Your problem is engagement with your fan base. You just can't post your articles and leave it at that. You must engage.
That's what I do, they response positively, and I get 0.5%. It might depend on the niche.
Never mind, it is a fraction of the site's total traffic.
(BTW: I suspect GA is not so accurate but that's another story. )
I have seen twitter accounts with more than 100k followers, still they have a poor traffic site.
Social media is as an add-on element, not the real thing.
