There Are Only 4 Ways To Get Traffic From Twitter | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Can you believe that back in the days bloggers used to rely on Google as their primary source of traffic?

 

They launched new blogs, published lots of articles and waited patiently for people to find these articles in Google.

 

Today with sites like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit and others we can get a flood of traffic to our blog on the very same day that the first article went live!

 

In this article you can find out four different ways to get traffic from Twitter. And those are the only ways.
