    What's your opinion on having the url ur working on tweeted out to followers? Does that have a positive effect on seo?

    I know that I can do a retweet blast across my twitter accounts and get a new post indexed very fast. As far as ranking, I'm not sure of the actual effect. I've never sat down and done a case study of just using Twitter.

    There was a thread about twitter impact on SEO somewhere. Try to search for "twitter seo case study"

    yes definitely,
    read a post of someone claiming really surprising results from just retweets.. It was in context for a service that is selling retweets, but still....

    I have personally tested twitter in terms of organic SEO.

    I have been able to get sites indexed puerly by tweeting....

    This obviously doesnt proove what value google give to twitter, and you have to remember that twitter links are NO-FOLLOW. However, I do think tweeting has a positive impact on SEO, and with so many tools out there to automate tasks, it is something which you should do to every site you are serious about.

    Indexing, it works great. Ranking, it doesn't do a damn thing. FB likes can help though.
