    Last week I posted a infographic onto my money site blog and shared it on a niche relevant subreddit. I only had about 10 shares but over the last two days it's jumped to 66 facebook shares and growing. Are these shares going to help my seo rankings, or are they just good for driving traffic to the site? Thanks!

    Google indexes the Facebook shares - Remember it doesn't indexes all 100% may be up to 50-60% it indexes.
    I don't know exactly whether the shares counts impact our SEO campaigns?

    Facebook shares won't directly help your SEO because those links (even if indexed by Google) are not editorial links (everyone can get it), but they will help your site's ranking indirectly: user behaviors and etc.
