It can really help to drive targetted users to your blog, if done skillfully. The best start will be to create a facebook fan page for your blog. A facebook fan page will help you get visitors, subscribers & also, if you got good number of fans, it will help you drive advertisers to you site as they prefer blogs with good number of facebook fans & twitter followers.

How to create a facebook fan page for my blog ?
1. Login to your facebook account. You must have a facebook account if you want to create your facebook fan page. If you don’t have one (oh, in which world are you living then), you must register at facebook.
2. Now go to this link . You will see some categories as shown in the picture below :
Click on ‘Brand or Product’.
3. Now you will be prompted to choose a subcategory & a name.
For subcategory, scroll down on the drop down menu and choose “Website”. On the next section, enter the name of your page. Here I have used the name of my blog blog, i.e. ‘vast9′.
4. Upload a photo to your Facebook Fan Page.
Try to make a cool photo as your blog’s profile image on your facebook fan page as the profile image will be the first thing to attract new fans.
5. Add information about your blog’s Facebook fan page.
Click the “Info” tab and then “Edit Information” on the right.
Type in the relevant information including the date your blog was founded, the URL, and an overview. Try to provide more & more info about your blog as you can.
6. Write a catchy caption about your blog.
Click the link under your profile image that says ‘write something about ‘yourBlogName’. Now add an short attractive caption here, which describes what is your page all about & why one should become a fan of it. This will really play a great role in increasing your Facebook fans.
7. Final step
Finally remember to become a fan of your newly created facebook fan page of your blog by clicking the ‘Like’ button . Now try to suggest your page to as many of your friends as possible. Once you get 25+ facebook fans of your blog, you can get a vanity url of your page by clicking here. A vanity url will be of the type facebook.com/yourBlogName.
