1.) Add Open Graph tags to site header.

Open graph tags are those mark up used by Facebook as well as  Twitter which allows your site to communicate with the Facebook site and allows Facebook to extract site meta data, and structured data. If you have already used it, you can check it here : Facebook Lint (Open Graph Tags checking) tool.
You can use the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin to add Open graph tags of both twitter and Facebook to your site!

2.) Install Facebook log-in for your own site using Facebook app.

If you haven’t made a Facebook app for your site already, it’s high time you do so. It’s very easy to create an App for your website.
Firstly, Log-In to Facebook with your account. In the search bar above type “How to create an app“.

For the more easy way, you can simply go here and read this guide by Facebook.

And now for my way, I will tell you how to create a basic app for your Fanpage/website.

Now after following the steps in above image go to the plugin you use, or use the official Facebook Plugin for WordPress. Transfer the API information and check if it’s connecting properly or not.

BEGINNER’S BEWARE : Only use the API once in a website. If you call the Facebook API many times on the same website it can create problems.

3.) Use Facebook pages to draw traffic.

If you haven’t made a Facebook Fan-page for your blog yet, then go away. Don’t read this post any further.
Well, jokes apart. It’s the first step any blogger should follow. A Facebook Fanpage with decent amount of “LIKES” can generate significant traffic daily, if handled the right way.

Create a Fanpage for your website. To increase virality use image posts and use links of your site’s post in the description. You can also tag the maximum no. of people i.e 50 to increase the post’s reach. If properly done, this step alone can bring 100-200 loyal visitors to your site daily, keeping the estimation of likes to be around 1000.  The greater the number of likes you accumulate, the greater will be the buzz you generate. You can either work on your fan-page yourselves or hire some experts to do so.

TIP : You can also say free brothers and sisters  to work for you on the Fanpage in exchange of candies! Lol, just kidding.

4.) Link your Facebook Fan page and twitter account.

Linking your Facebook Fanpage to twitter account is easy. And it saves you the hassle of putting the same posts on both the social networks over and over again. You post on your page and it gets tweeted in real time. Now that’s smart work.
Follow the steps in the image given below.

So now that you are done, and everything is up and running, it’s time to go social! Share as much as you can, spread the word. Who knows you may strike gold someday!
