Recently, I manage to run a small test using my twitter account. I only manage to get 80-100 visits for each blog update that posted on Twitter. Comparing the number of followers, this is too low. I am expecting about 1% of my followers to visit the link posted on my tweets, that is 600 visits. This figure is still too far to achieve. But, I manage to see the difference by following a few simple steps. The number of visits increased almost twice by following this method. I am sure many will experience the same too following this simple method.
1. Don’t post more than 10 tweets a day
2. Don’t post links in each of your tweets
3. For every 5 tweets, post one tweet with link
4. Repeat the above step each day
Just follow the above step and check your google analytics on traffic referred from Twitter. You will surely notice the difference from the number of visits referred from Twitter within few days. Nowadays, there are almost all tweets pops up with a link. If the title is good, provoking, attractive, etc we may click it. But, this has been misused for affiliate links by many twitter accounts. I have noticed many twitter accounts with only links posted from last 100 tweets. Obviously, the number of people that will click on any of the link is slimmer.
So, don’t make your twitter account look spammy. Don’t share links frequently on your tweets. This will definitely makes us looks like a spammer. Plus, take note of your follower’s timeline too. If large number of followers is from U.S Boston time, don’t post a link during office hours in Japan. Keep your tweet with link as the most important tweet of the day and post it when the time is right. Share with me on your methods on getting more people click on our links on tweets.
