[Guagua Pública] It's SEO Stupid - Max Strategy

Few people understand the seemingly scatter-shot approach I use for web production.  It shouldn't be a mystery, it is very simple. It is ALL about search engine optimization.  From the domain name to the content, each of my web sites is SEO driven.

However, they also accomplish one other thing.  Each of the sites is a tribe.  A tribe built around keywords.  As I continue to add more and more sites, I unite more and more tribes.  They are my tribes (translated into Spanish, Mis Tribus).  This is what I'm talking about:

[Guagua Pública] Facebook Engagement for Advertising is a Lie

I recently received an infographic from SocialBaker that blew me away.  In their report "January 2013 Social Media Report: Facebook Pages in the United States" they include the following table:

In the section entitled the "Top 5 Facebook Brands by Post Engagement Rate" it clearly states that the "Average Post Engagement Rate" is ONLY 0.166 %

Of the top 5 Facebook brands, the highest, the highest, is still only 5.8873 %.  There it is ladies and gentleman, as plain as the nose on the end of your face.  Even if you are the best at brand engagement in Facebook, you will only get a 5% engagement rate for any piece of content (advertisement) you share.

[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] Coordination for 1st prPIG Meeting

I'm trying to nail down the location, the date, and the time for the first meeting.  One of our partners ASOPYMES has volunteered to host our first meeting.  Their offices are in the Association of Teachers building near the Department of Labor station of the Tren Urbano.

I'm shooting for the last week of February, either the 25th, 26th or 27th.  While I would prefer the meeting during business hours, I'm open to suggestion.  Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

If I don't hear back from the group by 2/18/13, I'll setup the meeting and let you know the where and the when.

Goal for 2013 - Aggregate

As some of my friends have mentioned, I administer a large stable of web properties.  When confronted with answering the question, "where they should look for all of the most recent news about Mis Tribus or Kevin Shockey?"  I want to be perfectly clear.  It will be here on the Mis Tribus home page.

To that end, I've begun a process of aggregation, that will ensure that all of my writing and news will appear on this blog.  While I know this will produce duplicate posts, I currently can't aggregate them without duplication.  I have the plans for how to aggregate them, but until I have the funding and resources, this "machetazo" solution will have to do.  Enjoy!
