I learn some SEO tutorial in forum. Many guys said that there is necessary to make social signals to a new site and need to build FB page, twitter and G+ for site. But, it's a big project if I plan to build 30+ sites. Any suggestion?

    If you build these pages you will be need to take care of them and interact with your fans which means time.

    Anyway, if you have great content websites, people will share it for you on their profiles and this is the truly social media sharing.

    So for start i think the main propose must be to build great content. When you will see that your content is shared, build social pages...

    Not necessary, but the buttons do look pretty on your page. It makes it easier for people to share your content, which is good for some direct traffic.

    I guess you would have to define necessary.

    Does social media lead to more people coming to your site?

    Yes

    Does social media help build additional links to your site from other people linking to it?

    Yes

    Does social media allow you to communicate better with your visitors?

    Yes

    Does social media help you build relationships with others for better traffic opportunities?

    Yes

    If more traffic, more sales, more connections, a bigger following, and more links on related sites are something that you feel is necessary, I would use social signals with social media as much as possible.

    While Google might not have the internal tools yet to determine the impact of social media on what people like/dislike, it is likely that rankings will be heavily impacted by these within a few short years. It would seem to be a good idea to start today instead of scrambling later to create these signals.

    Yeah like Kevin said pretty buttons. Lol. But if people share your content, and it goes on THEIR FB and let's say one of their friends on their FB has a website and likes your content......then ding ding ding. They link your site on their site. Call that a natural link if you will!

    Unless you are going to do at least a baseline minimum upkeep of these social accounts...I wouldn't even bother.

    It's really important to be on all these social networks, and also I want to add few names, Instagram and Pinterest. All these are highly populated social sites and have a great importance in marketing your brand/product/site. It not only enables you to interact with you followers but it's also helpful for generating traffic and doing seo.

      Pinterest is a useless site for boosting SERP ranking if you ask me. That site is all about sharing cookie recipes and stuff. In most niches, no article that you are going to post to your site and subsequently "pin" is going to be of enough interest to the people that use that site to share.

        Why do so many people mix up backlinks with FB, twitter, and the like?

        Some people need to know the definition of a backlink. It's not posting
        or sharing on FB....pinterest...g+...etc...

        That's wrong
        I have ranked my site and it moves up and down but remains in top 3 spots, i have ranked for 40k exact keyword searches
        Am getting average 4-5K UV"s daily mostly from Google, And i only used Pinterest for ranking.. and yes pinterest won't rank recipes blog, but there are certain niches that get ranked using pinterest

    Generally social medias like Google+, Facebook, Twitter..etc will helps to drive more traffic to your website.
    The more traffic will helps to improve your Search engine rank, Alexa rank, as well as Google page rank.

    Historically, on both my sites and sites that I've worked on, the best (non-paid) traffic comes from the FB. The worst? Reddit LOL but if you can win them over with a great article, you're in.

    Can't we just leave the SEO backlinking as artificial (whitehat, grayhat, etc) and leave FB/Twitter/G+ as natural?

    Leave some portion of naturalness in backlinking/traffic in your SEO game. And to do so, you need GREAT content, so that's back to the basics...

    If you create social profiles in facebook,twitter and G+ and put it on your site, your site wll reflect that you have online presence too which is a good sign. Also visitors can share your content on social platform which will increase the social signals.

    If you find it hard to create and maintain so many social media profiles, just add the widget called "addthis" in your site. People will share your contents by their own if they likes it.
