Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social

Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

Since Google introduced "Search Plus Your World," most Google Search users have seen results that add more emphasis to sites shared on Google+.


One search engine marketing firm, TastyPlacement  - http://bit.ly/KBn2qJ, took it upon themselves to conduct an unscientific-ish study to determine just how much of an effect Google+ promotion has on search ranking.

 

It turns out having Google+ followers boosts the ranking the most, while a "+1" still does way more for your search ranking than Facebook or Twitter.

 

Twitter actually ranks the lowest — which, given the bickering between Google and Twitter, isn't all that surprising either.

7 Social Media Strategies Every Teacher Needs to Learn Today and Teach Tomorrow - Brilliant or Insane | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
In a world ruled by content curation, every educator should be passing along social media strategies to students. The “That’s a parent’s job” mantra is not a sufficient excuse for ignoring your responsibility here. We’re in this together.

Students must be taught early and often how to create, locate, maintain and share content. And they need to understand the ramifications of everything they do on social media.

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

A lot of words have been added to the dictionary over the past few decades thanks to social media, but few have become so widely used and accepted as "hashtag."

 

For a long time, the hashtag symbol (#) was known simply as the "pound" symbol. Now, I could swear that the only time I hear it referred to as a pound symbol is when I enter my PIN number to pay my cell phone bill. While hashtags were originally made famous by Twitter, they're now used on many major social networks, including Facebook and Instagram.

 

Let's explore what a hashtag is, why they're so great, and how they work on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram....

Social media is everywhere. Even as adults, we are always glued to our phones and goings on featured there. Students today live and breathe with social media, so why not use it to engage them in the classroom? And we know a more engaged student will retain far more information than a bored one. So where do we start?
