    I know Google records everything related to your site as far as Re-Tweets and shit like that goes, but do they follow Twitter account follow/unfollow frequencies? So say you had a Twitter account that was associated to your website and you had a bunch of followers would this affect anything whatsoever?

    I have been testing this every couple of months and so far in my testing Google hasn't been using twitter as a SERP factor. I think they will soon though.

    http://www.branded3.com/tweets-vs-rankings - check this out buddy! I think Google knows literally anything and everything that touches the Internet! Just use the information to monetize when they can and also allow the Googler(s) to use/see only the information they can expose legally if that makes sens!

    I think Google wants to know everything about everybody who uses the internet, so I think they do care. Google phones, Google tablets, Google Tv, Google Hi speed internet, Google is everywhere, they are our new companions.

    No, Google doesn't have access to Twitter's data. The only thing Google has access to is what is publicly visible.

    Bhopkins, Google won't start following Twitter in regards to SERP as they had a dispute about a year ago. Since then they have had a very icy relationship and Google are moving away from Twitter potentially affecting SERP, Google+ is the way forward in regards to SEO
