    Ive heard twitter aint all that for driving traffic If your account has less then 100k anything over that and its possible to get a decent amount.

    Is there anyone here with over 100k followers and get visitors on a daily basis back to there site, if so whats the stats on this?

    How much traffic are you getting?

    Twitter provides you a platform to portray your website. In other words, through twitter you can reach your target audience and stay on their minds. This in turn helps in monetizing your website and the flow of traffic to the website increases. You can promote your business in several ways in your twitter account.

    Yes, you would need real followers and posts that appeal them to expect quality traffic from Twitter. Now if you have good content you can expect conversions too. It's important to impress the prospect to click the follow button first and then keep them interested by posting tweets that are worthy.

    I have 17 accts driving traffic to my site, with anywhere from 2k-10k real followers each, and I see about 150 hits from Twitter a day.

    The thing about twitter, is usually when someone visits the site they won't visit it again. gotta keep following people. I usually just create several different accounts and make it look a little not so obvious.

    I have 25 Twitter accounts with 20,000,000 followers in total... never did any fake followers, bots or anything, but some are just because of the trending topics, keywords, and celebs that follow me. My estimation is that 75-85% are real, so at least 15mm.

    I send about 100k UV to websites between my top 5 accounts alone, so it's absolutely possible if your content is engaging.

    We've got 50k followers, 30% quality, 70% dross, and we get about 70 visits a day on 15 tweets a day. And let me tell you buddy, they all bounce, we suspected bots but the user agents/IPs look clean . . . just not an engaged marketplace for us.

    Why don't you try this
    Open addmefast account
    Tweet something in your account
    Add retweet service in addmefast for your tweet get about 1000 retweets
    Just sit and count retweetsand number of followers

    This way you will be able to calculate your site performance

    Going to try this shortly on a site with very little traffic, will be interesting to see if it makes any difference. I'm still trying to decide if I can use Twitter as a viable traffic source.

    Social Media is a numbers game. Unless you target a small amount of people you barely will be making money,

    It is relatively easy to get traffic from twitter but the quality is really bad, if you can't get atleast 1000 uip/day to your website don't bother, you make peanuts. Dunno about the followers, I dont use them much but with one of my accounts with 30k followers I was barely able to get 100 uip/day (not sure how I got the followers, maybe they're fake, who knows.)

    As always, this is a quantity vs. quality issue. It doesn't matter how many followers your Twitter account has if they are unengaged. A Twitter account with 10,0000 engaged followers is going to see much more traffic to their site than a Twitter account with 100,000 fake followers. With quality content and engagement, you will see the traffic to your site increase. The more people share and comment on your content, the more traffic you will see. Work on gaining quality followers, not just any followers.

    If you have real targeted followers,then you will see great results.If your followers are not real or loosely targeted all you'll get is nothing.

    1. Determine what you want to achieve with your Twitter account, and focus your account on those goals, tailoring your bio and your tweets appropriately. "If your Twitter goals are wide, why not start multiple Twitter accounts, one for each objective," writes Problogger founder Darren Rowse. "For example, you could have a social one for your friends, one for each blog that you have to drive traffic, and another to build profile."Your tweets should closely reflect the goals you?ve set. Don?t tweet frequently about your personal issues if you?re trying to build a business following. If your account is about a specific interest, send ?@replies? to ask questions of others with the same interest.

    2. Complete your Twitter bio, including your location, your website address (using the full URL), the interests that reflect your goals, and other information that strangers might want to know about you. According to Digg Founder Kevin Rose, "Your latest tweets and @replies don?t mean much to someone that doesn?t know you. Your bio is the only place you have to tell people who you are."

    3. Include a photo to attract interest. Research has shown that people who include a photo in their Twitter profile average over 250 followers, while those who don?t fall well short of 50. If your Twitter account is about yourself, use a photo with your smiling face. Rowse recommends using a picture that reinforces your brand. ?If your brand is you, then a picture of you would be worth adding. If your brand is your blog, then use a logo of some kind."
    4. Promote your Twitter account everywhere you can, including your blog, Facebook profile, company website and other social sites. Most social networking sites and blogging software include a place to add a Twitter link to your profile. Add your handle (?@username?) to your print literature as well, and if possible include a QR code that readers can scan with a mobile phone. "Every time I give a talk, speak on a panel, shoot a podcast, present slides, or hand out business cards, I figure out a way to broadcast or display my Twitter account," Rose writes.
    5. Seek out people who are talking about the things you care about. Vaynerchuk recommends using Twitter's Search feature to find people discussing the topics that stir your passions. When you find someone discussing a topic, you can follow, retweet or reply to them, letting them know you?re passionate about the subject. You may also get ideas for your own tweets by following people you admire.If you?re blogging as a business, seeking out people who are talking about your business is critical. ?I don?t think any brand or business should let a customer talk about them on the social Web?and not engage it,? Vaynerchuk told BusinessWeek.


    6. Make your tweets count. Twitter is full of users who post nothing but inspirational quotes, random news articles or "trending" topics, and people have become blind to those posts. Such tactics are likely to decrease your follower numbers, not increase them. Instead, tweet useful, unique content. Tweets that are interesting enough to be retweeted will gain you a much wider audience. Rose recommends tweeting photos, which are more likely to be retweeted.Ask questions and engage in conversations. If you're using the account to promote your business, this is even more important. Twitter, according to Vaynerchuk, "is the first place where the skill set is not giving a presentation. It's working the room. It's a cocktail party."
    Even when your follower count is low, your tweets can be found by anyone using a Twitter search, so even when you?ve got a low follower count you?re not necessarily shouting into a vacuum. If you make your tweets appealing to someone who might be searching for a specific topic, you may convert strangers into responsive followers. Consistent use of hashtags (a word or phrase preceded by ?#?) makes your tweets easier to find as well. Rowse suggests tweeting at peak times, which coincide with U.S. business hours, for maximum visibility.

    7. Analyze your Twitter behavior and the response to your tweets. Social media consultant Chris Brogan recommends periodically taking a ?Twitter audit? to ensure you?re balancing your original tweets, retweets and replies, and checking on what your followers respond to. This will give you a good idea on what to change and what to focus on as you build your following.
    8. Don?t bulk-follow random people in hopes that they?ll follow you back. Besides attracting poor-quality followers, this tactic may result in restrictions to your account. According to Twitter, after you follow 2000 people you must maintain a reasonable number of followers as well, or Twitter will limit or even suspend your account.Although reciprocal following may seem like a solution for your low follower numbers, following people you don?t really care about can result in problems such as spam and missing the communications you do care about in the flood of those you don?t.
    Instead follow only the people or businesses who best relate to your goals. That way you?ll find a much higher ratio of tweets in your timeline that you can reply to or retweet yourself, which in turn will help you hook new followers.
