Default Article: Which Social Media Platforms Should You Use For SEO?

It may seem like getting more popularity on social media could feasibly improve your rankings, but that's not how Google's algorithm works. So why is social media still important for SEO? Because it has a number of peripheral benefits for your search optimization strategy: See more at: http://www.searchengineguide.com/jay...should-you.php

If your business is B2B business then go for Linkedin. However if yours is a B2C go for Twitter or Facebook or Instagram. The reason I give more weightage to Linkedin in case of B2B is because it has high number of corporate professionals. On the other hand on Twitter and Facebook you can connect on ground customers.

Thanks for the article, I can't speak much on the SEO, but I find some social media sites work better than others depending on your area of concentration.

For example - Instagram isn't the best for business or marketing advice, as you're not selling a specific product. Imagine scrolling through info graphics and charts on your Instagram feed?

Thanks for the share. And I agree with Sam, I think it's about what your type of business and target audience is.

I have a doubt for the same. Thanks for making it clear @Logan.

Google+ will also help to promote a product as the follower increases. At the same time LinkedIn plays a major role to promote a business to right candidate.

Thanks for sharing the link. Even I think still Social Media Post helps to improve the ranking and traffic of the website. Doing Social Media will help you to generate brand awareness, attract new visitors for your business.

It can happen. I've had newspaper articles written about my business that included links to my website. The interview for the newspaper article would never have happened without the exposure and branding that occurred solely through social media/facebook. I wasn't promoting the business in any other way, outside of word of mouth, so I'm sure it can lead to links and improving seo in a round about way. Not always, though.

Because we are living in the world of sharing and connection, so Google also changes its algorithms to social networks. That is a good place for all of us to share and earn much benefits from social nets. LinkedIn, facebook and twitter are #1.
