Does Social Media Help with SEO?
ANSWER: Yes - Social Media is a new factor in the search engine ranking algorithm, but what is not known, is the weight on the scale of importance. Considering Google's new found interest in social media with the controversial launch of Google Plus, or Google+, you can bet your white hat that you better be doing your social media homework. Lets make some assumptions and dive into the mind of Google. Would you say it's a safe bet to assume that Google acquired Blogger to analyze what writers felt like writing about organically? The ability to study the blog network to better assess what's "noteworthy" or "worth a mention" from popular bloggers would make sense. Think about it. If they are writing about you on the blogs, then you are probably important, right? Lets just say, we have our theories.
Now, lets hypothesize about social media for a moment. Would you say it's safe to assume people enjoy sharing things they are passionate about with their closest friends? Would it make sense for Google to want total control of a Social Media environment in order to have complete access to this information? Would this data enable Google the ability to further analyze your online behavior to better refine the search results they serve up to Googlers. Just think about it! Anyway, on to the buttons!
