Has there been a change in the SERPs? You might find out about it first - from Twitter.
Twitter has been breaking all sorts of news lately, from weather events to earthquakes. Now, it's becoming a great source for finding out about possible search engine updates.
This morning, I read the following:
@alscillitani: anyone else noticing their rankings change several times over the last 24 hours in google. Up, down, back to up, ??? weird!!
@danlondon: @alscillitani I am seeing a few rankings bounce around. what is up?
This is a great way for Search Engine Marketers to put social media to use. It's easy to think that social media must be used for marketing and sales, but remember that tools like Twitter are great for networking and keeping up with the industry.
