    How 'Shareable' Is Your Social Media Content?

    by Mack Collier

    One of the great things about social media is how quickly an idea can spread via truly 'social' tools and networks. But even though it's becoming easier every day to share social media content, you still need to create content that people WANT to share.

    In response to... Putting SEO Frosting on a Website Dung Pile

    Great post and very timely.

    I have just been pulling my hair out working on just a site. Loads of images blocked in together, back button navigation and dreaded JS all over the place.

    What I have found though, which may be helpful for others, is this has enabled me to offer a low cost 'starter' package, by using keywords, metatags etc on their site, adding analytics, so they can feel more 'at one' with their site and understand the way it works, limitations and potential. We also give them a link building strategy for them to work on.

    After that can sit on their site for a while and see how visitors interact before going for a rebuild.

    Our little silver lining.
