This article covers how to use social networks to build links. The advice below is only the tip of the ice-berg, but should help you give your social network strategy some oomph! </li></ul>
<ul><li>Create a Facebook Page </li></ul><ul><li>Many Facebook pages are neglected, but even if you have limited time on your hands, there are steps you can take to make sure the content is regularly updated. </li></ul><ul><li>You can use a service such as Twitterfeed to update a Facebook page with your latest blog posts, and other content that has a RSS feed generated such as a YouTube channel. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Plus don’t forget once your Facebook page has 25 ‘likes’, you can create a unique url. </li></ul><ul><li>Though be careful as you can only do this once per page and whatever you choose is permanent. The url to create the unique Facebook page url is: http://www.facebook.com/username. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Create a social network account for your photos and / or videos. </li></ul><ul><li>Whereas Flickr no-longer passes on link juice via an external url in the photo description, this shouldn’t stop you building a presence on Flickr, which could help you find new traffic. Plus there are many other networks you can share photos. </li></ul><ul><li>Many people reading this article will be wondering what ‘images’ they can actually upload. However the truth is for many of us, it is easy to regularly take photos. </li></ul>
<ul><li>How about? </li></ul><ul><li>The marketing team at events. </li></ul><ul><li>The technicians fixing products. </li></ul><ul><li>The unboxing of the latest goods. </li></ul><ul><li>Then accompanying each photo you provide a website url with important keywords in the link’s anchor text. i.e. exact match keywords </li></ul><ul><li>As well as Flickr and Tumblr another blog network you might want to use is Posterous. Using different networks will enable you to build a more diverse SEO strategy. </li></ul>
<ul><li>What about the video? </li></ul><ul><li>Many digital photography cameras now can record short video clips. Even a 320x or 640x is useful, as long as you have a steady hand and good light. </li></ul><ul><li>For both photos and videos it is important to be professional in the images, even if the results at times might not quite look high quality. </li></ul>
<ul><li>It is important not to be spend too long trying to tweak your content, but instead to regularly produce content and share. </li></ul><ul><li>So naturally for video there is YouTube, where you can add a link in the video description, plus there are many other video networks you can use, but YouTube is the most popular. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul><ul><li>It is important not to just rely on social networks for link building, but it would be unwise to overlook social networks, that can both help increase your website’s backlinks, and could help drive visitor traffic to your website. </li></ul><ul><li>There are many other ways to use social networks to help build links, which we will write more about on this blog.
