This past Monday #journchat had a formal theme dedicated to SEO and journalism. To help us navigate the SEO waters we brought in expert Rand Fishkin of SEOmoz. Below is a formal recap from the hour-long conversation.
Q1 What’s the difference between optimizing for Google’s normal “web” search vs. “news search?”
@Randfish: @journchat Difference is big. Web [...]

Calling all #journchat participants. This time you can join me for a LIVE edition with a major news network.

Last night’s #journchat was inspired by The Shark Guys’ tongue-in-cheek post, 25 Ways to Save the Newspaper Industry. The purpose of the chat was not to portray the print (and their online counterpart) industry as a damsel in distress. We shared ideas, thoughts and tips to energize an industry and, of course, encourage others to [...]

This morning the leadership of Cision and I announced a new partnership around #journchat. I want to let chat participants know a few things: 1) I will remain as the chat moderator; 2) The format will remain the same (although we’ll experiment with other platforms like LiveFyre); 3) Ownership over question selection, chat themes [...]

Share Play nice. This is probably one of the keys in the book “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten,” but I haven’t read it. It’s a simple statement. In fact, it’s one of the rules I share each week as #journchat begins. It’s meant as a “gentle” reminder that we [...]
The first question (Q1) during Monday night’s #journchat was “What should a hyperlocal news site include/not include? What advice do you have?” With 200+ weekly participants there are many views shared from journalists, bloggers and public relations professionals (and students).
Here’s their take on what will make a successful hyperlocal newsroom. First, let me share my [...]

This past year we’ve had featured guests Steve Brusk, CNN national assignment editor, Richard Laermer, Bad Pitch Blog, Adam Ostrow, editor of Mashable and tonight Jen Preston, social media editor at the New York Times. Thanks to all for joining [...]
This past Monday was a surreal experience for me. My first day as a new business owner included sitting at the Chicago Tribune and watching #journchat come to life. Listening to people discuss and debate questions was intense and fulfilling. It was overwhelming (in a good way) as I attempted to balance seven live events, [...]
