Can social media activity impact organic search rankings? Popular wisdom says yes, but Michael David of Tasty Placement set out to prove it with a simple test, and compiled his findings into an easy-to-follow infographic.
It’s hard to imagine a scenario where Google would not take advantage of their staggering search market share (more than 3 times its nearest competitor, Bing) to aid in injecting their fledgling social media arm, Google+, into more of our lives.
Google+, afterall, holds a mere 0.58% of the social media market share as of April 2012.
Suspicions are abound, that Google would "reward" those of us who are making a serious "go" at incorporating Google+ into our daily social media regimen.
The following infographic, will at the very least, should encourage you to dedicate a bit more time into the investigation of how using different social media out-posts can affect your search rankings in a very real way.
It certainly raised an eyebrow here at Magnetic MarCom...
