I've read that it does not impact rankings; however I wouldn't be surprised if it will eventually or already does. Google's algorithm is becoming more sophisticated every day and they want to show websites people find useful. I think social media will end up being incorporated into SEO since in theory these are the websites people are talking about.

By the time social media eventually affect SEO ranking, then it would soon be the target of spammers trying to game the Google algo. Then, most of the websites being talked in tha social media would be no longer "useful" or "high-quality".

Just my prediction

Social media drives more traffic for the website to improve keyword ranking.

When we share content on social media site with link of website or article, that links are no-follow links. So, social links may or may not boost rankings. Sometimes we see the Facebook posts ranked on SERPs depending on the content the posts are having and that match with user query.

As per Matt cuts saying, Facebook and Twitter are treated as any other web page and so if something occurs on Twitter or occurs on Facebook and we’re able to crawl it then we can return that in our search results. So, as I said if it fulfill the user requirement then it is possible that your social post may rank.

Anyone here saying that social media impact SEO, could you please back it up with some arguments or trustful resources? Because as far as I know, social media IS NOT ranking factor in SEO (so far).

It may drive traffic to your website, but it won't affect the ranking in term of SEO.

I'm with you seodigital. I just don't see any impact with my own sites firsthand. It's kind of like saying the newspaper can help with seo, because people read an article and link to it. Ok, i guess that can happen, but in reality I just don't see the results with rankings and sites like facebook.
