Kurb music promotions bonus level power up: blogging

by Matt @ Kurb on March 13, 2008

Okay storming on with my blogs, coming round the bend . . .

Blogs I’m working on now coming up are going to be dealing with what I’ve been up to with a little bit of down time looking at:

Squidoo

RSS
ilike / garage band

Reverb nation
last.fm
cool blogs

The internet (obviously)
and the possibility of kurb offering contracts as a label

Things are a little bit hairy but I’ve been aware Ive needed to do this kind of “visibility” or “accessability” maintenance for awhile.

And for another thing I’m going to have to sort my posts out – if I’m going to be serious about using my blog to build a bigger audience, I’m going to have to get a proper design and no more unfinished sentences. No more hairy bits of code bursting out the seams. No more rambling posts lurching all over the place.

BUT LETS TALK ABOUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

ALL THAT CONTENT.

IN 6 MONTHS TIME VERY FEW PEOPLE WILL READ THESE ARTICLES BUT ALL THOSE KEYWORDS ARE JUST SITTING THERE, LURKING, WHISPERING IN GOOGLE’S EARS . . .

 

“Kurb . . . Kurb . . . Kuuuuuuurrrbbbbbb”

thats why I use the words “promotion” and “music” and “online” so often because when you ask google for “online music promotion” in New zealand, guess who you’re going to get? So thats why you need to use words people want like “hip hop” “hardcore” “reggae” “indie” lots and lots!!!! On your page in your blogs. Don’t refer to your self  as “The Somebodies”.

Always say “New Zealand indie band the somebodies” so when somebody types in “New Zeland Indie” into google  . . . 

people, I am smashing it on google right now. For massively competitive terms like “online promotion” and “internet marketing” in NZ I’m leaving some of the SEO experts in the dust!

LETS GET ON WITH IT!

 KURB PROMOTIONS IS NOW ON RSS!!!

Press the button . . . Get Kurb blog posts direct!!!!

Subscribe in a reader

RSS is “really simple syndication”

what does that mean? It means your favourite websites come to you.

It’s amazing. Ever since I got put onto the thing by Dubber at new music strategies, I almost agree with him it is the best thing since email.

Thing 15: RSS

Blogging and RSS go hand in hand. These are the habits of web 2.0. You don’t need to look for information when trusted sources have been given permission to bring it to you.

So when you click the button to get the kurb RSS feed from my blog, you can either add it to your existing reader if you know what you’re doing, or you can take this opportunity to update yourself on some really awesome technology, just like when you got your first email account!!!

 

I’d sign up for the google reader, I use it and its recommended, might have something to do with google’s ubiquity, I dunno. A google home page is also cool, I love my Igoogle, but for now a reader is probably all you need.

once your reader set up, all you have to do is enter your favourite websites and the reader will automatically feed them into the system so you’re alerted everytime theres something new on that site.

FROM NOW, THIS IS A MAJOR TECHNIQUE FOR MAINTAINING YOUR CORE FANBASE THROUGH YOUR BLOG.
 

NEWSFLASH:

I’m going to be talking about heaps of sites I’m using now!

Nothings ever going to be as big as Myspace was. But you gotta stay on the ball!!!

 

Squidoo

RSS
ilike / garage band

Reverb nation
last.fm

But the most important thing I wanted to say now is that is one old site you should know about

 http://www.mp3.com.auThe Australian mp3 site, is providing really heavy google goodness!!! My page on mp3.com.au is a Page Rank 5!!!! That’s the highest ranking page in my whole network!!!! It usually takes a fair amount of work over years to get to PR5. Make sure you get on www.mp3.com.au and load that sucker up with all your links!!!

More blogs coming sooon!!!!!
