Social media continues to grow in its impact for reaching audiences near and far. For your marketing campaign, this must have tool works only as well as its search engine optimization (SEO). After all, SEO gets you noticed by Google and its cohorts which turns consumers’ heads in your direction.
Creating a reputable social media profile can encourage followers directly, resulting in more people connecting with you and visiting your website, or indirectly by having an extra resource pointing to pages on your site.
Why is SEO relevant on social media? Because not all social media platforms work off the same internal search engine. Therefore, each channel may require its own unique touch for optimizing SEO.
Keep reading to see how you can boost SEO through social media:
To maximize your search engine exposure on Facebook (FB), the title and description come vitally into play. Your FB page name needs to be clear, the name of your company for example, as this will appear as your search title. See below:
The About section wording needs to be informative, succinct and include a link to your website as this becomes your description. Plus, selecting a username provides a recognizable, user-friendly URL rather than a crazy string of characters.
Finally, adding links, fans and like buttons boosts SEO on this platform. Going beyond the About section, you should link to FB from your website. Take it a step further by placing FB like-buttons on your site and blog posts to encourage sharing. As you boost your fan base, SEO improves.
Connecting with people in your industry niche is a specialty of Twitter. Put yourself in the game with a clear profile picture and a good description to increase trust and build a gaggle of followers with genuine interest.
One more? Tweet. Tweet. Tweet again. But, always with creative and useful messages. The more innovative thoughts you share via Twitter, the more the followers line up. Add photos and videos for even greater SEO impact.
