WARNING: One of my best traffic tips ahead. Proceed with action.
A beautiful traffic triangle
Most people come online and then chase after traffic. Don’t do what most people do because most people are broke. One of the first things you to quickly learn online is to stop chasing after traffic. What you want to do instead is find out where the traffic is going and get in front of it.
I know that is easy to say. So let’s put some hands and feet on that notion right now.
When you have each new article published on the article directory I use the most, when your account is set up correctly, an automatic New Article Update is sent to your Twitter account and published. And then, again, when it is set up correctly, that Tweet will also appear as an update on your LinkedIn profile.
You take one action and get 3 powerful traffic results.
Alexa.com is a site that ranks traffic online. The lower the number (closest to one) the better. For example, Google is ranked number one.Twitter is 9th and LinkedIn is 16th. That’s getting in front of where the traffic is going by getting your information on 2 of the top ranked sites in the world!
How to do it
You’ll need a 3 different accounts, and best of all they are all free. You’ll need an account at EzineArticles, Twitter and LinkedIn. Go open those if you need to.
Now go into your EzineArticles account. Go to Profile Manager>Edit Author Bio>Twitter URL>and follow the directions to list your Twitter URL on your Expert Author Page and Authorize Access to Your Twitter Account.
Do this just once, and every time you publish a new article it will be automatically announced on Twitter.
Kinda cool, huh? But don’t stop there…
Go to your LinkedIn account. Find your name in the upper right hand corner. Click on it and go to Settings>Manage Your Twitter Settings>Add Twitter Account
Set this up just once and you have set up a beautiful traffic triangle forever. Now every time you publish a new article it will be automatically announced on your Twitter stream and on your LinkedIn stream. Just as this article will be when it is published.
