Increase Website Traffic with Facebook

Maybe it was rust, or just getting excited about updating this blog again I made a mistake with my last Facebook Fan Pages article. I completely forgot to really sell you on the importance of it. By that I mean giving you some proof! Where’s the traffic? Well let me show you some stats of my most successful fan page.

Facebook Traffic

As I mentioned my Facebook Fan Page for Free Samples grows everyday, pretty organically. However to start it wasn’t as easy. I first really started seeing traffic in July, making it my 5th top traffic source (after Google, Bing, Yahoo and “Direct”). After that each month it has sent plenty of traffic.

July 2009

July 2009 had 436 visitors from Facebook. That works out to be about 14 visits per day coming from Facebook. Decent, but not enough.

August 2009

In August 2009 that number grew by 6 times! Facebook became my #2 top traffic source (behind Google) and came out to be 2,932 visits. If you want to break that down, it works out to be 94 visits per day (some days had nearly 200 visits).

September 2009

The great thing about these pages is they continue to grow. In the month of September Facebook easily was my #1 top traffic source. In September we received 6,211 visits from Facebook. That works out to be 207 visits PER DAY. The best day got nearly 400 Facebook visits.

With October I am anticipating even more as the page continues to grow. I will definitely keep this updated.

Did I convince you to make a Facebook Fan page yet?

    How to… set-up a fan page?

    I could definitely do a blog post about that if you are interested. I could also offer a service to you personally if you would want to work with me to get you set-up.

    I do have a facebook fan page created, with a little over 2,000 fans following it, but for me… I’ve had more traffic from a facebook group of a little bit of over 1,000 members, I guess it depends what you are working on. I just wish it was easier to send a message to all members on the facebook page as easy it is on the groups page.

    Till then,

    Well you sort of can. If you go to your page and on the left you can “send an update to fans”. This isn’t exactly a message, but it is sent to everyone, or you can target it by location etc. Have you tried this?

    Matthew, I’ve tried it, but… in order for the readers to read it, they have to hit the “update” button, which is located near the “friend requests area”, the big downside… is there is no email message sent to the people on the fanpage. If each “fan” in the fan page received a message via email, like they do if it was a facebook group, it would be so much more powerful!

    Do you know what I am talking about?

    Till then,

    I know exactly what you mean, but doing updates and trying to get those that may not be following your page, or have it “hidden”. It’s not the best, but something.

    Thanks for showing your growth laid out on a chart. I have a facebook fanpage for my blog, and my growth has been limited, but it’s nice to see there seems to be a point that a fan page on facebook can reach a “viral” stage after a short amount of time.

    Facebook is a hit this 2010 and also last year when it became a hit in many countries. It spreads the info you need all over the world not just in the US. We should keep updating with FB pages.
