You love facebook don’t you? I have been on facebook for 3 years now and have done things to get traffic from facebook. I used groups, links, discussions an now facebook fan page to drive traffic. But what you know, these are the 6 shockingly evil things about facebook traffic
1 It sends awesomely NOOB visitors
Hey, I’m not talking about you! But as a website publisher you should see that the amount of visitors coming to your site are noob comparing to your blog readers. The users know only to update status but cannot type their name and email to comment.
2 High BOUNCE rate!
Ever imagined how long they stay on your site? Less than 10 seconds and even low, yeah this is true and can hurt your SEO rankings.
3 They have ZERO interest on your content
Unless you write about the boyfriend of Miley Cyrus, they won’t get interested in your tech or blogging topic. Even big tech blogs have less users on their facebook fan page.
4 Facebook users get lost into your site
It doesn’t matters how smart your website navigation is, users will get lost into your site and they will soon close your site.
5 Traffic doesn’t converts that easily
If you are paying for the facebook traffic, then you must know this! To bring the traffic and sign them off for your ebook is just like a war to win. That’s why people are more likely to invest in google adwords than facebook ads.
6 They are not INFLUENTIAL
You think facebook traffic will promote your site? No way! Majority of the facebook users spend their time chatting and browsing pics. So even better to spend some time helping new bloggers who are starting out blogging.
Have your say!
- Are you on facebook?
- Are you trying to bring visitors from facebook?
- How are they converting into your site?
