I see "share this link to earn the publicist badge"

Where exactly do I share the link?

Take the link from the link option directly underneath the question and then share this specially tailoured link (it contains your user ID to identify you as the source) pretty much anywhere you like, to encourage other people to visit the link (and thus drive traffic to the site).

This could include Facebook, Twitter, any other social networking site or your blog, for example. But could extend to non-web methods, maybe sneakly write it the whiteboards around your school / Uni / workplace, directly tell others you work / learn with, give it to with your mates down the pub, and so on...

For further information on the Publicist badge (and it's family) have a look at the What is Each Badge list.

You must share the link to any other site from where the traffic gets directed to SO

And how does SO know that the link has been shared by me? –  theTuxRacer Oct 25 '10 at 9:22
@Kau Your userID forms part of the link. For example, when I look at the link for this question I see http://meta.stackexchange.com/q/68502/147926. The 147926 is my user ID, the 68502 is the question's ID. –  DMA57361 Oct 25 '10 at 9:27
