Hello friends! And you know I mean that with the deepest sincerity, you are all in many ways closer to me than most people in ‘real life’. I know we have a variety of users of different ages using different devices, some who social medialize, some who do not (you smart bastards you), and well… though we are all fairly like minded, we are all quite different. This leads me to the point of ways to promote TPW, which has become one of my main goals (outside all the other ones) recently. Here’s a quick list of easy things you can do if you are able/willing that can increase our traffic:
*Share posts on social media. Either as standalone posts or you can always retweet my @ProgressiveWing posts of the day if you find them agreeable enough. Also, I will become better about updating facebook (I did it today), so if you head over to https://www.facebook.com/TheProgressiveWing you can share a post, or just do as many others do and post the link directly to your page.
*Click links. Any links. If its a link to a candidate, an organization, anything…. click it. You dont necessarily have to spend time reading everything on said site, but if you leave it open in the side browser for a few minutes, it does help. Analysis will show said site owners where the clicks from and how long we stayed there, thus giving them reason to link back to us.
*Like Comments/Posts. Now Im not saying like something you disagree with or just dont think should be here… but if you do enjoy said post.. go ahead and give it a like as that kind of think feeds into a positive feedback loop making content creators more willing to create said content.
*Tell your friends about us! I know for one, I dont talk about politics to many of my friends or coworkers. It ends in disaster. But when I have a like minded friend who is looking for information or who may be misinformed… I send them this way. Most lurk, but hopefully more and more come out of the shadows soon. If anyone has signup issues, send them to the tpwhelpdesk as I can fix the problem in near minutes now!
*Goodle/Yahoo/Bing/Whatever search for TPW, The Progressive Wing, whatever. Click our main links. Once again this helps with keeping us up in the rankings and more likely to be run across.
Any other suggestions?! Would love to hear them!
