Twitter out ranks UK property Portals
17 April, 2009 | Web design
As Twitters popularity continues at pace, its impact on the UK's property market has seen huge growth in 2009, technically in tune estate agents, large and small, are Twittering in a big way, now even the portals are joining in the fun.
For serious Twitter fans it will come as no surprise that last month, for the first time, the site has entered the much coveted UK's top 100 most visited websites, according web analyst Hitwise, Twtter entered the top 100 at position 91
Social media is now an integral part of online marketing for estate agents and although it might have taken some a while to realise it, no one wants to be left behind.
The Times Money blog compiled a list of the 'Top 20 British property profiles on Twitter' and gave two spots to globrix.com for @Globrix and their clever @PropertyPorn identity, which twitters fabulously expensive and luxurious eye candy from globrix.com for the property obsessed.
Twitter profiles from other portals which made the Times list include: @zoopla, @nestoria, @findaproperty and @primelocation.:
Off the list there are plenty more, including UK market leader @rightmove with over 200 followers and @enormo_uk with almost 400 followers. Loads of agents are also getting themselves onto Twitter.
Perhaps more important than who is twittering, is the question of how Twitter can be beneficial to your business, check out my blog post on Twittering for more information.
