On Track Tips | Wiser Sites2,165Ten things Cynthia Sanchez and I will NOT talk about during this week’s interview about Pinterest http://jtw.bz/PinBlog1As I was preparing for this week’s program, I was reading article after article about Pinterest for marketing and small business, and it was almost embarrassing how they were saying the same exact thing. Right up front, here are 10 things we won’t be talking about:1.) You need to "engage"2.) Be "authentic"3.) Build a community around your brand4.) Visit others’ boards and pin their things; this will get their attention and they’ll pin yours 5.) Use hashtags6.) Fill out your Pinterest profile7.) Pin two to three times a day8.) Use bigger images9.) Add links to your pins into your G+ posts (G+ and Pinterest play very nicely together) and other profiles10.) Have fun!Tips are good, no doubt, but this week Cynthia Sanchez and I will not be wasting this half hour just to meme out on “Pin all the things.” +Cynthia Sanchez started to use Pinterest in 2011 and in 2012 left her job as a full-time radiation oncology nurse to focus on building her “Oh So Pinteresting” business. Today Cynthia is a leading authority on Pinterest and is commonly found presenting at larger social media conferences and summits. I will be asking Cynthia to share some of her best small businesses success stories. We’ll get into bootstrapping business owners who are juggling social media and other marketing channels - trying to figure out this whole online space - and seeing real success in their small business.If this sounds Pinteresting to you, we’ll see you there!======================================================Start asking questions now AND invite 2 friends!Did you click "Yes" on the event invite?Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - http://jtw.bz/OTTlistListen on iTunes - http://jtw.bz/OTTitunesTweet this - http://jtw.bz/CSTweet1Join us on Twitter using the hashtag #OnTrackTips Future guests include:Yifat CohenJay BaerIan ClearyMark TraphagenVisit On Track Tips and press the BIG red button for your chance to meet the experts and ask them your small business question.http://OnTrackTips.com/========================================¬==============Connect with +Cynthia Sanchez on G+ or Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/CynthiaPins/and visit heThe Pinterest Marketing HOA for All the Things2014-09-22 19:00:00100

SEO Training Dojo6,269This week our special guest will be +Bill Slawski who will be talking about 'Entity Audits'. Not sure what that is? Here's a teaser from Bill;"Before Google announced their Knowledge Base with their words about indexing things instead of strings, I was already working to make web pages "about" Something.We are seeing knowledge panels and rich snippets and sitelinks in search results. Special OneBoxes are also appearing more quickly.In response to those, we've been doing Entity audits for sites, where we look at entities that already appear on sites, and ones that maybe should appear but don't.We've been looking at what shows up when the name of a site, and the domain name for a site are searched for in terms of knowledge panels, related entities, sitelinks,  at the search engines. We're looking at what appears for these at places such as Wikipedia and Freebase an other knowledge bases.I have a couple of examples that I would like to share of how doing an entity audit can make a site richer, and potentially show up for more searches, including some changes on a site from 2005 that set me off on this path. :)"Friday SEO Chat - Entity Audits2014-08-15 19:00:0037

Mark's expertise in Authorship and understanding of search, coupled with his innate ability to educate and reduce complexities to simple "start here" ideas will make this particular episode a great learning experience for my students. Did I mention Mark also has experience with improv? You know he has a thing or two to teach my students about how to master the art of delivery!There are many components to public speaking, and it's usually the parts of delivery we tend to need to work on. Things like volume, appropriate movement and gestures, use of space, tone, and many others are the things many of us forget in our excitement anxiety to speak in front of a crowd. So how do we master these cues that seem like things you either have or you don't? Well, that's for Mark to answer ;)As always I'd also like to thank +John Ellis for running my cameras for me.Live Event URL:Glass in the Class: The Art of Delivery2014-06-25 22:30:0022

Ray Hiltz24,713How is Google Authorship relevant to your business?Google Authorship has been around since 2011 and while more and more people and brands have implemented “rel=author”, there is still a lot of confusion as to what exactly it accomplishes.Some think that it improves search results, others install it for the reported improvement in Click Through Rates (CTRs) by having your face appear on SERPs. Some because they hear it will improve their SERP ranking.To tell us the benefits of authorship and dispel some of the myths, the #GPlusLunchBunch  is very excited to have the authority on Authorship and all round nice guy +Mark Traphagen join us at our virtual lunch table.Mark is the Senior Director of Online Marketing at +Stone Temple Consulting.He is a prolific content creator and my chief source of information relating to online authority.He’s generous with his knowledge and time as is demonstrated by his many appearances on HOAs.If you have questions about authorship and want to know more, join us around the table. However, you’ll have to bring your own lunch (east coast), breakfast (west coast), dinner (UK).Recommended viewing: Mark’s SlideShare: Author Authority for Advanced Search Marketershttp://goo.gl/whr30CThis is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

ISOOSI Research Engine3,476In the latest installment of the weekly ISOOSI Tuesday Chat we are joined by +Debra Mastaler - a true veteran of Internet Marketing.  Together, we shall discuss and explore ways to attract those all-important links and citations to a site or venture that is not yet famed or renowned.How Do You Attract Links Before  You Have Reputation?Years ago, +Mike Grehan (another true veteran marketer) wrote a superb article entitled "The Filthy Linking Rich", where he explained how the same sort of power law that applies to other resources, such as wealth, apply just as much to links.  Just as the rich get richer, so do those with lots of links get more exposure, and thus attract more links.We'll discuss that power law briefly, but mainly we'll focus on how to overcome it.  How do we attract links to a site that is newer, or has so far been seen as less authoritative (its cited less often)?This topic naturally follows from last week where we discussed Starting New Online Ventures, and has a strong relationship to getting that new venture up and running.  As always, expect some wonderful food for thought, and many practical insights.Join +Debra Mastaler   and the  #isoosichat regulars +Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski, and +ISOOSI Research Engine How Do You Attract Links *Before* You Have Reputation?2014-05-20 21:00:0067

ISOOSI Research Engine3,476Special Guest:  Danny SullivanOne of the things that either makes people love or hate SEO the most is how things constantly change.  To those who have been in the industry more than 15 years, even all the pace of change today doesn't seem as extreme in many ways as the days when each month there might be yet another upcoming search engine, or the closure of a search engine you'd used to optimise for and got good traffic from.  In this epic Roundtable discussion, industry leader +Danny Sullivan  joins the regular ISOOSI panel (+Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes)   to talk about how change should be dealt with, anticipated, and adapted to.We'll look at the truth in the old saying "The more things change, the more they stay the same", looking at some of the constant factors of SEO, not least that people themselves have not (yet) changed nearly so much.We'll talk about wether Google's dominance is now too great to challenge, or if a serious potential rival is already out there, be it Apple, or some less-expected challenger.We will look ahead at some of the changes we expect, and discuss ways to deal with such changes.  We'll talk about the things we don't expect to change much over the next few years, which may therefore be the most 'future-proof' areas to invest in for value.We'll also talk about changes to the industry of web marketing itself, drawing upon Danny's insights running SMX as a sign of what people are most (and least) interested in learning today.Change: The Constant of SEO2014-03-25 20:00:00103

Jason T. Wiser17,824Storytelling for Business Building with Chris BroganThere’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake? This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear?That’s why I have invited +Chris Brogan  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business.Chris is the Author of "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link)Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are:⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing?⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today?⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story?If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Did you click "Yes" on the event invite?Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and look for the big RED button.Upcoming Guests:⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients"⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners"Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT Join us on Twitter using the hashtag    #OnTrackTips   ========Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan2014-03-06 19:00:00242

Jess + Scott + You300Last week we unleashed the power of the story.Next week we'll find out about a story in the correct place and time.This week, be it painful or blissful, stories are only effective when received.Believe it or not, your business tells a story, and we don’t mean to your customers. We mean to you. Are you listening? Do you even know what to listen for? To do what? MORE, right? Well, what does that actually mean?This week +Jessica Dewell and +Scott Scowcroft will explore what your business can tell you, and if you don’t like the storyline? Well, that’s part of this week’s show too.Who better to help us explore and dig into this topic than +Jason Frasca? He loves solving technical, operational and business inefficiencies using my unique ability to deconstruct complex problems, and leveraging technology to optimize business performance.Whether looking for new opportunities, ways to grow, building processes, acquiring expertise…first, check in with the business. It gladly gives us information, clues, and areas to explore. Yet, we overlook this attention our business shines on us.Receiving, or active listening, to the business will help identify low hanging fruit (easy to implement ideas), cost savings and time savings.Let’s give our business a bit of love back through active listening - and see how we can tune in and magnify the things that could hold us back or propel us forward by learning how to listen and receive important information.Spoiler Alert: Jason’s in depth knowledge of the how and why of Evernote  allows him to share how operational competency and narrative can touch at the deepest level to create great stories.This is one episode of the JSY! show you’ll not want to miss.YOU (the Y in JSY) matter - come and explore this topic with us. Start the conversation now.(We are a LATE show. Responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay if it isn't a time you can join us live.)*Hashtag: #JSY *Like the topic?

martin shervington829,367Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future.Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too!What is 'Youtility' all about?Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success.You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?”If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility."Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0077

ISOOSI Research Engine3,476+Mark Traphagen joins the ISOOSI chat today at 3pm EST and we're super excited to have him on the show. Mark has been one of the people for me personally (and I know for many others too) that has really been instrumental in highlighting the benefits of Google+. But, not only the easy pickings that are clear to see. Mark evangelizes the use of Google+ as not only a business network but a social network. A social network that is on a different level to anything else we have on the interwebs. He'll be the first to say that it has given him opportunities that would never have existed before it. And I for one share that experience and couldn't agree more.All businesses can learn from this hangout... and we'll start really with the basics too.

He lives in Durham NC, which he regards as Portland OR without a web parody (yet).Mark has been active on Google+ since its third day and has developed a reputation as an expert on using Google+ for business and personal branding, as well as on Google Authorship.When he's not singlehandedly trying to eliminate Google+'s "ghost town" image by posting there at least once every 10 minutes, you'll find Mark playing mandolin in a New Orleans-style second line band called The Bulltowns Strutters, and competing in storyslam events.This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social  is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida. We provide web design and optimization, social media management and consulting, mobile apps (Apple / Android / Windows 8), and graphic design for web promotions.

Leo Messi1+Cristiano Ronaldo To help you gain more followers and supercharge your Google Plus experience, I'm sharing one of my secrets to gaining so many followers - these are my Elite Inner Circle - they have shared circles that they aren't in themselves. What does that mean? It means that they show genuine altruism by helping other people when they won't directly benefit themselves.Along with my Team Elite Engager circles, these are the people who have helped me grow to where I am today. They have my gratitude, and to help them, and to help you grow your followers I am sharing them here.To get to the next level and have a chance to become a Team Elite Engager (and this also applies to people who aren't in this circle), there are six simple steps:1. Make sure you have added me!2. +1 this post3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S #teamelite OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM #teamelite FOR GOOD4. Optionally, comment to let me know what you have done! (this is optional, because my circles often reach the maximum 500 comments).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6. You need to share within 5 days of when the circle was published, as I publish my #teamelite circles weekly, and they take me a day or so to curate. Otherwise it may be two weeks before I pick up your share and you get added to the circle again. This is especially true for my #eliteinnercircle . Therefore, for the best results if the circle is more than a week old, you should share my latest #teamelite and #eliteinnercircle circles, which you can find on my profile page at: https://Plus.google.com/+CristianoRonaldoplus/postsMy Team Elite Engager Circles are shared regularly by other circle sharers - it currently stands at 1000 active sharers, and will be reviewed and reshared regularly, so do yourselves a big favour and become one of the Elite!     #teamelite  You can find my #teamelitecircle and #teameliteengagercircle here:+Cristiano Ronaldo +Fundación Leo Messi +Facebook Fanpage Generator ~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~I don't wish to offend anyone on the internet, so if you would like to be removed from my shared circles, please send me a private message and I won't share your profile in the future.

Why Comments on Google+ Posts Is Now Even More Important

Anyone active on social media wants comments on their posts, but a change on Google+ now rolling out to users makes that even more important.

The change that began rolling out late yesterday affects posts that are reshares of other posts. Previously, the phrase "originally shared" in the display of the original post being reshared linked to that post. Now it is no longer a link.

Instead, there is now only a link to the original post if it had comments. That link now appears at the bottom of the display of the post being reshared (which now is highlighted in a gray box.)

Look at the example below. In this case I had reshared a post by +Antoine Carriere. But Antoine's post had never received any comments. So it has no link below the post.

Google Mobile Weather Time Slider

Great spot by +Thomas E. Hanna | BlogPhoto.tv. I just tried this for myself. Asked the Google app on my iPhone "what is the weather in Durham," and sure enough I get the current conditions with a time slider.

Scroll the slider with your finger and watch the forecast evolve over the next 12 hours. Pretty dang cool.

Mobile-Optimized Interactive Knowledge Graph Cards?

I've been enjoying the evolution of Google's Knowledge Graph Cards, especially as they became more sophisticated in allowing for fast, helpful answers to fact-based queries.

This one really grabbed my attention, though.

In planning for a potential photo shoot this evening, I looked up the weather in Clearwater on my phone. In general, the information card is the same as on desktop: there are tabs for the various days, the current weather and temperature, as well as markers for precipitation, humidity, and wind.

However, on mobile, there is ALSO a slider for adjustments based on time. The slider is easily optimized for a touch screen device, making it simple to tap and drag. As the slider is moved, the information shifts with it, including the large temperature gauge and the weather icon beside it.

On desktop, the card is very different in this regard, providing a simple graph. There are places on the graph where you can click to get time-sensitive information, but that interface would be very clunky on a mobile device.

I know that Google has been rapidly improving their Knowledge Cards, but this is the first time I have seen cards that optimize the user interface based on device.

Marty Weintraub Interviews Me at SMX Social Media

The +aimClear blog has posted a video interview their founder +Marty Weintraub did with me at SMX Social Media.

I talk about why brands should not do social media for social media's sake, and why a clear understanding of brand identity is the first step toward any marketing (not just social!) efforts.

Keeping It Real - Social Branding on the Social Web

This was honestly one of the best Hangout On Air conversations I've ever been in. Yesterday +SEOWiSE brought +David Amerland and me together with ace interviewer +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales to talk about one of the chief passions shared by David and me: personal connections that build reputation, authority and trust online.

David shares the big picture on how such connections are an essential part of semantic search (from his post http://stonet.co/1qW9xJ3), while I zeroed in on how brands need to make use of Personal Brand Representatives in order to make those connections (from my post http://stonet.co/PersonalPunch).

Why the Filter Bubble Is Really a Preference Bubble

Like the World's Most Interesting Man, +AJ Kohn doesn't write a blog post often, but when he does, it's always worth reading. This one is no exception.

Here he takes on the fear that the Internet is sealing all of us into personal filter bubbles (a term popularized by the book The Filter Bubble by Eli Pariser. Eli's thesis is that as search engines and social networks get better and better at personalizing what we see, we are all in danger of lacking perspective and getting locked into our points of view because we only see things that agree with us.

I won't give away why AJ think that's a flawed conclusion because I want you to read his article. He includes the implications for marketers.

Does the Time You Tweet Affect Likelihood of Engagement?

No, is what our huge study of over 4 million tweets seemed to say (see it at stonet.co/TwitterStudySTC)

But there are some nuances that need to be understood.

The takeaway from the time of day data shouldn't be "there is never a best time for anyone in every circumstance "

Rather, what our data shows is that there is no best time that is "one size fits all"

Of course, events and other circumstances will affect relevant engagement. And any individual user will find that his or her audience is more active at some times than others.

Also keep in mind that the chart shows not the number of engagements but the likelihood of getting at least one engagement at a particular time.

So while a tweet at any time may have an equal chance of getting at least one RT or Favorite,... more »

LIVE: Twitter Engagement Unmasked - Study of 4 Million Tweets

See it NOW at http://stonet.co/TwitterStudySTC

Just Published: Our major study, months in the making, of over 4 million tweets.

We analyzed these tweets to see what drove retweets and favorites. Unlike previous Twitter studies, not only was our sample much larger, but we segmented the tweets in new ways, including by Followerwonk Social Authority rating (thanks +Moz!).

Here are just some of our findings (be sure to read the complete study to get the full picture!)

1. We all know that including media (images or video) in your posts is critical to engagement. This is true on every platform. How much? On Twitter, it increases your rate of Retweets of Favorites between 4 to 12 times!
 
2. Our data breaks the myth that Time of Day is an important factor on Twitter. There is no evidence at all to support that.
 
3. Hashtags and inclusion of links can be a small positive for most people, but not so much that you should go far out of your way to add them.
 
4. Because we used such a large sample size, one of the things we were able to do was break out each metric by social authority.  Whether or not some factors are positive for engagement varies with social authority.  For example, including hashtags appears to be a negative for high authority profiles!
 
We also evaluated many other factors in our study, so please check out the full post to see the rest!

New: Any Google+ Photographer Can Now Be on Chromecast!

Google's Chromecast has always featured screensaver images from Google+, but for the most part they've come from Google employees or top pro photographers.

Now anyone who shares photos publicly on Google+ may have their photos shown on Chromecast and via Google Fiber. There are qualifications, see the post below.

Give more people a chance to fall in love with your photos

Love your photos and want to share them with the world? Now your epic sunsets, favorite landscapes, and beautiful ocean views can be enjoyed by people around the world as featured photos on products like Chromecast or Google Fiber. It’s your chance to let your photos shine and brighten living rooms worldwide. 

To potentially get featured, share your best photos publicly on Google+. Not every public photo will be featured, so here are some tips on what works best. The more popular your photo is on Google+ (+1s and comments) the more likely it is to be featured. Also, to be featured a photo must:

* be a landscape oriented photo (horizontal), as opposed to a portrait photo (vertical) 
* have a minimum resolution of 1920x1080
* not include people
* not include watermarks or text overlays 
* be posted by their owner

The photography shared on Google+ is breathtaking and we want to help you showcase your best shots with the world. Of course, only publicly-shared photos are eligible to be featured, and you can let us know if you’d rather not participate.

Why Comments on Google+ Posts Is Now Even More Important

Anyone active on social media wants comments on their posts, but a change on Google+ now rolling out to users makes that even more important.

The change that began rolling out late yesterday affects posts that are reshares of other posts. Previously, the phrase "originally shared" in the display of the original post being reshared linked to that post. Now it is no longer a link.

Instead, there is now only a link to the original post if it had comments. That link now appears at the bottom of the display of the post being reshared (which now is highlighted in a gray box.)

Look at the example below. In this case I had reshared a post by +Antoine Carriere. But Antoine's post had never received any comments. So it has no link below the post.

Why Comments on Google+ Posts Is Now Even More Important

Anyone active on social media wants comments on their posts, but a change on Google+ now rolling out to users makes that even more important.

The change that began rolling out late yesterday affects posts that are reshares of other posts. Previously, the phrase "originally shared" in the display of the original post being reshared linked to that post. Now it is no longer a link.

Instead, there is now only a link to the original post if it had comments. That link now appears at the bottom of the display of the post being reshared (which now is highlighted in a gray box.)

Look at the example below. In this case I had reshared a post by +Antoine Carriere. But Antoine's post had never received any comments. So it has no link below the post.

Why Did Google Make This Change?
My speculation is that Google+ wants to "reward" or promote the version of content that is getting engagement. If the original post has comments, now the reader is alerted to that fact, and clicking on that notice enables one to get to that discussion.

In other words, for Google+, discussion trumps time priority. In Google+'s valuation, a post is valuable not because it was shared first, but because it is generating discussion.

Google+ Communism
This devaluing of "original ownership" has actually always been a part of the very structure of Google+. I observed early on, for example, that a reshare of one's post by a higher authority profile would usually outrank the original in Google Search. (See http://stonet.co/1eZujxB). 

So in the Google+ world battles over who shared something first (as if he or she were "owner" of the share) are meaningless. Google+ is putting the emphasis on community, and community happens where the discussion happens.___

How Facebook's Search Provides an Organic "Back Door" for Marketers

A new post by +David Amerland ("Facebook Graph Search Takes One More Step Into the Semantic Web" read it at http://stonet.co/1D9OTdX) contains a  brilliant insight toward the end. 

David explains why Facebook's search is so much more limited than Google's search (it has to do with computing power and the difficulties of disambiguation of queries), and yet provides a little-realized "end run" for businesses around Facebook's much-publicized throttling of organic reach within the platform itself.

Read his post (http://stonet.co/1D9OTdX) to find out how that works. Hint: If you are already a reputable business with great products or services, and are doing your content/social/community marketing properly...you don't have to do a thing!

Some Google+ desktop users are seeing what +martin shervington describes below

Google+ post change re: click through on reshare.
A reshared post has the comments underneath as clickable, but the 'originally shared' is no longer clickable at the top.
