[20:09:08] wordful: For all on Twitter, I learned last time that it’s more efficient to use TweetChat (tweetchat.com) for this #editorchat

[20:09:18] JDEbberly: I apologize to my followers as I Tweet more than usual as I enter Editorchat, for the next 85 minutes #editorchat

[20:09:23] milehighfool: Innovation is tonight’s theme. We’ll get to questions after everyone has a chance to introduce themselves. #editorchat

[20:09:35] LydiaBreakfast: So, the intro to this week is the Pew study that found writers of online content are more optimistic than their print peers. #editorchat

[20:09:52] JDEbberly: Hello! I’m JD Ebberly from N VA. I write pieces on blogging & new media #editorchat

[20:10:11] wordful: @LydiaBreakfast that seems reasonable to believe #editorchat

[20:10:17] JMegonigal: @LydiaBreakfast Amen to that! #editorchat #editorchat

[20:10:36] dawnologue: @kitchenMage What is #editorchat???

[20:10:37] jennipps: Good to see everyone tonight! πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:11:00] milehighfool: @wordful You know, you’d think so, but we’re wondering why. The implications are large. #editorchat

[20:11:02] NitaBe: nitabe, freelancewriter from South East Oklahoma #editorchat

[20:11:10] jennipps: @dawnologue Check out https://editorchat.wordpress.com #editorchat

[20:11:14] MikeLizun: Mike Lizun, Media Relations, Philly, former journ. Here to learn. #editorchat

[20:11:22] edwardboches: there is so much doom and gloom coverage and prediction about print journalism, not a surprise that online more positive #editorchat

[20:11:30] anndouglas: Love the topic! I have different experiences in different blogging environments. Will have lots to contribute. #editorchat

[20:11:35] milehighfool: @NitaBe Welcome, glad you could join us. #editorchat

[20:11:37] LydiaBreakfast: What are the necessary innovations writers and editors must make to produce profitable business models. #editorchat

[20:11:38] JDEbberly: RT @jennipps: @dawnologue Check out https://editorchat.wordpress.com #editorchat

[20:11:45] kitchenMage: @dawnologue read this: https://editorchat.wordpress.com/ Then post and read the editorchat tag for discussion. #editorchat

[20:11:54] stephauteri: p.s. to my followers. I’m participating in #editorchat tonight, so feel free to either ignore me or join! #editorchat

[20:12:58] jenwillis: I just hope the optimism for online is well-deserved. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:13:08] jennipps: @NitaBe Yay! You made it! πŸ™‚ (I was reading elsewhere & missed you come in.) #editorchat

[20:13:19] milehighfool: RT @LydiaBreakfast: What are the necessary innovations writers and editors must make to produce profitable business models. #editorchat

[20:13:24] JMegonigal: @milehighfool Could it be stress of no revenue generation? Or barrage of people constantly telling you that ur in a dying prof? #editorchat

[20:13:30] edwardboches: new outlets for content. go where audience is. create more multiplatform experiences. involve reader even more. #editorchat

[20:13:38] anndouglas: I found myself constrained by a model that didn’t work as a blogger at yahoocanada. (Rules have become less rigid.) #editorchat

[20:13:44] TMFZahrim: RT Q1: What are the necessary innovations writers and editors must make to produce profitable business models. #editorchat

[20:14:12] tweditor: If thereÒ€ℒs a journalist out there who knows how to be profitable online, theyÒ€ℒre being really discreet about it. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:14:16] JDEbberly: RT @maantren: RT @milehighfool: Are we all members of the media now? An #editorchat commentary: http://bit.ly/18McaH (Thanks again to @J …

[20:14:17] milehighfool: @JMegonigal It absolutely could. I’m sure newspaper reporters are tired of hearing it. I would be, too. #editorchat

[20:14:27] jennipps: Q1 – I think I was doing that & didn’t realize it when applying to more online markets than print, like TutorialBlog #editorchat

[20:14:32] wordful: be more personal and real, hustle and apply editorial standards — I’m referring to blogging #editorchat

[20:14:51] mobienthusiast: #editorchat is live, talk to editors and journalists, topics here: https://editorchat.wordpress.com/

[20:14:55] jimmcbee: a little tweeting, mostly cooking: Jim McBee, http://smartnewsnc.com just went live today. #editorchat

[20:16:02] milehighfool: @tweditor I’m not so sure. Salon is public and The Motley Fool is doing okay, from where I sit. #editorchat

[20:16:14] anndouglas: At first: only links to non-profits. A few grudging links to $ sites. No links to competitive sites, even if they had big scoop. #editorchat

[20:16:28] milehighfool: @anndouglas So what did you do to bust out of the constraints? #editorchat

[20:16:28] anti9to5guide: Have polls if it’s an article for a traditional news outlet (in addition to comments). They write about reader responses. #editorchat

[20:16:29] stephauteri: Q1: When it comes to profitability, maybe we need to look beyond written content for the $, & find new ways to involve readers. #editorchat

[20:16:40] TMFZahrim: All ads hardly flies unless you’re Google. Need to sell premium subscriptions or products too. #editorchat

[20:16:58] mobienthusiast: @milehighfool is hosting #editorchat tonight, thanks Tim.

[20:17:00] PDXsays: RT: LydiaBreakfastSo, intro to this week is Pew study showing online content writers are more optimistic than their print peers. #editorchat

[20:17:08] anti9to5guide: Yipes, I mean THEN write about reader responses. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:17:12] wordful: @TMFZahrim I agree with that #editorchat

[20:17:13] jennipps: RT @TMFZahrim All ads hardly flies unless you’re Google. Need to sell premium subscriptions or products too. #editorchat

[20:17:37] TMFZahrim: Corollary: content must be top notch or those subs and stuff won’t sell #editorchat

[20:17:42] milehighfool: @anti9to5guide I think that’s important, and speaks to what Bryne said last week. Keep readers in a conversation. #editorchat

[20:17:45] mariaelenaduron: Q1: Be where the people R + create a “home” for them. Variety of platforms – different audiences #editorchat

[20:17:50] AngEngland: #editorchat I’m on a very slow connection so can’t chat right now, but I just wanted to say HELLO. πŸ™‚ Freelance writer/editor here.

[20:17:50] edwardboches: need to become content generators for health care, social media platforms, and others who might pay for good, objective content #editorchat

[20:17:55] mhertz: Sorry to be late to the chat. I’m a freelance writer and editor in the San Francisco Bay Area. #editorchat

[20:19:04] wordful: we need to balance content-based revenue streams with ads, affiliate sales, subscriptions, products #editorchat

[20:19:27] PDXsays: #editorchat Topic:Should writers be content SEO experts, crafting stories searchable to gain readership? https://editorchat.wordpress.com

[20:19:30] anndouglas: Blogger placed in awk position @ this site. Blogger comp favors self-referential links. May not make for best story. #editorchat

[20:19:29] jennipps: @edwardboches Re: content generator for health care…That’s definitely an area I’m looking into that could use day job know-how #editorchat

[20:19:31] anti9to5guide: @milehighfool Yeah, I agree. At one MSM outlet I write for it’s against “legal’s” rules for me to comment back. Interesting. #editorchat

[20:19:30] TMFZahrim: Paradoxically, fishing for readers sometimes means selling out on message. Fine line to walk. #editorchat

[20:19:37] mobienthusiast: Comments at the end of articles are great for discussion, would be nice if someone weeded out inflammatory comments #editorchat

[20:20:07] anndouglas: @milehighfool Pushed the envelope. Kind of linked where I wanted to and hoped no one noticed. #editorchat

[20:20:11] jennipps: @anti9to5guide That doesn’t make sense. You’d think they’d want that interaction. #editorchat

[20:20:23] milehighfool: RT @TMFZahrim: Paradoxically, fishing for readers sometimes means selling out on message. Fine line. #editorchat

[20:20:32] edwardboches: “long format journalism matters,” marzotti but cost at least $40,000 to generate. how to quality of reader won’t pay #editorchat

[20:20:36] jennipps: @mobienthusiast And spammy comments too instead of blanket approvals. #editorchat

[20:20:38] anndouglas: @milehighfool Most of the time they haven’t edited them out….. #editorchat

[20:20:39] stephauteri: @anti9to5guide: The aren’t they missing the point of having an interactive medium? #editorchat

[20:22:16] LydiaBreakfast: @stephauteri I think lots of publishers are still not on board with the interactive part of the medium. #editorchat

[20:22:20] mobienthusiast: @jennipps & @anti9to5guide sounds like they want to avoid lawsuit fodder & don’t want to involve their lawyers in comments. #editorchat

[20:22:22] milehighfool: @stephauteri I wonder if many publishers are missing out on interactivity? How interactive is this group with readers? #editorchat

[20:22:25] anndouglas: The situation really took my enjoyment out of blogging as compared to @torontostar (which = best practices for linking etc) #editorchat

[20:22:27] milehighfool: @anndouglas Did they notice? Did they mind? #editorchat

[20:22:59] jennipps: @mobienthusiast Good point and one I hadn’t thought of. #editorchat

[20:23:04] anndouglas: @torontostar understands I need to create community. Even had a community member take my questions (in post) to her blog. #editorchat

[20:23:59] milehighfool: See, this is interest. Online writers are more optimistic but community building efforts are nascent or nonexistent. #editorchat

[20:23:59] jenwillis: Other than ads or premium subscription service, how do online publishers plan to make money (and the pay their contributors)? #editorchat

[20:24:00] wordful: @milehighfool you have to be interactive with your readers — that’s the whole idea of web 2.0 publishing. I know I am… #editorchat

[20:24:04] stephauteri: @milehighfool: I try to hop in on any discussion taking place on one of my pieces. Otherwise, I’m no longer a part of the convo! #editorchat

[20:24:07] anti9to5guide: Yes, it’s a directive from their legal dept. And in all honesty, the comments are seriously nasty much of the time. #editorchat

[20:24:15] LydiaBreakfast: @anndouglas That is best case scenario, what is it going to take to get other publishers to encourage that from their staff? #editorchat

[20:24:26] stephauteri: @milehighfool: And when you start the convo, shouldn’t you remain a part of it? #editorchat

[20:24:50] anndouglas: @milehighfool No one has ever raised issue. Have to assume they are ok with it or policy is more lib. #editorchat

[20:24:56] JMegonigal: @milehighfool Sadly, I wonder if many publishers consider themselves “above” their readers… does anyone else see this? #editorchat

[20:24:58] anti9to5guide: What I can do is link back to conversation/topic raised in a future column. So it’s not entirely dropped. #editorchat

[20:25:10] jennipps: @jenwillis Maybe that could be where the product sales someone mentioned earlier could come in, at least in part. #editorchat

[20:25:17] LydiaBreakfast: @anti9to5guide Then aren’t we supressing “free speech?” (another sticky wicket) #editorchat

[20:25:17] milehighfool: @stephauteri Right. You also lose credibility with reader if you ask a question, they respond, and you fail to engage further #editorchat

[20:25:26] mobienthusiast: I follow at least 5 #sandiego Union-Tribune employees; after last #editorchat @rickywhy and others made rss feeds, very responsive group

[20:25:38] edwardboches: Marzotti key note http://bit.ly/QflSx is brilliant. most popular online content is long format journalism, how to monetize #editorchat

[20:25:40] milehighfool: RT @JMegonigal Sadly, I wonder if many publishers consider themselves “above” their readers… does anyone else see this? #editorchat

[20:25:48] jimmcbee: I think it’s going to take several more ‘funerals’ before publishers see the light. #editorchat

[20:25:53] anndouglas: @LydiaBreakfast I think they are going to have to see competitors thriving. Then they will pay attention. #editorchat

[20:27:03] PDXsays: Hi freelance journalist and freelance editor here in PDX #editorchat

[20:27:05] stephauteri: @anti9to5guide: It can be tough distinguishing who is just trying to stir the pot. Sometimes responding only fuels the flames. #editorchat

[20:27:06] mhertz: I think community building takes a lot of work. It’s a long-term investment, one which may be hard to do in this economy. #editorchat

[20:27:08] jennipps: @anti9to5guide Ah. In that case, I understand it some. I can see how they’d think what the writer says could inflame commenters. #editorchat

[20:27:11] edwardboches: john talked about engaging much last week, can you use engaging also to convince reader of value of professional journalism? #editorchat

[20:27:37] edwardboches: worked with MPA and publishers for years, never felt that publishers thought they were above. more likely editors felt superior #editorchat

[20:27:43] milehighfool: @jimmcbee You’ve been an editor, Jim. How do publishers view the reader? #editorchat

[20:27:52] newswise: Interactivity in your content is crucial to web 2.0, even though I hate that term. #editorchat

[20:28:06] WriterWay: Anyone have the link to that Pew study of online v. print writers? #editorchat

[20:28:13] LydiaBreakfast: @JMegonigal For that answer you have to look at who is building a thriving community. Engaged readers, good stories, etc. #editorchat

[20:28:21] kitchenMage: I saw a figure recently that 60% of ‘mom-blogger’ posts include product mention. Revenue stream=amazon, etc. #editorchat

[20:28:32] milehighfool: @mhertz I’m not sure. Twitter is free — instant community if you engage conversationally, no? #editorchat

[20:28:39] anti9to5guide: @stephauteri @jennipps Yeah. But I also think @milehighfool raises good point re not dropping the ball with readers. #editorchat

[20:28:43] tweditor: @edwardboches I think it might be too late to convince readers. Don’t underestimate cut and paste as the great content thief. #editorchat

[20:28:50] BaileyMcC: community building is key – look @ recent Forrester research that says PR to rep communities rather than brands now – trend #editorchat

[20:28:54] jimmcbee: at my last 2 pubs, I was blessed with bosses who got it. Before that? fuggedaboudit. #editorchat

[20:29:10] edwardboches: @kitchenMage some (many?) mom blogger paid by brands, less objective than true journalism #editorchat

[20:29:12] milehighfool: @WriterWay We’ll get it embedded at the blog after this chat. editorchat.wordpress.com #editorchat

[20:29:24] jennipps: @anti9to5guide Definitely. Though I can understand it, I don’t agree with it. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:29:44] newswise: @kitchenMage do you read dooce? Heather insists she only mentions stuff she actually uses. #editorchat

[20:29:51] stephauteri: @anti9to5guide: This is true. It seems foolish to not engage with ANY readers. This is a matter of comment regulation. #editorchat

[20:30:11] PDXsays: @BaileyMcC caution will robinson: these roles in PR and community still morphing, and that is over the last 6 manths #editorchat #editorchat

[20:30:11] anti9to5guide: Curious, what do you do when a reader attacks you on their blog? Respond? Let it go? For some journos, such attacks are the norm #editorchat

[20:30:14] milehighfool: So back to the topic if innovation. if you had to build a community right now, where do you start? #editorchat

[20:30:30] jimmcbee: most publishers’ job is to make sure corporate gets its cut, not to hobnob with the hoi polloi #editorchat

[20:30:33] PDXsays: test #editorchat #editorchat

[20:30:32] jenwillis: @kitchenMage Backfires if those blogs want to write a negative review about a product. Plus, you have to wonder about bias. #editorchat

[20:30:40] TJCNYC: I re-subscribed to “The Atlantic” because I want long-form journalism to thrive. Would have paid double, given the oppty. #editorchat

[20:30:52] LydiaBreakfast: @newswise I read dooce and find it hard to believe she can actually use everything she says – not enough hours between TiVo πŸ˜‰ #editorchat

[20:30:57] anti9to5guide: @stephauteri Yeah, like on the nwjobs.com blog for the Seattle Times, I respond when the have a question of me. Or a gripe. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:31:10] jimmcbee: @anti9to5guide let it go. nothing kills trolls like ignoring them #editorchat

[20:31:13] Cotey: All this talk about building communities with readers. Any good examples of that at all at paper blogs? #editorchat.

[20:31:18] milehighfool: Social media is an obvious idea. So are comments. What other ideas have you tried? #editorchat

[20:31:24] mhertz: @milehighfool Guess I meant people may be worried about using their time doing something that doesn’t bring money immediately #editorchat

[20:31:33] jenwillis: @anti9to5guide What’s the old adage? If they’re shooting at you, you must be doing something right? #editorchat

[20:31:34] anndouglas: @anti9to5guide That’s incredible. It must feel odd not answering when someone asks a question. #editorchat

[20:31:40] edwardboches: engaging with readers isn’t even a question. it’s the same for all brands. readers insist on expressing and socializing, #editorchat

[20:31:40] JDEbberly: @milehighfool If I had to build a community right now, I’d start with a blog and Twitter. #editorchat

[20:31:42] stephauteri: @anti9to5guide: Often, such commenters don’t respond to logical response. I try to let it go, while still engaging others. #editorchat

[20:32:05] JDEbberly: RT @jimmcbee: @anti9to5guide let it go. nothing kills trolls like ignoring them #editorchat

[20:32:12] newswise: @anti9to5guide tough question – to respond seems to validate the attack, to ignore seems cowardly #editorchat

[20:32:19] BaileyMcC: @anti9to5guide if its a legit beef-engage u can gain value fr that too. I let it go if its not outright flaming #editorchat

[20:32:32] edwardboches: @JDEbberly but how would you generate revenue? #editorchat

[20:32:33] jennipps: @anti9to5guide I’ve actually had that happen once. I let it go. Not worth the time/energy to try to correct their impression. #editorchat

[20:32:43] kitchenMage: @newswise I am not sure if I believe her. Xmas season saw lots of ’15 ____ I love” complete with (catalog?) photos. #editorchat

[20:32:56] anti9to5guide: @anndouglas On the site where I’m not supposed to respond to comments online, I can email them privately if I like. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:33:05] bob_bobala: @jenwillis Re: blogs backfiring. I think that’s just the price of doing business. You have to embrace the good with the bad. #editorchat

[20:33:12] LydiaBreakfast: Part of growing online community is learning how to engage everyone and not take bait. Just like in real life. #editorchat

[20:33:43] stephauteri: @milehighfool: Re: community-building, I attempt to use Twitter or msg boards, but it’s tough to get readers to engage sometimes #editorchat

[20:33:43] anti9to5guide: @jennipps and others. I agree with letting it go. Nice to hear that others do that. #editorchat

[20:33:45] JDEbberly: @edwardboches I can use ads on the blog & forums and sell products once I have the traffic. #editorchat

[20:33:57] edwardboches: if no one will pay for content other than media companies and corporations, journalists risk losing their $$ value #editorchat

[20:34:01] jennipps: @milehighfool Good question. Would interaction in other forums/communities count as possibly building your own? #editorchat

[20:34:13] BaileyMcC: RT@edwardboches: engaging w/readers isn’t a question.it’s the same for all brands.readers insist on expressing and socializing, #editorchat

[20:34:23] anndouglas: @jennipps For a while, namecalling/insults + swearing @ blogger tolerated at one site I blog for. Policy changed. #editorchat

[20:34:25] PDXsays: @anti9to5guide check out @chrisheuer posts he is lead of @socailmediaclub, a group all about SoMe (social media) and that man by #editorchat

[20:34:29] mobienthusiast: RT @LydiaBreakfast Part of growing online community is learning how to engage everyone & not take bait. Just like in real life #editorchat

[20:34:34] apowerpoint: Some guidelines on how to respond to posts/comments from the Air Force. http://bit.ly/12mdZi #editorchat

[20:34:46] milehighfool: And community doesn’t just have to be online. The old fashioned open house could work for a local paper or bureau. #editorchat

[20:35:07] LydiaBreakfast: We have gone off on a tangent – Q2 When creating online content, should writers have to become SEO experts to get more readers #editorchat

[20:35:14] jimmcbee: it’s not like trolls are a brand new phenomenon … kinda telling that we’re just now figuring out how to deal with them. #editorchat

[20:35:35] Cotey: building community via comments AND registration is pretty tough. We had a great active H.S. sportsblog…before registration. #editorchat

[20:35:42] gmarkham: @edwardboches but once value is established there is a core that will pay. #editorchat

[20:35:55] milehighfool: RT @LydiaBreakfast: We have gone off on a tangent – Q2 When creating online content, should writers have to become SEO experts? #editorchat

[20:39:17] milehighfool: @JMegonigal Therin lies the problem with SEO — it can substitute for good narrative. What good is that? #editorchat

[20:39:48] jennipps: @edwardboches I’ve done both but have an easier time with flow if I write it as I go. #editorchat

[20:39:53] wordful: good to be mindful of SEO but not write for SEO. The point if SEO is to connect humans, not search engines #editorchat

[20:39:59] SuziSteffen: @edwardboches Depends on whether it’s directly for online (links as I go) or first for print (can add later). #editorchat

[20:41:15] JMegonigal: Idealist and Unrealistic, but journalism USED to be about information, NOT profits. It has morphed -original journ is long gone. #editorchat

[20:41:20] mhertz: @wordful Agreed. “Expert” is too big of a term. Maybe just “informed” when it comes to SEO. #editorchat

[20:46:52] MargaretClark: @edwardboches I think about it from the start AND go back through afterwards to make sure my keywords are sprinkled throughout #editorchat

[20:47:45] solotraveler: @Single_Shot #editorchat all websites should have at least basic SEO. Beyond that and you need analytics and metrics to SEO really well.

[20:54:01] JMegonigal: @LydiaBreakfast Absolutely. Linking to other sources, etc. only helps reinforce the article itself (or should, if it’s correct!) #editorchat

[20:54:09] spencerspellman: I think linking to and with others should have mutual benefits although it doesn’t always #editorchat

[20:54:15] anti9to5guide: @milehighfool I’ve come to expect it and I think readers have too. I just hope it’s not more “the media sux” ammo. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:54:18] milehighfool: RT @PDXsays: @KakieF true quality drives SEO #editorchat

[20:54:16] stephauteri: RT @mhertz Only including links back to your own work seems (at least to me) too self-serving. #editorchat

[20:54:20] tweditor: Q3: Re: linking only to your own content. Are any pubs/comm entities that self-aggrandizing? In 2009? #editorchat

[20:54:21] SuziSteffen: Q3 I link as much as I can in blog posts for the paper out of interest for the readers. Also I think there’s more to crawl. #editorchat

[20:54:33] spencerspellman: @LydiaBreakfast Yes I understand what you mean by that. #editorchat

[20:54:35] PDXsays: @BeckyDMBR where are you? there are now 12 Beerandblog.com meetings world wide, devoted to such topics through local experts fee #editorchat

[20:54:36] Single_Shot: @milehighfool I always come up with heds, 2, but they don’t always use them. As for SEO, I haven’t given it a thought. Ever. #editorchat

[20:54:39] LisaGemini: If any of you is an SEO expert, please get in touch with me. I need major help w/ SEO. #editorchat

[20:54:40] xybrewer: SEO Q3: Answer changes over time, but latest answer is linking to both yours and other sites in an article. #editorchat

[20:54:46] TMFZahrim: outside links helps SE ranking but hurts retention. My editors love retention. #editorchat

[20:54:59] mtlb: RT @edwardboches: god save us all, writers and readers if SEO becomes the driving force behind our content #editorchat

[20:54:59] JDEbberly: RT @LisaGemini: If any of you is an SEO expert, please get in touch with me. I need major help w/ SEO. #editorchat

[20:55:00] milehighfool: @stephauteri What about to the site? I’ll often link to other Fools but rarely do we link outside fool.com. #editorchat

[20:55:02] LydiaBreakfast: Linking to external and competitors sites blurs lines. Is there enough pie for everyone to have a slice? #editorchat

[20:55:04] edwardboches: the best links take you to unexpected, interesting finds, that a reader will be thankful for #editorchat

[20:55:06] jennipps: @KakieF If you’re linking via hand-coded HTML, insert “target=_blank” before you close the tag. #editorchat

[20:55:10] bob_bobala: I think it definitely helps to link to good external sources. Gives you more credibility, and makes your content less about you. #editorchat

[20:55:21] MargaretClark: @edwardboches Links help Google identify your topical community. Make sure you are pointing to authoritative sites… #editorchat

[20:55:28] jimmcbee: putting a no-link-out fence around your product misses the whole point of the Internet #editorchat

[20:55:27] xybrewer: SEO Q3: If linking to your own site, pay attention to the words in the link text; make them key terms, if it feels natural. #editorchat

[20:55:35] Booklorn: @KakieF Forcing page 2 open in different window is bad (considered rude by many). If users want new page they know how 2 get it. #editorchat

[20:55:35] wordful: helps at 1st to link out, then u need to reign it in a bit to keep your community close. as you mature, linking out helps other #editorchat

[20:55:35] apowerpoint: @edwardboches and good for SEO #editorchat

[20:55:38] spencerspellman: I believe for writers and just businesses to be successful now, we will have to rely more on each other and working together #editorchat

[20:55:47] milehighfool: @Single_Shot You are officially my heroine. For the next 5 minutes. #editorchat

[20:56:18] milehighfool: @bob_bobala That seems to be the prevailing wisdom and it makes sense. Links are the currency of the Web, yes? #editorchat

[20:56:24] bob_bobala: @TMFZahrim They should provide the best experience to get the best retention. I would do things differently if still there! #editorchat

[20:56:25] PDXsays: @BeckyDMBR freewhat I meant… ystart a chapter in ur community… @justinkistner founded these.. SEO knowledge viral in PDX now #editorchat

[20:56:25] KakieF: @tweditor I sometimes link back to some of my old stuff for reference only #editorchat

[20:56:28] tweetpea: RT SAY IT AGAIN! @Wordful: SEO should come after great content has been established #editorchat

[20:56:29] anti9to5guide: Hear hear. RT @edwardboches: god save us all, writers & readers if SEO becomes the driving force behind our content #editorchat #editorchat

[20:56:31] gmarkham: @TMFZahrim quality of links establishes trustiworthiness, value of linkees. may hurt retention, but not future visits #editorchat

[20:56:34] JMegonigal: @spencerspellman Good luck! Tried to PROMOTE other editors (positively) in our region recently. All refused to participate. #editorchat

[20:56:34] xybrewer: @lydiabreakfast I think there is, if you’re staying true to the content and giving readers what they want. #editorchat

[20:56:45] jimmcbee: @LydiaBreakfast the pie keeps growing exponentially. There’s just no money in it, cos Google vacuumed it all out. #editorchat

[20:56:46] spencerspellman: @LydiaBreakfast That’s a great ? about blurring lines, I think it’s important to set goals and not go crazy with linking #editorchat

[20:56:53] JDEbberly: RT @edwardboches: the best links take you to unexpected, interesting finds, that a reader will be thankful for #editorchat

[20:56:55] xybrewer: @lydiabreakfast Is there some credibility in admitting when a competitor has better supporting information? #editorchat

[20:57:04] milehighfool: @jimmcbee Right. Yiou rob yourself of the some of the community-building opportunities we’ve been discussing. #editorchat

[20:57:03] stephauteri: @milehighfool: I link to other sites all the time, but direct link to open in separate window, to encourage readers to return. #editorchat

[20:57:03] jennipps: @Booklorn 1st I’ve heard of that. Always heard opening in a new window keeps visitors @ your site & doesn’t drive them away. #editorchat

[20:57:06] KakieF: RT @edwardboches: the best links take you to unexpected, interesting finds, that a reader will be thankful for #editorchat

[20:57:11] PDXsays: @LydiaBreakfast like 7-11 stores, more on the corner, more biz u have #editorchat

[20:57:14] mhertz: People are too worried about losing readers by linking out. Good content should keep them there, short attention span be damned. #editorchat

[20:57:21] anndouglas: @milehighfool Do you mean you’d pull a keyword out of something you know ppl would be searching on today, like fool? #editorchat

[20:57:20] GLENNatMHz: SEO is the new paperboy. #editorchat

[20:57:28] TMFZahrim: @gmarkham Agreed and I want to use them more. How can I convince my higher-ups? #editorchat

[20:57:31] wordful: @xybrewer probably better to have the best supporting info yourself to begin with #editorchat

[20:57:34] spencerspellman: @LydiaBreakfast I think linking to others should be focused and have goals though or it will have a hard time working #editorchat

[20:57:39] bob_bobala: @milehighfool There’s this paranoia about losing people. But if you’re offering a great experience, people will come back. #editorchat

[20:57:39] mariaelenaduron: RT @spencerspellman That’s a great ? about blurring lines, I think it’s important to set goals and not go crazy w/linking #editorchat

[20:58:00] JMegonigal: @jimmcbee LOL. A big pie with nothing in it. Would be hilarious, except I’d like to be a for-profit someday! #editorchat

[20:58:04] mobienthusiast: @LydiaBreakfast yes, it’s my site so I don’t answer to an editor. I know for a fact w/o links I wouldn’t have the traffic I have #editorchat

[20:58:06] stephauteri: @milehighfool: Maybe it’s just web, but I’m finding some sites to be more collaborative than competitive. And me likee! #editorchat

[20:58:06] PDXsays: @mhertz loose more readers thru poor usability on ur own webstite than outside links #editorchat

[20:58:10] tweditor: @KakieF Maybe I misunderstood? I think the implication is that some orgs only link back to their own stuff and never outside. #editorchat

[20:58:20] DrFernKazlow: #editorchat

[20:58:25] milehighfool: @anndouglas No, not a keyword but a link, like a blog or relevant news story. #editorchat

[20:58:33] spencerspellman: @JMegonigal I would be interested to hear more about that, however, I agree that it’s hard getting others to see the benefit #editorchat

[20:58:38] Single_Shot: @anti9to5guide Reminds me of an old Far Side cartoon, what dogs hear. Blah blah blah blah SEO. Blah blah SEO SEO SEO. Blah blah. #editorchat

[20:58:52] gmarkham: @TMFZahrim tell them to take a look at Drudge’s numbers: all link based, huge traffic. #editorchat

[20:58:54] KakieF: RT @bob_bobala: @milehighfool There’sparanoia about losing people. If you’re offering great experience, people will come back. #editorchat

[20:59:14] bob_bobala: @TMFZahrim You can track your page views (and in your case likely newsletter leads). Don’t think they will go down at all. #editorchat

[20:59:25] anti9to5guide: My fave example of linking out is a pal who blogs for Microsoft and convinced them to let her link to flickr & other sites. #editorchat

[20:59:26] wordful: @Single_Shot that’s very funny #editorchat

[20:59:31] jenwillis: @Single_Shot LOL! I loved that cartoon. The dog’s name was Ginger. I feel much the same when it comes to SEO. πŸ™‚ #editorchat

[20:59:48] mhertz: @PDXsays I agree with you. Usability is obviously important, too. #editorchat

[21:00:00] DryerBuzz: when editors worry about the SEO, does the story get out? #editorchat

[21:00:14] jimmcbee: @JMegonigal tell me about it! … reality is, we’re at the pre-model T horseless carriage stage. No one knows what model’ll win #editorchat

[21:00:15] anndouglas: @milehighfool I do that, too. I mean if everyone is talking about it, you might as well tie it in – unless it’s a huge stretch. #editorchat

[21:00:45] TMFZahrim: @bob_bobala Um, they hardly let us poor contractors know which articles do well or not. Who do I have to kill? #editorchat

[21:00:48] Booklorn: @jennipps: If u search for forcing links to open in new page you will see plenty against. #editorchat

[21:00:53] anti9to5guide: @Single_Shot HILARIOUS! I hope it stays that way. Was so turned off when a certain client asked me 2 use keywords in a lede. #editorchat
