2. Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn – Each ListPipe article includes a sharing tag for one-click sharing of your customized content into your social accounts. Most of our users are Facebook and Twitter users, and we have made it easy for them to share content from their blog to a wider group of people through their social networks. We also include with each ListPipe account an informative online training experience that teaches the basics of sharing content into social media networks like Facebook and Twitter.

In addition, an increasing number of our posts include video content from your proprietary sources as well as from popular video sites such as YouTube.

Read All About It: New Features in ListPipe

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

We finally launched our new automated About and Contact pages.

readallaboutitWhen a new customer signs up for a blog using our automated system for any of our vertical categories (including dentistry and real estate), our system will automatically create an About page, and a Contact Us page. Both pages are fully editable, of course, and can be modified by the user simply by loging into the blog control panel and making any necessary adjustments.

Square Compass created a new Simple Contact plugin for WordPress expressly for the new feature. The new plugin provides a simple way to add a contact form to your WordPress blog. The no-frills contact form will be available in the WordPress plugins library soon. I'll keep you posted.

As for the new Pages feature in ListPipe, users now have the ability to capture more search engine attention with an automatically customized About page. The About page includes a short, custom paragraph about you based on your input during the registration process. Though simple, the About Us content is designed to give search engines a customized glance at who you are, and provides a more mature position for your ListPipe site.

The Contact Us page is also customized, and includes an automated form that allows your visitors to contact you by completing a simple contact form. The form is customized to deliver the feedback directly to your email address, and includes a Captcha for security, and error checking to help assure you do not get spammed. The form is optimized to ensure, also, that your visitors provide you with at least one method of contact, and warns them if they do not complete the comments field.

We are excited to announce this new feature, and thrilled that we now have a complete solution for those who use ListPipe to capture business leads through Internet marketing.

Google Narrows SEO Objectives with Chrome

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

With the release of Google's new browser called Chrome comes a narrowing of SEO objectives; 'top ten' isn't good enough.

Google released a new Internet browser into the wild yesterday, and almost instantly created a sweeping hit. While I sit by and wait for the Mac version to come out, I couldn't help but notice some important chatter on the new browser interface, and what some of the features are doing for the SEO marketplace.

In particular, the new search feature in Chrome instantly returns the top five results for any search. What?!?

Yes, you heard correctly; the new browser will show a user the top five results for any search typed into the search field. This means that if your website is number six, you may not be immediately visible to a searcher. Talk about turning the market on it's head...

It has long been known that a 'top three' presence was almost critical. Statistically speaking, most of us select our sites from the top two or three slots on any given search results page. Even worse, we typically do this within 7-10 seconds of getting the results page, and we rarely go below the top three. Searchers almost never go to page two. Nevertheless, a presence on the top page, or the 'top ten' was seen as a holy grail of SEO, and generally considered good placement.

Chrome may change the way we look at placement, and will certainly make a top five placement the critical goal.

New Sub Domains to Choose From!

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

We have been working to improve our system, and have implemented the ability for new customers to select from a growing range of custom sub-domains. This means we can now deliver an automated blog system through ListPipe that provides a little more autonomy from the ListPipe system itself.

We are starting with three new domains to choose from; one from each of our current target markets:

When a new customer of ListPipe signs up for a new blog, and subscription to our custom copywriting service, you will have the opportunity to select from one of these domains, and then have the opportunity to name your own sub-domain in the system.

The result is an automated system that allows you to create a blog site such as ''. Naming a sub-domain with a keyword modifier provides an important advantage in SEO, and the more relevant domain names will go a long way to help expand our ability to market the blogs within our system.

We are thrilled that we can now deliver more relevant sub-domains for our future customers. Pass this news along to anyone you know in the real estate, dentistry, or chiropractic markets.

Dental Blogs

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

James Hull DentistryListPipe has recently completed an installation project for James Hull Associates in the United Kingdom. We installed nearly 50 blogs on an independent server, and connected each blog to its own ListPipe account. With the ListPipe pluggin installed, we are able to deliver Powerful Custom Content to each blog, every week, even though they are not part of the domain.

The results we are seeing at this early stage are terrific. Within the first 5 days we were indexed by Google. We are now tracking our performance for the UK dentistry market and are watching to see how quickly our Powerful Custom Content is indexed for each of the James Hull Dentistry practices.

Take a look; you can find a few of the blogs in the list below (once you get to a blog, use the blogroll to bounce around and see other blogs in the James Hull association):

ListPipe Reviewed

Monday, January 14th, 2008

ListPipe was reviewed this week by Chase Sagum, a popular blogger who reviews web based software for the online marketing and development communities.

Chase SagumChase discusses the difference between ListPipe Powerful Custom Content, and automated content services that produce what he calls an 'explosion of content that is designed to satisfy search engines, but not humans.' He goes on to explain that the type of custom content that ListPipe provides is exactly what it takes to get noticed by the search engines, and to achieve a valuable organic search ranking.

In a special nod, Chase recognizes that ListPipe pricing is a great value. He closes by saying that he finds ListPipe to be a 'remarkable and virtually indispensable service for blog marketers who are looking to reach the top of the search engines with good organic SEO content that will appeal to the search engines, and to customers.'
