5 Ways To Boost Your Blog Traffic Through Twitter

2018-05-30 03.11.14 2.jpgSocial media is definitely an important part of blogging in order assist your blog getting seen by others and driving more traffic to your blog. For me, I have found twitter to be the most useful of these to get my blog posts ‘out there’ if you will and seen by more people. Through a lot of hard work I have manage to continually improve my blog stats month upon month. Although my blog traffic may not be as great as others, these tips that I have picked up have definitely helped me along the way and I wish I knew them a lot earlier in my blogging journey.

Blogger RT Accounts

Whenever you’re promoting your blog posts, don’t forget to tag blogger RT accounts or use their hashtags in your tweets! Blogger RT accounts help to share bloggers content to reach more people, so this is a great way to get your content out there and to also discover new bloggers too.

A few Blogger RT accounts that I would recommend would be: GRLPOWR Chat, Bloggers Tribe, TeaCupClub, The Blog Club and Bee Chat. There are a variety of these RT accounts out there that are designed to help bloggers of all kinds, make use of them!

Comment Threads

I would recommend comment threads to any blogger, old or new, in order to get your blog posts and drive engagement to your blog! With these bloggers will generally reply to a tweet with a link to their latest blog post, allowing others to discover their new blog posts. This is a great way to get your blog posts out their to more people whilst also discovering new bloggers and blog posts that you may not have come across! Since I’ve started regularly using these I’ve seen a big improvement in my blog stats, and I love discovering new blog posts to read!

Hashtags

I’ve already mentioned using hashtags related to Blogger RT accounts, but may also be useful to use a couple of other hashtags alongside these in order to help your blog posts out. For example, use a hashtag relating to your relevant niche if you have one, for example #lbloggers for lifestyle bloggers or #bbloggers for beauty bloggers. Try and use hashtags that relate to your blog post too if possible. For example, if you’re sharing a mental health or lgbt then use hashtags relating to the topic in order to reach more people.

Follow Threads

Follow threads are essentially when bloggers reply to a tweet with links to their blog and other social media for others to check out and follow. I’ve occasionally made my own follow threads which have gone down successfully with other bloggers. This is a great way to discover new blogs as well as sharing your own with others!

Pin Your Latest Post

Not everyone may see your tweet when your blog post first goes live. Because of this, I would suggest pinning a tweet that includes a link to your latest blog post. This way you’ll hopefully be able to drive more traffic to your latest blog post rather than your tweet getting lost! I always try and do this if I remember to.

Really helpful post, thank you for sharing! x
