Making Sense of Twitter Stats

I finally made sense of WordPress stats (more on that later) and now I am looking at Twitter Stats (Analytics). One assignment in the Blogging201 course was to pick a social media site that I would use to grow my blog. I wrote about that in this post But Am I Really That Sociable where I announced i would use Google+ to complete that. I decided to try Twitter instead because I get zero response from the post going to my Google+ account. Plus I cannot fine Google+ stats for the account.

I coordinated my Twitter page using the same background as this blog and included a different image from Cades Cove, TN. While I still do not get RTs (retweets), I have picked up a few followers from the Blogging201 class. And I had a few tweets tagged as Favorite.

The mom blogger at TinyExpats suggested tagging my Sunday blogvposts with #weekendbloghop and #sundayblogshare. I also tag the tweets on Sunday with those tags. At least I think I am doing that correctly because I am getting impression spikes. If not, perhaps someone can chime in a give me some “Twitter For Dummies” instruction on how to do this correctly.

This is what my Twitter Analytics page looks like.

WOW! I am blazing a trail on Twitter.  Perhaps there should be a Twitter101 course to help folks like me that just can’t get the hang of Tweeting

I am open to suggestions and recommendations from the Twitter experts out there.

Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.

  1. Jerry when I first got on Twitter I was confused by the hashtags and how to use them. I’d suggest you spend a few moments searching tags of interest like: #travel #campers #blogging #dogsoftwitter if you take a look around at what others are posting with these hashtags then you might find how best to tag your own to peak interest. Cheers

  2. Thanks for the hashtag ideas. This is such an overwhelming world — trying to get through it one blog at a time!

  3. I didn’t even know twitter had stats Jerry! Guess I’ll have to give it a look. And I can’t figure out google at all! ~Elle
