BEST TOP 10 TWITTER SEO TIPS:
Your competitors may already be on social media for a long time and may be already having a good number of daily visitors on their site. But, you need not to fear, you still have enough time to start optimizing your Twitter presence before your random tweets about what you take for breakfast start displaying in searches for your own name. By following these ten Twitter tips, you, your company or we can say your brand can build up more distinguished links in high places on the search engines.
1. PICK A GOOD ACCOUNT TO HANDLE
Be sure to choose an optimal handle that’s relevant to your brand or campaign and easy to recall. Your twitter handle (also known as your Username) then becomes subpart of your customized Twitter URL such as twitter.com/site or twitter.com/username. Doing this creates a static address for future twitter search indexing, which also helps serviceability for other cross-channel promotions. So choose with wisdom! The fun challenge: doing all this while keeping your name short and brief so it’s easily tweet-able.
2. SELECT AN ACCOUNT NAME WISELY
Optimize the Twitter account name that best describes your brand. Your name is what appears next to your twitter profile, which can differ than your handle/URL. You surely want an account name that promotes only yourself, your company or your brand. You should also consider which variation among many possibilities of your brand name has the most search frequency every month.
3. MAKE YOUR BIO COUNT
Optimize your Twitter page’s “Bio” line so it includes the most mission-critical, important phrases for your brand. Take full advantage of all 160 characters! (Yes, that is right: They will give you 20 more characters than a normal tweet.) Your bio is consistently indexed so its textual is what delivers your Twitter page with its core relevance.
4. SPREAD THE WORD
Think about ways to frame the link reputation of this new found social web address. For example, you can incorporate your Twitter URL into your website by placing a call to action on the site for your customers to follow you on Twitter. You could also incorporate your Twitter URL within your site’s Global Footer, which appears at the bottom of every page of your web site. Both of these possible options offer credibility to your site visitors and help you to drive your Twitter URL up in the search engines. You can also buy Twitter followers for a start.
5. REMEMBER YOUR URL
In the account settings, be sure to add your website’s URL or perhaps use it to boost your presence on another social platform, for example, yoursitename.com. This is the best way to drive traffic back to your destination of choice; although, truth be told, the link does not provide any off site reputation – a.k.a. Search engine optimization link juice – due to a “No follow” attribute that Twitter has in rank. (Sorry to Twitter spammers!)
6. SELECT THE FIRST CHARACTERS OF EACH TWEET CAREFULLY
The “lead-in” of each tweet appears to be essential for Search engine optimization as it will determine what appears in the tweet’s title tag when it displays up as a search result on Google. Nearly about 42 characters are factored into each tweet’s title tag, including your account name, as well as the first characters of each tweet. Keep in mind that your full tweet and all its characters are still being indexed by major search engines, though.
7. WRITE KEYWORD-RICH TWEETS IF POSSIBLE
Wherever possible, start your tweet with a focused keyword phrase to theme each message. Take advantage of any “active lingo” or buzz words as this will enable you to provide capital for on timely searches on those terms. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should fill your tweets with talking in words at the cost of providing value to your social media followers! Rather, think carefully about which word choices will best convey your message among many and also allow you to grip the real-time and long-term index relevance across the engines that continuously become wider and index tweets.
8. MIND YOUR RETWEETABILITY
Make sure your tweet’s character range make you allow for optimal “retweetability.” If you want a message to increase rapidly on Twitter, it’s ideal to keep it under 120 characters so your followers can easily add Re-tweet @YourTwitterHandle in front of the tweet. However, the exact number is not the same from everyone as it depends on the number of characters needed for someone to incorporate the phrase “RT @yourname” in their re-tweet.
9. PROVIDE SOME LINK LOVE
Insert back links to redirect users back to your textual content. Twitter has proven to be a exceptional traffic driver for bloggers and others using the space to share the links. If you do share links, use one of the so many URL shortened that shorten the URL available (TinyURL and Bit.ly are two common shortened). We recommend using the URL shortened Bit.ly, as it tracks click through for the essential links you share on the platform. Bit.ly even has the power to track links in combined. For example, if multiple Bit.ly URLs were created and shared by individual users, all leading back to the same URL, the service can track and report click- through for all of them in composite. Bit.ly also tracks clicks over time, so you can see at what time people are clicking your links most.
10. TWEET WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO READ
When providing Bit.ly links or any other URLs, make confident the redirection leads to pages which deliver a richer textual content experience. Twitter users are hungry for information and habitual to getting it “right now.” Send users directly to the detailed information instead of having them searching and confused around for it.
