Social Media Affects SEO

There are at least a few ways that social media affects a website’s SEO both directly and indirectly.

We’ll count down a few of the ways.

1. Links and their potential to be used as backlinks: No matter how many articles float by on Twitter, invariably some of them are cited by other websites and even in journalism. This kind of inbound linking is an indirect way that social media affects page ranking.

2. Traffic: People who visit a website via link on social media, contribute directly to its search ranking. Depending on the frequency of their visits they may actually represent the majority of the traffic reaching a website. This would be a direct way that social media affects site ranking.

Tips for increasing seo ranking.

Google+, Among the many social sharing sites this one sits nearest to the indexers themselves and spending a little time sharing your content here can boost your rankings as well as your engagement.

Pinterest, If you have blogs with images pin them after renaming them logical names rather than numbers, because many shares come from this platform in ways that drive up rankings.

Of course the essential thing to remember is that engaging others on social media is critical to the success of any Social SEO strategy, so use the tools that each platform offers. Hashtags on twitter help index your content on twitter but also may help writers find articles to cite.

Reshared content gets indexed much more quickly than it would simply sitting on a website so make sure your visitors know where the sharing buttons are.

(Mine are over on the left, that strip of colored buttons, click the + if you don’t see your social sites of choice and you want to send something.)

Equally important is allowing people to connect across platforms so have visible follow buttons. (On the right, near the top of the blog. #Cheers)

Content related keywords should always be relevant. I could highlight any of the words in this article and turn them to links, but if they do not relate to the blog topic, it doesn’t do the reader of the indexer any favors.

Likewise on social media this will affect how many people reshare your content.

I’ll add this to my blogs about social media, and continue the series with:

  • Product information
  • And monetization

Thanks for reading this!

  1. Admiring the persistence you put into your blog and detailed information you provide. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  3. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche. Wonderful blog!

  5. Excellent website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about here?

  6. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  7. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?

Wonderful blog by the way!

I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

  10. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
