Yesterday I touched on the Twitter rankings on the first page of Google for competitive phrases. Today I was tweeting while listening to an SEOmoz webinar and noticed that a friend of mine ranked on page one for “seo” via the Twitter feeds. My tweet about this then ranked me and my tweet about this irony then ranked. it appears that it’s easy to now rank on page one which is precisely why this “feature” will soon die.
I had assumed that for this to work well you needed a strong twitter account but I’ve avoided it until recently so only have about 100 followers. Hardly a strong account thought I’d trying to build those number by providing periodic updates and good info (you can follow me at @beanstalkseo should you feel so inclined).
