5 Ways to Be BANNED From Twitter Search Results
Don't Get BANNED from Twitter Search Results
There’s no doubt that we are waist deep in the social media/networking era, if that much. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn amongst others have crept into our lives to rule our daily routine and at first they were mainly personal, but as their popularity gain exponentially, businesses jumped onboard as well.
Due to the influx in users, some social sites have decided to take certain steps to eradicate fake profiles that are typically bot operated and spam anyone who dares to follow. One of those sites is Twitter, which host about 140 million daily users that over the course of one week can rattle of, oh about a billion or something Tweets... Yeah, I said a billion tweets in one week. Therefore it is easy to see and understand why Twitter has decided to eliminate bot run pages, however, if you are one of the 140 million daily users be sure to be careful that you don’t over do it or you could be blocked from appearing on the Twitter’s Search results.
Who cares you ask? Well, you should because if you don’t appear on search results on Twitter, consider the number of people and potential opportunities for leads or growth that are being withheld.
Here are some simple tips to ensure that you continue to appear on the Twitter's search results page.
We heard you already! Be honest there is nothing more annoying than having someone continuously posting the same link/tweet over and over again, it’s like hear the same joke, we get it. To help elevate the problem, Twitter has taken a page out of Google’s book, which punishes for duplicate content, and now does the same to users who spam your feed hoping for visibility.
Don’t be aggressive. No one likes a person who’s overly aggressive, well neither does Twitter. A smart way to not get blocked from the results page is to gradually grow the number of people you follow and to keep a rather reasonable ratio between followers and followings.
Everything in Moderation. Abusing hashtags or trending topics is a stellar way to get blacklisted, although due to the increasing popularity of Twitter Chats, which utilize a specific hashtag to help keep track of a conversation those who are flagged for this, generally are gratuitous with their usage.
Personalization Tweet/Replies. Automated tweets and replies will definitely put you on the fast track to be blocked. Rather than automating your replies, consider taking the 15 seconds or so to respond with something a bit more personal, could make the difference in the end.
Individualize. Posting the same or similar message across different accounts is a surefire way to booted from appearing. The sacrifice and time to successfully operate various accounts is understandable, however, it is vital that you take the necessary steps to individualize the content per each account.
