Your Twitter post is good and brings up some valid points, glad I found your post! I believe that social media is going to be the future home for any and all advertising and marketing. With Google's real-time search and other search engines catching on quickly you will see many SEO Companies becoming Twitter SEO Companies very soon! I wrote a post that you may be interested to read about Twitter SEOI am an avid Twitter user and focus on building the value that I add to the rest of my social network, I help to promote any and everyone that asks me for help (as long as they are not loco in la cabessa!). I believe that optimizing your profiles is very important, just as optimizing your website is, but the most important part of any SEO efforts is having quality content. The same goes for Twitter, you need quality content and updates for people to read and link to. If you tweet about the right subjects you will notice more and more incoming links to your twitter profile when your tweets start being republished on other people's blogs (provides some temporary page rank). Also you can do your own personal "Social Media Press Release" and some good old fashioned article directory link building with your Twitter profile.Social media is the first step to an "open-source" media and news. My twitter username is @gohewitt for anyone looking to follow. I am excited to see what comes of all of this and feel that we still don't have a clue what being "Connected" really means just yet!
@Zoe: I would discourage you from significantly altering the content of your Twitter updates just to optimize for search engines. Just keep it in mind when you are tweeting. Relevant content that is useful to your followers takes priority, but if you can change it up slightly to make your updates search engine friendly, great!
An informative article with valuable information, I'm glad you shared your SEO tips on optimising your business Facebook and Twitter profiles for search. I think most people wouldn't have thought about this whilst establishing a social media presence and strategy. My key take away tip is how important the first 40 characters are in a tweet, as these are the keywords which are added to the search engine listing. I'll try to craft my tweets a little more carefully now to be more search engine friendly. Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge.
@Memo: That's awesome feedback. It's true that small tweaks make big differences. If you don't mind sharing, what changes did you make?
I've done a few experiments with combining/linking LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, and it definitely affects the ranking and pretty quickly.
@Chris Barton: Absolutely. Remember that a social media profile page is just like any other page. Good content (to help the search engines understand what the page is about) and good links is what will get you ranked for relevant keywords. Therefore, the same advice applied to YouTube, LinkedIn, etc.
