    Hello everyone,

    I have a gardening blog earning one to two bucks a day. I find things on pinterest, then write my own content on the subject then pin it back to pinterest. My pinterest account grows daily. This is all legitimate and I want to grow.

    Im just thinking how do I take this to the next level? I have started pinning from my gardening blog, a small food blog I started, amazon aStores and mylikes. So far mylikes has increased my daily income but not by much.

    So far I am thinking I will just follow more people each day but other than that I do not know how to legitimately expand, I've only ever used bots.

    Would promoting a facebook page be worth anything?

    I look forward to your feedback!

    Are you in any group boards yet. Getting in some high quality non spammy group boards can get you some really serious traffic. But be very careful in such boards and pin very wisely. You will be able to get good amount of followers too.

    How are you using mylikes with it?? are you pinning an image with source url as your mylikes url?

    Yeah I have a lot of boards, 232. Some of which are the biggest food and gardening boards! Some small fashion/beauty boards and some decently sized humor boards.

    For mylikes, I just get the link of the post and put it on pinterest. Some of the boards are low quality though. I am trying to get on some better boards.

    I try to do one or two pins from each niche a day, so two gardening and food posts, two mylikes links and two things from various aStores in many niches.

    The gardening blog is my biggest earner and I am wondering how well Facebook promotion of the fan page would work.

    Yeah you can create a fan page and promote it with custom audience. But do read some relevant threads here to understand the best practices. BTW here is a website that was listed in some thread here which might come in handy when u want to scrape emails from relevant pages: faceids.com. it is free and scrapes well.

    BTW can u invite me to some boards?? :vroam:

    If you had asked me for invites a year ago I would have happily obliged, I used to spam with 15 accounts thousands of pins a day with a home made bot. But after getting a good account banned for inviting too many people to boards I stopped that.

    Hmmm no worries mate. I also miss the old golden times when a 4 hour work resulted in $500 profit from pinterest traffic. Ahhh! I have never had a stable account ever since.

    group boards are the key to success.
    2 pins a day is not enough man.
    you need to step it up to at least 20 pins a day.
    and pin the same pin on multiple boards.
    so 20 pins a day x 20 boards = 400 pins a day that might get you traffic and gives you a higher chance of going viral.
    power in numbers

    Now I could do this, I have bots which could do it. But now we get into the area of spam. I have 5 niches, and I could do 4 from each a day. There is no issue for the amount of content. The problem is then my account starts to look suspicious does it not?

    I had a bot that would pin in chunks, 25 humor, 25 food, 25 garden, 25 fitness to random accounts and boards but this is what got me into trouble and had a lot of accounts banned. The accounts were banned because pinterest has great proxy detection. I tried everything!

    I also refuse to run bots on the main account.

    i understand.
    just be sure to pin very slow, like once every 10 minutes.
    spam is pinning once every 10 seconds, which i used to do, but got banned and learned my lesson.
    just pin during peak hours, usually 8pm - 1am EST.

    I am making $20/ day sharing recipes on food group boards. Recipes is the only that worked right for me. I tried quotes but people don't visit the site,

    recipes are the way to go.

    How many accounts do you have and how many pins daily and followers to achieve that? Do you spin the recipes?
