Originally presented at http://www.brightonseo.com Why do we treat Social Media so differently from the rest of our digital marketing and from what we already know through our life experiences? The idea that “Everything Is A Social Network” is intrinsically linked to the belief that we have always “Socially Networked” and looks to learn the lessons we already know, but rarely apply when it comes to business and Social Media. It also attempts to explode the myths that either “Social Media is a fad” or “SEO is Dead” and instead looks at how and why the two MUST work together and be used as part of a broader digital strategy and not singularly.

  • We really enjoyed Paul’s presentation and were glad that someone has found concrete evidence that Tweets directly influence the SERPs, as it’s certainly something we’ve found in our own work. We’ve published a video of Paul’s presentation and some of our own thoughts on our blog here:

  • 13. SEO Brighton: Test one results.<br />Observations<br />Tweets played a huge role in indexing and ranking higher<br />It wasn’t entirely clear if they achieved the results alone<br />It appeared that Tweets were a secondary level of influence<br />We needed another, purer test<br />

  • 23. SEO Brighton: Social Media & SEO takeaways.<br />Make sure blogs are in Google News<br />Build quality followers for Twitter (above 1,500 ideally)<br />Tweet your posts using keywords you want to rank for<br />Optimise at least the titles and make sure the title is used in your tweet<br />Try and encourage other powerful account holders to RT<br />Paper.li type daily digest sites can help (probably temporarily)<br />Fresh content in page copy helps the likelihood of ranking improvement, but this needs further testing<br />
