Good Morning All,

This is a random question, but one i want to clarify...

Is there such a thing as Social Media SEO? By this i mean, are there certain rules and strategies you can follow to boost exposure of posts and profiles on Facebook for example without using paid advertising, just like general SEO strategies.
I have witnessed a debate recently whereby one individual was saying "you shouldn't post duplicate content on Facebook or instagram as it harms the reach and exposure of your posts and profile".

I get the feeling this individual has taken what they have learned from general SEO and trying to apply it to social media. I get the feeling this isnt the case?

i hope that makes sense? I disagree with what they are saying but would like reassurance :)

Yes, rest assured social media content plagiarism is not an issue, as of yet.

Like you mentioned there are social media best practices and the integration of social media channels to your website as part of your SEO strategies, but not in the aspect of duplicate content.

I have not seen any damages to websites that posts duplicate content on social media. I mean we do it all the time especially if we ran out of content. ;)

How do you do SEO for Social Media for pages or profiles? Answer is: You cannot because you are dealing with the platform's algorithm with which you cannot do much. As far as copying the content is concerned. You do not copy it, you curate content. Curating content is acceptable and copying is outright violation of platform's rules. Also, out of many social media strategies curation has worked best for me but curation needs to be appropriate and on point or else one would miserably fail to deliver the message. Since, we are talking about Social Media then you must know that these platforms, especially Facebook has clamped down on the organic reach in order to get more advertisers pay for showing their content to masses. Organically, things still go viral but that is the type of content that starts like a wildfire, even the curated ones.

social media where your business name profiles interact with different community members
and SEO where your business get hits from different keywords and rank on them with onpage and off page activities.
