Facebook EdgeRank Update – a Business Friendly change for once

Facebook EdgeRank.

You might have heard of it.

facebook edge rank update

It’s that secret formula Facebook uses to get your posts either seen or completely buried in the news feed.

No one really knows how it works – much like Googles Search algorithm – and they love to keep us guessing.

Just recently Facebook announced a special update to its ranking system to help get your business Page’s posts seen more often by more of your fans.

 

Lets face it – if you had 8500 fans most posts were only being seen by around 200 people – not a fantastic ratio.

 

Facebook’s First EdgeRank Update is beginning to roll out to users now so keep a close eye on your post views.

Facebook has introduced what they call “Story Bumping” – it’s a way to highlight older posts that might have been buried in your fans’ news feeds.

If a post you made early in the day is still getting likes and comments later the same day, Facebook will “bump” your Page’s post back to the top of your followers’ feeds.

This happens now already with posts on your Personal Profile News Feed. So it’s good news for business.

Does it mean all posts will be seen?

No – you will need to make sure you get your fans engaged – because the posts will need comments and likes to be bumped up.

What do Facebook say about it – what’s the official word?

Early data shows this improves the experience of News Feed:

In a recent test with a small number of users, this change resulted in a 5% increase in the number of likes, comments and shares on the organic stories people saw from friends and an 8% increase in likes, comments and shares on the organic stories they saw from Pages

Previously, people read 57% of the stories in their News Feeds, on average. They did not scroll far enough to see the other 43%. When the unread stories were resurfaced, the fraction of stories read increased to 70%.

The data suggests that this update does a better job of showing people the stories they want to see, even if they missed them the first time. For Page owners, this means their most popular organic Page posts have a higher chance of being shown to more people, even if they’re more than a few hours old. Advertisers should note, however, that this change does not impact how paid content appears in News Feeds.

The goal with algorithm updates is to keep improving News Feed. We’ll continue to keep you posted on the updates we make in response to people’s feedback. Stay tuned for more.

 

Why the update to EdgeRank?

I’d like to say businesses were getting tired of having to pay to promote a post to get it seen at all and Facebook listened? Hmmmmm. I shall reserve judgement on that.

 

How to Host a Shake Party / Grand Opening

How to Host your Business Launch or Grand Opening – otherwise known as a Shake Party

A business launch / grand opening is a social get together that you invite your warm local prospects to in order to let them know about your products and your new business. It is the most effective way for you to kick starts your business. Many distributors get as many as 5 – 8 new customers and referrals as a result of doing effective business launch / grand openings.

You need to set a date for your business launch/grand opening (within a fortnight) with your mentor.

You can hold your business launch/grand opening in your home or in a local wellness centre or hall.

  • Explain a few of the products (e.g. Formula 1, Instant Herbal Beverage, Protein Powder etc.), not too many.

 

Serve the shakes- While enjoying the shakes, just let people talk amongst themselves & answer any questions.

Explain you are making your order tomorrow so if anyone wants to be popped on that order they should let you know.

Notes: It is important for you to realise that this “gathering” is not designed to “sell” product. It is designed to introduce your new Distributors friends to a new career & to seek their support whether they themselves get involved or not.

 

Ranking on Google – Why pay for traffic?

Ranking on Google can be expensive and time consuming – but it doesn’t have to be.

 

I used to pay a SEO guy to write (bad) articles for my website to establish back-links. He would send me reports of his “work” each month and the results in the major search engines. He briefly got my site to #4 and then my competitors upped the ante and I was forever more on page 4 and beyond. The dreaded black hole of page 2 and higher on Google Search Results, that no one looks at.

I paid him about $200 a month!

Once I got my EN Viral Blogging system I quickly cancelled his services because I could quickly see how I could do it myself for less time and less money.

Ranking on Google – the Easy Way – and the Cheaper way.

I was quite surprised that one of my very first blog posts – which took me about 20 minutes to write – about Herbalife GMO Ingredients quickly started getting me free traffic. The viral blogging system has a great tool that scores your SEO for you – as you write it. So I aimed for getting 100% – I got to 85% but was pretty pretty happy with that. I didn’t do anything special – apart from follow the viral blogging system SEO guide.

I’ll show you below my results – Ranking on Google at#1 just 20 hours after posting.

Excuse my scribbles.

But that’s #1 out of 1.5 million results.

Ranking on Google

 

 

so I was pretty impressed with that… and now I use this system to promote all my other businesses – and I sell the EN Products too because they are real value for money – the $15K Formula course is a steal at $1000.

I have paid $997 for similar courses and they have only touched on one or two methods of online marketing – in this Training you get to be trained by Industry leaders – in their field of expertise – everything from SEO, Content, Syndication, Solo Ads, Funnels, Sales Videos, Conversions, Email Language, even offline marketing too.

Now it’s almost a game for me – what can I blog about and get ranking on Google fast?

Who can I out rank?

Hey if you haven’t signed up with EN yet – now is the time – and I’d love for you to be part of my team.

We have some exciting releases coming in less than 60 days so a big opportunity to get yourself ready for that, with some hard core training with me and our Team, so you can hit the ground running as soon as the new releases are announced – because everyone will want in then!

Make hay while the sun shines…

….as Jim Rohn says;

Springtime is the time for sowing seeds… summer is the time to Harvest.

How to find your Other Facebook Inbox

Ever tried in vain to find your Other Facebook Inbox?

I found 60 messages in mine the other day.

50% were romance proposals lol.

There must be some desperadoes around – trolling Facebook for partners.

I helped someone last night find theirs – so I’ll do a quick post.

Step 1 – How to find your Other Facebook Inbox

Click your messages icon….

Then click one of the messages so that the messages page comes up on your screen instead of your newsfeed.

Step 2 – How to find your Other Facebook Inbox

You’ll then have your messages on the whole page of your facebook (and no Newsfeed).

Other facebook Inbox

Look at the top left hand corner to see your Inbox and your Other Inbox

In this example below there are 25 unread messages in the Other Inbox.

Be warned – alot maybe unsolicited proposals of romance or friendship.

I even had one offering to invest money with me because he had a surplus he needed to get out of his country.

Yeah right!

Go take a look and let me know how many romance offers you had.

Blog Syndication – How to create an E-book from your Blog Post

Blog Syndication – How to create an E-book from your Blog Post

So you have a blog.

You’d quite like people to see it – since you’ve spent so much time writing every post.

But no one seems to find it.

Socialise your blog and get some good back links by publishing your blog post as an article or Ebook on Zinepal.

Every time you do a blog post do the following to help “socialise” your blog (it’ll make some new friends).

1. Tweet it

2. Share on Facebook

3. Google+ it

Then Zinepal it into an EBook or E-Article I like to call it.

At the end of this process you’ll have a professional looking PDF of your blog post as well as a Kindle Version and an E-Book.

Zinepal creates eBooks in the PDF, ePub, Kindle and Mobipocket formats.

  1. Set up a free account at Zinepal – choose a username you’ll be happy showing on your publications.

Click on the Create Yours page and enter the address of a web page, blog or feed that you want to include in your eBook or article.

Click on Select Stories – if you have entered your blog domain and not a blog post – all your blog posts will be listed.

How to use Zinepal to make an ebook of your blog

 

 

Choose which story/stories you’d like to include in your E-Book or E-Article by checking or unchecking each post.

Select Stories

 

 

Then when you are done, click the “Preview Your eBook” button at the top of the page.

Zinepal then creates a preview of your eBook.

When you are done, click the "Preview Your eBook" button at the top of the page. Zinepal then creates a preview of your eBook.

 

Edit the keywords, layout, fonts and title by clicking on the Customize Ebook button

 Customize Ebook button

 

When you are happy (keep checking the preview) then click on Finalize Ebook.

I normally add my logo, an advertising banner and an introduction.

I check the box to say I’d like a copy emailed to me (saved me saving it) and I tick the box to Publish it to Scribd as well.

There you go – easy as that – your E-Article is now published on another platform for more people to see – with links to your blog right in the article.

The articles look professional and it’s easy to think someone would have taken quite some time to achieve this result.

How to get massive traffic to your site

how to get massive traffic to your site

I’m talking big traffic. And cheap.

This is untargeted traffic and not the kind of traffic you go after like for example with solo-ads.

But it’s traffic and your click through rate may be lower on this but they’ll only click if they’re curious right!

You can’t choose gender, or interests, but you can choose country.

Have you used Adfly to shorten links before?

Have you noticed that after you paste your long link – before it’s shortened you see an ad.

This could be your ad!

You can place your website (or a webpage with your ad copy) on the screen just before the shortened link appears and the viewer can choose to skip the ad (and you don’t pay) or they can view the ad. You can get 1000’s of views for as little as $3.

Click here to get started with Adfly.
