LinkedIn has become much more than a means of finding another job. The world’s largest professional social network is now a valuable publishing platform in its own right, which means you should be posting content to LinkedIn on a regular basis. Doing so can boost traffic to your site, as well as increase your profile within your industry – especially if you have a moderate to large following.
Believe it or not, you can increase your website presence by consistently blogging and adding outstanding content to the internet. What is most beneficial for your website is that by writing exceptional content, you’re increasing your brand awareness. You’re adding value that is specific to your target audience. If you’re doing this correctly, your “audience” is searching for the very search terms (also known as keywords or key phrases) you’re writing about, and thus, it increases your chances of your website being found in the search results pages (known as SERPs).

Google doesn't always include a whole paragraph of text in the Featured Snippet. If you add "Step 1," "Step 2," "Step 3," etc. to the start of each HTML heading within your content (for example, within your H2 tags), Google will sometimes just list out your headings within the Featured Snippet. I've started to see this happen more and more in keywords beginning with "how to".
Traffic data is a great way to take the temperature of your website and marketing initiatives. When you are writing and promoting blog content on a regular basis, you can use traffic data to track results and correlate these efforts to actual ROI. Be sure to look at traffic numbers over long-term intervals to see trends and report on improvement over time.  

Also consider forums where people hang out and discuss various subjects. Asking and answering questions is a great way to increase your own knowledge as well as sharing the knowledge you already have. Being active in these forums (Quora for example) is another way to get good exposure. Remember though, no Spamming, or your time there will be short.
For example, in Facebook, you can target specific groups or user pages that are cohesive with your keywords. You can then promote your website products or blog posts to that audience. In Twitter, you can search by hashtag for some of the keywords you write about. You can then reply or do a mention to that audience and see how your products or blog post can help them solve their problem.

Learning the systems and educating yourself on how to get organic traffic for your website is critical for the success of your business. You will hear some people disagree with this and very often you will see them creating PPC campaigns to drive traffic. This costs money however and for those of you just getting started, maybe there is not a lot of that to spare.
Thanks for sharing this insightful article on how to get organic traffic to my website. I agree with you that it is really frustrating posting articles on a site with little or no traffic to view my content. I think your article is right on time and I agree that creating high quality content, targeting low competition keywords, not being distracted and other vital points you made will really help me generate traffic into my blog. 
Pumpkin Hacking – This is a term that I came across (thank you Peter Da Vanzo) that seems to describe exactly what we did to continue to grow our traffic by double and even triple digits, month after month. The core concept is simple; focus resources on building what works. What this meant for us was paying attention to the search verticals and content that received the most traffic, most comments, most social shares, and being quick to cut the cord on traffic that didn’t perform.
