Social Media Blog Tips

These are some tips for incorporating social media into the SEO and promotion strategy for your blog. This is what I do every day, in order to rank on Google, and get tons of traffic through people clicking on my links from my shares on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, etc.

This article is about how to use social media as part of an overall strategy designed to build traffic to your site from the search engines, and from direct clicks on the links you post or tweet. 

To start with, you need to get some friends, fans, followers, or a way to get access to someone who has some of those things. These are the social media commodities, which are people, real users who are looking at the things you share. 

This is the main benefit of having tens of thousands of Twitter followers like I do on my largest account, and that is that when you tweet something, somebody immediately clicks on the link. 

I usually get about a dozen clicks once I finish one round of tweeting to my followers and more than that once I've done my Facebook sharing and Google Plus shares. 

If you control a large volume of people on social sites, and you have access to their dashboards, you have access to their eyes and to their clicks, and so you get a larger and larger amount of potential traffic the more friends and fans and followers you have.

This much is obvious, but what should also be obvious is that Google pays attention to the amount of social links that get made, as they have even said so themselves that social signals are going to play a more important role in the ranking of sites in the future, the future being now.

The SEO Benefit Of Social Signals And Shares

When somebody is getting shared by a hundred people a day on Twitter and Facebook and Google Plus, as well as having blog posts written about them on authority sites and getting random links from the description of You Tube videos and that sort of thing, that's how you rank a site on Google these days.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. Google like to see the links being made as though they were being made by real people, which means that a certain percentage of the links would be social, as more often than not, people don't have a blog, and the only way they can share a good link is with their friends on Facebook, one of the only sites they're actually able to share things on. 

If you are extremely popular among regular people, you would expect to see at least a few shares a day or tweet showing up. This is one of the ways that Google can tell the difference between someone who is legitimately popular, and someone who just likes building tons of spam links to themselves. 

I think you see what I mean, anyway check out my social media blog for more great tips on how to get the best results from your social media campaigns, and get in touch with me if you want any help.
