I have targeted 3 social netorks. FB, Twitter, and Pinterest. With Facebook I use niche related pictures, quotes, and articles. With twitter I use quotes and links to articles, with Pinterest obviously pictures. Each picture is linked to an article or page. You can link pictures that are not embedded on your page to the page by uploading them direct. To give you an example. I have one picture linked to a page that has been repinned over 2000 times. That means 2000 links pointing to that page. All of them valid and natural.
When I started focusing on FB, I had around 2000 fans that had liked my FB fan page. I now have 21,000 fans. This took about 5 months. Each time I post a picture, quote or article it gets liked and shared. Each like and share gives me a link. Some pictures have over 1000 likes and shares. You just put your link in the comment section for the picture or quote.
With twitter, I keep track of the retweets. Everytime someone retweets or tweets and article or quote, I retweet it. This builds community and clout.
