Is Social the new SEO? Or when "Curation comes up when Search stops working"


“With new changes that offer personalized search results — most of which are being taken from its own Google+ social network — Google has just made social connections and links the new search-engine optimization strategy”
Interesting analysis by Mathew Ingram on what Google just did by tweaking search results to include Google + results in there. And in particular what this means for the Media industry.
If you’re not familiar with the change, the article describes it well and there’s another piece you can check that will probably freak out some.
To elaborate on Mathew’s point, I would put it more concretely: the time where Media could simply use Twitter or G+ accounts like RSS feeds is over. User engagement is required and it means getting readers to like, comment, +1 and… curate your content.
Clay Shirky once defined curation’s role this way: “Curation comes up when search stops working”.
Well, now if you want your content to be searched, you better start by making it curated.

    Personally – I don’t like ‘personalised’ search results.  But for sure, Likes are good, and Shares are better as we move forward with Google looking for social proof when deciding what to present on the SERPS.

    A good SEO service provider will talk to you directly and will give you tips, advices, and recommendations on the things that you need to do. They are after the results that you will gain from their service, and not with the money that you will be spending on them.

    For me SM and SEO can be partners but SM cannot replace the good benefits that SEO has. SEO is still the best and the main factor in promoting our websites and product. SM can still promote our website but I don’t know if many business owners will prefer to this.

    Social media seems to like an SEO but it cannot be the new SEO. Still SEO has it’s own characteristic which can help a certain website to get high page rank in Google which social media cannot give.
