Have you got your ducks in a row?

Social Media seems to be engulfing us nowadays both online and off-line.

Not a day goes by without a mention in the news of the latest innovation or issue from Facebook or Twitter.

Or the latest social platform that’s sure to be “the next big thing”; Pinterest?

With this mind you would think that companies would be obsessed with trying to find ways to use Social Media to drive business. According to research by BlueCaribu it is in fact Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO, that is still dominating businesses thoughts, with 9.1 million related searches every month.

This Google Trends graph corroborates their research showing the search term SEO has stayed well ahead of Social Media from 2004 right up to the present day:
