WPBlazer's social signals tool tracks content engagement in the social media universe. 

A social signal is a measurable reaction to your content on social media. Likes, views, pins, and shares are examples of signals. The more social signals you get, the more popular the content. Online popularity - which is called social SEO -- is bound to generate hits on your website. 

Social signals likely play a role in page ranking, too. Though the ingredients that go into Google's page ranking algorithm are a well-guarded secret sauce, many SEO experts believe social SEO has an impact on page ranking.

Opening the social signals page

From the WPBlazer app dashboard, select a site and then click the Dashboard icon. A new page displays.

On the new page, hover the mouse pointer on the menu icon that sits third from the top.

On the popup panel, click Social Signals. A new page displays.
