Whether it’s a school going lad or a Rich Businessman, people all around the world have now one platform in common and that is, undoubtedly, The Facebook. According the latest statistics, there are above 9 million active users that log in to their accounts on daily basis. Just imagine how large your potential traffic would be, if you learnt the art of diverting some juice of the Facebook Traffic to your blog.
Here are 5 simple things you need to do and you will see how Facebook will work out for you and for your Blog.
Create an Attractive Fan Page
It is a must-to-do task for all the bloggers to create a Facebook Fan page the moment you are done with the final touches of your blog construction. Fan Pages work like a magic in this case. It plays multiple roles for you where you really do not have to invest anything but only some time. If your blog has a Fan page on Facebook, it will automatically market your blog, promoting your niche. This is to keep in mind that your potential readers are in search of such fan pages now because they find it easier to keep a track of latest happenings in that domain via Facebook, which is their must-to-check platform. By creating your blog’s Fan page, you are actually letting the world know that your blog exists.
I stated “Attractive” in my caption here, and I’ m sure you are wise enough to understand its significance. You need to ask yourself that what you really want your potential traffic to assume about your blog from its fan Page. Always give a savvy look to your page, giving it a professional, yet effective look so that the ones, who visit it, get curious enough to find more about you.
Choose and appropriate display picture that somehow is related to your blog with a well selected cover photo. You are required to be extra careful about the description that you give about your blog, because that is the second introduction of your blog, first being the layout and title of your fan page.
Share Quality Content-regularly!
Creating a Fan Page gives you no surety that a single visitor would visit your site, until and unless you work truly hard to keep your fan page active. It’s your hard work on your Fan Page that decides how many potential followers will follow you to your blog.
To keep your page lively, take help of some popular images, share videos that might grab huge lot of followers to your page. You must do some searching to share unusual facts on your Fan page, take an example of “what the fuck Facts” page. Go through it thoroughly and you will see that the posts its admin shares with the followers are way too interesting for them, so much so that within the first minute of its post, there are above 100 likes for it. However, thinking from an admin perspective, you need to work really hard, bringing out your creativity to share things that people do not know and what to learn more about them via your Page.
Once you get a hold of few followers, you have now a bigger objective to deal with. Be creative enough and generate your own content related to your niche. Promote your ideas on your forum and let people know what you blog actually is.
Link your Blog with your Fan page and always add a “Facebook Like” widget in your blog. This is important enough not to be missed! Like your posts on your blog and share your articles on Facebook as soon as it gets published.
Play With Timings-Enjoy More Traffic

It is obvious that none of the 9 million users would start following you the next day when you would share statuses like, “view my blog”, “I m a blogger”, “visit my site and follow it”, isn’t it?
