Social Media Strategies to increase your website traffic
If Social Media and especially Google+ isn’t already part of your marketing mix you could be missing out big time.
One personal Google+ endorsement from someone you know can easily outrank endorsements from 10,000 strangers.
Google is injecting social G+ results into nearly every Google Social search.
Jumping to a first-page ranking solely because someone put you in a G+ circle?
That’s a benefit no one can afford to ignore.
Push the +1 button on your site wherever you can.
The relationships we forge in the online “Social Network” world now have a huge impact on our search results.
Every new follower you get may see your brand’s site in his or her SERPs in the future, so it’s in your own best interest to try and ramp up your follower count.
Everything you write or share can pop up in your followers’ search results – even if they’re not a member of the social site you shared the link on.
Google+ is emerging as a champion heavyweight in search results as even casual G+ posts are showing up in search results.
Tweeting your content really helps your content to get indexed faster and setting your blogs to automatically post on Google+ and LinkedIn, etc. will get you indexed even quicker. http://www.twitter.com
Facebook & LinkedIn Sharing
Social media shares work by granting you endorsements similar to direct inbound links to your site. But now shares have the added benefit that if someone shares your content, the sharer’s entire network will see the post by searching for relevant material in Google Social Search. That’s using the power of othes user’s networks.
Pinterest sends nearly as much referral traffic as Twitter (and more than YouTube, G+, and LinkedIn combined), but did you know Google now crawls pins and boards?
So get On Pinterest!
