Google and Bing have confirmed that links from Twitter are being used as factors in their search rankings. But how are social signals being used and what can you do to make this work to improve your rankings?

Well put Alastair. I think that social mentions will only get more important with time.

Thanks Jackie and Yoni.

I was just thinking about it there and I can probably make it even more simple. People tweeting links to your site is good for you. The more important those people are on Twitter the better it will be. And, this will only get more important as time goes by.

There's a bit more than that in the post but that's what it comes down to.

I have been seeing quite a lot of information around the traps lately on this. Although I do struggle to understand some of the tech talk, I probably know just enough to be dangerous. Impact will be interesting especially with google working to include real time tweets in search and such.

Thanks for putting together information in plain english for tech-so-nots to understand.

Jackie

Amen,

I too get lost in the techno aspects but you have a very nice way of making difficult concepts (for techno idiots like me) easy to understand.
