On your profile you can list links to your site right?

Keep in mind that if you click on on Other as the site "type", you can enter anchor text in there for your links Makes them more descriptive and clickable :P

Those social networking sites, gives you the opportunity to post some links to inform others that this one is like about this.. blah blah blah..

About your question (Do I get traffic from this Social networking site?)

Of course.. One thing you must do to make this links more interesting is to make a unique and catchy thing in your posting title or in your post so that it can be more like to click by the users/you friends.

Hi seoworldclass,

On LinkedIn, you do have the option to put in an URL. However if it is purely for SEO reasons, you shouldn't bother with it as it barely gives any link juice. If you hover your mouse over the link on the profile, you will see it is cloaked quite badly, it is definitely not a "do-follow" link.

However it can still bring traffic to your website if people are interested in visiting the website after reading your profile.
