This week’s #MondayMashup includes a little on Facebook Live, guest post tips, Local SEO myths, and a freebie icon set for download.
Just a note. I’ve been getting a lot of emails from people submitting their individual posts. When I say resources, I mean entire websites. I’d like to use those websites to pick from not just once, but several times. Also, a lot of the articles submitted, have been to pages or landing pages. That’s not acceptable. It has to be a blog post.
The purpose of #MondayMashup is to keep up-to-date in each of the niche discusses below, which are blogging, social media, SEO, and web design. Hopefully these picks will allow you to learn, and also provide from ideas for your own website and business.
