  1. I am working on these, one at a time, and your tips are very helpful. Social medial changes so often it’s difficult to keep up. But then so does Google! Here’s my question for the day: Since Google has changed its search (and frankly you can’t even find an address these days) which search engine do you think will become the Search of Choice in the near future? Do you think it will be Yelp, or Bing, or Yahoo or another? Thanks!!

    • Thanks for commenting Tina! I personally think Google will turn things around and remain the search engine of choice. Which do you think might overtake Google in the near future? Thanks for commenting!

  2. I should really buckle down with this post. There’s so much to learn about social media, and it’s changing everyday. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed trying to fit in posts to all the major platforms I use, but I’ve honestly never sat back to check where the real traffic referrals were coming from. For years I’ve wanted to cancel my site’s FB but never have. Currently I’ve got an okay amount of interaction going on there, but perhaps I need to try cultivating audience interaction somewhere else that gets more organic views…

    • Jelli I can totally relate. Sometimes it is a bit overwhelming to get posts on all social media accounts. Do you happen to use a scheduler program? Are you on Blogger or WordPress? I installed one this week at the suggestion of another blogger and so far really like it. This might help you?

      Maybe you should re-evaluate your SM accounts. However, with nearly 1.5 billion users I think Facebook is probably still one of the best SM sites available. Thanks for commenting and reading!

    • Thanks for the encouragement Pamela glad to help! Maybe you could look into Twitter, Google+, or Instagram to see if you could generate more traffic? Or perhaps the focus on FB and Pinterest is a good idea. Thanks for commenting!

  3. Awesome way to keep track of your audience and your blog’s stats. It sounds a bit tedious but really, it makes sense and it’s a lot easier to do once you start. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Mary I think sometimes it depends on a variety of factors including time of month, time of year, content, timeliness, and which social media we use. Have you joined some Facebook groups or forums in your niche? Connecting with other bloggers and people in your niche is key. Shoot me an email if you’d like to talk further.

  4. This was a great post! I am a new blogger and have alot to learn. I haven’t ventured into Google Analytics yet. My biggest following is on Instagram. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I am going to check out Buffer now that you mention it! Thanks for that tip!

    I did finally start using coschedule.com which I am loving as an editorial calendar! It helps me schedule out social media through WordPress and attaches images and short links while I sleep! And I need all the help I can get 🙂
