Blog Syndication(image credit to jscreationzs)

Are you in a social tribe and getting your blog posts syndicated? If not, you’re probably missing out! (and right now, we are the latter)

From automated systems to close nit exclusive tribes, getting your blog posts and content syndicated through a social tribe seems to be the way to go. But do your blog comments end up lacking authenticity in the process?

On episode #3 of thatMLMbeat.TV I questioned whether Tribe Syndication is a killer of great content with too much automation going on.

Although we’ve always been a supporter of multiple tribes, I personally haven’t participated actively in any on a continues basis.

Being on a mission to return back to my blogging roots and in need of a great tribe, I asked a few of the top tribe leaders on Facebook what they feel the essential elements are that makes a Tribe Rock.

Here’s the response I got:

Kary RogneyBe giving of your time and energy. Listen to what people need and want. And make daily and consistent actions a priority…. Tribes are about people. If you put others first and grow your network, when you look back after a year you’ll be blown away by the success you’ll possess. 🙂

Gavin MountfordHave a direction and vision for the Tribe, have strong, powerful values for the tribe, work closely with people and remember that those people are real people with real problems, worries, challenges and aspirations.

Do NOT treat people as just a number. As Kary said, put other people first and not yourself. You are doing it for the people.

Ken PickardSurround yourself with like minded people. People who share your vision and values and goals. A good tribe is made of of leaders who understand that everyone has something to offer and its members work well on their own but even better in a group. It’s the epitome of a mastermind group.

Heather StephensLeadership that is focused on empowering others to stretch their comfort zones. Giving a sense of ownership and exclusivity to the members of the community. Praising the action takers who are making progress, implementing what they’re learning and making the community a better place.

Create an environment that encourages everyone to as questions or offer constructive feedback on how each of us can improve our marketing. Be flexible in adjusting the tribe rules, procedures, etc. as the group grows and needs arise. Don’t try to please everyone. Each community is going to have it’s own flavor and that is a good thing!

Great feedback! To sum it up and keep it simple, here’s the top 10 tribe essentials for blog syndication:

  • Listen
  • Consistency
  • Action
  • Values
  • Vision
  • Community
  • Leadership
  • Mastermind
  • Empowering
  • Diversify

Are there any essential elements to a tribe that you feel we should add? What value do you get the most out of your tribe and more importantly, what value do you contribute?

Front Page On Google In Less Than 18 Hours – Part 1


Front page on Google in less than 18 hours? Yesterday I completed a post about Social Tribes and free blog syndication.

The purpose of this post was to get the word out on 3 Facebook Pages independently managed by Kary Rogney, Ken Pickard and Michael Feil that focus on free blog syndication.

What this post also accomplished was to get placed on the second page on Google for one keyword and on the front page on Google for the other. This all happened in less than 18 hours!

Ironically, all I did was complete the post and hit submit. That’s it! The only promotion I did for this blog post was to update my status on Facebook and Twitter.

How did I do it? You will be shocked at how simple it is to be positioned within the first 2 pages on Google with a single blog post.

WordPress blogs are extremely powerful and all you need to do is position your keywords in the right places and tweak a few minor things.

Don’t worry, I am going to share the complete step by step process that I followed to do this in a later video.

But first, I am putting myself up for a challenge. At the time of writing this, Social Tribes – 3 Facebook Pages For Free Blog Syndication is positioned at no 17 on page 2 for the keyword Social Tribes. The other keyword I focused on was free blog syndication and it’s positioned at no 7 on Google’s page 1.

I have to admit, I was a little greedy focusing on 2 longtail keywords, but nevertheless, it worked.

So here’s the challenge:

In the next coming days I am going to focus on improving these rankings. The goal is to get Social Tribes on page 1 and free blog syndication to climb at least 2 positions. Or, let’s say at least 3. (I might regret typing that!)

Over the past few weeks I have been testing a few excellent software applications for content syndication, so this will be the ultimate test.

Now, if Front Page On Google In Less Than 18 HoursPart 2 doesn’t arrive in the next week, then you know that I failed miserably!

If I succeed on the other hand, I will show you exactly how I did it and the tools that were used to make this possible. Deal? Great! How is that for reality SEO? 🙂

REVISED:

Here is part 2 of Front Page On Google in Less than 18 Hours.
