Twitter SEO Tips

Filed under: SEO — admin @ 9:01 am

If you didnt already know, Google index’s tweets. This is a good reason to be very specific when you tweet url’s & blog posts. Not only does twitter get indexed, it also creates an inbound link to your website, for your target seo titles. I’m going to tweet this post after I write it. Rather then saying New Blog post – Twitter SEO Tips with a url in the tweet. A better way would be, Twitter SEO Tips, Blog post and the url.

As you can see from my google search the third item that comes up from @webtechbc is my twitter account. It’s a good idea to optimize your profile as well. As an example mine is… Vancouver SEO, Web Design & Photography. I’m also @photodreamz

The website link is I state clearly what I do in the first few characters so that google finds this on my profile. I also include a back-link to my other blog with-in the profile. You will see from the image below that my twitter profile comes up in the top three searches for my website name.

Keep your character length in mind as well when you tweet a url. You never may who may want to re-tweet you. If you leave room for them it makes it easier. I try to leave 15 to 20 characters of space as an example.

Tweet other people’s blog posts, and they will likely do the same for you. is a great tool for tracking stats on posts. If you tweet url’s regularly you can see who is linking to you, and return the favor, by tweeting the posts on their blog. Don’t forget to hashtag your tweet. If I have an interesting SEO article I might use #seo or photographs of Vancouver? #vancouver #photography. Using hashtags help to drive traffic to your tweets and blog post.

While lots of people know the advantages of promoting your site on twitter, I see very few people do it properly. A few small adjustments to your tweeting can do wonders for your seo.
