  5. 5. Off-Medium SEO: SM Hashtags - Content Repurposing & QUORA A. Hashtag (or keyword) Strategy: Never stop discovering link acquiring or link partnering opportunities via investigating the most popular social media networks through their search engine boxes: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus, Instagram, Linkedin etc. • Type relevant hashtags (or keywords) to what you have to offer • Check their popularity sorting by “Most Recent” to see the frequency in which people share posts including this hashtag • Find relevant potential link opportunities • “Study” your potential link partner’s resources well • Make the best possible direct / friendly approach to start building relationships (Online PR) that can get you nice, relevant and high authority backlinks in the near future that will help increase your page’s authority as well, through transferring part of the SEO power (link juice) the page that gives you the link “leaks” to yours. • When you add value first to the person you are approaching (to whom you are a stranger), who has higher authority than you in your industry, you have increased chances to gain something valuable back instead of when you don’t take the time to study your potential link partner and sound spam-y. • Approach influencers in your niche by personalizing your message according to the value that you have to add to their work. Nobody cares what a stranger wants. All people care to know “What’s in it for Them”. B. Content Repurposing & Syndication Strategy: Always Re-purpose your newly created content (i.e your latest blog post) into other forms of content like a PDF, a PPT, a Video, an Infographic, a Podcast and syndicate those different content types on your Brand’s Social Media accounts and open a free brand account on all free web platforms where you can specifically upload PDFs, PPTs, Podcasts, Videos, Audios, Infographics etc C. Tip for Brand Authority Building: if your content has a problem solving character, go to Quora and find relevant questions that your content addresses well, submit a well-thought answer and include a link back to your content for users to learn more.
  6. 6. About “Mediums” where SEO Strategies can be applied to SEO strategies can be applied to a majority of web property types on top of a brand’s company website. What are the different medium types that a Brand can take advantage of SEO-wise to increase their reach and attract new audiences that have diversified online content consumption habits?  Videos  Images  Audios  PDFs  PPTs  Podcasts  Facebook Page  Linkedin Page  Twitter Page  Pinterest Page  Google Plus Profile Page  Google My Business Page  Google My Maps Page  YouTube Channel  Instagram Page  Meetup.com Page  Quora.com Page

At the same time, educate yourself around SEO and make sure that you build your brand (as shared above) in a Search Engine Friendly way. WHY NOT HIT 2 birds with one stone? If you create a HUGE Authority Brand, the least of high quality SEO efforts will bring you massive improvements. BUT… If you ignore building your Brand’s authority and instead, do massive low quality seo efforts, you will never achieve important rankings. ALWAYS REMEMBER: Google Loves and Rewards Real Brands that interact with their users by constantly offering great online experiences, educating and solving their problems (even before they become paying clients / customers).
