Must Tweet Monday: @HashTracking #Twitter #Chat Analytics
I have had a few people ask, “How do you get the analytics for Twitter Chats or Hashtags.” Well, I recently started using a service called HashTracking. They are very wonderful people, quick to respond and very easy to work with. They even provide Snapshots of Tweets, Impressions & Reach, Top 20 List, Drill-down Content Analysis, Detailed Contributor List and Full Transcripts.
(mind you this is not a paid endorsement or advertisement of any kind, I just REALLY love their service!)
Twitter hashtag analytic’s also give you a way to:
- Track Campaigns
- Measure Reach
- Calculate Influence
- Create Beautiful Presentations
You can get free basic reports, very powerful 1 day, 1 week & 1 month Pro Reports and Multi-hashtag Monthly Enterprise Solutions.
Hashtracking is currently in Beat mode but I have been using for two months and could not be happier with their service!
I told them I would be writing this post so you can actually contact them to try it out and ask to be a Beta user.
Here is the email: admin @ hashtracking.com or follow them @hashtracking on Twitter!
NOW JUST IN CASE
Wondering what a hashtag is and that’s perfectly ok, cause I had the same question a few years ago.
I got this form the Twitter Help Center
What Are Hashtags (“#” Symbols)?
Definition: The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.
Hashtags: helping you find interesting Tweets
- People use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets to show more easily in Twitter Search.
- Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category.
- Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet.
- Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.
Example: Below I added the hashtag before the word “CMchat” and “CountryMusic” in my message. The word is now a link to search results for all Tweets containing “#CMchat” and “CountryMusic” in the message.
Best Practices for using hashtags
- If Tweet with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag may find your Tweet.
- Don’t #spam #with #hashtags. Don’t over-tag a single Tweet. (Best practices recommend using no more than 3 hashtags per Tweet.)
- Use hashtags only on Tweets relevant to the topic.
