After HashTag Facebook Launches ‘trending stories’

Trending topic facebook

The most popular Social networking site Facebook launched its new feature ‘trending stories’. The new Facebook feature is now being launched in India as part of a gradual roll out, and is so far available only to a few users in the country.

Facebook’s take on trending topics is a little different from Twitter’s. Facebook will also explain that why particular topic is popular. On the other hand, Twitter only lists the popular topics on the website, without any details on the reason they are popular among users.

Trending topic facebook

 

Facebook and Twitter trending topics are similar to each other based on location and interest of the user. Mobile user can’t see this feature of Trending topics, but the company said it is testing the feature in its app for smartphones and tablet computers. On the other hand mobile version of twitter is still showing its tending topic via Twitter application.

Really Its a good and interesting feature of Facebook because last year company rolled out the hashtags, one of the most popular features similar to Twitter.

10 Facebook Marketing Tips for Managing your Business Page

Now a days Facebook Marketing is increase day by day because of its traffic and user engagement. Every small big company managing their Facebook business pages but due to lack of knowledge about Facebook Marketing they fail to get good response. Let say an example about e-commerce Facebook page. Posting various products day by day and sharing website links will not work. You have t think out of box and adopt some Facebook marketing strategies.  Here I am sharing 10 Facebook Marketing tips that you should know :

1. Cross Check your Setting From Admin Section of Facebook page:-

Facebook marketing Tips

Posting ability allow user to post on page timeline as well as anyone can add photos and video on page timeline. You can also hide post the post from Posting Ability. I am saying because any of your Facebook page Fans have left a negative feedback on your timeline then it would throw a negative impression to other fans. So you have to monitor your Facebook page for avoiding these problems. Set Message Option enable for everyone so that they can message you privately. Tagging ability means anyone can tag their friends in Photos and videos post by you. Lets understand about Tagging from Facebook 

When you tag someone, they’ll be notified. Also, if you or a friend tags someone in your post and the post is set to Friends or more, the post could be visible to the audience you selected plus friends of the tagged person.

Tag people in your posts

Add tags to anything you post, including photos and updates. Tags can point to your friends or anyone else on Facebook. Adding a tag creates a link that people can follow to learn more.

Tell people about stuff they’re in

Adding tags can let people know when they’re in photos or other things you share. People you tag can receive a notification so they can see your post. The post may also go on the person’s profile and appear in their friends’ news feeds.

Help tag things other people missed

You can tag other people’s photos and posts to help them add details. Your name appears with the tag, so it’s always clear where it came from.” 

Now come to Similar Page Suggestions, set this option enable by check mark because your page will be in list of suggestion of similar pages people might like on a page Timeline. See this picture below:

2. Find Average reach and engagement from Facebook Insight:- 

Faceb0ok Insight option is very interesting option for Facebook pages admins to get the details about user engagement on their Facebook Page. With the help of Facebook insight option a page admin can find that in which type of content, Facebook fans are interested.

3. Add Facebook Page Tabs:-

Your Page has a standard set of “tabs,” including a wall where posts and comments are published along with Info tab with general information about your company. You can see in the example in the Pic below:-

As you can see in above pic I have added lots of social Facebook tab. In this way your business page will look more fabulous as well as more professional. Expert says that if you have Facebook page then include Welcome tab as Custom tab. I have also add other Tabs Like Google Plus and Twitter. If you want to add same then Click here and add Facebook tab.

4. Assign Admin Roles:- 

Page admins can have 5 different types of roles with different work role. Only Manager have rights to change the role as per need. There is no limit of adding page admins for your Facebook page but make sure to give admin rights to trustworthy person. In below pic you can see a different role of admins:

5. Regular updating and Keep Content Fresh:-

Give fans a good reason to come back to your page frequently by adding fresh content on a regular basis. Remember that regularly updating the page doesn’t need a significant amount of extra effort.

6. Photos Vs Links:- 

I think this is very important question about sharing links or Photos on your Facebook Page. As I have already explained about Soical Spam in my recent blog Post and I think you have understood which is better Photos or Links. Add some good royalty free Images and in caption add some description along with your shorten URL of your blog using call to action. Here I am giving you two example.

Example 1:- 

 

 

Example 2:- 

 

Call to Action is very important in online marketing as well as in Social Media marketing. Posting content on Facebook with such strategies will bring the visitor to your website but you have to be very honest about Social Ethics. In my opinion above two examples are finest one.

7. Run a Facebook Contest:-  Facebook Contest is really great idea for page admins. You can run various contest over Facebook (keeping Facebook Terms and policy in mind) and in result you will get a good engagement. Make sure about social interaction because sure user will ask something and this comes in social ethics to give proper response.

Facebook marketing

In this way user will take more and more interest in your Facebook contest and may be your fan share your post on other friend’s timeline.

8. Sponsored Post:-

Facebook marketing

Sponsored Stories is one of the best ways to invest in Facebook advertising. This is cost-effective solution that can help increase your business page visibility throughout the Facebook platform. With the help of Facebook Ad program you can boost your post and increase visibility as per your need. According to TBG Digital, Facebook’s new Sponsored Stories ad units nabbed a 46% higher click-through rate, a 20% lower cost per click and an 18% lower cost per fan than Facebook’s standard ad units.

9. Scheduled Your Post:- 

Schedule a Facebook Post

Scheduling Facebook Page’s post is very interesting feature. As of now there are lots of application like Postcron, TweetDeck, LaterBro , HooteSuite and so on. You can also use them but when your post will be publish then it will display as “Post update via Postcron” which looks bad. Just Click Here to read more about Scheduling post by Facebook.

10. Facebook Group Posting:- 

There are many Facebook group available with huge numbers of fans. When it comes to get target audience , Facebook Group posting is one of the best way to spread your content. All you have to do is, Join some niche related groups and post with unique description and a photo along with your website link. Keep in mind about rules and regulations of that Group if you will do spamming then moderator of the Group will ban you.

I have analyzed same strategy of Facebook Marketing Tips and Found that one can boost his business. There is no any rocket science behind all Successful business campaign. Most of the big company are growing day by day because of adopting Social Media Strategy in their online marketing campaign. I have shared all these things if you have more ideas then please share via comment box.

Is your Social Media Really Social ?

Social media

I have taken the idea for this blog post from a thread that was happened on SEO Forum Chat.

” Social media is about getting your customers to talk TO EACH OTHER  We are all talking to everyone else with the webmasters only occasionally starting a topic or checking in. OTOH a lot of facebook pages or tweets will get few if any shares, and no real feedback. That isn’t social even if it is a good thing marketing wise. Just because you tweet something, or put it on facebook doesn’t make it social.”

Same thing was moving in my mind, well I want to elaborate it more. All of us know that now a days Social Media is very important tool in Online Marketing that can boost your site traffic as well as increase site engagement. So now here I am going to ask few question:-

  • Are you very honest with your Social Media Fans ?
  • Are you giving proper response to you fans and followers ?
  • Do you have Social Media Manner ?
  • How much Links you are sharing on Social Networking Sites ?

Before discussing these topics, lets understand about the Power of Social Media by Matt Cutts:

You have to be very honest at time of Social Media Marketing. There are lots of Social Networking Sites and your main objective is to give right things to your friends and followers. At the same time you are expecting good traffic on your website. Sharing links on these social media sites will not work, all you have to do is to give proper response and the answers to your friends and followers.

I have seen couple of times that most of the site owner are sharing links and not responding to their social fans. Submitting too many links and irrelevant content on social sites is not beneficial for your website. These things comes in Social Spam. Social spam is unwanted spam content appearing on social networks and any website with user-generated content (comments, chat, etc.). It can be anything like hate speech, fraudulent reviews,  malicious links, fake friends, and personal information. Social Media Experts estimate that 40% of social network accounts are used for spam. These social networking can be Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pinterest, Twitter and so on. There are many kind of spammer and they are adopting different strategies like:

  • They will say Click Here, Check out, Go this website, Get Instant Access and lots of call to action terms.
  • They will use shorten URL.
  • They will take the help of Different application.
  • They will take the help from third Party or Bot
  • Posting irrelevant Photos

People are forgetting the real definition of Social Networking Sites. I would like to elaborate it. This is platform where people wants to connect each other and build social relation among people having same interest, similar activities and hobbies, educational background, Friends , co-workers and real-life connections.

Social Media is growing up day by day and experts says that this is important to take care of Social Media Manner in you social interaction  like Showing Respect, paying thanks or it can be anything. You have to polite and calm with your social fans. Let’s say an example. A Facebook user is asking the price of product on Facebook page of online shopping company and the same time there is no one who can interact with that user. In the result you will lose your customer. So interactive online is very important for your business and website.

Here I am listing few Social Media Manner that Everyone should know:

  • Don’t post irrelevant photos on Social Media Sites Like Facebook or Google plus
  • Respect your followers and Give proper response
  • Be online at the time of any active campaign
  • No hate or insulted speech
  • Don’t post your private stuff like Credit or debit card information
  • Don’t tag other people in Facebook and Google plus in bad Photos
  • Be neat while on Twitter posting, avoid link spamming
  • Congrats the person on their special events like birthday or anniversary
  • Congrats the person for his Job change on Linkedin
  • Be respectful while commenting
  • Never unfriend or un-follow a person who have added you back

These are few things that I want to talk about. If you have more ideas than please add via comment box.

Using a separate IP address for each country specific site ?

A very important and good question : “For one customer we have about a dozen individual websites for different countries and languages, with different TLDs under one IP number. Is this okay for Google or do you prefer one IP number per country TLD”?

In his latest video, Google’s head of web spam Team, Matt Cutts said that in an ideal world, it will be great if you can have separate IP addresses for.com,. co. uk,. fr and have them placed in UK, France or Germany. But in general, as long as you have different top level country code domains, Google is able to distinguish between them. So, you don’t have to put them all on one IP address. Google does take the TLD as a very strong indicator.

7 Powerful ways to get huge Traffic From USA

Website Traffic

Website Traffic

The idea of writing this blog post has come from one of my Client who asked me to get huge traffic from USA. Website traffic is very important for all the SEO and Webmaster specially for e-commerce type website. This is also very important to have huge traffic from US location.  This blog post tries to guide those bloggers who want their blogs to become popular in USA and boost targeted visitors to their Web sites. Whatever I have learnt and analyzed various tactics for USA traffic, that’s I am sharing with you:

1. Google Webmaster Tool:- Verify your website and Set preferred geographic location to the US. It’s very important for anyone doing any kind of SEO work on their website. Setting up a website in Google webmaster tool is very easy and you can link to your Google Analytics account to verify your ownership. You can also verify your website in Webmaster tool by adding Meta Tag in Head Section.  After being verified, login and go to your dashboard, look towards the right hand side and locate the settings icon, as shown in the pic below and select ‘site settings’.  On the settings page, go to ‘Geographic target’ and scroll down to select United States Location.

geo location setup

So, if you targeting your website’s content to a single country, it’s a good idea to use geo targeting to make sure that Google gives you a little boost in the local searches.

2. Register .Us Domain Name:-  Lets say if we have a domain name with .us extension then US traffic flows more smoothly then compared to other extension like .com or .net.

Here is discussion that was happened on High Ranking Forum:-

As a bit of a warning to logos because it needs to be said. When you’re using a .com domain name you’re not really targeting the US market. You’re targeting the entire world. It’s one of those double-edged swords we Murcans get/have to deal with. In that .com is a Worldwide competition. Not a US one.

The good edge of the sword being that since pretty much all US based sites use .com (as opposed to the almost never used .us) you end up with decent worldwide rankings if you get good rankings you can see from your PC from a US location. The bad edge of the sword being that if you can’t compete in a worldwide market, you’re basically screwed. Then the only thing left to you is your very, very localized market.

So if you are using .us domain extension then no doubt you will get good result from US.

3. Local Listing:- Create your Account on Google Places, Yahoo Local and Bing Local. The main advantage of having all these local listing is that when somebody will search with their keywords, it will display Local listing results then others.

Local listing

4. Build Links on USA Websites:- Create back links on American sites on relevant niche high PR sites. Remember spam links may actually lead to de-indexation by Google so avoid Black hat. You can create back links by Guest Posting, forum posting, web 2.0 submission and so on. Few of them are Globe of Blogs, Tech Crunch, Boing Boing, Digital Point, Warrior Forum, Huffington Post, Mashable, Engadget  and so on.

5. Submission to USA Classified Sites:- Your site will gain more exposure when you submit site on USA classified site. There are thousands of classified sites but make sure to submit on high PR as well as niche relevant sites.  Few of them are:-

  • Craigslist US local listings
  • OLX local ads
  • USA free ads
  • Oodle USA listings
  • http://www.al.com/placead/
  • Classifieds Ivarta
  • http://www.myadmonster.com/
  • Place ads

  • Free ads time

6. Get a Server in USA:-  You can have a USA IP while in India or anywhere in the world. You can take vpn service like strongvpn.com and Keep your Data and connection private, enjoy your favorite sites in the USA while traveling abroad.

7. Social Media Promotion:- Social Media is one of the best trick to get huge traffic from desired location. There are lots of Social Media Promotion sites but I would recommend you to to work upon Stumble Upon, Pinterest and Reddit. These sites are highly popular social networking website with a high proportion of American users. All you have to do is, to create profile along with Profile Photo,  follow few persons so that you end up by receiving targeted visitors to your website.

I hope you have learned how to drive targeted USA visitors to your website. If you have more Ideas on this topic then please drop in a comment below.

How to remove low quality backlinks ?
