Social Media Tracking 3 ways

You should! Social Media Tracking is vital. Here is how to keep track of the biggest three social media giants Let’s look at Facebook, Instagram,  and Pinterest…

On Facebook  most people know about the insights tracking that facebook provides.

Did you know that you are able to track other social media with various social media tools for business?




What do you want to do with engagement on your Facebook Fan page? This is the business page that you create, not your profile page that Facebook gives you when you sign up. That is NOT for business.  >  One of my business pages

Facebook offers many ways to engage with potential customers. If you have suddenly lots of people visiting your fan page where would you be sending them and why? There are different ways to handle that traffic to your page. There are also ways to track that traffic.

One way of course, is putting a link to your website in the About section of your Fan page. In the short description and general information sections as well as the website section. You should do this on your profile page, there is a place to list your fan / business page.

Go the top left section of your Profile page – see the little pencil when you hover over it . You are able to list your fan pages there. I have my fan pages listed and my website. You want people to find you easily.

Notes Section on your Business Page

You can take the html  version from your article on your website and put it in the notes section. People will see the article in your page status as a post, but it will stay on your notes permanently.

Traffic So now that we know what to do with our engagement, let’s GET some more traffic to your fan page.

Promote Your Content
Publish as much as possible. Use social media advertising to promote shares of your blog posts on Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.  You also use promotion strategies such as emailing your  email list and reaching out to your influencers in your niche when you publish your great content. This actually helps you to extend your content’s reach and generate new readers for your blog.

The typical Facebook marketer keeps close tabs on two main stats: Post Reach and Page Likes. While you should be conscious of these stats, they should not be central to measuring your marketing goals on Facebook. I also like to see what time I get most people visiting my page.

It’s more important to understand the number of fans your posts reach, how many of those fans you engage and what types of clicks your posts receive. Of course, reaching your fans is only half the battle. The true measure of whether your content resonates with your audience is measured in part by engagement.

What is Engagement?

An “engaged fan” is anyone who clicks anywhere within your post or generates a story about your post, even if it doesn’t result from a click. Depending on your unique goals, you may use one or all of the metrics I’ve shared and you might track one or two more. ” To  learn more from social media examiner  on analyzing facebooks metrics

When people create Pins from your website, you’ll be able to track how they do on Pinterest. It can take up to 48 hours for data to load on Pinterest, so the most recent data won’t show.

If you just converted to a business account, we can show data from after you converted to a business account, not from before. New data should start loading after two days and you should see a full week’s worth of data in 10 days.

You also might not see any social media tracking data if there hasn’t been a significant volume of Pins coming from your website. Another reason why you might not have data is if your verified website redirects to another URL
