- Google crawls social networking sites.
Try searching for yourself in Google. For example, when I search for Beth Bridges, results from FaceBook and LinkedIn are near the top of the list. This blog is in the first page of results - pretty good. I link to this blog from LinkedIn which probably helps my blog's relevancy.
At the BlitzTime event, I met Justin Levy who is the owner of Caminito Argentinean Steakhouse among several other entrepreneurial endeavors. He has over 3,000 inbound links to his site and attributes the majority of these to his social networking activity.
This valuable lesson was worth every minute I spent:
- Get on Social Networking sites and link them to your blog or website to increase ranking, relevancy, and traffic.
