There are so many ways to make money and from all these ways, you have picked the ‘blogging’, or you are doing part-time blogging? Whatever is, you might be working hard to get traffic to your blog so as to make good bucks from it. Right? Well, as you might know, SEO is very important to make your blog shine on the first page of ‘Google’ and other search engines, for your targeted keyword. Both on-page and off-page SEO are important to get organic traffic. Oh! so you have already crawled the web about ‘Ultimate Guide to On-Page SEO for Bloggers‘ and have good on-page SEO knowledge!! Good to know that, but I am here not to talk about the SEO tips, but to make you aware with the best social media tips in blogging. Let’s have a look at it.
Be a Blogger, not a Spammer
The first and foremost, always remember that you are a blogger, not a bloody spammer. The reason why I am listing here is that I have been connected with bloggers on various social networking websites for quite some time now, and I have noted many bloggers to be using their social networking profiles for link sharing purposes only. When I look at such profiles as a normal user (not as blogger), then the only thing that comes into my mind is that perhaps the profile is automated to share links only. Nobody in this world like to stay connected with automated account. Do you?
Understand the power of big ‘fishes’ in social media
Facebook and Twitter rule the social media, and you might know it already. Both of these sites can bring a hell lot of traffic to your blog. You should create a Fan Page of your blog on Facebook to get most out of it. There are many free and paid ‘Twitter Tools for Twitter Users‘ to enhance their Twitter usage experience. You can use such tools to get maximum benefit for your blog from Twitter. There are many blogs in this blogosphere which are running only by the traffic coming from these popular social networking sites. You should try to stay active on both of these sites regularly as no one on this earth likes to connect with dead profiles.
Social Media is not about ‘Facebook’ and ‘Twitter’ only
Good to know that you are getting decent traffic from Facebook and Twitter. But, the social media is not only about Facebook and Twitter. There are many more social networking sites running. Sites like ‘Quora’, ‘StumbleUpon’ etc. receive millions of hits every day. So such social networking sites can also bring traffic to your blog. If you are working to get traffic from Facebook and Twitter only, then let me tell you that you are missing a big part of traffic, the traffic that you could get from other social networking sites, the sites about which you don’t know anything, the sites which you just underestimate it. Silly blogger!!
Use Social Media Share Buttons on your blog
It’s good that you are promoting your blog’s content on social networking sites, but what if your readers also promote your blog on their profiles? Would not it bring more traffic count in the blog’s stats? Sure, it will! You should give a convenient way to your readers to share your blog’s content on their profiles. This can be done by using the social media share buttons on your blog. Almost every social networking site has got its own share button for webmasters. If using separate button for each social networking site is like a head aching task for you, then you can use all-in-one social media share plugins. There are many to use, but the count depends on your blog’s platform.
The virtual world of Social Media does not have any boundaries. You might have read many blogging tips to get traffic to your blog. Social media is also important and so the social media tips are. In fact, combination of knowledge of Blogging Tips and Social Media Tips can boost your blog’s traffic and so your blogging career.
