[How To] Boost your Old posts with Twitter

    OLD is GOLD “ , very true statement but also  I see many times Bloggers saying “My posts have become old and hence not receiving any visits or traffic”. This post is my answer to their question. Today I am going to show you how to boost your old posts with Twitter in WordPress blogs.

    So here is an interesting wordpress plugin->  Tweet Old Post , which is used to tweet all your posts to your twitter account  randomly based on the time intervals specified by you. Below are few features of this amazing plugin :

  • Tweet Prefix : Now you can add few prefixes or tags which will be placed at the starting of the tweets in the format
    “{tweet prefix}:{Post Title}…{url}”

  • Post Data : If this option is set to yes then automatically the tweet format will be
    “{tweet prefix}:{Post Title}—{Content}…{url}”

  • URL from Custom Field : This option will allow to fetch the shortened url from the custom field specified by you or else it will use the url shortener in the deafault list as shown below :List of url shortener
    • #Hash tags : You can also insert default hash tags to be included in the Tweet.
    • Time interval : The Minimum Time interval for the Tweet and Random Tweet Interval can be set in this plugin.
    • Post Age :  Depending on the age of the post , this plugin will tweet the posts. This feature has left behind many twitter schedulers.
    • Category Based : The posts will be avoided of selected category as shown below

      This can be done manually and takes only 5 seconds.
      Too many plugins mean a lot of clutter. Every blogger can spare 5 seconds per day or max one minute per day to tweet his old posts. I do that often with amazing results. If your followers get a hint that you are using plugins or feeds to tweet they wont click on your posts 🙂 …Why complicate simple things? 🙂

        Hi cheth 🙂
        You are wright you can do it manually , but it takes much time to choose which post to tweet today and also here this plugin chooses the post randomly and also category based 🙂 🙂

        Many bloggers use several twitter applications by which they loose their account when it is hacked , so this is a better alternative and to make it more look like your regular tweet do not use default #hashtags and prefix option. This plugin is very much useful when you are very much active in Twitter and also sleeping 😉

        Hi Namit 🙂

        You can stop this overdosing by posting daily and setting the post age option as per your frequency of posting 🙂 🙂

        Thanks for commenting 🙂

      This can be really useful where you have a huge archive of posts.

      1. Sunil Jain says:

        Not necessary dude 😀 , If you just change the time interval , It can suit any of the blogs 🙂 🙂

    11. Brandy says:

      Hey there.. This looks awesome. I use the TweetMeMe right now, but was looking for something more in depth.

      I need to have optimal twitter posts and am looking to launch a campaign for only my followers.

      Is this something that can be accommodated?

      Thanks 🙂

    12. Brandy says:

      Ok, just installed, and used this plug-in. It rocks…. At first I thought it was offering different services, but this one is definitely worth getting. You can set up, customize and exclude certain posts or categories. It rocks. Good Job!
