Re: Content Discovery Smackdown: Hootsuite vs Buffer vs Klout - http://socialthreesixty.com/content...
"I have to admit I don't use any of these for content discovery. I belong to three networks where I find most of the content I read and share: Triberr, Social Buzz Club and Viral Content Buzz. Each one of these sites is built around a community of bloggers who reciprocate by sharing each other's content. I find that the difference between my strategy versus using platform discovery tools like Klout and Buffer is that my content is being shared as well. I haven't looked at HootSuite yet. I do agree that Buzzsumo is a fantastic tool and I'm really looking forward to your full review on it. Thanks Chad!" - Ileane Smith

Re: 4 Mistakes That May Result In Your Website Being Held Hostage: Part 2 - http://www.websearchsocial.com/4-mista...
"Thanks for the post Ralph. The sad part is, sounds like your potential customers are stuck with the developers they hired. Btw - I wouldn't assume that they went "cheap", they might be paying big bucks to get ripped off like this. It's pretty sad to know this type of stuff happens all the time. Hopefully you and Carol Lynn can come to the rescue somehow." - Ileane Smith

"Hi Kevan, Nice list! I used to shy away from Jet Pack but it seems to move a lot faster than it did before. I use it so I can access the WP stats from my dashboard. I started using Digg Digg when Buffer took over and my video tutorial is one of the more popular ones on my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?... Thanks for the list." - Ileane Smith

Re: 30 Best Social Media Monitoring Tools For Business - http://stuartjdavidson.com/social-...
"That's a tough question because it depends on what I'm monitoring. If I want to monitor Twitter activity I would go with HootSuite. For Pinterest it would be TailWindApp. For blog mentions (I have 3 blogs) I use Mention but I haven't found one tool that catches all of them. For YouTube I use VidIq, OneLoad and Google+ lol I sure wish there was one tool that did it all but a tool like that would most likely be out of my price range. And - oh I almost forgot to mention - monitoring your email subscribers, like AWeber and FeedBurner need to be monitored as well." - Ileane Smith

"Hi Stuart, Great list! I'd like to suggest using TailWindApp for monitoring Pinterest. You can gain more insights about the people who are repinning your pins and the the pins coming from your domain. For Instagram I use Iconosquare. Thanks Stuart!" - Ileane Smith

Re: Facebook Responds To Flak Over Study That Tinkered With Users’ News Feeds - AllFacebook - http://allfacebook.com/faceboo...
"I guess they "assume" people share their "real" feelings on Facebook. Also, what does "common worry" refer to in this sentence: "We felt that it was important to investigate the common worry that seeing friends post positive content leads to people feeling negative or left out." I was never worried about anything like that - I would love to know who the "common" people are that worry about these types of things." - Ileane Smith

Re: How To Avoid Making The Biggest Rookie Mistake With Images - http://www.carolamato.com/how-to-...
"What a powerful message you're sending out Carol, thanks so much for sharing this. I even picked up a few tips myself (like the one about WordPress picking the medium sized image by default). I think you'll find that most people didn't know how to add a link to an image with the new WordPress interface. Cheers!!" - Ileane Smith

Re: Podcasting for Beginners: The Complete Guide to Getting Started With Podcasts - https://blog.bufferapp.com/podcast...

Re: Slideshare: A Content Marketing Imperative - http://feldmancreative.com/2014...
"Thanks for all of the advice for creating great content for SlideShare. I enjoyed reading Todd Wheatland's book and he gave the platform some great coverage. Interesting to see that the Pro accounts are gone and I'm hoping they are revamping all the options. I downgraded my account last year because I didn't find as much value in it as I thought I would. Part of the problem was I didn't even realize all of the tools that were available to me until after I decided to downgrade." - Ileane Smith

Re: Syndicated Content: Why, When & How - http://searchengineland.com/...
"I came here after watching the YouTube video Eric and Mark did on this topic. Great info and this is something I always wondered about. My question is how do we go about discovering which one of these method a syndication site uses. For example is there a list of sites that use NoIndex? Do most syndication sites have a specific policy or do they decide on a case by case basis? Thanks!" - Ileane Smith

Re: Are episode numbers REALLY necessary? – TAP175 - http://theaudacitytopodcast.com/are-pod...
"Hi Daniel. I really enjoyed this episode. Do you have a link to the comments that Dino made? I must have missed them but I agree with him totally! I find that most of the time I completely ignore episode numbers when they are mentioned in a podcast and here's why: I listen to podcasts in the car on the way to and from work or at night when I'm taking a break from being in front of a monitor. As long as I know the website url of the podcast, I can go to the site and find the show notes I need using the search box. If for some reason the person doesn't have a search box (or they don't have a good search tool) as a last resort I will go to the show's iTunes web page and scroll down the list of show titles until I see the one I want. Then I can come back to the site and I have a better chance of finding what I want. But for a podcast addict like me, who subscribes to tons of podcasts, the episode numbers are wasted. I use the Google powered search on my podcast and my blog and the great..." - Ileane Smith

Re: Blog Comments: Should Your Blog Shut Down Comments? - http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/blog-co...
"I haven't used Disqus but the one advantage is that the comments actually appear on Google+ which also tends to encourage more sharing and plus ones over there." - Ileane Smith

"Great episode Harry. I'm like you and I can listen to Elsie talk about podcasting all day long. She is so bright and bubbly. And to answer her question - Yes! I definitely would podcast if there were no iTunes. I'm on Spreaker, Audioboo, Mixclound, SoundCloud and anywhere else I can find to upload my show. Cheers!" - Ileane Smith

Re: Blog Comments: Should Your Blog Shut Down Comments? - http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/blog-co...
"Hi Mike, I'm currently using the native WordPress commenting system and on some blog posts I added Google+ comments as well. The down side to using a Google+ comment plugin on WordPress is that you don't get notifications. However I also have a Blogger blog and those Google+ notifications do come through. Spam moderation is a waste of time and energy and the bigger your blog gets the spam increases exponentially. Bot are easy enough to get rid of with plugins like GASP, but the real issue is the human spammers who are desperately seeking links. Even in the case of Google+ comments spammers are adding erroneous links to their comments. Honestly it's one of the down side to having any type of online property so I'm not surprised to see bloggers taking drastic measures to avoid them. With that said, I agree with Mark's feedback about encouraging dialog by asking good questions and looking at the business benefits of commenting. Thanks for having three different perspectives but I'd also..." - Ileane Smith

Re: YouTube Embeds: Do They Affect The Credibility of Your Website? - http://www.reelseo.com/youtube...
"This is interesting but I'm not sure we can draw too many conclusions from it. After all, using the word "credibility" is very subjective in the first place. What I mean by that is - what happens if I already know, like a trust a brand before ever visiting their website? If I see a YouTube video embedded there does that mean I no longer trust the brand? Losing "credibility" should take more than just the interaction with embedded videos. Here's another way to look at it - what if a video auto-plays on a site when you get there? How does that effect credibility? Does it matter if the auto-play video is from YouTube or Wistia? Probably not. I just feel like there are a lot of other factors to consider." - Ileane Smith

I just switched over from PC to Mac and the only downside is that I can't record sound coming from my computer. I've recorded over 150 YouTube videos with Screencast-o-matic pro and it's an affordable alternative at only $15 per year." - Ileane Smith

"Great episode. It was cool to hear Ezra talk about what worked and the differences between his eCommerce conversions and info product conversions. I have one suggestion - can you please add an image to your posts so that I can pin them on Pinterest? I've pinned the logo already. I'm guessing you have something in the works already but I just wanted to give you some feedback. Thanks!!" - Ileane Smith
