If so, you may want to check out Referrer Detector, a plug-in for WordPress. What does it do?
Once a page on your site is submitted to a social media site every one who arrives to that page from a link on that site is greeted with a customizable message encouraging them to up vote your page if they think it’s worth sharing.
I’ve only had it installed and operating for a few days now and I’m already seeing a slight change in the traffic. Where most of my traffic has come from Stumblers, I’m now seeing Diggers and whatever people who use delicious are called showing up more often than they have in the past.
Of course, it helps if you have a convenient way for your readers to submit your site to begin with and for that I recommend ShareThis. I know. I no longer have ShareThis installed, but I have a perfectly valid reason for recommending it.
My theme is Thesis and thanks to SugarRae, I was able to customize it to display links to social sites without needing a plug-in nor having to dig through theme files.
And with that, I bid you good day (or night).
According to BlogThings, here’s what we’re having tomorrow says about me:
|What Your Thanksgiving Meal Says About You
When it comes to the holidays, you are traditional with a twist. You do things a bit differently, and you’ve established your own traditions.
You see the holidays as a time to think about what’s important to you. It’s a good time to reflect and regroup.
You like the more adult aspects of the holidays – parties, cocktails, and having time off from work.
During the holidays, you are likely to feel generous. At your worst, you feel exhausted.
You consider yourself a real red blooded American, and you’re proud of it.
You tend to spend your holidays doing everything and anything. You really get into the holiday spirit.
Me? Traditional? I didn’t know traditional came in flaming liberal feminist colours. And I was quite unaware that that I not only considered myself a “real red blooded American” (WTF does that even mean? Do the French have green blood or something?), but was ‘proud of it” too seeing as I think patriotism is just another word for fascism and is a kind of faith not too far removed from religious faith.
I obviously have a split personality, no?
