SEO plays a key role in driving website traffic. In order to search engine optimize your website, you need to make your website content, search engine friendly, and build backlinks that increase your site’s credibility. Optimizing content on your website itself can be a simple step, but building quality backlinks from other websites is a difficult job. You will either need to invest a lot of time building them yourself, or hire an expert to do it.
There has also been a lot of discussion lately about how social media affects SEO, especially because of the recent Google search engine updates where social shares play an important role. This got me wondering if social media plays a role in SEO by helping websites attract backlinks, as well. So I performed a study by collecting data from websites and analysed and compared them against each other to find out if there was a relation. You can find my results in the infographic below.
Businesses, bloggers, marketers, and website owners who are looking for ways to increase traffic to their sites will find this study helpful, as you will learn how to attract more backlinks to your site, while simultaneously working on improving your social media presence.

Would you like to run magnetic Facebook contests?
Contests are an important component to running an effective Facebook page. They can increase engagement, get you more likes, increase website traffic, drive sales, etc. But running a contest on Facebook isn’t as simple as you think. You don’t just choose a random prize and target and work towards it aimlessly by launching a contest out of the blue. Facebook contests have to be planned in advance and run accordingly throughout the course of the contest. You need to first make a goal and work towards achieving it by building the perfect app, promoting the campaign, choosing a relevant prize, targeting an audience, etc.
This will help you attract an audience who will not only drive engagement, but will also be more likely to buy your products or use your services in the future. Here is a fantastic post, by Curt Finch (on Mashable), on running effective social media contests.
