Recently, Google and Bing were interviewed concerning social signals. The result of the interview confirmed that retweet by Twitter users with authority can significantly enhance your organic ranking.

Here, we will discuss tips that can make Twitter authorities to recognize your tweets. You would also get to know how you can become an authority on Twitter platform.

Getting authoritative tweeters to notice your tweets
The authoritative people you should “follow” are those relevant to your niche or industry. Some people are not likely to “follow” back; but, when you choose those who have the same interests as you, the chances of them following back is high. Thus, ensure that your tweets are related to your industry.

When authoritative people in your industry tweet links, endeavor to retweet such links – they are likely to reciprocate afterwards by retweeting your tweet, and may even end up following you. Now, remember that you must not go overboard when retweeting!

Don’t forget to also include Twitter and other social media platforms share widgets of your choice at the foot of every informative article and blog posts. This is a great way to generate several backlinks – it pays to have many people share your links, especially when they’re personalities with authority.

Incorporate hash-tags(#) when you post links and tips. But, you must know the hash-tag that is popular at each point in time. Also, get to know if such popular tag is relevant to your industry, then consider related tweet that you can use such hash-tag with.

Having substantial number of followers is a plus. You can actually get to increase your Twitter followers – here are ways to win followers that would stick by you for a while:

  • Your posts should be relevant and informative. Recommend apps, software and other useful tools, share useful tips as well. Ensure that you keep your tweets brief since there’s character limit set. Don’t use up your character limits so that those who want to retweet your tweets can do so.
