Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are a powerful way of increasing your page rankings and build a following for your website.
With Twitter we can add ‘Tweet’ buttons to your articles and a Tweet will be created and all of your followers will see it. Then they can ‘retweet’ it to their follows so you can have your article in front of thousands of people within a couple of hours.
With Facebook we can set up a ‘page’ for your article and put a ‘Share’ button at the bottom of your Articles. The article will automatically appear on your Facebook page and all the members of your page can also share it. Again it is possible for your article to be seen by thousands of people within a few hours.
All you have to do is write an article yo share it on your preferred social networking platform.
Obviously we need to get you a following. This is started by putting a Facebook and/or Twitter icon on your website which links through to your accounts. The visitor can then Click ‘Follow’ on Twitter or ‘Like’ on Facebook and you have your following. Your ‘tweets’ or ‘likes’ will then appear in their feed when they log on and they can then click through to your article.
Facebook and Twitter are not the only ones, there are many more out there which work in a similar way and each one has a difference audience.
If you have an existing website and need some help in getting onto the social networking scene, please give us a call. All new sites we build have this built in if you require it.
