    Just in case you want to read the whole study, here it is:

    Great information – but the graph is very hard to digest as when its readable you can’t see everything because it soo big! Im suprised they didnt mention blogging – so far even as a brand heavily participating in social engagements that is the only thing I have found to make the bing metric move :)

    Correlation is not causality… bla bla bla.

    Are this pages well ranked because they’re popular on social medias or they’re popular beacause they’re visible on SE ?

    Quality content and the social signals are the key and natural way of getting higher rank in Google as well as in Bing.

    Social signals with relevancy is one of the important factor to get higher ranking in Bing. Also well optimized landing page with correct Meta tags is the key thing to rank higher in Bing. I think this point has been not mentioned in this blog.

    Can you explain little bit more on it?

  • Kevin

    Aren’t social signs more of an effect caused by high rankings rather than a cause for high rankings? I mean, a high ranking site gets more visitors thus more likes/shares… It’s a vicious cycle aaargh

  • Kevin

    Exactly!

    Can you explain what the numbers mean? Google + 1′s, .34, etc?

    -.04 for Keywords in the URL. Yet virtually every search I can do on Bing 70% of the top 10 results have a keyword rich domain. Again I know correlation =! causation, but these results are uncanny.

    Social Indicators = higher rankings.
    Great, another incentive for millions of self proclaimed gurus to fire off content in every social site possible and building likes/follows/fans/+1s with reckless abandon. That should add a great deal of quality to the SERPs.

    Sincerely,
    Social Spammer
