    link building is an old technique now and hardly does the trick. Social media is a good way of promoting your site and services. But there are many other ways to promote site. Think about them as well, they can be magical.

    Link Building = How Popular Your Site Is!

    Hi,

    Link building is an effort undertaken by webmasters or other owners to promote a particular site. People naturally gravitate to a site that gives them the information which they are looking for. When such a site is found, they invariably point a link to it by embedding the site's page's URL on their own page. In other words, they "build a link" to the site. When a large number of such link building takes place over a period of time, the site's popularity grows in the eyes of search engines, who begin indexing it more vigorously. Soon, the site's pagerank increases, and search engines and advertisers begin approaching you with a request to let them advertise on your site.

    Hope this helps.

    Social media is helpful if you want to attract more people, gain followers and traffic. The reason is you are actually reaching real people with the help of social media. As we all know, nowadays there are a lot of active users around social media sites. So if you are serious about getting more followers/audiences then Social media is the answer. While Link building, this will help you on how to get ranked along different search engine sites. Having a website with no visibility in search engine result pages is like a needle in a haystack. What I mean is, the site is non-sense if it is not ranking in SERP. For you to be able to ranked your site well you have to focus on link building. Doing right stuff while following white hat techniques. Not all link building submissions are good. You still have to check the quality of the site that you are entering in. Hope that this explanation helps you. Good luck ;)

    Build a community. Engage, communicate and address their concerns.

    As a start, you can roll out competitions, raffles, prizes, etc. That should help you get started. Build it from there.

    We're all in the problem-solving business. What are the needs and problems of your target audience? Your job is to provide valuable products and services (= solutions to your audience's needs) to enhance customer experience. In the end, it all comes down to perceived value.

    Instead of thinking "how can I get links", think of how you can use social media to engage with your followers, provide helpful information to your potential clients or customers, and raise awareness of your brand. You want to use social media in a way that will encourage people to think of you when they need the products or service you provide. Of course, links are still part of Google's algorithm, so sprinkling a few links here and there will certainly help, but links should not be your primary purpose.

    One important distinction between them two is 'why' you do what you do.

    Generally Linkbuildning is used to bolster your websites' resarch-results and finding its way higher up the rankings. Very seldom is this technique used as a device to sell more products or to get impressions from other sites.

    Social Media can be used both as a communication-tool and as a way for you to gain impressions or drive traffic and potential customers to your website.

    If I were you I would sit down and think about what you want to accomplish with your strategy.

    In my opinion if you can combine both- sharing in social media and link building then just do it. Definitely doing them together will be the best for your business.

    In order to get good search engine rankings, link building is pretty important while social media tends to be very helpful in getting quick traffic to any web page so both are important. Mostly social media sites help drive more direct traffic to your website while quality link building help you to get good SERP which is always a great plus for any website's success.

    One thing that has helped me in getting followers is the buying of Facebook ads in which you can choose your specific niche and even country in which you want to target to, hence getting targeted social traffic from Facebook.
    You may wish to post useful content that are gainful to any potential follower but you will need to expose/promote your page so that can see your content easily.
