How Corporate Blogging got us from Google PageRank 0 to PageRank 6 in 8 months

That's right. Unbelievable. Even to us. And it only cost us sweat. Making sure the copy was interesting and well written. Making sure we took a little extra time to tweet and retweet. Making sure we pushed it to reddit and digg. Making sure we used Facebook and Linkedin as well to disseminate our ideas to our friends and business partners.

by Gianluigi Cuccureddu and Richard Kastelein. That's right.  Unbelievable. Even to us.  And it only cost us sweat. Making sure the copy was interesting and well written. Making sure we took a little extra time to tweet and retweet. Making sure we pushed it to Reddit and Digg. Making sure we used Facebook and Linkedin as well to disseminate our ideas to our friends and business partners. Scroll down to the very bottom of this page and see the dynamic PR ranking. A check three weeks ago, delivered us a marvelous sign that we are doing well with the Agora Media Group blog. After the Agora Media’s own Social Media case -> 16000% growth we pushed further in order to expand our visibility and expertise. Corporate Blogging and an attached Social Media strategy to get our opinions and analyses out is practically the only Marketing we did to get the word out of the Agora Media Group. Surely PageRank is not the most important metric, but what it does tell is that we're linked back from important sites. We achieved this by applying the Social Media Framework which we wrote about. In essence it's about the Content, Context and Social Media Intelligence which enhances both Content and Context. Content * Context * Social Media Intelligence = Powerful Social Media
