How To Use Disqus For Blog Comments #Blogging #Tips

By  

This is a guest post by Spencer Kimball about Disqus. I hope you will collaborate on the List.ly lists we have embedded below and give us a tip and an alternative to Disqus if you have one. Thank you
Michael

Disqus

Information on the Disqus site explains it as a a networked community platform, a web-wide community network, connecting millions of global users to your website or small blog. When you install the Disqus widget, registered users become part of the tracking system across different sites, even when they are not logged in, sites that use the Disqus commenting system. According to the Wikipedia article on Disqus, the widget acts in a similar fashion web bug which tracks a user’s activities(1).

The Disqus for blog comments hosting service is a much utilized service for websites and online communities, and Disqus brags the number of users is currently “more than 2.5 million and counting,” and there is a strong likelihood it is already on your favorite sites.

The advantages Disqus offers is the claim it will drive more participation and engagement with moderation tools to have some degree of control what is posted on your blog. Plus Disqus is a tool some use to find people with similar interests in order to build and grow and online community. Disqus offers the perk to “Follow other people who share your passions. Complete your profile so others can follow you back.”

Disqus offers several trade-offs for increased publicity and exposure. If you want privacy and do not want to have a publicly viewable profile which publishes your entire history of comments on Disqus network sites then this would not be a good tool for you to use. Also, information you provide, referred to by Disqus as “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” is actually not so private as the statement claims, as your profile page will show your entire history on Disqus sites, including posting, and will possibly be available to anyone who might search for it.

If you are comfortable with the fact Disqus does not give users control over who follows them nor have the ability to block unwanted followers, then it may be worth a look if you are willing to build a more integrated online presence. Besides social network integration some of the other features Disqus also offers include email notifications, mobile commenting and even analytics.

      Your Hashtagging Strategy On TSU. Poll Results #TSU #TSUNation

      By  

      As our TSU streams get busier and busier with more and more people joining we need to be more strategic to get our posts seen. Very like what happened with Instagram. TSU now has well over 2 million users and is growing fast. many people now have 5000 friends. Your posts will be seen less and less in the streams of your connections.
      Hashtags were not so popular in the early days of Instragram but they sure are now. I asked members of our Facebook group about TSU what their hashtagging strategy on TSU was. It was interesting to see how few were hashtagging.

      You are allowed 10 hashtags in each post but can also promote your posts and
      posts that you share by adding hashtags in the comments. The benefits of this are getting targeted views on your posts and this will lead to targeted friends and followers.

      You will probably know if your hashtags are working if you get a consistent number of people liking or commenting on your posts who neither your friend nor follow you.

      hashtags

      Some useful types of hashtags might be

       

      • The country you are from or where the photo is from
      • The topic of a photo or post
      • The name of a photographer
      • The name of the author of an article
      • Blog Post, Video, Photo etc
      • Your own personal hashtag if you have one

      Hashtagging_Poll

      For some reason I have been unable to imbed the poll. So please go to this link here to check it out! https://www.facebook.com/groups/759107030827042/permalink/792289600842118/?qa_ref=qd

      hashtags beethoven

      Here are 2 great tips from Karen Duryea
      When I run out of shares I use the hashtag #bcc to remind myself to come back to it later. I use generic hashtags like #tsunation on generic posts and more specific hashtags like #poetry on my #poems.

      I also will go back to some of my favorite older posts and leave hashtags in the comments so it gets bumped up. Breathe some life into those things you posted a month or more ago.

      What are your thoughts about all this? Do you have some good examples?

      The Web Tools Wiki continues to expand as new people with different skills and energies join as contributors. This is extremely exciting. Something that started as a small reference corner in The 7 pillars Book is now going multi media. Deborah Anderson has inspired the launch of Web Tools TV. Deborah is an experienced Google Hangout interviewer and video producer and like many of us keenly interested in finding and teaching friends about the latest useful online tools.

      web-design-tools.jpg 2015

      From Sunday 11 January at 8pm Eastern time Deborah and others will begin Web Tools TV shows. These will initially be live Google Hangouts but there will also be recorded interviews with founders of tools and tech bloggers. The link to watch and ask questions during the first show is here. The first show will be a 20 minute interview with me about what the Web Tools Wiki and Web Tools TV offer you offers you followed by a few minutes of your questions.
      https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/csl2656cchqhqe4em1t2727i4jc

      The next show will be on Wednesday 14 January and will be a panel discussion about 5 essential tools for 2015. The tools are being decided on right now by a poll in our #ToolsChat Facebook group. Click through to participate yourself!

      The link for this show is here
      https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cbt8v7e5solfq97otbb9hdagano

      The aim is to have a show several times a day so that a constant flow of great information is constantly being presented. Most of the shows will be able to be simply listenned to as well while you are working online so I hope you take advantage of it. We have over 2000 pages of tools in the Web Tools Wiki now so there are a lot of tools to cover.

      If you want to interview someone or be interviewed yourself on Web Tools TV please let me know and we will arrange it.

      How top brands used Twitter in 2014 an #Infographic by @crowdriff

      By  

      2014 was the year of data and lots of it. A whole new level of analytics was presented to us and data miners were the most sought after profession by headhunters on Linked In.

      User driven content to market brands was also a big buzz. What brands engaged the best on social. Dan Holowack and the guys at Riffle made this fantastic infographic which shows what the top brands did and what tools they used.

      Happy New Year! What did you personally see emerging as trends this year?

      My learning from Day 1 of the #NetpreneurSummit in Tokyo #InternetMarketing

      By  

      This weekend I am attending an internet marketing summit with a diverse and talented group of internet marketers from all over the world. We have people here from over 4 countries. I want to pass on a little of what I have learned so far and will write another post tomorrow too. This will all be very valuable information for you I think.

      I got even more inspired than ever before that a living and a very good one can be made from your bedroom or from anywhere you are in the world. Find something you love an monetize it. The geek is the new cool.

      Yesterday on Day 1 the first speaker was Nik Halik and he taught us about how to best leverage the wealth we are creating. Nik is a serial entrepeneur who has created a lot of wealth at a relatively young age and most importantly has kept it AND used it to have a fun and exciting life. Nik taught us about the seasonal cycles of investing and how they continually repeat. For example a strong rally on Wall St like we have seen in the past few years is traditionally followed by a 3 year rise in house prices. So now is a good time to buy some and 2017 is good time to sell them. Nik also emphasised the need to use the internet via your phone to be continually connected and that you can run several businesses from your phone. He urged us to set lofty goals then become an assassin of them.

      A good balance of passive and active income and careful asset management is key otherwise wealth can slip through our fingers as many of have found!

      Next up was one of the organizers of Netpreneur Summit James Brown. James has been a Netpreneur for 16 years and emphasised capitalizing on trends and also the importance of educating yourself even if you have to pay a lot to do so.

      James qustions

      5 questions from James Brown.

      In the afternoon Kevin Riley talked about creating information products especially the power of asking repeated questions to reinforce learning. Kevin has given me a great idea for the Web Tools Wiki. We will create some tests about some of the more popular online tools such as Skype and Gmail and find out how much you actually know about them. In this way we can teach you more so that you can maximize your use of them.

      Dave Taylor then taught us about Google Ad words and running an online business in an extremely organized way. Dave is a true expert and has the campaigns for all his 250 or so customers highly planned out. It was a huge learning experience to see just how organised you can be and also how becoming a real niche expert and putting in a few years hard work can create a great regular income online.

      I hope you are getting inspired about becoming a netpreneur. These are people from a wide variety of backgrounds who are not necessarily so tech savvy. They simply focus on their strengths and find something they like doing.

      I hope you will check out more about the event and all the great presenters at http://netpeneursummit.com

      Today is #EndSlavery day with @NoMoreSlaves and @UNgiftraffick

      By  

      It is hard to imagine being a slave but 168,000,000 people are. Mostly children. This is a guest post by a special person to me, Michael Junghans. A guy who has devoted himself to ending slavery and who is embracing the use of social media to achieve this. Today is End Slavery day. I urge you to check out the links to Michael`s social media accounts below and give what support you can to this great cause. Any kind of awareness that we can raise will help.

      endslavery day 2014

      ……………………………………………………………………………………………………

      I am Michael Junghans, I am a social worker, networker and social media advisor at UN.GIFT Vienna. United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking.

      My biggest aim is to raise awareness about modern day slavery, human trafficking and forced labour.

      I believe more people around the world should know about the millions of women, men and children enslaved today. Throughout the entire history of mankind there have never been as many slaves as today.

      According to the White House, every 30 seconds someone becomes a victim of human trafficking.

      Every 30 seconds!

      Yes! By the time you have finished reading this post, another person will have fallen prey to the criminals!

      What we can do against this crime?

      → Every action e.g.: a “like”, a “share”, a “+” will support our fight

      → Tackling the the reason why this crime happens: e.g. Poverty, missing education;

      → Sharing knowledge and informations is a powerful tool. Participate!

      → Be sponsors for ideas and media campaigns.

      → Build bridges with cultural events.

      → We should be aware that the victims are not the offenders.

      → We should support businesses that act responsibly in their field of business.

      You are invited to take part in positive change. :-)

      Why collaborative content? feat. @nealschaffer & @nickkellet #ContentMarketing

      By  

      If you are looking for a way to produce more interesting and compelling content why not get into some collaboration? Your content can be crowdsourced! Recently Neal Schaffer asked me and 10 other social media CEO`s to give our social media predictions for 2015. It was great to see the other views on a topic all on the same page and I am sure the post was widely shared by all of us to our various audiences. A win – win – win don`t you think? This is not a new idea but it is still greatly underused. Neal has been a real innovator in this approach and even his Maximize Social Business blog is a collaborative blog with several great contributors posting regularly.

      keep-calm-and-collaborate-85

      I am also beginning to feel the power of embedding List.ly lists in blog posts and seeing tips and alternatives being added to the lists and being voted up and down. What is especially cool about these lists is that each tip becomes a unique URL and can be tweeted from the embedded list and when people open it they are redirected back to your blog rather than to List.ly. A great thing is that they do not even have to be lists that you have created yet you can still get people coming to your site by promoting them. try it out on this list if you wish!

      Ten Top Tips to Cultivate Great Lists

      Source: http://blog.list.ly/2013/03/13/ten-top-tips-to-cultivate-great-lists/

        Follow List
        Embed List
        Share
      1. 1  Make it Useful

        Make it Useful

        It sounds obvious, but it still needs saying. Your list needs to bring people value. Give value, in return for their attention. A great list needs to be useful to the reader.

        Great lists also often represent a spread of opinion. They are very rarely solely about you and become more interesting the less they focus on you.

        Great lists solve problems and are worth coming back to. So think about utility before you create each list.

        Great lists also often represent a spread of opinion. They are very rarely solely about you and probably they become more interesting the less they focus on you.

        Great lists solve problems. Great lists are worth coming back to. So think about utility before you create each list.

      2. 2  Not About You

        Not About You

        This is hard for many people to grasp, but don't make your lists about you. Great lists solve problems for the people who you serve.
        Don't think about what you do, think about what people do with what you do.
        How can you make that process simpler? How can you add value? How can you share your experience and learning?

      3. 3  Make it Spreadable

        Make it Spreadable

        Ask yourself, will someone else want to embed my list on their blog? Sharing is great, but embedding has a much longer term impact on findability.

        Not all lists need to be embed-worthy, but if you want your list to spread and generate brand/cause awareness for you, you need to make sure other people want to play a role and can see the utility in embedding your list in their blog. They need to feel their community will benefit.

        Leave them room. Give them credit. Let them help.

        When people do embed a list it's usually because they can add their own perspective on the content of the list. They are also more likely to want to embed the list if they are included on the list. They obviously think the list is valuable and worth sharing, but being able to add their own opinion in their blog post is essential.

        Make lists that are worth commenting on. Create a list that takes a stance or that expresses an opinion. Polarizing your audience is valuable.

        People who connect emotionally to your ideas will want to help, share and spread your lists by embedding them.

      4. 4  Choose Evergreen & Ever Changing Topics

        Choose Evergreen & Ever Changing Topics

        A great list will always be current and relevant, but also always be changing. Those changes don't need to be happening daily, just as needed. Some lists are directories of links, some lists contain tips and advice, just like this one.

        Great lists are worth bookmarking, worth following, worth coming back to.

        When people contribute they connect emotionally to the list and that makes them want to come back to see what's new. Letting a list stagnate is a sure way of losing future participation.

        A great list pops into your head when you discover some new gem and you think to yourself, I should add that to that great list.

        Good lists become great lists if they evolve over time.

      5. 5  Fun & Emotional

        Fun & Emotional

        Sometimes we just forget that a good list is just fun. Can you make people smile? We all need moments of joy, we all need moments to reflect. Lists are a great way to deliver this experience.

        Skimable content lets people find the fun they need.

        Sometimes you just need to collect a list of fun quotes, cat photos, silly videos or some emotionally uplifting Ted talks.

        Great lists connect with your audience, so how can you find the humour and the emotional angle.
        Sometimes you just should run a caption contest. Let other people bring the humour.

        Sometimes you just need to leave people room to express their thoughts and feelings.

        Great lists should also contain surprises. Don't just include all the obvious ideas. Be willing to package some surprise content in your list. Surprise is utility.

      6. 6  Embedded

        Embedded

        There are many reasons why embedding enhances your list.

        First is demonstrates that lists can be embedded, so if you embed your lists, others may do so too.

        Embedding your list in your blog also gives you the chance to provide context and set expectations. You can always do that better in a blog post. Embedding a list puts the content in front or your blog audience, which will be a different audience than the people who discover your list via Listly.

        Embedding your list also means your list gets seen more. Embedded lists get featured on Listly's home page every time your list is viewed, so if it's well named you can get more list views.

      7. 7  Leave Gaps

        Leave Gaps

        This is the hardest trick to master. As a writer you want to complete your list and be useful. At the same time you want to ask for help. Those two goals conflict.

        If you complete your list, you leave people no room to contribute. If you ask for suggestions to a rich and complete list, the number of people who know your topic well and who can contribute is dramatically reduced.

        Leave off some obvious stuff, purely to entice and tease out participation.

        So leave gaps. Those gaps will get filled over time, but by that point you have a list with multiple contributors and people feel more willing to participate when they see content that has been sourced from many people.

        Social proof is a powerful tool. When you begin a list with no social proof and no contributors, the best tip is to leave gaps.

      8. 8  Encourage Social Participation

        Encourage Social Participation

        To make a great list you really need multiple people to participate. You can make a list by yourself, but in the age of participation, if you involve other people, then more people will want to get involved.

        Don't make a list then expect people to participate. Involve people in the making of the list. This list is not a good example of that, but that's because this list is about sharing my accumulated learning.

        Getting the first 5-10 people to participate is the hardest. Often you have to reach out and ask in person, but once a list is clearly sourced from multiple people, then more people become willing to follow, vote and contribute.

        The people who follow and who help curate a list are also a big part of the value of a list.

        Communities form around shared interests. Only people who love the list topic will find it interesting. People share what they care about, and in so doing, tip search engines as to its significance. Sharing makes stuff more findable, so you want to make a list that is worth sharing.

      9. 9  Set Expectations

        Set Expectations

        Great lists tell people what to expect. Great lists lay down expectation of that you want from your audience.

        Do you want votes, comments or contributions. Often it's wisest to focus on one.

        You can be clear on your list, but you can also be specific in your blog post and give people the rules of engagement. Don't be afraid to be specific. People like simple specific asks. Then people can ask them a simple question - can I help. Not everyone will and you shouldn't want everyone.

        You need to focus on the early adopter. Focus on the first people to contribute. IF they join its much more likely others will follow. Keep it simple. Be obvious.

        If you want people do embed your list ask and give them instructions. Don't assume people know what Listly is. Don't assume people know that they can contribute.

      10. 10  Be Welcoming / Be Findable

        Be Welcoming / Be Findable

        The name of your list matters. The name of your blog post matters. Make sure your including all the information that will help people find your list.

        A headline image is a great way to make your list welcoming, it also helps your get found via image searches.

        Lists with great headline images stand out. Keep them simple, visual and welcoming. Ask yourself would I embed this list, make sure your headline image is not off-putting. Make sure it looks professional.

        Headline images and cover pages are simply the norm today. Setting a visual stage is important with setting initial expectations.

      Nick Kellet the founder of List.ly is a real thought leader about collaborative content and I urge you to take a quick look through his slideshare presentation on the way things are moving.

      As Nick says in the slideshare “The age of collaboration is here”.

      scope-is-the-new-poem-making-sense-of-the-emerging-digital-media-landscape-19-1024

      Another way I am seeing collaboration accelerate my social presence is with collaborative Pinterest boards. These too can be embedded in various display formats so for example if you are having a photo contest you could display all the entries as an embed in your site.

      The 7 pillars Book is a live collaborative book and I have gathered together several authors who are specialists about various social networks or are experts in a particular aspect of online presence to contribute chapters and keep updating them

      Each page of the Web Tools Wiki aims to utilise any kind of collaboration tool to maximise the fact that a number of us are collaborating to make the content and sharing in the profits from the business. As a wiki no content is “attributed” to any one person. I am really excited about how this is developing. If you would like to be a part of this please let me know.

      collaborative-Content-Creation-Process

      Another great way that I am producing crowdsourced, collaborative content is with Unlimited You Education. This map is public and many people have the ability to edit it and add thoughts and questions. Soon we will have the ability to embed these maps into other sites as well. You can see how we are using the collaborative content sourced for the Web Tools Wiki to create multiple streams of income for the group. Each of the branches in the map can be linked to documents or photos or websites where even further collaboration can take place.

      Money_web_tools_wiki

      https://leaders.unlimitedyoueducation.com/mindmap/autoopen?at=fc433c302b5bfd234c98a951514204371ecea1d1ebf8be5352cb6f43ea167c0bad31dfcb4cee6887&with=452

      You can get a UYE account here http://myuye.com/mqt

      As with List.ly and Pinterest and Slideshare, Unlimited You Education is also a social network so when you start embedding content from these places in your own site you also start opening up more and more possibility of content producing collaboration with their many active members. Not just people that you have brought to your own site. This is an extremely powerful way of producing content and will grow and grow in popularity with more and more new tools being built to facilitate it.

      I would love to hear from you with any thoughts or ideas you have about other ways to make this happen.

      Thank you so much

      Some thoughts about your posting strategies on TSU

      By  

      Is it like Instagram? Well kind of. TSU continues to grow and looks like becoming a more and more useful social network to be on. I am going to toss out some thoughts about posting strategies for you. These will all be incorporated soon in Chapter 3 on “content” in the book I am writing called “The 7 pillars of Your TSU Success”.

      As with anything new and different TSU offers up a myriad of new possibilities to us. Ultimately your success on TSU will depend on the quality of your posts. We can post 32 times a day I think and 8 of these can be shares. So strategy number 1 is to make sure that you you use these and use them as well as you can. Keep TSU open while you are online and duck in every few minutes and create a couple of posts and share something. Hopefully you will be able to use the majority of your allocated opportunities. Ideally we would spread them out across 24 hours but until TSU opens an API and we can schedule this is not possible you just have to make the best of it that you can. There is almost no point in posting on TSU while America is asleep. Better to save your 32 posts or whatever it is for later in the day if you are able to.

      TSU is unique in that you can open up a link and share the post with 2 photographs this seems to have a big impact. My wife Yoriko had a lot of success with this one last week and I have also been doing well with it. Getting a lot of shares and a lot of links opened. All good! You will also see how you can highlight a title by clicking ” Add title”. You just have to add a link in your description then wait for it to open. Then you can add an image to your post. 25 shares on this one and a lot of click throughs on the link.

      This is the link to the original post so that you can see how it was done first hand https://www.tsu.co/post/10995074

      As far as what types of content to post in addition to links and photos you can posts Gifs. You need to copy the image URL then you can post it in TSU and it will move. Sometimes people need to hover over them to make them move, sometimes just waiting will do the trick.

      Thank you Adam Jones for this. Thank Adam yourself at ttp://tsu.co/atheistadam

      You can post written updates but very few people are. Unlike Google+ and Facebook you cannot edit posts so make sure you get them right first time.

      You can use 10 hashtags a post so you may as well! Experiment with which ones work best for you. Hashtags are a great way of getting your content found on Instagram so a similar strategy should pay the same dividends on TSU. I am using Buffer to tweet out TSU posts later. I am also pinning many posts from both my own feed plus those of my TSU family. Remember that TSU is a team sport!

      Robby Ball is enjoying TSU and doing very well on it. Many of his posts are getting around 100 reactions each. Here are his cross posting tips…

      “I have a blog with photo, and it automatically gets posted to G+, I grab the link and post it to TSU, and it auto posts to Facebook and Twitter…. I am not working any harder than i did without TSU and the post gets everywhere it needs to. Nothing special, but it’s a routine I was already doing w/o TSU but I get some credit…

      One other nice thing about taking a G+ link and posting it on TSU, when it shows up on Facebook, it not only looks nice, and very similar to the look it had on G+, but it also has the link back to both TSU and G+ on the Facebook post.”

      Robby is defintely someone to learn from as he already has over 2000 friends plus around 5000 followers on TSU.

      As with Instagram beautiful photographs plus inspirational quotes are popular on TSU. Selfies are becoming more prevalent of course as well. You will find what works best for you.

      This is how a TSU post embeds on Facebook. Very nicely I think. You can see that as Robby has said above, the original link and the TSU link both appear in the Facebook post. I am sharing most of my TSU posts to my Facebook business page and am tweeting about one third of my posts. You can use 10 hashtags a post so you may as well! Experiment with which ones work best for you. Hashtags are a great way of getting your content found on Instagram so a similar strategy should pay the same dividends on TSU. I am using Buffer to tweet out TSU posts later. I am also pinning many posts from both my own feed plus those of my TSU family. Remember that TSU is a team sport!

      If you want to schedule your TSU posts and send them out later you can get the link from your TSU analytics here.

      WEB_Tools_WIKi_TSU_analytics

      Just click on “View Post”. As you can see from these analytics I am getting a healthy number of views (around 500-700) on each post even from a “business page” which does not have many friends or followers at http://tsu.co/webtoolswiki

      This kind of level of exposure is unthinkable on Facebook without paying several hundred dollars. So what are you waiting for? Dive into TSU !! It works and it is fresh and new and fun. It may just be the next new thing. They have raised $7 million in funding so we can expect many improvements down the line. Right now TSU has done little to integrate itself with other social media platforms but when it does it will become more and more important to have built a large following there. At least protect your username!!

      Join by invitation at http://tsu.co/webtoolswiki and check it out for yourself.

      If you are already on TSU what is working best for you?

      9 ways Tsu is way better than FB for causes and charities

      By  

      Tsu is taking social media to a whole new place. Am beating myself up for not joining 3 or 4 days earlier but am still doing OK and most of all am learning so much. Charities and causes especially can benefit so much from embracing Tsu. Just off the top of my head I can think of 9 clear ways that it is so much better than Facebook for them.

      1.Tsu has no algorithm like the Facebook EdgeRank. Same system as Instagram. Posts by your cause will get seen by your friends and followers. Unlike on Facebook where you have to pay big bucks to get even a few to see anything. Right now people are friending back and following back on Tsu as few have yet hit their 5000 maximum friends

      2. You can clearly see who your most active supporters are by looking at your children and descendants and can easily interact with them and support them back

      3. Your supporters can transfer you funds quickly and easily on Tsu. Just use the big green “Transfer funds” button

      Tsu For a cause writing

      4. Tsu is growing fast and taking away a lot of “market share” from Facebook. as a relatively early adopter as a cause in your niche area you will gain a lot of support on Tsu

      5. Your supporters can earn you money by sharing your Tsu posts

      6. Tsu gives you great up to the minute analytics of how popular your posts are

      7. Tsu cares! Tsu has placed a great deal of emphasis on being “cause friendly”. It is highly likely that more and more features will be rolled out making it better and better to be on Tsu.

      8. On Tsu you can comment and click like as a page. This used to be the case on Facebook but they took the option away about 2 years ago, presumably to create a greater incentive to make pages pay them money. You can also message supporters directly into their inbox as a page

      9. On Tsu you can post simultaneously on to Tsu and on to Facebook and Twitter. It also allows you to embellish a post with 2 photos at once giving you double impact

      10. ? (Please make a suggestion in the comments I am sure you can think of one)

      Michael

      PS Come and help me make some noise about Fracking on Tsu at http://tsu.co/frackingnews. We are just getting started but already seeing far far better results than on the Facebook page we have been working hard out at for over 3 years. We have a strong and loyal following there the only problem being that nobody ever sees what we post.

      33 simple ways you can get paid by the Web Tools Wiki

      By  

      During our beta testing for the Web Tools Wiki I have been asked what kind of actions will be useful to help take the Wiki forwards. I have made a list of 33. I will add to this list from time to time but in the meantime all these will all be extremely useful to us. We now have over 50 people actively engaged as we search for 250 more over the next few weeks who will form our core team and be given invites to get 2700 more involved during January.

      TSU has been called Web 4.0 because people are getting paid to do social media. This is Web 5.0 sharing content that actually all has a meaning and teaches people to use the internet better and getting paid to do it. The content will also actually be your content a lot of the time from your contributions and those of your friends. The difference is that we will do this in a relatively organised way as a team and all benefit. We all have skills and experience that in many cases is going unrewarded right now.

      Marine

      I hope that you will also take the time to read my latest posts about how the Web Tools Wiki works at michaelqtodd.com. I have written about the downline sytem and the various bonuses available, the overall vision and how we will make money together by paying at least 90% of gross revenue to members, the HipChat collaboration tool, how we will integrate with Unlimited You Education. We also have an Indigogo campaign running which has 4 perks.

      1. Begin building your downline with the invites you are awarded. You will need a UYE account to do this please join at http://myuye.com/mqt and make both me and your immediate upline contributors to your map. Randy Hilarski is building his downline like this

      Randy_WTW_Downline

      These maps are being made by hand for the first 300 so that we maintain duplication and quality. From early December we will also have a dedicated back office system for you to work with. This will be similar to the Tsu back office showing how you and your downline have earned money etc.

      2. Make a Value Map inside UYE so that we know what your strengths and interests are. You can make this private or public. You will learn why UYE is a vital part of our collaborative effort as you go on. One of the biggest benefits you will get as a Web tools Wiki contributor/ team member/ salesperson is constant daily upskilling and networking with like minded people. Here is an example of my value map. If you have SEO, graphic design, social media, accounting, sales, leadership skills and experience for example we need to know so that we can work together as effectively as possible. Start with a basic map then build on it when you have time.

      My__UYE_Value_Map

      3. Make a HipChat account so that we can add you to a team there. Please learn about Hip Chat here http://webtoolswiki.com/hipchat

      It was brought home to me over the weekend just how valuable being involved with The Web Tools Wiki is. When I launched our HipChat teams I found that over 50 other collaborative tools can be integrated into HipChat. I did not know most of these tools but now we have made pages about all of them and we are learning about them as a team. And teaching others about them as we do. I have blogged about this great experience. We have created several different teams or “rooms” inside HipChat the first one to visit is the Welcome Room at http://www.hipchat.com/gdbZasKZ3 you should ask questions about HipChat there

      4. Make a List.ly account. We have around 3000 lists already embedded in Web Tools Wiki pages. On all these lists we need tips and alternatives added. Please also Facebook “Like”, or inside List.ly itself favorite and follow our various lists. Please follow people in List.ly it is a social network. Please share our lists and any of the tips or alternatives on social media. Please learn about List.ly here http://webtoolswiki.com/list.ly (Are you starting to understand how useful our site is?). Add the List.ly extension to your browser.

      5. Make an Empire Avenue account and begin running missions to pages in the Web Tools Wiki or social media posts about our content. learn about Empire Avenue here if you do not already understand it http://michaelqtodd.com/7eapillars

      6. Consider what Web Tools Wiki teams you may be interested in joining and let me or Rhea Lou Bisnar know so that we can allocate you to a team. Rhea is in charge of team co-ordination right now. You can join as many teams as you like and you will be paid for your activity as a member of each of these teams. Right now we have around 30 teams but these will be increased over the next few weeks. Please remember that we are in beta testing and any ideas or input you have will be highly valued.

      7. Become a contributor to our Pinterest boards at http://pinterest.com/webtoolswiki
      Then make your own “Useful Web Tools” board and begin pinning from our origin board at http://www.pinterest.com/webtoolswiki/just-our-pins/ to your both our boards and your own boards

      8. Make a Stumble Upon account and favorite all our pages

      9. Make a Scoop.it account and make one of your topics “”Useful Web Tools”. Scoop our pages and share your scoops socially. Please interact with others with similar topics inside List.ly by following them or favoriting them.

      10. Please make a Twitter account and tweet our pages. If this is not something you usually tweet about please consider making a second Twitter account with a useful tools focus. Please follow and list all those Tweeting about online tools, apps etc. You can also follow and interact with the various accounts included in the @WebToolsWiki Twitter account. I strongly recommend using Tweepi as a tool for building your Twitter accounts. Please also make an SMQueue account and request a TXT file of WebToolsWiki related tweets so that you can add them to your recurring queue.

      11. Suggest affiliate marketing possibilities to us. Joan Stewart is leading the team for this right now. Affiliate revenue will be our bread and butter and the more we can generate the faster we will succeed. Please collaborate with Joan either on her UYE Map and the Google Doc incorporated in it or simply message her with an affiliate possibility that we are not already promoting. We hope to have 500 affiliate links by the end of 2014.

      12. Like and interact with in some way on the thousands of posts on the Web Tools Wiki Facebook page. If you do not know something about a certain tool please ask in the comments either on the embedded post or on the Facebook thread at the bottom of the Web Tools Wiki page about the tool

      13. Like and interact with in some way on the thousands of posts on the Web Tools Wiki Google+ page. If you do not know something about a certain tool please ask in the comments either on the embedded post or on the Google+ thread at the bottom of the Web Tools Wiki page about the tool

      14. Share our pages to Google+ or Facebook

      15. Engage on and ask questions in either our Google+ community or our Facebook group

      16. Edit written content inside our site. If you are not already an editor please ask either me or Jaye Cider Sabri our written content team leader for editorial access to our wordpress. We are focused on providing information about thousands of tools in a simple and easy to understand way

      17. Make a Buffer account and keep it topped up with tweets from the Web Tools Wiki pages. You can also see down on the lower right on every page our recent Twitter and other social media posts. Also posts about us.

      18. Make a Hootsuite account and follow the #WebToolsWiki Hashtag as one of your “watched” streams. Share or engage with these posts

      19. Create or edit current graphics and images for our pages. Please make these about 600 X 900 for maximum visibility on Pinterest.

      20. Create You Tube “How To” videos for the various tools on our pages. Doing so will give you great exposure. Please interact with others with similar topics inside You Tube by subscribing to them or favoriting them. Please also check out our channel while you over at You Tube. Jaye Cider Sabri has made many great instruction videos so far please interact with them and share them. You Tube will be a major major part of our social media and SEO presence so any support you can give to our channel will pay off big time for all of us down the line

      21. Create Slideshare “How To” presentations for the various tools on our pages. Doing so will give you great exposure when we feature them

      22. Sell advertising or premium packages. My initial thinking is that the seller will get 50% of revenue and that their upline will get a further 40%. We have 2 packages right now. See here for a further explanation of what these packages offer

      23. Support and promote our Indiegogo fundraising campaign

      24. Support and promote us on Tsu. Make a second Tsu account with a focus on Useful Web Tools and join under us. Share our posts and use our hashtag #WebToolsWiki. Your accounts will get big support from me and others if you do this.

      25. Study Unlimited You Education courses with a view to making a short course about a particular tool that you have expertise in. These courses can be featured on our pages as well as inside UYE

      26. Add the WebToolsWiki.com to the list of sites you contribute to in your Google+ profile. This will create useful links between our site and your profile

      27. Invite friends to our team who you think may be interested in getting paid for taking one or more of the actions I have outlined above. The more active team members in your downline the more you will be paid

      28. Write a blog post about the Web Tools Wiki as Jaye Cider Sabri has done here http://www.michaelqtodd.com/webtoolswiki-contributor

      29. Write a Linked In post about The Web Tools Wiki

      30. Add a banner ad about the Web Tools Wiki to your blog or website

      33. If for some reason you cannot use Bitcoin please make a Pay Pal account. Add details of the account to the relevant branch in your UYE map. We will shortly have a back office system whereby you can track your downline and payments but in the meantime we will use UYE. can you now see how what we are doing is bound together by our UYE presence?

      Should you as a blogger, commenter or sharer be paid something?

      By  

      It has intrigued me for a long time how much people are prepared to do online for free. I have always presumed that those people had some long term monetization plan but I am beginning to learn that many do not. So many have us have built up a great deal of useful knowledge and massive networks but are pleading poverty and even worse a lack of time. Some of you are commenting in forums or Facebook groups or on blog posts and earning absolutely nothing from it. I have a strong feeling that at least some of you would like to be paid for this kind of activity so I have built a place where you can be.

      I have observed closely what has happened on Tsu in the past few weeks and have seen social media basically turned upside down. I have seen friends who I presumed were making hundreds of dollars a week from their social media activity crazily excited just to get $2 or $3 for dozens of hours work. I have created the beginning of a similar system to Tsu but with a very different kind of website. Tsu is about sharing nice photos by other people and rehashing Gifs and inspirational quotes. All worthwhile activity but we are creating something very concrete. A Wikipedia like site that is a pathway to learning about useful internet tools. We are not a review site and do not say if a tool is good or bad even if they pay us. We simply say what it is and what it does.

      I have also watched friends gather in groups and be paid for Tweeting and Facebooking and Instagramming about Verizon. Triberr blogger outreach campaigns, Viral Content Buzz and more. There are elemnts of all these collaborations in the Web Tools Wiki. I am reaching out in blog posts like this and also one to one to people who have some knowledge about the internet, a reasonable network and who want to both learn more and to make some money by doing so. So far I have managed to pay out over $35,000 to friends in the past 5 months. All they have done is to blog, share posts, comment, click like, leave tips, pin and other such simple actions. Some of them are stepping up and becoming leaders of teams in our community and being rewarded even more for that. We are creating dozens of teams and those who are already leading those teams are also being rewarded by leader`s bonuses and a share in the business as a whole.

      Paid to blog

      I have written 2 posts in the past few days outlining firstly what is what we can do for you

      http://michaelqtodd.com/webtoolswikiteam

      and then how you can begin to take part.

      The second post is about how we are compensating people

      http://michaelqtodd.com/compensation-plan

      paid blogger

      I will write another today which will set out exactly the type of actions that we will hope team members will take. You will find that all of these are things that you are already doing for free. There is also a post here from a team member who has been paid over $5000 so far just to show you what you could get in the next few months.

      http://www.michaelqtodd.com/webtoolswiki-contributor

      For those who get involved in the Web Tools Wiki team early enough and who participate just a little every day the rewards you will have gained in say a year`s time will be massive. Some of you will join in and some will not. The right people will gravitate towards the level of collaboration and team work involved in taking our site to the position of being the go to place about internet information. Those people will be heavily compensated, will make great relationships and will learn a lot about the internet. In fact i would be shocked to find that in a month`s time you are doing 3 times as much online in a day as you are now. I am constantly upskilling and getting more done and everyone on our team is too.

      You very first steps are to request entry to our public Facebook group after reading the recent posts. Yes we are aiming at total transparency with everything we are doing. The next step is to join Unlimited You Education at
      http://myuye.com/mqt

      and make a value map. A simple diagram showing off your experience and your skills and what you offer our team. If you are a possible fit you will be invited to join our beta testing group and given 2 invites to get your downline started by finding 2 more people who you think will love being part of our team.

      I am very happy to answer whatever questions you might have in the comment below. We are very much just getting started and any suggestions or insights you may have will be highly appreciated.
      Thank you for your interest in what we are doing.

      Michael
