It is the biggest question whether a link posted/tweeted on Twitter passes link juice or not. Well Twitter has a hidden SEO importance but you cannot find it directly. Twitter adds “noFollow” attribute to all the links posted by its users.

With millions of users registering every year Twitter definitely can be source of organic traffic to your website. If you know how to use twitter?.

Search Engines give more importance to tweets by those users which are having large number of followers.

Profile: You need to choose your username carefully in order to rank with your profile. A crisp and relevant bio is a must to get noticed by both humans and search engines.

Tweeting: what you tweet is the most important of all. Tweet regularly but not in excess, it can annoy your followers as well. Google can take frequent tweet with same comment as spam.

Re-Tweet: Leverage the power of re-tweet button in twitter by posting some really good and useful content. Use widely popular terms in your tweets; try tweeting unique and interesting facts related to burning topics.

Use Hash Tags: Keywords preceded by a hash tag (#) help in getting a placement in twitter’s real time search. Instead of covering broader term you should better focus in more specific keywords for better ranking.

    Using Hash Tags are really useful and very less peoples are using it.

  8. Rajan,

    If Twitter adds a noFollow with all the links that are tweeted, half of the SEO-thing of Twitter dies there only. The only way one can use Twitter to promote one’s blog is to twee and re-tweet about one’s blog (with links) on twitter (but be clean, just don’t spam twitter). And, this would also work only if – you’ve got a considerable following.

    Hope you agree!

  9. I am fully Agree with You. Thanks for the Comment.
