Branded 3 has mentioned in its blog about Study Proves tweets do affect ranking. That they started experiment on cool Twitter petition site; Twitition.com.
Twitition is a petition website where you can start petition and ask people to sign on petition. When someone signs a Twitition a tweet is sent from their account.
According to Study Results are fascinating for twittions which has proper title and signature.
Branded 3 Mentioned in blog about what they did “We collected our data from Twitition on 28th February 2012, which included the Twitition short URL; the Twitition’s name and title; the Twitition’s start date; and the Twitition’s number of signatures (tweets).”
When they checked ranking of that petition by taking the first four words from the new Twitition title, and checking the rank for Twitition.com from that one to four word phrase in Google. They found following
|No of Tweets||Avg Google Position|
According to this table it says there isn’t significant boost until you reach to 500 tweets. Over 500 tweet for particular URL slight boost on ranking happened. And when it crosses over 7500 tweets for url ranking secured 5th position in Google.
