Using social networking sites, particularly Facebook, can be a great way to direct traffic to your blog. There are a number of tips and techniques that you can actually use on Facebook to direct traffic to your blog. If used correctly, these strategies can get you a good following on your blog, and help you to achieve the targeted numbers.
The fist tip is to appear on other peoples profiles. This is a delicate task as there is a fine line between sharing information and spamming. The best way to avoid this is to tag people that are your friends or those that you have established relationships with on Facebook. Also make sure that the content that you tag is useful for the reader. Once you tag your friends, you can get people to look at your blog if they are looking for more information, or are simply curious about the topic in question.
Secondly, it is important to have the right keywords for your blog to ensure that it is highly ranked on online searches. Make sure that you have the appropriate keywords, and incorporate these into the content that you post on Facebook. Also make sure that the keywords are strategically placed in the content so that they don’t appear misplaced or forced.
By constantly posting notes on Facebook, you will be able to keep your target audience interested and curious to read the next blog. Make sure that you have regular updates, and that each is related to the next. This is a great way to get people talking about your blog and to get them to visit your blog.
Additionally, you can use RSS by subscribing to the service at which point people that follow your blog will get the recently published notes by you. This is a great way to keep in touch with your target audience, and to let them know when you have updated new content to your blog.
Also try engaging the thoughts of the reader by posting some thought provoking articles online on your blog. This may also include asking questions or posting some controversial information like e.g. on Impacts of Technology to the society, The power of E-markets to local business settings etc
