So yes, twitter can be a great place to get traffic and twitter is a link building tool. Dan shows us just where to place links for optimal Click Through Rate (CTR). So the best link placement in twitter per this data is about the 25% mark, or about 20 to 30 characters in. Hmmm, that would be right about where a mention would end. ( @DanZarrella Check http://www.this.com out! ) Which actually leads me to believe that the social side of social media is actually pushing the effectiveness of a link. No statement on if mentions effected the CTR.
And if you want to know just how successful your twitter links are at driving traffic then try using a link shortner: Bit.ly, Goo.gl, Tiny.cc
But is there a correlation with link placement in a tweet and SEO? My guess is “No”.
