Haydn Shaughnessy over at Forbes has a list of the Top 50 Social Media Power Influencers. Immediately as a Internet Marketer I went through the list and clicked on each person to visit their site and I looked for posts on subjects that correlate with my site and interests. I found that just about every single one of them has something that you can add some valuable information to and drop a link to you social profile or to your site.
Some of the sites you have to create an account on, while this is time consuming it's for the better. Creating profiles allows me to build my brand and reputation as I can explain my profession and promote my services. I can also drop a link back to my site other other Social Content to get more followers and ultimately more targeted traffic.
This list is interesting and can have huge potential to increase visitors and followers because they all have huge followings and receive massive amounts of traffic to their respective sites. All you have to do is find a correlating topic and your in business!
Haydn says he will continue to update the list, so keep an eye on that article as new marketing opportunities will become available.

You can then take some of those keywords and put them in your:
Meta Tags, Head, Body and Footer to finish your keyword optimization for that page.
I then made a categories and keyword text description bolding the main keyword or keyphrase for that page and used in the URL towards the bottom of the body section.
Next I took those keywords and made backlinks from blogs,forums and Social Networks and started a mini link building strategy I always use.
If you have a product or service you need conversions on, then I would suggest putting "Buy Now" in the Link URL or in the Code In Context and if you have a Local Business put in a map to your store location using Google Maps.
In closing; webmaster tools has allot of features you can use to properly optimize using their tools, its just a matter of taking those tools and further analyzing their results for better analytics which in return helps you to better optimize each page for higher organic listings in the SERP'S.

I just added Pinterest to my site as you can see by the icons located to the right and upper left above and below the navigation. Pinterest is growing rapidly and in order to join you have to have an invite by another member or be put on the waiting list.
Pinterest is a Pin-board that lets you share pictures and you can categorize them based on interests as you can make up boards and describe each picture. Members of pinterest can follow you like any other social network based on your interest.
If you are a internet marketer and your site or the site your promoting has allot of graphics on it for example lets say charts then clearly you can see the reasons why you can use Pinterest to your advantage in generating targeted traffic from users that like your same interests and click through to find out more info.
Make your Pins descriptive, engage your readers and hopefully they will click through to find out more. I just started using Pinterest, even though you may not have many followers you can still generate traffic from other users with your same interest.
I have revamped our Link Building Service page.
The Manual Link Building Service takes a while and can take up to 1 month to complete depending on how many links you may need or want. You want your links to be built over time and seem natural. It takes time to request link exchanges or to purchase one way links to your site. When manually building links in Forums and Blogs, you need your code in context to be descriptive, informative and correlating to the site your linking too.
Finding pages with a good Page Rank that has allot of traffic does take time but is worth it, you know the site has been on the internet for a while and your links should stay there for lifetime. This type of manual service is good for building your brand and generating long term traffic and revenue.

GOMO also gives you a PDF report on your site that gives a little further in depth analysis. They also give some extra tips and tricks on making your site more mobile friendly and how to market it effectively. There are some resources to help you build a mobile site as well or have a agency do it for your for a specific price and timeline.
This is a useful tool. If you need your site mobilized it's good to have the #1 search engine analyze it for you using their requirements. If you want to know more about GOMO here is an excerpt from their site:

What is Correlated Linking?
Correlated Linking is when you have websites or Web pages, Forums, Blogs etc. that have the same subject, or topic linking to each other.
What are the benefits of Correlated linking?
Correlated Linking has a few benefits that can determine how well that particular page or site ranks in the major Search engines on the SERP'S. Correlated Linking gives Authority, Authority is determined by Page Rank as many links point to that site or page and it lets the search engines know that the pages that are linked has to do with the same topic, therefore it must be of some importance
Page Rank can also be increased by Correlated Linking. When you have pages or sites that have authority linking to your site or page they can pass some of that Page Rank onto your page.
Where are good places to place Correlating Links?
First you want to start off by linking the pages within your site that has to do with the same subject. Make your links with the proper keywords, having the same keywords that are in the title or address of the page your are linking to is the best correlating links.
Second I would create a few blogs or find some blogs on the same subject and create links back to your pages or site. Forums are another good source as well as Social Networks. Remember when creating your backlinks to not Spam the blogs or Forums, this will surely get you banned, usually when you create a profile it allows you to add a signature, input your link there.
Bookmarking sites like Delicious and Google Bookmarks are good places and don't forget to make the bookmark's public so they can be indexed. You might want to think about answering a few questions on Yahoo answers and link back to what your referencing.
This is the basics of Correlated linking, I'm sure there are many more ways to do it, as many Internet Marketers like myself are always finding new ways of link building. hope you enjoyed the Article.
