Here is a list of the top 10 sites by unique visitors, visits and page views (they are different) after 8 weeks of the Marketing with Social Media MBA course.
The students are following a variety of posting patterns and those with a presence in the social networks can also be said to be working them. The graduate students have different blogging rhythms – 1-3 times daily and at various lengths – 200- to 600+ words and are actively creating internal and external links.
The students are also guest posting twice during the week: here at BillBelew.com and at a classmate’s site of their choice.
The students are also required to write evergreen/anchor/pillar posts weekly.
Take a moment to check each site to see who is doing what right.
