    Social Media


    I was wondering that does it hurt a site's ranking, if you share its posts on local social media websites of various countries?

    You will likely find that many social media links are "no-follow". That means they don't count to Google.

    Can you elaborate on this? It's news to me.
    E.g. are you saying that most likely all links from Facebook or Twitter don't count to Google?
    Last thing I heard was that social media following was actually becoming one of the most important factors.

    Hi SEO Ninja23,
    That is exactly what G has been saying for years.

    Eric Enge wrote a summary. I believe this is still the current G position:

    You also need to consider that even if links where recognised from Facebook and Twitter, most would likely have little backlink ranking value.

    "Following" would imply you mean having social followers? That also doesn't pass any weight if you did mean that.

    If you mean in regards to links, all the big daddys don't give out do-follows, like Facebook etc. So still good for traffic, brand awareness and business in general, but the serps - no.
