    I joined Twitter just for a laugh and I notice you can add yer hubs to Twitter straight from the "share" button on here. Any of you experienced Hubbers noticed any increase coming from Twitter ?

      Hi Art - yes, go for it. I get loads of outside traffic by tweeting about my hubs - and after all, it is more likely to be the outside visitors (ie: not your HP fans) who are interested in what you write about other than to support you and who therefore are more likely to click.  I've been using Twitter for my hubs for 3 months now and I do belive that activity helped to grow my business on here.

      You need to join something like Twaitter (there are other, that's the one I use) - and you can program Tweets to go out ona regular basis, you don't have to individually send each tweet. I have tweets going out to various niche twitter accounts for hubs and for my other sites at the rate of a few an hour. The trick is not to set too many and to vary them.

      Also, within your HP account you can set up a tracker for your tweets - it involves copying the url of each hub and inserting your chosen tracker code. You get a lot of useful info that way.  You can find out how to set up a tracker via HP help pages.

      Go for it  -  but be careful only to follow collect targtetted followers on Twitter. By being picky my screenwriting twitter account has attracted a following among professional screenwriters, actors and producers all of whom saw my tweets and emailed me to ask for discretion about who they are. Same with my daughter's tennis site and associated twitter account - she has top ranking players following her.

      I earn more here and on my screenwriting site vecause of twitter.

      Yes it helps SPAMMERS to Find and COPY your content and publish elsewhere. Don't give easy access to your articles to Spammers. Concentrate on Quality of Articles and Organic Traffic.

        Twitter is very helpful in generating traffic and is working for many people including me over here. Spammers can come from anywhere and find your articles and copy content. How you can say that using TWITTER is like helping spammers to find and copy your content.

    I have had only 86 views from Twitter, but I have only very rarely put messages on Twitter and as a result most of these views are due to others posting.

    I think it's great. Every time I tweet a link, it generally gets a few clicks instantly.

    There's even something called YouTwitFace that combines YouTube, Twitter, and FaceBook. I'm not quite that cool, but I do Tweet and get a little stream of traffic when I Tweet a hub or something else I wrote.
    I find that Twitter has a lot of value just in the Tweets I receive. I tend to follow fellow Hubbers and/or Examiners as well as bloggers/artists/etc who I think are interesting. These folks often turn me on to excellent information, articles, artwork, etc that enriches me - and I'd otherwise not have known about it.
    I have been Tweeting for a couple months now and it is finally starting to have a nice warm feeling there, though it definitely seemed strange and impersonal to me at the start.
    Another thing is that you find out about things way before they are on the news if you follow the right people. TMZ tweeted about Michael Jackson before anyone anywhere knew anything. Not a bad tool to have for a writer! (btw, I don't follow tmz - I picked it up on a re-tweet) smile
    I would recommend that everyone give it a chance. Use it to promote, but also to share the work of others you admire. Don't follow just to get followed (at least that's my take) because you'll end up w/ a home page that's so cluttered with new Tweets coming in, it's doubtful that you'll catch the good stuff. If you are putting out links to good articles, your stuff will likely be re-tweeted and you'll end up with followers that fit your niche (if you have one).
    I'm following about 200 people and while that sounds like a lot, I've seen some that are following tens of thousands! That wouldn't work for me. Of course, it would be nice to one day have thousands of followers! big_smile

    Hi,

    Twitter can give you traffic.
    Also a valuable backlink to your site which the search engines count as an extra link. You can never have too many backlinks.

    yes, its worth using Tweets,

    sincerely,
    Jim.

    Since I don't have a following, it doesn't pay to twitter.  If I knew how to get a following, then I'd twit the hubs. smile

      SweetiePieposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      People can discover you on twitter that have never seen your hubs before.  Also if people like what you are twittering about, you will soon get new followers.  Every few days people add me that I do not know and some may just be mass adding, but a few seem genuinely interested in what I am twittering about.  I do not twitter very much though to be honest.

    Twitter has generated traffic for my hubs.  I am not as diligent with my tweets, but have managed to begin a small gathering of followers.  I'm sure that if I were to spend a bit more time tweaking things, I'd be able to increase traffic flow to both sites.  There's been some excellent information given in this thread...which I'll have to follow up on.  smile
