Getting Twitter Traffic with Almost No Self Promotion
All Twitter users are trying to increase the popularity of their profiles, some of them are doing it wrong while others do not care. There is no doubt that social networks are the basis for building the popularity on the internet, but for success – knowledge is required.
As I said earlier in my post “Social Signals for SEO” all social media posts contain “nofollow” attribute, and as such do not participate in the SERP’s, so all my, your posts will not attract the attention of people that are searching content through search engines. How do we get more attention? By sharing quality content and by following communication rules!
How to Promote Twitter Profile and Attract More Followers?
In society, there are good and bad practices. Many Twitter users are using various methods to gain popularity. Some of them are very extreme like buying Twitter followers, creating thousands fictive accounts and some others. This is obviously the wrong way to increase the popularity. It may seem good at the beginning, but in a long term it will be disastrous.
There are many right ways for promotion. What matters is the way you communicate with other Twitter users. Without good communication, no matter what you do, will not end well.
Twitter Communication Best Practices
Quality writer does not need to worry about his/her Twitter profile. It will naturally become better and better if heshe is following general communication rules. Those rules are nothing else but high-quality interaction with others. This includes:
- Being generous and engaging with your followers can bring lots of response.
- When you generously share others content, they share your content
- Making a list. Create the list of people who are generous to you
- Share their content in return, but make sure that you share the content related to your niche.
Frequent interaction will surely bring you more followers while inconstant – rare interaction will do the opposite.
My Triberr Story
To help my Twitter profile and become noticed by the relevant people who may be interested in my blogs, I’ve decided to use Triberr. Triberr is a great web service, of which I previously wrote. It gives you an opportunity to see your content being shown on another blog as a guest post. The most amazing part is that this same Triberr Enables content to be shared with its own comments.
I’ve managed to join 12 Triberr tribes that have 560 tribe-mates, and given that they all share my content to their Twitter followers, range of people that now have access to my tweets consist of 8,176,754 of people! Can you imagine having 8 million Twitter followers?
After checking my monthly statistics, I’ve noticed that number of referral traffic through Twitter has increased by 145% last month, which is amazing. My tribe-mates have willingly decided to Retweet my blog posts because they found something that matters to them. So, by following the rules of communication and Triberr service, my Twitter profile has become more visited than ever before with over 40k of followers. And you can see in the screenshot below that Twitter is the No.1 referral traffic source.
There is no doubt that content needs to be presented to the high number of people, but it has to be a natural progression. Radical methods like: buying followers or similar is not something you need. Your communication frequency, content you post must be of high quality, and after some time your profile will evolve by itself.
