It seems Google is using Twitter to find out what topics are hot enough to trigger the “Query Deserves Freshness” algorithm (that’s the algorithm that brings the newest pages to the top of the search results).
That made me stop and think. If Google is watching Twitter, shouldn’t I be watching Twitter too? What makes Twitter so valuable, anyway?
It all boils down to knowing what people are talking about and making the most of it. One of many tools to help you do this is Trendistic. Enter a couple of keywords about your practice or things that affect your practice, and see what has come up over the past 24 hours, 7 days, or whatever period takes your fancy. Also, take a look down the right hand column to see the most popular topics under discussion on Twitter right now.
Another tool, specifically useful for lawyers: LegalBirds. Use this Twitter directory of legal professionals to find competitors/colleagues and see if they are tweeting about a hot topic you should know about.
You can also utilize Twitter’s own Trending list. This list is based on location, not keyword, but it’s worth checking to see if you can relate any of the current hot topics to your area of expertise. How to use it:
In both cases, post near the peak of the topic’s popularity.
How does this information help you?
Tracking hot topics on Twitter can give your website a freshness advantage that will result in higher ranking and thus more traffic around popular topics. By following Twitter, you could well become a leader.
