Twitter Opens Its Content To Search Results

Here at Black Tie Digital Marketing, we like to keep you up to date on the goings on in the world of social media, especially since it is always changing! Search Engine Land reported that “as of recently, Twitter has opened up its content to search results, while still preventing bots from crawling its search results for users, videos and images. Tweet and hashtag search results show via the /search path; searches for Twitter users show via the /search/users path; and searches for photos and videos show via /search/(keyword)/grid.”

Twitter is allowing Google to crawl its tweet/hashtag search results, but still blocking the other two types. Twitter’s tweet/hashtag search results sometimes have lead to interesting content. For example, of a search for #emmys during last weekend’s Emmy Awards or for #Olympics during London’s 2012 Olympic games.

Our team will keep you up to date with what is going on with Twitter opening it’s content to search results. We this to create some noise because Google has been adamant over the years that it doesn’t want to show search results pages in its own search results. There’s a specific webmaster guideline that tells webmasters not to do what Twitter is doing. If you ever need help with any social media pages or web design in Melbourne, Florida give us a call!
