Love this. When you put it in this perspective, you artistically appreciate people like my incredible sister, who help people in powerful ways, and rarely get the acknowledgement and gratitude they deserve. Thanks to nurses everywhere doing all kinds of healing work.

Black hat SEO is NOT worth it...

If you’ve caught yourself feeling tempted to join the dark world of Black Hat SEO, I certainly understand your desperation. Sometimes what is deemed ‘an easy’ way to acquire more website attention can seem alluring. But please, just don’t go there.

Before I go any further however, just what is this strange practice?

Facebook is always updating.

So many amazing updates to Facebook rolling out... or in test mode or coming soon! Check out this roundup of six: 😲🎉
① Facebook to launch group chatbots at #F8 Developer Conference on April 18-19 🤖
https://techcrunch.com/2017/03/29/facebook-group-bots/ via TechCrunch
This new class of bots will work inside Messenger group chats & keep users informed about real-time news.

② All Facebook Profiles and Pages Can Now Livestream 360-Degree Video
http://www.adweek.com/digital/facebook-live-360-global-profiles-pages/ via Adweek
WOW! Anyone can now stream 360 videos to their Page or Profile, if they have the right camera. Live 360-compatible cameras currently include the Samsung Gear 360 (2017), Giroptic IO, Insta360, ALLie Camera, Z CAM S1 and Nokia Ozo. I love my ALLie Camera - must try it for streaming now! 📷

③ Facebook Testing New Option to Allow Pages to Post in Groups via Social Media Today
http://www.socialmediatoday.com/social-business/facebook-testing-new-option-allow-pages-post-groups
I first got wind of this when Michael Brandvold made this post on my wall:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10158405326415402&set=o.42328360008
And here is a great example of the Washington Post’s closed Facebook group:
http://www.niemanlab.org/2017/03/want-a-calmer-place-to-discover-and-discuss-the-washington-posts-reporting-try-this-facebook-group/

④ Facebook tests a second News Feed headed by a rocket ship icon 🚀
https://techcrunch.com/2017/03/29/facebook-tries-a-second-news-feed-headed-by-a-rocket-ship-icon/
You may already have the dedicated video news feed (tab) with the ‘play’ icon. But have you seen the new feed with a rocket ship icon? Hm. Apparently, the rocket ship icon News Feed comprises posts, articles, photos and videos from sources you haven’t followed.

⑤ New Facebook Camera & Stories
http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2017/03/more-ways-to-share-with-the-facebook-camera/
Now that you’ve had some fun inside the Messenger camera & played around with your 24-hour “Day” feature, next up starting this week on iOS and Android, you can tap on the camera icon on the top left corner of the Facebook app or swipe right from News Feed to try out the new in-app camera.

⑥ Also, more than likely because of the new Stories (on Facebook and also previously rolled out on Instagram), profile pics for Pages & Profiles may start to appear as CIRCLES. Might want to check your logo, formatting, etc. Sigh.
See: https://twitter.com/gbaratte/status/846668316764704768

So, phew, that's all for now. Your thoughts? Which features will you use for business? (Hint: #3, #2 and maybe #1. Ha. That's my $0.02)

Facebook is constantly changing. Here is a helpful reminder about reminders.

Do you have the new page Reminders? Check out this handy new feature (under 'Settings') and set your own specific times and special Holidays to get reminders to publish posts.

If you can, it's best to have content scheduled ahead of time, using Facebook's scheduler or one of the great third party tools out there to ensure your content goes out regularly. However, these additional reminders could prove helpful!

[I filled in the shaded areas in this screenshot just as a test. I'd recommend setting just a few reminders at first as your own test; or start with just the Holiday Reminders.]

Ah, the age-old question...

"What search terms do you want to rank for?
For example, I searched on 'applicant tracking software'. All results on page one of Google have a Moz Domain Authority of 40+. Your DA is 26. Until you can build DA, you're not going to rank for this keyword.
But if I search on 'Australian applicant tracking software' then some results on page one have much lower DA. (11, 19, 24). This is an option where you stand a chance of competing. There will be fewer searches (I haven't checked how many), but it's better to be on page one for a small number of searches than page 2 or 3 for a large number of searches."
