Social media and SEO work together

As we are in the information era, it is really ideal to take advantage of the technologies in improving our lives. May it be for financial, social or self-improvement reason. In early years of internet technology, blogging has become a great option to earn extra cash and connecting with people all around the globe. But as the years go by, a fairly short time indeed, blogging has evolved because of the rise of social media sites.
Blogging was then mostly dependent on SEO or search engine optimization. And connections between blogs made it even better, since you can easily get audience, even if you are not yet ranking in search engines. But most of bloggers, especially those who blog for leisure only, lost interest of blogging and entirely shift into social media, because of ease of use and interactivity.
For others who blog for business and extra income, mostly are more concerned in SEO. Since, they know SEO give their blog a huge number of visitors, without very less effort, like connecting and socializing with other bloggers or webmasters.
If you are looking to start or have been blogging, for any reason, you might want to look at these facts to take advantage of your blogs and social media.
Here are 5 Important information on how social media and SEO work together in blogging

SOCIAL MEDIA SITES ARE ALSO MICROBLOGS

Most social media sites are patterned on how a blog works. You create an account, you post a blog, you share it to people, people will comment and you create conversations and build relationships. That is entirely the concept of social media sites and blogs. But, they are called microblogs, because social media get only the important assets of blogs and done some improvement. Like, interactivity, real-time conversations, pictures and video commenting, easier connections and others, without the bulk of efforts to get it when you are blogging. But this took a large amount of opportunity for individuals to profit from their blogs. That is at least, if you want to make your blog a source of income, socializing with blogs are more profitable than your accounts on your social media site. You don’t have the ability to take advantage of the power of SEO.
So If you are blogging, take advantage of social media, but don’t neglect SEO, because both of them have advantages and disadvantages.

 

INFORMATION FLOODED BY TRENDING TOPICS, SEO MAKES IT STILL SEARCHABLE

When you post an in formation, or you found an interesting topic in social media, it is usually flooded by trending topics. If you want to look it up again, you would have to scroll back into and pass through irrelevant posts. And unlike the Google search, which is the best and the biggest search engine today, you can’t easily search back your information in your social media with ease. But if you put your information in your blog. Chances are, it can still be searchable in search engine, especially if you have done proper SEO. Thus, this give you chance to profit from your information because of your visitors to your blog, a benefit, you cannot get from social media sites.
So to take advantage of this, it is more effective to share in social media, but put it in your blog, so it will be still searchable and profitable because of SEO.

BLOG CONNECTIONS ARE MADE EASIER BY SOCIAL MEDIA

Back in the days, link exchange between blog owners takes time. Exchanging emails, coding links then checking for a link back. This is an ancient strategy that has been done by bloggers to rank in search engine. But since, google have made changes in their algorithm, there have been limits in doing link exchange. It may penalize your blog, if you abuse this, that is you lose the chance to be seen in search engines.
But today, because of social media, you can easily save time and effort for connection with other bloggers. You can easily create connections with bloggers in your niche, and exchange links by guest blogging. Just be careful who you link to, as it may as I have said, create a negative effect on your search engine results.

SEARCH ENGINES ARE LOOKING MORE ON SITES SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Though, back in the days, backlinks or links from other blogs or websites help you rank in search engine. Today, search engines, particularly, Google, are looking into sites that are usually shared on social media, or those that are highly engaging that people would love to share it in their social media account. This does not only mean Facebook as the social media, Google has its own social media, Google plus, so you better take advantage of this, because Google will simply love their own.
Once you have a new blog post, make it a habit to share it to your social media accounts and let others share it to. This will make Google look at your blog or site and put importance on your posts and eventually list it on front page of the search results if not on the top.

QUICK CONNECTIONS ARE IN SOCIAL MEDIA, BUT LASTING RELATIONSHIPS ARE IN SEO

As we have mentioned earlier, it is very easy to connect with social media. You can create relationships fast. But eventually you will be flooded under a surge of, sometimes, non-sense memes. But real business relationships are made in your blogs. Because, in your own blog, you have your own identity. And you have the freedom to do what you want, and grab opportunities of gaining income. That is something you cannot do on social media. But the thing is, take advantage of both worlds. Create relationships fast with your social media, but keep them and make them last in your blog with SEO.

IN A NUTSHELL

Blogging can be something personal, but can still be profitable. Many are making income by just blogging about their interests. Though it can get really technical setting a blog, but in the end it will be worth it. But to take advantage of your blogging, you should use the power of social media. Yes, you would like posting status updates, and gathering more likes and shares and be yourself. If you want to have more financial opportunities, you would want to make social media and SEO work for you if you want to start blogging.

  1. I'll admit, my social media skills when it comes to my blog have been bad but i've been building it up more over the past month. Thing is, ads don't make much money, the only real way I've seen is sponsored/paid posts. So i'm struggling a little with everything on the promotion side but it's all practice right? You've given us a lot of fantastic information here!

  7. A highly well-written and informative post on the relationship of SEO, social media and blog, Rene. I believe today, a blogger needs to put importance on keeping up with social media and SEO. I have seen many bloggers posting, not thinking of SEO, and posting links in Facebook blog groups, perhaps share on social media accounts, done.

    But it is more than that. Social media sites have changed their algorithms and it is in the best interest of bloggers to know these.

  9. Agreed. SEO and Social Media go hand in hand in ensuring a blog is well out there. I think one of the things bloggers don't realize is that SEO is applicable even in personal posts, it's just a matter of finding the right keywords and ensuring they're discussed well. :) Thanks for this!

  12. Wow. I used to think it's the other way around. That SEO is intial connection and social media is long-term relationship. Because with social media you can know deeper about what got you hooked using the SEO. Great thought too, that sites shared rank higher.
