How to promote your blog using Facebook

Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites in the world. There are ways to increase your blog's visibility using Facebook. I found the following ways to promote my blog using Facebook.

  1. Your profile is the most visited part, related to you, on Facebook. So, don't forget to add your blog url to your profile.
  2. Publish your new blog post links on your wall regularly. Try to publish the links of your best posts only instead of each and every post link.
  3. There are many application on facebook that can be integrated with your profile. Use some applications that can promote your blog. NetworkedBlogs, SociaRSS, Simplaris Blogcas are a few of them.
  4. Join relevant groups and pages on the topic of your blog content and share your blog links there.
  5. You can make your own pages about your blog and promote them. Whenever you publish a new post, it will appear in your Facebook profile. For this to work, you have to do the following after creating the page.
    1. Go to the “notes” tab at the top of the page.
    2. Select “Import A Blog” in the Notes Setting section.
    3. Enter the url of your blog and press “Start Importing” button.
    4. Facebook will import the content of the RSS feed for you to preview. If everything looks OK, then go ahead and press the “Continue” button. Your RSS feed will now be automatically imported into your “Notes” section.
    5. You can link this page to your twitter account.
  6. You can advertise on Facebook with a small investment.

  1. I am new to the blogging community, but not the seo game. I'm not great, but I kinda know a little bit.
    I have my blog on my facebook, but its not my facebook. People can track back to your facebook and find out who you are. I don't want to upset some crazy blogger and he become some stalker out to kill me. Idk if you did this, but I set up a fake facebook. Still have pictures and some about me stuff, but not my pic. Then I post with that and I post on fan pages. Not spamming it like crazy. Just post a little.
    I hope that was some decent advice to add to yours =)

  2. Hi KyAus,

    You are right. Even if you post with a fake account, it does help the blog you are talking about on your facebook account.
