So Empower Network Blog Posts Finally Get Flagged For Spamming On Facebook
Well well well, I guess it was only a matter of time. A lot of people kept spamming and abusing their Empower Network blog posts across Facebook all the time and kept hammering it. It was only a matter of time until some hater decides to flag it and have it reported. Is this a good thing or a bad thing for Empower Network bloggers? Well it depends how you look at it. Quite frankly, somebody like myself who has his own blog could care less anyway lol. However it’s not all about me. There are a lot of those who rely completely and primarily just on Facebook as a source of traffic and syndication. Needless to say, I do a lot of syndication as well through Facebook and of course a lot of my target audience comes from there too.
For a lot of people, including myself, this could be also seen as a massive relief from all the spamming and blatant pitching of the system to our faces all the freaking time. It seems nobody listened to what I said in this post and lo and behold, somebody complained. At least a lot of news feeds will be cleaned out a lot from here on.
If you are not exactly sure what I’m talking about, you can read the post again here.
Why Did Facebook Ban Empower Network Blog Posts?
So a lot of people may be wondering exactly why and my guess is probably as good as yours. But to be honest, I felt that it was going to happen sooner or later. Admittedly, I do see a lot of people blatantly spam it and flood people’s news feeds to no end with abuse. There’s always an Empower Network Blog Post shared across some channel or network. That’s not what I think is the problem though. I don’t think it’s the Empower Network posts that are the problem more so than the ACTUAL CONTENT in there. Seriously though, I don’t think someone in their right mind would flag Empower Network for no reason at all unless they came across content that they felt s**ty about, content that stank, content that just freaking wasted their time. This also multiplied by tenfold as well and eventually someone got sick of it.
What ANNOYS people the most is when people blatantly spam or pitch in their content. A lot of Empower Network blog posts I read on Facebook were about what? JOIN Empower Network! BUY the products! Make me money! It’s been done to death so much that someone, for valid reasons or not, decided to complain, whine and b***h about it.
Now don’t get me wrong – I have nothing against Empower Network blog posts at all – in fact, I blog on the damn system. But at the end of the day, haters are gonna hate. And what are they going to hate the most? The actual content. It’s likely not the system people are annoyed with. It’s likely the content. There’s a huge difference between blogging about Empower Network this and that and blogging about something that will entertain, amuse, make people laugh, or inform someone of a specific need, or educate in a specific topic.
Honestly, the banners across the blogging system itself will sell and convert for you – so YOU don’t have to do the selling at all! Just blog. Don’t spam. If people want to buy stuff from you – they will. You don’t have to force feed it down people’s throats. And people who don’t want to buy stuff from you at least got some value out of your post. You want it to be a win-win.
What Should I Do Since My Empower Network Blog Posts Got Banned From Facebook?
Needless to say, I am also with Empower and I also got hit by this change. But what about those without their own blogs and rely solely on the Empower Network blog? The simplest answer I can give you is THIS article. Okay so you don’t have time to watch that quick video but what I’m saying is that you need to have diversified traffic. If you only relied on Facebook for just generating leads then you just put your eggs in that same basket, which just got dropped. But guess what? Thanks to Empower Network’s training, there is literally a s***load of more ways to generate traffic to your blog and syndicate it through many sources.
There’s still Youtube, Twitter, Google+, EZA, you name it. SEO gurus and article marketers probably don’t care either. But all I’m saying is that don’t let this discourage you from blogging on Empower Network but also don’t let it encourage you to spam the other sites too lol. Make sure your posts actually provide value like inform, entertain (highly recommended btw), educate or just simply offer a valid opinion.
There’s still so many places to syndicate your stuff, especially since Empower Network is still fast growing into a huge authority site. Watch the training on the 15K Per Month Formula for a truckload of syndication methods. There’s so many opportunities there and Facebook is just a piece of the pie.
A lot of people also noticed Dave and Dave’s Empower Team on Facebook also disappeared. I’m sure there’s a riot going on about it right now but don’t worry, I’m sure the Daves aren’t sweating much about it and rest assured that it won’t be too much of a problem. Thank goodness though that my own group wasn’t affected since I had some rules regarding Empower Network Blog Posts and spammy, pitchy kind of posts.
So where to from here? I just told you – the answer is in the 15K Per Month Formula within the Empower Network system.
Anyway, just my personal opinion, it also does help to have your own personal hosting and domain juuuuuust in case hehe. In any case, don’t worry, we’re all here to guide each other and let’s stay strong and keep kicking ass with your Empower Network Blog Posts with our without Facebook!
