Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few years, you’ve probably heard about Twitter. It’s another super easy-to-use tool that can improve your chances of getting website traffic IF you don’t overuse it. While there are several other ways as well that allow you to buy targeted web traffic for a certain period of time.
The best way to learn how to use Twitter is to just visit the site and sign up. It takes less than 5 minutes and you are ready to get started. They have plenty of tutorials to help you if you get stuck.
The problem that many people are having lately is that too many people are trying to scam the system with auto-posting software. So the owners of Twitter have tried to put some limits on how many “friends” and “followers” you can have.
None of these limits should affect you as long as you don’t go crazy and try to follow thousands of people. Use the site the way it was meant to be used and you should be fine.
So how do you use it for getting website traffic? Simple. Once you sign up, you make little “tweets” about what you are doing. Have you found a cool video? Then post “Hey, check out this video I found!” and leave the link for it. Same thing with a great blog post, or picture, or just about anything.
Every once in a while of course, you also want to leave a link back to your own site. It’s also a good idea to put a link to your site on your profile page. People that are your “followers” will see these little posts and links on their own Twitter home page.
So the key to making this work is to get lots of followers. You do this by following other people, but, and this is important, you should try to only follow people who have the same interests as you do. Otherwise, they may think you are just one of the numerous spammers out there and they won’t bother following you back.
This is a method that works best if you stay involved. Make 2 or 3 posts a day, but only post about your own site every 4 or 5 times so that it looks natural. Give people that are following you interesting links to visit, and you will find that this is a very simple and quick method of getting website traffic without paying for it.
