How to Build Social Links to Improve your Search Engine Ranking
Social linking is quickly emerging as one of the most powerful methods to search engine optimize your site or blog. Getting links from social network sites isn’t nearly as difficult as you might think, and it is much easy to create relevant social links than it is to get relevant back links.
Thanks to recent updates by Google, you can now rank with competitive keywords simply by the use of social site links. This is especially true of Facebook, Twitter, and StumbleUpon. Manual social linking is considerably more powerful than if you take the time to submit your website on blogs. Social links gives your site exposure and in addition, it targets the right traffic.
When you are doing manual social linking some of the best social network sites to utilize include:
Of course, there are plenty of other social networking sites that you can also utilize social linking. Google and the other major search engines like social links. Google ranks pages based on how many sites you’re your content can be found on. The more the better.
Now, here comes a big ‘but’ – Whether you are planning to hire a social link building service or build your own social links, you will want to make sure that they don’t use any type of auto submission script or software to submit your site to the social network sites. It is important that Google guidelines are always followed when you are implementing search engine optimization strategies. Google does not like auto submissions so unless they are done correctly you are going to harm instead of hurt your page ranks.
Putting a like button, 1+ button, Share button, Pinterest button, etc. on your website makes good marketing sense. In fact, putting the buttons on each of your products is a good way to exponentially grow your links. Social link code is easy to install and it is highly effective, so don’t miss out on this opportunity.
This is a relatively new way to build links. Back links have always been the key to link building for search engine optimization. Social links are the ‘new kid on the block,’ but they are very quickly becoming mainstream. As search engine optimization experts recognize the power that social links have when it comes to search engine optimization and improving your ranking, they will utilize this form of link building more and more.
While Google and other search engines may update and change the rules over time, like they have done with other link building, if you building valid links and you aren’t trying to manipulate your ranking, then you should remain confident that even with changes you will be just fine.
When you think about it, it is rather exciting. After all, which one of us doesn’t use social networking, so taking it to the next level so that your website can benefit as well. Remember in addition to improving your rankings in the search engines, your social linking can increase the number of people following your site, or perhaps even just one product, and that can translate into a significant increase in paying customers. That’s a win-win for you and your site.
Social linking is relatively new and as a result, it may not be completely understood. This can mean that it may be more beneficial for you to hire a reputable social linking service to make sure you get the most out of social linking. If you choose to do it yourself, don’t worry, there is plenty of helpful information online.
