    Just Buy some cheap ads and promote your site or page if people like it then automatically increase your likes and traffic on your page and site.

    Firstly you increase your following and make friends on social media sites. After that by default increase your traffic or followers, likes.

    Of course this would be the best option, but if there is limited time or capacity to do so, I'd argue that it would be better to concentrate on one or the other depending on what the actual purpose would be.

    Both are still good strategies in 2016. Link building will still be a part of the SEO process. Google won't penalize your website as long as you build links in an ethical way. Social Media also will always be a part of the trend since more and more people are joining social network websites in order to connect and share ideas/opinions with other people.

    I agree with your ideas, Having strong social signal is very important to drive potential traffic and rankings to your website. We need to implement optimal strategy to get organic traffic to our site

    Hi,
    In my opinion, social media is the best platform to get traffic to a website. Nowadays, there are different social media platforms, which are useful in business promotion like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and more.
    Thanks!!

    Gaining followers isn't that much hard just who have to publish updates of useful content in a daily basis.
    Linking building and SMO are totally different things. Link building is good for gaining long term traffic but it may take some time to achieve. But whereas social channels are good for instant traffic.

    Social media is a good way of promoting your site and services. link building is an old technique now and hardly does the trick .Social media helps foster relationships, which in turn helps build link and improves rankings...

    As I've understood, the new Penguin 4.0 update no longer penalizes websites themselves, rather the bad links if they are spammed. I think I read that those links basically don't give anything to the rankings anylonger.

    Link building is an old seo technique and its quite useful too if you ask me but for more exposure and promotion, social media is spot on.

    I'll prefer Link Building. I mean, link building is more effective to rank your website while social media gives you the exposure or generate some traffic. My preference is surely the Link building tactics.

    In my point if you create a new blog focus on Social media , When you are getting a normal traffic then jump in to creating a backlink

    Some people fail to realize that for a Social Media Marketing campaign to be successful, it requires a lot of time and dedication. - If you want to gain the attention of your target market, you need to constantly provide engaging content. You can also curate the content of other pages; share it on your page and add a little commentary in the headline.

    Note that this doesn't give you a lot of likes during the first go. You might have to wait a couple of months to a year before you see a steady increase on your engagements daily.

    I would prefer both if you ask me, as ultimately both will deliver traffic in some way or the other. But, I would start with Social media to get started and then focus on Link Building.
