    What experiences have you had about this subject? Have you noticed an increase in search engine rankings for your websites after you have gotten a lot of social media back links? Can google even index stuff that's on facebook?

    Yes it matters. It matters for every single search engine. [​IMG]

    You can see social sharing is in one of top 5 factors for Google. Site owners are often tempted to skip initial preparations for link building. But it’s important that you give this top priority, because preparing a site will ensure that you’re mindful of the links you sent to them.

    Google does index Facebook pages however Facebook groups are close door territories and not indexed.

    On the other hand, tweets that get re-tweeted a lot are of huge importance to Google.

    On the contrary to the chart in Nitesh's post, I disagree that Google gives zero importance to backlinks.

    Where did you copy this chart from? I see you post a lots of copied content from Google.

    I suggest you write your own content too. That will pass copyscape and add value to this forum.

    IF you continue to post copied content here without source, that will only bring down the PR of this website down and lesser organic traffic to this forum.

    It's a free forum, let's add value here instead of doing things other way around.

    Thank you for all the info. So, basically, stay away from facebook groups, focus on growing my own page and trying to get retweets. Does google offer more weight to tweets made from accounts with a lot of followers compared to new accounts or old accounts with only a few hundred followers?

    > stay away from facebook groups

    ----> You could socialize with like minded people on FB groups, should help build traffic. Just doing FB pages and not hitting FB groups at all would be SEO friendly and half Anti-Social IMO.

    > Does google offer more weight to tweets made from accounts with a lot of followers compared to new accounts or old accounts with only a few hundred followers?

    -----> As per Matt Cutts, not. Google just looks at each page as a unique entity, that's why every web page has it's own PageRank depending on the juice in it and how popular it is on internet.

    You could spend $5 and get 500 followers overnight, it's ideal for Google to ignore how many followers you have. BUT, if your followers are real, your tweets will get re-tweeted and liked, loads of comments and thus add juice + rankings to your tweets and URLs in them.

    Just reported one of your posts. Next time you copy someone's content, make sure you post the source link.

    Copied from internet and posted without source link = Duplicate Content Penalty from Google on this forum!

    If forums mods / admins don't take action against such posts, I'll see what I can do.

    Well in my experience anything that helps move the needle is worth the time and the effort to look into, and this would certainly fall into that category. Social media is what is driving the world these days, and that includes commerce and traffic is a form of commerce these days, and that means that any way you can move that needle you are growing your site.

    I don't think Google recognizes Twitter and facebook shares, however, if you share on Google Plus, Google search recognizes your sharing. The +1 feature on Google + gives an edge over facebook or twitter

    As per Matt Cutts, Google looks at each Twitter / FB page like an independent page.. ignores count of followers.

    You maybe right about +G features though.

    Guys, do we really have to slap each other around? Simmer down and discuss the topics.

    As for crediting the source, it is a policy. No need to get into name calling over it. Be nice please.

    I ignored him a few days back, I should have utilized that feature earlier.

    I can't stand a person who copies and pastes content from internet without mentioning the source, I never will. It sounds too cheap. Plagiarism is like plague.. sucks!

    Apologies if that sounds rude, but this is about simple internet manners.

    Fellas at Google and likes understand my feelings.
