Social Media & SEO

Social Media & SEO

To answer the question, “What is Social Media & SEO?” Perhaps I first need to attempt a definition of what social media is. It is social networks which clearly include Facebook, Google + and others. It also includes Twitter and social bookmarking sites such as Delicious, Digg and Stumble Upon. Then there is Wikipedia, wikihow and wiki answers, along with Yahoo! and its answers and social networks.

Social Media & SEO is getting your site into all these sites or at least the ones that people tend to use a lot, by bookmarking pages, adding comments and generally promoting your site. Of course comments should be relevant to the posts and should also add information so that your site (you always get to leave your URL) seems authoritative on topics related to its niche. This is important. You want to create a higher profile for your site so that it rises in the Search Engine Rankings Pages (SERPS), so you shouldn’t write negative comments on sites which have comments posted by your competitors. What you are trying to do is create a positive image for your site as well as having it climb the SERPS. Don’t resort to comments which can be construed as spam, as this simply serves to irritate people.

Besides the myriad of problems that a Small Businesses owner faces, the most severe issue is lack of capital and limited avenues to raise capital from external sources. Being a small business owner, it is never easy to get a business loan, as most lenders would consider them as borrowers with unstable income and poor credit. Justifiably, as most small business often do not have a steady flow of income in the initial period and runs on low profit, it actually becomes a challenge for the owners to pay off their business loans.
