If you agree Social Shares is the New SEO then you will like how my DiY Content Marketing System helps increase your shares and improve your social authority so long as your social link wheel is congruent with all of the above.
For your readers @ginidietrich who are active on Google+ and who've read and agree with @DavidAmerlandsemantic web search concepts, the way Quora handles the Q&A dynamic is almost ideal for (SME) subjet matter experts to showcase their knowledge and insights. I've neglected my Quora profile for awhile now and need to revisit and fix that sooner than later.

Social Media Marketing and Content Marketing go hand in glove in the digital marketing space. There's such a high noise level in the social websphere that most small business owners find it a challenge to compete with. It takes a seasoned blogger 3-4 hours to publish an A+ article that has the right mix of 500-750 words, 2 alt text images, embedded media (slideshare, YT video) with a decent CTA that will hopefully trigger the normal 2-3% CTR versus a DiT content marketing system whereby one can curate 3-5 trending pieces of content and syndicate this material (with a custom intro/insight) that frames the submission such that the reader will WANT to open, read and share. You have to do BOTH (create original content) and curate quality content to compete these days.

@Tmakillin I use and so do my clients, a combination of Scoop.it and Feedly and a few other curation tactics and syndicate the content to my top socials and flagship WP website. ROI is still fluid and fleeting ;-)

Timely and useful Nick. My key take away and the "punchline" I would address if my review of List.ly is accepted would cover this;
What is a great list? → A great list is one that inspires others to contribute.
One of my best performing lists still ranks on page of Google for "Is social shares the new seo" and has for quite some time.

I will ask (once) that you remove my content from your Pinterest page that you stole and using it as if you created it. My social link wheel is not to be used by thieves like you. The same message will be added to your Google+ page as well. Got it pal!

@PegFitzpatrick @Social SEO Consultant Hey Peg - You have the option to share and update via Scoop.it directly to FB, T, LI (or) you can opt to have the share/updates get processed viaa Buffer App which I prefer for scheduling ease and the added analytics Buffer provides on its dashboard

I would add Scoop.it and Commun.it to this list of SMM automation tool-set.
I like how Commun.it shows me WHO are my most engaged Twitter followers, their most used #hashtags used in their Tweets and how it tracks their social engagement on Twitter, although SocialBro (free or fee) version is pretty handy too. Scoop.it when connected with Buffer App is handy for curation and syndication of content (by Topic). Friends+Me when connected to Google Plus enables one to Post to Plus and share to Li, FB, and Twitter, although the Rebel Mouse rendering sometimes doesn't come out as nicely as when I use manual post/share routine.

Good imagery can make all the difference in the world. With the maturation on In-Depth Articles and Google's appeal to the 2,000+ word epic post, adding optimized images in your piece connected to your other top socials properties like; Slideshare and List.ly and MindMeister and YT and the list goes on can help influence if you pages shows up at the top of Google.

I've experimented with KRED + KLOUT and while both aggregate tangible social signals and shares and social activity en masse • I am not so sure the big SE's have integrated these into their core algo yet?

@TheSocialSketch My tests show that SocialBro does a pretty good job for analyzing your Twitter accounts and configuring the "best time to tweet" schedule which is only part 1 of the process. What you want to do is sync your Twitter accounts to the Buffer App http://bit.ly/t0Xvox then enable Bro to configure your scheduled Tweets, else going about the manual routine is your option.

Over posting has to be one of the more "over used" tactics in SMM. This is why I let SocialBro scan my Twitter accounts and optimize it for "best time to Tweet" the content I curate from various blogs, forums, news feeds etc.
