4 Intelligent Tips to Boost Your Blog Traffic through Twitter
Tick tock…..tick tock…..have you tweeted recently?
Shrewd professional bloggers use twitter from an intelligent space. Unfortunately, many newbie or even veteran bloggers follow a dated approach to tweeting.
Old axioms like “stay in the stream” are falling by the wayside as readers and tweeters are becoming more sophisticated. Aggressive tweeters are becoming an extinct species these days.
Since social media users have likely seen every trick in the book.
Being authentic is the #1 tool in your twitter arsenal. Real, genuine, thoughtful pro blogging tweeters like Darren Rowse at ProBlogger get it.
Check out his twitter stream. He’s real. He asks questions. He provides answers. He’s personable. He attracts traffic to his blog by being attractive on twitter. He’s not trying to get traffic. He’s trying to help.
Let’s dive into the tips.
In a noisy, chaotic twitter environment you can’t outshout a gazillion tweeters.
Think of children in kindergarten, attempting to out scream one another to grab the teacher’s attention. Nobody really stands out from the crowd.
Meanwhile, the kid who quietly walks up to the desk and offers their teacher an apple gets noticed quickly.
Power attracts. Force negates.
Authentic bloggers yield twitter power. People who serve, and help, and ask, and chat about stuff other than their blog, or business, attract followers who appreciate their authenticity.
Many attracted followers will be more than happy to click on their blog link, or their latest post, to learn more about said attractive blogger.
Authentic people thank their RTers and respond to @replies a few times daily. Engage often to attract trusting followers, to boost your link clicks and to increase your blog traffic.
Retweet Early and Often
Smart tweeters obey the hallowed Golden Rule of social media; give what you wish to receive. Retweet others freely to inspire tweeters to retweet your tweets freely.
Other Golden Rule following bloggers will freely retweet your work, expanding your presence in the process. Retweeting frequently is the easiest way to increase your traffic through this microblogging platform.
