You’ve built a WordPress site and meticulously posted your research and
analysis. You’re Tweeting up a storm. But is anyone actually reading and
sharing your work? The first step in driving more traffic to your site is
to get a better sense of the site’s current traffic. Where are visitors
coming from? How long do they stay? What time of day draws the most
visitors? What actionable steps can you take on Twitter to build an engaged
following?Armed with this info, you can begin to tweak your publication
schedule, keywords and content to attract a greater number of visitors and
keep them longer on your site.

video interviews, photographs from the scene, tweets and other forms of

*Beyond Podcasting: Live Web-based Radio Talk Shows
**Tuesday, 12/17, 4-7pm.* *Register
shows are a powerful way to inform and engage people interested in the
topics you research as an academic or advocate for as an non-profit
organization. But most think of live radio talk shows as the preserve of
media conglomerates who own broadcast towers, Federal Communications
Commission licenses and large production crews. Resources that most of us
don’t have.This workshop, however, introduces academics and non-profit
leaders to tools and techniques that allows them to create and run their
own LIVE radio shows. This is LIVE audio on the web that allows your
audience to ask questions and provide perspective.
