    Yes I do.  I direct them to more information not to a sales site thought.  I also use Facebook and Twitter to direct people who are interested to my articles like here on HubPages as well.

    I was posting a Hub to my Facebook page about once a week since I joined Hubpages, but Facebook recently disabled my account. There regulations said that it was breaching their rules to redirect Facebook Users to another website (Hubpages), and closed my account!

    Most definitely...I use both Facebook and Twitter to promote my handcrafted jewelry online business.  I set up a FB fan page and whenever I list a new item on Etsy, it goes directly to Facebook and whenever I post an entry to my blog, it posts on FB using the application Networkedblogs. I also notify fans of any promotions, events, or sales. 

    I love Twitter!  You can see the impact to your views almost immediately.  I use Twitterfeed to post a link to any new blog post and whenever I list a new item, I tweet it.  I am selective about who I follow and who follows me because it's my goal on Twitter to form a cohesive online sense of community.  So far it's working!  I also use some of the Twitter applications and tools to enhance my experience and see what is working and what is not.  I just posted a hub about it!

    Yes, they are very good tools to direct traffice. I have a site on parenting but to get a good ranking in SE is very tough, so I use Twitter and Facebook to get traffic. They are accountable for 40% of my traffic. I have like  4000 followors and each time when I post up a blog, I tweet or update my FB and I could instantly get traffice visiting my site.

    Yes, it is very good way to drive traffic to your site. But i found another way too. The site called fwebtraffic. It can bring 1 million traffic to your site in one month. I didnt believe this at first, but when i joined and started to get hits, then i realised that it is real. It is free to join and very easy to use.

    No.  Facebook is about friends not biz.  If one of my Facebook friends started filling up my screen with their biz, they would quickly be unfriended.

    Yes! I use facebook fan pages so I don't upset my entire virtual world of friends. The idea is that I don't consider it spamming if what I am telling them on my fan page is directly related to my niche. I promote my blog to my fan pages and temp them to sign up.

    On twitter the ways are countless. I recently finished being a Beta tester for Grant Ferrri's - Twitter Auto Pilot Profit Funnel. I learned all sorts of techniques that have really helped.

    Here is a Gold Nugget for you: use Twitters advanced search. It has geographical & contextual filtering that works great for almost any business. Use it to really make your keywords you search RELEVANT. You can really qualify the overwhelming amounts of conversations. Heres wher you wanna go:

    Anyways- run a web marketing business and my passion is online marketing. One of the hottest things online is social media. Here is a recent NO BS Product review I did the other day. It would be worth your time to look into:

    I hope this helped and feel free to email me any further questions at

    I think both can be used to direct traffic to your website. They are both some of the world's largest social media marketing website

    Personally when I've updated my blog or published a new ezine, I will publish those updates on twitter. If you have a large base of followers, this could really benefit you but that is not to say that a small group of followers won't either.

    In the long run, you can maintain a steady stream of followers or even add more followers. Twitter is your microblogging platform and if you know the potential from blogging, never underestimate twitter.

    You can also use Facebook to direct traffic through a few ways. One way is through their pay-per click adverts program, which works pretty much like Google Adwords but its cheaper. If you've blown a lot of money on google adwords try using facebook ads instead.

    Creating Facebook groups can also direct traffic to your website.  If your group happens to be interesting to a lot of people, it will spread throughout the whole network and you can pretty much imagine how it would work for your site. Facebook in short is viral in nature.

    I hope this helps. You might want to read more from an article here. … troduction

    You almost have to. Those two tools are some of the best social media platforms that can be used to direct traffic to your website. You can use both to direct individuals to more information on your site by displaying a very catchy header  along with the site's URL.

    In this period of intense online competition, you need these social tools more than ever to break through the clutter and to direct people to your website.
