So you want to blog, eh kid?


New York, NY (PRUnderground) January 24th, 2012/By Alex Miranda:

Why are Google and WordPress so much in love? Why is it the perfect platform for anyone who wants to learn search engine optimization? This week Alex Miranda, the Editor-in Chief of the social media press release company, PR Underground spoke at the Hudson Valley WordPress Meetup group. The topic of discussion was WordPress SEO Basics to Advanced. Let’s take a look at why WordPress sites rank easily on the first page of Google. In the past year, Google has came out with many updates and programs that have changed SEO forever. Among them are Google Freshness, Query Deserve Freshness and The Google Authorship program. These updates are a match made in heaven for WordPress users.

Google does indeed love a blog, and WordPress is the ideal platform for blogging in the eyes of Google. Many novices are discovering fantastic SEO results using WordPress to develop their web content and keep news and information about their organization front and center when it comes to search engine ranking as determined by Google.

If your website was built more than two years ago, it probably could use an upgrade. Contact the Line Marketing Group for a free quote on a website overhaul that will integrate WordPress and catapult you to the top of the Google search engine results without draining your wallet.

Looking into the crystal ball for 2012

What does 2012 hold in store for companies looking to use social media to boost their bottom line?

A joint survey from Booz Allen and Buddy Media found that almost two thirds (57%) of businesses surveyed will increase social media spend in 2012. In addition, 38% of CEOs say they view social media as a high priority.

According to Roger Warner, CEO of Content and Motion, 2012 will be the year when “everyone finally figures out that successful Social PR is not about brands talking to people, but people talking about brands. The former is just bad, expensive marketing which doesn’t scale – and is currently driven by a lust for Likes; the latter is great marketing – near-frictionless, scalable activity measured by meaningful things like actions, reactions, shares, sentiment, distribution and reach.”
