    One thing you need to understand about social marketing is that it's not a passive, set-it-and-forget-it thing. Okay, you've set up a Facebook/G+ thingy and put like buttons on your web site. Cool. That gives you a number you can show to people (investors, advertisers) -- but by now anyone with an iota of savvy has figured out that the number of likes means nothing. Whether you want to get investment, advertisers or just drive people to your web site for your own nefarious world-conquering purposes, you need engagement. That means posting things that are clickworthy to your social media pages and/or tweeting all of the time. Let it go more than a few days, and people forget who you are. Pummel them with spam, and they'll remember, but not in a good way. They'll not only unlike/unfollow/-1 you, but you've just created a viral word-of-mouth campaign that's just about the opposite of what you want.

    "Tricky" SEO is no longer a real thing. If you find a new trick, you can bet that that hole will be plugged with a vengeance in short order. Google, Facebook, Twitter and all of the rest of them have their own bottoms and bottom lines to look after now, and they don't need anything showing up that's going to hurt their utility or perceived value. If you want to do "SEO" (which is really just another name for effective marketing), you first have to offer real value. If you've got nothing to sell that anyone wants to buy, it really doesn't matter what else you do. If you've got something that people want (or that you can convince them they want) then you don't need tricks -- just hard work.

    In my point of view social media marketing is the process of marketing by social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.. By utilizing the social aspect of the web, social media marketing is able to connect and interact on a much more personalized and dynamic level than through traditional marketing. Social media marketing can gain a lot of traffic to your website...

    Social Media Marketing (SBM) is a best tool to generate traffic on a website/blog. SBM helps the webmaster to increase the volum of traffic and increase the Page Rank (PR) of the site.
    The right market and genuine traffic creates new potentials for the webs owners to maintain their repute over internet. It is most adoptable tool now a day's...!

    Hi friend,

    Social media itself is a catch-all term for sites that may provide radically different social actions. Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining website traffic or attention through social media sites. It is the process of marketing through social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

    Social media marketing (SMM) is a form of Internet marketing that utilizes social networking websites as a marketing tool. The goal of SMM is to produce content that users will share with their social network to help a company increase brand exposure and broaden customer reach. One of the key components of SMM is social media optimization (SMO). Like search engine optimization (SEO), SMO is a strategy for drawing new and unique visitors to a website.

SMM is Social Media Marketing which includes promotion of websites through Social Bookmarking, networking websites, forums posting, blog and article posting, and many more.

    I doubt the credibility of your question, your signature links shows that you run SEO services and its quite amusing to know that being a SEO guy you don't know about SMM (Social Media Marketing) ?
