As a website owner, I would imagine that you are constantly looking for ways to increase your website traffic. Have you considered using social media to grow your website traffic? LinkCollider is a website dedicated to increasing your social media shares and improving your SEO.
Social media can definitely help drive free traffic to your website. If you think about it: there are millions of people using social media constantly. Therefore, if you can find a way to get a captive audience through social media you have a chance of increasing your traffic.
When I talk about using social media, I am referring to sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram etc.
I am not suggesting that if your content is shared on social media it will automatically lead to greater rankings on the search engines. But if your content gets shared on social media then it makes it easier to attrac more visitors to your content without over reliance on organic search traffic.
It is the viral nature of social media that I am particularly focusing on here. If you write good, engaging content there is no reason why you cannot get free viral traffic from social media. Therefore, you’ll immediately have two ways of getting traffic to your website free. Organic search traffic and traffic through social media sharing.
So if you are looking to gain traffic through social media shares then LinkCollider is a free website you can use.

Your next job is to submit whatever pages take your fancy. If you decide to promote your website, you can promote your website’s home page or you may decide to promote an article within your website: your choice.
After submitting your 3 pages which is child’s play, this is where the action really begins
Tokens are the currency (or money) you use on LinkCollider to allow you to receive social media shares from other members. So how do you build up money to allow other members to share your content?
You have to engage in an activity. So for example you can share a page on Facebook or you might want to tweet a page. You are in control of what you choose to do.
So if say you decide to share a page on Facebook, how do you know how many tokens you will earn? That is easy.
If you look at the example below, sharing this page on my Facebook account will earn me 20 tokens. It really is that easy.
As you build up tokens, your content will get shared.
Go To Your Dashboard Regularly
How do you monitor how other members are sharing your pages?
That is simple too.
Just Click on the Dashboard and you can frequently keep an eye on what is happening with shares on your sites.
Whenever a social share takes places, you receive an alert on your dashboard such as the one below.
How to find out what types of shares have taken place on each site
On your dashboard, you are able to determine what types of shares are taking place.
