Shotgun Social Signals

Let me be frank.

While social signals play an important role in Google's algorithm, they still take a backseat to quality links and content.

However, if you're confident you have those 2 elements sufficiently nailed down for the time being, it makes sense to start tackling other ranking factors like social signals to help push rankings.

I like to approach my social signals recipe the same way I do link building, with a sprinkling of diversity.

Ranking Validation with Social Signals

A site that ranks well, has a good number of backlinks, but has 0 social shares might seem a little suspect.

Sites that are already doing well but have no social signals are an obvious candidate for them, if only to add validation to your already positive rankings.

But Can They Help Push Further?

You don't have to take my word for it, you can find a lot of case studies online that will testify to the fact that social signals are a good top-off to an already solid SEO campaign.
