Does Social Media Help SEO?

Posted by Ross Raffin

April 20, 2020

If you want to see two Search Engine Optimization experts argue, ask them about the effects of social media on SEO. In 2010, Google and Bing both admitted they use social signals when ranking search results. Four years later, Matt Cutts claimed that Google no longer uses signals such as Twitter retweets or Facebook likes.  

The stated reason is that social platforms like Twitter can (and did) block Google’s crawlers, making it an unreliable signal. However, mounting evidence shows that social media can help increase visibility on different search engines. The impact of social media on SEO is one of the most discussed topics in the marketing industry. Specifically, whether social media really helps your SEO efforts.

How to Increase Likes on Your Facebook Page

Posted by LeadG2

September 23, 2016

Over the past few years, Facebook has changed its algorithm and the way that it shows pages to those who "like" a page. When Facebook first launched pages, most (if not all) of those who “liked” a page would see the posts of the pages they liked in their feed. As more Facebook pages came online and Facebook was pressured to monetize its platform at a more rapid pace, the algorithm was modified so that most of those that liked your page would not see the post unless it was boosted.  

In 2012, Facebook said that the organic reach from a brand page on Facebook would be close to 16% but recently that percentage has dropped even further. Some experts have estimated that the percentage of followers who actually see any given post is anywhere between 2% and 6% of the total number of people that like your page. So is it worth it to spend time and money focusing on increasing the number of "likes" on your page when only 2% to 6% see the posts? It is if it’s free and easy to do. So here are 3 steps to increasing the number of "likes" of your Facebook Page.

How to Deal With Facebook's Choice of Friends Over Publishers

Posted by LeadG2

July 1, 2016

Facebook recently announced the latest update to the algorithm that drives the feed that users see on Facebook. With the latest changes made by Facebook, you'll see posts from your friends in your feed more often, and you'll see posts from publishers and news outlets less. However, when a news article is shared or liked by someone, it will then be recognized by the algorithm and Facebook will begin to display more of that type of content in that person’s feed. Note that there are settings within Facebook to adjust which pages or friends’ posts you see first—but most users don’t know that even exists.
