A Look Behind The Big Data Twitter Curtain Thanks To A Wizard

A Look Behind The Big Data Twitter Curtain Thanks To A Wizard | BI Revolution | Scoop.it

What factors go into determining how many Twitter followers you gain (and lose) each day? I analyzed thousands of accounts to find the answer.

 

Key takeaways

 

The types of content you tweet have significant impacts on attracting and keeping followers.Hashtags probably aren't dead.Each tweet that includes an image, has a hashtag, is a retweet, or mentions someone associates with 2-6% more daily followers.


Just as it does with Rand, your account will likely have individualized factors that move the needle for you.You can explore these via Excel! Check your Followerwonk account for a complimentary spreadsheet of your Twitter activity.Don't forget to follow me @petebray so that I can test whether this blog post significantly moves my follower count! :) And let me know what you uncover.

Hashtags werden in dem Maße problematisch, in welchem das Hashtag Spamming weiter zunimmt. Insbesondere Instagram ist hier ein Treiber dieser unguten Entwicklung und Crossposting.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Topsy Secret Weapon
Topsy is one of my favorite social media weapons. With Google Analytics giving your social media the double whammy between 50% or more of Not Provided data and how poor Google is with reporting social media due to friends of friends sharing you must have a better analytics options for social.

Topsy does more than drink from the Twitter firehouse. Topsy is the best place to know the total reach of your Tweets, blog posts and comments. Topsy alerts can watch your brand and help with Online Reputation Management (ORM).

Best part of all is you can get a lot of return from Topsy before you spend a dime.

5 Ways To Avoid The Online Competition Trap w/ Great @MarkTraphagen Note

5 Ways To Avoid The Online Competition Trap w/ Great @MarkTraphagen Note | BI Revolution | Scoop.it

5 Ways To Avoid The Online Competition Trap
Never ceases to amaze me. Team +Curagami sees the Hatfields and McCoys squared off and fighting tooth and nail over nothing all the time. Here are 5 ways to avoid the Online Competition Trap (be sure to Read Mark Traphagen's excellent note in comments on the attached too):

* Use Google Adwords to discover REAL DEMAND for keywords (use exact an broad match too and if you really want to get depressed use "exact match" to see how few people are actually searching for that new widget you just created).
* Create something like our Curagami Keyword Efficiency Index (cKEI) to calculate where #blueoceans live (keywords or phrases with less competition but healthy search volume and YES these are getting harder and harder to find). Use "long tail" analysis to find these.
* Understand your "poker table stakes" keywords - words you have to have content for but won't win in this lifetime.
* Know what they are spending (use +SpyFu) and then SPEND DRAMATICALLY LESS because you've out thought them. One way to do that is look for a #contentmarketing "fighter pilot" in your space and toss them into your ecosystem (I did this with +Red Bull during my keynote to a group of #smbs at +FedEx conference and they found it eye opening to say the least). 
* Think about using new tools such as Curagami, tools that help create #community so you do LESS but win MORE hearts and minds. Would classify +Paper.li +Scoop.it and +Optimizely in this category of get more spend or do less tools.

Why Google Blocks All Keyword Referral Data and Why This Is Really Bad

Rand Fishkin talks about Google's motivation behind their encryption.

Via Robin Good
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

What a pain. Google is making it SO hard to know what is happening on our websites they are all but putting money in other metrics packages pockets. We used to be able to model when "not provided" was below 50%, but now that more people signin to G+ and stay signed in we's lost too much raw data. The super quants can still model, but the average analyst is now behind the eight ball.

I agree with one of the commentors on this post, that said, Google is doing this in response to the competition with FB et al. FB is making huge inroads in Googles once great monopoly.  You can still find keywords that will rank with reverse attack marketing and can learn about it here: http://www.reverse-attack-marketing.info

David Bennett's curator insight, October 11, 2013 6:34 AM

Quote from Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land: "

Publishers allow search engines to index their content, which is used by the search engines as the core content they can put lucrative ads around.


In return, search engines have provided traffic to publishers and data on how those publishers are found. That latter part of the ‘deal’ was unilaterally pulled by Google.”""
