Social Media vs Link Building

Social Media vs Link Building | SEO and Social Media Marketing | Scoop.it

Well, it looks like social media may be the only good strategy we have now.

Is Social Media The Answer?

I've heard some people saying that FaceBook Live is stealing viewers from YouTube. WHAT? While Facebook Live is a great addition to the platform Googles playground is so much bigger. With Google having the larger audience YouTube gets a tremendous boost simply because YouTube videos will always show up in Google searches. Furthermore, if you are searching for a how to video, I don't think it is very practical to be waiting for a Facebook Live Stream.

14 Advanced SEO Tactics That Your Competition Doesn’t Know About | SEO and Social Media Marketing | Scoop.it

SEO is more alive than ever before. 


If you want a thriving site in 2016 and beyond, you have to have a firm grasp of SEO principles. 


And if you go beyond the basics, it’s even better.

Need another reason to start taking SEO seriously? Here’s one: as SEO moves forward, many sites will stay in the past. They won’t pay attention to Google’s algorithm updates or the effect of mobile use on SEO.


But if you stay up-to-date with SEO, your site will improve by leaps and bounds while your competitors’ sites get left behind in the dust.

You can tell I’m a fan of SEO. That’s because I know the power of SEO. It’s not an outdated gimmick—it’s a long-term strategy with lasting benefits.


To get you started on the path to SEO mastery, here’s a list of 14 advanced SEO tactics your competition doesn’t know about.

Do Keywords Matter?

Do Keywords Matter? | SEO and Social Media Marketing | Scoop.it
Keyword research. The process goes something like this:

- Make a list of important topics. 
- Write important keywords under each of those topics. 
- Plug the list into Google Keyword Planner to get data and other ideas.

- Rinse, Repeat. 

What if I told you that this process is a waste of time? What if I told you that your focus should be on topics, not keywords? 

You probably already know that keyword research doesn’t matter as much as it used to.

We’re in a new era of SEO. It’s like everything that we ever knew — keywords, backlinks, etc. — is being ripped out and torn up.

Where does this leave us? What should we do instead of keyword research? What do we tell our clients? How to we get our websites to rank? Do keywords even matter? 

Neil Patel decided to answer these questions by conducting an advanced research project. Instead of going with hunches or making guesses, he crunched hundreds of thousands of data points.

5 Common SEO Schemes That Will Burn You

5 Common SEO Schemes That Will Burn You | SEO and Social Media Marketing | Scoop.it


You don’t have to use a one-size-fits-all. The diversity of different approaches that SEO offers can work for it.

There are some approaches that almost never work, to the point of being counterproductive or destructive for most brands that attempt to wield them. Why are they still around?

Some of them are obsolete practices, serving as remnants of strategies that used to work; in these cases, companies may not realize that search engines and best practices have changed.

Others are the product of wishful thinking, created by a logic that on the surface seems sound, but doesn’t reflect reality.

Following these five approaches will almost certainly burn you, so stay away from them at all costs: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/282463

Publishing fluff content 

Each piece of content you create adds a new title and a new page to Google’s index, provides more content for your users to read and search engines to index and provides more opportunities to acquire conversions and inbound links. So, it stands to reason that having more content is a good thing. The problem is, many novice search-optimizers are blinded by this thought, and start churning out content in high quantities rather than paying attention to that content’s value. 

 This is colloquially referred to as “fluff content,” and in the early days of SEO it might have helped you. Today, it will only bring down your search rankings and irritate your users, decreasing traffic and conversion rates.

Final verdict: social media does not directly contribute to page rankings; it is not a ranking signal. 

 But that doesn’t mean it can’t be used to help your SEO strategy. It is as useful as your team is creative. Set up some goals, A/B test some changes or experiments, and see how you can make the most of the relationship between social and SEO. 

 It starts, of course, with great content. Make sure your content is worth sharing before you start promoting it on social channels. Once it’s really ready, push your team outside the box—just make sure everyone remembers how social media and SEO really do work together, and how they don’t, as you develop strategies.

'The truth? Most people look at SEO the wrong way. They look at ways to do the least amount of work for the greatest initial return, when in fact, it’s quite the opposite.


Obviously SEO is one of the best skills that you can possibly learn, but in order to succeed with it, you need to do the most amount of work for the least initial return. It’s a slow, steady and painful process, but that’s also the nature of the beast.


Simply put, in the beginning, Google doesn’t trust you. If Google doesn’t trust you, you’re not going to rank on those lucrative first-page SERPs.


You’ll be lost in the fray amidst millions of others who’re trying to claw their way to the top. So, the first real guiding principle of SEO is trust.


When you have Google’s trust, you’ll consistently rank highly. When you lack its trust, you’ll be lost in an abysmal sea of low-ranking webpages. And no one wants that'.
