Social Media Icons

Author : check buzz

Do you think that creating a stunning website and merely publishing it on the Internet is enough to gain a recognizable place on the web. What if the knowledgeable content and resourceful blogs on your website remain idle and are not visible on the Internet? It is something like you have the guts and the power to bring a change but don’t know the way to do it. Therefore, you gotta show what you've got 'coz it is rightly said, “it only sells when you present it”.

To increase your website ranking on search engines and to boost your blogs on various social networking sites, you need some colorful tags. Wanna know what are these tags called? The answer is – Icons. Yes, what I mean here is that you need to market your website just like you market your product.

Now, coming up to the main ingredient of your web marketing tool i.e. icons. Each social networking site floating on the Internet is recognizable with a symbol called Icon.

The social media icons works like a gravitational force that drives the viewer’s traffic to your websites and blogs. You can choose among the thousands of icons available on web, tailor them as per your theme of content and blog. Some available on web are colorful and shiny whereas some have a corporate look. Hand drawn (sketches & wooden) are also available.

To get a good call or attention of viewers you need to be strategic for the selection icons, their positioning, color, size, approach and theme. You also need to keep in mind that you do not distract your viewers from the original purpose i.e. from the real content of your site. In my opinion, show what you have, in a easily accessible manner for the visitor. The social media link should directly solve the purpose of the search and gives the best solution without any trouble.

There are more benefits attached to the placing up of a tiny, shiny and sophisticated icon at your website. They actually make your website look more organized and attractive. Don’t you think placing a small picture is much more meaningful than a couple of words as they say pictures have no language boundaries.

If yes then: Go get up……Get your site bombarded with icons………………..albeit in a strategic way!!!!!!!!!!
