That’s why Facebook should be the first choice to get traffic to your blog.

There are plenty of ways to spread your blog posts on Facebook.

 Facebook Groups: Yes Facebook groups are one of the easiest ways to increase blog traffic even if you have a new blog.

Go to facebook.com and search for blogging+groups, blog+groups, bloggers+groups and you will find several groups. Join few and share your every post after publishing on your blog.

Select only those groups which are related to your topics and had some decent members.

Keep engage with group members and put some comments on relevant posts.

And one last thing, before going to post read terms and conditions of that group carefully. Because some groups did not allow members to promote their own articles.

 Facebook Fan Page:  I think you should create a Facebook page for your blog straightway after started blogging. You can even create it before launching your blog.

Yes, pages are mostly helpful when you have a decent number of followers. So, after creating your page try to increase likes as much as possible.

You can add a Facebook like box on your blog sidebar to make it easy for the readers to reach your page.

Share your page link in Facebook groups and on other social networking sites where you are an active user.

More you get likes will bring more visitors into your blog.

You can also try Facebook ads to promote your page with a cheap budget.

If you do not have a good number of followers still, you can get benefits from your Facebook page.

Just share your several articles on multiple times of a day.

Don’t forget to share others articles too. Keep an 80:20 rule while sharing on the Facebook page.

Twitter

Twitter is my favorite among the social media sites. Because it has genuine users.

Create a Twitter account and follow others from your fields. It will help to get followers on your account. More followers you have more your site’s appearance will increase.

Share all your posts just like other social networking sites. Not only your`s but also share others content it will make a good relationship with fellow bloggers.

Use a link shortener tool and always remember to put #(hashtags) before keywords.

Add appropriate image along with text while tweeting anything. Because research has shown that tweet with images are clicked more.

Google+

If you can able get traffic to your blog from google plus then I am sure you has a good reputation on this platform.

Am I right?

I hope so.

You can bring visitors from google plus even if you don`t have a good number of followers.

My site is now getting some views from google plus. And even better compared to Facebook or Twitter.

And the coolest part is that I don’t have any followers on my google+ page.

You will think what the real trick is?

Nothing.

I just share my every article on Google+ plus page and some of the most appropriate google plus communities. That’s it.

So, without doing any significant hard work you can get traffic to your blog from here.

That’s why I include this on my list.

It brings good traffic without having any followers.

Really fantastic isn`t it?

Blog Commenting

Blog commenting also a great way to bring traffic and build a relationship with other bloggers.

A perfect commenting strategy can make a huge impact on your blog.

Select authority blogs in your niche and subscribe their RSS feed or email newsletter to get the latest post update as soon as possible.

Because your target should be to come up with the first 5-10 comment.
