    Social Media sites play vital role in getting more and more exposure for your business and services, though maintaining lot of social media profiles is not less than from a headache. So I think you should choose few but relevant social media sites where you think your audience spend more time.

    It’s cool if you’re going to put keywords on your info, but make sure that it’s not going to look spammy, and that it doesn’t violate any rules in grammar. Well, up to the casual level of strictness for the grammar if you’re just writing for fun, I guess. Anyway, Eric is right; it’s pretty hard to manage a lot of social media accounts because it’s going to eat up a lot of your time. Even if you have them all opened at the same time, it’s going to compromise the loading time of the updates for each site.

Today social media sites have become the most effective way for driving traffic and rightly said search engines are now considered social signals in their search listing and if various social profiles are properly optimized, then surely come up in search listing and help to get more traffic.

    Social media optimization is a pretty huge thing these days. It super important to have your profiles set up , updated and organized to drive traffic to your website.
    SEO can’t be done without having social media accounts. That’s a fact. Of course there are other ways but they are definatly not as effective and sustainable as with social media.
    I used an Hourlie to set up my accounts as i didn’t have the time to set them all up .
    I would definatly recomment it for those of you with time limitations as mine
