Dear Ning Creators
I loved the versatility of the template Ning, when you start the project (March -2012) had in mind to hire a designer to modify my template css. This was not necessary as the design tools provided by Ning enough.
I note a few points:
1. While we must keep in mind the word innovation, we can not deny that people got used much to the design of "some social networks."
Design "similar" to that of Fb.
Original Ning Theme: Sophisticated
Color: # 3b5898
Result in Picture:
2. As people fill my social network?
My strategy is to viralizar content (pictures and videos funny), as well as appeal to patriotism ("Red Social Peruana"), through popular fan page facebook.
3. Technical SEO (search engine optimization, under certain keywords). In thiscase "Peruvian Social Network."
How to Measure the position of my keyword in Google?
Results: From January - March. 2012 to date 18 March 2012
Registered Members: 1562
Fans in Fb: 8100 Fans
Alexa Rank: Rank 166 in Perú, Global 126mil
Results: From January - March. 2012 to date 22 March 2012
I hope they help in some way my little experience, and apologize for my English, little use translator.
PD: I've seen a lot of valuable information on design and other tips, however I think they are leaving out the thematic search engine optimization.
