Another SEO Myth gets busted.

Continuing on this idea of busting search engine optimization myths, in this post I’m tackling social signals as a factor to help rank in search engines.

This is complete nonsense.

First of all, I’m not even 100% sure what social signals are, but I think they are likes on Facebook and likes and retweets on Twitter and stuff like this.

This is utter nonsense.  It doesn’t help you rank a site.

There are many of this gigs or services on sites like Fiverr.  They are utterly useless.  The hold no value and can easily be accomplished with automated programs or bots.

They’re basically just spam.

I haven’t really see folks talk about social signals much since 2016 or 2017, but in case you’re wondering, they’re nonsense don’t waste your time with them.

Also, social media links don’t matter for ranking either.  They are all no-follow links and they don’t pass any relevance.  They are easy to get and that’s one of the reasons why they have little value.

Now, that’s not to say they can’t be useful.  If you have a significant audience on social media and you give out a link to your product or service, and you get a bunch of folks to buy from you, that’s great.

Social media links can be great for getting traffic to your site or your offer.  So they can definitely have value if used correctly.

But they don’t have value in pushing your website to the top of Google searches.
