Boosting your traffic doesnâ€™t have to be a lonely endeavor.Â There are social media sites that exist to help introduce you to an audience just waiting to get to know you.Â More and more social media networking and social news sites are coming up. Sites like Netscape, Digg, Stumbleupon,etc let user add unlimited number of content and also in turn gives a huge database of content for people whoÂ looking for these contents.
On these sites users add the link, postÂ title andÂ short description of the originalÂ post which is then linked back to the original source. Though you have unlimited chance of adding your content,Â you will be only noticed when other users find it valuable and vote for your content. Once you get enough votes or diggs (Digg.com) then you have fair chance of coming at the top of these sites which will then bring you unlimited traffic.
Here are three of them:
Digg is one of the top favorite social media sites because of its quick response.Â If you have a quality article or excellent story on this site, you can expect hundreds or even thousands of visitors clicking on your webpage within 24 hours.Â Once you’ve written an article or a story, send it to Digg.Â People who read your content will ‘digg’ it (vote for it) if they like what you’ve done.Â You can include a Digg button on your blog or site to ensure that your readers can vote for you.
Stumble Upon is another social media site that can help boost your site’s traffic.Â This site functions like social bookmarking, in that users can ‘tag’ certain sites (including yours) to indicate whether they like it or not.Â If they like it, they’ll share it with other users, give it a ‘thumbs up’ or include a link to your webpage on their site.Â This will help increase the number of people that your site will be exposed to.
Netscape boosts traffic in much the same way as Digg does â€“ by getting your content judged by internet surfers.Â Once you have submitted your story or content to Netscape, people will have access to it and then vote for it.Â You’ll find yourself in the Netscape homepage if you receive a minimum of 10 votes within the first 10 minutes your story appears.Â
As a webmaster / blogger you write articles,Â your articles are highly opitmized for search enginesÂ but now the question comes how will you promote itÂ to your fellow bloggers? How about you? Are you utilizing Social Media Sites to boost your traffic?
