Search Gets Social: Google Using Social Data In Ranking

Last updated 7 years ago

A social media presence becomes even more important to your marketing plan in 2011 as search engines incorporate social media into their search engine rankings.

Straight from the ReachLocal ReachCast blog, learn more about how a social media presence can boost your search engine ranking.

"Social media remains a great way to connect with consumers online. But, it’s becoming a very important part of your overall web presence as well. In fact, social activity is increasingly playing a role in the way search engines organize and display information.

According to a recent video from Matt Cutts on the Google Webmaster channel, Google is now using data from social sites as a signal in search ranking. Right now, you see this most in real-time search, but it is also factoring into web search."

Read more about how search is going social on the official ReachCast blog.
