Do You Have a Registered Hashtag for Your Book?


You could get tons more exposure for your blog (and your book or services!) if you register a hashtag like #WritersontheMove with Twubs.com as I suggest in a couple of my HowToDoItFrugally books. (Twubs hashtags are case sensitive.) Install that hashtag in your social networking posts when you and your guest bloggers are spreading the word about how helpful your blog is along with the URL (permalink) for the post. A hashtag can save Twitter characters when we work it into a sentence like this:

"Karen Cioffi shares SEO secrets for #authors on the ever-helpful #WritersontheMove blog today. Plz subscribe, too. [Blog URL here.]”

BTW, Twubs offers a separate page free for each hashtag you register. That can grow your SEO (search engine optimization) footprint on Google and other engines. It can include your headshot, book cover shot, pitch, etc. When people follow a hashtag, they get more information on whoever registered it. Check mine for #SharingwithWriters. Mine could be used by anyone who is doing just that—sharing with writers.
