Most people have heard of SEO and most people have heard of, and are probably involved with to some degree, social media – a term which broadly means websites (such as Facebook and Twitter) that are based on users interacting and communicating with other users and uploading or sharing content. The crossover between the two is called social SEO and the purpose of it is to use social media to improve your business’s search engine rankings

Google or any other search engine works on a common principle of quality content and the number of backlinks. In social media, one must create superb quality and original content (articles, blogs, videos, photos) to reach a good number of audiences. These social media channels generally have a great page rank and other metrics as these are mostly visited by users around the world. So Social media definitely takes a call while ranking a URL for a particular keyword. Also read Facebook vs YouTube
