6 Social Media Marketing Practices That Boost SEO Campaigns Social media marketing and SEO go together like bread and butter.

Both of them combined works to create a unique and enticing identity for your brand which is crucial for improving social media reach. You can bring out high-quality content with strong and visible brand presence, but without SEO, it would not be reaching the right people, and your search ranking may be greatly affected.

Bring up your Number of Followers The larger the number of followers you have on your social media profile, the more visible you are. And the catch is that you need to get them organically.

This week for fun fact Friday, we will be sharing with you the importance of optimizing content not only for SEO, but for sharing!
It is important to optimize your content with sharing buttons only to the sites that you think will actually share your content and engage with it. The reasoning behind this is because you will end up getting better numbers from the target market that you have been trying to appeal to all along, instead of getting scattered numbers of feedback from other readers that do not matter as much to what you are trying to achieve with your content.
Only limit your social media sharing button to 3 at the most because, with too many options, your brain will become fatigued and may not end up getting shared at all in the end.
Are you a frequent user of the Auto-Engagement Bots? If so, you should not be after reading this post. The reasoning we have conducted as to why you should stop utilizing these bots is because you are:
1. Missing out the opportunity to actually see posts that show up on your feed and that could end up instilling you with knowledge
2. It is obvious that you are a bot user and people may think of you as a lesser company or individual because you do not have true intentions behind engaging with their posts like one should have. This can lead to even more serious repercussions like losing business and your sparkling reputation.
It is so exciting when you get a follow from that person you have wanted to connect with for awhile because they are so interesting and you love what they have to say! However, the way to keep your relationship with them strong and healthy is NOT to send them an automatic pitch message, but to keep your communication level simple and low to only liking each other's posts until you get real and consistent engagement with them. That is when you can direct message them! Having a pitch message sent from the second you become followers of each other comes off as cold and greedy, something you want to avoid at all costs if you are trying to gain potential clients.

It’s Early in 2018 and AHREFS tops the marketing blunder list
It’s only the first week in February and you are reading about the Metrics/Data supplier that has provided us with fodder by creating a huge marketing blunder, Ahrefs.
Ahrefs is world's biggest third-party database of search queries with refined monthly search volume and research metrics. Their data is used by untold numbers of digital marketers across the world. Arguably they are the industry leader in this type of data. The only thing that they changed was how a tiny item in their metrics was being calculated. About a week prior to the effective date of the change, Ahrefs notified users that a change was coming to how they calculated a domain rating or DR. They also stated that many sites would see their rankings drop. I agree that a need for change was warranted. What I don’t agree with how they calculated the change and its ramifications for roughly 75% of all websites.
