  11. 11. Thoughts from our Head of SEO & Social "hashtags have become a permanent fixture in social media. Initially a Twittercraze, the other major players have since caved. Facebook and now Google have implemented them into their algorithms and content. Importantly, hashtags are not keywords and need a completely different approach. They grow through promotion and memes and thus, usually have a much shorter shelf-life. They need a unique approach, centered on timeliness, audience targeting and as ever, truly engaging content." 01/10/2013 © Copyright October 2013 Make It Rain
