    I have a Facebook page with 30k fans. I post around once or twice a day on Tumblr and I manually copy and paste the links on the Facebook page. Normally i get 4,000-6,000 people who "saw this post" according to Facebook. Generally when I ask questions and type directly on the Facebook page, I get around 10,000 people who see the post. If I use Tumblr to autopost to Facebook, I get less views.

    What's the best way to drive traffic to a site from a Facebook Fan page?

    You have to keep your edge rank up. For my funny images pages I post one image directly with a link to my site above it (not linking to the image on the site) once an hour. Then I post one link an hour to an image directly on my blog.

    What niche are you in cause that greatly matters in your posting strategy.

    The key in most cases is keeping your edgerank up while still getting enough links to your money site.

    Nalgenerunner,

    Really this is one of the best ways to get traffic from your Facebook page to your website. Alternatively, you could set up an application on the FB page that has your website hosted within it but that seems like more work than its worth for you. Are the links and corresponding status updates that you post on your FB page compelling? If you are having 6000 people viewing a post and still having trouble getting people to click through, it would seem that your posts are not enticing to your audience. Have you looked at your FB insights at all? What is your audience like? Mostly women? Mostly men? Age? Use this info to craft messages that will compel them to click through to your site.

    Perhaps you can find some tips here,
