    While this isn't a method to make money, you can easily couple it with anything else to start getting quality traffic to whatever site you want. Basically, the way this works, is you set a twitter account on autopilot, to automatically tweet at people who have recently tweeted about whatever keywords you are targeting. This is 100% free, and that's a really handy tool to know. It's not a new method that I came up with, but I thought I would post it in a thread so that others can find more easily.

    This is my first thread where I'm trying to really give back, so feel free to let me know how understandable all of this is!! :D

    Let's get started!

    The first thing that you will need is a twitter account. In this example, use twitter account that you would want to get specific traffic from. I'll just choose basket weaving.

    1. Go to pipes.yahoo.com and sign up for a free account. Create a new pipe. This is a tool that you can use to make automated tools. The first thing that we need to do is make this specific pipe pull in people are tweeting about your keyword. click on sources on the left-hand side, and add "fetch feed" to the drawing board on the right. In the blank space you will put the following URL address:

    Code:
    http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=basket+weaving-http
    Where basket weaving is your target keyword.

    2. Next we need to add some filters. On the left-hand side again click on operators, and drag "filter" out to the drawing board. You will add the following three rules:

    • item.author.uri [CONTAINS] twittername
    • item.title [CONTAINS] RT.*RT
    • item.title [CONTAINS] @
    Where "twittername" is the twitter account name you are using to make these automated @ tweets.

    3. Under "operators" you will now drag out a "loop". Then you will click on "string" and drag "string builder" into the middle of the "loop". Inside of the string builder you will add two strings:


    The second string will be what you are retweeting to your targeted twitter users. You can make it say whatever you like. At the bottom of the loop make sure "assignment results to" is set to "item.title". Do this by typing it in open space.

    4. Click on "operators" and drag out "regex". In the three spaces you should fill in the following information:
    1. item.title
    2. http://twitter.com/
    3. @

    5. Lastly, you need to connect all these different parts of the pipe together. Drag the circle at the bottom of the first box the top of the second, the bottom the second to the third, and so on. The end result should look like the pic below. You can test the pipe by clicking on the "Pipe output" at the bottom and clicking the refresh at the bottom left a couple times. You should get a message that looks like:

    Code:
    @randomtwittername you like basket weaving you might like this site: [url]www.blahbasketweaving.blah[/url]
    6. So far we have built an automation that will create messages that are targeted towards our keyword. However, we need to pair this up with our Twitter account. There are a bunch of ways to do this, but I'm going to show you the way I know best. So.

    Save the pipe, and then click "back to my pipes". Click on the pipe you just created and click the "get as RSS" to the right of the name. Copy the URL address which should look something like the following:

    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=de8b2be1254eab2a7745eb7ac030c17d&_render=rss

    7. Go to feedburner.Google.com and paste you're URL link here. Click "next" four times until you arrive at your dashboard. then click "publicize". In the left-hand side click "socialize". Click the button in the middle that says "add a Twitter account". Authorizer twitter account.

    8. Once the two are linked, change the "item limit" in formatting options to 8. Then click activate at the bottom.

    DONE!
    You're all set! It will take about 2 hours for it to start tweeting, but it will keep on going until twitter is defunct. I'm too tired to explain the how this all works if you don't already understand it, but post a question and I'll answer.

    Enjoy!

    To be honest, I haven't really tracked it that well. I have other ways of pulling people in from twitter and haven't really tried to put metrics on it. I do know that I've gotten some high quality followers out of it. Sorry I can't be more precise.

    Yeah. I found it really useful and in the OP take no claim to it being mine. But as it's in the downloads section in an ebook I thought I would write it up here so that it was easier to find. Also I had a pain of a time getting it to work originally?maybe that was just me.

    If the whole idea is to autopost to Twitter it is much easier to use Twitter tools free WP plugin.

    This is automating the finding of tweets with your key words and then
    sending the same people a tweet with a message and a link to your
    money site. Thanks to the OP for putting here to find!

    is there a way to publish content before posting my link? i mean pipe look for keyword ---> pipe find user ---> pipe post content in rss ---> pipe post link in rss ---> app post rss. We could increase conversions that way because our accounts will look less spammy without all our tweets with links.
