Syndicating your Empower Network Blog Posts Part 1
by Patrick Ray | on October 26, 2012
This is the first part of a series of posts on syndicating your Empower Network blog posts (or any other for that matter). This series is written mostly for people getting started with the Empower Network or those who are not familiar with the concepts related to syndication.
Why Syndicate your Empower Network Blog?
Have you ever wondered how the search engines such as Google and Bing determine what order to list the results in? The answer to that question involves the concept of relevance. The more relevant the content of a page is in relation to the keyword being searched, the higher it will list on a search engine. One of the factors involved is the domain the post resides on. If you listen to the weekly audios, you know that the Empower Network is one of the most visited sites on the internet, according to alexa.com. This makes Empower Network what is known as an “authority website” which, by itself, adds relevance to the content on it. This is one reason why Dave and Dave insist that all members blog daily. One of the other factors that raise the relevance of your blog is the layout of the blog itself. For example, are your keywords contained in the title or headers, are they underlined, highlighted or bolded? Each of these factors in to the relevance. If you write a blog post in the Empower Network and do not have a green checkmark on every entry item on the SEO score widget, go back and fix your post until you do. The factors above play a role in determining relevance, but there is a much bigger factor: Syndicating your Empower Network blog.
So What Exactly is Syndicating your Empower Network Blog?
Syndicating simply means to have your blog post, or more accurately, a link to your post located in several locations on the internet. Did you ever see an article you liked and shared it on Facebook? If so, you helped to syndicate that article. The search engines constantly search the internet for links. The more times it sees a URL, the more relevant it is, and therefore will list higher when a keyword is searched for. In order to even get a chance to rank high, syndicating your Empower Network blog posts is an absolute must.

Syndicating your Empower Network Blog Posts Part 2
My last blog on this topic described the concept of syndication and how it affects search engine results. This post will show you how to automatically repost links to your Empower Network blog posts onto various social media websites.
Syndicating your Empower Network Blog using Automated Tools
The main tool we will use to begin syndicating your Empower Network blogis a website called IFTTT.com. IFTTT stands for “if this then that”. The site allows you to set up an action if another (trigger) action occurs. Specifically, we want IFTTT to look for the presence of a new blog post on your Empower Network RSS feed. When it detects a new blog post, it will automatically begin syndicating your Empower Network blog on whatever social media site you tell it to. This programmed action is called a “recipe.” You will need to create a new recipe for each website you want to post your blog link to. You will also need an account for each of the websites you want IFTTT to post to, since it posts to your page on each of the websites.
Syndicating your Empower Network Blog, step by step walkthrough:
1. Go to IFTTT.com and set up your account.
2. Open accounts for the following social media sites if you do not already have an account with them:
Google Reader (this site can use your Gmail login info)
Flickr (this site can use your Yahoo login info)
Each of the sites listed above will be the ones automatically posted to on your behalf. You may notice that Facebook is not listed above. This is because, as of right now, Facebook completely blocks everything from Empower Network. If you try syndicating your Empower Network blog to Facebook, IFTTT will just give you an error. If you want to use IFTTT to syndicate stuff other than Empower Network RSS feeds, Facebook should accept it, but the main focus of this blog is syndicating your Empower Network blog.
3. Once you have accounts set up for the sites listed above, go to your Empower Network blog and then open a new browser window and go to IFTTT and log in to your account. It should open up to a page called the dashboard. Find the button that says “Create a Recipe” and click it.
4. It brings up a new page with the word “THIS” highlighted. Click on it and this it will bring up a list of “trigger channels.” Click on the icon labelled “Feed” (orange icon third one over in the third row). This gives two options. Click the one on the left (New feed item).
5. The next step is to tell IFTTT the URL of the RSS feed it needs to monitor. This can be obtained by going back to the browser window with your Empower Network blog. Find the icon on the right side of the menu bar that says “Subscribe to Link” and right-click on it to bring up a menu box. Click on the option that says “Copy Link” or something similar. The exact wording will vary depending on what browser you use but it should be easy to figure out the correct one. Go back to IFTTT and then paste the URL you just copied. My URL is /patrickray/feed/?id=patrickray. Obviously yours will have your Empower Network user name instead of mine. Once you are satisfied the correct URL is entered into IFTTT, click on “Create Trigger.”
6. The next step is to create an action for that trigger. Continue by clicking “THAT”, which brings up a list of “action channels.” Click on any one of the channels associated with the social media sites listed above. The first time you use a particular action channel, IFTTT will prompt you to activate that channel. Basically this asks for your login credentials for that site, which IFTTT needs since it will be posting on your behalf. Once you activate a channel, you can select an action for that channel. The specific options for each channel will vary based on what type of website it is, but you will want to select an option such as “post message” or “post bookmark.” When given the option of posting a “public” or “private” bookmark, always opt for “public.”
7. The next step allows you to customize your post if you want to. This is optional and I just accept the default option by clicking “Create Action.”
8. The last step allows you to add a brief description of the recipe. This is for your own information and is optional. The last thing you need to do is click “Create Recipe” and then you are done. The next time you make an Empower Network blog post, a link to it will automatically be syndicated to the site you just made the recipe for.
9. You are not done yet, though. You need to repeat this process for each of the other sites you want to syndicate to. I realize this is a lot of work upfront, but you only need to do this once for each site you syndicate to.
Syndicating your Empower Network blog has two main benefits: First, the more places it is posted, the more people are likely to click the link and go to your blog post. More importantly though it what it will do for your search engine results. Instead of Google seeing your blog URL in one location, it will see it in multiple locations, all linking back to your blog, making it more relevant.
After doing this, you are still not done with syndicating your Empower Network Blog. My next post will discuss how to get other people to help you out by syndicating your Empower network blog for you. Click here for more on syndicating your Empower Network blog.
