Here is a list of the top 20 sites by unique visitors, visits and page views (they are different) after 9 weeks of the Marketing with Social Media MBA course.
The students are following a variety of posting patterns.
Some are actively working their social networks.
The students have different blogging rhythms - 1-3 times daily and various lengths of posts – 200- to 600+ words.
All are actively creating internal and external links and fishing, legitimately, for back links.
The students are guest posting twice each week: here at BillBelew.com and at a classmate’s site of their choice.
The students also write evergreen/anchor/pillar posts weekly.
Take a moment to check each site to see who is doing what right.
