There are many good social networking sites out there from where you can get good amount of traffic but you need to understand how specific network work? You should also spare your time to get involved and develop new connection on regular basis.

1. LinkedIn, a Meetup bullentin board, and a Google Group (tech related).

- how much traffic each of them dries to you per month?

It depends, I can have as much as 750 uniques to as little as 100 per month. It depends with how much plugging I do on the above mentioned sites.

Constantly post something from the perspective from the visitor and not from the perspective it can help my business

Important to limit your time and focus on a few. For us:

Priority One - Have a good blog. Good content. Good value for our customers. And hopefully generates inbound links naturally.

Priority Two - We have a good Facebook page, and are developing a good fan base.

Priority Three - Just really starting to utilize Twitter and developing a following.

Priority Four - Diving into social bookmarking, but mostly for backlinks.

Social networking sites like facebook, twitter, myspace, and multiply helps generate traffic on your site/blog.. But of course you have to get more followers and invite more friends to achieve the amount of traffic you want..

I track my social bookmarking pretty effectively in my opinion. Here is what I do: First I set up a folder in my favorites just for social bookmarking website's. Secondly I search the internet to find over 100 bookmarking sites. Then I submit a new link once a week every week to all of the websites in that folder. Over time this increases my link popularity as well as increasing visitors through clicking on the links. It also provides me a easy, quick, and cheap form of advertising. Over time this yields unbelievable results.

Social bookmarking can be good to an extent, if you have power users on your side on sites like Propeller, Delicious, Reddit, StumbleUpon and Digg.

I think that my social/business networks drive much better quality traffic, although the sheer numbers go to facebook. I have given up on twitter altoghether, just was not seeing anything meaningful coming from my posts. Maybe they were not quality posts, I don't know, but I would rather take the time and put it into the many start up networks that crop up every week.

I noticed that hardly anyone here mentions Myspace anymore. A few years ago, Myspace was all the rave. So yes, social media is here to stay, but the particular site is another question.

Social sites are informal in nature and can get uncontrollable. But a good internet marketer can use these websites for socializing as well as for subsequent marketing. When making use of many of the social media sites, well spelt-out objectives have to be put in place in order to build a successful business on the internet.
