Facebook, Google+ and Linkedin Communities Can Make Very Good Contribution to Your Blog Success

FaceBook and Linkedin (also Google+) communities can make very good contribution to your blog traffic. Even though in earlier days I have not found much traffic from these communities, I observe in recent days good number of visits from FaceBook Communities.

One needs to select a community which is relevant to the blog and become a participant of the community. One need not repeat often that only very relevant posts get the response. Just because you are posting a link does not mean traffic. There are many more bloggers out there in the community doing same. So You need to plan your promotion effort. I am going to say in the later post specially that one has to understand the needs of the members of a community. Understanding the needs of potential consumers is marketing. In product marketing we specially emphasize marketing concept. It is valid in blogging also. If you can find out what readers want and then write your blog will be read by large number of people. But then also you need a vehicle through which you can communicate that you have a blog and made such and such blog post. Say understanding the requirement does not mean that you will not communicate with the potential readers further. You need to inform them and show the way to access your content. That means that you have to share the link.

I did read some blogger saying they get more than 50% of visits from social media. Now I am also getting similar visits on some days or weeks.

More than 900 visits from FaceBook

Today I saw more than 900 visits to my blog Industrial Engineering Knowledge Center  Industrial Engineering Blog   from FaceBook.  I have to reiterate the point. Do good social media marketing. Develop your relationship with communities. Try and write relevant content. You can expect good response. I got good response not only from a specific community and but from my page on FaceBook on Industrial Engineering. So develop your pages on FaceBook and Google+.

Today I came across a post on utilizing Google+ communities for Blog Promotion. I recommend the blog post to all bloggers. It has ideas from more than 35 bloggers. But go through all of them to get convinced of the importance of Google+ and know more acceptable ways of sharing your blog posts.
One person says 80 - 20 is the rule. You have to share 80% others posts and 20% your posts. At least we have to do 50 - 50. So remember every time you share your blog post, share a post of a member from the community. Also share some interesting article from other sites. Such a discipline may make it 66 - 33 and it may be good.

  1. Great Idea!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy A to Z Challenge!

  2. Interesting thoughts - I have not really explored Facebook communities yet. Good luck in the challenge.

  3. My Facebook visits to my blog seem minimal, but maybe there are more than I realize. During A to Z April I find myself visiting many of the links that get posted on the A to Z Facebook page.
