Abbreviated as SMO, Social media optimization is the usage of a number of social media outlets and communities to produce publicity to spread the alertness of a product, brand or event to generate viral publicity.
Social media optimization involves using RSS feeds, social news and bookmarking sites, well as social media websites, video and blogging sites. SMO is almost similar to SEO (search engine optimization) in that the goal is to push traffic to your Web site.
You might be attracted to consider that one way to SMO your content is to link every LinkedIn Group, Google Plus community, Facebook etc., and to share these links to your content looking for shares or comments. You would be very wrong for sure.
This behavior is not only annoying for other users but counter beneficial. Initially real users are liable to follow you or hide your posts on Google Plus or even noise your content as spam. The condition is even poorer with machine wisdom. If there is no communication with your posts and links, such as sharing, commenting or liking, then this would specify to any machine trying to learn from the data that your content is not appreciated. Thus the more you post the more your content may be appreciated as not valued or authoritative.
You can be far better concentrating in specific communities and engaging with a relevant audience and authoritative professionals.
These seven phases provide a powerful benchmark against which you can assess and plan your present SMO activities.
Your reputation our opinion starts with guaranteeing you are either an expert or you act as an expert curator. This can make you a respected and qualified source. Your reputation can be enhanced if you agreeably share your content and expertise plus content that is not your own, involve with others through discussions and commenting, and if you are friendly and valuable to people. Primarily your reputation is enhanced by just being helpful to people.
You must actively engage with your spectators. This can contain commenting, mentions, shares, likes, etc. You must target the networks with which to communicate and make it easy-going for people to interact. It may happen that people will interact with content on your site but you may find a far larger number of people prepared to interact in their existing community sites such as Google+ and LinkedIn groups. You should pool these by using say Google+ comments on your blog. Requesting users to create accounts on your site will disappoint users from commenting so use current social logins such as LinkedIn or tools.
There are many phases to authority. Search engines are attracted in ascertaining what individuals and brands are seen as respected and trusted by people on the Internet. You can also increase your authority and the worth of content through social proof. In spirit the more your content is shared through plus, re-tweets, bookmarks or likes the more it specifies the value and usefulness of your content. It may also inspire others to read your content more often.
