  • Imtiaz Ahmed Tanik: Does google plus ,facebook and twitter really helps in rankings?
  • Dave Elliott: Really, who the hell is saying it does? No, no it doesn't help with rankings.
  • Imtiaz Ahmed Tanik: Well I searched a lot about it. I have heard that the new system called the social signal which google can get from the social networking sites. When someone writes something sharing in social can be a boost to its rankings.
  • Micah Fisher-Kirshner: +: Lots of older articles would proclaim that there is a correlation (see: Moz) and then people take that to me it actually means it helps. That's how these things get around where someone like + may not know enough to dive deep to realize that error.

    No, social signals don't help for public web searches. There's a qualifying factor with personalized searches and G+, but otherwise, the full public search (non-personalized) has no bearing to how you rank with social signals.
  • Imtiaz Ahmed Tanik: Thank you

     ;I was wondering if you could provide me with a proper article. From where i can learn how to rank well in the search engine. Thank you..
  • Dave Elliott: Yeah that is fair enough. + Correlation vs causation can be a bit confusing. It was 8 in the morning. I was a bit snappy! 
  • Edwin Jonk: From the expert panel in this weeks SEO Questions hangout on air on 00:09:20 into the YouTube video: +

    The cuetimes listed on this page are functional while the live broadcast continues and also once Youtube has finished processing the public broadcast. Processing time varies between 6-24 hours. During this period the clip is viewable in full but the cuetimes cannot be relied on.
