The above benefits will have a knock-on effect by enhancing your brand reputation. Increasing the number of times Social Media users share or post links to your website, will help Google with the correct and more effective indexation of your blog articles.
Indexation can lead to more traffic from search engines and improved rankings of your website in search results. The social signals explained above will strengthen the factors Google considers when ranking a website in search results. You can accumulate those signals in mass by sharing on different Social Media platforms.
Google indexing bots and search engine algorithms have developed to understand user intent and the quality of content. This enables Google to offer users the most relevant content based on the phrases and words used in their search queries. It is no longer effective to cram relevant keywords into each page or post. In fact, it will most likely hurt your website’s ranking in search results.
To make your blog content perform well on Social Media and in search engine results, prioritize well-researched and truly valuable content.
Invest sufficient time in research and development of well thought out and strategic copy that will connect with your readers. This is much simpler when you truly understand your ideal reader’s present state of mind, how their current challenges relate to your industry or niche, and how your unique positioning could help them.
With all the vital elements in place, such as social share buttons and interesting CTAs (calls-to-action), readers will share your content.
Having social share buttons and compelling CTAs in place and immediately visible on each blog article, makes sharing on social media much simpler. Using CTAs in your social media content also encourages your followers and subscribers to share your posts.
There are other important factors to keep in mind when creating content to ensure it is engaging and easy to share on social media.
By focusing on the above three factors when creating content for social media, your profiles and pages have a much greater chance of reaching more of your ideal audience, more often.
Building relationships is one of the best ways to increase engagement on your social media accounts. This tactic also helps you understand your ideal customer’s state of mind, needs, and their most pertinent and current challenges.
