7 Legitimate Ways That Social Media Impacts SEO

7 Legitimate Ways That Social Media Impacts SEO | WebNews | Scoop.it

SEO and Google have been synonymous - while most SEO tactics and approaches are search engine agnostic, they often get tied to Google ranking. It's fairly obvious why this is the case - Google is the most popular search engine with 67.3 percent of market share according to comScore.

 

Google also addresses (and condemns) SEO efforts more frequently than toner engines. But SEO isn't just for Google, and really isn't just for search engines, either. Every social media network has some type of search functionality.

 

As social media usage has risen, so has the volume of searches on these networks (YouTube is the second largest search engine behind Google and Twitter receives 2.1 billion queries per day).

 

To understand what is popular, relevant, and credible, the search engines are turning to social media.

Marilyn Moran's curator insight, April 30, 2014 8:38 PM

Social media can impact SEO simply by encouraging natural link building. Think about it? Google doesn't want you to manufacture back links to manipulate page rank. But it's OK for others to share your content, right? Using social media so that others can find and share your content is natural and should demonstrate what Google wants to see. Of course, people will abuse that, too. Which is why engagement is key; develop and nurture relationships so there's always a genuine connection.

Blog » 5 Things to Consider When Translating a Website | Language Intelligence

Whether your company already has customers outside of the US, or you’re considering getting your feet wet in international markets, website translation is a logical first step in reaching out to those customers. In 2012 the first place your prospective customers are going to find a product or service is the internet. In the US people search in English (mostly). In Spain people search in Spanish, in China they search in Chinese (and they don’t use Google).
