Your Website and Social Media
Here are 4 things you can do to build relationships between your SimDif website and your social networks.
1 • Create links to your different social media pages in the text of your pages and footer.
A sentence with a link, placed on the right keywords, is often better than icons, especially for your readers and search engines.
For example, create links saying something like:
Connect with me on LinkedIn
Check out and Like our Facebook page
Follow me on Twitter
In the Text Editor, highlight each phrase separately and tap on the chain icon to open the Link Editor. Then add the corresponding link to your individual social media pages.
2 • Enable AddThis
Go to ‘Site Settings’ (top-right, yellow button), then ‘Social Media Share Buttons’ and enable 'AddThis'.
After this, re-publish your website and you will see icons at the bottom of your site encouraging people to share your website on their own social networks.
3 • Share your site’s address
Share your site's link anywhere widely: on other websites, in forums, in comments, on social media, the list goes on...
It is VERY important to remember to share your website URL on your own social media profiles, you will be surprised how many people forget to do this. Your social presence helps direct people to your site and your site is a way to control your presence online and explain to people what you do.
4 • Add social media buttons on the pages of your website
If you have a Smart or a Pro site, you will find ‘Social media button’ blocks available under ‘Special’ when you go to ‘Add a New Block’. In these buttons, you can set the addresses of your own social media pages (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, VK). This is a good way to promote your social media and is a way for people to connect with you further.
