What Are the Benefits to Social Media Marketing?
In Tampa, SEO is great for businesses to invest in. However, the major search engines have been having a riding problem in web spam, which are websites that were created specifically for the purpose of gaining high search ranking visibility. Unfortunately, these websites generally are very unhelpful and obnoxious.
In an attempt to thwart these so called, “black hat SEOs”, the search engines are turning to social media as indicators on whether or not a website is trustworthy. By the end of 2011, we predict that social media will be the strongest ranking factor used for domain authority.
With that said, if your business doesn’t focus on social media marketing, you may not be able to focus on organic search engine optimization either.
