Ultimate tips to increase your blog traffic on social media

Hello fellow bloggers and would be bloggers!

Thanks for dropping in  today and a very big welcome to those who are here for the first time. I hope you find it cool here and keep returning.

It's been a while I updated the blogging section of my blog and I decided to share tips on how to share your posts on social media for more traffic.

Writing a blog post is one thing and having people read it is another. Traffic is very important to a blogger. Infact, traffic means everything to a blogger.

Your posts are written to be read. So maximise your chances of receiving traffic by using the social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google and Bloglovin' are all gateways to your site for traffic to your blog.

Here is how to use them!

how to promote your blog posts on social media

Facebook

Millions of users use Facebook. Sharing your post on this platform is exposing your blog to millions of people as well. Share your blog on your facebook account, on your facebook page and in facebook groups you belong. But you have to make sure that the group corresponds to what your blog is talking about. Also make sure you read the rules of the group to know where your post fits in. 

Twitter

To use Twitter effectively, try to share your posts with images. Use Google Chrome extensions like Tweetshot which you can download for free. Buffer and Hootsuite also have extensions that can help you share posts with their images.

There is also the site called Justretweet where you can share your tweets for others to retweet for some points and you earn points by retweeting the tweets of others. It is like a give and take system to make tweets from your posts popular.

Pinterest

Pinterest enables you to pin and share photos of the things you love with others. what is great is you can find those who love the same things as you. Pinning your blog post photos on Pinterest will expose it to those who love the topics of your pins. To increase your traffic you have to follow others and pin interesting pins on your boards.

Make your blog pins interesting by writing the title of your post on the image you are going to pin from your post. This attracts people to click and go to your blog to know more about it therefore bringing more traffic to your blog.

Group boards are also very effective to draw traffic because many more people visit these boards. Pin on boards according to the theme or title of the board. Add a description to the image to enable it to be found easily.

It is also imprtant to use vertically long images. Some group boards prefer that you pin vertically long images.

Google+

Share your posts on Google+ through your google profile and pages.

Join communities that correspond to the topics of your blog and share your post there. These communities have rules and guidelines so make sure you read them first.

Share posts that correspond to the community's objectives and subcategories.

Linkedin

Sharing your posts on Linkedin exposes them to another world. The world of professionals. Post what you think you are comfortable with because it shows your blogging skills and boosts your professional profile too.

Some tools can enable you to automatically post on LinkedIn and you can also do that manually by going to the publish section.

You can write a summary of your post or the first paragraphes and insert the link to the post on your blog to enable the readers to go read the rest of the post on your blog. this method is very common on Linkedin to draw traffic to blogs.

Bloglovin'

Create a Bloglovin' account and add the follow button to your blog. When you claim your blog, your blog posts will automatically be posted on Bloglovin'.

You acn also activate the share on facebook and twitter options to automatically share your posts on twitter and Facebook.

Heart It

Share your images on your Heart It account from your blog and others will find your blog through your shared images.

Instagram

This media is mentioned now not because it brings less traffic to your blog, but because it is the most recent media and I am still learning to use it. If you can use it well, then it will bring a lot of traffic to your blog.

So far, what I do on Instagram is put the link to my latest post in my bio. It is also important to inform your followers when you publish new posts and ask them to read your latest post by clicking the link in your bio. You can also post images from the post you are promoting and tell people what the post is all about.

You don't have to be on these many social media accounts at the same time especially if you are just starting to blog. You can concentrate on growing a few and open more accounts with time.

make use of the social media and get your posts out there.
