Seven of the ten most important factors in SEO ranking now come from social media.

An updated study from Searchmetrics has revealed just how important social media signals are to a strong SEO ranking, with well-positioned URLs almost always having a high number of likes, shares, tweets and +1s.

Searchmetrics have documented their findings in this infographic, which takes a closer look at what well-positioned web pages on Google have in common, and what distinguishes them from pages that are lower-ranked.

How Social Media Impacts SEO and Site Ranking: infographic

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

  • Social media can help search engines find and index your content faster
  •  Likes, shares, retweets, etc. indicates to search engine that content is new and interesting, often leading to a temporary increase in rankings
  • Your content will increase in search results for people connected to you
  • Increases domain authority and the number of inbound links to your website
Jayne Courts's comment, May 22, 2013 3:54 AM
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.

8 Informative SEO Infographics

8 Informative SEO Infographics | visualizing social media |
Getting SEO right is, in my opinion, a quite challenging task. SEO isn’t an exact science and many consider it art to get top keyword rankings. The amount of content talking about SEO is overwhelming and for untrained people it it’s often difficult to find the best way through the SEO jungle. This is where SEO infographics serves a purpose other than just looking good. If you use WordPress as your platform combined with a modern SEO friendly WordPress theme it will also be good for your SEO.

Google change their algorithms daily and it is critical to stay up-to-date about what strategies to use. A lot of SEO material is outdated or even wrong. Be careful about what you are implementing and make sure it is always natural, value based and aligned with Google guidelines. This also means that even awesome looking SEO infographics may teach wrong techniques. In worst case this can harm your rankings and website traffic.

[Infographic]  Evolving SEO tactics: longer posts, Google+ and the tilde | visualizing social media |

This is an infographic about current SEO thinking with tips and tools to help sites rank better on search engines.

Most people have a general idea of how to optimize their content for search engines. That search engine algorithms are proprietary and evolving inevitably causes different opinions on SEO. Of course there’s another school of thought that minimal keyword research and a green-light from a SEO plugin are enough to publish a piece.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, May 2, 2013 12:52 PM
Great comment MizWalidah. I wold modify one point. Instead of "continually optimizing your meta keywords and tags" I would find ways to ping in fresh content such as User Generated Content from reviews or comments. Once a website I've SEOed is inside of Google's algorithm changing meta values that matter (mostly the page's title) can HURT SEO. I change titles VERY VERY carefully since the first rule of SEO is DO NO DAMAGE. The QDF (Quality Deserves Freshness) movement post Panda and Penguin LOVES it when a page pings, so I love the 1% of visitors who are willing to comment, review or otherwise contribute User Generated Content.

I DON'T play with meta nearly as much as you imply since to do so can look SPAMMY and cause real harm. The most important idea is creating content other people want to share. This is why I love GAMES and CONTESTS especially for bands. High engagement content such as Contests and Games can help with SEO and they can help create a distinct brand all bands need. Appreciate your enthusiasm, but be careful about meta (especially title) changes. Marty

Search engines rate a site based on the relevancy of content and therefore, one of the primary factors for ranking on search engines is having quality and user friendly content.

As shown in this infographic, content fuels Google organic traffic with 92% marketers in support of having effective content for seo.

Courtesy of my colleague @RBLevin: "Content moves from "king" and a vertical ("content marketing") to the centerpiece of communications. Good ideas are no longer enough. PR shops need to be able to ideate, create, collaborate (internally and with media), copyright (yes, the client can own what the media publishes), publish, orchestrate, marshal, and measure their stories"

How to Improve Google Page Quality Scores

How to Improve Google Page Quality Scores | visualizing social media |
How to Improve Google Adwords Quality Scores...

Google always wants to make sure that the most qualified pages are showing up in their queries. This makes sure that users get the most relevant sites regarding content, combined with the best navigation and ease of use. Its quality score is an estimation of how relevant your landing page, keywords, and ads are to the keyword you’re targeting. It also relates to the people viewing your content, where your ad will be located on the page, and how much Google is going to charge you for your ad location.
High quality scores (7-10) result when Google deems your landing page, keywords, and ads as something worthwhile for people to check out. It means that each of these things are useful and highly relevant to the keywords you’ve purchased. The great thing about high quality scores is that they lower your click costs.
Low quality scores (1-5) happen when the same sources mentioned above is held in low-esteem by Google, because it regards your site as non targeted or irrelevant to viewers.
Keywords are essential to your quality score, and some effective ways to use keywords to your benefit are: keyword choice, grouping similar words together, and selecting the right amount. Your ads should be highly targeted, and make sure your landing page is based on these three factors: relevant and original targeted content, transparency, and ease of navigation...
