Google cannot be everyone’s source for getting traffic on their blog/website.
And for those who find it difficult to do SEO for their website/blog, then social media sites like Facebook or Twitter can be recommended for them.
In this article, I am going to discuss about some tips to get traffic from a popular social networking site, Facebook.
Below are tips that provide you the exact knowledge about using Facebook as a traffic source.
Killer Ways to Use Facebook as a Traffic Source
1. Facebook Pages
The best way, if any, to get traffic on your site/blog. People have been using this method for a long time, and this method has been proved very effective for them.
Although, Facebook may let you reach only 10% of your fans in their news feed, though, Facebook pages are far more used for getting traffic than any other social media site.
Facebook is getting very powerful day by day about the content being displayed in users news feed.
So if you want to reach more peoples news feed then make sure to provide useful and informative content to the users.
If you still can’t reach more users and want to reach more users than use Facebook ads. But don’t run Facebook boosted posts. As they have not proved useful for anyone in the marketing industry.
Must use Facebook Power Editor to manage your Facebook ad campaigns.
One more tip to reaching more users is to post on time when there are a lot of users online. 5 Pm EST is the most preferred time for posting as there are many users are hungry for some good posts.
2. Facebook Comments
Above all, if you want to get traffic from other people pages too then try to follow and like every page in your niche. And set your news feed to show you Recent Posts instead of Top Posts.
Now whenever you will open your news feed, you will see the most recent posts from the pages in your niche. After that, comment something useful and informative according to your niche and leave your website link in regards. (Make sure to use Facebook as your websites Facebook page. Ex. You can check my Facebook page.)

Note that this technique wont work for you if you are commenting on a post that has been posted a while ago. Try to comment only on posts that are just posted 5 or 10 minutes ago. Also don’t post same comment on every pages post because Facebook can ban your account for spamming comments.
3. Facebook Groups
After pages, groups are the best way to promote and giving heads up about your content to the people.
Before starting to get traffic from Facebook groups, make sure that all the groups you joined are related to your industry/niche.
Now start posting your links in these groups. But don’t directly just post links in these groups. First pick a best featured image related to your industry, upload it and then post your links with some text(Your Article Heading) attached to that image.
Try to post like this in many groups as much as you can. But give some breaks between posting. (Facebook can also ban you for frequent posting in groups.)
Also don’t forget to read the posting rules of particular Facebook group in which you are going to post.
Now sit back and relax. Your traffic will be there on your blog/website in no time. (But please, write the best and useful content for your visitors before posting.)
4. Build Relationships
Don’t just keep posting your links, build some relationships too. Start following people in your niche. Along with liking their posts, keep commenting some good and informational stuff regarding to their post.
With the passing time, they will start noticing you and you will build a good relationship with them.
Now soon after you know that you have built a good relationship with them, start approaching them in their inbox.
After some formal talk, request them to put your article/content link on their wall. In this way, his/her followers or friends will also start seeing your content and eventually you will get huge traffic down the road.
With this powerful source for getting traffic, one can’t neglect the importance of Facebook. Just try to avoid spamming and posting non-useful content.
And if you follow all the guidelines provided by Facebook, then in no time Facebook can flood your site with tons of traffic. Good luck!
