Social networking sites are growing in number and are increasing in popularity year after year. The influence on rankings of social networking sites, such as Linkedin, Facebook, and MySpace, depends on the unique visitors and total members of a specific social networking site for a period of time, such as a month or an entire year.
NetRatings has reported on the top social sites for 2007, and MySpace is still on top of the heap, with 58.6 million total unique visitors in September.
Advertisers, digital marketers and website owners can all take advantage of the rankings of social networking sites. These sites accommodate advertisements from websites, and with the millions of visitors to these social sites, this promotional tool can help obtain targeted traffic.
The influence on rankings of social networking sites can also affect the ranking of websites. A highly-ranked social site is an ideal location for the advertising of your products and services.
