Finally My Twitter Account is Back in Twitter Search

I have been using Twitter for more than 3 years and I really enjoyed using this micro blogging platform, both personally and professionally. Twitter gave me some of the best online friends and it also helped me to promote websites of my clients and friends. From the time Google started showing up real time search results, the traffic to my websites increased considerably.

Of late the traffic started diminishing, but I did not search the root cause as I was busy with some personal matters. I wished to know the reason, but left it as it is due to lack of time. It was at this point of time that one of my Twitter friend, Blair Semenoff aka @Flipbooks informed me regarding the fact that my Twitter profile is blocked from the Twitter search engine and my tweets are visible only to my followers.

This was alerting news for me and I was happy that ultimately I got to know about one of the reasons behind the drop in the website traffic. Blair told me that it happens to a large number of Twitter users and this can be resolved by submitting a ticket at Twitter. I took the help of Twitter help center and initiated a ticket regarding the blocking of my Twitter profile in Twitter search engine.

After 2-5 days, I got a mail asking me to explain the exact problem in details. After replying to the mail, I got another mail the next day saying that my block has been removed and would be reflected in the next 24 hours. This was a happy moment for me and now my profile and tweets are showing up in the Twitter search thereby getting me more traffic to my websites.

If anyone is facing the same issue, then don’t hesitate to contact the Twitter help center and they are too generous to the complaints.

    Hi Bala,
    It may take some time…In my case I got the response withing a week, but few of my friends had to wait for 2-3 weeks. so it would be better for you to wait and check your mails regularly for any updates :)
