Tip: For better SEO, find links to your socials and ask for them to be switched to your website

If you're active on social media, people will often link to your profile instead of your website. Get more of that sweet link juice by tracking these links down and requesting a change.

Links to your socials are great, but they don't (directly) help your SEO. Luckily, this is easily remedied. Find people who are linking to one of your socials (but not your website) by heading to the Link Intersect tool on Ahrefs or a similar tool like SEMrush. Add your social URLs to the "show me who is linking" section and add your website to the "doesn't link to" section. Then all you've got to do is take the results and reach out via email, a contact form, or a DM. Ask them to replace the link with your website's URL. And just like that, you've got another backlink strengthening your SEO. This is particularly helpful if you're pretty active on social media, as people will often quote posts.
