How To Turn Your Facebook Stream Into Traffic

4 Oct

Have you ever looked at your news feed on Facebook and wondered “How can I turn all of this activity into traffic for my site?” Well, you can stop worrying because I’ve got a quick and easy way for you to inject your content into any conversation you’re having on Facebook. Take a look at the example below:

As you can see, someone named Diana commented on one of my links with a comment and link to her site, momlogic.com. Great idea, right? Say your best friend puts up a post about how they were late to work because they had a fight with their spouse last night. You can leave a comment like “I feel ya dude/hon. Nothing like a bad’s night sleep to ruin the whole day. Check out this story from my job – I think you’ll appreciate it.”

That’s it. Try not to do this more than once a day. Remember your friends can see all your wall posts so you don’t want people to think you’re spamming everyone with links. An occasional link is enough to build up traffic, expose our brand and increase inbound links.

Have fun commenting!

    Personally, when people make a quick, yet unsubstantial comment and drop a link, it reeks of spam. This is what happens on sites like Mashable and Techcrunch all of the time.

    I think the idea behind your post is great, if users can put more effort into writing valuable comments, and also mention why the link is relevant. Otherwise it’s just link-dropping, and that’s never been a good idea.

      I definitely agree with you Joe. This practice can definitely be used to spam sites, but then again so can most other forms of commenting. You can engage with someone on Twitter by using an @reply, or leave a comment on a blog that says “I agree” justfor a backlink. In the end, you’re either a spammer or you’re not, and that really is what will dictate how you use this tip.
