"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Generating traffic is a combination of both approaches.  If a desired audience lives and dies on facebook then even the best SEO will be irrelevant.  If the desired audience never goes on social media sites then  All of the social media posts will again not give you the desired results

If you look through google analytics and see where the majority of your traffic is coming from then you at least have a baseline.

SEO and Social Media Marketing, both are the best ways to drive traffic on a website. Seo helps to improve your traffic through organic search results and Social media helps to generate traffic through social sharing's...

I agree with Lavi. At my day job, we are losing traffic to the competition because they are on social media 20x more than we are. Their traffic numbers show that it is making a huge impact on them. I would imagine their SEO practices are better than ours as well if they know enough to be on social media so frequently. They have less content than us but because their SEO is fine-tuned and their social media presence is so much better they are getting most of the traffic. Work on both; you can benefit from both.
