Default Facebook Links And Traffic

SEO people say that links from social networking sites such as Facebook rate highly with Google. If this is true do they also apply a higher weighting to traffic received from Facebook etc also?

Facebook Links gather traffic because facebook is one of the biggest user social media site. It is important that the links you post on facebook have design to have quality information.

Hello SimplyCritical,

I do believe you should know that NoFollow Links are the links that doesn't really followed by the Search Engines. Facebook and all other Social Networking sites had their links to be No Follow. I think Google will not rate it high. Where did you hear that news/information?

Natural Search Results feeding from some informational site is far more honored by Google than Social Networking sites links.

Thanks Macky

I've looked around and it seems you're right. I've pasted a link below to htmlforums which backs up what you said.

If Google were going to give extra weight to any social media links -- and I'm not saying they definitely do, only "if" they did -- it only makes sense that the social media site they'd choose would not be Facebook (their rival), but rather Google+, eh?

Ya according to me it will help you to increase traffic but it will generate short term traffic only.

Exactly what Ryan said. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter and G+ don't transfer link juice in a classic way as do other links. However, being authority on those social networks (Having many followers, fans, being in many peoples circles, being tweeted often etc.) influences how search engines, especially Google perceive a website.
