    So, Google have decided that they need a microblogging site.

    www.jaiku.com

    You'll find me at

    http://andredenito.jaiku.com

    Not sure what it's like, or if it will hold it's own against Twitter, but I'm going to have a play. If you decide to have a play too, add me.

    I am also thinking that this could be used to generate additional traffic (although the amount will depend on the number of friends).  In addition I think it should also generate backlinks in the same way that submitting an article to Digg, Myspace etc will do (although if someone else knows otherwise I will stand corrected!).

      It's the same as with Twitter. Now Twitter is being indexed by google, each link on Twitter becomes a back link. So if google are indexing Jaiku (which nI expect if there not already they will be soon) then yeah, it'll be another (FREE!) back link. And if we can get loads of people to join, we could hopefully generate some more traffic.

        Hmmm. Just a thought. On Twitter, (and maybe on Jaiku too), the link that we post to an article is actually a TinyURL (or equivalent). My question is: Is their any SEO benefit with a backlink that is a TinyURL?

          That's a good question. Yes it's the same on Juika, if the link is too long it will auto shorten it to a tiny url. I'm not sure on weather that gives a good back link, will need to wait for someone with more experience of things like Twitter (Julie-Ann Amos about??)

          I have never had any of my links being auto-shortened to tinyurl on either system.  Have posted links to a couple of my hubs on both and none were shortened, so hopefully this shows that they aren't shortened (at least for short addresses).
