  1. I often though about doing this but was not sure what to write about myself. Landing Pages are Really important to get massive social networking followers.Thanks for the Tips on how to go about creating a twitter landing page I will not forget to retweet.

  2. How about displaying a more intrusive “follow me” link if the user comes from Twitter?


    if (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERRER'], 'twitter.com') !== false) {
    // show follow me button
    }

    Never tried it before as I’ve never put any effort into blogging, but could be quite an interesting experiment.

    1. That’s an interesting idea but I don’t know whether it would be good or not – I don’t like aggressive promotions, although I do totally understand that they can be quite effective – even if I don’t like them myself πŸ™‚

  3. Nice tips Ben, the reason I have been following you because of tim thumb and other wordpress thing πŸ™‚ good work and it was very effective.

    Another tip is trying to put beautiful girl picture on twitter avatar.. It’ll work πŸ™‚ lol..

  4. I was expecting this post to be about how to join one of those “you follow me and I follow you” lists.

    I’ve never thought of a landing page before. But if it only takes 10 minutes to set up then it must surely be worth a quick go. I’ll give it a month and see what happens. πŸ™‚

    1. I can’t see why those sorts of posts would work – they could potentially create large numbers but people won’t actually be interested in what you’re saying. If you make it clear what you do and why then your audience will be a lot more targetted and a lot more likely to listen to, and be interested in, the things you say.

    1. And you’re basing this on what? It clearly does, I’ve even shown the proof in the graph above. Not sure how you can argue with that?

  6. Thanks for the tip. I will try to implement it.
    But the question is aren’t you already famous and with wpadvent it will really shoot up.
    Like to know how much more you got after wpadvent.

  7. Another possible reason for getting more followers is the fact you “promote” Twitter by including it as a field one can fill out in this here comment form. I like that *a lot*! People who may find a post by you via a search engine, besides seeing the normal “follow me” icons, they may also notice the Twitter icons next to the comments’ authors’ names as well.

    I think I’m going to do some tweaking and see if I can add this feature to a few themes.

  8. Hey Ben, I found this to be excellent advice which I’m going to put to use. I crossed the 2000 follower mark but it seems that I’ve hit a wall and cant seem to get past it right now. Your graph pretty much proves your point so thanks for the tip.
