    Anymore? It never did matter. Facebook and Twitter are just another websites with big authority and if they can crawl them they give credit for the links.

    OP that's a old story. What he said indirectly is google count's G+ singals. If he come up with a video saying we treat G+ signals as strong indicator then it will be his shame less plug. So instead of doing that, he said Twitter and FB signals doesn't matters.

    I wouldn't pay too much attention to what he says! He says a lot of things and a lot of people find that what he says works, doesn't work and what he says doesn't work, do in fact work!

    One of my sites ranks pretty well from only social signals alone, but they are easy to rank keywords and the social signals are real users (insomuch that I didn't buy any tweets, likes or +1s) and I get a few everyday.

    I agree, Social Media loves to share neat & interesting things (especially video/music/images that AREN'T commercial-esque).
    Best part is - more of Social Media is being used by adults so less problems with kids & no money.

    Don't believe everything you read on the Internet, especially if MC boogieman is involved.

    I, beginning to think google only wants to give a handful of sites authority and if you don't have links from there then you get nothing. Doesn't really make since cause then the web would be boring featuring same sites over and over. I wouldn't trust him. It makes more since to rank by social signals, the power of the people is the power of the web. The discovery part of the web was so interesting, now it seems to becoming more and more of the same, kind of boring, cannot wait for someone to take over Google and make their algorithm simple... You rank if you have people sharing you, if your not using spam, and if you have quality content and links. Googles results are listing same sites many times.
