Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites.
Social media itself is a catch-all term for sites that may provide radically different social actions. For instance, Twitter is a social site designed to let people share short messages or “updates” with others.
Facebook, in contrast is a full-blown social networking site that allows for sharing updates, photos, joining events and a variety of other activities. On the other hand, YouTube is a website that is used for uploading and sharing videos. It’s usual nowadays for all the mentioned social media to buy likes, followers and subscribers from The Marketing Heaven or some similar company, in order to highlight the content they place online.
How Are Search & Social Media Marketing Related?
Social media often feeds into the discovery of new content such as news stories, and “discovery” is a search activity. Social media can also help build links that in turn support into SEO efforts.
Many people also perform searches at social media sites to find social media content. Social connections may also impact the relevancy of some search results, either within a social media network or at a ‘mainstream’ search engine.
