Boost Your Social Media Traffic

The Social Media Hype

Social media has long since made its impact on the internet world. It has made itself so important, that Google itself has even put this into the algorithm for page rank. If you don’t think that social media is an important way to get your site noticed, then you probably shouldn’t be blogging anyway!

Here are some reasons why you should be connected to Social Media:

  • One in every nine people on Earth is on Facebook ( This number is calculated by dividing the planets 6.94 billion people by Facebook’s 750 million users)
  • People spend 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook
  • Each Facebook user spends on average 15 hours and 33 minutes a month on the site
  • More than 250 million people access Facebook through their mobile devices
  • More than 2.5 million websites have integrated with Facebook
  • 30 billion pieces of content is shared on Facebook each month
  • 300,000 users helped translate Facebook into 70 languages
  • People on Facebook install 20 million “Apps” every day
  • YouTube has 490 million unique users who visit every month (as of February 2011)
  • YouTube generates 92 billion page views per month (These YouTube stats don’t include videos viewed on phones and embedded in websites)
  • Users on YouTube spend a total of 2.9 billion hours per month (326,294 years)
  • Wikipedia hosts 17 million articles
  • Wikipedia authors total over 91,000 contributors
  • People upload 3,000 images to Flickr (the photo sharing social media site) every minute
  • Flickr hosts over 5 billion images
  • 190 million average  Tweets per day occur on Twitter (May 2011)
  • Twitter is handling 1.6 billion queries per day
  • Twitter is adding nearly 500,000 users a day
  • Google+ has more than 25 million users
  • Google+ was the fastest social network to reach 10 million users at 16 days (Twitter took 780 days and Facebook 852 days)

So, you really should be involved in social media for the mere fact that social media gets you traffic!

Social Media Aggravation

social mediaThere are literally tons of social media platforms that you can become members of! Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, Plurk, Stumble Upon, Pinterest, MySpace,…the list goes on! I don’t have time to go into listing all of them, you already know! But here is the aggravation. As a blogger, you already have a full time job with getting everything that needs to be done to your site accomplished every day. Maybe you have thought about getting involved with social media, but to squeeze all of these into your busy schedule is not a top priority! Just keeping your profile updated to where people are more likely to see you is a job in itself!

So What Do You Do?

I get over 100,000 hits per month on social media alone…the best part is, I NEVER log in to do my updates! I have time to do what I need to do to my site, or mow my yard, find my wife’s keys, etc. This is because I have figured out the best way to manipulate social media!

If you really sat down and tried to keep up with the updates that you need to do ever 10 minutes or so to stay in front of the potential visitors eyes, then you would never accomplish anything!

Social Media Dashboards

This is how I stay connected with those visitors that I recieve every month. I use these dashboards!

Twitter is the most important one I belive. Most of my traffic comes from Twitter, and you know how difficult it can be to stay connected to everyone on Twitter! Here is what I use:

  • Tweet Adder-This platform basically leaves Twitter updates whenever you want them! All you have to do is set it and social mediaforget it, and you are ready to go!  You can save your tweets to use, so there is no re-typing.  Also has a link shortener embedded into it so no searching for something to shorten these.  This is a powerful tool to use for Twitter!
  • Social Oomph-This not only allows you to schedule updates to Twitter, but alos allows you to update to Facebook, LinkedIN, Plurk, etc. In a sense, you can just about update to every social media platform with Social Oomph. I would recommend this one to the blogger who doesn’t have a large budget to spend on something like this. Best of all, it does update to more social media platforms than the other. However, if you are a power Tweeter, then Tweet Adder would be the one for you!

Get with the program! Start your social media strategies today and get more traffic than you have ever dreamed of getting! With this strategy, you don’t have to be ranked high in Google to get traffic! Every time I set up a new blog, I start this program. Usually within 3 days I am getting over 1,000 hits per month, and it just goes up from there.

Being ranked is important, don’t get me wrong, but with these platform on social media scheduling, you DON’T have to be ranked to get the traffic! Very powerful tool indeed! There are a few things that a blogger needs to invest in, and this is definitely one of them. With the power of these social media dashboards, you will be making money in no time!
