This week we have some great articles on optimization, how to take the mystery out of social media, and, everyone’s favorite, a “best time to post” post.
After a whirlwind year of Google updates this quick overview of what optimization methods are still valid as of now is a great helper for starting off the year.

Backlinks are often one of the most difficult parts of SEO, but if you follow Justin’s advice he’ll show you how to get 33 worth having.
Before you say anything, I know that every site and community is unique and it’s very possible that they go against “the best days” trends and so you should be doing your own testing. However, posts like these can be helpful in at least giving you a head start by knowing where to begin looking and testing.
You may look at the title of this post and say “hey Josh, what they heck are you trying to pull? Isn’t this the SEARCH and SOCIAL weekly?” and I’ll say yes… yes it is. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from other mediums that can support your search and social goals. Email is a great way to reach your core audience and that audience (if you can get them to open your emails) can help you share content, write reviews, tweet about something related to a campaign, etc. Email is a powerful tool that can assist your search and social efforts and vice versa.
Yes this is from my own blog, but that doesn’t stop it from being good information. This is series is going to be the theme on the blog for the next few weeks so stay tuned to see how this all shapes up and at the end I’ll have a bonus, free, download of a presentation about the convergence of search and social available.
That’s it for this week. Thanks for reading,
