You’ve taken the time to write a great blog post, and now you’ve got to let people know about it so they can benefit from your words of wisdom! Let’s add in a little automation to simplify your content syndication and boost your blog traffic!
The secret to doing this is setting up a free twitterfeed account! A few minutes to setting it up can save you hours every month and help you automatically spread the word about your content to your friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter!
Here’s How to Set Up TwitterFeed to Simplify Your Content Syndication and Boost Your Blog Traffic:
- Go to TwitterFeed and set up a free account
- Click create a new feed (If you don’t know your blog’s RSS Feed URL go to your blog and look for the RSS symbol. Right click and copy the link and paste it into the RSS Feed URL field in twitter feed)
- Click on Test RSS Feed to make sure it’s correct
- Click on Advanced Settings and set the frequency you want twitter feed to check your blog for updates
- Select the post link box. I like to use bit.ly to shorten my links because it’s got great tracking and is automatically set up on my tweetmeme button. You will need to enter your bit.ly user name and API key. You can find that by logging into your bit.ly account and clicking on “settings.” Copy and paste your API key into twitterfeed.
- Customize your account if you wish by including a post prefix or post suffix
- Link twitterfeed to the Facebook and Twitter accounts you want your blog post published on and click All Done!
It’s simple and effective and is one of the easiest ways to automate content sharing for your blog and generate some extra blog traffic!
Other benefits to content syndication that result in blog traffic:
Another great way to leverage twitterfeed to build your social media following (that I learned from clever marketer Matthew Neer) is to link the RSS feeds of your favorite bloggers to your twitterfeed account. That way you’re one of the very first people in social media to share the brand new content published by the trusted advisers in your niche! You’re sharing great content to your list as well as getting more blog traffic back to your site.
I also like to post my blog content to the Unified Tribe. This is a great resource that any blogger would benefit from, if they’re looking for more blog traffic through content syndication! It is a community of blog owners who are uniting together to help syndicate each other’s content. You can learn more about it by getting the social media wealth manifesto with free video training!
