Social Media Tips :-

Some of the best ways to generate traffic to your website using Facebook will include are discussed here:

1. Create a business profile

Add your website to your Facebook profile with a brief description of how this is going to be more useful when you choose to be a regular reader and tempt the visitors of your profile to visit your website also.

Your profile is going to be the key for Facebook, which will be driving traffic to your website.

2. Increase your Friends list

You do not have to add new people to your personal profile. This is why we suggest you to start a new business profile in which you can choose to opt-in for becoming friends with new people and share your profile with them.

This way you will find yourself exposing your website details to new people. Currently Facebook has set the maximum limit for friends to be 5, 000 so it will be great to get 5, 000 new readers to your website.

3. Advertise on Facebook

For a little money that you spend on Facebook, advertise on the basis of pay per click and you will also find that you are spending heaps of money on advertisements and online promotions but this will be paid back to you in some other forms.

This is one of the most popular ways to spread the word across the virtual world and can gain you immense traffic to your website than any other means.

4. Conduct Polls and Online Events

Gather your colleagues online at a time and conduct interactive events like a Q&A event, conduct polls and giveaways for participation like freebies or your product samples and you will be finding that you yourself can encourage more readers to go through your website to find answers and ask questions.

5. Join a Group Similar to Your Business

Join a fan page, a group, or a cause and spread the message across Facebook using the all-new Facebook email, which is much more effective in fetching more visitors for your website by promoting the mere presence of a website like the one that you have.

For example, promote your travel website by joining Incredible India.

  3. Without a doubt good starting points on setting yourself up to start generating traffic with Facebook. Putting ALL of those to use over a serious amount of time will certainly help those things work.

  4. Good list. The only thing I haven’t done much is #4. Something I need to work on.

  5. Hi Praveen,

    You’ve mentioned very critical points in your post which needs to be considered for generating huge traffic to your site or blog.

  6. Thanks for these great tips praveen, I agree with satish’s comment because I have tested that and let me tell you all the truth it really works.

  7. Hi Praveen, these 5 tips would be more helpful to increase traffic to your web sites. Thanks a lot for sharing excellent data on here 🙂

    1. I agree with you Kavya. These tips are certainly useful in getting some traffic from Facebook. Let’s implement some of these today and hopefully our traffic will sky rocket! Cheers! 🙂

  8. Facebook is the Easy Method to get a High Traffic. The only Thing to do is just Create a Fan Page with Huge Likes.

  9. I wanna do Network Marketing in Facebook. But I want to get more into a online community, that is more along the lines of people looking for work. …. Any suggestions?

  10. Hi Praveen, I have to admit I’ve been slacking with #5 groups. I can see where being part of multiple groups on facebook would bring you more traffic. Thanks for all your great tips.

  11. Make a good Fan page of your blog or website and keep sharing other sources info on it . If you have targeted followers and friends then they will sure like it and keep sharing you page with other friends too .

  12. well i find social marketing very time consuming and not very high yielding……..i hardly get 50 odd visits from facebook compared to SE…i feel if i spend more time updating my blog, it will result in more SE traffic . will try the email feature though as u mentioned int he last point….havent tried it yet 🙂
    PS – i also feel that these tips are mainly for tech blogs as they can get huge traffic running cool giveaways and awardds 😛

    1. i some what agree to you that ‘SE+good content’ still rules the traffic game but, ‘FB like+good content’ can make your content go viral around the world.

      if you have a Fan Page on FB and a fan box on your blog (obviously with good content) then even a single like by a person with 150 friends will make your content to be seen by those 150 friends and knowing that one of their friend liked that content the probability of getting more likes increases. Thus, again putting your content to more 150 people’s personal wall with a friend’s reference.

  13. Good list of tips to get traffic from Facebook. I like them all except advertising in Facebook. 🙂

  14. More importantly, post quality content that the users might want to read. 🙂

  15. Nice tips to generate traffic,
    I would suggest to make a separate Facebook account for promotion of our website, because if we done that in our personal Facebook account our friends will be irritated by the link!! 😛 So it is better to use separate FB Account for generation of traffic to our websites,

  28. Great post! Thanks for the info. I’m always a little shy about running contests. I just started a Facebook page for my site in April, and am at a standstill. I just don’t want to come across as one of those people who looks like they’re desperate to get LIKES. This motivated me to come out of my shell a bit.

  29. Using Facebook fan pages to drive traffic to any website or blog is very important. Facebook has a large audience and you an easily find people interested in your niche. Making your page interactive is the key to having a successful fanpage. To leverage more on this, you’d need to ask questions, post videos and relevant articles, put up contest and post useful links to quality information. With these, your fans would interact with your page content and your page would grow in popularity.
