10 Ways to Use Social Media to Increase Ranking

Many entrepreneurs nowadays host their business online, rather than offline. In order for online businesses to be successful, the business owners must increase their website’s ranking in the search engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Bing, or AOL). To receive higher click-through rates to your website and/or blog, it is extremely imperative that you focus on increasing your ranking during your first year of business. One of the most popular methods of increasing your ranking is to use social media. Social media has become ingrained in our society today; and thus, we no longer have to take the long route (ex: making phone calls, travelling to specific destinations). Everything is now accessible with the click of a button. Also, not only has social media allowed us to reach out to other countries; social media has evolved into one of our primary forms of communication.

In this article, you will learn 10 ways to use social media to increase your search engine ranking.

Tips to Increase Ranking with Social Media

Tip #1: Ask Your Peers to Spread the Word About Your Business.

Log on to your preferred social media platform – albeit Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Google+, YouTube, or Pinterest – and simply type in the name of your business as well as your message. The message could say “Tell Your Friends About Our Business”, or it could be any other message of your choice. Then, ask them to SHARE the post, RETWEET the post, LIKE the post, +1 the post, or REPIN the post. After your followers have done so, this will drive more traffic to your respective website and/or blog. If you ask someone to do you a favor, there is a higher possibility that they will actually do the favor you asked them to do. Very simple, right?

Tip #2: Share Your Content on your Social Media Platforms.

One of the easiest ways to increase your ranking is to share your content on your preferred social media outlet. For example, when you finish writing and publishing your blog post, copy and paste the URL into Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Google+, or Pinterest. Next, type in the title of your blog post before the URL to grab your followers’ attention. Then, when your followers see your blog post in their timeline or feed, they might click on it if it seems interesting.
