Social Media is often considered is the factor of google ranking but however, I don’t think that it’ll help you to improve your ranking in the search engine but it can give you a big amount of traffic if you use Social Media correctly.
Nowadays, Facebook is not much effective in terms of generating engaging. Facebook has reduced the reach for pages/groups. You can use Pinterest for generating user engagement and clicks to your website/blog. Pinterest is an image search engine and can do wonders when it comes to engagement. Many Pinterest accounts have crossed 10 Million viewers on a monthly basis.

There are several free RSS directories that can really give you traffic as well as help you to rank higher in the Search Engines. Few RSS Feed Directories: www.Blogadr.com, www.blogsmonitor.com, www.topofblogs.com, www.submitlinkurl.com
You can get backlinks to your blog/site by commenting on other websites/blogs, Joining Forums/ Guest posting, Creating A List type articles which people will themselves link to it & try submitting your blog to free blog directories.
