Four Reasons Why I <3 Twittley

twittley_logoTwittley is a Digg-like Twitter community where users can “vote” on articles by tweeting them. The more tweets doesn’t necessarily mean a post will be made popular. It depends on the weight of those voting (tweeting) them.

On the frontpage of Twittley you will find their Popular section, showing what articles are popular right now. It contains 15 links and of course you can flick through the pages and see what else is popular that might not have reached the frontpage (yet).

Here are 4 reasons why I’m [hearting] Twittley right now……

What I’m trying to say, is, out of 15 links on the Twittley Popular frontpage, 4 of them leads to TechPatio. That’s not bad. And as you can see, it doesn’t take a lot of tweets either. It all depends on the weight of each tweet (vote) which is based on the Twittley proprietary karma based system.

I’ve grown quite fond of Twittley and use it much more than Digg and even StumbleUpon, at the moment. At least once daily I check the Twittley Popular as well as the Twittley Upcoming to see what might be of interest to me and of course I tweet the that stories I like, in order to contribute to the community.

If you’re a blogger/webmaster, do yourself a favor and check out Twittley and put the Twittley button on your website.

Another cool heads up to save for when I start tweeting again, thanks. 🙂

Hi Klaus, I am using this feature. When I made one new post I submit the link on twittley, but I do not put the twittley widget on my blog. I think It can help us for get backlink from twittley also.

Hi Chandan – why would you submit it to Twittley without having the button on your blog? Then nobody else can easily retweet it and you will never get your post up high on Twittley if it doesn’t get any votes 🙂

Also, you’re not getting backlinks from Twittley. They are all “nofollow”, so search engine wise, you’re getting nothing.

Sounds like a useful tool to make best use of your content, and promote it further.

It certainly is. Have you considered adding the WordPress plugin to your blog? It would make it easy for users to retweet your posts and it stands out a bit more than the “sociable”-sharing bar you’re currently using (both can be used at the same time, though).

Dear Klaus,
I have used a similiar Twitter plugin in the past, though it was not Twittley itself. I’ll see what happens.
Thanks. You are a very good influencer in sharing the things you love. 🙂

The great thing about Twittley is that it’s easier to get on the frontpage (“Popular”) page than with services such as Tweetmeme. As mentioned, with Twittley, it just requries some good tweeters – where as with other services you would usually require *alot* of tweets.

Dear Klaus,
Sounds like a great tool, especially if it is geared up in this way.
I’ll have a deeper look later, and thank you again. 🙂
