RSS Graffiti Facebook

RSS Graffiti in Action on DailyBlogging's Facebook Page.

1. Post your Blog URL on your Facebook Profile

When you are opening your new account in Facebook, or while creating your profile page, it is advisable to display your blog address and details.

Nevertheless, the system that Facebook has to protect your personal information is being restricted only to your Facebook profile and do not guarantee the transmission of your personal information via your Facebook profile.

2. Create pages and like buttons for your blog

Be it your own business or your personal page promotion, use the create page or like button for a personal use and this will reflect onto the amount of traffic that is being diverted to your blog via Facebook.

See that you keep this page updated about the various activities that you do on your blog and keep posting at regular intervals like once in an hour if you are rigorously canvassing about the status of your webpage. This could be automated using services like ping.fm on your blog.

3. Make Facebook page as your Landing page

When you are promoting your blog elsewhere on line, use and edit links on your articles to use Facebook as your landing page, and you will find yourself providing with relevant information to divert the traffic to your Facebook page and back to your blog pages, and thereby promoting your blog via your webpage articles.

4. Use Facebook Advertisements

Create business advertisement using an ad application that is available in Facebook for promoting your blog and like pages. For this purpose, you need to shell out some money from your pocket, but gives immense exposure to loads and loads of users of your similar interests who are all Facebook users.

5. Use of Facebook third party applications

There are a number of third party applications that are available with Facebook, which are useful in inviting and in the promotion of your blog via Facebook.

Some of the applications that can be included in this process of promoting your blog will include My Blogs, Social RSS, Networked Blogs and Blog Badges.

RSS Graffiti is another useful facebook application which will help you get some visits. The use of RSS Graffiti is to update the status of your page on the profile page of yours.

These is made possible by using RSS Graffiti using your Facebook page and link them to your profile page, you will notice that automatically your profile status being updated via your blog. You need not re share the link to your profile page, thus decreasing your workload.

    All these could only be possible when you have supportive and hungry friends in your account. I believe it’s the relationship with your facebook friends would tell how important are your shares to them.

    I have to agree with these 5 tips. I have been using these strategies in facebook and I can tell that they work pretty well.

    • #

      Me too, I have used some of the tips and have great success both in increasing traffic and sales. Advertising in Facebook can be especially useful, but have to be done carefully since the cost can be rather high.

    Facebook fan pages are one of the best ways to build traffic. You can use third party apps like networked blogs and involver plugins to pimp your facebook fan page.
    Great write up Praveen!!!

  4. #

    Very well written Praveen… I use networked blogs to update the status :-)

  5. #

    Hey Praveen, great advice that I need to follow. I’m going to give #3 and see how that works.
    I’m not a fan of Networked blogs or RSS Graffiti. I was using Twitterfeed to send my blog posts to the page, but I’m really experimenting to see what works best.

    I used Twiends the first day so I could get my custom url really quickly and I think it only took about 1 hour to get 25 likes. But from now on, I’m not going to use it much – unless I want to reach a milestone like 200 or 1,000.

    Actually this is what required to break into Panda effect.

    I like all these lists and definitely think that Fb ads can be great advertising at a great price, if you have the budget for it. Just don’t know how effective the landing page is going to be :)

    If its your first time on facebook I am pretty sure you can take advantage of coupons out there that provide 50 dollars or similar values of free money to use on facebook ads.

    YES! you are of sane mind. and yes, facebook not only promotes it but FEEDS on it. facebook company asks the question “what are the needs of our customers? answer : ME ME ME ME MYSELF AND I “

  29. #

    YES. It definitely does promote narcissism! You’re not the only one who has noticed that. I use it to stay connected with old friends, etc. I use it to communicate with those I rarely see in person. But it seems that more & more people are using it just to simply post about THEIR life, THEIR pictures, blah blah blah..

    For this purpose, you need to shell out some money from your pocket, but gives immense exposure to loads and loads of users of your similar interests who are all Facebook users.Thanks Praveen……
