UPDATE: 27.11.2018

My recommendation is now that you pick one social media platform and focus on mastering that one. Study everything that you find about it and master it.

Provide engaging content with your audience consistently every day or at least every week, reply their questions and comments.

My favorite Social media channel is YouTube and I've focused building a large YouTube channel. You'll find me on YouTube by searching my name "Roope Kiuttu".

You can choose Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter or whatever channel fits the most for you.


I have usually shared all of my posts in 6 social medias. It took only 30 seconds with MassPlanner tool. Now MassPlanner is not available anymore but there are tons of other ones: Hootsuite, Buffer, etc.

Update: Nowadays MassPlanner doesn't officially exist anymore...

By sharing your posts on social medias, you will also build links to your website which is one metric for Google rankings. Social shares will also bring traffic and traffic means usually more $$$.

Number 5 => Share Your Posts on Social Medias

The next one is about building links.

I really like this. It is easy to read, makes sense and gives us quick, simple reminders of where we can dive right in and make improvements to our existing posts and greatly improve future posts.

I never thought competition of 300 made sense for a keyword with lower searches. I stuck to low competition but those often had lower searches as well (in the hundreds). I have recently started doing posts with keywords that have higher competition (maybe 100-200) but have much higher number of searches per month (3,000-5,000). This seems to be working well. I haven't ranked on the first page with these posts yet but they are rapidly rising up. If it continues, I can see this strategy could be quite successful. I get search traffic on these keywords already even though I started with more competition.

I need to bump up my word count and my posting frequency and also start adding videos.

Sounds interesting! I need to start it myself. Would you like to give examples what kind of keywords have you used?

Nice training.
I think sharing on social media is very important and it also helps with ranking if you get others to share your post privately or publicly. The more the better.

That's true! )

This is really great, in support of your last point my first 10 articles that I wrote as a newbie without any SEO or rankings or even a fully built site got over 2250 pages loads, and I never went in to update them so it wasn't me putting up those numbers - good helpful content is found magically out there it seems!

Also I was wondering does it ever worry you that when you ask for comments in here that people may also be copying your content and ideas?

Hey Roope,
Thank you for taking the time to share this. Short and sweet! I love it! It makes sense.
I'm going to get busy right away and do some of the things you discuss here.
Thanks again!
