    Social Media Optimization is about getting publicity for your business or website through various social media. Social media includes social networking sites such as FaceBook and Twitter, social bookmarking sites such as Digg, RSS feeds and forums such as this one.

    One approach to social media optimization is to make your content very attractive so that people who see it are very willing to link to it and tell their friends about it, on the various social media sites they use.

    Social media optimization (SMO) is the process by which you make your content easily shareable across the social web. Because so many options exist for where people can view your content, the content model for the web has shifted from, “We have to drive as much traffic to our website as possible,” to the more pragmatic, “We have to ensure as many people see our content as possible.”

    I think one of the most important factors is to continuously post fresh and unique content.

    Social media optimization is a SEO technique in which we analysis the social media traffic, backlinks from such sites and the daily response that we get on behalf of using these sites. Social media plays an important role in promotion of our site or business.

    If you go for that my advice is to have a way to measure the results of SMO as it can mean a lot of work for little or no results. I believe effectiveness of SMO depends very much on the kind of products or services you offer but generally at least in my experience results were not really worth the efforts.

In general, social media optimization refers to optimizing an internet site and its content in terms of sharing across social media and networking sites.

    Social Media Optimisation, also known as Social Marketing Optimisation or SMO is becoming increasingly important as the internet matures. The sheer popularity of social networking websites such as mySpace, FaceBook and Bebo together with numerous other social media sites such as YouTube, Technorati and Squidoo and bookmarking sites such as Digg are far too powerful to ignore.

    SMO (Social Media Optimization) is a SEO term and doesn't need to have anything to do with branding, publicity or creating awareness of your webpage or your company. It just means that you are using social media to get incoming links to you website. Getting links from social media is important to establish a strong and natural link profile.
