What I do on Facebook to get traffic
Facebook Daily To Do List Explanation.
This is about using your personal profile to post.
There will be another one about working with your Fanpage and posting on groups.
Post 1 to 3 times a day. 3 times a day is ideal.
No matter how many people you have on your friends list only a certain percentage of them will ever see your post on their Newsfeed. I have 2600+ friends and no matter what only a percentage of them see my Newsfeed. The more active you are the more people who will see your post.
Do not post outside links. When you post a link with whatever you post you greatly reduce the number of people who will see that. Outbound likes hurts the exposure on your post. You have to understand that.
I mention doing it daily which is ideal but if you do this at least 4 times a week you will see a difference.
1 post should be you sharing something you liked that someone else posted. The more you share the more other people see your post.
1 post should be a meme, graphic, picture, video or something similar. They get seen more than a post with just text. If you take a picture and add your website URL to the bottom of the picture it does not show up as a link and will not be penalized for an outside link.
If you are using pictures with your URLs on it each day they see that and the lifestyle post every 2 day. This is where the traffic comes from to your site.
1 post can be a question, a poll, something to get people interacting with you.
Once every 2 day post a lifestyle post. For instance, if you are promoting Wealthy Affiliate you might post,
“I am sure learning a lot about WordPress in this new course I am taking.”
“With this new training I am going through I built my first website.”
“Today the course I am taking finally explained how to use keywords to get traffic to my site.”
Use you imagination to get them interested so they respond to you.
No link just something to catch their interest. Make sure you respond with a Private Message with your link to everyone who ask you what you are doing.
Also, it is very important to make sure you respond to everyone who comments on what you post even if it is a few words. That shows Facebook you are being social and increases who sees your post.
Find 3 people in your niche that have 5000 friends and post a comment on their newsfeed once a day. It helps people get to where they recognize your name.
Make a comment on 10 post on your newsfeed. It can be a simple comment like where someone says good morning and you reply. 10 comments on your newsfeed.
Next go to your friends list and find 10 people on it who were not on your news feed and comment on one of their post. That way you are making sure that at least 20 people will see your post on their newsfeed.
Add 20 new Facebook friends a day. If you get 5 friend request then you only have to send 15 friend request that day. Either get friend request or send friend request to 20 people a day. The goal is to get to 5000.
If you send someone a friend request make sure that you send them a private message along with the friend request. It can something like. “I saw your comment on _________ and would like to add you as a friend.”
Make sure you check the friend request you get. If there are not a lot of mutual friends or they only have one or two things posted do not accept it. Deny the request.
If you get a friend request you accept make sure you click on their name and go to their profile and leave a thank you for the friend request.
This is what post on there profile.
It takes about a week of doing this before you see an increase in the number of people who see your post and the number of people who comment on them go up.
This is a simple list that will get you started. You do not have to do it every day but you need to do it at least 4 days a week. If you do will find they you can get a steady flow of traffic to your website.
One quick tip for more traffic, make sure the URL to your blog/website is in your description for your profile picture. On your profile picture there is a place to add a description and make to add your URL. You will be surprised the traffic you get just from that.
When I want to drive traffic to my website I do this. If I stop for awhile then when I start again it takes about a week to get back to where I will average 10 to 20 visits a day from Facebook. Since post do not expire the more consistent I am the more the traffic increases.
Here is the short list
1 to 3 post a day
3 comments on newsfeeds of well know people in your niche
10 comments on post in your newsfeed
10 comments on friends post that are not in your newsfeed
Respond to all comments on your post.
Get or send a friend request to 20 people a day
It works try it.
