How To Create a Webzine by Compiling Your Twitter and Facebook Worlds
This is an excellent way. This site is really intuitive, very easy. You can pick a few keywords or tags and publish the content each day (or twice a day, or weekly). Readers can view the information is a relatively well formatted zine style. Click on mine to check it out. If you subscribe, you’ll follow updates from me plus, all of the people I follow. Paper.li creates it for you automatically.
I put this together in less than 10 minutes and I’m sure you can do it too. I hadn’t seen the site before. My focus for this site was an experiment for “new energy”, and related aspects: like “#windpower”. If you view it, you’ll notice, #windpower is now a menu item. Click through to read content tagged wind power. Easy to read, huh? This is a nice way to further open your social imprint.
This is an easy add on for any newspaper site, but it also serves the interests of a citizen journalist who simply want to tie Twitter and Facebook together in a nice tidy webzine. Webzines were popular in the
80′s 90′s. Well, the 80′s 90′s are back.
*I am corrected by a loyal Twitter friend, webzines were really more in the 1990's.... and I agree. In 1994, I took a Basic programming class in high school, but the course was limited to programming principles. In retrospect this was probably a big reason I ended up in a profession marketing technology. A couple of years later I was learning Pascal from a local community college (making up for high school science credits). As proof of the web's embryonic state, the course was available via television but I thought that was pretty cool, and much preferred to sitting next to the distractions of being in class.
Last night on the news, I saw a piece on computer-based distance learning programs. They were highlighting a family home schooling their 3 children. I have also seen these programs, especially for math, being used in public and private schools. Teachers have to be excited about this, because it places some of the responsibility back on the student and parent where it should be. Parents must be excited because they have a window into what and how the student is really learning.]
The SEO honeymoon is over.
Eric Schmidt himself admits other sites are doing admirable things to be found online.
Are you of the opinion that article farming is the next best way of building links and gearing traffic to your web pages? It WAS a valid (though tedious) trend of augmenting SEO campaigns until Google updated its search algorithm to limit the impact of article marketing!
Due to article farming, relevant results had almost become a needle in a haystack. Users had to sift through multiple result pages, only to find regurgitated junk. Google needed to clean its SEO landscape if it had hopes of surviving the competition unleashed by Yahoo! and Bing. This search engine giant responded with an update that changes all article marketing rules.
Quality Metrics Have Been Upped
The SEO campaigns that survived, did it solely on spins and extensive submission to hundreds of article directories. The change will give top priority to brands. Now the thrust will be on high-quality content. Therefore, webmasters should concentrate more on:
So, content will continue its reign as the king. However, for a bigger impact, webmasters should aim at creating an authoritative presence.
