10 Ways to Use Social Media to Increase Ranking

Tip #3: Install Social Media plugins on Your Blogging Platform (i.e. Blogger, WordPress, Typepad).

This next tip stems from Tip #2. If one of your readers enjoys your entry, he or she may want to share it with his or her friends. However, if there are no social media plugins installed, that individual may find it tedious to actually copy and paste the URL into their feed. With that said, if you have social media plugins installed on your blogging platform, your readers will be more inclined to share the posts with their friends. This, in turn, will drive more traffic to your blog as well as increase your ranking.

Tip #4: Don’t be boring.

In order to grab your reader’s attention, you must have a hook – or, a sentence that can immediately grab the reader’s attention. Use exclamation marks and capital letters here and there. Try not to write “mundane, essay-like” posts on your Facebook page. Many individuals log onto social media platforms to have a good time; however, if they see a post that resembles that of school and work… they may not even read the post. We only have a couple of seconds to grab the reader’s attention, so it’s imperative that we jazz up our posts a bit by being humorous. For example, if a Series Regular is leaving a TV show, we can say “OMG! Rumor has it that  ________ is leaving The Biggest Loser?! Is this really happening?” Posts like these will stir up a bit of controversy.

Tip #5: Ask your followers about the topics they are interested in, and then write an entry regarding those topics.

Log onto your Twitter or Facebook, and ask your followers, “What topics are you interested in? Do you have any questions for me?” Then, when you receive a few questions, you can write a post that answers those questions.

Tip #6: Host giveaways on your preferred social media platform.

Professional YouTubers generally like to host giveaways, as a way of thanking their subscribers for supporting them throughout the years. You can also do the same on your blog! For example, you can give away a $25 Amazon gift card to the reader who provides the most thoughtful comment or to the reader who provides the funniest comment. Giveaways are usually a very popular method of attracting more visitors because people enjoy receiving free things.
