It is one of the easiest way to communicate to your family, friends or business partners who live out of your country or far from your place. As time goes by, social media websites have developed and they made their websites more user friendly  and entertaining. Friendster.com, was once of the most visited social media website and people had spent a lot of time visiting their Friendster profile each day to get socialized with their online friends and when Facebook.com arrived, people started to spend much longer time on their social media accounts than to attend their personal activities.



Because of the impact of social media to our personal lives, businesses and internet marketers have taken advantage of the situation and they created advertisement on social media websites to promote their business services. 

In SEO, traffic from social media can be aggressively high and the benefits of it for the websites can lead to success of the business. However, not all social media marketing techniques get good results and success. Most of the time, it can be the reason of failure of the business or become lost in the competition of the business industry. It is important to provide only the fact information needed by your target audience to see, information that will help them answer their questions.

On Youtube.com, you can create a video about your business services, news or upcoming events that will help you build a community which brings good traffic to a website.
