    Hi,

    I am curious about social accounts' effects over SERPs. Most of the people tell that, getting hit from Facebook, twitter, google plus and other social media accounts will have positive effect on google position of your site.

    - Is it true? What is your opinion?

    - Also would you use social media promotion instead SEO if you had a new established website?

    Thanks

    What do you mean by "getting hit from"?

    Social media absolutely plays a role in SEO. Google wants to see you both have a presence on the top social media outlets as well as seeing others talking about your site/service/company.

    SEO is a long term thing as it doesn't happen overnight. Social media can be utilized to gain instant results (either free or paid). I am not sure what you mean by using social media promotion over SEO.

    Facebook and other social media traffic will have an effect on SERPs?

    Yes it should have a positive effect. Of course this depends on how honest your methods are.

    There should always be a balance between SEO and social media.
