Social Integration

Reblogger Michelle Minch

In case you haven't seen/noticed this yet, AR has included "social integration" for all our blog posts. Yay!

This makes it easier for your readers to share/like/tweet all your blog posts (you can too!) thereby adding to your exposure.

Thanks, AR!

Our team has been hard at work developing a painless way to syndicate your content and stay connected.  May I introduce to you, Social Integration.  Sounds like a hard core rock n' roll band to me but it's something much more.

I hope all of you use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  Google + is a the new kid on the block but many of you are already using it so we've included it in our new development.  Liking and sharing posts on social networks is critical to your SEO.  Making your readers aware of not just your own but other worthy posts is a great idea too.  Please be aware of your own competitive dynamics and do so accordingly.  Please DO NOT like or share Members Only Posts.  Consumers cannot open the links and they are not displaying correctly on the social networks. 

Notice the Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn and Twitter buttons at the top of your posts, to the right of the Re-Blog Button:

These buttons will allow you to syndicate your blog content to any or all of the above listed social media outlets by clicking on them.  You can push your SEO power that much further by spreading your information to these major social networks outlets.

We've been experimenting and testing for weeks now to clear the problems we encounter so you don't have to.  But, just as with any new roll out, we ask you to let us know your experiences good or bad.

Want to feed your most recent post directly to Facebook?  Click "Mr. Thumbs Up" and you'll see:

*Facebook is currently grabbing any image of it's choice.  The majority of the time your profile picture will be chosen but not 100%.  If you do not like the way Facebook is displaying your link, please go direct to Facebook and upload your link manually.

Do your LinkedIn connections need to see your post?  You bet they do!  Click "in Share" icon and you'll see a window pop up:

Once you're ready to post to LinkedIn, click Share and you'll get a confirmation:

We are also testing the Facebook Recommendations widget on the homepage of AR; just another way to get on the front page:

Increase your traffic by expanding the reach of your blog.  Tweet your little hearts out, Google + til you can't stand it anymore!  We know how hard you work on your posts and we've made an easier time-saving way to feed your content to the world.  So do it!

Michelle, I noticed it too and it's great.  However, there seem to be a few glitches.  For example, the Twitter link says it will shorten, but it didn't.  :(  Also the Facebook posts do not seem to post through.  I hope they keep working on it to get it right....
