What do social media platforms have to offer SEO? MWI receives this information a lot from clients who are prospective or current. While social media has been an increasing channel for marketing in recent times, many firms haven't yet begun to benefit from it. This is especially true if you are investing in search engine optimization. The creation and management of social media accounts are crucial to support SEO efforts, although the benefits may not be immediately apparent. Here are five reasons why social media is essential for SEO.

1) Social Media Signals
It's not a secret that Google, Bing and other major search engines have been using online chat as part of their ranking algorithms for a long time now. Whenever people tweet, like or comment on the content they like, this is called a social engagement. Content that has more social engagements will have more social signals. Search engines look at the social signals they receive, and use it as a quality factor when ranking the content. It's a way of evaluating what content people find useful in comparison to what their algorithm determines to be good quality. A piece of content could be immediately indexed when it's getting a lot of engagement on social media.

2.) Link Building
It's long gone of soliciting websites to link to your site. With the emergence of Google's Panda and Penguin algorithms, SEOs are forced to create links in the traditional way to create quality content which is relevant to linking. How do you get in touch with sites that would be willing to link to your site if you ask them directly, which is an "unnatural" link building practice? Social media is your solution. Social media enables you to place your content in front of people who are interested and could be attracted to link to it when it's worthy of linking to. Those people will also share your content with their network which will increase the impact of your content.

3) Content amplification

Sure, email marketing is an effective way to boost content, but it can 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 followers will share it with their following if they find it useful. These people will then share your content with their followers, thereby increasing your reach. You'll also get relevant traffic through inbound linking, social signals, and brand recognition All of which are used by search engines to make quality evaluation.
