The Surprising Words That Get Content Shared on Social Media

Do you want more social media traffic?

Did you know that the words you use within your content could drastically affect how much social media traffic you get? For example, if you want more Facebook traffic, then using words like “when,” “tell us,” “submit,” “deals,” and “discounts” can help you get more shares, likes and traffic to your site.

On the other hand, if you use the words “contest,” “promotion,” or “coupon” on Facebook, you’ll actually get fewer shares and likes and less traffic.

In order to help you determine what words you should use and what words you should avoid using on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+, I’ve created an infographic that breaks down desirable and undesirable word usage on each of these social media platforms.
