|My Social Media Site Traffic Stats And Tips|
|Monday, 25 October 2010 00:00|
Let me start right off by saying that while I believe in the power using social media as a means to traffic to your site, it will never replace the ability to get tons of traffic from search engines. With that said, I thought I'd provide some insight into my social traffic. Here's a snapshot of my sites social media traffic from the last thirty days (courtesy of unilyzer).
There are tons of articles on how to drive traffic to a site with twitter and facebook but for me its been pretty simple. For me its all about growing my network by engaging with the community and offering useful insights and resources. I've also utilized great tools like twitterfeed, hootsuite, and dlvr.it to distribute my content across my profiles. Pat Flynn has written some great articles on using facebook to drive traffic including the bloggers guide to facebook.
My stumbleupon traffic has come organically by just being an active stumbleupon user and submitting releavant websites I like. DoshDosh has put together an extensive guide to StumbleUpon that's well worth the read.
I've been a big evangelist of linkedin, and not just as a B2B and networking tool, but as a great potential traffic driver. Do a search for "using social media to drive traffic to your site" and you'll find little to nothing about linkedin. Just the usual suspects, twitter, facebook stumbleupon, etc. CMO.com and 97th Floor even compiled a guide on the good and bad ways to leverage social media sites which I found to be extremely insightful but gave linkedin a "bad" rating as a site traffic driver. As you can see from my screenshot, linkedin has become my second largest social media traffic driver and my hope is to dispel the myth and show that it can indeed be a great platform to drive people to your site. You can read my 10 Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Blog Using LinkedIn for some tips on how to use this powerful platform.
Obviously results are going to vary between sites based on the type of site and size of your social media network. I will offer some follow up posts regarding my stats as well as additional tips and tricks on what I've found to be successful.
