What to do after publishing a blog post-part 7-new social voting site.



Well, Kingged.com, a very active social voting site may not be new to all the bloggers but new to me as I came to know about it only a few hours ago. 

(Note: Scroll down to the end of this blog post to view the list of my previous posts on the same topic)

What Exactly Is Kingged.com

In their own words, Kingged.com is a MEGA 4-in-1 Internet Marketing social site. By 4-in-1, it is:

1. An IM News/Content site
2. An IM Social Networking site
3. An IM Social Bookmarking site
4. An IM Product/Service/Software site

I liked the way the site was developed. The home page is split into several categories under which users have shared their content making it very easy for everyone to read and share the content. Very efficiently curated!

What content can you share?
Users can share and "King" or “Unking” (vote up or down)the best Internet marketing content, products and services they find useful.

For example, one can share their favorite web pages in the following Main Sections of Kingged.com
Mobile Marketing
Blogging
SEO / SEM
Internet Marketing
Making Money Online
Affiliate Marketing
Startups
Copywriting

Another unique feature is content curated from several sites and blogs and arranged conveniently as follows:
Top IM Blogs
Top IM Forums
Top IM WSOs
Top IM Marketplaces
Top IM Paid Tools
Top IM Free Tools
Top IM resources

Networking with users:
Kingged.com also allows us to network with other members by way of adding them as your friends and if you decide, you can also ‘follow’ anyone’s activities in the site.  This is making kingged.com as a social network for Internet Marketers and Bloggers. As of now, you can develop relationship with approximately 3700 members.

Content Sharing in Social media     
Under every link social bookmarked, you can find a ‘share’ button which when clicked on, enables you to share the content on leading social media sites that include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Stumbleupon, Delicious and Google+. However, it is advised to rewrite the snippet before finally submitting on these social networking sites as the automatically generated snippet lacks quality.

For example, this is what is given for me to tweet when I wanted to share a social bookmark that read, “InternationalCopywriting: What Can Go Wrong?

Twitter message automatically generated: http://kin.gg/Jkt2W
That is all you would see. This applies to all the social network sharing options.

Reward for social sharing
To encourage users to post what they liked on the leading social networking sites, some points are given each time you share in Facebook, Twitter and so on. For example, once you posted it on your FB wall, you will see a ‘verify’ button. You must click on it to get the points though I am yet to explore the exact number of points awarded and how to use the points.

In fact, you are rewarded for most of your activities (see below) carried out in Kingged.com.
* viewing posts,
* sharing posts
* "kingging" or "unkingging" posts.
* using their IM search engine, powered by Google
* using their free IM tools, etc.

Cons:
The site is loading slowly. There is no ‘about’ page. There is no ‘home’ page navigation button. Some bugs are noticed. But the site says it is still in beta and requests us to forgive the shortcomings and report the bugs.

Forum:
There is a button for forum but it is not yet functional.

Conclusion:
