ditesco speedlink roundup 2014

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great and productive week! We´ve all learned that having a social media presence is a must, if we want to extend our outreach and increase our exposure, specially if one of our goals is not to really solely on one source of traffic. Facebook is one if those sites that we can´t live without, or so marketers and other influential people say. Well, to counter that a bit, Copyblogger (I´m guessing you know who these people are right?), have decided to nothing more than delete their Facebook account last week.


Copyblogger has found more value actively engaging with its community through Twitter and Google+, and decided to focus it´s energy in those social channels instead. Why? See their entire post here and read what led them to leave Facebook for completely. There you go! How about you, are you successfully using Facebook? In what cases would that be?

Building a blog is really not that complicated anymore. You will see tons of tutorials and how to´s out there running you through the process of creating one.

Competition is fierce and unless you get the right ingredients right, it may be a very frustrating journey. Below are tips on how to build a better blog, according to 17 experts in the field.

And as usual, in no particular order:

Interesting question. Thx for posting Rand’s whiteboard friday. I had missed that one. I think this approach could work when you have a strong established blog with high domain authority, esp if other people consistently mention their blog. It can also work when you have a high subscriber base.
