“Advanced” Twitter Search Operators

Quick post alert!

Just came across an interesting page on Twitter that shows how you can do searches specialist searches.  If you are using Twitter to link build then you are probably aware of these already, if not get too it!

Check them out below:

  • SEO Blog –> Finds tweets that contains both “SEO” and “Blog” unsurprisingly this is a default operator
  • “SEO Blog” –> Find exact phrase tweets
  • SEO OR Blog –> Finds tweets that contain either “SEO” or “Blog” (or both!)
  • SEO -Blog –> Finds tweets that contain “SEO” but not “Blog”
  • #SEOBlog –> Finds tweets containing the hashtag #SEOBlog
  • from:011100110110010 –> Find tweets that come via “011100110110010″
  • to:011100110110010 –> Find tweets that are sent to “011100110110010″
  • @011100110110010 –> Find tweets that reference “011100110110010″
  • “SEO Blog” near:”London” –> Find tweets that contain the exact phrase “SEO Blog” and sent near “London”
  • near:London within:13mi –> Find tweets that were sent within 13 miles of London!
  • “SEO Blog” since:2010-10-14 –> Find tweets containing “SEO Blog” that were sent since the 14th of October
  • 2010
  • “SEO Blog” until:2010-10-14 —> Find tweets containing “SEO Blog” that were sent up to the 14th of October 2010
  • “SEO Blog” -blackhat :) –> Find tweets that contain “SEO Blog” but not Blackhat and with a positive attitude!
  • “SEO Blog” :( –> Find tweets that contain “SEO Blog” that have a negative attitude!
  • “SEO Blog” ? –> Find tweets that contant “SEO Blog” that also ask a question
  • “SEO Blog” filter:links –> Find tweets that contain “SEO Blog” and also link to specific URL’s
  • “SEO Blog” source:twitterfeed –> Find tweets that contain “SEO Blog” that were entered via Twitterfeed

I didn’t actually realise that the twitter search options were so good, searching within a specific radius or via positive and negative is a very cool thing to have (although I am yet to actually test these!)

I will be back on this subject to discuss possible link ideas but for now hopefully you’ve got something to get on with!
