According to some of the tech heavy weights like Mashable, Techcrunch etc, Pinterest can drive more traffic to your site than Linkedin, Youtube & Google + combined.

If you simply need to activate the image hover buttons, you'll find a section near the end of this post which links to a very basic solution that gets the job done in less than 2 minutes.
Choose Which Pages The Button Appears On
Here you can select where you want the button to display. Individual posts & pages would be best.
Where To Display The Button
Here you can either use one of the check boxes and display the buttons before or after your content. Another option is to use a short code and display the button anywhere.
Hover Button Options
Here's the new featured added to the image hover button part of the plugin:
- Place the hover button in any of the 4 corners of images.
- Use any of the 30 included button designs for the hover button. They can be different from your page-level “Pin It” button.
- Upload or select your own custom button for the hover button AND the page-level button.
