Ah – great question! How about right now? Okay, I know what you mean. Your question really is when is the best time to tweet to get the most eyes, the most retweets and (hopefully) the most conversions. You’re in luck because I don’t know either. Now we’re even. I do, however, know where some tools are to help you find “an” answer.
When it comes to SEO it’s all about having a bigger net connected to a funnel connected to a syringe. Get the biggest net possible! Here are a few places you can publish articles with links back to your site. This tactic gets both love and hate – sometimes from the same users! If you’ve read my writings or listened to my shows/podcasts you’ll know I’m a die-hard fan of data. My data says you do get a return on using this tactic and how well your article is written, what keywords it uses and how you invite people back to your money maker all play a role in that all important event: conversion!
I make a lot of connections through the hashtag #smallbiz on Twitter. It’s one of those things you either “get”, “don’t get” or “want to get but don’t”. If you’re in class 3 maybe these numbers will help you see the amount of engagement potential just from following this one hashtag.
Granted it has its share of spam as is the nature of the topic and the medium. Hopefully you won’t add to that and I won’t report you and block you. Just throwing that out there.
With an average use of around 1,500 times a day I think that will keep your automated keyword machine humming. Granted an easy 50% of those are spam even if just 10% are realistic opportunities for engagement you’ve still got a full plate.
Sometimes you just need a quick icon or a quick graphic. Some people still use clip art. Occasionally you just need a sound. With the RIAA and other organizations filing over 4.3 million complaints per month it’s not like you won’t be found. Publishers, enforcers, watchdogs, and attorneys are just waiting to pounce. In fact the “threat for cash” industry is huge bucks.

I have realized several times without ever writing it that most people who say they are SEO experts are actually keyword users. Now there is certainly nothing wrong with appropriate use of keywords and, in fact, it is and essential factor in SEO. The problem, if you want to call it so, is many SEO professionals end at keywords. They don’t know how to really break down how a domain, site, page, article, or sentence actually work with or against the algorithms which result in higher ranking on the search engines.
