These eight tips on boosting your search engine rankings through social media are brilliantly insightful, simple to digest and timely, with the roll out of Google Social Search.
For those that aren’t familiar with Google’s controversial new approach, it basically gives smaller businesses a shortcut to the top of the rankings, provided that they have earned it through social recommendations…on Google+.
Like most people, I dipped my toe in Google+ waters for a week, thought it was rubbish and then tried to pretend it wasn’t there. But rather than going away, it’s just getting louder and more insistent.
So, it’s time to start brushing up on your Google+ skills, learning a new social language and reaching out to people on yet another platform. It sounds like a pain, but these tips will help you stay positive. If you’re a small business, this is a great opportunity and offers a window in which you can go head to head with the big brands and compete on the same playing field.
