How to write titles that people will click – 4 of my favorite tools

This morning I watched another fabulous Periscope by my buddy Kim Garst. She is hands-down my favorite person to watch on Periscope (and blab and Facebook and Twitter…..).

And today she was discussing one of my favorite tools for creating titles. Her focus was on creating the best Periscope Title, but the tool she suggested can be used in all sorts of situations where you need to create a title that is attractive to your target audience (blog posts, YouTube titles, eBook titles Facebook posts etc..)

She inspired me to do a scope of my own and show the other tools I use to inspire the creativity in creating titles that will be so attractive to the target audience that they can’t help but click!

Below the Scope are the slides from my recent training session that are linked right to the tool! enjoy!

Another Reason Why I Love G+ – Social SEO Evidence from Martin Shervington <- my hero

This is one of the reasons I love G+ and why Martin Shervington is my (social) hero. Here is a bit from the video description:

Every post on Google+ is indexed by Google, so content that is amplified on G+ can surface very quickly in Search. Check out the ‘SEO Facts’ and ‘Evidence’ here!

Watch the under 2 minute video to see why I’m a fan. It’s STILL all about Search.

My Take on 10 Vital WordPress Plugins

Phyllis Khare TimeBliss.me

I get asked this question a lot…

“What are the best WordPress plugins for my new blog?”

So I decided to put what I know about these top WordPress plugins into a blog post. Next time someone asks me “What are the best WordPress plugins for my new blog?” I will just send them here! And Hello if I’ve just sent you here :-)

This is a simple list of plugins for a new WordPress site. You might not need all of these and you might need some, not listed, that are specific to your field. Start with these and ask questions in the comments. There are hundreds of good plugins. Seriously. But you only need a few good and highly functional ones to get started.

The BEST way to install these plugins are to go into your WP Dashboard — > Plugins. Do a search for the name of the plugin and install from there.
If you are completely new to the WordPress plugin interface you might want to watch a few instructional videos before you tackle this.

 

Here are MY top ten favorite plugins:

 

Hangout plus Twitter Chat? How cool is that?

Do you like G+ On Air Hangouts? What about Twitter Chats? If you answered YES to both of these, then you might LOVE this new tool that puts them together in ONE online interface called a Nestivity “tweetcast” – cool, right?
