When Social Media Meets SEO
In the initial stage of social media marketing, social media was considered as a separate entity from search engine optimization. However, with time search engines are considering social media activities for the generation of the search results. Therefore, the small business owners stand to benefit from this change. These businesses make prolific use of social media in order to reach out to the masses and turn prospective customers into buyers. If they add anything on their Facebook business page or on Twitter, that will be taken into account by Google.
The amalgam of SEO and social media will lay impetus on the consumer behavior online. The social media marketing will ensure that SEO learns a lot from what the consumers are talking about on the social networks, what they are pinning, what they are sharing, what they are posting and so on. One of the simplest of examples would be that images would definitely make more rounds on the social networks than a few words. Pictures will take over words in the coming year.
The above mentioned and many other trends will rule the New Year. 2014 will definitely mark the dominance of social media and how the tweets and posts rule the online marketing scene.
