What does social media have to do with SEO? At MWI we hear many of these inquiries from current and prospective clients. While social media has become a growing channel for marketing in recent times, many firms haven't yet begun to profit from it. This is especially important when you're investing in search engine optimization. While the benefits of social media might not be immediately obvious, they are crucial for SEO help. Here are five reasons social media is crucial for SEO.

1) Social Media Signals
It's not difficult to see that Google, Bing, and other search engines use online conversations in their algorithm for ranking. A social engagement is when people comment, like or share a tweet about a piece of content. A piece of content that has more social engagements will have more social signals. Search engines analyze these signals from social media, and consider it an indicator of quality when ranking content. This allows search engines to identify what content people consider to be most valuable and also what they consider to be good quality. A piece of content can be immediately indexed if it's receiving a lot of engagement on social media.

2.) Link Building
It is long past the time when you could go out and ask for links from other websites. Google's Panda/Penguin algorithm has forced SEOs to build links in the traditional way: create top-quality content that's relevant. But how do you reach websites that are willing to link to your content , if asking them directly is thought to be an "unnatural" link building method? Social media is your answer. Social media lets you present your content in front of people who are interested and could be influenced to link to it if it's worth linking to. These people will be able to share your content with other people increasing your influence.

3) Content Amplification
The quality of the content you publish, it won't gain traction in the absence of amplifying it. Sure, email marketing can be a great way to amplify content, but it will only be able to reach people who are in your marketing database. The possibility of reaching new audiences is through social media. After you have shared your content, your following will also spread it to their networks if they find it useful. This will cause them to spread the word to their networks to increase your reach. As a result, you get an abundance of relevant traffic and inbound links, as well as branding awareness and social signals - all of which are used by search engines to assess the quality of the content.
