Okay so exactly what social networking are you going to use to get traffic. Well your not going to use just one your going to use as many as you can. What I have found is that using Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest I have gotten good traffic and it seems to be getting better. It does not mean you will have instant success unless your one of the lucky or special ones.
So what I do is after I write my post I put it on all three social networks. For example on pinterest I create a board that is associated with what my nice is about. In other words I use ham radio. I find a number of people to follow and pin them to my board. Then I add some pins in with the post title and a link to my blog url. This way they can make their way to my blog and who knows what will happen. I also take and add a couple of my affiliate links mixed in, not too many. You do not want to be tagged as a spammer.
The next social network I use is twitter. What I did was create five or six different twitter accounts. I then write a tweet associated with my blog post and place the url link on the tweet. I do this for three or four accounts so I get the post out in the public on the net. I also like to place a picture associated with my subject as it gets attention. I will also send out maybe one or two affiliate links a week two. This way I won't be spamming and the item is associated with my blog. I do get quite a few clicks and have sold a few things. At least it gets traffic to my blog and they may come back for more.
The third social network I use is facebook. What I did was create a page and titled it according to my niche ideas. I then find posts on facebook and share them to my various pages. This way it gives people something interesting to read or watch such as a video. Everything is always associated with my niche. I also place a affiliate link every so often. I have heard of people let go of facebook for dong too much of the affiliate links. I also have my web address to my blog so people and get there. I also put out a facebook post and place my website url in it. That way people may come to my blog and purchase something or click a adsense ad.
There are other types of social networking that can be used. The whole point is to get traffic to your blog and keep them coming back for more.
Thank You for stopping by.
