Last week both Google and Microsoft confirmed that they do in fact take in to consideration social media links (links within Facebook and Twitter) in their ranking algorithms.
I thought it would be interesting to try a little albeit slightly selfish experiment to see if I can gather some data to support what both search engines have confirmed. This is an informal experiment that will both help start to answer the questions these changes have brought and at the same time promote my wonderful wife’s website.
Below is a pre-crafted tweet with Keywords built in to the structure of the tweet, simply click the share button below to participate in the experiment.
I will be tracking the results with topsy.com and will publish a findings post once the experiment has concluded and I have had time to correlate the date.
I need your help!
If tweeting or linking is not your thing what are you doing reading an SEO blog?
Full Disclosure / Disclaimer – Participating in this experiment will promote a site that is owned by my wife, I do not want to hear from people that I was performing a selfish experiment. Though I fully believe the results will be useful to all SEO’s out there.
