Tweet Tweet – Why Twitter is Awesome!

I used to think that Twitter was just a giant world-wide chatroom that was never offline. Why bother getting a lot of followers on Twitter? There is no good reason! That’s what I used to think. I recently learned however that Twitter is extremely valuable.

Twitter is valuable because Google indexes everything that is said in Twitter. Let’s say you just opened a new business that sells furniture in your city. How in the world are you going to get the build a reputation equal to or greater than the veteran furniture stores? You will use Twitter.

When Google sees keywords used in Twitter it catalogues them and classifies them as important. Lets say you tweet “Your Company Name: Your City: Classic wood tables. http://www.yourcompanyname.com” Now, Google knows that your company and classic wood tables are related to each other. Then, when someone is looking for classic wood tables in Google your name [which is obviously relevant because of Twitter] will appear.

The more people tweet and re-tweet about you, the more Google sees you and the more relevant you appear. If you want to pop up first in a Google search you should use Twitter and include your name and include keywords relevant to you.

I hope this helps you understand the importance of Twitter.

Tomorrow or the next day I will talk about how often to tweet and what to tweet about.

Thanks for reading,

Joshua Lyons
