Social media and SEO both are playing a vital role in driving traffic any blog. It's essential to spend your time wisely on these two different online mediums to reap the best rewards. Lets dig into the details without much ado.. Why social media is the best? Social media sites like Facebook, twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn have very large audience. You can bring massive traffic from any of these sources, but all you need is to have thriving fans in all your networks. The key factor to bring traffic from social media sites is to work only on one social media site at one time, not on all the sources. When you work only on one source, you can show much variance and spend quality time to build audience around your blog using that medium. In other case, you can't build great connections when you're spending time on all the networks simultaneously. One more major reason to consider social media sites to bring traffic is this, there'll be no panda or penguin updates ? You just need to work … [Read more...] about Social Media Vs SEO: Which Is the Best Way to Bring Traffic?
Social network vs social media
I am not sure how this question sounds to you, but I m sure there would be many who will think otherwise. I respect everyone’s opinion but I still feel that social media marketing is over-hyped and as a result of that, most of us are literally wasting our time, money and energy in trying to achieve something that we either don’t get or with little success. I don’t mean to say that you should ignore social media, but it’s just that they are given too much of attention. Benefits of Social Media marketing in Blogging There are two kinds of people who network on social networking sites; first are those who network at the personal level with their friends and family members. Their interaction is 100 percent personal. They share songs, movie trailers, sports clipping and news articles but hardly any blog post. They do but very rare, so the returns on your efforts are low when you target them. They are not looking for anything that you are trying to sell like a web … [Read more...] about Hey Bloggers Focus More on Blogs Than Social Networking Sites

Google launched Google+ social networking site two days back and today I got my hands on Google+ invitation and so far I’m playing with Google+. Here I’m sharing my first-hand experience with Google+. Google+ social networking site looks more like Facebook at the first stage. Moreover, I’m sure those who landed on Google+, must be comparing it with Facebook for sure. Anyways, Google+ can be called as an advanced version of Facebook. Google+ has taken care of all the features which Facebook offers and taken care of controversial Facebook privacy feature. By using social circles, Google has simplified the privacy features. Google+ Homepage: This is how Google+ homepage looks like. More or less looks like a clone of Facebook. Google+ design is simple and elegant. At this moment, it’s ad-free but I wonder, how this homepage will look like advertisements.

As bloggers & digital marketers, we know that images are everything. It helps us make our content visually appealing, get more clicks from social media sites, helps in branding & can also earn you precious backlinks (especially if you know how to create infographics). We all know these facts, but the challenge is creating all of these things on our own. The first thing which I often say to myself is, “I don’t like spending time on Photoshop”. The truth is I don’t know how to use Photoshop & now I don’t have enough time to learn Photoshop or any other time-intensive graphic making tool.
