Twitter on Google

Danny Sullivan from Search Engine Land recently asked Google and Bing some questions on how they use social data from Twitter and Facebook. In particular, he wanted to know how that data influenced regular web search results. As we all know being found on the first page of Google in search results can drive a lot of traffic to your blog and website and research shows that nearly 90% of all clicks on links on Google come from being on the first page of Google.

Social media is growing up fast. No longer a niche plaything of the digerati, social media is firmly entrenched as a societal game changer of historical importance. For many, social media and social networking are so ubiquitous and pervasive that we presume we have it figured out, that we have a finger firmly on the pulse. But we don’t. Data about how social media really works, who uses it and how, continues to surprise.

Like Facebook and Google before it, Twitter has thousands of marketers chomping at the bit to find a ad strategy.

They are smart to eschew old models and launch programs that use the unique power of Twitter. Early testers tell me the “Promoted Tweets” are exceeding expectations and many of us are anxiously awaiting a user model where we can experiment with small budgets ourselves.

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) — Twitter Inc. will probably more than triple its advertising revenue to $150 million this year as more companies use it to spread marketing messages, according to Internet researcher EMarketer Inc.

Ad sales for Twitter, which introduced its advertising program in April, may reach $250 million in 2012, said Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst at EMarketer, which today released its first multiyear research report on the blogging site. San Francisco-based Twitter has lured advertisers such as Nissan Motor Co., Hewlett-Packard Co. and Starbucks Corp.

Twitter, which has more than 175 million registered users globally, is competing for advertising dollars with larger companies such as Google Inc. and social-networking rival Facebook Inc.

A December Pew Research Center report said only 8 percent of U.S. Web surfers use Twitter, she noted.

If you are bragging about your compulsive behavior, I think it’s a little beyond a desire to use social networks.

Get some help.

I’m going to have to reconsider the international market for “Twitter Revolution: How Social Media and Mobile Marketing is Changing the Way We Do Business & Market Online”

When we wrote the book, we knew there would Twitter would grow, but always surprised to see attention in other languages.
