SEO is becoming harder. Don’t let this scare you because 80% of my income is generated from Google traffic but, in order to make sure I’m spreading my bets, I’ve also been playing with social media too. And it’s a hell of a lot of fun . . .
So say ‘ello to my liddle frieeend!
TweetAdder is by far the coolest Twitter automation tool around and I’m loving it. I’ll take you through what it does in just a sec but first let’s talk turkey:
Q. Why do I need Twitter?
A. You don’t just need Twitter, you also need Facebook & Youtube too IMO. These 3 sites are the powerhouses of the social media world. Google is crawling them all the time and so having your presence there is great for SEO. Plus you can get tons of traffic *if* you know what you’re doing.
Q. How can I incorporate Twitter into my current campaigns?
A. This is tricky. If you’re building small flippable adsense sites around keywords like “electronic darboard” then don’t bother. But if you’re in any niche which has a human interest angle (dieting, ex back, health) then building up your twitter and facebook following is really worth while.
Q. Why Jimmy, why is Twitter/Facebook worthwhile?
A. Because people sit at their desks all day, logged in with these sites open. They spend tons of time on them because they’re fun. They spend hours going to and from work on them on their phones. They go to Google to search for information, but they go to Twitter and Facebook to hang out with friends and to network.
Q. But nobody is going to want to follow or join my Psoriasis treatment review site on the social networks.
A. You’ll be surprised. I have quite a few facebook pages and twitter accounts for sites in health niches which are being found organically as they spread due to the viral nature of these networks. Just because you wouldn’t follow or join something doesn’t mean others won’t.
But here’s the thing . . .
These sites ARE NOT for selling your products (IMO). Use the social networks to reach out to your audience and pull click to your site. So after you add a blog post you tweet it, get them to your site where they can then explore further. Just make sure your posts are interesting and engaging. Twitter and Facebook are there to help you become friends with your niche. Once your niche is familiar with you, they come to you for advice and guidance on purchases – guaranteed!
But who really has time to mess around with these things?
Here’s why you want TweetAdder.
1. It automatically finds relevant people in your niche and follows them, plus it automatically follows anyone who follows you.
2. It automatically sends a ‘thank you’ message to anyone who follows you. Here’s where I write: “Hey thanks for the follow, wanna hang out on facebook too?” [link to FB page]
3. It unfollows anyone who doesn’t follow you back after a certain amount of time (you decide how long).
4. It allows you to load up and spin tweets for a truly set and forget system. You decide how often you tweet.
5. Drop in the RSS feed from your site and it’ll automatically tweets your blog posts when they’re released.
6. It’s responds when someone retweets your tweets.
7. It will retweet the big players in your niche to help spread good info to your followers.
8. It replies to messages for you.
Plus I’m sure it does other cool stuff I haven’t figured out yet. Jump over to the sales page for the full run down.
One very cool way of adding this to sites is to use a WordPress Plugin called “Share & Follow.” It’s sits nicely on the side of the page and also adds the Retweet & Like buttons to your posts (if you want them).
And I’ll throw in a “How to Use Twitter” ebook as a free bonus to make sure you’re happy getting started. Just email me the receipt.
Thanks for reading and happy Tweeting!
