The Best Ways To Use Twitter To Increase Your Traffic

best times to tweet

I was reading this article on Twitter tips and found it to be quite helpful. Even though Twitter may seem simple at just 140 characters, it has a much higher learning curve than you would think.

Blow Up Your Following With Twitter

This blog does not strictly consist of advice on search engine optimization. As many of us and know since the advent of “social signals.” I was reading the blog I put a link to below, test it, and lo and behold I had the same results.

A good idea doesn’t have to be an original concept to be one that works, but in this simple strategy of scheduling your tweets in, you can increase the size of your Twitter audience and traffic to your site. Another benefit is you can schedule your tweets at times of day where the most people will see them.

Depending upon the number of people you follow on Twitter your Twitter timeline might move pretty fast, and it’s easy to miss a tweet. But if you use buffered to hit at primetime you have a lot higher chance of getting your message out.

Here’s the method I adopted:

  1. Take 20 blog posts I’d written
  2. For each blog post, write three unique tweets (60 tweets total)
  3. Add these tweets to Buffer, scheduling 2x per day for 30 days

Here are the charts for the major time zones in Europe and Africa.

(Note: The London (GMT) time zone used to be the default time zone for new Buffer users, so our data for GMT is not as clean as we would like it to be. We’ve omitted any takeaways for GMT from the research results here.)

I was originally suspicious of Buffer APP as a way of stealing my hard-earned traffic, but now I have found it to be another useful tool in my arsenal of social media.
