Social media is bigger than ever, it can help your blog grow and it makes it easier to share new information that doesn’t require a new post. I’ve put together a list of the popular social media sites today.
It’s important to be a part of social media and being mentioned in social media could potentially help search engines rank your blog or website in the future. If you want the absolute best coverage, you should sign up to most of these social media networks, as your company. I’ve signed up as ‘Rushtips’ or ‘Rushtipscom’ with most of these and the traffic, as well as the feedback that I’ve received makes it absolutely worth it. If you only want views, I’d suggest Reddit and StumbleUpon. If you want readers and contributes you’d want Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and G+.
What is the best way to share your posts to multiple social media sites? What I do is I click on my own share buttons, that way I don’t have to copy&paste on the actual social media site. There are a bunch of scripts that can automatically post your new content, however I think you should add something extra to make it less automatic, i.e 2 hashtags on twitter.
