Learning Social Media Strategy By Doing Social Media – My Humbling Experience with Search Results for “Annoying Facebook Pictures”

Recently, I led a Consumer Research project that featured some very wonderful Innovation Consultants from Strategos who preached the gospel of “learning by doing”.  Or, as Vas Vasiliadis would say, “You got to get in there and make the sausage, man.”

“Learning By Doing” has since become my professional mantra.  I started this Social Media Strategy blog solely to learn techniques for my current job.  Writing a blog teaches you a lot about content strategy, search engine optimization, and community building.  I wanted detailed knowledge on these topics so I could better execute Social Media Strategy.

Google Webmaster tools have taught me so much about the way people look for information on the internet.  Search Engine Optimization is truly an art-form and the most skilled practitioners are worth their weight in gold.

Today, while checking my account I noticed that my page had a high search engine result for “Annoying Facebook Pictures.”  I Googled it, and the results weren’t quite what I intended when I wrote my post about Facebook’s Monetization Strategy for Facebook Credits.

If you came here from a Facebook link I posted, I’ve probably annoyed you in the past so this is your opportunity to let me have it in the comments… I deserve it.

However, Google…we’re still friends.  I like the way you think about “corporate strategists.”

    I just figured you were going for the WSJ look absent the really good artist to render it for you – a really bad idea as it turns out. Too much photoshop is a dangerous tool in the wrong hands. A hilarious outcome though.
