Facebook Traffic: What it Takes to Boost Your Blog Traffic With Facebook

Your blog sucks soon..

If you depend only upon animal kingdom to drive traffic to your blog.

Didn’t understand what I’m saying?

Depending totally on animal kingdom (Google Panda, Penguin etc) is not a smart thinking to drive traffic to your blog.

Because Google is changing it’s algorithms once in a while to stop the repetition of the content (to give better results). It ultimately degrades more blogs ranking factors in the search engines.

It directly effects your blog traffic.

If you hit by panda or penguin, you’ll immediately see a huge traffic drop.

So what can we do to survive in blogosphere and to bring quality traffic?

We must focus on building any alternative traffic source to get traffic right?

And the alternative is..?

Facebook traffic

How to drive Facebook traffic to your blog?

 

1. Build interaction with other bloggers

You can’t build a great network if you spend most of the time only on your blog, can you?

Driving Facebook traffic needs your efforts which you should put on outside of your blog too, like

  • interacting with other bloggers
  • reading their content
  • sharing their blog posts etc

2. Connect Facebook with twitter

Why?

This makes you more interactive with your fans and friends. They can see your latest twitter tweets through facebook notifications, if you connect Facebook with twitter.

This is one of the effective ways to bring more traffic from two traffic sources.

3. Use this Facebook groups

I use these groups to promote my blog posts to boost my Facebook traffic.

And believe me it gives more referral traffic than any other traffic sources like twitter, StumbleUpon or something else.

I hope you’ll see the same results..

  2. Hey Rahul. First of all, thanks for this infographic! Secondly, I had a question in my mind – I’m on EasyRetweet (if you’re aware about it) and normally, I RT many tweets a day. Those retweets are the ones where we add a “RT” before any tweet. Hence, they’re actually tweets. That’s why I haven’t connected my Twitter profile with Facebook. What do you think, have I made the correct decision?

    1. Hello Raaj,

      I don’t use ER, I use JR (JustRetweet), so I don’t have any idea about it. I’m sure you’ll see better results if you connect FB with twitter.

      Once give it a try.. :)

      1. Yes, I’ve the same problem like Raaj’s. I even connected my Fan Page to my twitter account too. But, like you I use JustRetweet So, whenever I retweet any tweet to gain credits.. And this way, all my retweets were being published on my FB Profile and Fan page too, I think people will think that I’m just a spammer when they’d be seeing my tweets as posts on FB.

        My Profile and fan page will be full of links! :O Hence, I had disconnected my facebook account. Have you any idea? What I should do?

        BTW, the Infographics is well-designed. Excellent! Thanks for all this post.

        1. Too many links on profile page??

          It indirectly shows others that we’re bloggers and busy in promoting our content, don’t worry about this.. every blogger’s profile is full of those links ;)

          Thanks for stopping by Mairaj..

          1. Can’t believe such reply from Rahul ever.. But happy to see that you bro, solved our (maybe raaj’s too) Problem.. Thanks.

          2. Being busy in promoting others content on your Facebook wall is good thing, but spamming your Facebook fan page by promoting others content isn’t good idea.

            My suggestion for Mairaj is that he should disconnect his fan page from his Twitter account and connect his Facebook account.

  7. driving traffic from Animal kingdom is all we need. Facebook and other methods are there all the time. But if uncle (Google) got angry then he attacks with animals (Panda & Penguin), and thus we weep then. BTW, nice article and writing style :)
