How To Improve Your SEO Social Indicators | Writing for Social Media | Scoop.it

What do social signals have to do with your SEO campaign? Maybe more than you think. And the divide between SEO and social media seems to shrink every day.

 

Google and Bing have both confirmed that social indicators are becoming increasingly important and that they are already being used to some degree, to create ranking results.

 

Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ are the most important to Google and, unsurprisingly, Google+ leads the way in helping to promote a site in Google rankings.

 

Choose your social sites wisely, integrate your efforts within your own site, and conduct some competitor analysis on the top performers in your industry. Then try these six techniques to improve your social indicators.

9 Companies We Admire for Creating Marketing People Love

9 Companies We Admire for Creating Marketing People Love | Writing for Social Media | Scoop.it
Check out the totally lovable marketing these awesome brands are creating.

 

Any company can "do" marketing. But the companies that can consistently create marketing people love are the companies that really get noticed.

 

Problem is, lovability is kind of a hard thing to synthesize. I mean, how do you quantify exactly why the brands you love elicit those warm and fuzzy feelings inside of you?

 

Sometimes it's their copywriting, other times it's their design sensibility, sometimes it's just the way they talk to you on social media -- but it's not the easiest thing in the world to replicate for brands out there trying to create more lovable marketing. But, we're going to try to explain it (so maybe you can replicate it) anyway.

 

This post will highlight some brands that we think consistently create lovable marketing, and explain exactly why their marketing is worthy of such adoration. And of course, this is not an exhaustive list ... please share the many other companies out there that do this in the comments.
