SEO Tip of the Week: Social Media Buttons

 

It has never been easier to incorporate social media share buttons onto your website, which allows visitors to share your content on their own personal social media accounts. This enables your pages, and website, to reach a heightened level of visibility and awareness, potentially helping to drive a greater number of visitors into it.

 

This is the main benefit but, in addition to this, increasing the number of shares that your pages receive will result in their authority levels growing. This can help to provide your organic rankings with a much needed boost, as web pages that are more authoritative tend to perform more successfully within Google’s organic rankings.

 

Social media share buttons can be added in numerous positions on your website, with the majority of websites now seeing them placed directly underneath page content or, more recently, on a fixed position on the right/left column of the page, as shown in the below example. This provides increased visibility, resulting in a greater number of users sharing the content on their social media accounts:
