What is Social SEO?
Simply put, Social SEO means making it easy for various social networks to understand the content on your site and help them display your content in a way that generates the right social activity.
If SEO helps you rank better on Google, Bing and other search engines, Social SEO will help your site stand out on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media networks.
I don’t have to tell you the benefits of increased social media activity on your site. Do I? Different social networks have different ways and formats for interpreting your website content. Facebook for example looks for Open Graph tags, Twitter looks for Twitter cards while Google+ uses the Google Authorship markup.
By including relevant information in prescribed formats in our webpages, we can make our sites attract the right social media audience, eyeballs and the right traffic. All this can be accomplished with Social SEO.
Is Your Site Social SEO Ready?
Gearing up your site with Social SEO simply means adding relevant meta tags to the pages of your website. However, it is very cumbersome to add these tags manually to all pages. If you are using themes like SomoThemes on your WordPress sites, you are already a step ahead as you already have out-of-the-box support for Facebook Open Graph and Google Authorship markup.
Let me tell you about the new SEOPressor plugin. Chances are you are already using this plugin. SEOPressor has now come up with an all powerful new version V5 that includes an out-of-the-box support for Social SEO and many more feature additions.
If you are already using SEOPressor, this will be a free upgrade. I highly recommend that you grab a copy of SEOPressor for your site right away. I am sure you will thank me for this. Few main features of the version V5 are – Over Optimization Check, Structured Data Support, Multiple LSI Keywords Analysis, Social SEO Integration, Automatic Smart Linking. In my opinion, this simply beats all other on-page SEO plugins out there. Period.
