Like Verizon commercial states "likes don't mean squat", and that's a fact! The correct method to monetize or convert your social posts to valuable website traffic is to SHARE pages from your website to the social network.
STOP sharing other pages' posts at your social pages, or sharing posts fro every other website but your own, simply because you get excited by "likes". That is counter productive! Why bother owning a website if your purpose is to promote other sites for no compensation?!
The correct method is to post anything you like AT YOUR website, then share those articles across the social networks to gain link clicks which deliver visitors and converts to something of value to you.As the image illustration shows, you want to gain from link click and post shares. Comments are great because it implies the author visited your site and has an opinion, plus users tend to debate and that can sometimes go on for hundreds of replies. This helps to keep your post relevant to the social bots and will keep it in view on your followers' home page. However it would be much better if the comments occurred at your site where the article is published.
You are wasting time and effort and simply satisfying your ego by watching useless "likes"
