    [Blog] What should you buy from a social media savvy agency?
    Mechanics: You don’t need to know how to code a blog or customize a Facebook fan page to build one into your marketing activities.  …buy the right help from the right agency. Okay…the other day I blew a fuse about social media consultants selling smoke screens and mirrors.  ( read my rant here ). Which of course begs the question — what SHOULD you buy from someone who actually has an expertise in melding social media into the rest of your marketing efforts?  And yes…at MMG we do all of this but so do many other qualified and competent consultants).

    Calls To Action In Social Media & Blogs Really Work [Infographic]. 'As with so many things in the digital age, there’s good and bad that comes with social media. To ask the question of whether or not it’s good or bad is actually pretty foolish; a meal given to a homeless person is a good act but if it’s loaded with poison it’s a bad act. There are more than 50 shades of gray when it comes to social media. The real question is whether or not social media has had a positive or negative effect on the world in general.

That’s why they recently published a PDF document that is a one-page cheat sheet for beginning webmasters to help them learn the basics of search engine optimization. These few suggestions Google offers won’t guarantee your website a page 1 ranking, but they do give you the basic run down on what Google is looking for from websites. It’s pretty simple, really.

    [Blog] Search Rankings Aren’t Man Vs. Robot
    Jennifer Ledbetter wrote about something on her blog last week that not many people know about. She explained that when your web pages hit the No. spot in Google rankings, they are then reviewed by real human eyeballs. It’s not all “ man vs. machine ,” she said. That’s an important thing to understand. Search rankings are not just based on algorithms. If you do well and get your pages ranked for keywords that you target, you’ll have to get through a human reviewer. If your web pages can stand the scrutiny of that reviewer, they may stay at the top.

What should you if you find your small business not having the ranking in Google Places that you think it deserves? Will writing a letter to Google make it better? Not likely.

That is, do you use the same anchor text all the time or do you strive to create a more diverse link portfolio? The truth is most SEOs only use one primary keyword for their anchor text. Link diversity means several things. It isn’t all about anchor text. That’s only one part of the equation. The key is to build a link portfolio that looks natural. within your niche.

    For the sake of this Blog post, we'll be focusing on writing, but these types of personas can also apply to content created in images, audio and video.

Beyond being salacious (more on that here: The Secret To Getting Attention ) and using headlines to bait the reader into your world, the core of the content has to resonate with your audience. There is a whole lot more to making great content. Experience. Opinion.
