Here's a great article about Google's "ranking factors"...

I still do think that social stands as one of the best way Google used in ranking a site and it's content

@docxdrl social sharing sends social signals (likes, shares etc.) to the search engines and based on th number of social signals search engines upgrade o downgrade websites. However, social sharing is not enough for website ranking.

Social media helps in gaining traffic through information dissemination. Though just like what @dominique has said, it is not enough. There are other factors to consider. The best thing that social media has done to my online blogging activity is the possibility of gaining referrals.

Social sharing your content means more views and readers. Social media has hidden traffic which can only be found if you share. The good thing is whatever is shared on social media for as long as it is public will be searchable. So to me, its for traffic reasons. And as well as leads in some cases.

Social sharing is must because social media sites are a great source of traffic. If your site does not receive search traffic, the only place to get traffic is through social sites.

That's true. Getting organic traffic is related to SEO. SEO is a hard work, yet there is no guarantee that you will be ranked high. However, if you share on social media, you will get guaranteed traffic.

In order to get traffic from social sites, you have to regularly share your contents, however, sharing too much might be considered spam.

Sharing regularly is a sign that you are serious in what you are doing. People don't go online all throughout the day, so we need to spread out our social media activities that we may reach a rather larger number of audience. We should not set aside the fact that having high-quality contents is one of the most important factors. If people found your site to be helpful, they will be the one to share your contents.

Sharing your content on social media is very important. However, for better conversion, you will have to remember a couple of things, like using a couple of hashtags, but not too many, using feature image, writing a teaser and sharing when most of the followers are likely to be online.

While it is very important to share on social media, moderation is the key, otherwise it could easily become spamming. Having a structured approach to social media sharing could help, otherwise it could easily back fire. I am not so familiar with the use of hashtags but I see it even on pinterest.

That's true. You have a free space to share your content does not mean you start sharing every hour and spam your followers. When you are sharing too much, your followers start to deserting you.
