Do you think posting links on twitter will help you to drive traffic to your hubs? I dont think so, because many of the tweeters are using to promote their stuff and not for sharing their thoughts. They all will be in the rush to promote theirs and will not click on the links thats tweeted.
The trick is not to drive traffic but to draw it. I use twitter to pormote major posts on one of my blogs. People interested in that topic do follow the feed and do visit the blog. But it is because they want the information, not because I am randomly promoting everything I do at them.
Twitter has the potential to bring traffic to your hub.
It is only a tool and the traffic you get through it (or through any other tool, for that matter) depends on the health and strength of your network.
If your network is a group of like-minded people or people who are interested in what you are writing about, you will definitely get good traffic from Twitter.
I got my website to No 1 on google no1 on yahoo and no 1 on bing they may be a few places down now as i have not looked lately but twitter does work ps i have not used twitter for four months now and my website is still near the top, I also have tweet adder but do not use it as it is very impersonal and the emails will flood you out. If you are going to use it at all get the url shorten er and write funny and and punchy stuff.
ps i had to type solid for one month to do that, if you do search for smg design it should still be around the top of the searches.
pps they said my twitter profile was worth 2,500 bucks but no one offered me that for it ha ha
I get a few visitors from twitter. The key is to use hashtags so that when someone searches on that subject it will come up.
For example, if I have a hub on music I put #music after my link, or a hub on environmental topics I put #green or #enviro.
well this is a new one for me! I learn something every time I'm on here!
This a new info to me, thanx for sharing.
did you wait until you had a large collection before joining twitter? Is twitter via phone only (with phone charges) or can it be done ?using internet?
It does - I Tweet Hubs and Hubs of others on Twitter but not to the point where it gets on people's nerves.
It's nice to Tweet in between and be social, but it does bring traffic. Sometimes I schedule them on Hootsuite to Tweet maybe 6 Hubs. One in every hour or One every two hours.
You've got nothing to lose for trying.
From time to time, I send tweets out regarding my hubs, but don't do it too regularly. However, I do get a little bit of traffic to my life hubs.
Twitter is good for getting your hubs indexed quickly as the googlebots live on there.
Not sure twitter traffic buys things or clicks on ads though
Twitter does bring in traffic, but I tend to think that users are tech savvy therefore have 'ad blindness' whereby they never convert to clicks . . .
I think twitter works at getting a few hits, but conversions are thin pickins.
I think it will because microblogging is all the rage now especially among young people. Twitter seems to have evolved into more than just a social comment network. Real relationships are being formed and built. cheers. Amanda. (Australia).
if done properly, Twitter promotion is the best site to bring traffic..
I think twits bring traffic actually if people who read it will be interested in your hub
i've been using twitter since 2006. i have built up a strong 10k of followers in that time about technology and my blog - http://blog.me.dm has over 100k nearly of visitors in three months so i'm really pleased about the progress of that. i've just discovered hubpages and i'm keen to start blogging more using posterous and hubpages.
i love posterous for autoposting to all my sites around the web and now that i have found hubpages am hoping that i can make some small amounts of money from adwords each month just to pay a few of my hosting bills.

Hello. I've been researching Twitter recently but a lot of the information I've found seems to be dated several years ago already so I'd like to ask for some recent information. Is Twitter still a good site for backlinks and traffic? Is it really effective? Does it work?How many times a day should...

I've noticed something kinda weird, after I write something, I put it on Facebook, because I've worked hard on it, and letting everyone I know that I have written a new hub. Do they or even even disliked it or leave encouraging words? Nope...nothing....zip, zero. I'm not sure if they know...

Having been on HP now for more than four years while kinda' inactive for the last two I am looking more closely. I have cleaned up my portfolio from over 100 hubs with low views to now about 10. I had a lean of writing more for self than as a business venture seeking a niche. Now, I am looking more...
