Facebook is one of the top social networking sites which you can use to drive huge traffic for your blog. When you combine the Twitter and Facebook to drive traffic to your blog, you will surely get bonus traffic for your blog. I always suggest bloggers to target Twitter and Facebook throughout because if your post get viral on any of these social media sites, you will be getting decent traffic spike. One of the easy way to drive traffic via Facebook is using a Facebook fan page. When people click on like button of your Facebook page, whatever you are sharing on your fan page wall, will be visible into facebook timeline of fans.
Another way by which you can drive traffic is by auto-sharing your content on your Facebook profile. Now to make most out of it you should have a considerable amount of friends on Facebook and especially those who are interested in stuff written in your niche.
Twitter is tool for internet marketer, blogger and webmasters. Most of the twitter users falls in the above category and making them joining your Facebook profile is good idea to drive quality and targeted traffic.
I try to make sure that my Twitter followers also become a friend on Facebook and for this, I send a Twitter Direct message to all new followers saying:
It’s pleasure connecting here, will love to see you on Facebook http://facebook.com/harsh.agrawal
Many of them who are real followers and like my sharing, they connect with me on Facebook. There are many tools which you can use to send Auto Direct message. One which I use is a free tool call Social-oomph.
One thing which you should take care of is, use Facebook as a real human instead of making it an auto Facebook profile (Bot Facebook profile). Interact with your new friends on Facebook and get to know them.
One last thing here is don’t combine your personal and blogging life into Facebook. Even if you add all your family and online friends on Facebook. Make sure you make good use of Groups and Privacy feature.
Do let us know, if you add lots of friends on Facebook or you use it for personal use only?
