It seems that a lot of bloggers use FB to get traffic. And yes, you can get crazy amounts of traffic, but should you rely on it?
Unfortunately I still use and even rely on FB, but I am almost constantly trying to build my other traffic sources like SEO and Pinterest.
Today I’m going to show you why you should not rely on Facebook and why you should make building your other traffic sources a priority.
The Group Admins
Group admins will often deny posts that have links in them. Group admins on Facebook aren’t bad. They have every right to do what they want to with their group. And because of this, they usually don’t want other people sharing stuff on their group.
They probably just don’t want spammers and scammers ruining their group. But people who are just bloggers may suffer if some group admin in one of the groups they share in decides that they don’t want members sharing links anymore. This is one reason why FB is just no reliable.
FB Is Full of Scammers & Scrapers
Facebook are just full of scammers and scrapers. It’s basically out of control. You won’t believe the number of groups that are either ran or completely full of scammers.
Scrapers are even worse. Scrapers copy and paste your content and put it in their site or Facebook. It seems that food bloggers usually suffer the most from them.
