Wish I Were There (and Other PR PodJots)

Welcome to CustomScoop’s Weekly PR PodJots, our rundown of the best of the PR and marketing podosphere. This week, special thanks go out to Jen Wrobleski and Ryan O’Rourke for lending a helping hand in compiling the Jots. I’m beginning with a special “beachcast,” because it is snowing in New Hampshire and I cannot emphasize enough how much I long for beach weather. Enjoy!

Among many other topics, he discusses improving your online reputation by using smart SEO to land on the front page of Google results for your brand.
In particular, his correspondent Michael discusses the importance of pinging.

Hey, you learn something new every day, right? Michael urges listeners to be sure to ping their blogs with every update, so the search engine spiders will be sure to know that you’ve updated, and bring your site to the top of the most recent results.
