10 Simple Twitter Tactics That Will Get You More Traffic Today

Are you struggling to harness the power of Twitter for your blog?

You want more followers, more engagement and, of course, more traffic for your content.

You see other bloggers killing it on Twitter, and you want some of that success for yourself, but you don’t know where to start.

The platform already seems super noisy and has experts on every topic known to man. So what can you do to stand out?

You might worry that you need a sophisticated Twitter strategy, but don’t stress. If you focus on a few simple tactics, you’ll easily tap into a community that will support your work and drive the traffic your content deserves.

And even if you don’t have tons of followers just yet, you can make the most of those you do have, and start to get on the radars of the influencers that matter.

(Having 100 of the right people following you rather than thousands of the wrong people is always better anyway.)

Regardless of whether you’re a big fish or a tiny minnow in the Twitter pond, you can use the following tactics to get more traffic for your content today.

Blogger Outreach: How to Get Influencers to Promote Your Content for Free

Blogger Outreach: How to Get Influencers to Promote Your Content for Free

Note from Jon: Let me introduce this post by saying something shocking: if you want a chance in hell of being noticed online, you need to spend as much time promoting your post as you do writing it. Maybe more. The question is… how? The answer: read this guide from one of the hottest up and comers online right now, Brian Dean.

Ever notice how some blogs seem to arrive out of nowhere?

A few months earlier, you’d never even heard of the blog.

Then suddenly it’s plastered over half the Twitter and Facebook feeds in your niche.

And almost overnight, the person behind the blog is the go-to expert in the field.

Annoying, isn’t it?

After all, your content is just as good as theirs (if not better). You know just as much about your topic as they do (if not more). And you work just as hard (if not harder) promoting your work on social media.

So what’s their secret?

How do they skyrocket their blog’s traffic and subscriber numbers … while you’re still struggling to move the needle?

Is it their content?

(That’s important, but frankly not enough to guarantee success.)

Is it their eye-catching design?

(Good design helps, but it won’t automatically get you to the top.)

Did they just get lucky?

(With 164 million blogs online, they’d have better odds of winning the lottery.)

Believe it or not, most bloggers who make a name for themselves use a strategy that’s as old school as Netscape and 56k modems.

And because it may not initially seem as exciting as a new traffic technique or the latest social media network, most bloggers overlook this time-tested approach, even though it often leads to explosive blog growth.

But let’s reveal exactly how you can use this untapped strategy to grow your blog quicker than you ever thought possible.

You’re working hard. Bloody hard.

You share your best tips. You edit and polish your posts. You wrack your brain for the perfect headline.

But that’s not all.

You promote your posts on Facebook and Twitter. You build an email list. You stalk influencers and write guest posts.

But somehow you feel your efforts aren’t paying off.

You want more shares, more comments, more enthusiasm for your blog.

But you’re simply not getting the response you deserve.

It’s soooo frustrating.

Because you can’t work any harder.

Isn’t there a smarter way? A way to truly engage your existing audience instead of constantly fighting for new readers? A way to entice them to comment more? And tempt them to share your posts?

Yep, there is a way. And it all comes down to this:

Readers don’t want to be informed; they want to be seduced. (Click to tweet)

That’s right. You need to seduce your readers with each headline, each paragraph, each sentence.

You need to make your content so irresistible that your readers crave your next post.

How? It’s easier than you might think.

If you use the following 18 tips to become a master in the art of seduction, your readers will be hanging on your every word.

They won’t want more of your writing; they’ll beg for it.

Announcing “Google Authorship: The Complete Handbook for Getting Respect, Readers and Ratings” (Get It Free)

Newsflash:

There are big changes coming to the way Google looks at your content.

Instead of just looking at what you say, they’re also starting to study who you are – your expertise, your friends, your influence, not only on your own site, but on every page across the web.

If you’re an authority, your content will get a boost to its rankings, regardless of where you publish it. And if you’re nobody? Well, you’ll be even more invisible than ever.

It’s a new feature Google is rolling out called “Google Authorship”. Paired with “Author Rank” – a hotly-anticipated way of giving trusted writers better better rankings – it’s a game changer for online writers. The details are still being sorted out, but they are officially tracking you. If you’re serious about your search engine rankings, you have to prepare.

The good news?

We got you covered. :-)

Today, we’re announcing Google Authorship: The Complete Handbook for Getting Respect, Readers and Ratings. It’s a massive 15,352 word guide, walking you step-by-step through absolutely everything you need to know to prepare for the upcoming changes and get as much traffic as possible.

It’s also the coming out party for Glen Long, the new Managing Editor here at BBT. He’s worked with us full-time for a few months now, editing all of the posts you’ve seen lately, but this is his first post.

And it’s a doozy. For months now, he’s immersed himself in the details to compile the most comprehensive guide about Google Authorship ever written. He’s also going to update it as Google rolls out new changes, keeping you constantly informed.

It’s all totally free. No registration or anything.

All we ask is you share it with your friends and link to it whenever you talk about Google Authorship. Click here to take a look.

How to Craft Tweetable Quotes That Spread Your Content like Wildfire

How to Craft Tweetable Quotes That Spread Your Content like Wildfire

It hurts when a post you labored over doesn’t get any comments.

And it stings when no one shares your content on Facebook or Twitter.

But it really feels like a punch to the gut when your ideas don’t go anywhere, doesn’t it?

After all, most of us became bloggers because we had ideas we wanted to spread.

Important ideas. Life-changing ideas. Hell, even world-changing ideas.

But if your ideas aren’t spreading, does that mean you’re failing as a blogger? Is it time to give up?

Before you go off and have a pity party, let’s ask ourselves why your ideas haven’t taken off.

Maybe you haven’t found your voice yet. Maybe your niche is just too crowded. Maybe you’re looking for inspiration in the wrong places.

Or maybe you know how to come up with interesting ideas, but you’re not so good at promoting them. Or you genuinely have a brilliant new take on the world, but you fail when “selling” it to others.

If this describes you, do not despair. You’re not alone. And there is an answer.

But first, let’s pinpoint what’s holding you back.
