Here are a few quick tips to help you use Twitter to send targeted traffic to your blog:

1. Tweet About Your Latest Blog Post

Tweeting about your latest blog post is quick and easy to do. Even so, it is easy to forget to tweet every time you publish a new blog post. So it makes sense to automate your blog-post update tweets.

If you are running a self-hosted WordPress blog there are a number of plugins you can install to automate your blog tweets. One that looks interesting is SNAP (Social Networks Auto-Poster) by but I have not tested it.

You can also use  or to automatically syndicate your blog content to Twitter and Facebook.

2. Add Hashtags To Your Keywords

Try adding a hashtag (#) immediately before one of the keywords in your tweet so that it will get picked up in the Twitter search. One hashtag per tweet is enough, two is the maximum. Any more than that may be viewed as “hashtag spam” by your followers.

3. … And Auto-Retweet Your Old Blog Posts

One more thing you can do to automate your blog-tweets is to install the “Revive Old Post” plugin and set it to tweet about your old blog posts so as to keep a fresh stream of traffic coming to them from Twitter (and other social networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn if you wish).

4. Ask Your Readers To Tweet Your Blog Posts

You will not get many tweets for your blog posts if you do not ask for them. One way to do that is simply to post a “Tweet” button above or below your blog content. For WordPress bloggers, there are plugins you can install to do that for you.

On this blog,, I use “Share Buttons” by AddToAny to add Twitter and my other social media share buttons to the foot of every blog post.

I also recommend that WordPress bloggers install the “Tweet This” pluginThe plugin enables you to embed suggested tweets right into the body of the article  itself. How cool is that!? Tweet This

By making it easy for your readers to post your content on Twitter, you are greatly increasing the likelihood that some will do so.

5. Persuade Your Followers To Retweet

When your Twitter followers retweet one of your tweets, it is posted on the Twitter feeds of all their followers. It is one of the best ways to raise your profile on Twitter and get more people to follow you.

The best way to get retweets is to subtly persuade your followers by creating compelling, funny or intriguing tweets that link out to highly engaging content.
