Link Building Strategy – Get Real

I don’t like the concept of Link Credits,  Link Clubs or “Click a bunch of random links and a slew of random websites will link to yours”.  You can be certain the Search Engines don’t either.  Get real, folks.

I’m always surprised that the search engines haven’t YET penalized everyone swapping links mindlessly. In 2007 Google clamped down on Link Farms.  But of course, now in 2011 ”link farms” have been replaced with variations of the same.  They’re a bit slicker now.  And harder to detect. But still gimmicks whose sole intent is to boost link popularity for better rank in search engine results.  My advice is to avoid any bad practice or you will get burned.


Social Media Marketing Group – Review

I’ve just joined a Facebook Group called “You Can Do” Social Media Marketing.  This group is new but already extremely active!  Started by Kim Garst of Social Media Branding.com, it looks like it will give new meaning to the concept of “community”. 

Already there have been questions about Linked in, Twitter, Facebook, Blogging, the power of WordPress,  etc.  Even discussions on new website projects members are working on, critiques, resources and encouragement.  It’s highly interactive and insightful!

Quickly, it has shown how hungry marketers and bloggers are for information on best practices in social media marketing.

Self-Hosted Crossover on WordPress Blog

Need The Easiest Way To Self-Host WordPress Blog?

I changed my Twitter Profile this morning to: Texas gal into Media Marketing Strategy & Coaching, Web Design SEO, Real Estate, Golf, Pottery & Heart Disease. Internet Marketer and wannabe Blogger.

Let’s talk about the wannabe Blogger description. When Yarby’s Corner began, I shared that I had started a Blog years ago and then took a 5 year hiatus. This time I am determined to stick with it and find my blogging voice. So far, I stand by that. But because I was testing the waters initially, I used a wordpress.com address instead of my primary business website, The Media Mix. After several months of blogging and much reading, it appears there are a “few” plug-ins I need that are not available in this platform.

Best Method to Switch to Self Hosted WordPress Blog?

Confused ... Which way to go?

Don’t get me wrong, I love WordPress.com. But as a Business Blog I need to make a change. I help clients and readers with all forms of media : from traditional off-line media to new media and all aspects of on-line marketing. So my goal is to build a community that is interactive, engaging and fluid. I don’t want to talk “at” you but “with” you. Many of the folks reading my blog care A LOT about incoming-links, solid anchor text and showing their latest Blog Post when they Comment. I too appreciate those features on other Internet Marketing and Social Media Blogs.

It seems some of the Plug-Ins necessary to achieve my goal include:

Social Media Basics: Marketing Synergy

Social Media Basics for Small Business:
Create Marketing Synergy

After 30 years in Advertising, Marketing and Media Buying, one of my favorite marketing terms has always been synergy: the working together of two things to produce an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects. It doesn’t get much better than this. The internet super-charges Marketing Synergy for a small business like no other medium.


Buying Local Media Air-Time Yourself?


The Media Mix
had a call this morning from a gentleman name DJ. He’s located in a small town in Alabama. He was on our website www.themediamix.com and wanted to talk with me. He said he might want to buy air time on NBC and could I tell him 5 – 10 steps about how to go about buying TV media himself.

I told him that for local media, he could call a station or cable network directly and ask for the Sales Department. They would assign an Account Executive who would be glad to come out and get him set up with media time.
