In this article I am going to share with you a cool tip on how your blog posts gets easily retweeted by your readers and followers. You already know that the more your blog posts are being retweeted, the more you will gain exposure and the more traffic you will get which means more leads and more sales for your online business. But the question is how do you make it easy for your readers and followers to retweet your blog posts?
There are 2 easy ways actually. One is to install a plugin called DiggDigg and the other one is to install a plugin called Twitter @Anywhere Plus.
1. DiggDigg – is an All-in-One social buttons. It is a WordPress plugin, which is used to integrate following social voted buttons :
Facebook Share / Like
Google Buzz buttons
The web blend
You can set this up to show the social buttons to float on the left side of your blog. I myself prefer the floating display than the normal display because your readers can see it wherever they are on your blog post. In normal display, your social buttons are just displayed at the top of your article so when your readers browse at the bottom of your article, those social buttons can’t be seen anymore. Which means harder for your readers and followers to retweet your blog post. To see an example of how this floating thing looks like at the left side of my blog post, click here.
2. Twitter @ Anywhere Plus – this plugin allows you to easily add Twitter @ Anywhere to your blog, enabling the @ Anywhere features. In order to use @ Anywhere, you must first register your blog as an @ Anywhere application to get a Twitter API key (Consumer key). You can do so at the following URL here. This plugin is so easy to set up. Once you have installed it on your blog, just go to the settings page and set it up with your twitter username and the rest are just basic. Although simple, this plugin can give your blog more power because your readers can now easily retweet your blogpost which drives more exposure to your blog posts and articles. To see an example of how this plugin looks like when activated on your blog, click here and browse at the bottom of the post.
Just to reiterate, that it is easier for your readers and followers to retweet your blog posts if your social buttons are easy to find and are very visible. Best way to do this is to install a plugin called DiggDigg and Twitter @ Anywhere Plus.
