Social Metrics Pro Press Release #1
Google Confirms Using Social Signals to Rank Websites
Google’s recent revelation that it uses Social Signals to rank websites has caused
drastic aftershocks in the online community. Networkers are busy changing
their strategies to meet with the newest ranking factor developed by the head
honchos at Google.
Search engine Google recently came out into the open with the newest
parameter it uses to rank websites. Dubbed as Social Signals, this new method of website
ranking has added to the growing importance of the world of social
networking and marketing. This system of ranking will see Google use information from
social networking portals such as Facebook and Twitter to assess the rank of
‘Social Signals’ is a collective name accorded to methods used by social
networking websites to gauge online popularity. These include Facebook’s Likes,
Twitter’s Retweets and Google’s Plus’ +1s. Among these, a definite leverage is
commanded by Twitter’s Retweets, which are being considered as the most emphatic
method right now to build links. Twitter allows its content to be retweeted a
number of times, which adds up the Social Signals it sends. Google reveals that it uses such social signals to rank websites on its search pages.
Google justifies its position by stating that Social Signals are the most accurate
measure of a website’s popularity.
Social Signals originate from users who genuinely
like what they see and want to share it with their circle of people. Google
uses this viral marketing strategy to constantly rank websites so that it can offer
the most popular content to its users.
This revelation from the world’s biggest search engine has the search
engine optimizers in a tizzy. Over the last year, backlinks had turned out to be
the most popular modus operandi of marketers to optimize their websites. However,
with the advent of Social Signals, backlinking has taken a backseat. Online marketers are
rapidly employing new methods to improve their websites from the social
networking point of view.
Plugins are being developed to measure the Social Signals accumulated by
websites. Such plugins gather data from popular social networking websites
such as Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Digg, StumbleUpon and others to get a
dynamic measure of the popularity of websites. Plugins such as Social Metrics Pro
are compatible with specific blog platforms such as WordPress, and use methods
such as color coding to differentiate the more popular content from the less
However, while some online marketers are busy changing their tactics to
fit into Google’s new groove, there are a few who are unruffled. They hold the view
that this is just another of Google’s ever-changing policies, which will not affect
the world of SEO much. At the same time, there are others who are playing it safe and
focusing on both backlinking as well as Social Signals to bring their websites to the top of the heap.

For the uninitiated, Google announced about a month ago that it has
started using feeds from social networking portals to rank the popularity of websites.
