https://www.seroundtable.com/google-social-signals-ranking-20803.html So Google is claiming that social signals, shares, tweets, and the like have NOOOO impact on a page's ranking. From this it appears that they are making the claim that their algorithm absolutely does not take social links directly into its ranking equation. Meaning sheerly from a linkjuice standpoint that social links HAVE NONE. So may I say that I call bullshit. Based on my usage it is clear that social signals are quite relevant. So I have to ask myself why Google would be saying this? Are they trying to convince people to stop spamming by saying it won't work? Or have they worded this cunningly enough to not be a lie?
