The New SEO

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) has changed forever and will continue to evolve. No longer is optimising your website and getting some back links enough! Social signals are the new back links. So it is has become even more important for businesses to use Social Media.

However, posting on Facebook or Twitter that you are drinking a cup of Earl Grey tea is not the way to go. You need to engage with your audience, offer hints, tips and advice about your market. Make them aware of interesting news related articles from other sources. Ask them questions and answer any questions they have.
These are also great topics that can be used on your business blog. You do have a business blog, don’t you?
