I get asked how to optimize social media pages and content for SEO (search engine optimization), and there are tactics to helping people find your content when they search on Social Media platforms like YouTube (tagging and titles), Twitter (hashtags), Instagram (hashtags), Facebook (still trying to figure this one out) and more...
...But the way I answer this question is around content strategy. As a business seeking a high ranking on Google, which is ultimately still where more than half of all website traffic comes from regardless of business vertical, you need to develop a content outline for what you're going to talk about, and then create and publish consistently to all social media outlets.
Nothing produces better SEO results than this strategy.
