Did you know that you could use Twitter to be found in the
search engines? That’s correct. Twitter is for more than
just talking to your friends about what you are eating for
dinner. Simply by answering the seemingly pointless
question of “Whatcha doin’?”, you can help your website be
found on the search engines.
Well, you might ask; how can I use Twitter to be found on
the search engines like Google? That’s a great question. I’m
so glad you asked that.
Many people wonder how they’re going to do that when they
sign up to join Twitter. Many people can’t believe that all
they have to do is type in the answer to a simple question
and they’ll be found on the search engines. In this article
you’ll discover ways you can use Twitter to help your
website be found in the search engines.
One way that you can use your social media profile to be
found is to populate your profile with the keywords you wish
to be found in.
For example, if you are a virtual assistant, you want people
to see the word virtual assistant in your profile. If you’re
a writer, be sure you put the word writer in your profile.
The more words related to what you do, the easier it will be
for the people searching for you to find you. Also, if you
have a particular niche that you serve, be certain to
include that niche in your profile as well. People looking
for that niche will use that keyword in their search. Also
be sure to include your website url in your profile.
Ideally this will be some type of opt in list so you can
collect people’s email address. This is important because
you still want to be able to connect with these people
should something bad happen to Twitter.
Additionally you want to make sure that the information you
are posting to your profile is information that is relevant
to your niche. In other words, if you write for small
businesses, be sure to post information related to small
business. This helps you to be seen as an authority figure
in your subject matter or area of expertise. Also, this
type of information gets
retweeted a lot. If at all possible, post relevant
resources and content on your website and then post the link
to that content on Twitter. That is a great way to get your
website noticed by the search engine.
Twitter is an outstanding tool to use to get your website
found in the search engines. Follow the steps mentioned
above and you’ll be well on your way to being a Twitter rock
star! Oh yeah, and you’ll be getting lots and lots of
search engine love, too.
