Facebook, Twitter, Google+ And...


Recommended Posts

For my site, I only have two. Soon to be three.

 

I've had both Twitter and Facebook pages and buttons for my site for about 3 months. I'm going to continue the trend and make a Google Plus page for it as well though.

 

Do you have any utility to track where you visitors come from? I did a bit of work on Facebook to promote my site and there were some referrals that came from Facbook.

Just twitter and facebook to me honest. The reason being I feel that for an hour spent promoting my site on facebook its worth weeks of promoting on something like reddit for example

I sort of do have a utility for that.

 

Have you ever heard of Statcounter.com? It basically is just a data collector on of your site that shows where your visitors come in, where they leave from, what time they do it, etc.

 

You can use that to see if any people are coming from your Facebook page or any place else.

In reality I only use one social networking site, LinkedIn. It has been very good to me. ;) I have a presence on Facebook and Twitter, but don't use them. I need to start using Google Plus since Google Places has been moved or changed to Google Plus Local because of my business.

Since you're on LinkedIn, I think I should warn you to check your account to see if anything is tampered with. I say this because LinkedIn was just hacked and millions of accounts were compromised.

No social networking sites for my forum. I'm afraid that would take away site activity.

 

End of the day people use them whether you promote on them or not. However the payoff tends to be better if you have them as people flick between the 2

Thanks. I heard about the breach earlier today. It took awhile for LinkedIn to confirm the breach. Fortunately, my account was okay.

Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, Reddit, Digg, StumbleUpon.

Not working very well. I hardly get any traffic from them. Facebook might give me the highest among them, but it's still next to nothing and the conversion rate is next to 0.

I only use Facebook and Twitter for my websites. I believe that putting too many of these sites on my website decreases its look. Since I have a flash website, I just want to keep it clean and make it look dazzling. As for advertising, I advertise on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube. I believe these websites have more than enough people to wonder onto my website.

That's actually a good idea, not to have so many of the buttons all over your website. While all the potential of the extra traffic may be a great thing, I can't imagine myself having a long line of button upon button, upon button, etc. It would look horrible.

I use Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Digg, Stumbleupon and Pinterest. Earlier I used to place plugins like AddThis or Sexy Bookmarks on my sites but then I found that people were not really using them. So I changed my strategy and now include a bare minimum buttons on my sites.

Re:LinkedIn. How do we know whether our password has been compromised? Is there any tool we can use to check this?

Wouldn't it just be easier and safer to change the password?

I only use Facebook & twitter to post updates. We do have a Google+ page but i feel like G+ is a waste of time half the time. I sometimes use stumble upon and other sites like that to push out content and backlinks. :)

 

The only plus I can see to google plus is that anyone who has a gmail account will almost certainly see the links as the alerts can be seen each time they check their email

If it was you would have received an email from LinkedIn asking you to change your password, as I did.
