“photography” then to
58. #1: I’d likely reverse
the title tags to put the
keywords at the front.

Facebook / LinkedIn shares.

connect with them over social networks. As you
share content, they’ll be very likely to help it
spread via Twitter/Facebook/etc.
73. Social Idea #2

and LinkedIn ads. Show results and share with
event marketers (great way to grow your social
reach and get great content).

won’t bring tons of followers, but they will be high

you’re not linking to your site) will build goodwill

crazy. Oh, and make the nominations based on

Reward reviewers with visibility – give top
reviewers/contributors a leaderboard, points, etc.
This could also apply to blog comments.
98. Content Idea #4
Head:Head faceoffs of beauty products that claim
to perform a specific function. Run a test every
week or month and publish the results, with
photos ala Oyster fakeouts. Which skin cream
performs better? Super luxury expensive one? Or
105. Everyone’s using the same
title and description for the
product (likely from the
manufacturer). We’ll need
to fix in order to rank.

Get unique content written about the products and
remove the duplicates. Consider even writing
unique title tags and meta descriptions for each
one, as these can help you stand out in search.
107. SEO Idea #2
Pull in the attributes most used about the product
in reviews (you can even do this from reviews off
your own site). This can create unique content

(like “what not to wear”). Use Facebook/Twitter to
accept nominations, votes, suggestions, etc. and
share the story as it’s in progress.
116. Social Idea #3
ID professional aestheticians with any social
following and reach out to them, requesting that
they help build a “best of XYZ category” via a
survey. Then publish and ask them to help share
it. They’ll be likely to participate and to share,
because they helped create it.
117. Social Idea #4
Use Facepile/Facemash. And get the Facebook
comments plugin that’s indexable onto your blog
(also possibly test it on your product pages).
