You can increase traffic to your blog with Twitter in a variety of ways, but if you're not including the right Twitter hashtags in your tweets, then you're missing a huge opportunity to increase the number of people who see and share your tweets. That means you're missing an opportunity to increase traffic to your blog, too. Following are websites where you can search for Twitter hashtags and identify the right ones to include in your tweets so more people see your tweets, share them, and follow the links in them to read your blog posts.

Just type a keyword (or keyword phrase without spaces between words) into the search box on the home page, press the Enter key, and you'll get a lot of information back.

Just visit Twubs, enter a keyword into the search box, and you'll get a continuously updated stream of tweets using that hashtag as well as a snapshot of the Twubs group members for that hashtag.
