Everything is moving to digital, does that mean that your location isn’t valuable? New research shows that your physical location could be your most …

This post is in part a con. While I'm definitely interested in offering advice and not a sales pitch to any DrivingSales member who has SEO or Internet Marketing questions, I have an ulterior motive.

If you aren't on Twitter, you might be missing out. If you haven't heard of Twitter, you need to watch more news, read more newspapers, and spend more time online.

Twitter is a microblogging and lifestreaming platform that has taken the Internet and the rest of the world by storm. It has been credited with helping Obama win the election, for helping Britney Spears improve her faltering reputation, and for giving Skittles a new direction in their marketing campaign.

Still not convinced? Do a search on Google for "Twitter". Hit the "News" button up at the top. Check out some of the headlines and the dates on these stories. You'll notice immediately that Twitter is hot and it's on the rise.

How is Twitter going to be used in business? How can it help car dealers, manufacturers, and vendors? These are topics for a future post as well as for my upcoming Twitter Ustream.TV show, but for now, I'll just entice you with some quality, sales-free SEO advice.  All you have to do is tweet me.

If you have a Twitter account, you probably know what to do.  Add me: JD Rucker on Twitter, and send me an @ reply. Direct Messages get mixed in with the other 50 I get a day, so @ replies are the best way to get my attention.

If you don't have a Twitter account, here is the basics to get started:

  1. Sign up at Twitter.
  2. Pick your User Name carefully, preferably your full name or first initial, last name.
  3. Add your photo and some biographical information.
  4. Add me: JD Rucker on Twitter by pressing the "Follow" button.
  5. In your Twitter bar, past the following:

@0boy - I am from http://drivingsales.com and I have a question for you.

I will contact you through DrivingSales to discuss your SEO or marketing question.  It may sound confusing, but it should take a total of 5 minutes. Twitter limits interactions to 140 characters or less (which is its strength, but I'll explain that in future posts) so sending your questions themselves through Twitter might not be the best way for us to interact. With that said, you may wonder why I would want you to go through the whole process of joining Twitter. Why wouldn't I just post my email or phone number and tell you to contact me that way?

You'll understand soon enough. Join Twitter and my SEO brain is yours for the picking.
