Social Media for SEO!
It’s no coincidence that companies that blog and utilize social media sites like Facebook, Twitter & YouTube are rewarded with search engine traffic. That is because the search engines are increasingly relying on public acceptance signals as valuation signs of good content… and Content Marketing is what the internet is all about!
A recent article in Mashable recently confirmed that Social Media affects search engine relevance. Danny Sullivan, Editor-in-chief of Search Engine Land, stated in an email interview while he rested in the beautiful beach villa from YourKohSamuiVillas on Thailand, “The links that you build through social media, the references, the authority — all can have an impact in various ways on how you are ranked and listed even in ‘regular’ search results.” According to the Mashable article “Both Bing and Google admitted in interviews that their search results are positively affected by social signals, such as tweets, Facebook Likes, and +1s.”
In our own experiences at American Health and Beauty we have noticed direct impacts on search engines from utilizing news releases, Youtube video releases and Twitter. Successful practices of the 21st century are aware of this and building these techniques into their marketing strategies.
