Quality Social Media SEO

Quality social media SEOIf you are serious about social media marketing, and SEO, and the combination of the two, you need certain things that a guy like me can help you with.

For example, you need some likes and followers that will stick, from real people. I get them through social swapping sites, and it’s incredibly easy to order.

A typical email sent to me:

Hi Rowan, I have a couple of new sites up and running that i would like to boost it’s popularity before i do a little networking. I am looking for a package price to get 200- 250 likes and followers on each account and maybe google+ later on.

(This is followed by links to five different social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus).

My reply:

I could probably do all of that for fifty dollars, you can send the money to me via my Pay Pal email address rowancasey@bigpond.com, log into Pay Pal and click send money, then enter that as the recipient, choose services, and 50.00 US, or I can send you an invoice, or there are also Pay Pal buttons on the site.

Social Media SEO

It takes a bit more effort to try to rank a social media page on Google. I discuss that in more detail in this article on how to do SEO for a Facebook page.

It involves linking to your page from within the site, and from outside the site, but only from the highest quality, authority, relevant pages.

There is no point in building links to your site for the sake of links, as Google will punish sites that have back links built from “link farms“, which is pretty much any site that doesn’t look like it was made by a million dollar company.

What I mean by that is you will get a good link from Ezine, HubPages, Yahoo Contributor Network, eHow, etc, and there are some really good authority blogs that you can write guest posts on.

If you try to build tons of links from spam blog comments and forum posts, (which some people still do), it doesn’t work at all, in fact it works in reverse, which is the only reason I can think of that people are still doing it.

There’s all this software around that was made for use before the Panda and Penguin algorithm updates and seeing as these softwares do nothing but damage your rankings now, I guess they are being used just as much to do reverse SEO.

Anyway, I can help you with all of that, writing high quality articles and getting them published on the highest authority sites, but it doesn’t come cheap, as they have to be of the highest quality standards.

If you feel like this article was written well, then I’ve succeeded in my job of showing you that I can write in good English.

I’m actually writing this article to link to my Yahoo Voices article, which then links to a guest post I did, and that links to a page on my first site, which then links to my secondary site, which I’m trying to rank for buy Facebook fans, and I’m still on the third page of that search.

Why would I go to such tremendous effort to try to rank a site? Because there are so many people searching for that phrase, if I was first on the first page of that search, I would have so many orders coming in, I’d be rich.

I find that I don’t have enough time to do that as well as run another SEO campaign I’m doing, and do my Fiverr gigs, and fill orders for people for likes, followers, views, shares, etc.

I’m so busy, I don’t really have the time to write this article at all, but somehow I am finding the time, and that’s how you found me, if you’ve read this far.

So, go back up the top, take a look at what I said there, you will find my email address, or you will also find it in the sidebar. Get in contact with me to talk about what I can do for you in terms of quality SEO and social media marketing services.

SEO Tips For Social Media Pages

SEO For Social Media

Often as a social media manager, I see people coming to me with social pages which haven’t had much thought put into them, or they just seem to have be made because the owner of that business was told they needed a Facebook page and a You Tube video, and so they made one.

The most common mistake I see is a small business who chooses the title of their Facebook page to be exactly their company name, or even just the URL of the website.

This might be a good idea if you’re a celebrity, and expect lots of people to be searching you out by name, but for most small businesses and websites, the URL or exact title of your website or company will have zero exact match searches a month worldwide on Google, and what you are actually aiming for first, is a Facebook search.

That’s what people don’t get, you have the chance with your Facebook page to rank first on the first page of a Facebook search on “internet marketing”, “social media marketing”, or “SEO”, or pretty much any other keyword you want that isn’t taken over by a celebrity.

What makes it so easy to compete for searches on Facebook? There is barely any competition in terms of people actually competing to appear at the top of Facebook searches, and it is very easy to manipulate the Edgerank algorithms, simply by getting a few thousand random likes, and likes on posts and photos.

If there are seventeen pages that are ahead of yours for a search on lawyers in New York, (as an example), and the only difference between your page and theirs is that they have more Facebook fans, and have a few more photos, and likes and comments on their photos, then that’s what you need to do to beat them.

Then, if somebody does search for a lawyer in New York on Facebook, (and it is becoming more common for people to do their searching without leaving to go to Google), then your page comes up.

There are similar metrics that determine what pages appear at the top of a You Tube search, such as the bounce rate, but due to the fact that Google own You Tube, and that it’s based on so many different factors, I wouldn’t claim to be able to tell you how to rank a You Tube video first on either a You Tube or Google search.

How To Rank A Social Media Page On Google

I wouldn’t say that I knew for certain how to guarantee rankings of a Facebook page in a Google search, but I can tell you what I’ve found works for me. The same things I talk about on Facebook could be applied to any other social media site.

The first thing you need to realize is that Facebook is a PR 9 site, and is the largest, highest authority site in the world. That doesn’t mean that each of the sub-pages of the site has that much authority, but it means that you’re starting off in a good place.

You have to get cross links as one of the main things to show that your site is one of the more important sites on Facebook. Links within Facebook itself to other pages inside the site are do follow, and many of these pages are high page rank, and that link weight passes on through those cross links.

It’s just a matter of how many of them you can get, how relevant they are, and how high a page rank they have. Sure there is not as much SEO benefit from a PR 6 do follow relevant authority link when it’s within the same domain, but that does not mean it’s not still a massively beneficial link to have.

My strategy has been to make multiple Facebook pages, and link them all together in a cross linking pyramid. I do this by using Facebook as the second page to link to the first by pressing the edit page button and clicking on the use Facebook as this page button.

Then, I have made a permanent one-way link in the likes section of the second page to the first one. By building back links and other cross links to the second page and getting thousands of random likes for it, I build up the page rank of the second page which passes on link juice to the first page and makes it look like a big important page on the largest site in the world.

When people ask me what benefit likes and followers have, this is just one of the many things that random likes and followers can do to help benefit your business: actually help you rank a page on Google for a massive search using an easy to follow formula.

The social proof and social interaction benefits of likes and followers are not to be ignored either, I get hundreds of unique views a day from my random Twitter followers, but that’s another story, for another post.

Hopefully that explained a bit about how SEO works slightly differently on social media sites. Stay tuned by liking my Facebook page or get in contact with me via my email address, (it’s in the sidebar) to get more information on how to get viral traffic from Facebook.

SEO And Social Media Sharing

Social Sharing And SEOOK, so this post is about the benefit of social sharing on SEO. I can prove it pretty much, I just saw a page with hundreds of social shares on it and it was only written a few months ago.

It was a PR 4, and it wasn’t even a really big page on the site. The social shares from Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Stumble Upon, Pinterest, Digg, Linked In, etc really add up.

Some of those are classified as social bookmarking sites, and some of those are classified as social media or social networking sites.

It doesn’t really matter that much, so long as they have some degree of authority in the eyes of Google.

For example they would not really value a social share on a social media site that nobody has ever heard of, that is a PR 0 or whatever.

I no longer share on My Space, simply because it takes too much time, although I probably should think about doing that, because it’s still a recognised site, even if the links are no follow, and nobody’s looking at them anyway.

It depends on whether you take the time to build up a decent following on your social accounts as to how valuable they are.

The SEO Benefit Of Social Shares

Because, social friends and followers are links back to your profile, and within the social media site itself, it’s a do follow, high page rank cross link, which means that you can rank really highly for that social page, and get a high page rank.

The page rank does not get transferred in a link from a social media site, because it is no follow, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not still valuable.

Google does take into account the social signals or authority of the Facebook accounts and Twitter accounts that are sharing your pages, so it does actually play a role in ranking your site how many Twitter followers you have.
