While sharing some items on Land Surveyors United earlier I started to think about the search engine optimization of my outgoing tweets on shared items from the network.
The first 27 characters of a tweet are supposed to be the most heavily indexed by search engines, so the default "Checking out....(item)" for every outgoing share virtually does nothing for your network.
Go into language editor and search for "Checking Out" and you'll get 3 results...change the portion that says "Checking out..." to something more along the lines of your network's primary keywords. For example I changed mine to "Surveyors should check out.." ad shown below. Important to remember to leave all of the trailing %2 and otherwise after the Checking out portion of that text.
