    As someone who is new to IM, I was wondering if doing SEO is helpful for boosting social media sites ie. Facebook pages, Twitter, etc.

    Sure. You can rank Fanpages for their titles quite easily. Twitter account, Pinterest, Instagram profiles. All rank for keyworded titles, you see these properties all over the web. Just optimize all that you can onPage and build links..

    Blakk01,

    Some of the answers here apply however depending on exactly what you are talking about they may only be half true. For example you mentioned ranking a Facebook fan page. You can definitely rank the main page which would include the custom URL and perhaps the about section however don't bother trying to optimize applications or posts because those are not indexed. In fact, large portions of Facebook's site are excluded from search engine's indices.

    Similar circumstances are true for other social networks where a main page or some information on a profile will show up in search but not posts.

    I would concentrate more on getting your own site to rank instead of a social profile.

    Best,

    Shawn

    it's easier than a new domain, new domains tend to get penalized when creating too many links, while established domains don't, even if it's just a page in it like a facebook fanpage.

    Why waste your effort and time on a social profile when you can do a lot more on your money site?
