Guest Blogging Networks, List.ly, Link Disavow Tool, Speedlink 43:2012

speedlink weekly roundup

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. Following the Google dance (Panda, Penguin, EMD, PageLayout, etc), online marketers have been focusing their strategies onto guest blogging and blogger outreach. While these strategies work well, when done properly, it could still be time consuming for many of us to find blogs related to our topic. With that said, SEJ posted an article this week that narrows the process of searching bloggers and/or networks designed to connect businesses and bloggers. Here are 9 networks to make it easier to find blogs looking for content, and in case you missed it, this list of sites are great for guest blogging.

With regards to Google’s new link disavow tool, there has been some doubts in the industry whether or not we should be using it. Danny Sullivan from SEL, got some answers, directly from the head of Google’s web spam team, Matt Cutts. Worth reading, if case you are thinking of using the tool.

On a different front, I just started to play around with List.ly. List.ly, as they say, is a social curation tool for your site. They highlight benefits such as, increased engagement, improved SEO, traffic generation, and many more. For now, I still am not quite sure how to make of it, but the concept looks similar to that of Scoop.it. Essentially you create a “list” and start curating content into it by using their interface or a handy bookmarklet. Good thing is that it does not seem to have a limit of the number of lists you can create and it is free! Anyway, check it out if you are interested, and if you have been using it already, do let us know what you think of it. Is it, just another …?

Listly Social Curation

As usual, in no particular order:

Content Marketing/Small Business Bites

Found via just-ask-kim.com. Is Selling Evil, by ilovemarketing.com

SEO/Inbound Marketing

Social Web/Other Roundups and Cool Stuff

Should I structure my site using subdomains or subdirectories?

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Informative Resource To know about new things. Low quality Refers, using content of others and posting it on your website without linking to the original site link and poor quality back links. Recovering from EMD is Time taking process

In regards to List.ly, I have been having some great success with it. I am a Featured Contributor with Yahoo! Voices and I use the “press this” tool on my business WP blog. I have attached my List.ly account to my blog and as I “curate” my Yahoo! pieces to my blog I am able to add a link to my newest article within my blog. My Yahoo! list has received more than 1,000 hits in less than a week, in turn, my Yahoo! list has increased traffic to my business blog by several hundred hits per day and my conversion rate is fairly decent.

I also create list for my client’s products and am able to link into previously established lists that fall in the same vein as my client. For instance, I have a client WeMontage.com which provides an interior design application. I found several relevant interior design lists and suggested my client’s press release for addition to “top 100 interior design blogs” and “interior designers” with great success. Some of the top interior designers are now tweeting about my client’s product and I have received positive response from them to review the product for their blogs/sites.

So far, my client has received features on the Black Enterprise site and several other A-list sites which I believe I would not have been able to reach without List.ly.

This is just my experience but I have nothing but good to say about the application at this time.

Hi Ditesco,

Thanks for yet another news worthy post – especially the video of Matt Cutts. I found myself having to use the Google Disavow Tool, And looking forward to seeing the results.

I just read your interview with Mat Cutts. I must say that people have a tendency to exaggerate about everything especially about the disavow tool.
The disavow tool is here to help, and not to serve the purpose of negative SEO.
Also thanks for the guest blog list. I’ve been trying to do guest blogging and it takes tons of time to get someone to publish your guest post. I’m going to
try to post on these sites.Thanks!
