5 Easy Steps to Drive Facebook Traffic to Your WebSite

facebook

Would you like to drive more Facebook traffic to your website?

Getting Facebook fans to your website is even more critical with Facebook’s recent announcement of decreased organic reach for pages.

If you get people to your Website hopefully they will join your mail list.  This is why your content is so important.

No. 1 Make Sure You Regularly Post Quality Content on Your Website

If you have a Website Design that never changes, you’re going to struggle to get much traffic to it. Posting links to the same page on your site over and over is like pushing water uphill.

Today is all about content, content, content

Here are some things you can do:

  1. Post a tip about your niche
  2. Post a weekly news bite about what is happning in your business
  3. Curate a list of helpful articles and why
  4. Post a testimonal
  5. Interview someone

No. 2 Make Sure you can share your Website content easily on Facebook

Once you have fresh content, you need to make it shareable. Your first step is to add a social share plugin and/or Facebook Share buttons.

I am using the Digg Digg plugin for WordPress because it has all of the buttons I want to display and it floats along the side of the post as the reader scrolls through the article.

You should not ignore share buttons on the individual pages of your websites.You may have good content on a other pages of your website that you want to allow people to share easily.

Also consider asking for a Facebook share if you feel you have a particularly helpful blog post. Remind readers at the end of your article by saying something like, “Did you find this article helpful? Feel free to share it on Facebook by using the buttons below.” Remember that people are mostly going to share something that is useful to them. When you’re creating content, always keep your customer’s benefit in mind.

No. 3 Optimize Your Facebook Posts

The next thing you want to do is make sure to optimize the way you post.Facebook

There are  three different ways you can post a link on Facebook to your website, results may vary!

The old fashion way to post a link is just to cut and paste the link into the status section and allow the link to pull in the photo and metadata.

The next approach is to post an image and then add text and the link into the status update. The nice thing about this is that the description travels with the photo when it’s shared so you’re then controlling the message a bit more.

Finally, a technique that has been popular in the past is to post your link in the status section and then “X-out” the link data and change the post to “text only,” even though it has a link in it. But with Facebook recent changes fewer text posts from pages will show in the news feed.

Once you post the content, you may want to consider boosting it with some advertising. This is covered in point 5.

No. 4  Add Links to Your Website in other parts of Facebook

To drive more traffic to your website, make sure you have links in other parts of your Facebook page that people may be visiting.

Use your About page to direct people to different areas of your website.

  1. Add links to your About Page
  2. Add Links to your Milestones
  3. Add links to your photo descriptions
  4. Use Custom Tabs with links to your website

No. 5 Advertise of Course

Advertising on Facebook can be a great option to get targeted traffic if you have a budget. And with Facebook’s recent announcements about decreased organic reach, advertising is going to be even more critical for marketers.

Mobile – Are you Ready?

By mobile are you ready? I don’t mean, do you have a cell phone because most people do!

By mobile I am talking about your website and your social media presence, does your website work on a mobile device, can people  easily see your content on a cell phone or tablet? Phones and tablets are different sizes and therefore you need a website that can scale to show your content easily on any size of device from desktop to cell phone.

I’ll come back to the website in a minute but check out below some statistics on social media and Web.

Social Media

Social Media Today on Mobile is not something that is coming it is here right now. 78% of Facebook user access Facebook and 60% of Twitter users access Twitter through their cell phone.  Page views on LinkedIn are up 250% in 2013 and 40% of YouTube views in the US are on mobile devices.

Websites on Mobile

mobile

80% of users plan to conduct some form of commerce through a mobile device in the next 12 months. Of those, 57% of users say they would not recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site. Not having an optimized website is like closing your store down 1 day a week.

Is Your Digital Presence Mobile?

So back to the Website presence, firstly does your website work on a phone or a tablet?  Some sites have a mobile version and some are what is called responsive web sites.

So what is a responsive web site?  A responsive web site design is an approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices. The great thing is that you don’t have to worry about doing anything special to make your website work on a cellphone or a desktop!

If you use WordPress you can go buy a responsive theme, which is a theme that will auto size based on the platform it is being viewed on.  This Blog is built on a Studio Press Theme, and there are 100’s of themes to choose from.  You can install these yourself or get a professional to build it for you.  This will give you a Webiste that will be responsive and work on mobile devices as well as desktops.

SEOPressor V5 Product Review

SEOPressor V5 — What’s New about This WordPress SEO Product?

WordPress Websites are  decidedly one of the biggest blogging platforms in the world today. Even though it is not a free platform, the professional manner of this platform is what makes it more popular. And that is the reason why a lot of online business entrepreneurs are using WordPress. As a consequence of that, several plugins have been released in the market today by which people can enhance the prospects of their WordPress blogs, and SEOPressor is one of them. Now at version 5, let’s take a look at what makes this plugin so mandatory.

SEOPressorSEOPressor has been tested before for both performance and efficiency, and it was found to be well worth all the investment made in it. In any case, people are always looking out for the best possible search engine optimization for their business website, and the fact of the matter is that WordPress SEO cannot get any better than what SEOPressor can provide. If used correctly, SEOPressor won’t just bring a WordPress website to the top page of search engines but it will also bring it to the top of the top page. Results can be expected to figure within the top 3 on the first page.

The Upgrade

In the past, people have had some complaints the previous version was a bit slow. At version 5, the most noticeable aspect is ironically — its unnoticeable presence. SEOPressor V5 runs in the background of WordPress without slowing down the speed of the website unlike most other plugins and its predecessor.

Multiple Keyword Analysis and LSI Recommendations

Calculating keyword density, formatting keywords for search engine optimization, calculating the SEO score of a WordPress Page to determine how well it will be ranked on the search engines, management of content such as posts – all become things of the past.

With SEOPressor Version 5, we’re now able to calculate more than just one keyword at a time for an article. We can rank up to three keywords and with its latest LSI Analysis feature, where it provides users a suggested list of related keywords for them to include into their page, we can now easily boos

t page relevance and get higher chances to dominate result pages. SEO should not be neglected and even Google’s Matt Cutts advocated, “Google does not hate SEO”.

Over-Optimization Check

SEOPressor Version 5 also now solves a huge worry that mean SEO Marketers had in the past. When people used SEOPressor they were afraid of over-optimizing and getting penalized by Google for doing so.

Now, SEOPressor alerts us whenever we’re over-optimized, and we can easily remove a few keywords or font decoration to get back to an optimal SEO score.

Rich Structured Data Support

We always wonder how those rich snippet stars and ratings appear on search result pages whenever we search for certain products, services, recipes, events or even profiles. This is known as rich structured data, and the new SEOPressor V5 supports it.

It allows the user to display the most relevant information regarding their post and Google takes into account visitor behaviour when it comes to providing users the best search experience and the structured data tool would prove to come in very useful in optimizing on-page relevancy. Now it’s even easier to get higher click through rates.

OG Tags and Twitter card Integration

Everyone’s involved in social media and thankfully SEOPressor has updated itself to come with Facebook Open Graph tags and Twitter card integration, which helps in social SEO. These play a significant role in the future of Google searches, as mentioned by Google and many SEO gurus – that we should be putting in these tags and twitter microdata into our source codes. But many of us aren’t that html savvy so what SEOPressor V5 does, is that it integrates these codes for us automatically. It’s that simple.

Smart and Automatic Linking

We also know that internal and external links can be a hassle to do, but it’s always essential for on-page SEO. Well, SEOPressor now does it for you pretty much automatically.

Sure, the first time your typical keyword links used would have to be typed in and then saved but when you use the same keyword again, they would automatically be hyperlinked to your saved URL when drafting out newer articles.

Conclusion

SEOPressor has been designed and developed by Daniel Tan, who is one of the greatest search engine optimization gurus in the world today. His products have always been known to over-deliver and for SEOPressor V5 — it’s no different. Not only has the wordpress SEO plugin become more mandatory with its upgrades, its new features definitely sets it apart from any other SEO plugin currently in the market.
