What contents can we say are engaging? Your articles should fall between 250-500 words for short articles and between 500-700 words for longer articles. Actually contents that will be engaging can even be as long as 1000-2000 words. Read how to write an article here. Not only this, your contents should be written under attention grabbing headlines.Your contents should be keyword rich.It should be informative, educative as well as interesting.
Furthermore, your contents should, (whether they be comments, remarks or full articles) be friendly, in a conversational style.
Not only that, share stories, share experiences, use pictures, graphics, charts, and share statistics.
You should use and show examples as well as making sure that even your paragraphs are broken into segments.
In addition to the above, write your articles with tittles, and paragraphs with sub-titles. Your tittles should be in bolder text with every first letter capitalized.

Social Networking Traffic Formula
Start with Facebook. What are you doing on Facebook? Are you there to be entertained? Or are you there to entertain?
But I should state here that though people get on Facebook for entertainment purposes, for your own, go there for business. Create an engaging Facebook business page, and try paying for some clicks.

Go On Twitter.
This is different. Create a personal account. Play down on business accounts. People on twitter like to follow rich contents on personal accounts than business accounts. Why? They don’t want their inboxes to be filled with “business rubbish”…sothey feel.
But I must say here don’t go alone, participate in discussion and interact with people. Get heard and known.
Go To LinkedIn
LinkedIn is meant for people who want to promote themselves in professional capacities. It doesn’t work for affiliates, but it works for your driving traffic to your own site offering products and services.
Post your url in your profile and actively participate in group discussions. The more value you attach to your post, the more attention you attract to your profile and the more of this traffic you will be able to draw to your website.
Approach leading blogs in your niche to grant you an opportunity to guest post. An engaging content can pull lots of visitors to your site if such request is granted. So you need to do this on mainly high traffic blogs and forums.
