    So I run a semi automated blog on a certain up coming video game that I'm trying to build up to be a more gray hat site. I had been submitting the posts to social media sites using http://www.OnlyWire.com, building link wheels, doing article submissions, and having unique content being written for it. But traffic wasn't climbing past 20-30 visits a day.

    I decided to check out how Twitter can help bring traffic to a blog. After reading quite a few good posts around the forum I set up a Twitter account under the name of the blog and put an avatar related to the niche.

    Then I used http://twitterfeed.com/ to have my RSS from the blog directly tweeted on to Twitter.

    I then had to find a way to mass follow people in hopes of them following me back. Once again I searched BHW and came across Pyrogenic Media's Phoenix Twitter Desktop app which allows you to manage multiple Twitter accounts and mass follow people after entering a certain keyword as well as auto update the accounts tweets from a list.

    One trick I learned while reading around the forums was to remove anyone you are following that isn't following you within 24 hours of adding them. The reason for this I think is so your account doesn't stand to far out as a spammer if you are following 20k+ people and only have 1k following you it's going to look fishy. What I did was use an auto unfollowing web app. http://www.refollow.com/refollow/index.html It's pretty simple to use.

    Then just the past 2 days I've only followed about 1k people and have 128 following me back and an extra 100 hits to my blog of 100% targeted leads.

    Nice, been looking into getting some twitter traffic too. Do you automatically tweet your posts or are you doing regular tweets manually?

    Thanks, yeah I've been noticing that the traffic isn't that great any more. I
    all it is now is mostly spammers following other spammers just spamming each
    other with their ads. But you can still find the occasional real user of the
    service and depending on your website or product he could be worth a lot!

    I'm not currently engaged in Twitter Follower (Whoring? Err...) Gathering, but when I was, I generally filtered spam-bots out by using something like "philosophy -http" I did this to filter out the bots taht use http and it greatly reduced the number that popped up, although the occasionaly few did follow through.

    Twitter will prevent you from following 20k+ people if you only have 1k following you. Once your account is following 2k people Twitter will begin to throttle your account until you reach 2k followers.

    What kind of video site?

    You could make an account and add people using that follower I posted you
    would just enter the niches as keywords to search for followers. Then you
    can just update the account with your latest videos and site news.

    Where did you use "-http", is that when you enter keyword searches for followers?

    Ok, cool, I didn't know that, thanks!

    Yes I do Kiner, it's in my profile.

    Awesome, keep me updated, I gotten an extra 300 visits so far.

    It's not that big of a deal, just create a quick email for that domain and you
    should be golden. I don't even change IP addresses but that's probably a
    mistake on my part.
