Have you tried using Twitter? How do you find it? Is it effective for your site's promotion?
Yes it is highly effective in marketing campaign of a website. I have found it by accident. Some people are even saying that Google is working hard to acquire it.
There was another thread about Twitter a couple of weeks ago. Not got around to joining yet.
Any tips on using to promote a website would be appreciated
I just recently joined on Twitter but I don't use it regularly... I think I should be more active on this because I heard from other people that they find this effective for driving traffic to their site.
Are there any idiot guides to using twitter for promotion, maybe I'm just an old git, but I just don't get twitter
Same to me because I have to a lot of work single-handedly that I rarely get chance to increase my popularity in Twitter.
I think with Twitter you either get it or you don't. I'm in the latter.
However, I do use Twitter accounts to publish new posts from my Wordpress sites for SEO and backlinks.
2 examples : Twitter / AlderDomains and Twitter / seanhorton
Gets the news out nice and quick as you get more people following you.
Sean are those just updates that you've done on your profile?
Most of my Twitter entries are automatic feeds/posts from Wordpress sites I run. I use TwitPress, nice and simple.
Makes Tweeting for SEO easy. Each time you make a new post your associated Twitter account is updated. I have a few for each website.
I have a twitter account but that's as far as I've got so far. I believe it's no follow so it's no good for seo and for my home site (web designer) I'm interested in genuine sales enquiries rather than casual traffic. However, I've started doing squidoo lenses and can see that - if I ever have the time to build up a following - Twitter would drive traffic to the lenses and therefore increase money made by each lens.
