If I tweet a link to a Hub and someone clicks on it from there, how will it show up in Traffic Sources?
I think it will say "Social - Twitter." That's how it works for Facebook and Pinterest. Thanks for the follow.
Thanks Jan. I must not be getting any traffic from there because I don't have anything that says that.
I'm really not sure about it, Lisa. I had a strange but exciting experience with a link I tweeted last weekend. I did see an increase in views of the hub, not a viral # by any stretch. But when I got my Twitter report, it said that the tweet got 6,317 views, 8 favorites, and 35 link visits. I wish it had been the six thousand for link visits. I guess it means that people will view the tweet but not necessarily open the link. So keep tweetn'
It says "t.co" or some such. I don't remember exactly.
Check the "stats" button at the top of your hub. If a twitter or tweeter viewed it then it should show up as t.co, tco or something like that.
Thanks. I have to remember which ones I've tweeted. The ones I checked don't have that listed but I'll keep checking. Do you all use Twitter to try to get traffic?
I use twitter only for particular hubs that may be interesting to that community but mostly Facebook sometimes for my associates there.
By the way, oh I see paradigmsearch gave the same answer as I did. Anyway, it will tell you how many viewed it from there too. yes, for twitter it is "t.co"
How many followers do you have?
Do you post nothing but links and personal tweets?
Do you use hashtags?
Answers to these questions will decide if you get Twitter traffic from your account or not.
