    many social networking opportunities allow you to enter a link back to your Web site in your profile on their site, the opportunities to gain SEO benefits from these links vary from site to site.

    The social media networking sites gather in a lot of people, so that gives lots of chance to get traffic to your website. But at the the end it is not compulsory that the traffic will generate every single time but sometimes it may also enhance bounce rate where people will view and leave the page in less then 5 seconds.

    It would be better if they stayed for longer on your site, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. E.g. if we had ten new visitors coming to BAF from Twitter and a bounce rate of 70%, that would still mean that 3 of those visitors spent longer looking through the site. Plus it's better to have those other 7 visitors for a short time and for them to become aware of our forum, than not to have had them at all.

    I really appreciate your context but mainly more important is that company website should become like a brand where visitors enjoy coming out there and would be free enough to explore what they want as a solution to their demands. So I agree that people who come to your website may be out of 10 they may be 3 but they should at least find the website comfortable to approach again and again for their needs or entertainment with back-end motive of generating brand loyalty.

    Jack_123 I agree with all of that, a website will be much more successful if people enjoy visiting it and this is especially true if they benefit from it so much that they are motivated to tell others about it.

    Now more than ever, company marketers are charged with improving performance with fewer resources and shifting marketing budgets from traditional to digital tactics like SEO and social media. There are significant benefits from combining search engine optimization and social media marketing tactics ranging from increased social network discovery via search to the ability to attract links for improved SEO.

    Social Media not only helps in SEO but also promoting your business, as having live communication with your clients and responding instantly to their queries would allow you to have better and bigger following and so the customers.
    and from SEO point of view it also works, because search engine counts that how many people like, share or follow you?

    It is good to make use of social media to promote your brand, products or web.
    You may find some media related to your web. I mean their topics. Then you may lanch similar articles in those social media, with links in it.
    It is good for google to get your link automatically, good for SEO
