    I have a few silly questions to ask regarding social media. I have never focused on social media in my SEO efforts that much and it has been a mistake. Lots of people in SEO recommend having a good social presence. I wanted to ask a few questions as I started a new white hat blog and want to have a good social presence.

    I understand Facebook and twitter. I post to my twitter account whenever I make a new post and follow people in my niche and few of them follow back. I don't get the other social media platforms.

    -What to do about pinterest. I have created a couple of boards and pin stuff related to my niche found on the net. How can I use it to my advantage? Also, how to get people to follow me or my pinterest board?

    - I don't have a clue on how to go about instagram.

    -What about linkedin? I thought it was for business professionals? Do I make a profile for my website? How do I manage this?
    -What about google plus one. Should I just post stuff there and hope future visitors to my website will +1 that and follow me on google plus

    Any other important social media sites I should focus on?

    Thank you

    Linkedin wont benefit you here.
    You must go with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, delicious and a few more.

    For google+, You can follow other users and wait they night follow you back.
    Or can join communities, Post content related to them and I am sure you will get followers.
    Rest Sky is the limit.

    Cheers

    I wouldn't do too much at once to start with. Just focus on facebook and twitter (and maybe one other) to start and see how well you do with those.

    Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn might mot even suit your business. Don't waste your time on them if they are unlikely to give you anything in return.

    A good social presence doesn't mean having a presence on every platform, it means being active on the right platforms.

    This. Start with the most known and used ones: Facebook and Twitter, and expand to others depending on your niche. Not every social network is required for different types of websites/blogs.

    You can monetize by following ways...

    Facebbok:-
    Create Fb page on your niche and buy some fake likes to your page so it will look good and share your post there.
    Scrap some fb mail from page and group related to your niche and invite them to like your page.
    Join with Some fb group related to your niche and share your post, dont spam it.

    Twitter:-
    Create Unique twitter account with name of your niche eg if it is "weight loss niche" name it with "bestweightlossingidea" "freeweightlossingidea" something unique.
    And search for top rated with more followers twitter page in your niche, and follow their users with "tweepi" they will follow you.
    And tweet your every post.

    Hope it will hep for you!
