Great post. Blogging is really great for long tail phrases. People are so obsessed with things like "restaurant, Chicago." What they may not realize is that they can attract customers by being listed for something like "Where can I eat healthy in Chicago?" Or at least, something to that affect. A lot of good information here!

Totally agreed Patrick. Your blog or website, is also the one place you can brand as your own. A Facebook fan page still has the look and feel of Facebook. Same with all the other social networks. They're great places to go out and connect with the world, but you should develop your blog as your sandbox!

Good post. It's especially important that not every person try to participate in every platform. There's too many. Find the ones you're good at and dive in. But you're absolutely right. If you lack in a certain platform, it's only going to leave you falling short, and potential customers disappointed.
