How it works:

1) Target

We're blurring the lines and empowering writers to think content creation and distribution at the same time. The tags of your post will surface suggested Facebook & Twitter accounts to link to your content; edit the tags to optimize results article tags. For each post, select 2-5 discovered accounts that align with your editorial identity:

Pro tip #1: Instead of always going for the big names, be strategic and opt for lesser-known pages with solid fan bases. This increases the likelihood of building a content-sharing relationship.

Pro tip #2: To further attract attention and promote a Facebook page in your post's comments, check off 'Promote in comments' once you select a target account in Discovery search. Note: You can select only one account per post:

2) Connect

Social Outreach

Let account owners know your content exists and spark a relationship by sending subtle social pings in the form of an automatic 'like' of their recent post and/or directly emailing potential partners using built-in functionality.

Before you send social pings, you can easily choose to view which post the platform will like:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia.forumbee.com%2Fi%2F04cad9fe-62ca-4747-bc41-b4d3e30c23f3%2F547.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com&s=738&h=54e09d74c4043e2f1d5d0ba99266f10dad1fb71368b87848ad32cb31e4d25506&size=980x&c=2329752959 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia.forumbee.com%252Fi%252F04cad9fe-62ca-4747-bc41-b4d3e30c23f3%252F547.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com%26s%3D738%26h%3D54e09d74c4043e2f1d5d0ba99266f10dad1fb71368b87848ad32cb31e4d25506%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2329752959%22%7D" caption="" pin_description="" image-library="0" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

The result of sending a social ping:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Fmedia.forumbee.com%2Fi%2F52863410-8213-4f9d-a074-24ccc84d75d0%2F547.png&ho=https%3A%2F%2Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com&s=268&h=9bce63bc1c15f2afdc22aedf8f1e82bec85ad29e4f55be8a6e74cad223ed3650&size=980x&c=3395786150 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Fmedia.forumbee.com%252Fi%252F52863410-8213-4f9d-a074-24ccc84d75d0%252F547.png%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fs3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com%26s%3D268%26h%3D9bce63bc1c15f2afdc22aedf8f1e82bec85ad29e4f55be8a6e74cad223ed3650%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3395786150%22%7D" caption="" pin_description="" image-library="0" expand=1 photo_credit=""]

If you opted to promote a target account in your post comments, here's how it looks on Facebook once the ping is sent:

Email Outreach

Don't feel restricted to just using the pings sent through Discovery. Switch to email outreach drafts, where email functionality is built into the workflow. RebelMouse automatically pulls in email addresses of account owners and template language so you can easily message them, say you love their page, and indicate you have great stories for their fans:

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
