Q.3. If I share a blog post at a public forum and traffic from there comes to my blog, would it be considered to be organic traffic?

In a simple words, If you are getting visitors to your websites by 'search engines', the corresponding traffic is called 'organic traffics'. When you invite others via social networking, it is not considered as 'organic traffic' as search engine does not play role in it.

In my opinion, if you have written genuine article with some good keywords with catchy title, you even do not need social networking sharing. Organic traffic will follow you!
