Combining Backlinks With Twitter

Updated on August 19, 2013

Use Twitter To Create Depth In Your Backlinks

Creating backlinks for your website is a great way to generate tons of traffic and up your rankings in the pages of Google and other search engines. A backlink can be described as a direct link to your website from other websites or internet locations. Bloggers essentially use backlinks on their blogs to generate traffic to different sites and location on the internet.

There are many ways that you can include back links through the help from Twitter and are used daily by many internet marketers. The best part about using Twitter for your backlinks is that you can do this strategy free. There are many ways that you can incorporate backlinks and Twitter... let's go over a few different ways that you create backlinks by using Twitter and how they can generate traffic to your website or services.

Keeping Regular Updates On Back Links â Whenever you are using Twitter in your arsenal to generate traffic back to your website you want to make sure that you create âTweetsâ with up to date backlinks. There is nothing worse than tweeting something and the backlink leading them no where. Make sure that you create different messages along with your back link so that it doesn't seem like you are spamming Twitter with the same old thing.

Share Your Blog Posts - Many marketers have found that sharing their blog posts with their followers is a great way to generate traffic to their websites and services. Make sure that when you âTweetâ that you have a new blog post that you make a unique message that will attract eyes such as, âCheck Out My New Blog Postâ and then give them the direct link to your blog post.

By sending your followers to your blog post, they will then be able to look at your blog and potentially click on your back link to your website or service. So you always want to make sure that you have your back links ready and available on your blog.

I think twitter is an under utilized method of promoting great content!

I believe that if everyone would share there lens and share great lens we could create a positive wildfire of new lens creators and viewers to Squidoo.

Tell Me Something About You, But In 140 Characters Or Less!

Tell Them About Your Articles - You can also incorporate article marketing with your Twitter page. You ask how? Easy. Just simply "Tweet" when you have a new article on your blog or with a specific article directory. Remember that your followers love finding out new information, ideas, advice, etc. when it comes to their interests.

So your main goal needs to be creating detailed and informative articles and then providing a back link to your website or services. We will go more in detail about how you can incorporate article written marketing and Twitter in the next chapter.

Encourage Re - "Tweeting" - Some of the most powerful forms of driving traffic to your site through the use of backlinks using Twitter is to encourage your followers to re- "Tweet" your post. You'd be surprised at how many of your followers will actually follow your encouragement and re- "Tweet" your post where their followers can see the post again.

Many bloggers simply make a post including their backlink to wherever you want your followers to go and then at the bottom of the post they write, "Pls RT," meaning please re- "Tweet." This is a fairly new tactic that many marketers have found to be very beneficial to getting "targeted" visitors to wherever it is the backlink is sending their follower.

Provide "Other Followers" Backlinks - There is nothing more that other marketers and followers like than for other related niche marketers to provide back links to their website or services. Think about it this way... wouldn't you yourself be happy if you new that 5 of your Twitter followers provided posts with your website backlink or blog post backlink. Heck yea you would!

This will not only boost your popularity among your field or niche that you are in but also helps gain you relationships with others where you both can work together hand in hand. The best part of course about doing this particular technique is that you are able to reach out to other followers that might not have been following you before.

As we all know no one person will have the same exact followers no matter what niche you are in... so having the ability to get your backlink noticed by someone not already following you can prove to be a great way to generate potential new customers as well as followers that may grow to like and trust you and in turn become a potential customer for the future.

Friday Anyone?

Participate in the Follow Friday Program - The Follow Friday program is great for anyone looking to get there backlinks out and about the Twitter world. In this program other Twitter members will "Tweet" and suggest certain people to follow to their followers. You can use this program hand in hand with other marketing avenues. Every Friday, hence the name of the program Follow Friday, you need to suggest another fellow "Tweeter" to your followers. In turn, you will find that others will soon start suggesting their followers to follow you as well.

This is a great way to get your backlinks viewed by a substantial amount of people and gain you followers at the same time. Remember that the more people you have following you, the more of a chance that you will have in them deciding to check out your link to your website or service and becoming a customer of yours.

Use SEO To Your Advantage - There are ways for you to use backlinks and SEO all in one. Recently search engines such as Bing and Google have decided to place recent and popular "Tweets" to index a website. This can prove to be great for you!

Simply put, social networking sites are the "new craze" not only with the people that use it, but the internet world as a whole. Search engines are no fool to this concept as well and have since started working with social media sites to better help people find what they are looking for.

Although you don't want to seem like a spammer to your followers, you want to make sure that you use SEO in your "Tweets." This way Google and other search engines will be able to index you accordingly. For those of you who are not familiar with the term SEO, this stands for search engine optimization. Search engine optimization is basically keywords for a particular niche or field. You want to make sure that you research and find the best keywords to fit your particular niche and then incorporate them in your "Tweets" while applying your backlink as well to wherever you are sending your followers.

The better ranking that your "Tweets" receive through the search engines, of course the better chance you will have for your backlink to be clicked on by more than just your followers, but people searching for those particular keywords and running across your "Tweet" and backlink.

Link Twitter To Every Aspect of Your Marketing Tactics - As we all know, more and more websites, businesses, and organizations are tapping into the social networking craze as well. You can literally link anything on the internet today with Twitter. For example, let's say you find a website that has a "Tweet This" button applied. When you press the button, you automatically "Tweet" it to your followers to check it out!

Pretty cool trick huh? Well there is no reason what so ever that you shouldn't do the same. Especially providing this tool on your website as well, that way when others come to visit your site they can then give their followers a backlink to your site and it will be instantly tweeted to their current followers. This is a great tool to use that takes little effort on your part bu tin turn will generate tons of popularity to your website!

There are many ways that you can incorporate backlinks and Twitter together. Make sure that you research to find out what best helps you with your efforts of receiving traffic from your backlinks using Twitter. Remember that there are always new things being added to social media sites everyday, so keep with the latest technology and incorporate it in your traffic generating arsenal!
