How Mobile Responsiveness and Social Media Affect SEO

Insert Mobile Sitemap – If you have a responsive website your standard mobile sitemap will work just fine. Unless you have a feature-phone version of your site (WAP/WML, etc), then you need to insert separate mobile sitemap.

Add a Viewport Metatag – Viewport Meta tags delivers information to search engines that your web page is optimized for mobile browsers which will prioritize them over websites with no such tags. You can find a listing of all viewport sizes here.

Add an Apple icon – An Apple Icon is the graphic element that will be shown when a user saves your website on their home screen in iOS. If you are missing this element, iOS will generate a compressed thumbnail of your website and display it as the icon instead. This may lead to some visually unappealing results that you will not want your users to see.

Include Tweet Button – Adding one more step will make a difference. In this case, adding a tweet button will increase the social presence of your pages and allow visitors to share your content more easily.

Add a Facebook Share or Like Button – Similar to the tweet button above, a share button acts only in your favor when you need to popularize your content while a big amount of likes can sway new potential customers to your products or services.

Insert outgoing links on your blog – Linking other good sources of information is always a plus when we talk about SEO. This increases your authority and helps your website grow. Also, the mix of incoming and outgoing links from your blog will appear as "natural" under the eyes of Google.
