After setting up a web hosting plan and launching a website, a common question of many webmasters is how to bring more visitors to their website. The first thing that often comes to mind is using search engine optimization (SEO) to get their site to rank in Google. While SEO is a very effective way to bring targeted traffic to a site, it is also a slow process. Getting a website to rank in Google can sometimes take several months. A quicker way to bring targeted traffic to a new website is through social media.
Here are three basic strategies that will help you get a new site discovered through popular social networks.
Social media is a great way to connect to people who have similar interests and send targeted traffic to your website. As you get more involved you will see more traffic come from the social networks that you are active on. The added bonus to this is the impact social signals have on search engine rankings. Google is using social signals to measure the quality of websites and website content. Actively promoting content on social media can help improve your search engine rankings and send you even more targeted traffic.
Check out this video of Matt Cutts, from Google, explaining how they use social media for search results.
