20+ SEO Pro's You Should Follow on Twitter

Thanks for including me +SEMrush
 
20+ SEO Experts That You Should Follow on Twitter
If you're an SEO marketer and an active Twitter user, you are probably following:
+Rand Fishkin (@randfish), +Eric Enge (@stonetemple), +David Amerland (@davidamerland), +Barry Schwartz (@rustybrick), +Neil Patel (@neilpatel) and other SEO masterminds. 

These guys are newsmakers and you follow them to track the latest trends and catch up on the news. We follow them, join their conversations and share their content; but, we also connect with SEO experts that live in a less crowded "neighbourhood" of mentions, retweets and favs. 

Find a list of people we like to converse with and who are as SEO-savvy as the big names we've mentioned above! 
If you're not following them, we suggest that you change that now!

+Annalisa Hilliard What really gets me is that +SEMrush go the extra mile in making people feel validated, listened to and part of a huge community, which we are of course, but they show it :) "Knowing" and "showing" are two very different things ;)

YouTube, Google+ (yes, you read that right) & Linked-In Drive The Most Engaged "Post-Click" Referrals (H/T: +Simply Measured)

For those thinking that Google+ is dying, think again! Just behind YouTube, it provides the 2nd most engagement of all social platforms.

6 note-worthy findings from the +Shareaholic study:

YouTube is the undisputed champion
Google+ & Linked-In bring in some of the best visitors
A referral from Twitter is as good as a referral from Facebook
Pinterest is not the social media golden child
Reddit users are most fickle
StumbleUpon drives the least engaged referrals
We spend a ton of time using social media. But what is our behavior post-click, when we actually interact with a link one of our friends shared socially?

We stayed at the Baytree Hotel & Bed and Breakfast in Torquay a short while ago. Only a short walk from the sea and harbour, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner gave helpful tips for sightseeing the local attractions incl Brixham and Paignton, plus the local theatre and nightlife. Family room was spacious, food was superb plus fast Wifi access :) If you're looking to stay in Torbay or the English Riviera, the Baytree Hotel is a must - highly recommended!

In very short notice, The White Box Cake Company (Hitchin, Hertfordshire) made a wonderful Nintendo DS birthday cake for our eldest boys 9th birthday. The attention to detail, colour and style was fantastic. And the taste was sensational... so much so that, by the evening, the cake had been fully eaten, with a few requests for seconds. We cannot recommend The White Box Cake Company highly enough. For service, creativity, cost and yummy taste, there's simply no better birthday cake, celebration cake or wedding cake company in Hitchin - well done and keep it up!

We called out Advanced Heating & Plumbing (Watford) to investigate our gas boiler that had not been working properly. We were concerned that our family would not have adequate central heating throughout the cold winter months. A Corgi / Gas-Safe engineer visited (on time, uniformed and with ID) and thankfully resolved the problem with minimum fuss and disruption. Another local emergency plumber had told us that we needed a new boiler installation, but we didn't think this was the case. Thanks to the Advanced Heating & Plumbing engineer's honesty, hard work and professional approach, we now have a fully working boiler. We've also booked them in for a power flush to alleviate any further sludge problems. Highly recommended and very helpful :)

Xi Software (Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire) provide IT Systems Management solutions, open source Linux / UNIX software applications and support services. We've worked with them closely for a number of months now and we're highly impressed to say the least. Their IT knowledge, expertise and guidance is second to none and as a leader in the field of print management and batch job scheduling, they are real innovators. Having formed in 1986, they've stayed the test of time and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
