Social Media in SEO for 2016

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by jasontn, Dec 2, 2016.

    It seems like SEO will be heavily dependent on social media power, as it will probably be for next year. Note, however, that the search engines are not looking at likes alone, but also social sharing. Anyhow, I don't think social media is the only metric, but it's a strong one that possibly cannot be ignored.

    Yes indeed it is. We did a ton of tests with social signals.
    But this will help boost rankings just a short time.
    If you think about it, it is totally logical.
    If you are getting buzz, the people are talking about you. This means you are kind of interesting.
    As google wants to show only interesting stuff, providing a good user experience, google will give you a little boost.
    If they stop talking about you, you are not that interesting anymore, means bye bye ranking boost.
    But sometimes you will keep a bit of this boost, depending on your overall SEO stats.

    :)

    For marketing purposes, social media is a big help. But I don't think that it directly gives benefit to SEO.

    it helps in sending traffic to website.
    Social signals(likes, comments,shares) also one of the ranking factor.
    The more you get social signals the more you reach audience.

    I agree with happykahlon. I have a Politics website with rewritten content from websites like CNN and just by sharing the content on facebook groups I have been able to outrank the original article. Don't underestimate the power of social media when it comes to ranking on Google.

    If you think about it, a lot of SEO factors are based only speculations. Some says "SM helps", some says "SM does not help". Google says its "confidential".

    So the bottom line is this: its only among the MANY off-site methods that helps.

    Do you think a website can rank well if they have a good social media profile, likes and shares, without backlinks?

    Social media is the way to popularize your blog and more over it helps to drive traffic very easily if you write a engaging content.
