What if every reader at your blog Tweeted your articles ? Would be fun and loads of traffic right ? Although every single reader tweeting your articles seems like a too good to be true idea, it would definitely help even if a quarter of them did.
Tweeting articles has become extremely easy these days, after all you have your Twitter client / Browser plugin ready all the time right ? But how about genuine readers on your blog ? Do they always tweet your articles by taking the pain of copy pasting the title and url ? I doubt if all of them do.
Adding a “Tweet this” button looks like a better idea here. It gives people a one-click solution to show their love to you, and takes the pain of copy pasting urls, off their shoulders.
Traffic to DSB have increased significantly after I added the Tweetmeme buttons you see on the top right of the article.
And the good thing is that I can track those people on Twitter easily (Who re-tweets from DSB) as they all come as retweets to me. I make sure that I follow all those who re-tweet articles from DSB, its nice to see it pop up from different parts of the world.
