Get a Overflow of Twitter Traffic the Easy Way

There are plenty of options that you can used to generate high amounts of traffic and I’m going to show you 12 simple techniques to repeat this.

1. Proceed with the Twitter Power Houses

 

All you have to do after you sign in is click “Find People” at the top of your page, then click on the tab “Browse Interests”. There you will find the who’s who of twitter, or easily put the accounts utilizing the most followers. Follow them and you’ll see your following begin to grow in return.

 

Keep in your mind however that Twitter has set up rules which you can’t follow considerably more users than you have followers; so only use this tool to help you get started.

 

2. Set up an Auto-Follow

 

You can accomplish this simply by using websites such as socialoomph.com or tweetadder.com. The very first link is free, but the second link has its own more features. However, if you are likely to use this feature alone, then I’d recommend the first link.

 

3. Sync your Facebook and Twitter Accounts

 

You need to repeat this so that any “tweets” you send out will be delivered to your Facebook page’s wall with a direct link to your Twitter account giving the user a choice to follow you. To be able to work on this you first need to login to both your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Twitter has an app that enables you to send your tweets to your Facebook page’s wall. Facebook also has an app that allows your page’s material delivered to twitter(I’d recommend using both so you can build both accounts simultaneously). That way anytime you send a tweet, the tweet is sent directly to your Facebook page’s wall and vice versa.

 

4. Post your Link Everywhere

 

Find forums and blogs that give you a chance to leave a hyperlink to your Twitter account. Be sure, however, that you leave useful feedback and comments to be able to not get in trouble for simply “spamming”

 

5. Have a “Follow Me” Button on your own Blog and Email Signature

 

Twitter makes it very easy to have a “follow me” button on your own blogs or websites by giving an official button code that goes straight to your twitter page; use this as much possible. Additionally, there are many websites to go to position a Twitter icon on your email signatures by simply Googling it.

 

6. Use #Hashtags

 

Using hashtags are easy. Whenever you choose to tweet something simply put a # at the word that you choose to tag. In that way anytime that word is typed into the Twitter search engine your name is almost certainly going to show up.

 

7. Blog about Twitter and Post a Link to your Profile

 

Another easy way to do this is to create a blog post, either on your own blog or someone else’s as a guest author, and then leave a hyperlink to your Twitter account with a good reason to follow you.

 

8. Become Charitable

 

Everyone is willing to adhere to one more person when they know by following that person who money is being donated to a charity right? Well that’s exactly what Tim Ferris did by donating $1 to the Red Cross for every new follower he got. Ferris ended with 5,000 new followers in 3 days!

 

9. Offer Specials, Discounts and Coupons

 

If you own a company or are affiliated to one to where you can offer special rates and coupons to your products or services, that gives people a good reason to adhere to you and keep coming back.

 

10. Give a Gift

 

Give a gift that is in high demand such as a $200 gift card to Amazon.com to virtually any new Twitter follower in the next week. It’s important to put a limited time frame on your offer in order to create a sense of urgency to follow you.

 

11. Get Promoted on Twitter

 

You are doing this by paying Twitter to be promoted either on a tweet which you sent out, a trend, or you can choose to simply promote your account at a fairly reasonable price.

 

12. Hold a Contest

 

An easy way to do this is to post a few questions that will demand individuals to answer and @mention or #hashtag you for all of Twitter to see, and pick a few winners out of it. Make sure also that the give away is an excellent prize that individuals will want to win.

Athlete Profile: Marion Jones

Marion Jones has won three Olympic gold medals. And yet most Americans know of her primarily as the track and filed athlete involved in the current BALCO doping scandal. How quickly the media forgets greatness, and how quickly the public judges. And yet Marion Jones has always been outspoken about not using illegal performance-enhancing drugs, and it may have been this outspokenness that has led to the current accusations. But in all likelyhood, we will never know the truth. However, I wanted to discuss some of the facts that have been shadowed in recent months.

In the 2000 Olympics, Marion Jones won gold in the 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, and 1600-meter relay, and bronze in the long jump and 400-meter relay. She came in looking for five gold medals, and despite falling short, she was thrilled to have been so successful – she was the first women to win five medals of any color at one Olympics.

Her trouble with drug tests occured early in her career when she failed to show up for a random drug test in high school. The letter informing her of the test never reached her. But after a four-year ban, years when she became a basketball star, including helping the University of North Caroline win a national title, she returned to the track. In addition, her then-husband, C.J. Hunter failed several tests before the 2000 Olympics. But Jones has never failed a drug test.

Jones has repeatedly denied using performance-enhancing drugs, and has been very outspoken in her denials. In fact, she testified against several people in the Bay-Area Laboratory Cooperative (BALCO) case, including the head of the lab, Victor Conte. Conte recently claimed that he not only provided Jones with steroids, he watched her inject them.

Jones gave birth in June 2003, and returned to the track in February of 2004, winning the 60-meter dash in the Milrose Games. But she failed to qualify for the 100-meter dash for the Olympics, and withdrew from the 200-meter dash. In 2004, the only events she competed in were the long jump and the 400-meter relay, but failed to medal.

Perhaps her poor performance was due to fatigue, both with having so recently given birth and having to constantly defend herself against allegations of drug use. Whatever the reason, I look forward to seeing her is Beijing in 2008.

If she is able to compete. Despite having never failed a test, the US Anti-Doping Agency is considering banning Jones. They considered banning her from the Athens Games, but decided to come to a decision afterwards. If they do ban her for any length of time, it will set an ugly precedent.

Women’s Tennis – And the winner is……..

(Results from the fourth round through to the finals for both men’s’ and women’s’ draw and also rankings as at June 8 listed below article)

The recipe for a tennis legend:

A couple of handfuls of power
A dash of on-court aggression
Dangerous double handed shot-making ability – angle, power, she’s got it all!
A mind-numbing at times, but often an intimidating and interesting grunt
Thousands of fans across the world who love her, respect her, and drive her to win
A ‘never say die’ attitude
An endearing work-ethic and a desire to work for her achievements
Outstanding sportsmanship
A very open, warm and charismatic personality
An ounce of maturity well beyond her years
The end of a troublesome era which has allowed her to redirect and refocus once again on tennis

And most importantly, a hell of a lot of heart. Who is this mysterious person? It’s Monica Seles!! I just have to say – WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT! Who would’ve thought that Monica Seles – stabbed in the back a little over 61 months ago by a psychotic Graf fan, and grieving over the sad passing of her father, her coach and her friend a little over four weeks ago (which only left her four days of practice before the tournament) – would encounter two very important scalps of her career (over world #3 Jana Novotna in the quarter finals and more importantly, over world #1 Martina Hingis in the semi finals) to make the final of a Grand Slam tournament? All this from the former three time French Open champion who was not even intending to enter the tournament this year!! How wrong was she! Thankfully, for all her fans, especially for me, she stayed in the tournament long enough to make the second week, and even through to the final match. No doubt, Seles is back, and back with a vengeance. Watch out, current teenage prodigies, because a former teenage prodigy is back on the road to super greatness!

Unfortunately, Monica lost the final to another “veteran” of the game (isn’t it sad how we call tennis players in their mid 20′s ‘veterans’!). Who was that person who took the glory away from Monica? It was Arantxa Sanchez Vicario. To tell you the truth, I really wished Sanchez would lose the final because I am such a die-hard Seles fan. But you really have to respect Arantxa. She has a great game – she is a great player when put on the defence, and added to that, she will and can run any ball down. She’s got great consistency and I think this is especially what Monica lacked in the final. She was definitely not as consistent as she was against Hingis and in addition, she did not appear to be as aggressive (although Monica was always more of the aggressor in the final). It was a great battle from the first point to the last. The first set was really a see-saw battle, where they were taken to a tiebreaker – Monica fell behind 5-1 until she was allowed by a few unforced errors by Arantxa to level at 5-5. And then two points later Monica had lost the first set, after having an opportunity to serve out the first set when she led 5-3. However, the second set was such a one-sided affair, with Monica just in the brilliant form she was in against Hingis, taking the second set 6-0. Unfortunately, she never maintained that momentum as she could only muster two games in the deciding set. In any case, it was an outstanding battle between two legends of the game, between two outstanding personalities, and although the result did not go the way I would have liked, the title went to a highly respected player by fans and players alike, who possesses an outstanding all court game (she even sounded sincere when she said “Monica I’m so sorry that I beat you” in her acceptance speech).

Birds Various Bathing Methods

As we all know, grooming is a very important part of your bird’s daily life. But bathing is a very important part of grooming. Routine bathing is essential to a healthy, happy bird. Even in the wild bathing is important, where most exotic birds come from areas with around 300 inches of rain, anually! We should not let our standards drop to “mist them every once in a while.” It should be at least once a week, preferably daily.

Bathing can be the difference between a happy bird and a grouchy one, an itchy bird or a content one, a healthy bird or a sick one . . .

One of the biggest questions you find about bathing is, which way? There are many ways that you can bathe your bird, each method should be tried and tested, to see what your bird likes.
Here are some basic bathing methods:

Showers
Larger birds usually love to take showers with you, especially the ones that are big dust producers. Usually, you can find special perches made for the shower that your bird can use. Make sure the perch has a grip and will not fall off. Some birds really like to stand on their master’s shoulder in the shower, it just depends on the bird.
But make sure you do not let the bird come in contact with any shampoo or soap, since this can be toxic.

Misting
Usually smaller birds like this the most. Get a NEW spray bottle that has never been used before and fill it with hot water. Hot water, because when the water comes in contact with the air, it quickly cools. I say NEW spray bottle because used spray bottles could have possibly harmful bacteria and toxic substances contained within, waiting for your bird.
Set the spray flow to fine mist.
You should never use the spray bottle as a punishment, this quickly confuses the bird and things will go downhill from there.

Bathing
Smaller birds really like this one, especially finches. Set a dish down in their cage with lukewarm to partly warm water. Soon they’ll be sending water all over the place.

Just remember to give them a bath in the morning or about three or so hours before they go to bed. It is very unwise to let a bird go to sleep all wet.

Classical Music – The Future – Symphonically Speaking

“What is this new generation coming to?” is a phrase uttered by more than one generation as it looks, somewhat askance, at the one following. I suspect more wisdom would be attained by looking at the ones preceding. Not too likely.

In the world of symphonic music, however, the next generation is in good hands. In more ways than one. At this very moment, (June 11-16, 1998) a National Youth Orchestra Festival is underway at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. This wonderful wooded campus is located nearly at the top of Michigan’s lower peninsula, near Traverse City, not far from the blue waters and shifting sand dunes of Lake Michigan.

From some 177 audition tapes, and subsequent visits by the panel to hear each of the finalists in performance, five youth orchestras were selected to take part in this first such festival in thirty years. James DePreist, music director of the Oregon Symphony, is the festival’s artistic director, and the person who made the festival happen. It took three years.

The participants are the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra (Rossen Milanov, music director designate), Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra (Harry Davidson, conductor), New England Conservatory (Boston) Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (Benjamin Zander, music director), Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra (Edward Cumming, music director) and the Saint Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra (David Loebel, music director). All told, there will be some 500-plus young musicians, ranging in age from 11 to 20, and the music directors and managers for each organization. Not at all a simple undertaking.

Although not all these young musicians will go on to a career in music performance, the discipline that has led them this far will assist them in whatever field they choose. Nearly all of them will go on to college, and continue on the high achievement path that has led them this far. All of the orchestras are open to anyone, though placement is by audition – rigorous audition. Nearly all have a small fee for membership, but scholarships are available, making it possible for any student to qualify based on musical ability. Some of the orchestras commission special works from equally young composers who exhibit an astonishing array of talent.

Several years ago, five of the American-based youth orchestras – Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Saint Louis and San Francisco – through their Commission Consortium jointly commissioned a work by the young American composer, Tobias Picker. And Suddenly It’s Evening takes inspiration from poetry, as does much of Picker’s music. In this case, it is a three-line couplet by the 20th century Italian poet Salvatore Quasimodo. An earlier work, a string quartet called New Memories was inspired by paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe.

Wine – My favorite wine from Chile.

I have found a wine from Chile that goes on my list of favorites. I gave it 89 points and I think you will agree it is delicious. At the price of $12.95 I am buying a case.

PORTAL DEL ALTO. Merlot +427096

Reviews: The Merlot has been celebrated worldwide and is written up as one of the ” Recommended Wines” in Wine & Spirits magazine, June 1997. The Merlot is listed in the Wine & Spirits magazine as one of the “Value Brands of the Year,” described as soft and ripe.

Taste: Grown on ancient vines situated on the San Fernando Estate, the Merlot is ruby red with robust aromas of floral and spice. It’s a well-balanced, medium-bodied wine containing plum and cherry flavors with very soft tannins.

They say that in Chile it is hard to grow a bad grape giving a winemaker an excellent start to produce a premium product.

Portal Del Alto has the winemaker: Alejandro Hernandez is the vice president of the “Office International de la Vigne et du Vin.” The office is in charge of the orientation of worldwide policies for Viticulture, based in Paris. He is a Professor of Viticulture and Vinification at the University in Chile. Having already owned property in San Juan De Pirque in the Alto Maipo, Alejandro Hernandez bought Portal Del Alto in 1970. Alejandro still works hands-on with the vines and winemaking. Alejandro Hernandez is the co-author of the book The Vines and Wines of Chile published in 1986. He is the author of the book Wine and Vineyards of Chile, which was translated into English and which received the distinguished O.I.V. award in 1993.
