    Hello All,
    I have a question. I have posted my site URLs in twitter and facebook in front of my friends. Are these direct links considered as back links? If not could you please tell me how to get back links from twitter and facebook. I use this two sites but do not know how to get back links.
    Regards

    one thing i do not understand when back links are so easily available( i mean purchasing different offer of several companies) then why search engines like Google pay so much attention in back links. Why content is neglected in comparison to back links? Any idea from you experts.

    You can purchase back links, but can you purchase valuable back links. I mean I could buy 500 links from general run of the mill sites, but getting a link on a newspaper site or other authority site takes a great deal of effort......

    So, quality links are the most important and I believe Hundreds of low quality links, might make up One high quality link!!!!!

    Twitter/Facebook links are nofollow but they can be good for driving traffic to your site. It's not always all about getting backlinks.

    most say they are not backlinks though you may receive traffic from these posted links....they are no follow...but for me, whether it is no follow or do follow, they are still backlinks...

    Google will crawl your site in an instant with links. It's best to sign up with a new Twitter acct under your own brand and set your profile URL to your website. Then start following a few people, tweet a bit, and Google will quickly find your profile. From here the bots will probably see you have a URL and, naturally, will become curious :)

    Of course it's backlinks. But keep in mind how google rates those links:

    Twitter backlinks are no follow but they will hep you to bring traffic on your site. No Idea about FB links but they are also no follow for sure, don't know if they bring traffic or not.

    Profile links are the only valuable link from twitter for SEO purpose. But for other purposes, links from twitter are quite useful.

    Twitter backlinks aren't actually considered nofollow because Google reads them directly from a Twitter data feed, not from the web page containing the tweet. These are also weighted based on a whole different set of criteria too.
