Social media sites – a couple of them you may not know

Posted by TeamITI on February 21, 2009

The more places that you can place your content and links… the more chances that Google and your prospects have to find you. Besides the well known MySpace and Facebook sites, there are several small and powerful social media sites that you can use to extend your brand and build consumer interest.

Also consider participating on pages that don’t belong to you by posting comments to posts and articles that concern your products and services (with link back to your website).

The following is just a small sample.

Digg is made up of small sets of interests and is mostly focused on technology. However, you can use it for your travel/tourism related content and information. Even though your information may be buried and not gain much popularity, links posted here can dramatically influence your Google rankings.

As I poked around a little, I found an interesting link that compares various state tourism websites:

  1. Thank you for sharing these examples, and thank you for featuring Experience Columbus as one of them!

    Best,
    Irene

  2. This is a good list and I strongly believe that you are on the right track using social media for getting attention to traveling sites and blogs.

    For Traveling I would also recommend to use the picture galleries like Flickr. remember to tag your photos correctly, put your keywords in and throw in your URL.
