    SEO and Social networks


    Following and tweeting someone who is a competitor or in a related field as mine. Can that have a positive effect on my SEO. If so please explain.

    I am a newbie to the SEO environment so I apologies for the elementary nature of my questions.

    It might help THEIR SEO.
    Google has affirmed that social media mentions are used as ranking signals - the idea is to have people following and tweeting YOU and about YOUR business.

    To get that to happen though, you'll need to garner a following and garner interest in your work, which often means following and tweeting competitors.
