Established SEO Opening Up to Social Media Marketing

Established Search Engine Optimization (SEO) guru Konrad Braun finally admits social media traffic may be worth pursuing if traffic volume is the desired outcome.

Kelowna, Canada - January 3, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Konrad Braun - blogger at - recently shared his new-found belief in social media website traffic. Although he is usually a strong search engine marketing guy, he says there is something magical about getting traffic from sources like Facebook.

"Don't get me wrong" says Braun, "I absolutely love getting search engine traffic and still believe it to be one of the best sources one can get website traffic from simply because if people come to your site through the search engines, chances are pretty good they are looking for exactly the information you provide on the site. Meaning this type of website traffic is extremely targeted and is easy to sell to!"

When asking what opened his mind about social media traffic - specifically facebook traffic - Braun said: "It's really a long story, but basically what happened is my wife - a well known food blogger - was having a hard time getting a lot of targeted traffic to her website from the search engines. Like, she got some traffic but not a lot. Yet, when she shared her pictures and recipes on social media, she started getting a fair bit of traffic instantaneously."

Braun continued "Then one day took the Moolah Facebook Page Strategies course - a now popular facebook marketing course by Rachel Miller - and within a few short months she grew her facebook following from roughly 6000 followers to over 100,000 followers. Of course the traffic she was able to generate from facebook followed suit. It was just unbelievable."

When asked if he would consider getting out of search engine optimization (SEO) and go full force into social media traffic instead, Braun insisted "No, I don't think I will ever quit doing SEO just because I absolutely love it and more importantly, search engine traffic is still the most qualified traffic you can get to a website. What I could see myself do though is do both: Facebook marketing and search engine marketing."

Braun says doing both would insure he not only gets a lot of traffic, but gets highly qualified traffic to his website as well. Essentially harvesting the benefits and advantages for both.
