Top 12 LinkedIn groups Every SEO, Blogging Professionals Must Join
Posted on: April 30, 2011 /
I have been using LinkedIn groups for a while where I get 800+ visits from LinkedIn groups now, there are hundreds of thousands of active LinkedIn groups out there to discuss and share about the topics that are related with your niche. I get around 40% of my referral traffic from LinkedIn groups, 20% from Facebook and rest all referral traffic from various referral sources like Stumbleupon, Twitter. LinkedIn is a best way I find where I use some easy ways to drive traffic and bring people attention to my blog by active discussion with other members in the groups.
Few months back I’ve joined various LinkedIn groups related with my niche topics, initially I added myself as a member of these LinkedIn groups and there is no active discussions done by my side at all, and later I realized that this is the right place to turn millions of people attentions to take my blog in to the next level. So something I learned from LinkedIn groups and not only I get 800+ visits from it, but I gathered many friends and followers within a short span along the way.
