Leveraging Social Media for SEO Leveraging Social Media for SEO Presentation Transcript

  • Using Your Social Network for Higher Search Rankings
    Rand Fishkin, CEO + Co-founder, SEOmoz
    July 2011; Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • Direct Impacts of Social Networks on Search Rankings
  • Direct Links from Social Profiles
    Not all profile links are followed, but correlation data suggests even the nofollows may add value.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
    Via http://answers.onstartups.com, which uses the StackExchange platform.
  • Tweets Influencing Crawling + Rank
    Tweets from powerful accounts that earn lots of RTs seem to act like links and help even in the long term
    Check out these two: http://www.seomoz.org/blog/the-tweet-effect-how-twitter-affects-rankings-12781and http://www.seomoz.org/blog/tweets-effect-rankings-unexpected-case-study
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Social / UG Content Targeting Long Tail Queries
    A great example of this is Facebook comments, which you can make indexable using: http://www.seomoz.org/blog/make-facebook-comments-box-indexable-by-search-engines
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Second-Order Effects of
    Social Media
  • Links Created Due to Social Visibility
    I’ve contributed on http://quora.com moderately over the past year and in addition to the direct traffic, Moz now also earns nice links from folks who find us through those threads.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Branding Impact
    If you want everyone in the startup/hacker world to know your company, just get 5-6 pieces to the frontpage of Hacker News.
    Sites like http://news.ycombinator.com exist in virtually every tech-forward industry, and when they don’t; there’s a big opportunity for you to create/host them.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Positive User/Usage Data Signals
    • Time on Site
    • # of Unique Visits
    • Popularity Over Time
    • Browse Rate
    • CTR from SERPs
    Social traffic may have high bounce rate, but it shows engagement and builds familiarity, leading to greater trustworthiness and all the accompanying metrics Google now uses w/ Panda.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Influencing Personalized SERPs & Adding Social Proof
  • +1s in the SERPs
    Hello Social Proof!
    These +1 counts only seem to show when a page has 500 or more +1s. More - http://searchengineland.com/confirmed-google-showing-1-counts-to-logged-out-users-82800
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • “My Social Circle” Results
    Results from Google’s “My Social Circle.” To see results like this, just add “&tbs=frim:1” to the end of any Google query.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Social Annotations from Your Network
    As great as http://www.everywhereist.com is, it doesn’t rank page one for this query unless I’m logged in and following Geraldine on Twitter.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • The social connections appear to influence rank ordering.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
    These annotations undoubtedly increase CTR, particularly if the source is trusted.
  • Hang on a tic... How did they know I’m connected to Kalena on Facebook?! I haven’t yet added Facebook to my Google account!
    When Google starts using latent (rather than active) network connections, social becomes even more powerful.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Google crawls deeply to get social data and connections once you add a profile.
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html

  • Google Has Deep Social Network Spidering
    Notice that Google crawls through one network to discover connections 2-3 “hops” away on another.

  • Google+
    A New Front in the Search & Social Mix
  • 9,737 followers on Google+. 1,708 followers on Facebook.
    You can see more about the Google+ product via their demo here - http://www.google.com/intl/en/+/demo/
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Google+ Still Has a Lot to Learn About Social
    Facebook URL
    Facebook.com/Rand.Fishkin
    Twitter URL
    Twitter.com/randfish
    Google+ URL
    plus.google.com/u/1/111294201325870406922
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
    Google themselves recommend usable, descriptive URLs, but fails on +
  • Sharing on Google+ is a Bit Different

    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • Mentions are Useful, but a Bit Hidden
    Go to “Notifications” then use the menu to select “Mentions”
    This, sadly, means that, at least for now, mentioning someone on Plus won’t get their attention the way it can on Twitter
    http:/googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/our-new-search-index-caffeine.html
  • FindPeopleonPlus is a Great Tool
