'Oh No! Not another post on how to use social networking sites'
Well I am not going to do that, i.e. point out all those obvious and rehashed tips that every other blog master has published
Instead I want to share with you a pleasant and profitable experience I recently had
First you should know that I have blogs that are mainly business blogs for example this one... and then I have blogs that are purely for my entertainment
The entertainment blogs are in areas that I find interesting. Hobbies so to speak
Anyway on one of my hobby blogs I wrote about a popular TV show. It's a show I like and hey I had something to say!
It's funny when you are writing without monetization in mind, the content can turn out pretty good
Anyway a few days later I noticed I had about 700 hits and rising. Thought it was a glitch in my traffic analysis. Usually the blog only gets about 50 uniques a day if that
More traffic analysis later and the answer is revealed. A big personality on Facebook had put a link to my post on their account!!
One link and a few days later has resulted in a few thousand uniques to the blog
Who says social networking doesn't work
The irony is, I hadn't done any of the networking. Go figure
