes here- however… if you think about it Google’s +1 might have been an April fools joke released two days early…

What is Google’s +1- well it’s Google’s attempt to make search results more relevant.

You can read more here ==> Google’s +1

First of all, the name is dumb… but even once I get past that- and although it’s not completely fully function yet- the tests that I ran yesterday don’t excite me.

The REAL problem I see here is if my network is going to influence me because I see that a good friend of mine “+1ed” something the only way I am going to see that is IF I am logged into Google and IF I can connected to them via Google. Right now I only have 7 contacts according to Google… clearly I have a log way to go. But am I the only one? I don’t think so- we are connecting on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and other social sites- but not Google. Google’s buzz was a flop and unless they bring in your social circle from other social media sites, I’m not sure how much of an impact this will have (yes, they are talking about bringing in Twitter now… but even then, I think it’s Facebook you have to go after and I don’t think that will happen). So we shall see, but at the moment- I’m not excited or worried.

Next week expect your alerts to be a whole lot wiser as I turn a year older on Monday…. Ok, so they won’t be, but I hope you enjoy them just the same! :)

Have a great weekend and enjoy this week’s alerts!

6 Tips for Creating Valuable Branded Content

“The rise of search and social marketing has not changed this basic truth about the way that the web works. When people link to you, they’re linking to your content. When they share via social networks, they’re sharing your content. It means that great content should be just as important to marketers as it is to the people using the Internet to talk, learn and buy. It turns out that content is still king.” …Amen.

Just wanted to take a minute to thank Celebrity Sites. Making that first impression of what our business is about is very important. Celebrity Sites has done more in just a couple of months than we did in the last 6 years which was nothing because we tried different things but were just were not on track. You knew where to start and how to get there in lighting speed. You guys not only listened to our ideas but gave some great ideas. Whenever we needed to talk to you, you were right there, by email or phone – you name it, you responded. We are so excited every day to see Larry’s Big Idea take shape. The website is second to none thanks to Lindsay and is improving weekly. The ideas that Jack and Nick come up with at each meeting are awesome. If anyone out there is considering launching their business to just the next level forget it. Get in the elevator with Celebrity Sites and they will take you to the top floor (Penthouse). Stay tuned for more! Kimberlee Frank
 
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)
 
 
Lindsay is the best Web marketer in the world. Our website is incredible…! -Don Bergis
 
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
 
“It’s always scary changing your website even when you know you need an update. Lots of times you feel like you are on an island and the people developing your website could care less if they respond to your concerns or not. Not only did Lindsay and her staff stay in constant contact with me through the entire process, they responded immediately to each question, and improved on my own ideas for the site. They thought of things that I would have never considered and have also taken my haphazard social media postings and formed a consistent strategy that is sure to blow the doors off anything I have done before. I feel like I have gotten many times over my money’s worth already. Thanks Lindsay and team!” -Dr. Chris Griffin, Ripley, MS, The Capacity Academy
