Are your pdf plots generated (by R) through babel?  In that case (and
given that you do not rely on absolute positioning) you can make Org /do
the right thing/ for you without the need to call imagemagick manually
in the end.

Making images export correctly across multiple backends is a lot of work
(#+attr_latex and #+attr_html should live happily together), so I'll
stick to a simple example ;-)

* R plot for multiple backends
You might even consider tikz for the LaTeX route instead of pdf.

#+name: demoplot
#+header: :exports results
#+header: :results graphics
#+header: :file (by-backend (latex "demoplot.pdf") (html "demoplot.svg") (t 
#+begin_src R
  ## taken from ?plot
  plot(table(rpois(100, 5)), type = "h", col = "red", lwd = 10,
       main = "rpois(100, lambda = 5)")

#+results: demoplot
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This relies on the by-backend macro from Eric Schulte:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defmacro by-backend (&rest body)
    `(case (if (boundp 'backend) (org-export-backend-name backend) nil) ,@body))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Please do so.  I guess that somehow such a process should be
automatable in the end.
