Simple "Share to Twitter" Widget that Helps Double-up your Blog Traffic

Share to Twitter Widget

Recently, we made a few changes in our blogger themes' "Share to Twitter widget" and since then, we have being noticing increasing traffic to the few blogs (in our watchlist) that have installed the optimized "share to Twitter" widget.


What Does the "Optimized Share to Twitter Widget" Do?

  1. The newly modified and Optimized "Share to Twitter" widget notifies the blog admins via twitter each time someone shares their blog post to Twitter using the Share to Twitter Widget.
  2. Additionally, the optimized Share to Twitter widget also embed the blog post labels as #hashtags in the sharing post each time someone shares the posts to Twitter.

As unbelievable as it may seem, these two (2) added functions are responsible for the traffic spike to these blogger blogs.


How Does this "Share to Twitter" Widget Create Traffic Spike to the Blogs?

Good question.


For a fact, we know that every blog has its own unique sets of visitors or readers. Even if it is just a few visitors each day.


Another fact is that; each of these visitors has his or her own social platforms where he or she mingles. And since these visitors mingle in these social platforms, each of them must have friends or groups with which they interact.


Now, supposing you publish a content on your blogger blog and one of your blog loyal readers checked the content. Luckily, he or she loves the post, he could share the post to one of the social platforms he uses. -hopefully, he shares the blog post to Twitter.


Point #1:

...hopefully, he shares the blog post to Twitter.

I supposed you already noted down the point #1 from above?


Good.


And here are some other facts that should be noted;

Each time your readers share your blog post to Twitter; that particular blog post is exposed to:

  1. The Twitter followers and friends of the person who shared the post.
  2. Users searching for the #hashtags embedded in the blog post (that was shared to twitter) on twitter.
  3. Users following the #hashtags embedded in the blog post (shared to twitter) on Twitter Trends
  4. People searching for the #hashtags embedded in the blog post (that was shared to twitter) from search engines e.g Google, Bing, Baidu etc.

Point #2 is made.

Note down the listed group of points from above.


Now, let us assume twenty (20) readers of that same post share the post in a day, they expose that post to the same number of people that falls in the categories outlined (in the listed points) above at twenty (20) different times that day alone.


Do you now get the gist?


This simple share to twitter widget simply duplicates your blogger blog traffic.

Why Should You Install this "Share to Twitter" Widget?

#1. Speed:

Unlike when you are using AddThis, ShareThis or other similar services that offer your blog similar functionality hence extending your blog's load time, this Share to Twitter widget does not alter your blog speed in any way.

What if I Want to Style the "Share to Twitter" Widget to Fit Well in My Blog?

Yes. I thought as much as it is necessary to style any share widget in a manner that allows it attract higher attention and clicks from the viewers and readers alike.


But unfortunately, before I can be able to provide an accurate set of codes and instructions for styling your blog social sharing widget, I need to know;

  1. Which sharing widget you are currently using on your blog.
  2. Your current blogger template. -this is only necessary in deciding the best alignment for better output.

Unless those points forelisted are made known, it is impossible to provide an accurate sets of codes for styling your entire share widget or just your share to Twitter widget.


But of course, if you know a bit of CSS and JavaScript (or you can research), you should be able to come up with a strikingly beautiful design set that gives better results in terms of social share volumes in your blog social sharing widget.
