After Digg and stumbleupon, one of the viral traffic source is Twitter. Like Digg effect soon we will have Twitter effect, when any post getting viral on Twitter can burn your server space and bandwidth. Though I’m sure you will never mind that.
To get traffic from twitter, it’s very important that your post should be Tweeted by large number of people. Making them retweet is a different option, but giving them the easiest way to tweet your blog post is what we need to deal here.
One important factor to make your post more reachable is hashtags. When you tweet any post make sure you add a Hash (#) as a prefix to the keyword. For an example Suppose you tweeting about WordPress. Add a Hash before the word WordPress. i.e #wordpress.
There are many twitter retweet service available for blogs, though one of the best is Tweetmeme.
Tweetmeme button is one highly recognized button for tweets. Anyone can retweet your post using this button, and this will increase your Retweet count, along with it, you will get notified about it.
Most of top blogs are using Tweetmeme button, and it is becoming a standard and getting recognition.
The major benefit which I’m getting with Tweetmeme button is, I can keep track of post, which is being considered by my readers and I can increase the frequency of such posts.
One such post was 5 ways of making money online which got almost 20+ retweet within an hour. Not a very high appealing number, but considering without pushing any tweet, 20+ retweet for a single post is good IMO.
The point here is, you should always give liberty of retweeting your post with one click of mouse.
For readers : If you are not very familiar with Tweetmeme button, see it in action at the bottom of the post. You can also use Twitterbar Firefox addon to tweet with single click.
