    hey harsh
    but i think for more social exposure we need real folloewers who can retweet comment or share their posts withus , so no need of directories what i do is post cool stuff daily (other than my blog links ) not so much followers but i picked up around 60

    • says

      You are right that real followers are useful than just getting followers for numbers. These directories help users to find people based on their interest. More like like-minded people.

    Is it just me or do most of these programmes have problem authenticating and have bugs? I’ve sat here for nearly an hour and had a problem with most of them! :(

    Hi Harsh,
    When someone starts blogging then after some months of devotion it is important for blogger to increase bonds using social platforms. Twitter is one of them. Submitting a blog to these directories by bring tweets to posts which have great significance. I was also seeking for good directories to submit my blog. You have provided me with lots of options.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Harsh,
    these website are good to gain followers. But along them there is rush in auto tweets which is not tolerable. How to remove these tweets and how they can be prevented in future.

  5. Raspal Seni says

    Hi Harsh,

    Would listing in theseTwitter directories get me clients or business? When I started my main blog last October, that’s what I thought. People do get clients from social networks, I do know but how? That’s the question for me, ATM.

    Maybe I’ve added the wrong people (mostly bloggers, writers and now following social media experts who follow me). What kind of people do I need to add to get clients and business from Twitter? Just getting more followers … don’t know if that’s all that is needed. Please enlighten me on this topic.

    I also just started updating my empty Linkedin profile. That’s more business oriented, so hoping to get clients from there. Will try adding my Twitter profile to all of the directories you mentioned above. Thank you for this post, which could help me a lot.

    Thank you Harsh for this nice article, I was on cacation so it took me long time to intract again.
    Twitter is now a big market place for webmaster and everyone want to gain more follower some one by white hat some one fro black hat.
    Buying and selling twitter follower is also trending now.

    • says

      @Dk Patel that’s so true…Big numbers always look good, but from marketing ROI (Clicks and conversions), it’s better to have a few but loyal following who really cares about the tweets made by a brand or an individual. Though I don’t say buying Twitter follower is good, as in Twitter world big number of following is always good and increases the further visibility. Thanks for dropping by and for your comment. :)

  7. Nitin Patel says

    Since, Last few days I have been trying very much hard to gain some twitter followers. After reading this post, I got the way. I’ll definitely try some of these directories. Thank you Harsh.
    After all SEO today is all about social media unlike before when you only had to concentrate on aggressive” link building”(The term is now outdated, probably) strategies to get your page ranked on google.

  8. Rohit says

    Hey harsh,

    I must say that Twitter is a great platform for traffic. If you are having a large number of followers then you might be having a great traffic towards your blog/website.
    But if we see another side of this, there are many services which offers you soem fan following but soon after using their services, you will found that although you gained many followers in one day but soon they start unfollowing you or the services you offer. So, beware of those services always.
    but the list you mentioned on your blog is a really good one and i will surely use this in order to increase my followers.
    Thanks for providing such an awesome post harsh.
