The Epic Guide to Using Facebook Groups to Explode your Blog Traffic

Using Facebook groups to grow your blog and business

Facebook groups are hands down the number one way I’ve been able to explode my blog traffic and build relationships with other bloggers. And they can be for you too. If you know how to use them the right way!

There’s a way certain dynamic and an etiquette in each type of group that you need to know before jumping in and participating. You don’t want to make a bad name for yourself unknowingly or even get kicked out!

There are also certain types of groups that offer different benefits to you and your blog. We’ll get to that in just a sec!

In this post, I’ll show you:

Why Facebook groups are great and why they’re not

The do’s and don’ts of Facebook groups etiquette

How to avoid getting flagged as a spammer by Facebook and having your comments auto-deleted!

The different type of Facebook groups you need to be joining

Hacks to help you manage all the great information you’ll gain from these groups

And over 20 of my absolute favorite Facebook groups divided into group type to make it easy!

Why Facebook Groups are Great and Why They’re Not

When I first started joining Facebook groups, I lurked mostly. Shh… don’t tell!

I wasn’t confident and a newbie blogger so I watched instead of just jumping in. The truth is, there are bloggers in all blogging levels within each of these fantastic groups.

And let me just add that ALL bloggers are just regular people like you and me! And most of the bloggers I meet are super nice people too!

No need to stay in the background… jump in, participate, and instantly become one of the cool kids. Well, maybe you’ll just explode your blog traffic.

Facebook groups are great to help you make meaningful and lasting connections with other bloggers like you. Sappy I know, but so true.

Let’s face it, blogging can be LONELY and no one else in the world seems to understand blogging quite like other bloggers. So, you’ll find these groups a refreshing place to be in your own world with people like you.

Cool huh?

What Facebook groups are NOT is a place to drop your latest content and… run. That’s a finger waving NO-NO.

These groups are free advertising but not free entirely… you pay with your investment of time. If you join a thread… complete it. And if you scroll through and see that someone posted a question that you know the answer to… be a friend and answer it.

Now we all know how precious our time is! So, choose wisely where and how you choose to participate in Facebook groups.

If you do them the wrong way, they can become a huge TIME SUCK and you’ll see no results! Your business is your first priority, not being a participant in group discussions.

You’ll need to establish boundaries and set personal limits to stay on track.

The do’s and don’t of Facebook groups etiquette

Within each group, there are rules. You should find all group rules on the description page, or in a post that’s pinned to the top of the group feed.

 

Complete Blog Post Planner

#1 READ ALL THE RULES in every group before you start participating and posting!

Each group is unique and the host will have requests or DON’Ts the other groups may not. Reading the rules gives the host the respect they deserve for putting in the time to create and moderate such an awesome group.

It takes A LOT of time for a host and moderators to make sure the “rule-breakers” aren’t running amuck in their group. Sadly, that’s more work than the actual work of running the group.

Promise me here and now… actually repeat after me, “I your name will not be an intentional rule-breaker in my Facebook groups!”

I added intentional because we all make a mistake a few times… forget to complete a thread, or post in the wrong place. It happens because all the groups do things a little differently. When that does happen, apologize and find a way to not do that again.

#2 Read the individual share thread description thoroughly before posting.

Again, each groups does things a little differently and to prevent being tagged by a moderator, read the description IN DETAIL before you start posting.

For example, many groups have share thread where you’ll be allowed to post a blog post, a social media profile, or even a freebie you’ve created and have that link shared by the other bloggers in that thread.

Some groups require you to tag all the bloggers you’ve interacted with, others just ask that you like their comment, and others want you to do both. Or something else entirely!

Most of these rules and requests are there because of either getting dinged by Facebook for spammy looking posting or because of those rule-breakers making these more difficult for everyone.

#3 Don’t be a link dropper

I know I mentioned that earlier, but it’s worth repeating. If you drop a link to your own content even on the days it’s permitted and never stick around to help others or share other people’s content – you won’t be trusted.

Basically, you’ll be ignored by the group and maybe even removed by the host. That’s because your host thinks of her group like a legit networking party. It should be fun, laid back, and place where you can connect with other people like you.

No one likes the obnoxious no-it-all at the party who only talks about themselves the whole night! So, don’t be that guy… or girl!

#4 Don’t leave the same link or pin in every group in the same day

There are so many bloggers who are in many of the same groups. If you decide to leave the same blog post in every single group that day, you’re hurting your chances of getting your post selected from the many, many others in that thread.

Think about it, if you’re wanting to get re-pins on your latest post and you add that pin to 7 other pin share threads, once a blogger re-pins that pin – she’s done. Even if they see your post over and over. They’ve already re-pinned it!

If instead, you shared a few different pins, than you have the potential to get several of your amazing pins re-pinned that day.

There’s also another powerful reason you don’t want to share the same links over and over. I’ve explained in detail below.

How to avoid getting flagged as a spammer by Facebook

There’s a bit of a new development in Facebook share threads that’s happening more frequently to bloggers. That is being flagged by Facebook as a spammer and having your comments (your posts) automatically deleted by Facebook.

Let me first say that spammers are gross and make our jobs of creating honest and helpful content so much harder. Facebook works very hard (and should!) to protect all readers from being targeted by these disgusting and lazy individuals. Sorry, got a little carried away there!

When Facebook’s algorithms sense they’re spamming going on… they spring into action. Sadly, you an honest blogger, can become a victim and put in a virtual timeout of sorts.

I know this because it happened to me. I participated in a number of share threads the previous day. And when I woke up the next morning to work on them, I noticed that after finishing 3 threads (yes I know, I’m a slow learner) my link wasn’t even in the thread anymore. At first I thought I forgot to include it or was losing it!

Then I went through all of my threads and saw they too were all gone. #SadMoment

I quickly took to my beloved groups and asked if over bloggers were having this problem too. And I received a resounding YES.

So here’s how I put myself on Facebook’s naughty list.

Normally, I put sprinkle a variety of different post links in my groups throughout the day. In case you scanned through, I talk about that in the section right above this one.

However, this particular week, I was in the middle of posting a series for 7 days straight and wanted to get those posts out there. So, I posted the same exact blog post to all of the groups I shared in that day.

I was apparently flagged as a spammer and all my posts were deleted. Poof… gone!

To remedy the situation, I took a few days off from posting in the groups. And went back to my regular process with no problems.

The types of Facebook groups you should be joining

There are four main types of groups you should be joining if you want to grow your blog. And don’t forget, I’ve listed my favorite groups down below in this post separating by these group types, so you can start joining right away!

#1 Networking and Support Groups

This group category is mainly a means for you to join and get help, support, ask and answer questions, get feedback, and share your victories and frustrations.

These groups are SOOOO valuable! And, again I’ve shared my favs below.

There aren’t a lot of sharing or promo days in these groups, but some do. But the main purpose is to find your tribe of bloggers and connect.

Networking Facebook Groups

You’ll find some groups you join just won’t be “your people.” And that’s OK! When you find your group(s) that you love… you’ll feel like you’re finally home. And can let your hair down and put your yoga pants back on!

When you find your favorite groups, jump in and provide value where you can. Even if you’re a new blogger and you feel like you don’t have anything to add, let me tell you… you do!

You can post an encouraging word on a post where someone is struggling. But honestly, even in the very beginning, we all know some things that others don’t. And when you see a question that you know the answer to – post away my friend!

That’s a fast way to gain trust and relationship in your tribe.

#2 Share Thread Groups

The main purpose for share groups is to share your latest and best content with others so it can be shared by the group members. And in return, you agree to share theirs.

There are literally endless combinations and types of threads happening everyday in these groups. Just participate in the threads you want and be sure to follow the rules and complete them on time.

Share threads are a great way to increase your blog’s traffic and get your content in front of new eyes and shared to a completely new audience. #Winning!

Share thread Facebook Groups

Let me just give you a word of caution. As you jump into each group at the start of your day, it can feel like Christmas as you scroll through all the threads imagining your post going out to the ends of the earth.

But wait! You don’t want to jump into too many threads in one day and can’t finish them all. That’s bad.

You also don’t want to participate in share threads without a plan.

You need to understand your current blogging objectives and only join in threads that will help with that objective. Everything else will be a waste of your precious time.

For example, if you’re working on building up your Instagram following, you may choose to stay focused on all the Instagram threads instead of the Twitter threads.

Think of these threads like a Las Vegas buffet… it’s yummy and you want to dive in but you remember how you felt the last time you tried EVERYTHING. Aghh.

I love share threads, but I’ve gotten super specific in my strategy and ONLY participate in the ones that help me meet my goals.

#3 Hybrid Groups

These hybrid groups have done a great job of building community and support, but also have created weekly share threads to support each other by sharing each other’s creations.

These hybrid groups usually have less share threads than the all share thread groups – usually 3-5 times per week. I love these type of groups because there’s so much value jam-packed in each group!

#4 Course or Blog Specific Groups

The final category are groups that are either by invitation only or groups that you can join once you enroll in a course, mastermind, or even an affiliate program.

Most of these groups require you to have purchased their actual program, course, or book but not all of them.

These Facebook groups are usually smaller and totally focused on every member meeting certain objectives. I love these groups because you tend to really get to know the other members and relationships and even collaborations are born through genuinely trying to help one another.

Hacks to help you manage all your Groups

Finally, if you’re like me, you’ll probably go a little crazy joining all the groups you can find. That’s cool… just don’t get overwhelmed.

I’ve learned a few hacks to help management all the information and keep track of my share threads each day.

I wish Facebook would create more organizational tools like folders for groups… a girl can dream, right?

In the meantime…

Hack #1

The first thing you need to do when sharing in threads or even in a discussion you want to continue to follow, is to save that actual post. You do that by clicking the triple dot button at the top right of the post, and click save.

You can then retrieve all your saved posts by clicking the Saved tab on your left sidebar from your home page.

How to Save Facebook Group Post

Hack #2

I add my favorite groups to my favorites. This simply adds them to a top section on your actual groups page. I use this function to keep all my networking and support groups up top so I can scroll them when I’m ready.

I do this because these groups are so fun to scroll through and jump into discussions, but can quickly become unproductive for me. Sad, but true.

This way I keep them on my groups page where I have to physically click to get to them.

Hack #3

I also have my favorite share threads and you need to stay on top of those so you can try to post as close to the top of the thread as possible. This helps you get more shares.

To give me super easy access, I pin all my favorite share groups to my shortcuts. You can do both of these functions by clicking the triple dot button at the top of the group’s page.

Pin to Shortcuts in Facebook Groups

Hack #4

Finally, I have a tip for getting more shares on your posts. There are many threads that require you to share a certain number of posts in a thread verses all the posts.

In this case, you need to stand out! You can do this by always typing a brief but compelling summary of your post right before your link. In fact, you should do this anytime you post!

Related: The Automation Tools I Use to Grow my Blog on Autopilot

Hack #5

Have a plan before you start networking and sharing in Facebook groups! If you are planning to network in Facebook groups, set a timer for 20 or 30 minutes and scrolls through your groups to see any questions you can answer or any opportunities you may want to join.

When your timer goes off – it’s time to get back to your other work. If you see an interesting thread you want to follow or check back to later, save it per the instructions in hack #1.

If you’re planning to share your blog posts and/or social media accounts with share groups – try focusing on one type of activity per day. For example, on Mondays do only Instagram shares and/or likes, Tuesdays do blog comment threads, Wednesday do Pinterest re-pins, etc.

This makes it easy to focus on one type of activity at a time and feels less overwhelming. Jumping back and forth into various task types everyday can be very draining and slows you down.

Whoa! I’ve just only begun using facebook groups and some tasks are overwhelming to me. I imagined myself going through everything, but then I spent the whole day doing so. It was then, that I realized, that I knew I needed to focus on what I needed for my blog. Pinning facebook groups is something I learned by surprise – once day, I just pinned to top and it got there! – I learnt how to do it better now. Saving posts is a good idea – I had originally thought about saving the URL in a TXT file or… Read more »

Becky @ Disney in your Day
Guest

Facebook groups were really valuable to me when I first started out. The downside I’ve found is that my blog is very niche, so while I complete all the shares or comments I don’t get many in return (not that people aren’t completing the threads, they are just choosing others to share). I’ve found a couple of Disney specific groups to join but they don’t seem terribly active, which is a shame.

FamilyFelicity.com
Admin

Hey Becky that’s a tough one! I’d look for some great mom blogger groups instead of just general blogging groups. There’s a TON of those and many of them are pretty active. And I’m assuming that’s a big chunk of your audience.

I recently discovered the save post tab myself and you are right, it absolutely makes keeping up with the posts you’re involved in one hundred percent easier.

Tara
Guest

I love the list! facebook groups definitely helped me immensely! The only thing I have trouble with is finding a good way to save them while waiting for the thread to finish (if it’s an all or nothing type of thread). The notifications get lost in my feed and then I get a nasty gram threatening removal because I haven’t finished the thread. Any tips on that?

FamilyFelicity.com
Admin

Hey Tara, it’s a LONG post so you may have missed it, but I shared a hack on how to save those threads. Lol Just go to the top right corner of the actual thread/post and click the drop down menu and select save. You will be able to access later in your saved file on the left side bar (where your groups and pages are listed.)

Well this was very informative! The groups can definitely become time consuming. I try not to commit to too many threads in a day, as I want to complete them all and not be a link dropper.

I think the hacks you listed are awesome. I definitely will start including descriptions when I post my links to get more engagement. Thanks!
