I have been on pinterest since 2011 when it was just getting noticed as the fastest growing social media site.
If you are a blog or website owner then I want to tell you not to take pinterest lightly.
It has potential to drive quality traffic.
I know a little about the history of pinterest, when it was founded by whom it was founded, the total number of users and even the first pin on pinterest.
But I'm not here today to tell you about the history of pinterest.
I read that years ago.
You can go into your own personal research.
If you want.
So what is pinterest as a traffic power house?
You are allowed to follow a total of 50.000 people.
Pinterest gets interesting when you get the message ''it seems like you are using pinterest for business.''
This doesn't come that easy.
After you have got 10.000+ followers
When you get this message, you will get pinterest analytics.
You will begin to get the following data.
- Avg. daily impressions
- Avg. daily viewers
- Avg.monthly viewers
- Avg. monthly engaged
From your website or blog if you have one.
- Avg. daily impression
- Avg. daily viewers
- Top Pin impressions in the last 30 days
Those are basic data you will get.
You can press on more to see even more data.
Now why is the data important?
From the data, you are going to see your daily and monthly progression which is going to encourage you and tell you what to do more, which pins to promote more.
To get more followers, it is going to depend on the number of followers you have, the number of boards and the number of pins you have.
This is were it gets even more interesting.
If you notice, each pin you pin you are allowed to have your own description of that pin.
whether you are just repining or you took a total new pin from a different website or blog.
And to get it better, there is a section where you are allowed to insert your website.
And all people have to do is click on your pin and click on the section where it says ''visit website.''
I have been on the internet since 2011 trying to gain financial independence doing blogging.
In order to achieve this, I need what is known as internet traffic.
To get this is not a days job.
Infact I have been trying to get it for the last 4 years with little or no success.
But since I capitalised on pinterest, the results have been overwelming.
Pinterest is a traffric machine.
Follow people like crazy until your reach the Mack at 50.000
and get some followers.
Get your followers to engage in the pins you have to share.
And you have a traffic machine just like that in your hands.
Pinterest is dominated by women and so you want to have more boards with more women stuffs.
