How Many Visitors Do You Get Per Day from Twitter to Your Blog?

Q: I thought that I would take time to write a short post and answer this question for the curious internet users out there. The question: how many hits to your blog does a given number of followers on Twitter generate? For example, if I have 5,000 followers on Twitter and update my blog regularly, how many visits can I expect per day from my Twitter followers.

A: The long answer is that it depends on a lot of factors. The short answer is that, in my case, I get about 1 hit per day per 1000 followers.

Of course, I'm probably not as interactive on Twitter as I should be. My strategy for gaining new followers is to follow back everyone who follows me and to periodically follow a few hundred users per day (and unfollow anyone who doesn't follow me back). If I happen to make a friend or have a real conversation in there somewhere, so much the better.

If you take a more interactive approach and engage your Twitter followers more, I'm sure that you'll generate more visits for your blog from Twitter. At the same time, Twitters really is a numbers game at a certain level. Just because you add someone with similar interests on Twitter to you doesn't mean that they will actually interact with you. So, the more people you add, the better.

  1. Sadly, I honestly wish I had the time that you have to dedicate to your blog.

    How tiring is it? But you must feel a sense of accomplishment once you've done it all. I know I do.

    Uh, do you have the girl in pink's Twitter account?

  2. Um, the girl, yeah . . . I wish that I did.

    See, every good blog entry needs three things, I always say: something to make you smile, something to make you think, and a pretty girl.

    At least I have one out of the three here -- hopefully all three though!

    Thanks for the compliment though :)
