Dennis shared our post on 11/24 and saw tremendous twitter engagement. We all know from various industry sources that twitter engagement is highly correlated with SEO success – and we’re proud to report that we just confirmed it in our study. You see, Dennis tweeted our post 2 days before thanksgiving, and just 3 days later on Friday his retail site had their highest SEO traffic and sales of the year!
This test conclusively proves that tweeting WTFSEO content is highly correlated with increased twitter engagement, and increased twitter engagement as we all know is highly correlated to SEO success.
