Fixing Issues with Tumblr and Other Web 2.0s in IFTTT Networks

By April


During Episode 53 of Hump Day Hangout, one question raised is about issues with Tumblr templates and other Web 2.0s in the IFTTT networks.

The exact question asked was:

Hey Guys..Having a a couple small problems with my first IFTTT network. 1) Tumblr does to NOT let me enter the HTML into the description area under the title to add our links to the Google Plus About page and our Blogger account. Everything else went fine until I tried adding the “<br><ahref=”https://plus.google.com/b/116025903679913075163/116025903679913075163/about” after the brief description that was already there under editing. The above code actual shows up on the Tumblr page as you type it in the editor now. Click “Save” then refresh the page and and the html all shows up under the description as text along with the description and no hyperlinks. When Bradley did the training the code never showed up but the other text did as it should.  2) WordPress is giving me a problem with verifying my WordPress site for Gravatar. Blogger , Google+ and YouTube went just fine. Rechecked all emails and passwords three time and tried re-verifying a few times. They were all entered correctly. No luck. The following message in quotes appears when the verification fails: “No Blogs Found – Either your WordPress Blog is not Responding or it's not listing any of the blogs against the account details you entered. Please check that the username/password you entered are for an account which is associated with at least one blog.” Thanks for your recommendations…wasn't on last week but watched the replay…thanks for all the great stuff on Tier 2 link building and correct structuring… really helped me make sense of a lot of questions I've had for a while. 🙂 Ed?


Web 2.0 Account Creation Question From HDHO Episode 33

By Semantic Mastery

 

During Episode 33 of the Semantic Mastery Hump Day Hangouts, a viewer asked the following question:

I've been reading a lot about web 2.0 tools/bots and am trying to differentiate between how effective they are. For a 2.0 builder like Money Robot, how does building out your own IFTTT networks differ as far as the actual “work” getting done. When it's all said and done, isn't it basically the same thing as far as what properties are build and linking actually done.

There is actually a lot that goes in to answering this question as it can depend on your strategy and end goals. We gave our reasons behind using, or not using, account creators (like FCS Networker), and also explained theming and interlinking the web 2.0 accounts (why we do this) – something that we always do with our IFTTT Networks.

There are certainly strategies that can make use of account creators – check out the video for more information.

 


Syndwire Alternative

Free Syndwire Alternative With Unlimited Network Size

 

 

Syndwire offers syndication to many web 2.0 and social services – but did you know that you can do much of the same thing for free? It's all about knowing where and how to go about doing this by utilizing the content syndication capability of IFTTT (see ifttt.com). There are recipes that have been created and their free service tied together with RSS feeds. Download the free IFTTT PDF guide by clicking on the image above.

How is it that you can grow this into an unlimited sized network? The reason is that you can configure IFTTT to syndicate (…synd…) out to many different properties from a variety of sources. Not only can you use the set properties that show up in the IFTTT Channel dashboard, but did you notice that there is also a “RSS” channel? This means that you can input ANY valid RSS feed (website, web 2.0, YouTube, etc) and syndicate that information out to any of the properties listed – or create different recipes via sending by email (another supported method in IFTTT).

What does this mean for you? This means that you can do content marketing and video marketing on a much larger scale, and more easily than every before while still including social media accounts and social networking, but without much of the time consuming manual posting. Just like content marketing, social media marketing is a great way to get “more eyeballs” on your website and to gather high quality backlinks over time. And even better, this can be used with websites, posts, pages, social networking, and video marketing!

Automation (done easily, and correctly) really is the ultimate content syndication tool! When you syndicate content you're providing the right signals including social signals that get your results like ranking videos and posts that go higher in the SERPs.

Free Syndwire alternative with unlimited content

Once you have realized the multitude of ways that these can be connected, you are starting to see how powerful this can be for setting up high Domain Authority backlinks, content syndication, and social signals. Does that mean Syndwire is obsolete? No! It's a good tool that we use in our own businesses for powering our IFTTT properties and can be used for many other purposes – but we have found much better results using IFTTT to automate the processes and get results.
