Top 4 social networking sites to get traffic from!

Setting up a website is not a very difficult process but getting traffic to that site requires time and knowledge. How do you convince people to keep visiting your site? How do you even tell them that your site even exists? There are several ways to accomplish that. Some are more time consuming while others show quick progress. Some are difficult and require advanced knowledge of marketing while others can be understood by kids. To narrow the list down, I am going to focus on social networking sites today and talk about how you can drive traffic to your websites from these types of sites.

Social Networking Sites

First of all, what are social networking sites? Here is a definition that I am sure you will find helpful:
A social network service focuses on building online communities of people who share interests and/or activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others. Most social network services are web based and provide a variety of ways for users to interact, such as e-mail and instant messaging services.

Enough talking! Let's start with the list. Here are top 4 social networking sites that you should definitely use to drive traffic to your website.
  1. Facebook - It is one of the most famous social networking sites and has millions of users. You probably use it already to communicate with your friends. Why not use it for marketing? I am not asking you to go to your friends' walls and start posting links. But you can use the "share" feature to post any link that you like on your own profile page. Once it is public, you friends will get to see the link and will visit it if they like it. Share links from your site and see the traffic increase!
  2. Twitter - This site is like a mini version of facebook. Through twitter you can let your followers know what you are doing. The best thing is that you can use links in your status updates! Create a profile for your website on Twitter and then put a link on your site so that people can follow you on twitter. Then, whenever you write a new article, just let your followers know through Twitter.
  3. Forums - There are several forums that you can use to get traffic and that's why I didn't specify any particular forum. Choose a forum related to the niche of your site and use it for traffic. How? First, be active at the forum and get to know other members. Place a link to your website in your signature. If someone wants to learn about something and you just wrote an article on that topic few days ago, let the person know about your article!
  4. Social Bookmarking Sites - Again, there are so many social bookmarking sites that it is hard to just pick one. Also, some bookmarking sites work better for one site than another. For example, StumbleUpon works more for me than Reddit. Just like with forums, you should try to get to know the community at these bookmarking sites. Only then you will be able to get noticable traffic.
I hope you liked my list and got some ideas about how to promote your site for free! Leave a comment if you have any questions or just want to leave some feedback.
