Integrating WordPress With Twitter And Apply Twitter Magic

Wow! Who would have thought that you could work from your WordPress Dashboard and connect with your Twitter account. But then again, the various plugins that are continuously made available makes it a breeze for business owners to work from their dashboard within WordPress. This is particularly useful as more and more small business owners are moving towards using WordPress due to the hands free functionality it offer them.

Most business people using WordPress know that it comes with thousands for plugin that cover a host of useful features. Luckily for everyone there are around 60 Twitter plugins that allow WordPress and Twitter to interact with one another. Ideally, you should look at the rating and how many ratings a particular plugin has.

Each plugin has a different functionality. Business owners need to determine what their need are to ensure they are using the right Twitter plugin. For instance, would need a plugin that would post your WordPress posts to Twitter? Or, would you prefer to use a plugin that will show all your tweets in WordPress? Generally, Twitter WordPress or Twitter Tools are good plugins to use.

Most of the plugins would need little more than your Twitter username and password, whereas other plugins would need to be configured which are easy to achieve as you only need to follow certain instructions to get it right. Once achieved, you will have your Twitter Account and WordPress talking to each other.

Twitter Magic and SEO

What is more is that Twitter.com gets indexed like any other website would. But, it gets even better! Your website will get much quicker attention should you link to them from within your tweets. Unfortunately, there is a downside to this. Unknown to you some of your competitors might follow you too which will enable them to see what products or services you are displaying.

For this reason, you want to have a separate Twitter account with no followers so that you can bring your websites under the attention of the Search Engines for your business to benefit from SEO benefits. Ensure that the tweets you post contain your URL and some targeted keywords around it. You should take care to write as naturally as possible as that is what the Search Engines will be looking for from Twitter.

In doing this you take advantage of LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing) that would look for a related keyword around the link you posted. At the end of the day you want to make money with Twitter so your ultimate mission should be to build your list of followers and direct them to your blog or site where you can eventually monetize your list.

Twitter is therefore seen as a social marketing platform that takes a subtle approach to marketing. You cannot make use of aggressive marketing like you would if you were making use of a landing page or squeeze page. Business people have a good chance of being successful when they are active on Twitter, tweet daily, maintain a professional approach, and ensure that at least 80% of their tweets are related to their Niche.
