Fantastic post by Social Media Examiner about 5 tips using Google+. It goes into Google Authorship, how to write your profile for keywords, posts, events, and a shared circle directory.

I highly recommend taking a look at the article below and seeing how it can benefit you.

“Google+ also plays a major role in search engine optimization (SEO) by making it easier for marketers to show up in search results—yet another reason to include Google+ in your social media strategy.”

YouTube Gets A Little Makeover

I was using YouTube for a little bit and saw that YouTube had changed a little bit. It must have just been within the last day or two. I have been pushing Google+ and YouTube more and more as well as using both myself a lot more. It seems as both keep getting better and better as far as features and usability.

 

 

 

A couple of the changes are:

  • The Subscribe button is a little different
  • The like button
  • And the About/Share/Add to/stats/report have an overall different look.
  • There are a lot more share options. You can now share to Tumblr, Blogger, Myspace, hi5, linkedin, and stumbleupon.

It’s also nice that you can see the stats of each video, the engagement, audience, and key discovery events right on each video very easily. Check it out and if you have anything to add just add it in the comments for everyone else!

Facebook Page Not Showing Up Unless Logged In

Hello everyone! It looks like I’m only going to be able to get one blog post up a week for a little. Last week I had a client/buddy that was having the issue of the Facebook pages not showing up if you were not logged in to view them.

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s what it is supposed to look like:

facebook page not showing up

 

Instead it was just pulling up the Log In screen to log into Facebook and not recognizing it. However if you were logged into Facebook then typed the URL in it would show up. I quickly saw in the settings under Manage Permissions that the country restriction was not default and they had typed in “United States” and had that there. Even though that SHOULD work it didn’t. The specific Facebook page this occurred on was less than 15 miles away from me.

If you have set up a bunch of pages for people and have used that country restrictions you should log out of Facebook and double check that they show up. It should stay default like the picture here:

That’s it for this week. If you have any Social Media Questions you would like the answer to get in touch with me through the contact page and I would be more than happy to help.
