Why Social Signals Should be Your New BFF - Brandpoint.com

Why Social Signals Should be Your New BFF - Brandpoint.com | Simply Social Media | Scoop.it

So what are social signals? Social signals are any type of link from a social media site connected to your blog or website. Some social signals include +1s on Google+, likes on Facebook and retweets on Twitter. For example: If you were on Brandpoint’s Twitter page and retweeted our tweet promoting this blog, you have given Google a social signal.


Why social signals are important, and why should they be your new BFF


Going back to our example, your social signal means you found the content of this blog valuable and worth reading, and Brandpoint to have authority on the subject of social signals, because you’re willing to share our content with your social networking community.


Because of Google’s wishy-washy answers on whether or not social signals are or are not a part of its algorithm, no one exactly knows how strong a role they play in organic SEO. All digital marketers can conclude is that social signals definitely do something positive, and the strength of their effect has grown stronger over time. The more social signals you receive, the more Google knows you have authority on the subject in your brand’s space, and the trust of your audience and consumers. Here’s the equation....

Do you remember your first website? I wish I had a screen shot of mine. I have part of GeoCities and it was an unholy mess, bright yellow if my memory serves me correctly.Fast forward a few years to 2006 and I had a really lovely Flash website in orange and silver, with sliding doors that opened and closed when you changed pages. They even made swishing sounds as they opened and closed. I had lots of traffic, or what I thought was a lot of traffic and all the visitors loved playing with those sliding doors.Of course no one ever called, we didn’t have our phone number on the site and when we finally got around to adding it we put it at the bottom of the page because we didn’t want people to think they had to ring us right away… Did I mention I have a business degree? No? Good, because you wouldn’t think it from the downright ridiculous things we had (or didn’t have) on our website....
