"Not directly used for ranking"

I think that's the important take-away :) While it may not influence ranking directly, there are many indirect benefits to having a strong social media presence. Also the question, "whether Google takes social into account for SEO" is a little too vague and easy to downplay. While there may not be direct ranking from social in a broad sense, there are elements of social that will contribute to improving a site ranking in the SERPs... it's just not as simple as:

[make a post on G+/Twitter/FB/LinkedIn/Whatever] = higher ranking

:)

What does "got ranked" mean, specifically, in your case?

:confused:

So are you saying that social media helps generate traffic? or that it improves ranking?
