How Social Media Impacts SEO and Site Ranking: infographic | Infographics and Social Media |

Search engine optimization has not been dependent on a minimal number of factors for a long time now, such as number of times a keyword appeared on a page, and it continues to become a more complex web of on and off-page factors every month. One of the more recent factors that has had an impact on search ranking is social media.

This infographic breaks down ways that social media influences the visibility of your website in search results, including:

Venkatesh - if I am able I give my site as much media support as I can. As a social media trainer I need to 'try out' media before I can teach others to use it and give an insight into which is useful and which is not. So I tend to put my site and what I am doing out on the various social media platforms at least twice a day - I don't over emphasise my site because that can be counter productive (people switch off if all they see from you is self-promotion) and so it is keeping your presence alive but not switching off potential clients by constant ME, ME, ME. I perform both SEO services and social media training for others (see - just a bit of self promotion LOL)

Stephanie Smetana's curator insight, July 9, 2013 7:17 PM

This infographic is a great way to depict many of the articles I've previously pointed out that cover SEO and social media. It is almost easier to explain the relationship in an image format, especially for those who don't have a background in SEO.


There are many other factors that go into how much social media truly affects SEO, so there is more to be explained after this. But this is a great introductory image. It also emphasizes the speed with which social media makes an impact.

Whether we like it or not, Klout is here to stay, brands use it to find influencers who will in turn become advocates, companies use it when they're interviewing perspective employees and many of our peers pay attention to it too.


Once scrutinized for its methods and criticized as being nothing more than an online zodiac, Klout has nevertheless secured its place in the social media...


Included in this piece is a tip sheet to help you raise your score.


How does Klout measure your score?


**The number of people you influence + how much you influence them + how influential they are = your Klout Score
