If you're a medical (or health) blogger, then are you using Twitter to drive traffic to your blog? There's an easy (and free) way to import your RSS feed automatically into Twitter. Since I maintain 4 different blogs, I feed all those 4 RSS feeds into my Twitter account @DrJosephKim.
Allow me to introduce you to TwitterFeed. This lets you automatically "tweet" each of your blog posts and you can use bit.ly to shorten your URL and also monitor how many people click on each of your blog links.
So, there are my two tips:
- Use TwitterFeed to promote your blog posts via Twitter.
- Use bit.ly to monitor what types of posts are capturing readers.
