Working with a large mind map
The first thing to do after downloading and opening the Twitter #Hashtag Tracker mind map is to select the center topic, and collapse it. The easiest way to do this is to use the Windows CTRL+D keyboard shortcut. At this point, you can breathe easier because all that’s visible are the 12 primary topics, i.e., #Business, #Marketing, #VisualThinking, #Psychology, etc.
From this perspective, we can see how mindmap topics logically relate to each other, making it easy to locate desired information.
To better understand how topics relate to each other, let’s explore #marketing #hashtag.
Select the #marketing topic by clicking on it, then expand it by clicking the + sign.
The #marketing topic expands, revealing 14 subtopics related to marketing, each with its own #hashtag.
Each time you expand one of the 14 subtopics, it reveals more resources for you to explore.
Step 2: Select the contentmarketing #hashtag
For example, let’s explore the various subtopics associated with #contentmarketing.
When you select it, 7 content marketing #hashtag categories appear, i.e., #blogging, #branding, etc.
Numbers follow some of the #hashtags. These numbers display the number of other #hashtags associated with the topic.
Note: when you create #hashtags, do not include spaces between words. Only the first word counts.
Step 3: Explore with greater precision
To dig deeper, let’s assume you’re looking for #hashtags appropriate for promoting a blog post you recently created or curated. Select the #content #hashtag. This will reveal 14 #hashtags for content related topics.
The ability to target specific topics can enhance the effectiveness of your content. The more specific you are, the more likely your content will resonate with your readers. This will pay off by increasing your followers. Using the appropriate #hashtags also makes it more likely to be noticed by the content creation or curation leaders you’re looking for.
