    Facebook noob:(

    How do viral websites drive millions of traffic from facebook daily?

    Do they have a facebook page, then make a post, then boost the post?

    I don't understand the process. Pls tell me how the process goes.

    One more question; i have seen people mentioning they spend just $5 on facebook ads and they get serious traffic. What type of ads do they pay $5 for?

    I really need someone to explain this to me.

    Last request. I would appreciate directories to articles teaching how to spend less and get more traffic from Facebook.

    it seems you already have a website, so how did you manage to get traffic ?
    and how much traffic you are getting without facebook?

    Blackhat Whitehat ways:

    Whitehat:
    Own a large page or be admin of a large group, post, then boost, just like you said.

    Blackhat:
    Viral scripts, force share, graph api abuse (with app), etc etc. All kind of incentivized share since it's not permitted. And combine this with a very interesting niche to increase conversion.
    Also can likejack so you can later use another page for same user to different link. Useless if you ask me to likejack since it won't have particularly high reach anyway.

    Yes, i do have a website with no traffic for now. I can get traffic from my method, but it takes time.

    It's just that time is not by my side. I thought of a faster method, but it requires having a page with a large no. of fans.

    I thought there could be a way i can get my post at to a larger audience with Facebook post boost even if i have zero fans presently.

    Nop you need some fans to start with, like your page and ask friends to do, make it reach to 500 fan, you should be good boosting..

    Some years ago, i had a Facebook page i wanted to run for fun.

    Fb had this paid option called "boost" to show your particular post to 100, 500, 1000 etc for a certain price. I never tried it thought.

    So i was thinking even with zero fans on my page, i could use the boost post option to get my post to a large audience. Never thought that option was for getting your post visible to a number of your fans.

    What if i pay pages with millions of fans to share my post to their fans, will that work? I don't think I'll be able to afford it though, it'll be expensive.

    What about banner ada? Can i get 10,000 - 20,000 if i spend 60$?

    You can target more than just your fans for your page. You can target all types of demographics. Just open up the advertising options on your page, should be right there. To reach millions of people you will need a popular niche and a good amount of money to spend. You can have these targets take many different actions like download your app or like your FB page. You can play around with the demographics until you reach your desired audience.

    Honestly I have no idea. I have a viral blog site and I don't use facebook at all.
    I honestly hate facebook so fucking much. Why is it when someone likes my post doesn't show up on everyones wall? They have this reach bullshit that prevents any growth without spending money.

    Immagine if youtube made it so instead of every subscriber getting your video you have to "boost" your video for people to see it. Fuck facebook.

    I'm getting good results from Twitter and Google+

    Here's my Twitter stats

    I tried using facebook, I just don't see much results.

    Most the viral page used to sell the page once it grows. I don't see any monetization even I don't see any link to external site but I can see good post engagements and likes.

    But I see other page which has same like and they have monetization with their website they post around 70% image links to the website.

    Now the question is how they get content i saw most of content was taken from old post from other viral website and page any time FB can remove this page because of "facebook page content copyright"

    If we have tool find image and video search we can see lot of them using the same content

    LUKE PEERFLY has a tool called FPTRAFFIC, he uses this tool to spy on the users to find the most shared content and he uses that content at a later stage.

    Mess around with Facebook ads. Once you learn the tricks you can send traffic to your site for cheap. Make sure you do the math though. If you're making $5 rpm you need to make sure you're getting clicks for $0.005 to break even. I've gotten clicks for .002 takes time and some money to get your ads just right. Just need to test and make sure you target the right people or you can be paying for ads and get zero clicks

    Creating fb fans pages focused towards a particular category.. Example: Health, Relationship, Sports and then getting the right audience to follow your pages. Once this is done, create content on your site as per your audience and share it on your own fb pages should result in good traffic.

    I need to mention that I saw a funny page with 16m fans. When I checked the traffic of the website, it was just 160k daily. Pretty low for a page with that much fans.

    They buy the traffic, they buy posts & they buy pages. For exmpl. and as a little side story: the Diply CEO & Founder bought years ago at his beginning a big Page from one guy I know in Albania for 20K I also found the pic they shot after the deal was done. Now he's rich af end of story! lol
