How to get traffic from social media's to your post or blog ?

Know about the best handpicked ‘Social Media Sites’ to get traffic for Your Blog.
Social Media websites can drive insanely great traffic to your blog if you have a good social  media marketing strategy. But it can drive fair amount of traffic if you just submit blog  posts regularly to your social media profiles.
Social media traffic is as important as organic traffic from search engines as we can’t rely  on Google alone. They continue to push algorithmic updates like Panda, Penguin and who  knows the next could be Giraffe.
It means that we must diversify the way we get traffic. I’m going to list the top social media  and other websites that you shouldn’t ignore or must use as part of your social media  marketing strategy.
I’m  going to focus only on sites that can drive traffic to our websites in one way or the other  and not for building backlinks.
Though the traffic quality of social media can’t be matched with that of organic traffic, it is  still important. It helps us to keep the bounce rate low which is assumed to be one of the  many ranking signals used by Google.

Top Social Networking (& Web 2.0) Sites To Drive Traffic  To Your Blog or Post :

1. Facebook
Facebook has not only transformed the way people  the world over connect, communicate and share  ideas, pictures, videos  and news, it’s made it  possible for businesses to get their products
across to a mass audience in a sensational win-win manner.
With over a billion active users it’s the largest social networking website. Leverage your  Facebook friends and share your blog posts regularly with your Facebook friends and fan  base.

2. Tweeter
Twitter is the second most popular social network (microblogging platform to be more specific). If our content is viral in nature then it can  bring instant massive traffic to our blog/website in no time.

3. LinkedIn
LinkedIn is web’s favorite professional networking  website with over 100 million active users.  LinkedIn’s traffic quality is better than that of  Facebook and Twitter as it is mostly used by  professionals who are looking for job or business  opportunities.

4. Pinterest
Pinterest is the biggest thing that happened  to  social media after Twitter. According to a  TechCrunch article  Pinterest drives more traffic  than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn combined.
If your blog posts have quality images then you shouldn’t ignore Pinterest. Just pin those  images to Pinterest under the right category and it can send quality traffic to you as  Pinterest users are known to spend more money than Facebook or Twitter.

5. Google+
Google+ is Google’s answer to Facebook. Though   they call it a social network I wouldn’t call it a social  networking website. But that said, it is important to  share your blog posts on Google+ as social signals  are now used to rank web pages.
And that’s not all! As you probably know Google now gives importance to authors (dubbed  as Author Rank). For that they use data from your Google+ profiles. It means that if you’re  popular on Google+ then your blog posts are more likely to be on top.

6. Reddit
Reddit succeeded where Digg failed. It’s not the Facebook or a Twitter that killed Digg,  Reddit killed Digg. If you write content that’s viral in nature then Reddit can send you instant  massive traffic. Just make sure that you use social media timing signals to share the right  content at the right time.
