Can I get SEO link-juice from status updates to Twitter using HootSuite?

Question by briflynn44: Can I get SEO link-juice from status updates to Twitter using HootSuite?
Last year, Twitter made status updates no-follow so you don’t get link juice from links you post in your status. However, I have heard that some applications that are used to post to Twitter have proven a way around this. Can I get a do-follow link when posting with HootSuite. If so, is the link as strong? Twitter is a page rank 9 site and I want to make sure it is being profitable to post links through an app.

Hi,

You can’t get ‘link juice’ direct from tweets as they are indeed no-follow. However you can add a link into your bio or profile which may in fact be do-follow.

One way to generate do follow links from your tweets is through third party sites that import and display your tweets, so although you won’t get page rank passed down from Twitter itself, you can get it passed from the third party site. Plus you get additional exposure and traffic from your tweets showing in more than one place to more than one audience.

A lot of the third party sites will also pull in your Twitter profile (and bio link) and give you link love.

Here is a list of a few of the sites, you may need to register with a few but usually they are free:

* LocalTweeps.com
* Tagwalk.com/site/domain.com
* TrustedReferral.com/profile/username
* Twibbon.com/username
* TwitDir.com
* m.TwitStat.com/index.php?userid=username
* TwitterStates.com
* Twitter.Threadless.com/user/username
* Twittangle.com/username
* Twitr.org/user/username
* Crowdeye.com
* Klout.com
* Plentyoftweeps.com
* Sency.com
* Twaitter.com
* Taweet.com
* Tweetworth.com
* Twiscounter.com
* TwitRak.com
* TwitReferral.com

Hope this helps…
