Social Signals is such a great term when we understand it’s meaning. Deeper than tweets and shares related to an article or piece of content. Within our daily lives we stumble upon many actions we give off and receive from people in our lives.
A cashier at the checkout with the attitude signals to us that you may not shop their again. A construction worker who holds the door for an older person at the convenience store signals you to take notice of his uniform. These are all great signals of trust, right?
If Google does not use social signals in its rankings or at least start to use them more in the near future, how relevant can its search results really be? It doesn’t take a world class detective to tell you that social signals will factor in SEO for years to come. But will we be thinking of Google when we are are considering them?
