TweepML Share Groups Of Tweeps

A while ago “link trains” were very popular. They were used to gain links for Technorati as well as try to build links to get a Google PR. I wrote about the effect link trains can have on your blog, and now they are pretty much non-existent.

With everything moving into social media, a Twitter or Facebook idea like this could be very beneficial.

TweepML Share Twitter Lists

TweepML

I haven’t visited the importance of Twitter yet, but I did give some tips on Facebook and how you can increase traffic with Facebook fan pages. However I’ve recently explored Twitter. For me personally it’s not as successful because their are no images to pull you in. But for others, Twitter is huge!

A great thing I found was TweepML, where you can add Twitter user names to a list and make it easy for people to “follow” them.

I was lucky enough to get on the MomDot Mafia list, which is a list of great mom (and dad) bloggers. Within 48 hours I was able to gain 100 new followers.

Another TweepML list I used was a follow-back list. About 250 people are on the list, so I added them all and most of them followed me back.

There are tons of lists you can find for any topic.


Great Bloggers List

I wanted to make my own group strictly for blogger’s. I currently don’t do too much with Twitter on my “blogger” Twitter, so I thought this would be a good way to get started!

If you are a blogger and want to be added to our list please visit:  Great Bloggers to Follow on Twitter.

There you can “suggest” your Twitter username and I will add it. After you do that please follow everyone on the list.

You can share your list with your Twitter or Facebook fans, as well as those on your blog!

    I’ve been using Twitter to generate some traffic through people retweeting my links, but I find that this traffic is very hit-and-run, especially people who are following me just because I am following them. Facebook traffic is much more likely to get you visitors who come back, so prioritizing your “Share on Facebook” links is probably more effective.

    This sounds like a good way to gain targeted followers but I question how many people on the follow-back list will actually read your tweets.

    Facebook gets more visitors simply for the images I think on my Free Samples fan page. Twitter is a bit less.

    @marcus – Yes I’m worried about that too, however it’s great to get some initial followers/following. Sometimes people just go through and follow friends of followers as well (if that makes sense). Couldn’t hurt and you can always unfollow them if you don’t like their tweets.

    I hate how technorati went down! Buying my own domain was hard enough a hit for me then that!

    Hey Lisa, thanks for stopping by, I just visited your blog.

    After a while I didn’t put too much stock into Technorati, it wasn’t worth worrying about.

    I’ve tried generating traffic with twitter but found that all I was doing was wasting large amounts of time. I haven’t been able to get anything going with any social site. The little bit of traffic I have been able to generate was not at all targeted.

    It may work for some, but it definitely doesn’t work for me.

    I’ve only tried twitter. I’m doing fairly well with good SEO and article marketing now. I’m not ready to try any other social media right now.

    I’m one of those people who couldn’t really get into using Twitter.

    I probably should have tried a bit harder because of all the good things I’ve heard about it and traffic generation, but I guess I am doing fine as is.
