Thinking of working on social media to bring visitors to my site

I am thinking of using twitter,FB,G+,Linkin,Pinterest,Digg,Stumbupon.

Which one is worth focusing my effort and what are your experiences with these sites?

I discovered that there are so much changes to these sites and they are no longer the same.

Love to hear from your view

    Since your niche is Health&Fitness you can get a lot of traffic from women driven Pinterest. And obviously Twitter for every blogger.
    Further instead of devoting time to Digg and StumbleUpon try doing guest posts to your related blogs. Guest blogs really work a lot.

    There are lots of social media sites are available but I think three social media sites are more helpful to attract more and more traffic.

    1: Facebook
    2: LinkedIn
    3: Twitter

    I would go for the guest post too. Since Timeline's came along Facebook is crap for driving traffic from pages.

    Don't forget about YouTube...

    In my opinion, they have the most potential to create viral SM traffic that'll blow your mind.

    After that I'd go with FB, Twitter and of course Pinterest.

    Yes as Griffin said Youtube will definitely ROCK!

    I just checked out your blog and I have to admit it man "I LOVE YOUR BLOG" The site design is simply awesome; enough to hook up a visitor.

    Design Tips (Though you have not asked for. But I really think you should take a note since I do believe your blog has the potential to make million dollars)
    1. Rename your Blog's homepage title
    I am not asking you to rename your Blog but naming your page's title. When I log in to your site, what I could see is the blog's url and not the TITLE. This is drastically going to affect your blogging journey as your title is neither going to show up on Google results nor on the RSS subscribers.

    2. Kick out that Adsense
    Let's be clear upfront: your visitors are the ones who need solutions to their problem and undoubtedly they are going to buy any recommended product from you (as long as they have trust on you). When you've got buyers ready to spend dollars, then why bother them with mere $1 ads? Further who would like to see his hard-earned precious bloggers go away by clicking a simple text ad?
    So first thing first: Remove that adsense bar. This is seriously going to affect your blog. Instead put a email subscription box and focus on list building. And if you are having difficulty in isolating that Adsense baby away, then push it to the last of the sidebar.

    3. Make your Header more attractive
    Either hire a cheap designer over Fiverr or Do it yourself. While you are still struggling to decide which option to go for, I would suggest you to enlarge your header and fit it over the screen. Just a block of text at the left does not appear attractive.

    Hope you'll keep that in mind.

    And one more thing, you don't need to engage on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is full of professionals looking for Marketing, Career, Business and all and I don't see your niche has to do anything with that.
    So, just stick to Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Guest Blogging.

    All the Best!

    The most powerful social network to me is Facebook & Twitter, it's quite hard to choose which one the most powerful...for me...they're both equal. You can consistently drive traffic through it if you have a well maintain account for each of them.

    The other two are Google+ and LinkedIn

    Hi Aarongoh!

    Based on observation and experience, I advice that you go with Twitter and Facebook for spreading your brand awareness and LinkedIn for acquiring customers.

    Build your network and credibility in Facebook and Twitter. Focus more than quality rather than quantity. Start building your network with your friends and explain to them in detail the benefits that they can get on your product or service. Educate them so that they can properly educate too their potential referrals.

    In terms for possible business ventures and negotiations, go to LinkedIN and you will find many credible businessmen which you can talk and seek advice from. The great thing about LinkedIn is that you are directly negotiating with the owner of a certain business.

    In my opinion Youtube and Facebook drive the most targeted traffic. It depends how you are promotion your social media.. You must optimalize it all. You can think of doing AdWords for Youtube and Facebook ads to get more targeted traffic.

    Just a quick tip about Twitter, make sure you curate other relevant content as well - Don't just tweet your own stuff. Find some good posts on your niche and share them. I use the schedule feature in Tweetdeck to set up tweets of relevant content I've found to tweet through the day and then interact with people live as well.

    Look for twitter-chats to join as well. They generate new followers and traffic if you contribute to the discussion.

    Facebook, Twitter, etc. Are just channels. They are only a means of communication like television or the radio.

    What matters is how targeted your campaigns are. Highly targeted campaigns on any social media will yield high quality visitors

    1. Linkedin


    Right Click, copy and personalise that FULL url to be one of your own - in your browser.

    2. Youtube

    Submit Your Channel to Pingler.com etc - http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/USERNAME/videos.rss
    Submit Specific tag feed to Pingler.com etc - http://www.youtube.com/rss/tag/YOURTAGHERE.rss

    3. Document Sharing Sites such as


    Upload documents containing keywords and backlinks to your relevant page
    this will generate backlinks and traffic, more importantly if you keyword research the document title, description and tags - you could be on a role.

    remember that Linkedin bought slideshare and now allow you to integrate your slideshare docs automatically into your linkedin profile, and it gets better...

    ...for yu can also integrate VIDEOS into your slideshare presentations and add them to your linkedin profile WITHOUT HAVING TO UPGRADE and pay to do so.

    Hope that helps, and gets you thinking (and doing)

    Only twitter, pinterest and Google Plus can drive targeted traffic to your site.
    Use #tag (#your keywords) when post in twitter and Google Plus and make related images, infographic when post in Pinterest.
