Google Plus makes it easy

Google Plus makes it easy to update your blog when you post. You need a plugin to do this but it is very simple once you have the plugin activated and working. Its probably similar to FB, which I have not played around with very much.

Tweet My Blog Plugin For Your Blog

Hey all, I just added the Tweet My Blog plugin to my blog. You can see it in action in the far right sidebar via the sidebar widget. The plugin does three things for your blog to get you more traffic and to help boost your income.

One – everytime I make a blog post to my blog the plugin automatically posts a tweet to my Twitter account. The tweet will contain a link back to the post. Backlinks for traffic right there.

Two – the plugin allows you to add a sidebar widget that displays your tweets on your blog. The tweets are linked back to your personal Twitter page which will add content to your blog and help you build your Twitter following. More traffic with a larger following.

Three – it goes without saying that once you hook up with Tweet My blog plugin you will have a potential for affiliate sales that will be presented when an interested party downloads the FREE plugin. The potential for sales will be in the form of high converting offers when you download.

In conclusion, Twitter is fast becoming a great tool for getting traffic to your blog. I cant think of anyone in the internet marketing circle that hasn’t mentioned Twitter or is themselves not using it. All you have to do is sign up and build your following and your traffic will grow. Using this plugin is an easy way to do that.

Good luck.

Social Media: Participatory online media where news, photos, videos, and podcasts are made public via social media websites through submission. Normally accompanied with a voting process to make media items become “popular”.[citation needed]

Social Media Expanded Definition: Social Media is the democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into content publishers. It is the shift from a broadcast mechanism to a many-to-many model, rooted in conversations between authors, people, and peers.

Social media uses the wisdom of crowds to connect information in a collaborative manner. Social media can take many different forms, including Internet forums, message boards, weblogs, wikis, podcasts, pictures and video. Technologies such as blogs, picture-sharing, vlogs, wall-postings, email, instant messaging, music-sharing, group creation and voice over IP, to name a few. Examples of social media applications are Google (reference, social networking), Wikipedia (reference), MySpace (social networking), Facebook(social networking), Last.fm (personal music), YouTube (social networking and video sharing), Second Life (virtual reality), and Flickr (photo sharing).
