I think you can get some real, serious & niche based traffic from Linkedin. far better than the other popular medias

    Great tips Rajkumar.

    Certainly sharing regularly helps increasing your traffic to the blog. I fully agree with you if you have to create online authority than its very important to take part in group discussion which really helps to build an authority.

    On LinkdIn you can get more targeted traffic as well.
