Social media and SEO: What you need to know - Adam Houlahan

Social media and SEO: What you need to know - Adam Houlahan | Blogging, Social Media & Tools | Scoop.it
Using social media for business marketing is not the only reason to embrace social platforms for commercial reasons. Social media is also a great tool to use for search engine optimisation (SEO). What is SEO? SEO, or search engine optimisation, is the process digital marketers use to encourage organic traffic online to a particular website. It requires having your website and content appearing high in search engine results, and it doesn’t involve payment for this to the search engines. SEO requires the clever and strategic use of various techniques, tactics and tools to increase the number of visitors to a website. This is done by affecting a placement of high ranking in search results. Since the majority of internet users conduct searches online and rarely look beyond the first page of results given, it is crucial for businesses to be on page one of their search result in order to be seen by the highest number of online users. The higher a website ranks in search engine results, the more likely it will be visited by users – it’s that simple. By undertaking search engine optimisation, a website is more accessible to a search engine and to end users –more info

Promote your small business locally on social media - Adam Houlahan | Blogging, Social Media & Tools | Scoop.it
While it’s certainly true that, thanks to the internet, even the smallest business can be a global contender, many small businesses have their focus on local markets. When local consumers can find you online, your business can grow a loyal customer base – and let’s face it, many of us prefer to support local businesses when we can. One way to achieve this is via local search engine optimisation – making a small investment in digital marketing go a long way. And one of the most cost-effective ways to promote your business on the internet is through clever social media marketing. Why local? According to market research, more than 80 per cent of consumers use the internet to source local businesses – and to compete, a local business needs online visibility. Buying locally, or using a local service provider, saves money and is highly convenient. While there are numerous ways to affect great search engine optimisation results, one of the easiest and cleverest ways to enhance your overall digital marketing strategy is to take advantage of social media marketing. Social media is a fantastic way to spread the message about your business, brand and website. Google+, Facebook and LinkedIn, formore info
