A few days back we wrote about how Twitter had changed title tags of their site to better optimize their pages in the search engines (Google particularly).
Today I was looking at Alexa (which tracks how different websites are going in terms of traffic) and saw this with regards to Twitter Traffic:
It’s a big spike in traffic that saw Twitter rise in Alexa’s rankings from in the 200’s to somewhere around #30 virtually over night.
Things have settled down again in the day or two since but traffic does still seem to be higher.
I’m sure there are a variety of possible explanations for this rise in traffic – but it does seem to coincide with the week that Twitter changed its title tags. Are there any SEO types out there with any insight?
