Believe it or not, teen pop-star Justin Bieber isn’t the only one who has received extravagant levels of attention on the micro-blogging site Twitter in the past year. This is because the site’s audience goes beyond that of teenage girls and has what appears to be a very technologically savvy user-base, many of whom are more than willing to share their opinions about the latest tech trends and news. Among the hottest technology-focused topics on Twitter in the past year, Apple and Google have both managed to remain relevant throughout the year, according to a recent publication by Computer World.
When looking at this recent study at face value, it’s easy to simply attribute these trends to our obsession with these companies. After all, this same obsession has allowed Google and Apple to steal the spotlight in the media as well. So why wouldn’t it be the same for Twitter?
In my recent article series entitled “Why You’re Not Gettin’ Any”, I discussed why websites do not generate their full potential in terms of traffic and profit. Hands down, the most important aspect of this was the concept of gaining more visitors to your site. After all, visitors are ultimately the key to getting higher numbers of comments and replies, sponsors, donations, and ecommerce sales. But the sad fact for many is that they simply do not know how many visitors their site is getting. So how do you track your websites traffic?
Google Analytics is a truly amazing service that allows you to not only track how many visitors your website is getting, but where they are coming from and what they are viewing as well. This type of information can help you make decisions in regards to choosing a targeted audience, and ultimately bringing more people to your site.
