I do it the same way as you--for all two batches I've done. Okay, I'm still new at this. I don't think I aerated or mixed my first batch well enough. So, for my second batch, I filled carboy with cold tap water (just under 2 gallons) and transferred cooled wort into carboy, making sure to splash a lot. Insert stopper with finger over end, shake the crap out of it for about 1-minute. POUR some into my glass cylinder for an OG check. Add my yeast, proceed to shake the crap out of it for another 20 seconds and call it good.

Seems to have worked okay so far.

I add yeast after wort, I usually shake it up (or use the O2 stone) before pitching the yeast, any of the above ways work fine though
