Are you still dissatisfied with your traffic from Social Media?
Do you want massive traffic from Facebook, Twitter etc. just like the pros?
If the answer to any of the questions above is YES, then READ ON. This post might be amongst the best ones you’ve ever read!
Let me tell you that viral content on social networks has higher ranking chances! You might completely disagree with this point and demand for a proof.
This is what I found on one of Rahul Kuntala’s blog posts:
HAHAHA! I got you, right?
Are you serious about getting more social media traffic now? Let’s get started then!
1. Don’t let your content suck!
The same old stuff! You all know what I mean……….
Just keep in mind that CONTENT IS THE KING!Your blog isn’t a blog if it lacks worthy content!
Your content should have something that your audience can’t resist sharing. You might have read that “If your content sucks, so will your traffic!” But I would say that “If your content sucks, so will your social engagement!”
To conclude this point, I would say that write something that is WORTH SHARING!
2. Make your content easy to share
Where would your audience go if your blog doesn’t have buttons for sharing on Facebook, Twitter etc?
Sometimes your readers would change their mind if those buttons are absent!
You would surely regret that, won’t you?
I won’t stretch this point for more. You should get those social buttons on your blog. They remind your audience to share your content and also make the content shareable with just a click!
3. Share it yourself
You can’t force your readers make the content go viral. You need to do a bit as well!
Make sure that every post you write is shared on each and every social network you’re a member of! Your followers on social media should stay updated with your latest updates!
That is the reason why they followed you, right?
4. Be everywhere
If you are a Facebook user, you can’t just expect massive traffic from over there itself, there are many potential users out there, on other networks!
Each and every problogger promotes his/her posts on each and every popular social network!
However, that doesn’t mean that sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn would make your day! There are many other networks, with a better traffic potential, like Pinterest and StumbleUpon.
I still remember once Jon Morrow mentioned that he got massive traffic from StumbleUpon.
You should never underestimate the power of social media!
5. Use Social Exchange
There are websites like JustRetweet and Triberr that help increase the reach of our blog posts, by giving a share for a share or something like that!
The method is advantageous as you sometimes get shares from the pros.
All caught up, folks! There is no more to say on this topic.
6. Link to ProBloggers
This point might raise a question in your mind.
Hey Yashraj, how can linking to pros benefit me?
The answer to this is very simple.
Take this post as an example. I linked to Rahul Kuntala and Jon Morrow over here. He would surely receive a trackback if using WordPress. But if I inform him via email that I have mentioned their articles with a dofollow backlink and ask for a share in return, how can they refuse? A share won’t cost anything to them.
