Social Media

Social media and search engine optimization (SEO) are at the heart of any strong digital marketing strategy. They’re incredibly useful and powerful ways to reach potential customers and increase engagement. Often overlooked, however, is the relationship between the two and how they work together to produce organic results.

In the latest blog from Valve+Meter Performance Marketing, we’ll discuss how the two work together to provide your company with strong and impactful results.

Get Content to Rank Quicker on Search Engines

After you’ve created new content or edited the copy on an existing webpage, Google can take months to recognize the changes or new pieces of content. However, an increase in traffic to a certain page helps Google quickly identify new content that needs to be crawled and indexed.

In addition to the many other benefits of receiving more clicks and traffic to a webpage, sharing new content to your social platforms and receiving more traffic will help your content get indexed and rank quicker. The earlier your content can rank within the SERP, the more clicks and traffic your website will receive.

Better Understanding of Your Target Audience

Social media platforms are a great way to test if your content is relevant to your target audience. After you post a piece of content to a social media platform, focus on the post’s engagement. The more views, likes, and shares a post gets, the more likely your audience was interested in the content you posted.

From there, you can determine what topics and types of content consistently receive the most engagement and interactions and create more content centered around what your audience is looking for and interested in.

Strengthen Brand Recognition and Interaction

Creating positive brand recognition in the minds of your target audience is key in capturing visitors and increasing traffic to your website. When a searcher that you’ve had a positive interaction with sees your company’s name, logo, or URL within a search query, they’ll be more likely to visit your website, as they have a sense of familiarity with your brand.

A great way to increase brand recognition and interaction is through simple social media efforts, such as social media posts. By posting a Q&A, for example, you’ll help answer any questions your visitors may have while also providing more information about your company’s products and services.
