Adding a Blog to Your Facebook Account is Easy as 1-2-3!

A great way to promote your blog and drive traffic to it is adding it in your Facebook profile.  Here are 3 ways you can share your blog.

1)  Manually Share the Link

The easiest way you can post a blog to your Facebook account is to simply share your blog link in your status update manually.  This is the most direct and free way to share your content with your audience. 

Here’s how:

  1. Log in to your Facebook account and find the Create post section at the top of the page.

  2. Type something about the blog post that you’re sharing, and then paste the URL into the post directly below your text. After you have pasted the link, a preview of the bog post should populate below the text box.

  3. When the blog post snippet appears, you can erase the link you just added in the previous step. The blog URL will remain, and the snippet should stay in place below your text.

***To delete the link from the blog post to use a new link or to not post a link at all, use the small “x” at the top right of the preview box.***

  1. Use the Share button to post your blog link to Facebook.

***If you are trying to spread the word about your content, make sure to double check your post is set to Public.*** 

2)  Link Your Blog to Your Facebook Profile

Another great way to get people to visit your site is to have a link to your site in your contact details in your profile.  This way people can click the link directly to see all your content instead of waiting for you to post or scrolling through main page. 

  1. Log in to your Facebook account and access your Facebook profile. Click your name and profile picture in the top menu bar to access your profile. 

  2. Go to the About tab and then click or tap Contact and Basic Info from the left pane.

  3. Choose the Add a website

If you don’t see this link, then you already have a URL posted there.  Hover you mouse over the existing link and choose Edit and then Add another website.

**Make sure the visibility of the link is set to Friends, Public, or Custom so that other Facebook users or the public can find your blog.

  1. Choose Save Changes to post your blog on your Facebook profile page.

3) Set Up Auto-Blog Posts

The third way to post your blog is probably the most complex but will take one more step out of your day and make it more efficient. 

When linking your blog to Facebook, each time you publish a new bog, it will automatically load to your Facebook account.  A snippet will appear on your homepage as a status update.  Every friend will see your status as a new blog post getting your content out there.
