social media is not just for traffic, social media also helps your site gain search engine ranking social signals are as important as backlinks.

I know that link back from the authority website will give you some flight points, but what about social sharing - how valued it is?
How many times your post has to be shared, liked or tweeted to get some credibility in media?
Does it even matter to search engines if you do share, or don't? :?:

Social sharing means traffic assuming the social shares you made convert. I have set my blog to auto publish on my social profiles and am happy I get some traffic.

I think sharing can help by increasing the Web traffic. But there is no fixed formula. One has to figure out what is best for one's site - facebook/twitter etc?

You are very right. That is the power of social sharing which has positive effects. Sadly, not all social shares do us good.

social sharing helps in search engine ranking because social sharing generates social signals, which works just like backlinks.

Social signals.. Oh that sounds great. But still, I prefer traffic from the shadings. How does social signal help?

social sites give you nofollow backlinks. However, they also give you social signals. Search engines view social signals just like dofollow backlinks that pass link juice.

Social sharing has two major benefits, one you get traffic to your site, two it will improve your search engine ranking as you get social signals from social sharing. Social sharing is offpage SEO.

Social sharing helps a site alot. First it will help keep a site very active. Sites online are created mainly for visitation, if no one visit your site then the site will soon die a natural death. So social sharing helps bring organic visitors .

Getting organic views requires SEO. SEO does not guarantee traffic though. The easiest ways to drive traffic is through social site.

This is the first time I hear someone say social sharing is a dangerous thing. Social sharing not only generates traffic for your site, you can also build brand and drive sales.
