We are excited to announce the launch of a new feature added to your Blog App – Networked Blogs!

Blogging regularly is one of the best ways to keep people coming back to your site, and now with Networked Blogs, there’s a way to bring in even more visitors! By automatically posting your latest entries to Facebook (with the powerful Facebook Connect) you can ensure that your site will get vastly more exposure.

How to enable Networked Blogs

1.  Go to your Site manager and select to edit your blog

2.  Visit the Settings page of your Blog App.  There you will see this button:

Networked Blogs

3.  Click on enable and when prompted enter your Facebook login details to link your Webs blog to your Facebook profile.

4. Once complete, your posts will start to show up on the connected Facebook profile.

By sharing your blog entries on Facebook, you open the door to a network of ‘friends of friends’, and obtain a much larger potential audience. And, if you have Facebook Connect enabled on your site, you have the opportunity to not only boost your page views, but your members as well! Posts will appear in the news feed, just like you’re used to seeing Webs’ Blog Posts on our own Facebook Page:

Why Blog?

Blogging is important for a number of reasons, as pointed out in this recent eMarketer article:

Blogs not only promote engagement but they also help companies increase the number of pages they have indexed by major search engines.”

Utilizing social media and Social networking can drastically increase your reach.  Regardless of the topic around which your site is designed around, be it a business, group or personal site, Blogging and Social Sites are paths to a more successful site.

Don’t waste another moment; Go to your Blog settings and enable Networked Blogs.

Don’t have a blog? Get one today!

Until next time,

Happy Site Building!

    Hi. I am not listed with any of the social networks(Facebook, etc). Can I blog on any one of them to promote my web site on WEBS…to the masses without it being considered spam? Aubrey Zaid

      @Aubrey: I am not sure I understand what you are asking. Are you looking to blog on social networks without having accounts?

    I am planning on creating a website with WEBS and have WEBS post it on the Internet.
    Once done, if I then join or create my own Facebook group and want to create an ad on Facebook that would contain my own click-on website address, will that be only for those in my own limited group or will it go to other Facebook members? A/Z

      @Aubrey: If I understand you correctly, you are looking to post paid ads on Facebook for a new group page. Paid ads are shown to target audience you select. The audience can be as big or as small as you choose.

    Great feature! :)

    I would like my blog entries to appear on a group I created for my website instead of my personal facebook profile. Is it possible to do so?

    Like Sasha, I too would like to connect to a business page rather than my personal profile. Is this possible?

    • the Webs Team
      Jul 22, 2010 - 10:58 AM

      @Rob: Facebook connect only currently connects to personal profile (due to the way Facebook is set up)
