LinkedIn now has a newsroom of 65 journalists. It’s hiring more.

In Dan Roth’s dream world, members of LinkedIn, where he has served as editor in chief since 2011, would habitually read the LinkedIn Daily Rundown with their morning cup of coffee.

They’d then turn their attention to the site’s podcast or newsletter during their commute to work. When they get to their desks, they’d open LinkedIn.com on their browsers, where they can read from a carefully curated feed of professional and business news throughout their work day. Users who felt inspired by the content would share links on their own timeline. They’d check their notifications tab to see if others have engaged with the content they share. 

Who knows? They might even talk about one of LinkedIn’s articles at their next staff meeting.

This is Roth’s aspiration for LinkedIn’s 645 million members and for workers who have yet to use the site. He envisions LinkedIn as the perfect “utility” for professionals.

7 Easy-to-Forget SEO Steps You Need to Consider Every Time You Publish

By: @JerodMorris

JerodMorris400x400It’s easy to forget about the basic SEO steps I’m going to outline below, but they shouldn’t be overlooked.

Because the minute I stop taking them is the minute my content starts attracting fewer targeted visitors. Same goes for you.

So let’s start at the top, because the first one is by far the most important of the seven — and it will take me the longest to explain.

SEO Step #1: Be extra intentional about your SEO title tag

SEO Step #2: While you’re at it, be strategic with your meta description too

SEO Step #3: Decide if your post will need a 301 redirect in the future

SEO Step #4: See if you should add a “noindex” tag

See the details from @JerodMorris about each step and the other 3 steps by clicking the CopyBlogger link below:
