If you can use Twitter well, you can get more hits on your blogs, websites, or articles. Recently, someone asked me why my news articles get many more hits than theirs do. One of my questions to them was, "Are you tweeting?"
Next, I told them to tweet their article and keep tweeting it with a change in the wording each time. I went to one of their reports on ALLVOICES.com and tweeted their article for them on my Twitter account. I told them each and every time I tweet I get anywhere from 3 - 15 new hits, even on old articles.
After I tweeted their stagnating article, I left and came back a short time later to find many more hits on it. I told them I had done so, just to prove my point. Since then, on average, their articles have consistently been getting more hits.
Also, be sure you are following lots of people on Twitter and lots of people will follow you. The more followers you have, the more people see your tweets and possibly click on them -- if they are interested in the topic or product you are advertising.
Another way I draw people to my site or articles is by putting only my site's URL address on my profile. That way if someone is viewing my Twitter account, the only thing they see is:
ALLVOICES: Citizen's Journalist
So, what do you think they do? I believe, many people click on my ALLVOICES profile page. Who knows how many more hits I get on my reports just by drawing people to my profile page?
Once they are on my page, there are many articles to entice them to read others. I organize my stories in categories on the left to give viewers more to choose from.
Time has gone by where I have not written articles for a couple of days and come back to my profile page and seen many more hits on my old stories. Sure, some came from other sources, but I'd be willing to bet many came from my Twitter profile and my constant tweeting of old and new stories.
*Put your site's URL on your Twitter profile.
*Retweet your article, site, or product several times a day, and change the wording.
*to old articles that aren't time sensitive and retweet them over and over.
*Tweet other people's articles and you will find others will tweet yours.
*Follow lots of people on Twitter and many will follow you.
***Remember, tweet unto others how you would want them to tweet unto you!
