The answer is definitly yes, if you want them to. Meaning, if you are trying to SEO a site having links from your Twitter and faceBook posts will definitely help your SEO efforts. Also, you probably have noticed that Google especially ranks keywords from profile names of both Twitter and Facebook a lot. As some of you know that I have been blogging or Micro-blogging on Twitter much more than here. Some have asked why? Main reason is that I find Twitter to be more engaging which makes it more interactive and fun. That goes the same for faceBook, but not quite as intense and faceBook to me is less about business and more about my personal contacts and friends (I am back here blogging to help SEO for a friends website that is launching a line of Yoga Clothing, but their first line of Yoga clothes will be Om T Shirts. They plan to have a full line of Mens and Womens Yoga clothing later). And, if you notice, these anchor text links as I just did for Om Yoga Clothing and Om T shirts above, help a lot for SEO. In fact, within a day of my last post the Om T shirts site got ranked much higher than my Twitter post and links. So closing the loop on SEO and Social media, both departments in larger companies should work together, as they should and do mix. Do traditional anchortext links from a high PR first, then your social media and Twitter links.
I recently saw a great article on iMediaConnection.com here is an excerpt and a link to article. How to create a social media department

But with the rapid growth of social media and the lightning-fast speed at which technology changes, agencies are finding it’s essential to have people on board who can keep up.
With any new technology, it’s hard to know when to jump on board and whether it’s worth establishing a new wing for new media. It can be funny to look back and see how other new technologies were either embraced or shunned; the show “Mad Men” poked fun at the reluctance to embrace television by having the fictitious Sterling Cooper agency start a television department with one member.
With its fast growth and wide audience, it’s safe to say social media will be a part of almost every campaign from here on out. But before an agency starts a social media department, there are some things to consider…See More
As mentioned above I am doing this blog post, not just to keep my Marketing book relatively fresh, which I care about but not that much. I care more about supporting my friend’s Om Yoga Clothing line with Om T shirts and a full line with Mens Yoga clothing and women’s Yoga clothing coming soon. They tell me that these products will be 100% organic, made in the USA and with great design. I can’t wait to see them, and buy an Om T Shirt, I hope you support them by visiting their site, Thanks!
