SuperPost Sunday – Weekly Roundup #3

extra extra paper boy SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #3

Hellooo My Lovely nittyGriddy Readers,

Looks like Sunday’s here again! Wow, that was quick!

New Name for My Weekly Roundup Posts

In last Sunday’s Weekly Roundup, I asked my blogger friends and readers to vote on what I should name this weekly series. I was rather hesitant between a couple options and was unable to make the decision for myself, so the good peeps of the blogosphere stepped in to lend a helping hand :).

Thanks a mil to all of you who took the time to leave your comments including Thu, Extreme John and Michele. They were all taken into consideration and were very much appreciated.

As you can see, SuperPost Sunday is the lucky winner!

About That Smart Gini Dietrich Woman

I wanted to give a special shout out to the fabulous and incredibly smart Gini Dietrich from Gini was kind enough to give me her opinion as well as some wise SEO advice which I hadn’t thought of. A very BIG thank you to YOU. Oh, and YES Gini, you win lol :-)!

Here are the comments she left for me on last weeks Weekly Roundup.

If you’re not familiar with Gini’s uber popular blog, I highly suggest you head over there once you’re all done here. There’s tons of valuable information to take in from the many insightful articles on Communication, Social Media, SEO, Marketing and more.

SuperPost Sunday – The Roundup

I’m gonna’ attempt to do something today that I don’t often do in my blog posts. GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT without my usual entertaining rambling lol ;). Although, I did a bit of it above, but just a bit!


Here it comes…

“Without further ado and blah blah,” I present you with this week’s links to some of the top articles I’ve come across that revolve around Social Media, Blogging Tips, SEO, Internet Marketing, Traffic Building, Online Money Making Tools and more.

If I may say so myself, I think this is a pretty kick-ass roundup (as usual), so make sure you make a little time to read as many of these as you can. Think of it as constructive homework lol ;). The fun kind, that you won’t be graded and quizzed on later.

Don’t forget to voice your thoughts in the comments.

Social Media

There’s nothing like the basics to help bring things back into focus when you feel lost. In “Marketing 101,” the acronym AIDA stands for Awareness, Interest, Desire and Action. This is the most simple and rudimentary…

The great thing about social media (and blogs that talk about social media and how it can be used for personal, business, blogging, marketing and more) is that there’s a ton of information available on how it can…

I would not describe the hospitality industry as a community of early adopters when it comes to social media. As a specialist in hotel reputation management, I’ve watched hoteliers confront companies such as Trip Advisor…

Online Money Making Tools

AdSense checklist has just been recently launched by Google for publishers that are just starting or interested in improving their experience with the program. The checklist consists of five parts, offering basic recommendations…

In blogger circles, the word “monetize” is a huge buzzword. Everybody is looking to “monetize” their blogs. Typically, you already have a blog and then you think, “Hmmm, how can I make money with this thing?”…


Link building is one of the most important parts of any good SEO plan. Your success in optimizing your blog for search engines as well as generating traffic to it depends almost exclusively on link building. But, where do you start? How do you…

Rich Skrenta has been at the core of search longer than I have been in the SEO market. He is famous for launching sites like DMOZ and Topix. His most recent project is a search engine called blekko…


Whenever I tell people I work from home, this is the common reaction, “I could never do that because I would spend all my time sleeping or watching T.V.” It’s pretty amusing to hear a statement like this because I’m not a very motivated person…

Every blogger has tools they like to use to get different tasks on their blog completely. Doesn’t matter what you need to get done on your blog, there is more than one tool to help you do it…

In the process of building the first mailing list here, it became so obvious what should be more relevant for my daily efforts, content creation. In addition, this goes to say that articles that are evergreen should be something which will always…

I guarantee that just about everyone reading this is a preblogger. Whether you’re getting ready to launch your very first blog or are a seasoned pro busy plotting your next uber-successful online venture, the majority of us are in some stage…

I’ve lost count of the number of guest posts I have written this year but I’m very sure I have written over 270 guest posts. One question I get asked often is that how on earth have I been able to write so many guest posts? How am I able to…

Want some attention from a  twitterer/tweep/twitter user or a person who tweets? Not getting any attention from them? Great! I’m going show you some which helped me to get some attention from other twitter users, whether they are…

Believe it or not, there’s a lot that we can learn from sex and apply it to marketing. You Need to Warm Them Up First. You wouldn’t approach a complete stranger with this opening line, “hi, how are you? Do you want to have sex?” In business…

I have spent a lot of time thinking about diversification within blog posts and articles that I publish on sites like Associated Content. The reason for so much thought on the subject is because every blogger on occasion struggles…

In the ongoing race between the 3 premium WordPress theme titans – Headway, Thesis and Genesis – Headway, in my opinion, has managed to drastically differentiate itself from the others making it the preferred choice for…

    Ingrid.. TY for adding my post :) I really Appreciate it

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hola John,

      You’re most welcome. Great stuff! You always have such insightful and useful tips to share on your blog, that it’s difficult to pick just one or two to include in a roundup :). I’ll just have to make up for it in my upcoming SuperPost’s ;).

      Thanks a lot for stopping by here.
      Have a great week.

      • John Paul

        Thanks for that Ingrid.. I’m glad you like the blog posts :)

  • Daniel Sharkov

    Hey Ingrid,

    A great collection of articles here! Don’t have the time to check all of them, but for the three I did, The Failure of “Blog Monetization” by David Risley is by far my favourite. Really liked the way he used a pizza and a pizza shop to explain why so many people fail at monetization.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Danel,

      How are you?

      Happy to have you back here again ;). Thanks for stopping by and sharing your 2 cents.

      It’s quite a list indeed, but of course, it does demand some spare time to read all these! I’m glad you had the chance to read a few and Yes, David Risley’s article is fantastic. I really like the pizza shop analogy as well. But then again, he’s always got some great posts to share. I’ve become a fan of his site and work.

      Have a good week.

  • TristanH

    Thanks for the mention of my article at Traffic Generation Cafe, Ingrid! And thanks (and curses!) for giving more stuff to read and making me even less productive than I already am :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hiya Tristan,

      Lol for the curses! I totally know what you mean. It seems like all I’ve been doing lately is all about blogs and blogging! But, I’m lovin’ it :).

      You’re most welcome for your article. It was great and super helpful! Ana has one heck of a site there with Traffic Generation Cafe. I never cease to learn new things from the posts on there!

      Enjoy the rest of the week. Happy reading ;).
      And thanks for stopping by.


  • Onibalusi Bamidele

    This is awesome Ingrid,

    Lots of great posts here :).

    It’s people like you who are encouraging bloggers to keep on writing great posts. Thanks so much for including a link to my blog, I’ll be reading the other posts too.

    Thanks so much,

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Onibalusi, thanks so much for your encouraging words. Well, if it weren’t for people like you who write such great posts then I wouldn’t have my SuperPost Sunday, would I? :). Really great stuff you got there – as usual. 270 GP’s in 8 months is an impressive number my friend! Way to go – and keep ’em comin’!Thanks again for stopping by. Much appreciated.Happy MondayCheers

  • Extreme John

    Wow you put some serious time into this roundup every week, I give you a ton of credit. Heading over to read Tristan’s post, haven’t seen that one yet.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey John,

      That’s really cool of you of to say and notice – thank you :). Tristan’s post is pretty insightful – as are most on here. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.

    I just found another list on Thu Nguyens blog and actuall found your site from a comment you left on her article. Lists like this are nice, there is so much out there, it’s nice to have a list of useful stuff.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi there and welcome,
      Not sure what to call you and yahoo – SMCJDLB….. is a bit too long to type lol :).

      Thu actually has one heck of a roundup this week with 32 awesome posts from around the blogosphere!

      I’m glad you found your way here. Hopefully, some of these will come in handy for you. As you said – these lists are pretty useful to have.

      Cheers and thanks for stopping by.

  • Gini Dietrich

    Hahaha!! I love to win, but more I love what you chose and YOU came up with that! This is a fabulous list and a great resource. I’m with G, though. I don’t know how you do it. I do five a week and that takes a looong time. And thanks for including Ann’s guest post. I’ll let her know!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Gini Gini Gini :)

      First and foremost – thank you again for persuading (giving me wise advice) me to go with SuperPost Sunday. YaY!

      I’m so happy you found this list fabulous – as I honestly think it’s pretty great too. There are so many great posts out there to learn from and I’m trying to get as many as possible to be read.

      As for how I do it. I’ve got bags under my eyes for my lack of sleep. That and I’ve been spending most of my time focusing on this blog that I absolutely love instead of working on my ‘real work’ – you know – the kind where actual clients and $ are involved lol :). And I’m dearly paying the price for it now as I have another all nighter tonight to try and finish a huge project that’s due tomorrow. Oh well. Nothing like working under pressure.

      Ann’s post is super informative and interesting.

      I hope you liked the few words I said about you – I obviously meant them!

      Thanks so much for all your support and encouragement. Always a pleasure to have you on here.
      Wishing you a lovely Sunday.
      All the best


      • Gini Dietrich

        I LOVE what you said. I’m not sure Spin Sucks is uber popular yet” but it’s in the plan to get there. You’re the bomb – thank you!

        • Ingrid Abboud

          “Hey, if I say it’s uber, then by God it’s uber!” (To be said out loud in a serious motherly tone while pointing the index finger hahahaha) I’m kidding ;). But seriously, I most definitely think it’s great (as many I’m sure do too) and I have no doubt you will surpass uber very soon! (Wow, I’m really going all out with the dorky these days – now there’s no way in hell I’m gonna’ be able to convince you that I was the popular girl in high school, college & real adult life lol)Glad you liked the mention :)!Cheers Gini

  • Thu Nguyen

    Yay! I knew there was something about networking that gets you noticed. LOL. Thanks so much Ingrid for the mention. I really appreciate your skills with the Sunday posts so far and I’ve been to all 3! Ha, call that a fan!

    But really because you have featured some quality posts which I have not seen elsewhere. So hats off to you for that as well as introducing us to some quality reads. That’s the purpose of roundups and you’re rockin it.

    I’m finding a lot of the things you read resonates with me so thank you. Lovin’ it!

    How’s your weekend been so far? Mines, going too quick. As always. :)

    Talk soon, whether here on the blog or Twitter. :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      I guess the social part does work after all lol ;). It’s funny – but all it really takes is respect, politeness and appreciation plus a couple other charismatic characteristics – I guess to me those are common sense.

      I just love it when you stop by here to share your kind and positive feedback Thu. You always have something nice and and encouraging to say and I really appreciate it. And on top of that, you’re a great blogger with insightful things to share as well as a super gal :).

      I’m psyched that you think the posts I share here are top notch and original. I do my best to include what I like and what I think others will too – and in the process, hopefully benefit from them.

      As for my weekend, hmmm…I’m spending my Sunday working (the real kind) to make up for my slackin’ during the week. Gonna be a long night ahead trying to finish a project that’s due tomorrow. Other than that – my weekends, like yours, just end way toooo quickly!

      Thanks again for your kind words. There’s nothing like the feeling of knowing that your work is appreciated by others.

      Enjoy your Sunday.

  • SEOcopy

    Wow you are a busy little bee. I thought I was a posting fool – lol I have been slacking lately but on a monthly basis we try to put out 20 posts per month. For our blog and all our guest posts. Yikes… I just discovered this Sunday Round-Up I’ll have to remind myself to stop by and see what I missed. Once again right on the mark signorina :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Lol :)

      I gotta’ admit that I finished writing this yesterday so all I had to do today was revise it one last time and click publish! Plus, I don’t post nearly as often as I used to but working on that. I’m aiming for a consistent 3 a week, but will see.

      Wow, 20 a month is fantastic. Looks like you’re indeed the Queen Bee on that one! Good for you. And may I add, that you’ve got some great posts. Funny cause I just finished reading and RTing “Can I just do On Page SEO and Tell Off Page to Take a Hike” – good stuff!!

      If only I were that busy little bee when it came to real work lol. The kind I’m supposed to be doing now for a client – seeing that the project is due tomorrow. Well, another long night ahead for me!

      I’m glad you discovered this weekly series. Make sure to check back on Sunday’s cause there’s always some great articles by super peeps!

      Thanks for the encouraging comment :).
