We all want more traffic and social shares for the content we create on our sites. So how can we get them? Easy… create content that provides value and is something that people actually want to share! Sounds easy enough right? Well… don’t think it’s that easy, but it is quite possible if you follow these simple steps. I’m sure once you’re done reading through this post, you might actually want to share it with your audience and social followers as well 🙂 Here’s five quick and easy ways to start creating content that people will actually want to share.
One of the problems with Twitter is that it can take a while to get the necessary exposure for your account and have hundred or even thousands of followers listening to what you have to say.

Monitoring your brand mentions and knowing your online reputation is extremely important. Not only does this apply to people who use their personal name as their business, but also for the name of your business, website or blog. For example, my personal name and blog have become a brand itself over the past several years. My name is “Zac Johnson” and my site is ZacJohnson.com, so this makes it easier for me to track the brand and monitor both my site and my personal name.
If you go to the search engine and type in your personal name what are you going to find? Hopefully a ton of results for YOU and your site properties. Of course this might be easier said than done depending on what your name is. If you have the same name as a celebrity or other well known figure it might not be so easy, but you still want to rank as much as you can.

Among all of the daily tasks and a problems that bloggers have to deal with, spam comments are probably the most annoying. First of all, once you see that little word cloud in your WordPress dashboard saying you have some new comments to approve, you feel excited! Then you are devastated to see they are just a bunch of spam comments! Nothing better than anchor text named imaginary people leaving idiotic generic comments to make your day better. Save yourself the time and bloggers the annoyance.
