Want more traffic ? Do you use the Publicize feature on your WordPress Blog.  Publicize will automatically send your posts to your social media sites. So your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Path and Google+ sites can display your blog posts.  This will raise the visibility of your blog.  To access Publicize, go to the Dashboard.  Under Settings drop down menu, click on Sharing.  Here is where you can set up the connections to your sites.  You can also customize the message that will be displayed to viewers of your social media sites.  Once your connected, go to the Publish box on the Edit Post page.  Here you will see all the sites you have successfully connected to receive your blog post.  In the publicize  section, under your social media site names, you will see Edit Settings.  The Settings will bring your back to where you set up all your services.  This is where you can change the social media sites if you choose to do so.  Edit is where you can change the custom message that will go out with your shared posts.  Another feature to mention is the Publish Immediately.  Click on the Edit button next to this to set a custom time and date to publish your post.  Most important, don’t forget to preview your post before you publish it.  I have been guilty of that.  Once you publish your post, even if you edit it, that original post still is out there and could have already been shared by the time you finish your edit.  So folks, once its out there, its out there.  Happy Publishing !!
