    Hey guys,
    I'm new on Twitter and I've discovered that just few of my posts appears on #TAG
    I know that on TUMBLR to appear on TAG search you need to have old accounts with activity.

    And how it works on Twitter? Why not all posts appears there?
    Is it relaited with account old? Or with activity? If yes then what acitivity? Following? Liking? Tweeting?

    Sure I can do my researches by myself and figure out how it works, but all we know that time = money and maybe if you know the answer for this you can help me to save my time of trying to understand what I need to do to appear on #tags search all the time.

    Thanks for any ideas and help!

    It's related to your account quality and the tweet itself activity.

    Results are TOP results as mentioned on the search page. If you want to see every post with this # you have to actually click on "view all".
    Now it terms of what make a tweet appear in the "TOP" results, there is different factors : Age of account, followers, follower ratio, verified, number of retweet, number of comments, number of favorites

    what do you mean exactly? all the tweets are ghosted of particular accs or only a few, while others can be found? if it's the former, i met with that issue long time ago, you can be excluded from the twitter search for spamming too much, now that's exactly what you need to figure out for yourself, because i can't really have any exact numbers for what is "too much" :) and i believe once you were excluded there's no way back with that particular acc

    Yeap I understand all this but lets say :

    I have 100 accounts with all of them I post 100 different links lets say with similar tags.
    And only 20% of the links gets traffic like they gets blast of clicks, and other links are at 0 and it looks like that not appeared anywhere and nobody seen them.
    And I use not over spammed accounts - its fresh but aged ~2years old accounts without any activity, so they cant be ghosted for spamming.

    So my main problem that I don't understand why some of these accounts "appears" in #TAG and starts to get traffic just in a first minutes, and other ones are posted too similar like others but are invisible for users.

    Welcome to the world of twitter. I sometimes just don't understand why stuff like this happens. Wait for 8-10 hours and try again to see if the same thing happens.

    it can be that those accs - aged or not- are no good to begin with, maybe they were created from ips which got blacklisted since then, but twitter didn't ban the accs, only ghosting them from the search, which is a lot more annoying :)
    maybe it's the proxies you're using or something entirely else, hard to tell

    There are also some other contributing factors I've noticed, I've checked top tweets for a particular hashtag from two separate accounts and they're different, my guess is that top tweets are slightly tailored to the individual account, basing on demographic, region, etc. To test this I've set an account to a European country and boosted a tweet, showed up in top tweets for the hashtag used, but only on accounts outside the US.

    Aside from that, as another user said above, the main factors are engagement (favorites, retweets, replies) and overall account quality.
