Want more traffic to your website from Twitter?

Not sure what to do to make that happen?

Here are three quick & easy ways to drive more traffic from Twitter back to your blog.

…plus one bonus tip that isn’t quick but is totally worth the time.

1.  Twitter Tools

Install and use the Twitter Tools plugin — it will let you set your new blog posts to tweet as soon as they’re publishing, including the #hashtags of your choice.

2. Tweet Old Post

Install and configure Tweet Old Post.  You can choose how far back in your archives this plugin looks, and how often it tweets.  It will randomly send out tweets based on those settings.  Cool way to bring life and traffic back to the great posts you’ve written in the past.

3. Tweet Buttons

Let your readers help send traffic your way!  Give them an easy way to share your posts on Twitter — like the TweetMeme button, or another social sharing plugin.

 Bonus Tip…

Take some time and create a set of Twitter #hashtag tips that you can schedule each month to share with your followers.  Here’s how to do it: http://michelleshaeffer.com/build-a-following-on-twitter-with-hashtag-tips/2010/08/06/
