Another week has rolled by, and, as always, many bloggers shared some great information with us. Here are some of the blog posts I found most useful during the past week.
- 5 Facebook Marketing Resources You Didn’t Know About — by Joanna Lord at SEOMOZ. Actually, I knew about three of these, so I felt special when I read her post. Facebook provides a lot of great information for marketers, and Joanna points out some of their tools.
- The 7 Most Important SEO Factors for Bloggers — by John Jantsch at Duct Tape Marketing. Duct Tape Marketing consistently offers great content, and this piece is no exception. SEO doesn’t need to be scary, and John does a great job of explaining some simple ways to help your content get found online. Bonus: John’s post featured a pic from one of my favorite photographers – Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs.
- 8 Small Business Product Landing Pages Critiqued for Conversion — by James Gardner at UnBounce. I was glad to see a good post on landing pages, since that has been our focus here lately.
- Make the Web Faster with mod_pagespeed, Now out of Beta – by Google Webmaster Central. Yeah, I know, this one is a bit geeky, but the first sentence says “Speed Matters,” and it is one of the criteria Google uses in its top secret algorithm to rank pages. It’s a good idea to keep up with trends, so that’s why I put this piece in the mix.
- A Simple Guide to Reddit for Marketers — by Danny Brown. Reddit? Seriously? With all the Twitter/Facebook hoopla in marketing, we can’t forget about all the other great social media marketing tools out there. Even the president of the United States recently put Reddit in the spotlight by using the platform to answer policy questions. In this post, Danny shares a great infographic titled, “The Reddit Marketing Field Guide.” I think you’ll find it useful.
