Twitter Says No To Third Party Advertisers

May 25  |  Social Networks  |   Ryan Clark

Well you all remember pay for blog posts I’m sure….here’s the start of another search marketing industry that is about to go underground Twitter recently said that there will be no more inserting third party ads via the Twitter API. Companies like Sponsored tweets may take a little hit, but for now I think they’re still going to bank for a while. This is nothing new of course. Where there is a crowd, there is a marketer. I think in the right context, with the right set of followers this shouldn’t be a problem as long as the shoe fits. Obviously the debate is heating up on Mashable, so check it out to voice your opinion, especially if you’re a developer.


Social Whale App

May 18  |  Twitter Marketing  |   Ryan Clark

I just watched this video presentation about Social Whale for your mobile phone. This app was started in 2009 by a few people in Greece, and has been in alpha testing stages to this day it seems. Twitter has created so many unique ways of communicating that the people at Social Whale decided to put something together. Watch this video to see what I mean.

Our idea is simple at its base. We create a clone of twitter’s API and then extend it, so that it has more features. This way twitter can continue being as simple as it is now, but advanced users can use our implementation in order to have the features we offer. Developers can easily update their applications to work with our extended API using the same requests in our domain (instead of twitter’s) and get the same data, enriched with the extra information that we provide. This way we actually have created an extension of twitter itself.

Google Follows Twitter Links?

May 15  |  Link Building  |   Ryan Clark

Well it is not secret that Google doesn’t always pay attention to the nofollow code. Don’t believe me? That’s fine I don’t really care. There’s nothing wrong with a nofollow link in the first place, at least that’s what I think. You have to have them, they’re natural and they make your link profile look good, so what’s going on with Twitter here? Well I’ve done my own testing, so should you, but some folks at Webmaster World got a discussion going on about Twitter links. Seems a brand new site was indexed and ranked pretty quickly from just a Tweet…let me know what you think.

Twitter Adds Embeddable Tweets

May 5  |  Link Building  |   Ryan Clark

So the news has hit the web that Twitter is now allowing you to embed a tweet via Twitter…so what does this mean for link building? Well as of right now the Blackbird tool wasn’t working, most likely due to overuse so my testing is limited at this time. I’m hoping to get your folks commenting about this, so anyone who has tested out this feature let me know. You can see from the Mashable article that the link is nofollowed in the embed, but who knows how this will be affected on other sites, or if it will remain always nofollow. Regardless it is a link, and it will open the world up to a whole whack of link building opportunities…exciting times folks!

Conan + Twitter Office = Linkbait Wet Dream

April 23  |  Link Building  |   Ryan Clark

I just read about how Conan O Brian dropped in on the Twitter HQ’s in San Francisco earlier this morning, and it got me thinking. Can you imagine if you had access to this kind of viral marketing? I’m going to be watching closely what impact this has on not only Mashable, but Twitter link wise. I’m really interested to see how many links this will net them in a 24-48 hour period, what do you folks think? I would be a happy man to not have to worry about link building with this kind of networking going on, so is this making any of you think?

I imagine if you’re in the local search market, even a little interview with a local celebrity would go a long way in your linking efforts. This is the type of marketing I like to see happen for a few reasons. This isn’t costing them any money, your users do the link building for you and you’ll even enjoy some branding in the process. Last but not least, you’re also doing something your competitors most likely cannot copy. That marketing, and those links will be a wicked asset to your online ranking efforts and keep the competitor’s in your dust.

Auto Find & Follow People On Twitter

February 20  |  Twitter Marketing  |   Ryan Clark

I just found out about Twollow through some tweets on Twitter…now let’s never say that sentence again. I know a lot of you have no need for Twitter, but for some of us it can be one hell of a business tool. I’ve been somewhat growing my Twitter account but I just don’t seem to be moving fast enough. Some of you can hugely benefit from the networking aspect but may not have the time, so here’s something to help you folks out. Keep in mind I was not paid, or will be paid, for this post so it’s up to you for some feedback.

I’m not one who wants to waste much time on there so any help is good. If you’re trying to launch successful linkbait/viral campaigns, then this tool is also right up your alley. Once you have a decent Twitter following you’ll be surprised how much easier it is to snag links. A lot of sites, apps and widgets now a days are arching and indexing retweet’d content. So the more of an influence your account is, the more random links you’re going to pick up over time.

Twitter Showing In Google Search Results

January 10  |  News  |   Ryan Clark

I just read on the AIM Clear Blog about Twitter showing up in Google search results and although I socially did my sharing of his article, I’ll let you folks know in case you missed it. You can see by the picture I just took what to expect and I’d start thinking how you can use this to your marketing advantage. They’re showing up at the top now and if that becomes mainstream, I’d want to have a game plan in mind.
