Study: Facebook & Twitter Drive Most Blog Traffic, But Don’t Forget Stumble Upon, Flickr, LinkedIn
A new Technorati 2010 State Of The Blogosphere study reinforces something that most who guide web sites and blogs already know: Facebook and Twitter drive traffic. But several sites that music marketers don't always consider - Linkedin, Stumble Upon and Flikr - also proved to also be significant traffic sources. MySpace barely registered in the study, which is perhaps not surprising since the study looked at blogging in general, rather than just music or band blogging. But the results are a reminder of the importance of diversifying your social networking efforts for anyone working to attract new visitors.
