    facebook shares, google+, retweets, I understand thats a social signal.

    but what about when people say use syndwire for social signals. or fcs networker. soup. bitly. bitdo,. foursquire. deviantart. goodis. scoopit. stumbleupon. etc I don't understand these are social signals to?
    and what makes them a social signal is if you make a post on them with a hyperlink going to your money site? or when you put a hyperlink in their bio?

    I'm just trying to figure this out. I read people saying 'get social signals' but I don't fully understand.

    ty in advance.

    I might be wrong here, but from what I've read and heard, social signals is a very broad term. It refers to posting the URL of your moneysite on social networks sites (facebook,twitter, pinterest etc) but it also refers to getting traffic from social network sites.

    Yup, most of what you said is right, however it has nothing to do with getting traffic from social network sites (thats just a passive effect that comes with if the social signals are real)

    Basically, a social signal is a backlink created by activity on social media (share / like / favorite / whatever)

    Social signals are signals from social networks.. meaning that if you get a backlink from a social media website, it`s a social signal, usually :p
