Social Media Optimization

Social Media OptimizationSocial Media Optimization, or  SMO,  is the use of social media outlets to optimize activity and awareness of a product, service brand or event.  Social media optimization includes using RSS feeds, social news and bookmarking sites, as well as social media sites and video and blogging sites.  SMO is similar to SEO in that the goal is to drive traffic to your Web site.

SMO can be done two ways; adding social media links to content, or promoting activity through social media.

Social Media Marketing, or SMM, is a form of Internet marketing that utilizes social networking websites as a marketing tool.  The goal of SMM is to produce content that users will share with their social network to help a company increase brand exposure and broaden customer reach.

Most social media platforms have their own built-in data analytics tools, which enable companies to track the progress, success, and engagement of ad campaigns.  On a strategic level, social media marketing includes the management and implementation of a marketing campaign for desired results.

Nationwide SEO

Nationwide SEO, also called National SEO or just SEO is a two-step process. It consists of on page optimization, which includes titles, tags, formatting, videos, pictures and graphs where appropriate and of course, high quality written content. Along with the on-page SEO efforts, we also perform off-page tasks such as link-building, social media posts and directory listings. Also, tools such as videos, infographics, press releases and blog posts can all be very beneficial to search rankings and can be used both on your website and posted off-page on social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

One thing that separates a good SEO from a bad one is the ability to determine how to use all the tools available, to most effectively implement your SEO campaign. This will vary depending on a number of factors, such as their client’s industry, location, competition and available resources.

Local SEO

SEO is critically important for the success of your business. According to Google, 80% of users search online for local businesses. And while there are many similarities between local SEO and nationwide SEO there are also some significant differences. First and foremost is the value of being included in the Google Local 3-Pack. Also known as Google my Business and just GMB, this is a coveted section that includes the top three local search results, along with their locations on Google Maps. As you can imagine this is incredibly powerful, as the Google Local 3-Pack results are highlighted, linked to Google Maps and the first thing a user sees after the AdWords ads. Due to value of 3-pack listing, it’s important that the SEO provider you choose has a strong history of providing results here.

Also, citation accuracy is more important with local SEO than with nationwide SEO.  If the company’s NAP (name address and phone number) don’t match exactly everywhere on the Internet, it will negatively impact the website’s search rankings. This is true of every citation, whether it be on a directory, social media or anywhere else on the Internet.

As is optimizing your site for mobile search, which is used more extensively on local SEO searches than with nationwide SEO. In fact, studies have shown that up to 60% of local SEO searches are mobile searches. And what makes voice search especially important is that according to Google, 50% of users who do a local search on mobile visit the business within 24 hours.
