    Recently, I came across a method that helped me in two different ways. This method will help create conversions for a CPA offer and help you rank at the same time.

    The site I was promoting was a .org EMD for a 1900 Exact Local Monthly Searches keyword.The competition for the keyword was easy/moderate
    The site is less then 7 days old I did NOT optimize the site in any way except for the title tag (imagine the results if you did). In fact, the site actually only had 2 pages: my homepage which was a mess and didn't contain any info, and my landing page, which I used for this whole process. I never intended to rank this site. I was just using it as a place to send Twitter traffic so that my conversions looked good to my CPA network.

    The landing page consisted of a very basic "call to action" picture linking to my CPA offer. Basically, if someone was interested, they click the picture, if not, they leave the page. There was no text or other content as to keep the user focused.

    I created between 15-20 different shortened versions of this url with 15-20 different link shortening services (bitly, googl, tinyurl, etc.) Then I created a spun Tweet that created about 4000 unique Tweets. I included the shortened urls as part of the spintax process so that Twitter would not begin to recognize any particular url and ban it.

    Then, I scraped the followers of some industry leaders in my niche. I generated @replies with all of my 4000 different Tweets. I sent these out at a very safe pace, generally using only 1-3 accounts at a time to be safe (you can do more, I have begun to scale it and test its limits).

    After sending about 1000 of these @replies, not only did my CPA offer convert pretty well, but I ranked #20 on Google in less then 7 days from when I bought the domain!

    This method will NOT get you thousands of dollars a day, but it can easily be tweaked to get you around $50-$100 a day while ranking your site at the same time. Obviously, if you are actually trying to rank a site, you will want to do more SEO work, but this is a great foundation. After this most recent Panda update, Google loves seeing your link a lot on social media sites.

    At the very least, you may want to add Twitter to your SEO campaign to help give you a boost.

    Feel free to ask any questions.
    Twist this method around and make it unique, Good luck!

    I'm using a modified version of TweetAttacks because, as you know, the main one stopped working.

    However, this whole process can easily be replicated in TweetAdder which IS still working.

    I use very basic filters - I manually find someone who I think has profitable followers. This is THE most important part. Then, I scrape their followers, ignoring those with a link in their latest Tweet, or no picture.

    interesting little method, and 50-100 bucks a day doesn't sound too bad either. I haven't given twitter a try until now but this makes me want to test it out, thanks for the info .

    No problem. Twitter is all about scaling, so go big or go home :cool:
    Also, make sure to choose an appropriate offer. Try to find one that actually provides utility to the user. Trust me, they are out there.

    How do you filter follower from 3 account, so you don't have duplicate follower on those 3 account, if you promote the same cpa offer?

    It varies. I use 1-3 minutes to be really safe or 0 to 1 for speed. The more accounts you use at the same time as well as the shorter intervals you use will contribute to how many accounts are suspended.

    Im using a tool. It'd be far too difficult to get 4000 followers manually. The point of this method is that it is pretty damn quick and easy.

    Thanks! Good luck making some money with it.


    I scrape the twitter followers i want to promote to, and then create promotional tweets in the form of @replies. Therefore, every tweet is unique. Then, I keep all the tweets/@replies in the same folder and have about 150 accounts post from it (2 to 4 tweets per account). I set the list to shuffle and whenever a tweet is posted from the file it gets deleted, as to avoid duplicate tweets being sent. I'm not sure if this answers your question or not. This method doesn't involve following other people as you are sending @replies.

    As of currently, I believe it is still on the do not share list at BHW. I will have to talk to some people and see what can be done.

    Is it the twitter traffic that converts more or the search?
