Awesome new social media features for Activerain Likes, +1, LinkedIn, & Tweets

You asked for them and you got 'em!  Now the power of social media is fully realized in the individual articles of every blogger on Activerain.  I have to say, this is one of the most powerful and useful features I've seen added in a long time.  The beauty part of it is that you can build much better ranking in both social networks and search engines as a result of this new feature.

Activerain social media buttons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 LIKES:  The first button is the "Like" for Facebook.  The best thing about being liked on Facebook is that the articles you see the most activity on are the ones that show up in newsfeeds at top priority.  Unless your friends are all looking at "Most Recent" they'll see your "Liked" articles over others.  Plus, sites or articles on Facebook with a lot of likes will get picked up by Google and other search engines.

Google +1:  As you're well aware, getting hundreds of these will do wonders for your SEO and help put you or keep on on Page 1 of the SERPs.  The more people who like an article, the better as it shows up as having more authority than other similar pages.  By having the button on here so easily used, your subscribers can click articles they think are good and boost their rankings.  So, for all my subscribers - PLEASE CLICK +1!  Thanks!

LinkedIn Share:  For professional networking, it's hard to beat LinkedIn.  I have most of my fellow REALTORS networked on LinkedIn and publishing regular stories there let's them know I'm active in the market.  So, this makes it easy to share my articles and for my readers to share my articles with others.  Again, it gets me more exposure on another major social network.  Another huge plus to this is that when people share my articles on LinkedIn, it will help boost my Klout score!

Tweet:  For those of your on Twitter, all your blogs should be posted there.  This button makes it easy for people to not only reblog your articles (which boosts the deep linking Google likes so much) but also makes it easy for people to get your reblogged articles into Twitter which is also good for SEO and helps boost your Klout score.

So - THREE CHEERS FOR ACTIVERAIN!  These new features are going to be HUGE!
