Facebook Driving More Traffic than Google (for Some)

Social media is becoming a more powerful driver of traffic than Google for many high authority sites on the web. It seems surprising at first, since web users go to search engines like Google to decide where visit next, while they usually head to Social Media sites like Facebook to hang out and share photos, videos, and thoughts. It's even more surprising considering that Facebook receives about a third of Google's traffic (50 million vs. 149 million in January, per ComScore).

Some of the big name sites receiving more traffic from Facebook than from Google include PerezHiltion.com, Evite.com, Tagged.com and even Twitter.com!

Although it's still early in the development of this trend, it's clear that Social Media has become a serious platform for growing your a website's traffic and providing real value to web users.

If you're looking to increase traffic to your website, enabling and encouraging people to share your content with their networks is key. Boiled down, if you give web users a great thing to share, and tools to share it, they will likely share it.
