Social signals do not directly affect Google ranking

+Matt Cutts said it.
+John Mueller said it.
+Mark Traphagen said it.

This updated piece is just as relevant and valuable as when it was originally published.
 
Google Uses Facebook and Twitter to Rank Web Pages, Right?

WRONG!

So says Google's +Matt Cutts, and so says I.

In my article below I go in-depth into the reasons why Google is not (yet) using social signals as a direct ranking factor, but also how to correctly place social in your search traffic-driving strategy.
To what extent do signals from social sites such as Facebook & Twitter have an effect on Google search rankings?

"Making it on the web, now, is harder than ever. The competition is tough, standing out from the crowd is difficult and you can no longer afford to take any shortcuts regarding quality. By the same token, when things are done right, it is also more possible than ever before."

I honestly don't know how +David Amerland keeps his brain from exploding.

There is an elegant simplicity to it all as well as a huge excitement factor. Dive in, find out what you should be doing: http://goo.gl/TWTtUC

But...but...but...I don't want to be FORCED to marry a gay man!
Or my dog. Or my refrigerator.
Okay, the dog might be pretty cool, we already share a bed...she doesn't laugh or wretch when I get naked.

Seriously, I saw pictures of a TON of people that were overjoyed by the decision. The only ones angry are the people it doesn't affect.

Bravo, Wranglerstar!

What a beautiful tribute to a man who knew and respected fine hand tools. From a man who appreciates that legacy.

Hand sharpening that many teeth is a labor of love.

Bravo!

Sorry to break the news to you. The "Law" of Attraction is bunk. Wishing won't make it so.
But...there is hope. A small distinction in vocabulary. A refinement in mindset.

Please take a moment to join me in wishing Happy Birthday to +Marc Ensign. A man on a mission. To save the Internet. 
Have something you really want? Chances are you probably won't get it and here's why.

When your "holy" text uses less words in the body than it needs in the footnotes, explaining why it doesn't mean what it actually says, maybe it's not that holy.

Very nice. I can't see spending the extra money for the pathfinder. There are too many excellent knives in this category for under $100. I like the thick spine of the Cold Steel. I would also consider the Ka-Bar Becker BK22 for the same reason.

Stainless is a no-brainer in a damp environment, though I've never had a big problem caring for my traditional carbon steel knives.

I enjoyed the cutaway to +survivalmike. Great insight.

There is a video of LT Wright on Prepared Minds 101 that shows them take a knife from start to end. There are a couple of days for drying and heating, other than that they manage to pop the knife off in about 4 hours. I just don't happen to feel a knife like that is worth what they are asking for it. JMHO.

I'm unemployable. How about you?
