How I Got 3000 Visitors from a Single Tweet by a Power User

Last week, I got 3,000 visitors from just a SINGLE tweet by a power user. Wow, can you imagine the power of that single tweet?

Here’s how it happened

spikestats

I woke up one morning to check my statistics… WHAT? I got 3000 visitors in one day? Cool!

I then hurriedly scanned my analytics to find out what was causing the huge spike in traffic.

I  discovered that a twitter power user, Jon Winokur @AdvicetoWriters, tweeted my blog post called 9 Confusing Confusions in English Grammar, which I published back in November 2010.

Here’s the tweet

advicetowriterstweet

When Jon tweeted my blog post, the snowball effect happened. His followers saw his tweet and retweeted it, and their followers saw their retweets and retweeted too; ultimately his tweet reached his followers’ followers’ followers. Get it? 😛

I checked my stats again to analyze the visitors three days since the tweet.

I checked how long these visitors spent on my page. Wow, the average time they spent reading my post was about 7:00 minutes! Not bad! 🙂

contentanalysis

What we can learn from this

i. Targeted content

Now, it wasn’t just some power user who tweeted that post. It was a power user who solely focuses on writing advice—Jon (@AdvicetoWriters).

ii. Real followers

Jon has more than 60,000 followers (and has been listed over 4,000 times), and he is only following about 800 people!—which means his followers don’t auto-reciprocate or something, but they genuinely follow him because he gives top-notch advice for writers.

Maybe that’s why his tweets get a lot of attention and he is very influential.

iii. Some numbers

Seeing the stats of his bit.ly link, Jon’s link was retweeted 68 times, and it received 3,154 clicks! That means that tweet to his 60,000 followers resulted in about 3,000 clicks, about 5%.

That’s not bad actually. Not everyone who has 100,000’s of followers can achieve that! One time a person with more than 100,000 followers tweeted a good post of one of my friends, but he told me nothing much happened.

iv. Quality content

That post I wrote about confusions in English grammar was not easy to write.

It took me like a whole week to write, revise, proofread, and repeat. And 3 months to learn about grammar in school. But ultimately, quality content brings a lot of benefit to your blog, so it’s worth the hard work writing it. 🙂


And THAT’s how much a tweet from a power user is worth! It’s always nice to occasionally get a spike in traffic (thanks a lot, Jon @AdvicetoWriters; I appreciate it!).

    Congrats on that! I’ve experienced something similar, so I can relate. In 2007 I awoke and checked my stats to see 18-thousand hits???????? I had accidentally posted about someone and something two months earlier – the story then suddenly made national news, and I was the only thing on the internet (for about 5 hours) that had anything on topic!

    Nice feeling. Rare occurance! It would be nice if we had magic dust we could sprinkle on our keyboards and make everything

      Woooow, your story made national news? That’s AWESOME! 😀 It must be a really happy experience for you. But the thing is there is no magic dust. 😛

      Thanks, you attentive mathematical whiz! Corrected. I must have forgotten to convert the decimal into percentage, and ended up percentagizing the decimal. Thanks for the math lesson. =)

    Gloson , To be a good blogger one has to face different situations. Some time traffic is high and some time its low. But good knowledge of handling traffic can increase your blog popularity with a little effort. Few months ago one of my post got discovered by StumbleUpon user , the traffic was 3k-4k per day for around 5-7 days. Then the traffic started decreasing then I thought I have to implement some experience , So placed widgets of blog networks traffic exchange. Which doubled m traffic and got the same post popular on an another social bookmarking site.

      Hi! Wow, thanks for sharing your experience. 3k-4k per day? You serious? That means in about a week you’ve received approx. 21,000 visitors. That’s amazing! 🙂

    Yes Gloson, its only the quality that matters. I checked your that article long back and I must say, this is one of the best article and that is the reason jon (@AdvicetoWriters) tweeted on his quality twitter account which resulted in very heavy traffic.

    Hi Gloson, first time commenting on the blog. I am absolutely taken back by how well you write for such a young man. It’s incredibly impressive. And that is one nice traffic spike 🙂

    I once had something re-tweeted by someone with influence on twitter and its awesome. The domino effect is pretty cool where people re-tweet the power users tweet.

    Anyway, great post. Hopefully i will comment some more on the blog in the future.

    A really interesting case study. I’ve just been reading Malcolm Gladwells work on “the power of the maven” and this is his principle in practice.

    Find the key influencers in any market is a great way to switch on visibility. A lesson for us all, that working hard at developing one contact – the right contact can be a million times (or 3000 times!) more effective than a scattergun approach!

    Congratulations on having 3,000+ pageviews. I haven’t experience of being re-tweeted by other twitter account. I just hope that some people could re-tweet my tweets too. Anyway, I realize how much a re-tweet could contribute so much in increasing page views.

    Hi Gloson!

    Congrats on the Twitter success! Every once in a while we luck out when a power-user shares our content socially, but something you mentioned shows that it’s not *really* luck at all. You worked really hard on that post and polished it as much as you could, and invested quality time making it really solid. That counts for a lot, because as you said, power-users are influential because they only share content that’s worthwhile. Their reputations and social klout depend on it.

    So good job!

    Hello,

    I totally agree, Twitter, but not only, the social networks generally speaking are extraordinarly good. I remember, I posted a thing on a Facebook page and it brought me a lot of visitors, comments and likes. I didn’t got way too far with Twitter because I don’t got the hang of it already but, I will read a lot and learn about Twitter because I noticed it is a very strong tool. Thanks for sharing!

    better head over to twitter and get some real followers

    Hi Gloson

    What a nice surprise to wake up to all those visitors 🙂 I have had a couple of spikes in visitors, but they came from stumbleupon not from tweets. And people didn’t stay on my site for 7 minutes either.

    I remember that post and it was very well written. As English is my only language, I do tend to notice grammatical errors and spelling mistakes in posts. However, if the person has English as a second language it is understandable. No excuse for us English speakers though!

    Hope the schoolwork is going well. Have a great weekend Gloson. As always, an enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing with us. Much appreciated.

    Wow, that’s quite incredible. It really a case of being in the right place at the right time though and there’s not much that one can do to ensure that it happens, but I guess you need to be sure to capitalise on it if and when that does happen by going the extra mile to respond to everyone and making everyone feel welcome.

That’s only telling me that I’m doing something wrong, and that’s not taking a little more time to see whats going on here. 3,000 visit from a single tweet!

    This is a lesson is not about twitter or tweeting, it’s about writing good content. With all of the social media sites out there, getting a continues spike in traffic is a realistic goal. Keep writing content and it will spread. Keep up the good work.

    What I learned from this is you have to make your content worth tweeting. A Twitter power user might stumble on your blog and if found something of his interest then you might end up like our young friend Gloson. Cool post, thanks for sharing 🙂

    Unbelievable! I made some Twitter and Facebook campaigns myself, but I can tell you I never got such a huge traffic just because of one single post.

    I agree with you about having quality content, real and targeted followers, but I also think there’s some pure luck that made all the things rollin’

    Anyway congratulations for your achievement! Hope I’ll get traffic like that sometimes too:D

    Nice analytic skills for a 13 year old. Don’t mean to sound condescending, it’s just that few can digg up information and understand stats like you do at your age.

    Oh, yeah, and the post deserved to be retweeted by a power users. Keep it up with posting quality articles and I’m sure more power users will tweet your posts.

    Hi Gloson,
    this is a great and inspiring story. I looked at your article and I have to say it is very informative and very entertaining at the same time. I especially like this part of the title “confusing confusions”. Haha. BTW, have you ever thought of learning German? This would be a really treat for you especially in terms of nouns, pronouns, subjects and objects. Have fun!

    First off I have to say, I started reading your blog and I was impressed by the content, then my eyes wondered over to the right side and I was blown away by your age. I just hope my 4 children are as well written as you are when they reach the teen years.

    Secondly, congrats on the tweet. Did you pick up any twitter followers from the exposure?

        Interesting. I once wrote an article on one of my blogs relating to Windows 7, and it was was retweeted by Windows (http://twitter.com/#!/Windows / 276,000 followers) and I noticed that most of the visitors I got from that RT were apparently bots (or so it seemed). Google Analytics showed those visitors from the RT only accessed my article for under 5 seconds, which led me to believe they were nothing but bots. 🙁

        It’s a reason why I really don’t use Twitter anymore, it’s becoming more bots than actual people.

        Granted in your case it may have been different, seeing as how the person that tweeted to you was human and not a company or company product.

          Hi Daniel,

          Whoa, you got retweeted by Windows. That’s big! =)

          Oh dear, 5 seconds only? Are you sure you’ve read your statistics correctly? Make sure you are on the statistics of THAT page alone. And then see the average time on page. =)

          Yeah, Twitter are getting filled up with bots; that’s why we need HUMAN followers. =) We need humans followers that really follow, and not bots, and we need to think of our own ideas to get human followers. Agree? 🙂

    I had a similar experience and was truly amazed at some of the weight some of these people have in the online world.

    It was amazing to watch as 1 tweet just snowballed into thousands of visitors, retweets and much much more.

    Now if we can only “rinse and repeat” or build our own social influence like that we’d be set and have some real authority! 🙂

    Hi glosson,thats the power of twitter right? but i don’t thinks so because it depends on quality content you had, if your content is bad – no matter how many your follower are – it’ll be ignored but if it’s good and have quality, it’ll will explode your visitor. Good for you glosson and keep write quality content

    I just read the blog post on grammar- good job! Content is definitely king in the blogging industry. Instead of focusing on schemes to get traffic faster, the best thing to do is focus on generating quality content first. Had your post been haphazardly made, the mentioned twitter power user would never had tweeted it.

One stumbler shared my blogpost with his friends and in next 16 hours my blog traffic was almost doubled but I don’t believe in such traffic because I am not a power user lol. But these power users make nice fortune for sure.

    Your experience with Twitter is similar to an experience I had with Facebook. I had a post go somewhat viral after it was liked by a certain person on Facebook. Then their friends started liking it, and theirs and so on. It was really cool. The site traffic surged big time. The best part was that it was highly targeted traffic that I was able to profit from.

    It serves as a testament to the idea that it is actually worth putting in the effort to create link worthy blog posts.

    Wowwww… I never thought twitter can be this powerful, I guess the thing that got the readers attention on the tweet is the tittle of your post “9 Most Confusing confusions in English Grammar”. That’s really a great line and it sound very interesting which had made the users to check it. However the only thing that shocks me is the average time they spend on your post, 7mins an average? that’s not bad for an old post and i guess you really made a great post there. Congratulations. Thanks for sharing, i guess i need to follow more people on twitter to get more followers too.

Not the one the stinks though 🙂 However, reading your story reminded of great stuff that is very possible and that prevented me now by just laying low.

    You don’t know how much I’ve learned from that posts and I’m guilty that I made some mistakes indicated there and I do enjoy reading it, no wonder why you gained 3000 visitors in a day by just a tweet. He is truly powerful to tweet your post and the title contributed as well because they must wanted to know the most common grammar so they check it out.

    That really is extraordinary Gloson, and the best part about it is that this is a measurable result. 3000 visits from any source would be great, but this just shows how influential one person’s recommendation can be. We are all highly influenced by what others do and like and Twitter is a good example of this. Personally I can’t imagine how anyone can have 60,000 followers, unless they are a well known celebrity, but that seems to be the case here. Keep up the good work. Now i have to try to work out how to do the same thing myself……:-)

    vow,this is really cool,getting 3000 visitors from a single tweet is just like a dream.

  114. It’s clearly because of the power of the “power people whom you followed and the power of the people whose following him/you” exactly like a domino effect. Twitter is powerful right? Ofcourse! The success lies on the content and into the your followers. Great points!

    You hit the nail on the head when you say that quality content is the key – after all, it’s no good getting 3,000 visitors if there’s nothing on the page to keep them there for some time. You obviously went a great deal of effort to produce that blog post but boy did it pay off!

    That is a phenomenal result Gloson. I learned three important lessons from this:

    (1) The Internet provides all of us, no matter what our age or place of origin may be, with a voice to communicate to the world
    (2) Social Media propels word of mouth at lightning speed
    (3) Great content mixed with an element of curiosity work well at attracting visitors

    Impressive write-up Gloson! I actually searched your post and read it for more than 7 minutes! Probably, out of the 9, there are 2 grammar mistakes i often used. Now that i know, thanks to your post, i will never make the same mistake again. Twitter indeed is viral these days, it seems Jon is is a credible writer and trusted to endorse the best pieces found online. Great post by the way, hope you can share more on this topic!

    Hi Gloson, that’s truly inspiring to other internet marketers showing them the power of quality content. Whilst most people put all their efforts into marketing their site with content that offers no value it’s those that produce top quality content that will end up getting rewarded in such a way.

    A friend of mine once had a blog post tweeted by Alyssa Milano (sorry, I forget her @name) with similarly impressive results. It is amazing how many times some people get retweeted. I sure wish I could command that sort of attention – a power which I would only use to do good, naturally 😉
