he visitor. Besides the usual news and announcements from your blog or website add back any useful information that would be interesting to users of the social network.

Sometimes look into the pages of your competitors and participate in the discussions. Let readers know that you know what you are talking about. But just do not do spam. Just leave useful meaningful comments. You can even put "Likes" on responses of other participants.

If you update your page every day the users will be interested to come there again and again. Of course you can update your page less often, but let your users know that you will update it, for example, each Monday or every Tuesday and Thursday.
