Social Media


Search engines are looking at how many people, like, share, comment, retweet and engage with your social media posts. This is has become a stronger factor in the search algorithm. Being personal, unique and the use of photos/video will tend to increase the engagement you are receiving on your posts.

Allow Content Sharing

Add a share button to all of your content to allow it to be shared on facebook, twitter, linkedin and the other popular social media sites.

Backlinks within Social Media

Your website is still the center of your online universe. It is important to place links back to your website for both users and for the search engines to increase your backlink ranking.

Social Media are Search Engines Too

Each social media site acts as a search engine unto itself. This can be another way people can locate your content and engage with your brand.

Youtube and Vimeo

Video results will show up within many search results giving your brand additional opportunity to be found. It is important that you clearly title, describe and tag each video. Also be sure to include a link back to your website with the video. Launching a channel versus loading individual videos will help to keep your content together.
