    Hi bro.
    Nice to see your post here. Social media traffic always worked(still working) for me. But only one question: How to get twitter traffic back to our sites? I really tried many ways to get traffic from it, but never got. Hope you help regarding this.

    • Hi Rahul,
      Well, That’s a interesting question.

      Unlike most of the other places you can get traffic for free, Twitter is a microblogging platform, which means that there are restrictions on the number of characters in a message. Therefore, you need to be concise in your Tweets and use your space wisely. In addition to being concise, here are some more tips to help you get traffic from Twitter:

      1. Make your Twitter profile interesting
      2. Pick a niche-targeted username
      3. Put your site/blog URL in your profile
      4. Send the link to your profile to your friends, coworkers, and acquaintances
      5. Search for Twitter users with similar interests
      6. Socialize on Twitter as much as you can
      7. Tweet regularly
      8. Don’t spam 😉
      9. Take advantage of Twitterfeed
      10. Make Twitter Search love you
      11. Add Twitter gadgets to your site

      These are some of the main ways in which you can get traffic from Twitter. If you are creative and if you monitor what’s going on on Twitter and what new Twitter gadgets are released, you will certainly find more ways to drive traffic from Twitter to your site.

  8. Hi
    social media is a best way to increase traffic in our blog i used to crate fan page on Facebook and share on twits but other three way i didn’t know thanks for this information.

  9. The most important aspect of social media is that you need to benchmark, test and verify the results. Most people probably don’t know how good social media can be for their business, and many don’t realize how effective social media is. Without a way of measuring the success of social media, they are blindly using that form of communication without realizing the effect it has with their customers.

  10. Nice points, But Pinterest is useful if you’re using attractive images and infographic on your blog on regular basis or else you won’t able to generate traffic from there.

  11. Hi Amrik,

    I believe that social media plays a huge role in getting blog traffic, but I don’t think that traffic from social media will become loyal readers of our blog. It is good to create a Facebook page, Twitter profile and Pinterest board with our blog name to be viewed there and to get indexed in search engines.
    Do you think that visitors from social media websites will bookmark and will come back to read our post?

  13. Well, social media is great way for blogger to increase reader. There are many social media sites available and it’s hard to decide which one it effective. As above mentioned, Facebook and Twitter are best so we will get maximum exposure through these platforms. According to me, blogger also have to create profile on many other social media sites as StumbleUpon, Pinterest and Google+.
