Triberr – It’s easier then it looks to get started.

I joined triberr and was confused almost right away. I can tell how many others instantly got in the same boat. Once you figure out what to do, it’s an awesome website; it has already done such a wonderful job getting people to this blog.

First let’s talk a little bit about Triberr and why you should be on it.

Triberr: Extending my blog’s blade.

Triberr is a website that pools people into a group for one purpose – tweeting the group’s blog post. Usually if I tweet my blog on twitter I get 5-6 views, which at the time sounded pretty high. Now with Triberr, the same link gets tweeted by 7-10 other people resulting in 80 views. The first day I saw this, I was incredibly impressed. The only other time I had that many visitor’s was when I was investigating art theft, but that’s another blog post.

Triberr is great a great concept to getting more readers and followers. Oh, and for you Klout fans out there, the first week you start this you will see an amazing spike in your klout score.

I also suggest getting an invite first, since it’s free to join a tribe this way. Otherwise you have to use your fictional “bones”(the currency of Triberr) to join tribes and they can disappear quickly. If you want to create you’re own tribe, you need every bone to invite people within the Triberr community. Just send me a DM on twitter and I’ll send you an invite. Don’t just make an account and try to figure things oiut. Be patient and someone will invite you and hopefully show you the ropes.

Getting Started: The easy way.

Triberr has lots of tutorials on getting started. I think they know some people find it daunting at first glance and have tried to help them ease the pain, but have not succeeded. I googled how to get started and found a very helpful guide but the problem was, I didn’t know where to get the information. These are the two thing you need to setup: your rss feed and your twitter account.

Here’s one way to get your rss feed link:
1) Open your homepage on your blog in a window or tab.
2) Go to view (both on MAC and PC) on your toolbar above and then look for “Source” or “Page Source” option. On a Mac go to View > Developer > View Source .
3) A window with html should come up and then after your search for “rss”, you’ll find this ( link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”lverawrites » Feed” href=”https://lverawrites.wordpress.com/feed/” )
4) https://lverawrites.wordpress.com/feed/ is my RSS feed.

Another easy way:
If you use one of these blogging website:
wordpress: http://domain.com/feed/ or http://domain.com/?feed=rss
blogger: domain.blogspot.com/rss.xml
livejournal: http://domain.livejournal.com/data/rss

You can test this out by manually importing you RSS feed on Triberr.
1) Log on to Triberr
2) Click on your icon on the top right and go to your settings.
3) Then click on your blog settings. You should see this.

4) Click on Manually Import and it will import all your post into Triberr. If you are also impatient, this will push the post into your stream faster.

Setting up twitter: Let’s tweet this Blog.

If you look at the same picture above you’ll notice right above Blog Settings is Twitter Settings. Just add your twitter handle and password and your done. This is a lot easier then setting up your rss feed and I think that’s where many people give up at.

Now we are ready to rock Triberr.

Let’s tear this place apart.


Join a tribe. Mine’s called Madmen / Madwomen and I’m looking for bloggers in the more creative, darker and unusual blogsphere. Of course if you still want to join my tribe just remember we may post adult type content, but you always have the choice to not tweet it.

Make your own tribe and invite people you think will help you out. It’s exciting to see people actually visitng your blog regularly and many times you just need a little boost. Thanks Triberr.

So that’s Triberr in a nutshell and hopefully it should get you on your way. Please feel free to ask me any questions. I try to respond to everyone everywhere. 🙂
