Everything You Need to Know About SEO, You Can Learn on Twitter (Part 1)

Filed in SEO by Matt McGee on October 17, 2014 4 Comments

Alright peeps, little did you know, but I’ve been faving and bookmarking your SEO tweets for like the past two years or so. Maybe more. (I’ve also been faving and bookmarking your social media marketing tweets, and those’ll show up in a future article.)

The thing I’ve learned most from this exercise? You can learn a lot about SEO by following the right people on Twitter.

Below are 21 great SEO lessons from some smart and excellent Twitter users. If you want more of their wisdom, start following them. Or just wait until I compile part two … but that might be a while, so just follow these smart folks.

(By the way, one rule I had when putting this together: No tweets with conference hashtags. Why? Because a) those tweets are likely the words of someone speaking, not the person doing the tweeting, and b) except for #SMX, I tend to mute all conference hashtags to avoid too much clutter and repetition in my stream.)

So if you’re ready, here are 21 Great Tweets About SEO!

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for including me here. I just feel like I need to say this, even though it should be obvious.

    I know a lot more about SEO than fits into a single maximum-lengthed 140 character tweet, or even the blog that I’ve been posting to regularly, about SEO for the past 9+ years. I’m way over 10.000 hours of writing about SEO, and I’ve probably done more actual SEO in the past 17 years than that, by a lot.

    I do tweet about SEO, as do many other people, but I think there may be a lot more to SEO than you might learn on Twitter. 🙂

  2. Thanks Matt! I am honored to be included in such great company 🙂

    Cool post. I’ll just say that in order to actually learn from Twitter – you have to know where to look. My timeline is just too jumbled with my random follows to properly learn anything from Twitter. Probably best to separate into lists.
