This weekend Kevin Smith was “kicked off” of a Southwest Airlines flight for being “too fat.” At least that is what he Tweeted on Saturday to his 1.6 million followers. Here is a little sample of Smith’s Tweets: Dear @SouthwestAir – I know I’m fat, but was Captain Leysath really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated? Wanna tell me I’m too wide for the sky? Totally cool.
1. Treat your LinkedIn profile like a website: Make sure it is formatted, clean, and free of spelling and grammatical errors. I strongly suggest creating your LinkedIn profile first in a word document – not only so you can “catch” errors, but also so you can get a better idea of what your profile will look like on the LinkedIn website. In some sections of LinkedIn you can also pull in bullets and special characters. Alas – still no bolding or italics other than what LinkedIn itself formats.
There are many “best of” blog posts that have been written about WordPress plugins, so I wanted to cover a different angle with this post. I see WordPress and blogging like this: If your company has a social media strategy, chances are you have a corporate blog . Our friends at Hubspot released their analysis some time ago that blogging is good for SEO . And if you are blogging, chances are you are using WordPress, which is the most popular blogging platform among the biggest blogs . In this way, I see a natural relationship between blogging, WordPress, social media, and SEO. The WordPress platform in itself, however, will not allow your blog to be found through social media or appear in search engines searches.
