Well! The title is misleading but today mingling is also being present in, at least, some social networks… and they are so many.
Sold Out Activist made a plugin called PingPressFM but it only worked with WordPress regular. Since we needed it to work in WordPressμ for our new Humaneasy Consulting sites — the main site and this blog, among other ideias — I put my hands on his code and made the necessary changes to make it work.
I started with two untested patches but then I realize that too many things must be changed to make it work the way I want and… pingPressFM4μ was born.
Now it seems to works just fine. I’m testing it right now…
… Why is this so important?
Mainly by two reasons:
- It is a less expensive way to promote your business, even if you don’t advertise on those social networks
- It is a great way to make a brand for your business or for yourself because of its high exposure to search engines due to cross linking
For you to have an idea we posted an article ONE DAY ago and it was promoted automatically in just three social networks — Identi.ca, Facebook and LinkedIn — and today it appeas in Google’s first page for the search “communicating biodiversity”.
Of course, having good SEO is also fundamental. I’ll get on this latter on.
