    Thank you for this article Kurt

  2. Do you think that the submissions work better than getting links from established websites? I've found that getting a link often get's a website indexed much quicker.

    I agree that Facebook and social in general can be good sources of traffic when done right. Like just about every other source of traffic it takes thought and effort to create the connections that will bring the traffic from social media.
