Social Media Management – Key to SEO

Let’s face it, the SEO game has changed completely after Google released Panda, Penguin, Penguin 2.1, and Hummingbird. These updates hit legitimate high-quality sites hard regardless of how Google liked to spin the news regarding these updates’ disruptive impact. Still, these updates were quite effective, and it is very hard nowadays to rank simple thinly-stocked  websites that try to make money off affiliate programs. Well, Google’s been cracking down on the old SEO tricks promoters used to push these  sites up in search rankings. The good news is that you can still use SEO to rank well for affiliate sites. You just have to play the new post-Penguin SEO game right.

Social Media Connection

Make no mistakes about it, Google is factoring in social media signals into your site’s SEO competitiveness. If your site doesn’t have too many social media mentions, your  site might not rank well in Google. The name of the game in SEO nowadays is social media brand building. This isn’t as hard as you think. You can stock your site with high-quality content that flows naturally instead of using affiliate type of content as the center of the blog or site. Offer real value so people would share your content on social media sites like Google Plus, Twitter, and Facebook. The more your content gets retweeted and shared in Google Plus circles, the higher the SEO benefits you get. Think of it this way, the best way to SEO your site is to forget about SEO and remember the end user of your Info. By taking care of others, others will take care of you. That’s how the new SEO works. It’s all about high-quality useful content.

Focus on building a ‘go to’ site for hosting content

It is too tempting to build your affiliate site. If you build your site this way, you’re not going to get much traffic. You’re not going to make much money. Instead, build your site from the ground up as a means to help other people. Once you do this, they’ll share your content on social media and your chances of actually making money off your site dramatically goes up.

If you have dreams of making money online and firing your boss, your first step is to have a plan. You have to have a clear idea of what you want to achieve. If you don’t plan, you are just taking shots in the dark. If you have no idea about what you want to build, you can’t set goals. If you can’t set goals, your dreams of an online income empire will remain exactly that-dreams.
