Why social media for link building?
Think of social media as a place where thousands of internet users interact with each other to build relationships. Over the past 5 years, the internet has become more and more dependent on the online social media portals. It is the same social media which brought such an uproar in Syria that can help your message go across to a wide potential audience and compel them to take action i.e. visit your website.
There is no other platform on the World Wide Web which gives as much exposure to a backlink as a social portal such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter or Pinterest does. With the rapid development of Google’s user friendly and humanlike algorithm, it may have become difficult to practice SEO and get a website ranked higher. However, with such social platforms being available to the corporate sector, you can always put your social backlinks to avail and give your SEO attempts a much natural feel. Did you know that less than 10% of search engine users actually click on paid advertisements? This leaves an entity with one choice – making strong and compelling backlinks.
Another reason why large scale corporations are using the social media for the creation of backlinks is because it really is cost-effective. You can virtually sign up for an account/alias on any social platform for free and create as many backlinks as needed. The social media thus presents itself as an economic option of producing healthy and powerful backlinks for improved results over time.
How do social links help in SEO?
Think of social media as the highway. The traffic on a highway consists of people belonging to different cities, vicinities, races and religions. Backlinks are traffic signals which help divert traffic to the relevant route – they inform the traffic present over the social media portals of the existence of a particular organization, product or service.
La Resultados – How soon should you expect profitability from social links?
Creating backlinks is not just a gimmick; it requires a proper strategy and should only be created in a limited amount. Google’s Penguin policies do not let a web portal have thousands of backlinks without any important contribution from each of them. Therefore, you are left with a limited amount of backlinks before your web portal is penalized and unranked from all search engine directories.
Following a proper backlink strategy, a page should expect more traffic the moment an effectual and forceful message is left on any one of the leading social media platforms. The stronger the platform, the healthier the produced backlinks will be and higher the chances are that you will profit from them.
