August 22, 2014 – Confessions of the Professions is excited to introduce a new feature to the website which is long overdue and is present on almost all Social Media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, Tumblr, and others are joining the #hashtag conversation. Confessions of the Professions seeks to always be a part of the conversation and is happy to climb aboard the hashtag trend. In utilizing the hashtag, currently, you may view what is trending currently on Twitter. We feel that it is very important to see what others are talking about or sharing on Twitter and hope to incorporate future conversations from other social media sites as well.
Hashtags are very similar to keywords in that they help people to have a conversation, know what the main topic is about, and establish the keywords of the content inside the article. Hashtags have become a media sensation, seen on mainstream television in commercials, movies, television shows, and the news. Hashtags are not going anywhere and are used as a “conversation”, in which people use it to communicate with each other, shout out, or make others aware of an event, a product, or any other piece of news information.
Hashtags became the primary way to search for keywords and phrases on Twitter, slowly being adapted by other Social Media Networks, and eventually being picked up by Google+ and Google algorithms, while being implemented into the Bing and Yahoo search functions for greater media pickup. We are always looking for ways to improve our own search engine result listings in order to get and be discovered by more and more people looking for Confessions of the Professions and all related topics. Hashtags may also be used to search for specific topics on Confessions of the Professions.
Every new confession, article, infographic, and ebook will be fitted with a one (1) matching hashtag that best describes the entire article in one single keyword, as seen in the example below. Older confessions will also receive the same treatment and a hashtag will be assigned. Currently, the hashtag keyword can be found below the article, though this may find another more easily visible place on the page. When the hashtag is clicked, a window will popup showing the Twitter hashtag conversation and all related tweets or articles with it, courtesy of Hashcore. Become part of the conversation and do not hesitate to use hashtags in your comments!
