Its been my experience that Twitter has a very powerful SEO value if used correctly, I had to take the time to figure it out but once I took the time to learn, its returned some favorable SEO results. I learned that you have to earn the right to market successfully on Twitter, when I was a Twitter newbie I spammed without cease and was left wondering why I got no results. Then I began reading what people were saying and the light bulb came on over my head.

I slowly began Tweeting useful content and links that was helpful to people and my results changed almost immediately, the technique worked in all of my marketing endeavors, instead of going into a forum or social media site and acting like a Bull in a China shop I learned some finesse'. Its paid off. Twitter is a great marketing tool if used to its best potential.

Tweeting about your keywords and their descriptions should be good for your business. That's if you have the right kind of followers.

I have been using twitter for years. I tend to use it in many different ways.

I have accounts with thousands and thousands of followers. I use them as a mixed rss stream for all my sites. I never talk on them ever. I get insane amounts of traffic that way. In fact I have one site I think that averages over 1000 hits a week from my twitter streams.

Then I have other twitter accounts I am active on. I talk to people frequently. I follow relatively few people and have lots of followers. I log in each of them a few times a week and I actively chat with people and brand myself.

I find blackhat methods do work. I find white hat methods equally work. So i say do both :)

Hi Irene, I am not sure what you will find if you research these topics so I thought I'd give you a few mini definitions.

Blackhat marketing is the practice of breaking rules to obtain website traffic. Its not illegal but often times immoral and frowned upon. Obvious forms of blackhat marketing are generally bad. They include things such blog comment spam and mass guestbook post. The idea behind such methods is you rank better in google the more places that link to your site. So people do anything to get links out their.

In the sense I used it above however its not so obvious. In this sense I am referring to breaking rules of twitter. Most people consider the first type of account I talked about "twitter spam" although I call it my "twitter stream".

Whitehat marketing is the practice of doing everything by the book. Most people involved in social marketing use these practices. As you will see and have read many places, the best way to use twitter is through real interaction, not just posting links and never talking. This is considered whitehat because you are using twitter as it was intended... to socialize.

Sorry for the long offtopic post I just wanted to clear that up a bit for you (Irene) and anyone else who may find this down the road :)

Most of my clients get 6 keywords to help them market their product.
I help them to pick the right ones.
It usually gets them on their way.

do you really think anyone on Twitter is reading the others tweets?
my experience with most twitter active accounts is they are just a one big spam stream without any real sense...

I was wondering about who is actually reading that stuff. My twitter stream with about 1500 followers actually moves too fast for me.
I can't really read and digest what is coming through for any length of time.
How about everyone else. Can you read and digest whats coming through on your twitter feed?
