Social media is an incredibly expanding channel of marketing that many businesses have only recently begun to take advantage of over the past few years. However, it’s vital to take advantage of it – especially if you’re investing resources into search engine optimization. Setting up and managing social media accounts are crucial to support SEO efforts, though the benefits may not be immediately apparent. Here are five reasons why social media is essential for SEO.

1.) Social Media Signals

It is no secret that Google, Bing, and other search engines rely on online dialogue in their algorithm for ranking. When people tweet, like or comment on a piece of content, this is called a social engagement. Content with more social engagements will be able to show more social signals. These social signals are used by search engines to rank the content. This allows search engines to decide the content that people are most interested in and what their algorithm deems high-quality. If an article receives a lot of engagement on social media the content can be classified.

In the wake of Google’s Panda and Penguin algorithm, SEOs are forced to build links by hand and create content of high-quality that is link-worthy. How do you reach websites who are willing to link to your content, if asking them directly would be thought to be “unnatural”? Social media is the way to go. Social media lets you share your content with people who are willing to link to it if it is worth linking to. Those people will also share your content with their networks and increase the reach of your content.

3.) Content amplification
