    Only social media websites wouldn't rank you well, you need to have quality content and quality backlinks.

    Use social media to get traffic not for rankings.

    Anyways G+ , Facebook, Twitter are top 3.

    Social Media is not useful for SEO but they will help you to get traffic and on this way more possible natural backlinks which will affect your SEO.

    So, the answer is:

    - No, Social Media doesn't affect SEO directly.
    - Yes, Social Media affect SEO indirectly.

    Now, what Social Media? Well, most of the people would recommend the diamond triangle: Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Everybody knows that, so there is nothing innovative in that answer.

    I recommend always using Reddit, because is not only Social Media but kind of like a forum with different subReddits or topics in where people comment, post and link.

    If your website is about photography, Pinterest is a very interesting choice as well.

      I go to sleep earlier, so I get up earlier and can do more work.
      My hard work leads to more links and promotion.

      So, the answer is:

      - Yes, Going to bed early will affect SEO indirectly.

      Pinterest? Even going to bed early would do more for
      SEO than that one. Well, you can't do less than
      nothing, I suppose. FB, twitter, might have a
      smidgeon of seo residuals, but pinterest has
      none.

    Social media sites doesn't directly has an effect on your SEO rankings.
    However, social media sites help your site to increase its online presence and reach more potential prospects. But if you're thinking of that getting a backlink from social media site is beneficial, then no, it is not. Social media site is more like a link sharing site, and to avoid spamming and link manipulation, links from social media sites are set to not pass link juice or nofollow.

    Every now and then I hear this query. People are so much obsessed with it.
    If you are looking for brand awareness, outreaching to your type of your audience, getting much exposure for your online business then social networking sites are your thing. But if you are looking for rankings, organic search traffic than they are not. Its very simple.

  • Social media links are not helpful for getting rank in the google. However, they provide the increasing number of visitors to your website, only if you have good content! Therefore, create links and share on social media to get more visitors!

    Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are mainly used by IT solutions for SEO ranking of their websites. You can also try anyone among these. All of these are emerged as the best platform for marketing.

        Social signals are a part of SEO. There is no getting away from it.

        If anybody wants to know why people like you want others to believe social media doesn't work, see some of the comments above by Yukon.

        People alike Yukon are always talking about "SEO for clients"

        These guys sell SEO to clients.All they do is blast out some GSA links to their client sites and increase SERPs.Why would they spend time on maintaining social media accounts unlike someone who works on their own sites?

        But social signals do help in SEO. Tried and tested.

        And stop calling others Idiots when you yourself have no clue how things work.Still using techniques that worked years ago ?Read up moron and stop talking BS.

            Lets do it.Open challenge.You make a single one page article on a wordpress blog about a topic for a particular topic for a chosen keyword.I do the same for the same keyword.

            You do not build any backlinks to your page.

            I do only social media linking on my page.(FB page,twitter,G plus,pinterest,linkedin)

            Lets see who ranks.

            ITS AN OPEN CHALLENGE .COMMON.

              Dude, are my questions too hard for you? I'd love to know how you do your magic. Or at least what you're actually talking about.

              So you're talking about creating a new empty blog site each, right? Otherwise the internal link structures of the sites would be ranking the articles. And your rules state that the other guy in this "challenge" isn't allowed to do anything to rank "his" site. It's kinda hard to see the point of having some random forum dweller to set up a control copy for your ranking study because that's what you're describing here.

              What exactly would you prove here? That doing nothing is worse than doing something even if it's pretty ineffective?

    When you want to use social media for your website then think first, Maximum of them are No-Follow [you can't find any back-links there in Social media], And you know that, which are the best. Now, you need to do something interesting on there. As a result you'll get a high traffic through them.

      These sites don't link to any of the user pages to a way that's easy for Google to parse. Often the content is behind logins. The structures are sort of convoluted, and the content falls of from the profile page quickly.

      Most of the pages, even publicly visible profile pages, are also weak when it comes to backlink value. This point is moot because of the nofollow, but still.

      You have no idea what you're talking about, do you? Marketing and outreach are the only things that you can do on these sites that'll somehow affect your SEO, but even that's indirect.

          Wrong

          Linkedin does give DOFOLLOW links. You can actually publish a post on Linkedin just like you would in a WordPress blog and link to your money site from the post with a DOFOLLOW link.
          Try doing that from a strong profile with lots of connections and get the post to go viral on Linkedin and tell me it doesn't help in SEO.

          Stop generalising... Try out stuff. Experiment a little..

                You ignored my entire post.

                What is the point of a dofollow link from some random page (out of tens of thousands of random pages) on LinkedIn? That page that your link is on has no authority.

                The point is that if you can make a lot of connections and make something go viral, you don't need it to be on LinkedIn, it can be anywhere.

                  Of course it can be anywhere.
                  On Facebook, Twitter, Google plus.

                  Try saying that to the self proclaimed gurus in this forum. They will tell you they are useless since they are all Nofollow links.

                  Fair enough.

                  But LinkedIn has DOFOLLOW links. So what's the excuse now? Are these links too useless?

                    No, it doesn't have to be on any of those sites, it can be on your own website or blog. THAT is the point. If you have a way to engage people and make something go viral, you can do it from anywhere. It being on LinkedIn or Facebook or your own small website makes no difference.

                    Try saying that to the self proclaimed gurus in this forum. They will tell you they are useless since they are all Nofollow links.
                    And I would agree with them.
                    But LinkedIn has DOFOLLOW links. So what's the excuse now? Are these links too useless?
                    Yes, they are useless. I think you are confusing the high authority homepage of LinkedIn, let's just say PR-8 for example, with the profile page that you just made, which is a PR-0 and has no authority whatsoever.

                    A dofollow link from 1 profile page (out of 400 million, literally) is worthless.

                    If you were to get a link from the LinkedIn homepage, that would be great. But putting a link on one of the hundreds of millions of profile pages puts you right in the middle of hundreds of millions of other links, and your single link will be as worthless as all the rest.

                I'm not actually sure if they do, but I can't bother to check. Have you ever checked LinkedIn's page structures? Even if a post is visible in some place (where?) the whole site is so convoluted that it's basically guaranteed to get zero link juice. A link isn't good just because it happens to be on a famous site that has a strong front page. Most article pages are just incredibly weak, and articles in profile feeds do not help.

                If you think I'm wrong do show a good article backlink on a strong page. That's all it takes. Throwing around straw men about "self-proclaimed gurus" just makes you look bad.

                It's possible that you're technically correct on the nofollow thing, and still completely wrong on those links being useful.

                You have no clue as to how the internet works, much less google.

                There's trillions of dollars of gold in seawater.
                Has no bearing on reality.

                Do you even know how linkedin works?

                Obviously not.

                Okay, here's the translation:

                The links you see without logging in,
                are not even links.

                If there are links in your profile that linkedin
                does not put their redirect in, makes no
                difference. You have to login to see them.

                Google never sees them.

                I ask this question again: Do you people have any
                idea how the internet works?

                Linkedin gives you zero backlinks.

                  "You have to login to see the links on Linkedin" ?
                  "Google never sees them" ?
                  "Linkedin gives you zero backlinks" ?


                  Every time you guys bark nonsense, I have to find a live example and spoon-feed it to you ignorant morons.(remember the Disqus comments thread ?)

                  So there you go.

                  Below is an example of a Linkedin post(just an example)

                  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-i...eNoSplash=true



                  "You have to login to see the links on Linkedin" - Wrong (You dont even need a linkedin account)

                  "Google never sees them" - Wrong (The post is indexed in google)

                  "Linkedin gives you zero backlinks" - Wrong (there is a DOFOLLOW external link in the post)



                  Run to Yukon for help now.
                  Or just change the topic and start discussing about how these links have 0 authority etc etc.

                    Yeah, I remember that thread. You went all over the place just like you do here just to get your ass handed to you. I'm not sure why you'd like to remind us of that, but whatever floats your boat.

                    About the LinkedIn Pulse... How is it constructed? Does Pulse (without logging in) take selected posts from carefully chosen group of entrepreneurs? Because it sure looks like a curated list. I can recognize some of the names because of the personal brands of these individuals. I can't see any "normal" users even when logged in.

                    If you open a random article (tried this with couple of articles from some of my contacts) you get the same generated Pulse feed, but the article you opened sits at the top.

                    Did you look at how the page actually functions? Did you even take a look at the HTML source?

                    The actual Pulse page has got only one story, and if you scroll any further the system starts to dynamically change the URL. There's a handful of posts that are on the right-hand side of that page on any particular moment (and in the HTML source), and the rest is again generated dynamically. The category archives are even weirder than the front page. This is the worst kind of archive structure that you can think of from SEO point of view. The individual pages probably get indexed by Google, but I can't see how these articles are even linked from an archive. And being in some sort of crawlable archive is the bare minimum for the page to get any link juice from LinkedIn.

                    But as I said, they're not even linking your article, but something from a bunch of rockstar entrepreneurs or possibly advertisers instead. The Pulse is constructed to push a bunch of articles to anyone who opens something from their contacts.

                    How do you think that the link juice flows from LinkedIn's strong pages to those blog pages? I, for one, can't see any clear path.

                    Sure, the links are "followed" and you can get sort of a backlink this way. It's still doesn't seem like a good backlink to me. It's practically an orphaned page.

                    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
                    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

                    What's your excuse?

                      Because he is still under the typical spammer impression that any link is good and he thinks a link from the bowels of a big site actually matters.

                    I clearly explained how you are wrong, yet you ignored my post. You conveniently ignored it because it proved that what you say is false, and you have no way to refute it.

                    You are completely clueless about backlinks,

                    as if stating the same wrong conclusion will
                    somehow make it true.

                    It won't.

                    Newsflash: You do not know what pulse is.

                    And because you don't, it shows your ignorance.

                      You are still wrong because you said LinkedIn doesn't give DOFOLLOW back links. But they DO.

                      Think before you speak. Like I said last time theory doesn't work if you don't test it out.

    Social media sites do NOTHING to increase ranking, sites like FB, Twitter etc will give you brand awareness and DIRECT traffic. You can get quite a lot of traffic from social media sure, but none of it will increase search rankings.

    The top ones are always G+ and Facebook. Twitter is big too. As long as your content gets shared on social media, that will always be a help to your rankings.

        You're the one who should really listen to this advice.

        What part of my post did you not understand? The flow of link juice is not the most intuitive thing out there, but it's also not rocket science. The result of a test would be ranking something, not just seeing a link in your backlink checker.

        So what do you mean by "social signals"? Are you talking about backlinks here? Because some people do talk about that while others claim that the likes and +1s affect something. I refuse to call backlinks "social signals". With links there's a fairly well-known mechanism that we can understand and see in action.

        Yes, this backlink stuff has essentially remained the same for years. That's not an argument.

        You know, your comments would carry a little more weight if you stopped shouting "morons!" all the time, and stopped littering your comments with these kinds of asinine straw men. You come across as someone who's got no idea how SEO actually works. Do you really think that a long-time SEO practitioner would point something like GSA on a client site? That's the stuff you can find on sites like Fiverr.

        Some agencies who sell SEO also coordinate other web marketing efforts, and if they don't maintain the social media profiles they fairly often coordinate with the people who do. SEO is just a small part of the marketing palette in any case.

        What kind of signals are you talking about? Which sites? What's the mechanism?

        I got that we disagree on LinkedIn, so no need to bring that up.

        I don't need case studies or "proof" in that sense, but I'd like to understand what you're even trying to say here. We've got enough one-line posters who say that it just works. Being more verbose or abrasive doesn't mean that you've said anything worthwhile.

      Actually lol'd to this. There's no mechanism whatsoever that could make this work, and you can't possibly pinpoint a single event behind a change in the search engine rankings. This is clearly a false pattern, but seeing patterns where none exists is a feature of the human brain. Google for apophenia.

      Apologies if you were posting this for laughs.
