Getting More Traffic To Your Blog By Using A Share This Button

Written by admin on . Posted in Traffic Generation

Many people who start blogs do so in order to try to earn a little extra money, but without targeted traffic you won’t be making any profit. People are always trying to find new ways of getting more blog site visitors. The biggest problem with this type of trial and error is that they hardly work and people never take into consideration what has been proven to do the job. This is why I decided to go over how important it is to just add a “share this” button on each one of your blog posts. I will also explain to you how this button may end up taking your blog from nothing to getting steady targeted visitors daily.

A “share this” button is a very simple way for 1 visitor to share your blog post with many hundreds or even thousands of other people. I am sure somewhere along the line you have been on a blog and you observed a bookmarking button. The reason these people have them on their blogs is because it is a way to enable visitors share the post with their buddies.

While you can find buttons that will allow you to post to twitter or even facebook you will want to look for a button that has several sites listed. By just having one button that only allows your visitors to post to one particular social networking site can give you a small boost but you will want more. Ideally you will want a multi-site “share this” button that won’t limit the sites that your page might be posted to. At the very least you should add a button for all the preferred social sites. You will need to keep in mind that everyone on the Internet is different and belong to completely different social networking sites so you really do not want to limit their options.

WordPress users have it easy because there are already many plugins made to allow for a easy “share this” button to be added. Some of the plugins will only include a handful of social networking sites, while others may have the possibility to include 30 or more sites. What you are really looking for is a “share this” button that may include every single social networking site you can imagine.

Here I am going to show you an example of exactly what can take place when you have this button set up. In this example we are going to say that a single visitor shared your post with their good friends on one of the social networking web sites. They use the “share this” button and presto, they just touted your post to 50 of their own friends. If just 8 of those people went to your blog and really liked your post you just received 8 more visitors. And if just 3 of them share your post on several other social sites by using the “share this” button, you now have other people spotlighting your post. Now this specific post may be endorsed to 150 or more people. From there lets say 20 or 30 men and women stop by and 10 of those people share it along with others. And this can actually keep going on for a pretty long time, so one person spreading your post can turn into many hundreds or even thousands of visitors.

By simply adding a small little plugin like this you can easily start getting a lot more visitors. And when you are getting the website traffic you need the money won’t be far behind.
