Gone are the days when you had only limited platform to generate backlinks. These sites are  promoting global connectivity. There are loads of microblogging sites present their, for the multiple purpose include brand awareness, personal interaction with customers, family and friends and also for the blogging promotion. Microblog can broadcast 140 characters elements of contents, images and video links.

images (4)When I had no address of blogosphere I was unfamiliar with all these terms. But now as I am little upgraded therefore feel that I should share my knowledge with the newbies. In blogosphere regular traffic and good backlinks is not an easy task via social media sites only. Consequently you have to indulge in elaborating medium of exposure in the form of microblogging sites.

Hey all bloggers, are you struggling to grab the attention of more readers? You craft attention-grabbing headlines. Also sharing your links on Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, Stumbleupon etc. You add keywords to the description, use hashtags if they are relevant even not getting traffic from all sources.

Microblogging sites helps in expanding your Direct traffic, Referral Traffic and Organic Traffic without spending penny. Lets take a note how it helps:

  • Enlarge online connectivity.
  • Turn your visitors into buyers.
  • Boost your page rank in Google.
  • Generate key contacts with fellow bloggers.
  • Good crawl frequency, valued by search engine.

Here I am presenting top 9 enlisted microblogging sites:

1. Twitter (Alexa Rank: 10, Page Rank:10)

Twitter is social a media platform. It is only a spectacular tool for gaining new thoughts or insight, but also sharing it. I know the larger segment of population is familiar with Twitter. Its capacity of loading 140 characters in text form and can also post pictures or videos many times, during the day but make sure it is unique and spam-free. It is so helpful in sharing your links to generate traffic and quality backlinks.

2. Tumblr (Alexa Rank: 25, Page Rank: 8)

A good free microblogging sites to use to write a short note about an upcoming and current blog post. It strengthens and extend your existing network of trusted contacts. Tumblr allows users to edit their blogs theme HTML coding to control the appearance of their blog.

3. Meetme ( Alexa rank: 1281, Page Rank: 5)

Actually meetme.com is more acknowledged as a dating site. It is almost like facebook. This site is generally for finding their love mates but in reality it does not happen everytime. You don’t see most of the bloggers usually in this website for the promotion.

microblog4. Plurk (Alexa Rank: 1721, Page Rank: 7)

Plurk is a breakthrough in blogging. Plurk allows you 140 per post. For bloggers its easier to share their link of the post to get healthy backlinks. Uploading images and video is quick and easy option. This microblogging site is a good means to promote your blog for getting maximum traffic.

7. Friendfeed (Alexa Rank: 1520, Page Rank:8 )

Friendfeed is picking its height day by day. In case of friendfeed, its best to subscribe to people you know.

Plerb is also one of the popular social microblogging community.

There don’t seems to be many users on the network, but as it becomes more popular, it is sure to rise. There is no video or audio sharing, you can share stuff in words.

Final words:

All the above micoblogging sites are good exercise for generating backlinks to our content pages and boost them to rank better in Google. In order to get targeted visitors, you need to have a seasoned SEO professional behind you apart from these sources of traffic and backlinks. Lastly you have to develop skill of  frequent changes in search engine algorithm and adjust your website according to the webmaster guidelines.

      1. Twitter and Tumbrl are my favorite ones. Once I tried Plurk but I think it was in Japanese or Chines so I couldn’t understand how I can get traffic back to my site from there. Recently I checked it again and saw it was translated into English, which is awesome, so I do get a lot of traffic to my sites from there. Your list is so cool, I totally agree with this chart.
