You can check on right side slightly below corner, when you hover over it, it displays like Currently showing private results and Yeah Google Makes Default show Private results.

So Popular guys like Moz, Quicksprout occupies Top places and at the end you can check Matthew Woodward’s Google + Link is shown. Since I follow him on Google+, I got his link in search results. Trust Me I haven’t put +1 to any of his post at Google +, and still I got his links.

Alternatively, you can check the next screen shot

I changed My default results to Hiding Private results and the following result occurs. Matthew Woodward’s Google+ link is gone. You can also note one thing. In the previous result, Quick Sprout is on #3 and Forbes site on #4.

While Hiding my Private results, Forbes moves to #3 and Quick Sprout is on #4. I have never visited Forbes in my lifetime and yeah I do regularly visit Neil’s Blog.

Great post..

Yes it is not clear whether the social signals enhance rankings or not but these can help us create an impressive web presence which will definitely help you get web traffic.

Using social media platforms can be profitable if used smartly and wisely. Posting latest and good quality content is necessary.

It is somewhat tricky to say out loud that social signals does help or not. But for me, I think it helped me, I published a post on my wordpress blog in February, and gave it a backup with some over 1100 social signals I got from agency, and in just 4 days, the page bumped to the 9th position of the first page, and has been in the 7th since the past 5 weeks. I will be using it for my site directly come April and I think the result be also be good too.

Social signals definitely work, Google likes to see sites shared around, ignore the fact that they are no follow links. Google will give shared sites the highest priority.

I am bit confused there are lots of article on the web and some blogger still saying even google is also saying we are no more taking in our ranking factor , social signal of any site but this is looks wired I tried on site onlinejoboffer.net in some of post And I see increase in ranking in google and also noted good response as well it helped me little bit but the main question is that can we rank with the social signal alone and is is called white hat or gray or black hat SEO link building like to hear your opinion

Reply
    Mohan Raj - September 26, 2016

    Social signals for SEO is purely a white hat technique but it can be achieved by grey hat or black hat techniques too. The thing is White hat gives you good ranking and black hat things doesn’t so much value.
