We work hard to build up our Facebook Fan Page, yet when we post information most of our readers don’t get to see it. There has been some talk about how to get around this, but does it work? Should you leave your blog link in the comments section?

Leaving Your Link in the Comments VS. In Your Status Update

Bloggers have been facing a major challenge. Ever since Facebook dramatically changed their EdgeRank algorithm and fewer of our posts are being seen by those who have liked our brand pages, our total reach and engagement has dropped. Now I know some bloggers have been able to beat Facebook at their own game. That’s awesome! But for the rest of us, Facebook is like a giant elephant blocking the entrance. One workaround that I see a lot of fellow bloggers using is placing links to their blog posts in the first comment after posting an update. Is this really effective?

  • Pacific Gas and Electric have a scyeme which offers
    cash incentives to companies which use energy-efficient technology
    to reduce their electricity consumption. In any city with a large Mexican-American population, you should be able to fid one or more of these shops
    easily. For those people living undeer a rock it was set up inn 1998 and it owns the popular traffic volume monitoring
    application and site Alexa.

  • When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    from now on each time a comment is added I get four emails with the
    exact same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove
    me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  • highlight or bold important terms and concepts. Highlighting and bolding key concepts naturally draws the readers attention to them, making it easier for them to extract key post concepts. Failure to do so on the other hand means the reader has to work much harder to find the key concepts, and dramatically reduces the likelihood they actually will!

    Why people still make use of to read news papers when in this technological world
    all is existing on web? There may very well be many websites that offer your

    This was a really quality post.I wasn’t aware of the many ripples and depth to this story until I surfed here through Google! Great job. Chexsystems

    I agree with tammigirl. Using an image is a good idea. Think about pinterest, people are all about the visual aspects of a website more and more. Time is short and images are easy to see quickly. Sadly people are reading less and pictures might be your only hope.

  • I avoid doing it unless it’s absolutely necessary like If someone specifically asked for that link in the comments or my link can contribute some important info to the post. I agree with Sierra that putting links in the comments each and every time looks pushy. I don’t like seeing it on other people’s post, I won’t submit other people to the same thing.

  • Carli says:

    I’ve never even heard of doing this. Am going to check it out.

  • Noor says:

    I don’t think it is effective . The link should be added with the picture caption . So that people may click right away .

  • This problem annoys me as a Facebook user, not just as a page owner. When I like a page it’s BECAUSE I want its post to show up in my newsfeed. Every one of them. I’m concerned that I may be missing posts!

    • Sierra says:

      I so agree with you Christina! I have seen my page creep upwards because I had to buy advertising for a couple of days. Before that nothing was happening. I’ve seen other people posting about the drop in “likes” and traffic to their blogs.

      I have been putting my links in my comment line, I don’t like to because I feel like I am being pushy but what else are we to do. We like a page because we like it and believe in its content. To not be able to see the results of our hard work being shared, is frustrating!

  • tammigirl says:

    I think link in comments is more likely to be effective if you post a picture – like the one facebook would have shown if you had just posted the link in the first place. Also, I find the brands which really engage with people on facebook do show up in my feeds, when they just post the links, every single day. So maybe that algorithm is better than people think!
