And in less than a year. I have been blogging for 11 months, and just hit a quarter million page views.
...and no thanks to twitter.
You see, I analyze my data. Most of my pageviews come from my following audience, google searches, and stumbleupon (in that order).
#4 on my referring sites list? Networkedblogs.com, at 0.32%. Twitter? It's not even showing up in my top sites...
And I tweet a lot.
I even belong to a few sites that amplify my tweets, and make my twitter look better to others, in hopes of better blog exposure.
I use Klout. My current score is 48, which is supposed to be decent.
I also use Triberr:
Triberr is a tweet amplification tool for bloggers. I get in a tribe (network of other bloggers) and with every post, they tweet my link to their followers (and I do the same). This results in more tweets and more mentions, but not a lot of page views.
So, am I doing something wrong, or is twitter just a waste of time?
And if you stumble, follow me here. You scratch my back, I scratch yours, capice?
What social media sites do you use? Which ones are successful and which ones are a waste of time?
Does twitter work for you?? Facebook? Google+? If so, tell me what you're doing, because they're not working for me...
