Twitter happens, how Twitter can impact your blog
Okay now if you are an A-list blogger this does not apply to you. But if you are running a small site and you are thinking about promoting via Google SEO and Twitter I give the graph above of my blogs long term growth.
You can say a very long term growth pattern of per day views, following a weekly pattern, being driven by Google SEO. And then a Tweet I made about Facebook and Flickr went viral on Tweeter, and you can see the long term pattern is blown.
The thing about Social Networks for a smaller scale niche blogger, you will one in a while get a massive hit from a tweet, but the patterns of RT are mysterious. They seem to be utterly random and the impact does not last long.
