Now, when you share you new posts on Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed, TypePad shortens your post URLs through the bit.ly service. And now in TypePad you can get simple statistics on how often those links are clicked.
To see how this feature works, sign in to the All New TypePad and check the stats for your blog. Below the traffic graph you’ll see a new link:
Whereas SEO is about helping search engines find your blog, Social Media Optimization helps people find your blog in the places they’re hanging out online.
Click the link and you’ll see a page of real-time clickthrough stats on posts that you’ve shared with your friends on Twitter, Facebook and FriendFeed.Click on the bit.ly URL for each of the entries for more detailed stats directly from bit.ly. Simple!
If you haven't shared any posts on Twitter, Facebook or FriendFeed, then you won't see any bit.ly stats.
If you're not sharing your posts with your friends, it's really easy to set up. Check out the TypePad Knowledge Base for detailed instructions.
