Can I tell you one of the most common misconceptions in SEO?

Social Media backlinks are not pointless.

I get why many marketers think they are (perhaps including you). It’s because they’re no follow and they don’t ‘count’ in the realms of usual SEO.

But the truth is that social signals play a role as a ranking factor. And, there is a lot of attention on Social Media that just isn’t going away.

If you ignore social media links you’re ignoring a large portion of your potential audience.

People are clicking links and finding new sites in their news feed all the time. It’s time that yours was one of them too.

In this guide I’ve outlined 28 ways you can build social media backlinks that will boost your traffic and your social signals…

What You’ll Learn

Firstly I’ve tried to avoid the obvious ideas like, “Drop a link in your status”. Because you know how to do that.

Instead I want to explore ideas you may not have thought of, or might be overlooking. So here’s what you’ll learn:

  • 28 ways to build social media backlinks effectively
  • How to track links from social profiles
  • How to place links effectively without spamming

How to Track Your Social Media Backlinks

You’re likely a bit skeptical about this whole “social backlinks gets clicks” thing. To help with this, why not track the social media clicks you are getting from your social media.

The easiest way to track social media backlinks is with UTM parameters and Google Analytics. For example, if you used the following links on LinkedIn profile…

http://matthewwoodward.co.uk/?utm_source=linkedin.com&utm_medium=social&utm_content=content+info&utm_campaign=social+profile

http://matthewwoodward.co.uk/?utm_source=linkedin.com&utm_medium=social&utm_content=projects&utm_campaign=social+profile

http://matthewwoodward.co.uk/?utm_source=linkedin.com&utm_medium=social&utm_content=publications&utm_campaign=social+profile

Google Analytics would be able to tell you that you got clicks to your website from your LinkedIn profile from each of these sections: contact info, projects and publications.

You’d find this information in:

Acquisitions > Campaigns > All Campaigns

That’s located here in Google Analytics:

all campaigns menu
.
However be aware that you can’t use UTM parameters on all of your social profiles. For example, on Twitter, you would end up with a really long link in the website field.

On any social network that displays the full URL for your website, you can only use UTM parameters if you shorten your URL with Bit.ly or a similar service. This tactic might not be a good strategy for branding purposes though as people are sometimes wary of Bit.ly links.

So let’s look at all of the places where you can – and should – add links to your social profiles, pages and groups.

Facebook Link Building

First, we’ll start with the most popular social network of them all.

Link #1: Your Personal Profile’s About Tab

When someone visits your personal profile on Facebook, you’ll want to connect them to your website.

To do this, add your website link in the website field under Contact and Basic Info on your About tab:

facebook example

Be sure to mark this field as public so everyone can see it, regardless of whether they are connected to you. When someone’s not even logged into Facebook, they’ll still see your website link in the bottom right column of your profile.

You can also link up your Facebook page to your Facebook profile by adding it as your current employer.

This link will give visitors to your personal profile two ways to connect to your website and business.

Link #2: All Your Personal Profile And Page Posts

Obviously, you can add a link to a Facebook post and drive traffic to your website. But what about those posts that aren’t links to articles?

Facebook now links any reference to a domain.com. Anytime you post something to your wall – especially posts that are publicly visible – add your website URL in that manner.

For example, you could say thanks to someone for including your website when sharing a link to an article mentioning you:

link in facebook update

You could use it when you’re sharing quotes you’ve written, quotes published on your blog, statistics published on your website and so on.

You could sign every post you write on your Facebook wall with your domain like this.

Think of it like part of an email signature.

If the updates are public, your followers and anyone who visits your profile will see your website link in your latest update.

For those currently capitalizing on Facebook’s love of video sharing, this tactic can help you get your website URL out to hundreds of thousands of viewers. Or even millions…

buzzfeed examples

Remember this little factoid – it works just about everywhere on Facebook. Posts, profile tabs, page tabs, groups, etc.

Link #3: Your Page’s About Tab

Your Facebook page’s about tab gives you lots of opportunities to link back to your website, especially thanks to the domain.com links.

page info facebook
At bare minimum, you need to use the website link as that will show up on your page:

facebook backlink
You can get double the benefits by including your domain.com in your page’s short description and using a landing page in the website field.

For example, you could have a link to your best lead magnet’s squeeze page in the website field.

Link #4: Page Buttons

As well as your page’s about box, you can also have page buttons that work as a call to action to your followers.

These are the big blue buttons that show up under your cover image. To edit them just hover over them to reveal this drop down menu:

page buttons
And then edit the button to include a link back to your site.

Link #5: Your Profile And Cover Photo Descriptions

This area is the spot that most people forget. But when someone clicks on your cover photo or your profile photo (on your personal profile or your page), they’ll get the lightbox with your photo.

To the right of the photo, you have the perfect opportunity to link to your website. Take HubSpot, for example. They use their cover photo to advertise a lead magnet:
profile and cover photo link

It’s the perfect way to get people to click on that cover photo and then on through to your website.

Link #6: Your Group Description

Do you have a Facebook group attached to your site? Don’t let the description go to waste!

Get your domain in the first 96 characters so that when anyone visits your Facebook group, they’ll see your website:

group description

 

Link #7: Facebook Group Pinned Posts

In your Facebook Groups you can also pin posts to the top so they’re the first links that anybody sees when they come to your site.

You can incorporate this and get a big hit of traffic:

facebook pinned post

This is particularly effective if you’re running a group where members can add other members!

Twitter Link Building

Twitter may not be the powerhouse that it once was; but this bird is far from dead. Let’s look at how you can get some social link juice from here:

Link #8: Your Twitter Website Field

This is a no-brainer.

When you’re setting up your accounts be sure to enter your website so that it shows up as a clickable link on your profile page:

twitter feed

Link #9: Your Twitter Bio

Yes, you have a website field on your Twitter profile. But you can also have a link in your actual 160-character bio, giving you the opportunity to share your link twice!

twitter bio

Why does that spot matter? Not only does it give you the chance to share two different links to your website, but the link in your bio will show up in other places on Twitter, like search results.

twitter search results

The link you put in your profile’s website field won’t show up here.

There are also a lot of sites that lift your Twitter bio information for profiles, such as Klout. It won’t get the URL in your website field, but it will get the one in your 160-character bio.

klout homepage
Some of these types of sites are giving out followed links, so be sure to give them the chance to grab yours.

Note that while Twitter will hyperlink domain.com without the http://, other sites (like Klout) that pull your bio will only hyperlink if the http:// is included.

Link #10: Your Photo And Video Tweets

Notice that box of photos and videos? It is created when you share photos and videos in tweets. If you’re sharing photos and videos to Twitter, make sure you include a link to your website.

This way, when someone clicks on one of those thumbnails, they’ll get your website URL in the lightbox. Otherwise, they’ll just get this.

photo and video tweets

For those of you sharing viral quote images and funny videos, this applies especially to you. If you get retweeted, you’ll want your link out there for everyone to click.

LinkedIn Link Building

Connecting with professionals? Here are some great social backlinks for your LinkedIn profile, page and groups.

Link #11: Your Profile’s Contact Info

Your profile’s contact info tab allows you to add up to three links. These links will be shown at the top of your LinkedIn profile for non-logged in users.

profile link linkedin

Be sure to use all three and customize the anchor text for them by choosing other instead of choosing the other options they offer when adding a link (company, blog, website, etc.).

Also, track clicks from these links with UTM parameters.

Link #12:  Your Profile’s Projects And Publications

The contact info tab is obscure at best for logged in users. For this reason, you’ll want to add your website link to other sections of your LinkedIn profile. Specifically the projects and publications sections.

Your websites can easily be projects:

project link

Your best blog posts and lead magnets (white papers, ebooks, reports, etc.) can easily be publications.

publication link

Both of these sections puts a direct link from your LinkedIn profile to your websites and landing pages without having to rely on visitors clicking that little Contact Info tab.

You can track clicks from these links with UTM parameters too!

Link #13: Your Company’s Basic Information

LinkedIn company pages allow you to enter your website URL as a part of your basic information.

company basic info
In lieu of the former products and services tab, there are now showcase pages that you can create under the umbrella of your LinkedIn company page.

You can add your product or service landing page URL to the corresponding showcase page:

clickbank university example
You can also post updates to both your company page and showcase pages, so be sure to do so to give your followers more chances to click through to your website.

Link #14: Your Group’s Website

If you own a LinkedIn group, you can add a website to the group information during setup or in the group settings:

group website
This information shows up by default to anyone who isn’t a member of your group. So if someone clicks on your group to join it, they’ll be introduced to your website as well.

Link #15: Group Announcements

Owning a LinkedIn group has a special advantage over Facebook groups. LinkedIn group owners can send Announcements – basically large group emails – to their members.

That’s right. Once a week, you can legitimately get in the inbox of people who haven’t opted into your mailing list.

Just go to your group’s management menu and choose the send announcement feature.

group announcements
If you haven’t been motivated to create a LinkedIn group before, here’s the best reason to now.

YouTube Link Building

Video an integral part of your business? Well it can now be a part of your backlinking strategy, too.

Link #16: YouTube About Page

This about page link comes with two perks. Firstly, you get a prominent placement on your about page where people are likely to click back to your blog:

youtube about
But this also comes with a second perk. When people land on your YouTube channel page, those links will also be displayed beneath your header image:

subscribe image
Because of the proximity of this button to the subscribe button, it’s going to get a lot of attention. And is a link that is really worth having.

Link #17: Video Descriptions

Every video has a description. And, while it may look greyed out to the naked eyes, it’s a clickable link when you hover over it:

video descriptions
Try having this in the first 25-50 words of your video description.

Pinterest Link Building

Pinning your website content for traffic? Here’s what you need to know about social backlinks from Pinterest.

Link #18: Your Profile Link

You only get one link on Pinterest, so you need to use it!

pinterest
Pinterest will also ask you to verify your link, which allows you to unlock the next place to get links on Pinterest…

Link #19: Rich Pins

Rich Pins allow you to post photos and images to Pinterest as if you would be doing it with an article on Facebook.

Meaning that you can seamlessly attach a link back to your content at the end of your pin:

rich pins
Affiliate marketers tip: if you’ve pinned stuff from Amazon, edit the link to include your Amazon Associate’s URL. While Pinterest is cracking down on affiliate links on pins, they haven’t seemed to catch this one. Yet.

Make it an obscure tracking ID for best results.

If you’re linking to your own website, use your UTM parameters to track the clicks.

Instagram Link Building

Instagram doesn’t give you a lot of options for links. But the links they do give you get used. Why else would people be pouring money into the advertising and marketing efforts there?

Link #20: Your Profile Link

You can – and should – add a link to your Instagram profile. Preferably add it with some icons that draw people’s attention to it.

insta profile
That link will also get some love from the desktop version of your Instagram profile when people find your profile in search.

Link #21: Instagram Stories

Instagram Stores now let you add links when you create them. This isn’t a permanent link and it’ll disappear.

instagram stories
But if you’re creating a story that is relevant to a topic you’ve featured, put on in there with a strong call to action.

Quora Social Link Building

Quora is a social media platform I feel more marketers should be using than they are. There’s lots of referral traffic in it, if you do it right.

Link #22: Your Profile

Like every other platform on this list, you get a link back to your site. Only this time it’s in your description and you have to hyperlink it yourself:

quora social link building profile

Link #23: Your Answers

Definitely include links back to your site and content in your answers to people.

This content can be seen for months, or years, afterwards. And having one link there can create a good amount of referral traffic in the long run.

quora answers
But don’t just spam. Be sure to add value with the comment.

Other Ideas For Social Media Backlinks

Link #24: WhatsApp Status?

Did you know you can add links to your WhatsApp Status?

All you have to do is go to settings, click your profile picture and insert the link:

whatsapp status

Link #25: Video Streaming Sites

Do you do any live videos as part of your marketing campaigns?

If so, you should consider streaming them through services like Twitch and Periscope, so that you can include links there too.

video streaming sites
People can find your videos organically through these sites, so this is a great extra place to have them.

Link #26: Do An AMA

If you get the opportunity to do an AMA (ask me anything) on sites like Inbound, you’ll get some followed links in your introduction.

ama example
Since people are coming to get your expertise, they’ll likely be interested in learning more about you and connecting with you through your website.

Link #27: Add Comments To Online Discussions

Sites like Reddit can be brutal if they deem you a spammer. But they’ll love you if you’re being helpful.

Dropping a link in as part of a discussion helps you get a followed link and keeps you from being deemed a spammer if you do it the right way. Like this.

reddit social backlinks
It’s a discussion in the appropriate subreddit as opposed to a link share. And it performed pretty well.

Link #28: Check Out Other Social Backlinks

Did you know there are over 500 social networks out there? KnowEm has them listed on their website.

You can even have them create your profiles for you for a fee.

Wrapping It Up…

I hope that you’ve gone out and created some social media backlinks with the profiles, pages and communities you have – or that you are going out to do them now.

And I hope that you’ve discovered a few new ways to build some clickable social media backlinks!

Did I miss any social link building opportunities? If so, share them in the comments!

    Hi Matt,
    Very powerful post, but perhaps too many profiles (knowem lists hundreds of social media sites) without activity could damage. Do you recommend some type of autopilot to keep alive some of them?

    P.D. I was reading this post in my mobile and the lateral widget (Rankcracker and Subscription form) just appeared and cover all the screen (could read the article only to the point of the trigger). Perhaps this plugin is anti-responsive.

      There is no such thing as white hat. The second you build any kind of links you violate webmaster guidelines regardless of what it is or how you built it.

    Another great post Mat. Looking forward to seeing what you are offering at the SEO meet up in London in a couple of months.

    Social noise is going to matter even more after April 21st and Google’s split search for mobiles. I’m predicting (oh dear, I might regret this) that The Big G will value social noise even higher for their mobile index. Maybe reducing the value on desktop searches, but pretty certain mobile will rely heavily on social proof.

    And a almost real time index as well. So you can experiment and promote without too much concern of the re-assessment process taking weeks or months.

    What say you Matty :) ?

      And its not often we know the exact date a Google search update is going to happen – April 21st. You can be sure I have everything in play to meet that deadline as well :)

      I’m not sure if Google need to seperate mobile/desktop algos over and above the mobile layout update and site speed.

    Great all-in-one post! A complete social profile including the website information gives out a signal that you care, but many (i’ve been guilty of this) keep postponing that. A minute spent doing that goes a long way in establishing better credibility.

    Getting the link through Instagram profile was new for me. The Reddit example is good as well.

    Finally: “did you know there are over 500 social networks out there” – all we now need is a tool to create profiles on all those sites in 15 min flat :). Suggestions?

    These were some great tips Matt! I knew most of them but definitely learned a few. Like the Klout link not working if there is no HTTP. So I simply changed to custom bio on Klout and fixed it! Also the CTA on your FB banner is clever. Not sure how many people actually click on that, but everything adds up. I have recently found Reddit to be a great source of traffic. I usually link to “how to” articles on my site and as long you help them fix their problem they won’t be flagged as spam/removed.

    • Matthew Woodward
      March 15th, 2015 at 8:22 am

      SEO means, search engine optimisation. As in, optimising for search engines. So as long as search engines exist we can optimise for them. Anyone that says SEO is dead is an idiot that should be ignored and/or are an unskilled SEO.

    That’s a pretty comprehensive roundup of all the major social players. Really like the trick of popping a link in the text by the cover image / profile photo. Had done that over on G+ but forgot to do the same on Facebook, so thanks for the reminder!

    Possibly one to add would be Tagboard, which gives you the option of linking not just to your website but also to your main social profiles as well, e.g. https://tagboard.com/smrtlcl/83890

    Hi Matthew. Thanks for the excellent information. I’m new at affiliate marketing and this article is a great resource! Please forgive me if you covered this already, and I missed it, but I’m not sure which name I should be using for social media profile names.

    Should I use my personal name or website name (not the entire URL, but the shorten version, like MyBlog) for the profile name. I understand my url needs to go in the URL field. Thanks!

    7.19.2017

    IMO, Instant Messengers are under rated for link sharing

    The WhatsApp tip you mentioned have been on my mind for past 4 months and recently started suggesting my clients to use IMs for link sharing.

    Another way to use IM is to use the “Status” feature of WhatsApp to promote time sensitive offers (perfectly fits the “1 day left” promotions”) as it lasts for 24 hours.

    One can also add a promotional image in place of the DP. This tip can work for any Instant Messenger.

    • Matthew Woodward
      July 19th, 2017 at 1:13 pm

      Yes they can be effective as well for traffic rather than links

        Base on what you said

        ”Can I tell you one of the most common misconceptions in SEO?
        Social Media backlinks are not pointless.
        I get why many marketers think they are (perhaps including you). It’s because they’re no follow and they don’t ‘count’ in the realms of usual SEO.”

        I know the post is about social link but what I was asking for is a followed link.

        Well thanks for the great post.

    A great list to work through. Thank you for sharing this Matt. I know a lot of people just not have the time to go through this one by one. Just because of this article I received a few new clients because being a virtual assistant a few clients contacted me to go through this list and get the links added on their profiles. Saved them a lot of time and the new business coming in was good for me too :). A great help.

    G**, it’s been ages but good to see quality posts on your blog, Matt.
    Great suggestions.

    One comment though: For Pinterest. Watch out when you’re submitting multiple pins (that are your own/link to your own stuff) to groups on Pinterest. Pinterest has a weird algorithm and your account can get suspended indefinitely or banned from the social media site, if they smell too much self-promotion.

    1 pin per day submitted to a group/a board is safe, though. :)

    If you ave more than one link pointing to the same page on any one page, Google will only count the first one. Is that right Matt?

    Second, I’m stunned by how you take the time to answer each and every one of the posts. I can tell that you’re taking it very seriously and treat every comment like it’s the only comment on the post. Amazing, well done.

    Thanks for the http://knowem.com citation Matt. I am going through each social network they list and creating a profile for my business with link back to my site. Some of them also have their own lists of even more networks.. Most of them can link to each other as well which I believe could also be helpful.. By the time I’m finished I will literally have hundreds of new backlinks and business citations scattered all over the net and all linking to each other like a big spider web.
