    Which Social site You think best for blog traffic?

    There are some popular social sites now.

    1. Facebook

    2. Twitter

    3. Pinterest

    4. Linkedin

    I am using these and some others too, to increase my blog traffic. I am not getting very much traffic from Facebook or Linkedin. Don't know why. But getting good amount of traffic from twitter and pinterest.

    What is your experience about these social sites?

    All above social media sites has equal importance but if you are offering an e-commerce website then you may upload pictures on Pinterest to gain more traffic & in this case Pinterest has some more importance over all other social networking site. Basically Pinterest is a image sharing website so it is better to put effort there & will certainly boost your business.

    While Facebook still drives significant and increasing traffic to my site, my favorite is Google+. With the addition of author highlighting the Google Plus profile has become a great way for all of my content to stand out in Google searches.

    This.

    My experience has been similar. People on Facebook engage the most and click trough to see the content, while the G+ profile makes it stand out in the search results.

    I use plurk, friendster, friendfeed, and myspace on top of your list. But, in our case, the sites that are really effective in getting that traffic are friendfeed, facebook, and twitter. Friendfeed has a lot of groups which you can join and share your postings. On the other hand, Facebook and twitter are extremely famous that's why they've been helping a lot as well.

    You must try Limewire for this - it picks up blogs and generates good traffic.

    But initially, for the traffic, a lot of keyword research is important - what keywords are popular on the web. Then manage the content in the same order to make your blog noticeable - then advertise your work (blog) from various resources like Limewire, Squidoo, Reddit, Hubpages, Blog Directories (search this on Google) and so much more.

    Keep following the trends with Google Analytics tool.

    If you have an account on these social networking sites like Delicious, StumbleUpon, Chime and Myspace, take advantage of them to promote your blog. Put up a notice on all your sites whenever you make a new blog post. Post interesting items in between posts to keep your blog in people's minds.

    As per my opinion face book is the best social site for increasing blog traffic. Because in face book you can join the groups and there can share your blog information, by this you can get traffic for your blog.

    Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Facebook is the best social website to get more traffic to your blog. To get more traffic you should have to connected with social network sites. When ever you publish new content on your blog do not forgot to share it on your social network. Do not post only links, write something attractive and informative about your post so that your friends and followers like, +1, share,retweet and repin in their profile.

    You've put Twitter in the first place. That's interesting. I guess it depends on what your blogging topic is and where your audience likes to spend time online. For example, technology enthusiasts tend to like Twitter and G+ more in my experience.

    Yes I agree with you that it is depends on your bloging topic. Suppose your blog is related to fashion & clothing then Pinterest is best for Social site for your blog traffic. You can represent latest fashion clothes photo over there and get more traffic to your blog.

    I think it depends on what Social Media is used most by your core circle of contacts. It is those people who will be the most help in helping you promote via their page likes, retweets, etc. It's a pretty steep uphill climb if you are starting out in a Social Media platform where you know few people. Sort of like walking into a club or crashing a party. It's tough to mingle when you can't find a familiar face.

    Try stumbleupon, I been using this for almost 6 months now and help my blog generate constant traffic. Make it look naturally in using it, just don't promote your blog most of the time.
