    Along with networking Symzio and your sites, if you also author a blog, you can now link to and from the Symzio Blog:

    http://www.symzio.com/blog/

    If you want to add a similar menu to your site, just do the following:

    Go to Appearance > Menus and create a new menu. Add your links there. To add Symzio, for example, you would add:

    http://www.symzio.com/blog/
    Symzio Official Blog

    Then go to Appearance > Widgets and add a ‘Custom Menu’ to wherever your navigation is. Add the menu you just created. Done!

    We recommend you regularly check the list on Symzio and of your own accord add all those members to your list. This way we are giving Google even more relevant links, and marketing everyone’s sites in a content driven manner.

    Remember – SEO is no longer just about getting links into your site. Google loves it if you link out to relevant sites as well. And as we are all in business of the stock industry, it will boost everyone to link to everyone else.

    So again – refer to the Symzio Blog list as the master list and every now and then add new members that show up there to your own list.

    Finally, if you have a blog and want it included, post it here or message a member of the team.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the many years I’ve been in the web marketing industry, it’s that you keep trying, fiddling with this thing or that, tweaking this and that, and each little move creates a certain increase in your traffic circulation. As you keep working on it, they start accumulating and opportunities start opening up.

    You’ll get backlinks you never asked for. People will contact you for reviews. You’ll get followers and likes. You’ll get sales on Symzio and your own site. Etc, etc. Just keep making blog posts, posting on social media, contacting this blog here, that person there, create new media for sale, etc.

    We’re getting new contributors almost daily on Symzio now. We’ve actually had to reject a number of applicants because the images seemed sub-par. Even affiliates.

    The end goal, of course, is sales – but having a popular blog is also has its monetary value. So we’re trying to do everything we can to expand our reach as independents – and truly self employed entrepreneurs.

    Great idea. I started to know about symbiostock first when I read Backyardsilver (Steve) blog about it. I’m also planning to start writing blog about our independent site and some other tutorials in my website. My problem is I’m not good in writing specially in english, it’s not my primary language. I’ll try to add Symzio blog in my website’s menu anyway.

    Really? I tried on different devices without issues. Could you please send me a screenshot to make sure I know what you meant? Thanks for letting me know anyway.

    Google Chrome’s Web Console displays a mixed content warning message when I go to your blog: “Mixed Content: The page at ‘https://picturebreeze.com/blog/’ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image ‘http://picturebreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/logo-ia-90×350.png’. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.” That is the reason why some images are not working.

    To fix this error, requests to HTTP content should be removed and replaced with content served over HTTPS. Some common examples of mixed content include JavaScript files, stylesheets, images, videos, and other media.

    Redneck,

    I found a broken link on your site here: https://picturebreeze.com/underwater-camera-options/

    The image is not displaying.

    Thanks, George. That’s the same issue. When you access the website via https instead of http some images might not appear. I’ll fix it soon.

    Ok, I did it!  Followed Robin’s instructions and I have the links of Symzio and Picturebreeze on my blog, which is at: http://georgesheldon.com/blog

    Anyone else want to trade links?
