Created by Oatmeal
The above graphic came from a quiz available at the amazingly funny website, The Oatmeal. After taking the quiz I had the option to post my to Twitter, Facebook, e-mail or embed in my blog. All The Oatmeal had to do was put it up and his fans have done all the work in generating traffic and buzz about the quiz.
By now you’ve become familiar with the idea of sharing items by e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and a variety of other sites. The embed to your blog & website might not cross your mind when you’re building a page on your site or launching a new feature. It should. It’s an even more valuable feature the share options because you are providing the code to bloggers. That means you control where the content links to and what words it links from. With an even mildly successful launch you can create a firestorm of valuable inbound links.
- Make it shareable.
- Providing an embed code for bloggers is SEO gold.
