Social Signals Are the New Page Rank. Discuss.

Comments: 2

  • Still cannot figure out how anyone knows what social signals are, or how a search result is connected in any way to social activity. Google cannot access 99% of Facebook’s data, very little Twitter data – and anyway, why would Google want to use that data when both networks directly compete with what Google is trying to accomplish? Social networks are people based, not company based. Searchers look for solutions to problems; social networks are all about people who already have a relationship staying in touch with each other. There’s no compelling, proven link between them.
