    Gist is that after a round of high caliber re-tweets they are now ranking for a keyword they did not use to rank for.

    In other words, the round of re-tweets permanently affected their ranking for a keyword that they never ranked for before.

    This article seems to say that the reason this works is the Google authority of the re-tweets.

    I am curious, for all you Twitsluts out there (I say with with respect, not malice) does this only work with authority retweets, or can you overwhelm it with quantity and do the same thing?

    If you can do it with multiple accounts ( I have only my own) can you do it over and over for more and more keywords?

    correlation != causation

    More Retweets -> More attention -> More Backlinks from Blogs & Twitter Scraper sites

    Well DUUHH.

    The question was how much influence is lost if those re-tweets are from non authority (in Google's eyes) Tweeters? And can you make up the lag in volume, or stack them?

    But thanks for playing.

    Great question. There was a post where a guy said that after he was hit by the first Penguin update he was buy tweets and retweets and it brought him back up. Though he did say it was a temporary rise in PR for KWs you would have to continue buying the service or be doing it yourself. But google would prob catch on to that also.
    I know you made the post a while back but have you found any success in this? do you know of a good place to buy twitter services.

    You can overwhelm it with quantity.

    My personal strategy:

    I have over 1000 accounts, all with real followers in them... ranging from 50 to 50,000.

    I then give the keyword tweet 500-700 RT's
