    Hi BHW,

    If this question is dumb, please forgive me.

    I know social signals, are important, but how important are they? For example, are "social blasts" necessary or is "regular traffic" good enough to rank well?

    The threads I found on BHW are older or involve social signals being very important for your PBN links, are they required for the money site/main site as well or is the traffic from your real clients to the blog etc. sufficient? Are they just to justify backlinks?

    This is my existing traffic over 30 days (image below). When I post an article on the blog, I just put the link on the Social brand pages. Should I be doing more (blasts for example) to be more effective from an SEO standpoint?

    Will my conversion rate be higher with social signals associated with blasts etc. or are the organic signals okay?

    Sorry for all of the questions in one post. I'm just very confused with there being so many social signal packages out there etc.

    One thing that you need to know why people are using social networks is that they are free and have very many active users which you can easily convert to become your loyal customers. Facebook is one of the social network where when well planned can give you results that are very appealing. The social signals contribute a lot to your traffic and ranking.

    Do social signals matter somewhere in the Google algo? Yes.

    How much do they matter? No idea.

    There is no reason to not use social signals in your SEO plan.

    So are organic signals like this fine or are social blasts and paid signals preferred?

    Organic is always preferred over anything else but if you don't get many natural social signals you should buy them.

    For SEO, they offer CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE of link value

    This is not a slam dunk though since search engines don't DIRECTLY FACTOR THEM IN like backlinks

    The thinking is the more social signals a page gets the higher the likelihood it will attract links

    So what does this mean to link builders?

    Focus on building links and make sure you have enough social signal volume to 'mask' the fact that you're building links

    Social signals blast won't get you anywhere. I've done that before. Organic signals are the way to go as they're coming naturally from real visitors.
